slow and crashes all the time
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Despite not using heavy programs, just light day-to-day browsing, the computer crashes almost every day, requiring a restart. A feather!

Don't Buy
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I don't know where to begin, the screen is very dark even when charging so you practically can't watch anything when the room is even moderaltely lit. The sound is very low so I always have to connect it to headphones even when I'm watching on my own. The monitor doesn't bend back enough so it's not very comfortable to work with. I sadly didn't get to use it enough before the return deadline so now I'm stuck with it! very poor value for money I wouldn't recommend buying it.

Do not buy in 2019....Lasted 30 mins
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Bought this cheap laptop for my brother. It only lasted 30 mins, after a restart it kept showing a blank screen. It's also ridiculously slow, especially coming from a mac user. Although its cheap i say pay that little extra and buy something worthwhile like a Lenovo with more Ram, better processor and a SSD.

Poor performance
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

This laptop is inexpensive, however that doesn't excuse the really poor performance. This laptop will struggle to play YouTube videos where there is no internet issues. I don't know what processor it uses but this laptop has to run at pretty much 100% capacity regardless of what you are doing.

Near perfect laptop for the price
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

First I should say I bought this on a 'Black Friday' type deal at a lower price than it is normally, so bear that in mind for this review...


+Excellent 15.6" full HD screen (1920x1080). In this day and age where many circa 6" phone screens are 2k or 4k resolution, I find it odd that many 15.6" laptops still come with screens less than 1080p, yet many are indeed still only 1366x768 (768p)! This screen produces good enough colours and at full brightness is bright enough in a typical indoor environment on a bright sunny day (you'd struggle outside though).

+Excellent track pad. It works exactly as expected and the two-finger scrolling gesture (the best scrolling method imo) works very well.

+Good battery life. It's not going to last all day, but typically you will get the circa 4 hours life advertised when not plugged in.

+Build quality is good enough & seems better than most laptops in this price range.

+The built in speakers are good, they're not going to blow you away obviously, but they are far better than most laptops in this price bracket (and some more expensive models!).

+USB type C port, this is the latest and greatest USB connector and is featured on this model. Many laptops in this price bracket are yet to offer USB-C.

+Not too much bloat-ware installed from the factory. I was surprised to see little in the way of unnecessary software installed on this with only a couple of pointless or plain not-very-good programs that I uninstalled (*cough* McAfee Anti-virus *cough*)

+It's fast. The Ryzen R3-2200U processor is bang up-to-date and is fast & efficient. Put this into a CPU comparison website and you'll find this is very similar (and indeed better in some ways, most notably the built in GPU) to an entry level i3 8th generation processor. Think about it, most laptops in this price range come with Intel processors but you'd only be getting a lowly Pentium or the likes with a poor GPU, thus this AMD Ryzen makes much more sense here.
