    Bought this last night for my uncle

    Set it up and works well, surprised just how fast the emmc storage was..

    Display is excellent for the price, 1080p IPS

    Keyboard isn't backlit just FYI

    battery seems to go around 5-6 hours on 70% brightness

    All in all, Under $700, pretty damn good!

    I've never seen eMMC on a fairdinkum laptop before, only Chromebooks. Strewth.

      Yes, one of the ways they cut the cost appears to use an eMMC drive rather than a true SSD.

    CPU is underwhelming, however it's a good product for a student or light work tasks.

  •  

    It is a tough price segment with lots of competition and options, and whats available on the market is more or less whats on offer here. So in that regards this deal gets an meehhh

    If budget can be stretched a tiny bit more then Acer Aspire 5/Swift 3 of Lenovo ideapad , Asus Vivobook is good bang for buck.

    $788 - $758 after cash back. Much better 11 Gen graphics + NVME SSD.

    Looked at 2 different F515 disassembly videos on YouTube (one of them here shows a discrete GPU). Couple of things stand out:

    There is a void / cavity for a 2.5" SSD, but it is unpopulated and there isn't a 90-degree SATA flex cable going from the motherboard to that HDD mounting point. This means you'll also need to source the cable if you want to throw in a regular 2.5" drive. Time to make that Aliexpress account.

    The teardown video shows a M.2 slot, but it is unclear if the Australian JB Hi-Fi Super Cut-Down Edition™ has opted for even more cost cutting and removed the NVME slot entirely and just went ahead and soldered an eMMC module in it's place.

    There's only a single DRAM slot, so you're stuck with single channel memory.

    The battery looks to be only 30 whr update: actually 37whr according to this website, but that's still underwhelming. For comparison, the entry level Lenovo Thinkpad E14 and E14 Gen 2 has a 45 Wh battery.

      Any forthcoming sale of the Thinkpad E15 Gen 2. Been a while since the last sale… I've purchased one previously and keen to purchase another one. Good enough for my needs for MS Office + Internet + Watching.
