This is way overpriced, but it does look. Nice hashtag bars lets, keep it moving. Alright, so heres the main thing to keep in mind if youre gon na buy this device, especially at the budget configuration. This is a basic laptop, its not a powerhouse.

Now you do have windows. 10. Hello. Let me see if i get my face from behind the camera bong there. It is im gon na take the type cover off for a minute, because i want yall to see it does magnetize to the bottom and its a nice sturdy magnet if you want to flip the back now. This is one of the things that i love about. This, as opposed to ipads, i think eye patch and all tablets should have this little flap on the back. So you can stand it up like this. Now you can make the keyboard rise up a little bit or you can make it flat and it does work now ill. Show you more about the keyboard in a minute. Lets. Take a look at the actual display beautiful 10.5 inches 1080p. Now you do have some big bezels but youre going to need that to hold this in your hand, without touching the screen again, if you want to look at the ports, headphone jack, usb type c, this is that silly plug. Now you can charge it with the plug or you can charge it with usb type c now, since this uses so much low power, you can charge this off of a power bank, your cell phone brick, or you can get a big boy – 100 watt, brick.
Whatever you want anything is going to charge this up. You dont need to walk around with that big proprietary plug. Now, if you do want to drop some extra memory in here, you got a micro sd card slot in the back thats, pretty much it okay. So now lets try some basic stuff now lets take a look at the backlit keyboard. Now this is one of the reasons why i like this better than the surface gold laptop. If you havent memorized your keys and you like to work at night, you got a backlit keyboard. Now this is low, medium and high. Now look how bright! This is all right. So if youre, a vampire like me and you like to work in the middle of the night, backlit keys on deck all right, so heres some basic everyday tasks now i just opened up gmail lets – do a little email surfing now im using the mouse right here.

So this way nobody calls them all right all right. So the pen is dope again a lot of windows. Apps use these little sub boxes that are really tiny. This pen is going to come in handy, alright, so well exit out of that and there it is all right now, even though this laptop doesnt have a fan, you can still run the videos but its going to be slow and its going to take a long Time now, when you get it its going to be in windows, safe mode, if you want to download some third party software youre going to have to take it out of safe mode, like i did on this one and i downloaded sony vegas now. This is the same software that i use to edit. My videos on my big boy laptop, so lets try one real quick lets go to render. I will name this one test lets pick a format. Internet hd lets hit render okay and here it is now lets see how long it takes to go to one percent now, usually on my big boy laptop this size. Clip would take maybe a couple of minutes now right now its almost 30 seconds, and we need to get to one percent yet all right there. It is one percent. So, like i said you can do it its just going to be slow and its going to take a long time. All right so now lets try a little bit of gaming.
