    Good price for a laptop with all the basic modern features.


    Can anyone clarify if the price vs specs is worth it for this? Especially the HDD. I can't believe companies still put HDD as the sole storage device. They become way to slow after a while. I guess the user will give up & purchase a new laptop.


      If you ditch the thin bezels and thin body, you can find much better specced laptops for around this price point. This one is going to be slow.


      think the idea is that some people need lots of cheap storage 1tb, rather than speed , if speed was your concern you wouldn’t buy an i3. some people need the storage eg if backing up a 256gb phone.
      nice thing at least is that it’s fhd ips screen so that if you did upgrade the drive to an ssd.

        Upgrade to ssd the CPU would be fine


        The speed isn't that big a turnoff. It's the slower access time and general unresponsiveness of HDD as an OS drive that's the real turnoff.

        They could have put in a tiny SSD for OS with the HDD as a secondary drive to get the best of both worlds.

        Personally, I think it isn't cheap enough. If you pay an $200, you can get an i7-8550U with 8GB and 256GB SSD from OW with local warranty. Those individual upgrades are worth well more than $200. But you won't have as thin bezels.


          @lostn: $200 more for an i7 and 256GB SSD from Officeworks. Sounds great. I was able to find just this one for $1397

          Can you please share the link for an i7 laptop from OW for $800 ?


            @paul11: They're out of stock at the moment. It's not on their web site. But I have it in my ebay watched item list. Won't be advertised if you search for it though.


        You're right, storage is a major factor.

        Though have you ever seen a laptop run after a year with HDD? It's unbearable. I'm only talking about basic computing like start up, opening folders etc.

        I would take 120gb ssd any day over a larger hdd. I'm doing it with my computer.
