I bought a lenovo laptop 5 months ago because I was told they were a reliable PC brand. The device worked really well for 5 months and suddenly stopped working within it’s 5th month of warranty. The screen wouldn’t turn on at all even though you could here the fan working.
Because I still had warranty, I thought it could be repaired and all would be well but unfortunately Lenovo warranty is some of the worst customer service I’ve ever had to deal with. Although I was originally told it would take 10-12 business days to repair my laptop it’s been almost a month and a half and there has been no progress made on my laptop.
Their customer service dodges questions and refuses to help you. It seems like every time a call I have to wait half an hour just to be told to wait 5 business days for a response. A response which I never actually receive.
If you want a computer that is reliable, don’t buy Lenovo. If you want a computer that comes with warranty that actually works, don’t buy Lenovo. Overall this is a brand that has seriously fallen in quality and does nothing to support their customers once they’ve bought their device.
I really like this pretty little machine. I bought it for working from home and for personal use. Its lightweight and surprisingly small. It fits into my backpack for work and my luggage and is only slightly bigger than my tablet.
I love the responsive keys and the brilliant display. It’s a little awkward to use as a “tablet” but I like being able to flip it around for viewing videos and other view-only operations. The processor is surprisingly quick, and I’m amazed at how well it runs my favorite game, The Sims 4.
It does burn the battery quickly when gaming, but I can do regular work on it and it lasts almost my whole work day. It charges quickly and lets me get back to work. The sound quality is so-so, but it projects to the bluetooth quite nicely.
I love this little computer. It’s my new little buddy.

Before posting this review, is it possible for Best Buy or Lenovo to respond privately? I don’t want Lenovo’s past security mistakes to have a negative impact on this Lenovo Yoga 7i-15 laptop. The machine is performing very well.
I’ve purchased several laptops in the last 20 years with most of them being purchased from various Best Buy locations. After experiencing the issue described below, I came across some concerning information from various websites about the Lenovo Brand.
I want to be confident that I can trust the Lenovo Support Site to be free from malware and other security vulnerabilities (https://support. lenovo. com/us/en/) I also have screenshots and other details surrounding the issue below that I will be glad to share via email if Lenovo wants to investigate the issue further.
After removing Lenovo’s pre-installed McAfee and installing a fresh copy (that I already own from McAfee); the push notifications stopped. It feels like the tools pre-installed were not adequate to protect the device which makes me question whether I can trust driver updates from Lenovo’s site.
The push notifications were pretending to be McAfee solutions in a Lenovo wrapper. After cleaning this machine, it has been five days and those push-notifications have not returned and all scans continue to be clean.
I’ve had this laptop a few days but prior to installing my own Antivirus Protection, I was hit with some push notification pretending to be McAfee. The pre-installed McAfee software didn’t stop whatever type of attach was happening on this laptop.
After stopping the attack, I performed a few malware scans to try and identify the source of my issue. More than one application identified pre-installed software that was connected to Lenovo Applications or Lenovo Support files.
This prompted me to do some additional digging and now I question if Lenovo allows third-party applications to be installed that track or share my browsing habits without my knowledge. Some elements found were RiskWare, Malvertising, Malware and one possible Trojan.
After researching, I learned about some questionable practices from Lenovo in the past, but I would hope that since Best Buy is now selling this brand, those security vulnerabilities from the past have been fully resolved.
In the past, I have purchased a number of laptops from another vendor and I trusted their website to provide clean software updates, driver updates and even allowed the site to perform scans on my laptop to ensure it was operating correctly.
However, due to my experience with this malware and questions around security and integrity, I’m cautious about my purchase from Lenovo. I’ve not yet loaded any of my own PCI / sensitive confidential information on this machine as I continue to vet my security concerns.
Are there some USA based security reviews that you can share with me along with some safe-guards around how often the Lenovo support site is pen-tested for security vulnerabilities? I understand that most all laptop manufacturers install some bloatware and my practice is to remove all unneeded applications as soon as I can review the manuals to figure out what is not needed for the performance of the laptop.
I was hit with this repeated push notifications prior to removing unnecessary applications. I realize that various browsers and even Windows 11 itself may try to collect user data and preferences but the customer needs to be informed of those collections’ efforts (in the fine print of agreements).
I sincerely like this Lenovo Yoga 7i-15 and it satisfied my need for a Windows 11 compliant machine but I need to sure up my security concerns.
I purchased the laptop on 6/14 but had to order it because the store didn’t have it in stock. The salesperson was very helpful in getting me through the process as I’ve never ordered an item or had one shipped to my home before.
It arrived on 6/17 and thought the Dark Moss color would bother me but I actually like it. I also like the smooth metal finish. Upon getting it set up which was much simpler than I thought it would be, I moved copies of my files from the cloud and downloaded only the apps I wanted to put on it, keeping it as uncluttered as possible.
Both transitions went smoothly and even getting my Office 2016 up and running was no problem. Although I’ve only had it for a couple of weeks it is a pleasure to use, though the numeric keypad has taken some getting used to because the touchpad is off center, it is something I wanted when doing research for the purchase.
The colors are bright and the sound is crisp and clear. The backlit keyboard is helpful when I’m in my room and the blinds are closed. I’ve used it in both tent and stand mode, the latter for playing games where a keyboard isn’t needed.
Having seen a couple of other reviews that the hinges may break I’ve been cautious when using the tent or stand modes. The battery definitely lasts a long time. I can take it outside and sit and work on it for a couple of hours and still have more than 70%.
Fingerprints are the only real problem I’ve had but I wipe the screen every night after I shut the laptop down. The only negative thing I’ve found is that when I flip it to use in tent mode the screen doesn’t follow and I’ve had to do it manually, the rotation lock doesn’t work for some reason.
It doesn’t bother me to do it manually as I don’t use it in tent mode very often. I admit I missed getting the sale price but since I needed a new laptop it was worth the price, as it had everything I wanted in a computer and it fits my needs perfectly.
Hi everyone, I have had my Yoga 9i since August. I didn’t have any problems with it freezing (requiring a reset, losing any current work) until September when I started using it more for grad school and my research, sadly past the return date from Best Buy.
My device freezes randomly with no indication of abnormal temperature changes, processes started, crash reports, CPU, GPU, or memory usage. I do nothing intensive on the device (sometimes literally nothing), and have actually been finding my phone to be more reliable to search the internet when sitting in front of my own computer.
I treat the entire machine as one large scratch directory. Factory resetting and reinstalling Windows has been the norm, instigated by Lenovo support countless times (I tried Windows 11 yesterday, it is a huge power drain and did not fix the problem).
I am unable to do anything that requires work on my machine since I can never trust when it will freeze next. I do all my work on servers or the web. Lenovo support initially addressed the problem with the usual paths of checking windows, drivers, resetting, but then they began sending technicians to repair hardware.
They replaced my motherboard, and later, my SSD. During the repairs, the technicians did something to cause my screen to be non-responsive to touch and my pen and lose functionality of some keys. Additionally, the service technicians replacing these parts have scheduled and rescheduled numerous times, resulting in me taking time off from work or missing classes to make appointments that end up not being followed through on.
They recently suggested sending the device back to the warehouse to fix it, but that would result in me losing my device entirely for days to weeks with no guarantee it will work or be new hardware. Retracing my steps with every Lenovo technician has resulted in hours lost on the phone with no resolution, causing stress and missing school or work.
Technicians have failed to follow through on initiating repairs, calling back, or helping me speak with supervisors to voice my concerns. Lenovo has scheduled a screen replacement to try and fix the loss of the touch screen.
I am concerned about the repair and if it will cause further issues with my device (and I will have to take time out of work/school again to have the repair expedited). I am sure Lenovo has lost more money building my piecemeal computer than they made selling it (the Ship of Theseus, computer version).
Sadly, I do not have that level of disposable income, with this device being the most expensive investment I have made in my future to date (despite school lol). I require a computer for my research, work, and education.
I am losing all faith in Lenovo to address this issue. I cannot believe I am having these problems with such a new machine.

I use this laptop for online shopping, surfing the internet and Zoom. No problems whatsoever. The processor is very fast and reliable. I love the background keyboard light. My favorite feature is that you can use the cursor or the touchscreen.
But since most electronics company are not giving detailed instructions with products anymore, just the quick set up or guide, I suggest downloading the user manual online or Google it. I definitely recommend this laptop.
I got an open box item from the seller! That’s surpassing my expectation. The laptop works great and fast enough for me. The only possible issue is that the hard drive is only 128GB. If you need to download a lot or many applications to install, you will have to upgrade the hard drive.

Overall: Pretty solid laptop. This is my daily driver for school work and it has almost replaced taking notes on paper after a brief adjustment period. The Pen: The pen that comes with this laptop might be the only annoying part.
I started having issues with its accuracy on and off within the first few months. The pen broke completely within the first year. If the pen isn’t a big factor, then this is a fine laptop, but the 2-in-1 functionality may be an unnecessary feature.
The Screen: Can’t recommend paying for 4k for most people though. The screen is so small that most people won’t be able to notice any real difference between a 1080p image and 4k. If you hook up the device to a larger 4k display at home or work regularly, then the added cost of a 4k screen might be more justified.
That being said, a 15. 6″ screen is my personal preference because anything smaller gets too cramped for me. So if you go smaller, then a 4k resolution gets more and more pointless in my view. Trackpad/Keyboard: Pretty satisfactory.
Nothing all that good or bad to make note of. Position of the trackpad was a little strange in my opinion, but it’s not any real issue. Sound/Webcam: Don’t plan on this being a great set of speakers at parties.
It’s perfectly fine if you’re just watching videos in bed or listening to music while doing chores, but it isn’t a dedicated sound system, so temper your expectations. I have issues getting the laptop to properly work with my headphones and galaxy buds.
I can hear audio through apps like Zoom just fine, but the laptop does not receive input properly from headphones (via wired or bluetooth; and both have been tested with other devices successfully). The camera switch is a cool feature though.
Camera quality is also fine. Nothing particularly special. Build Quality and I/O: Pretty pleased with the physical build so far. Aesthetically, it is a very pretty laptop, and the hinges feel pretty good.
It doesn’t open up fully without holding the base down, but it transitions smoothly into tablet mode. The ports are a big factor for me personally. With HDMI, 1 USB-A port, 2 USB-C ports (with one for power delivery), and a headphone jack, I have enough flexibility to connect just about any device.
There is no ethernet port or SD card slot though, so if those are important to you, you will need a dedicated dongle (and at that point the ports on the actual laptop are unnecessary, so that might justify shopping for other options).
In summary, I’m pretty pleased overall. It’s my personal, school, and work laptop. I do a lot of note taking, writing, and some coding from time to time (nothing fancy or all that demanding except some MATLAB work).
If you’re searching for something with lots of power from a GPU, this isn’t for you. But if you’re searching for a higher-end PC for everyday use, then this will fulfill most of your needs.
BUYER BEWARE, AVOID THE INTEL ARC GRAPHICS: I ordered a brand-new CTO HP Spectre 16 from HP. com back in June with the Intel i7-1260P CPU/Intel ARC A370M GPU, 32GB RAM, 2TB 4×4 SSD, AMOLED display, and the Intel AX411 Wi-Fi card – on paper, a truly high performing and well equipped computer that was expensive.
I waited for a month and a half before I finally received the product in the mail and in the interim, I saw various videos and forum posts about how **terrible** the Intel ARC GPU lineup was. I contemplated cancelling my order; however, I decided to give the computer the benefit of the doubt and experience it hands-on before and see if Intel would fix the problems before doing that.
Initially, the Intel ARC A370M GPU showed itself to be very buggy, I updated the GPU with drivers from Intel’s page (as HP does not have a support page yet for this product (. go figure. )) and it seemed to fix the GPU and allow basic usability.
However, this changed when I attempted to use basic programs such as Adobe Acrobat, Lightroom, Photoshop, or even do some light gaming. The programs would either: (1) not load at all and crash; (2) be pixelated/have artifacts that rendered them unplayable (Sims 4 and SWTOR would not play on the ARC A370M at all); or (3) blue screen the entire system.
I cannot believe that HP (and other manufactures that use this GPU, for that matter) would allow something this terrible to be sold to customers in what seems like a beta test run. For the $$$$, you’d expect to not feel like a guinea pig with a terrible buggy product that cannot even run basic day-to-day programs or do light gaming.
On top of that, Intel is rumored to be pulling the plug on the ARC graphic series altogether, which does not inspire confidence in the long run. My suggestions to you is to: (a) purchase the Iris Xe versions of this laptop as that graphics card is acceptable for daily usage; or, (b) to purchase a different laptop and avoid the ARC A370M and all other variants of the Intel ARC lineup altogether as they are terrible first-generation products.
15 days into this, I am very disappointed in this computer and I have spoken to HP to obtain a return authorization for the product. You’ve been warned.
I own the 2020 15. 6 inch HP Spectre x360 and am a big fan of the Spectre line of laptops. Decided to try out the new 16-inch non-OLED HP Spectre x360 with integrated graphs and fell in LOVE with it (will give my 2020 Spectre to a family member).
I was, however, curious if the 16-inch OLED HP Spectre x360 with discrete graphs might be a worthwhile upgrade. Newsflash, it ain’t. Everything between the two laptops is the same except for the screen resolution, GPU, and amount of internal storage.
Sadly, there is no major difference between the two screens (HPs non-OLED screens are that good). If anything colors on the OLED model appear a bit oversaturated. I do not game, do not edit videos, 3D model, etc.
so the more powerful GPU is just an unnecessary expense, rather than an upgrade. Since both laptops have a microSD card slot, more internal storage is also an expense for me. I purchased this laptop for about $50 less than the 16-inch non-OLED model (open-box discount and Best Buy gift cards).
Even at around the same price of the 16-inch non-OLED model, I still won’t recommend this laptop because of the inferior battery life associated with OLED screen. Results of standardized battery tests (continuous video loop at 150 nits screen brightness or 38%) conducted by internet reviewers reveal a battery life of only 6 to 8 hours.
Conversely, the battery life of my 16-inch non-OLED Spectre is outstanding. I get 14 hours of continuous YouTube (screen brightness at 38%, battery saver and wifi on, bluetooth off). Even more impressive is that I get 8.
5 hours with screen brightness at 100%, wifi on, bluetooth off, battery saver off, and power mode on best performance. So even at full power (100% screen brightness, power mode on best performance), the 16-inch non-OLED Spectre’s battery lasts longer than the 16-inch OLED Spectre’s battery.
Lighter than ever: This laptop is built to go wherever you go. Work and play naturally on the adaptable, ultra-light HP Pavilion x360 convertible PC. See more. Hear it all. Your photos and videos fill more of the screen with a thin bezel design.

I was looking for a small laptop to take it with me when I travel or go to work. It is not easy to find a 11-12 inches laptop nowadays which is not a Chromebook (I am not a fan of the Chrome OS). So, I was very excited when I saw this option.
I’ve tried it out only for one day so far and I can’t be happier! For the money this is a very powerful machine. The screen quality is unexpectedly decent (the colors are vibrant but not oversaturated).
The touch screen is very responsive (not as on an iPad or a Samsung tablet but better than on a Microsoft Surface device). The build quality is not flimsy at all and the keyboard is very comfortable to type on.
I was also a bit concerned about the speed since it is only 4 GB of ram, but so far this laptop is fast enough not to become annoying. I would advise to delete as many unnecessary apps as possible and switch to Google Chrome Internet browser.
The ports offered on this computer is another BIG perk (since you only get usb C ones on many flagships). I need to do presentations at work on a daily basis, so a full HDMI port is a blessing. Usb A and C ports are also available and an inclusion of a micro SD memory card slot is very generous as well.
Maybe the only downside would be the quality of the speakers, but it doesn’t really matter for me since I use headphones anyway. Another thing which impressed me is the casting feature! I was able to connect to my TV screen seamlessly in seconds and mirror the laptop screen projecting all types of content (no cable needed).
The hinges are very stable and those who use other angles or tablet mode won’t be disappointed. This is a stellar device which fills the niche of small, portable laptops on the market and for which you won’t pay an arm and a leg.
I’m only rating this one star because the battery life is ridiculously poor! I’ve owned this little laptop for about a month, I have only used it about five times. The battery starts heating up immediately & and starts to discharge fast! I’m not sure if mine has a faulty battery from the get go, does anyone else have this problem? I love everything else about the laptop, but I’m afraid it won’t last long due to the battery.
The battery literally heats up very hot up to 15 or 20 minutes of using it, it scares me to continue to use it based on how quickly the battery heats up! I got this as a Christmas gift and Best Buy only gives a 15 day warranty return or exchange period so I’m probably stuck with it.
Hopefully they can help me out with this problem. It may just be mine that is faulty.
I expected this to be a little slow, but man this thing out of the box was just pure wasted time waiting for it to load. I wasted my BestBuy bucks on this too. I have never returned an item I have purchased from here, but after the initial set up, it was just not a pleasant experience overall.
If anything HP could have at least made the onboard memory expandable instead of fixating it to the board and leaving it at 4GB. Going to 8GB would have turned out better if that could have been upgraded and I would have offered a much better review than this.
Yes I know I could have opted to purchase the i3 8GB version, but I should not be forced to spend 69% more for just wanting more memory while I was fine with the screen size and SSD side of 128GB. Funny thing about this is the m.
2 nvme is upgradeable so I could have more SSD space if I really wanted too.

This is my 4th Lenovo Chromebooks; 500E, 2x Flex 5 and now a Flex 5i. I’ve also bought several for my older parents and in-laws, whom use me as IT support. I’ve owned Acer and ASUS Chromebooks, lots of Macs and Windows Laptops and I work in a Linux environment during the day.
The Lenovo Chromebooks literally does absolutely everything 95% of users would need, excellent battery, very robust hardware, quality feel and the simplicity of a Chromebook. Another under appreciated value of Chromebooks is the default Cloud integration of data and settings.
For users who don’t really know what they are doing or young kids who may physically destroy or forget the laptop, it is fantastic to be able to login to a new device, enter their single password and recover everything.
This could be accomplished in a Windows or Mac environment but the temptation to store files, especially pictures, it too great for most users. Default integration with their phone is also a life saver.
The only reason why I didn’t give Lenovo a 5 star is my experience with a warrantee issue. One of my Lenovo Flex 5 has a defective board. It can’t project video through a 6′ USB-C to HDMI cable. All the other Chromebooks can and it can project through a 3′ cable.
The WiFi signal is also weaker than the others. I suspect it’s simply a power issue. I spent weeks talking to people and taking it to a 3rd party warrantee support. I would have to mail it away and everyone warns me it may take months.
And they may say nothing is wrong and blame it on my cable, which is what nearly all support so far has tried to say. My other option is drive 4 hours to the actual Lenovo warrantee support. Drop it off, wait who knows how long and then drive another 4 hours to pick it up.
For a $500 laptop, I just can’t justify it. Basically buyer beware. Assume it no warrantee.

I have been stalling on buying a new laptop for a few months because I couldn’t find the right machine with the right features at the right price. Then I got an email from Lenovo with a link to a sale and that all changed.
Fast Processer – check, USB-C charging – check, 2-n-1 – check, 1080p with a brilliant touch screen – check, sleek design – check, aluminum case – check, in-stock and ready to ship – check! So I pulled the trigger and it was delivered several days ahead of schedule in less than a week.
As with any new tech toy, it takes a little time to get used to the features. The biggest surprise was how well the handwriting recognition works with the included/docked pen. I can scribble in the box and it generally knows what I intend.
This makes using the machine in tablet mode a very user friendly device. Speed is not an issue with the included CPU and 8GB of memory. WiFi6 is a nice addition and since my home network can support the connection speed, backups to local network storage are quick and efficient.
The screen is beautiful. I opted for 1080p vs 4k because at 14″, the pixels are already small enough! The extra money for a 4K would be wasted. The leather cover is a really nice touch. It has a great feel and steps this device up from a toy to something elegant.
Battery life is good and it charges quickly with the included 65W USB-C charger. I may add a single-cabled dock so I can easily use it with my desktop monitor keyboard and mouse. One cable for everything is very convenient.
It’s also very quiet and doesn’t seem to get as hot as other laptops that I have used. The only complaints I have are these: It came pre-loaded with Win10 and the immediate upgrade to Win11 took many hours – seems like it could have shipped with Win11 from the factory.
The camera doesn’t work with Windows Hello. The touchpad and fingerprint reader need a more pronounced edge – they are impossible to see if the ambient light is low. The Pen could be a little bigger in diameter and perhaps have a larger battery.
I’ve had the Yoga 9i for a little over two months now, and it’s an amazing laptop, to say the least. For starters, it’s beautiful. I love the leather cover, speaker design, and fully glass touchpad area.
It feels like it weighs almost nothing when carrying it in my bag and is small enough to use in the car when I’m out and about without turning myself into an origami work of art when trying to type. The battery life is phenomenal, and most of the time, I leave the house without my charging cable.
I’ve yet to get even close to running out of juice when away from home. The video quality for zoom calls is more than passable, and I love that it has a built-in camera cover. Sound quality is top-notch, and I can’t believe that no one else has thought of designing it in the same way.
All that said, it isn’t perfect. The keyboard is comfortable and spacious, but I would like more ‘clickability’ in the keys. Sometimes they feel sort of soft, or maybe I just enjoy hearing that ‘click clack’ sound when I type.
Also, the touchpad is overly sensitive, in my opinion, sometimes resulting in unwanted onscreen actions taking place, and I still haven’t discovered a way to reduce the sensitivity to an acceptable level.
(Like many of us out there, I’ve become a lazy typist over the years, resting my hands on the trackpad area when they should be raised. As a result of the trackpad sensitivity, you’ll have no choice but to type correctly on this laptop.
I’m complaining, but I’m actually typing the way I should now. ) Finally, this laptop doesn’t support Windows Hello and uses a fingerprint reader instead. The fingerprint reader, up to this point, has been hit or miss.
It works about 65% of the time for me so far. Unfortunately, I have to leave my finger on the reader area for long periods (up to 10-15 sec in some cases) for it to work, if it works at all. None of the detractors I’ve mentioned are game breakers, but I think people should know about them before purchasing.
I’d still buy this laptop again in a heartbeat. For a portable laptop, it pretty much hits all areas I wanted to address: Long battery life, minimal footprint, reliability (we’ll see), business-appropriate appearance, lightweight, internally housed pen, and fast.
For business on the go, this is an amazing laptop.
Keep up with growing business demands with this 13. 3-inch FHD ASUS ZenBook Flip two-in-one touchscreen laptop. The Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM support smooth multitasking, while the 512GB SSD delivers rapid file access and storage times.
This ASUS ZenBook Flip two-in-one touchscreen laptop features Windows 10 Pro for a secure, user-friendly platform.
I’m a die hard HP fan and wasn’t keen on buying the Asus ZenBook, but the screen quality seemed really impressive, so I decided to give it a try. I’ve had it for a week and it’s brilliant! The speed is impressive, start-up and shut-down is almost immediate (thanks to the SSD) and both the screen and sound quality (not to mention volume for such a little laptop) are amazing.
The battery lasts about 10/11 hours when using administrative apps and about 8 hours when using media editing software. It comes with a pouch, which is handy, as well as a stylus. The touchpad has a numeric pad function, which is handy.
ASUS has been doing some great work lately with ZenBook and VivoBook. I specifically went for ZenBook because of the amazing and colourful OLED screen. The content looks surreal and touchscreen is a big plus! The laptop is fast, thin and produces minimal fan noise.
The only downside is that it doesn’t come with fingerprint reader though face reader works like a charm. The laptop does gets hot if placed on a bed, it’s best to place the laptop on a flat surface when doing heavy lifting tasks.
For watching content during bedtime, it’s best to turn the screen 270 degrees so that vents are not covered.
Sleek and portable, Surface Laptop Go 2 features a 12. 4 vibrant touchscreen and great typing experience, now with an improved HD camera, secure Windows Hello sign-in, and a performance boost all in a premium design with a choice of rich colors, including new Sage.
Review of Microsoft Surface 4 laptop, 15 inch and Surface 4, 13. 5 inch, (16GB RAM, 512 GB SSD models). I use both the 15 inch and the 13. 5 inch models of the Surface 4, and they have a similar specification apart from the overall size, screen size, pixel count, and weight.
And the price. When connected to a UHD 4k TV by HDMI, the 15 inch produces a larger picture, occupying most of the TV screen. Surface 4: 15 inch, black matte: 2496 x 1664 pixels, weight approx. 1. 6 kg Smooth metal hand-rest around the keyboard.
Surface 4: 13. 5 inch, ice blue 2256 x 1504 pixels, weight approx. 1. 3 kg Alcantara-covered hand-rest around the keyboard, a bit more comfortable to use. Both have the 11th generation Intel Core I-7 processor, with four cores and eight logical processors.
Both have 16 GB of RAM, and a nominally 512 GB SSD, which the system reports as about 476 GB with about 420 GB free. The specifications are more than adequate for most everyday purposes, and the laptops tackle them very quickly.
The display is very sharp and clear and both have touch screens; because the trackpad is excellent I don’t find myself using the touchscreen very often. Both of these are slim and elegant laptops, with a solid feel due to aluminium cases, excellent keyboards and good sound within the limits of a laptop.
Construction and finish is of a high standard. Windows 11 runs fast, starts up quickly, and handles everyday tasks with ease. Web browsing including YouTube works perfectly. The battery life seems quite decent, around 12 hours or so of web browsing, and the battery charges quickly from the supplied charger.
I particularly value the fact that Microsoft 365, (which I use on a desktop computer as well) and therefore Microsoft One Drive, run excellently on these two laptops. The built in expansion ports are limited, as has been commented upon elsewhere, but are actually adequate for my purposes.
A dock is available if more ports are needed. The 15 inch laptop is connected to my TV, and has a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse, so I can sit some distance away and view the big display. The 13.
5 inch laptop is used as a portable browsing device, replacing an iPad.
I’ve owned multiple Surface computers, including two Pros, three Laptops, and the Surface Book. I wanted to love the Surface Pro because of its portability, but that easel configuration felt awkward and unstable, whether on a seatback tray or my thighs.
The Book is an impressive machine with its convertible design, but that’s a feature I rarely use. It was bulkier than I wanted for travel, so I repurposed it as a competent desktop replacement. If I had to choose just one Surface for maximum versatility, it would be the Laptop.
I’ve owned the first generation and Laptop 3. Laptop 4 is unquestionably the best yet. It feels fast and crisp. The AMD Ryzen 5 processor reacts swiftly to anything I throw at it–admittedly, nothing too taxing.
I simultaneously run Edge, Outlook, OneNote, some simple Excel spreadsheets, and Photoshop Elements. No gaming. The computer never feels like it’s straining to keep up. It’s more responsive than the Intel i5 in my previous Laptop 3, and the battery life is far superior.
The Ice Blue color is a refreshing change from tired shades of gray, and my palms are happy to be back on plush Alcantara after regretting the migration to cold, bare metal on the preceding generation.
My Surface Laptop 3 wasn’t yet a year old, but this Laptop 4 was a splurge I don’t regret.
This is the first Surface product I have ever owned, and I must say, I am quite impressed! The laptop itself is quite light, but feels quite premium at the same time. The trackpad is smooth and buttery, while also not making much noise when clicking.
The keys have nice travel and are also quiet. The Surface has a nice screen, and although not as bright as other comparable laptops, it’s not bad at all. The laptop has a long-lasting battery too. I can get a good 12-15 hours or so while multitasking.
This laptop can be pretty pricey for what features you get compared to other laptops on the market, but I feel you are paying extra for the premium build, durability, and portability. One major downside of the Surface Laptop is the lack of ports.
It only has one each of USB-A and USB-C. Unfortunately, it also doesn’t have Thunderbolt 4. The lack of ports means you likely would need to invest in an external hub, especially if you have multiple peripherals you want to connect.
Pros: -portable and lightweight -quite durable -nice vertical 3:2 screen ratio -the Sandstone color is really unique -long battery life between charges -fast charging with included power supply: 0% to 80% in an hour Cons: -lack of ports -can get a bit warm when multitasking.
The Lenovo Yoga 6 is an ultra-portable 2-in-1 that combines unique style with the powerful responsiveness of an AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile Processor, abundant memory and SSD storage. Enjoy a rich multimedia experience with the clarity of a 13.
3″ FHD touchscreen display, and enveloping sound with Dolby Atmos -optimized stereo speakers.
I just received this laptop two days ago and so far I love it. I was worried that the screen might seem small (coming from a 14inch 2 in1), but it is fine for general typing doing emails, etc. It connected seamlessly to my external monitor, so I feel I will have a system that works well when I need more space for data analysis/ report writing, etc, where one 13.
3 in screen is not enough space. The finger print reader is the best I have ever used. It is extremely sensitive and works however I put my finger on the fingerprint reader. Battery seemed to go down faster than expected – but that is only on the first charge, and I was downloading apps, running a workout video, and using a portable external monitor which runs on the computer battery power- so not a fair assessment.
The keyboard wasn’t as easy to use as I expected at first- just because the keys press a bit harder than I expected. After using it for a day, however, I find I already am getting used to the different feel and love it.
Size and spacing is good. As far as performance, it seems good on normal work tasks and internet browsing. Portability is fantastic- so easy to drop in my bag and go. And I love the blue denim cover- looks great and seems durable.
Time will tell. I have noticed it seems quite warm when I use it on my lap, so will continue to monitor that. Overall I am thrilled with this computer- but will update as I use it more. I got the open-box certified version and am happy to have saved money as well as get a laptop with windows 11 already installed.
I bought this laptop for myself a year after getting one for one of my staff who says it is the best laptop she has ever used, and would recommend it to others.
I got my Lenovo Yoga 6 during my second year of College. The reason why I chose this brand was because I absolutely loved my first Lenovo I owned, handed down from my grandmother (yes this laptop I was using was ancient and very big) although it was old it very fast! It was one of those items you just can’t seem to let go of, only reason why I gave it up was because it no longer supported certain programs due to its old age 🤣😢.
Sense getting my new Yoga 6 laptop I loved every bit of it, the sleek blue cover on top which several people would comment on, where did you get that!? No, I did not buy this separately, it came with the computer! Although, one problem that came up further down the road was that there was not enough storage on the computer which is a bummer for someone like me who is cost efficient due to being In my college years.
(Extra gigs means extra money per month which means a whole other topic) I did come up with another problems with hooking up wireless earbuds, one ear piece would hook up and not the other. Once I had them both hooked up everything went smoothly although now my computer mic does not work for ANY of my apps (zoom,discord,Skype) even when my wireless earbuds are unplugged, bizarre.
I especially love how you can easily flip this laptop over both ways which makes it easier for myself to trace art work off the internet. Overall, I really lovethis computer! I love the brand, I love windows and have been a windows user for a long time and if given the option to switch to an apple computer I would stay with windows due to the amount of content windows can give too you! My next purchase will be an upgrade from a Lenovo Yoga 6.
My two previous computers were Microsoft Surface with 256 gig drive – quirky and good but slow, and an inexpensive Acer Spin, which was even slower and less capable but had the flexibility of screen angles like the Yoga – and from that goofy Acer I got addicted to using a small laptop with a touch screen that was able to bend flat (which is how I like to read books now, while lying in bed – flat and straight up in the air, balanced on my hips – using the touch screen to page forward.
) The Microsoft Surface battery no longer held charge, and the Acer Spin had become unusable due to lack t of drive space, so I shopped for the 13 inch Lenovo Yoga with 1 terabyte drive, and as I expected, it has turned out to be excellent – I do not regret any part of that decision.
It is exactly perfect for my needs in a modern personal computer. Moving my data and apps into the Lenovo Yoga 6 and pairing it with blue tooth devices was easy. It has room for Adobe art making projects, for Microsoft software development projects, and for XAMPP, and it accommodates my love of reading books on screen while lying in bed for which I like to use the flat folding mode.
It is light weight enough to be comfortable using in bed or anywhere at all. Any time I try to use my wife’s MacBook Pro I get frustrated by the rigidity of screen positions, and lack of touch screen.
She was upset with my decision to buy but has come around and wants one too now. In summary am very happy to be back on a Lenovo device, a brand that I have used reliably for years while working for IBM, and I look forward to several years personal use and lasting value with this Yoga 6 device.

Dell Inspiron Convertible 2-in-1 Laptop: Handle your daily computing tasks with this 15. 6-inch UHD Dell Inspiron 2-in-1 notebook. The 16GB RAM reduces slowdowns during operation for multitasking across open tabs, while the Intel Core i7 processor provides powerful support for programs.
This Dell Inspiron notebook features a robust 1TB SSD plus 32GB Intel Optane to store files and programs while accelerating boot up times. Equipped with Intel Iris Xe MAX dedicated graphics to enhance productivity and power.
The flip-and-fold design allows for increased versatility wherever you want to get to work. This Inspiron 2-in-1 comes with a Dell Active pen to draw and write on the display with ease. There is also a built-in charging slot for the pen, so it is always charged and ready to go.
I had read through a bunch of the reviews for this machine and like many of them I experienced the BSOD on initial boot. I understand that a device, between the time that it’s imaged and the time that it’s sold which can be many months, will typically be in need of many system and Windows updates, but a specific model should never have this many buyers experiencing a crashing event when they first power on their brand new relatively expensive laptop.
Anyway, after a reboot it went through its auto diagnostics and found no issues, rebooted again, and then it successfully loaded Windows and I was able to proceed with the initial set up. I immediately got the system completely up to date with all Dell and Windows updates.
** I have not had another BSOD since that initial boot ** The performance has been good, but I have not yet really needed to run multiple high-intensive applications that would all be battling for system resources No problems with the touchpad once I got it all set/configured the way that I like it (I don’t particularly care for the zooming and scrolling and tapping features, as in my experience they cause unintentional actions for me far more than beneficial functionality).
The display is crisp and clean, and I have not had any flickering or anything that caught my eye as a concern with it. Typing has had a little bit of a learning curve as my last personal laptop did not have a separate numeric keypad, so I’ve had to shift to the left a little bit when placing my hands on the keyboard, but that comes with the territory when you’re making this sort of change has nothing to do with the quality of the hardware.
The keys are responsive and the backlighting works well (my last laptop was the first I had with a backlit keyboard and now that is a “must have” with any new purchase). One thing that I had seen in the photos before purchasing and wasn’t sure what kind of impact it would have is the way the screen sits while open—it looked like the bottom of the screen actually came down lower than the main case, and it does.
For me, it is a little bit annoying as I use the computer mostly on the couch on my lap, and it’s not the most comfortable. Every other laptop I’ve owned the screen was flush when open, so I immediately noticed this one kind of pressing down on my legs in the spot where the bottom of screen is.
The one good thing about it—and maybe why Dell designed it this way—is that when you don’t have it on your lap, opening the screen causes the bottom to rise up a bit which of course allows better airflow.
Overall, this machine has been fine for me so far, but I would not be out actively recommending it to others at its full retail price (I got it during a pretty decent sale and that’s why I’ll select yes to the recommend question).
It’s a great laptop with nice hardware and software drivers been improved since its launch. Using it for quiet some time and I must say very rough experience at the beginning because it was a new and very buggy hardware and driver software release; but much better now and been on the top of updates through dell support software “manufacturer drivers”.
If you are buying it now right away please do your self a favour and update everything via dell support application. It will update Bios, firware, drivers etc and you will have a much better experience.
People saying track pad dont work. I experienced that in the begining but much improved now and dont forget this laptop have sensors where you pick and depending on how you hold and fold it will disable the keyboard and trackpad for better screen and pen experience.
For better experience with trackpad make sure its flat on your desk or even in your lap. The more you tilt it will trigger those sensors. Also get a Bluetooth mouse a cheap one (I recommend Logitech M720 multidevice) or any cheap usb rechargeable whoes battery last for months or an year and you will save yourself a big-time headache.
The fingerprint sensor works also and again with updated drivers much better. In the device manager disable Bluetooth devices “Human Interface Device” goes to sleep automatically to save power. Same for Fingerprint Goodix under “Biometric Devices”.
you will save your self ton of headache. on the lock screen if the fingerprint is not getting detected, then switch back and forth between passcode (don’t enter pass code) and back to fingerprint again and it will trigger it and log you in.
For me after updates it logs me in every single time. Also disable automatic reboot upon error. I experienced quite a few BSOD’s in the beginning but its improved a lot over time and thanks to dell for constantly pushing updates.
I think this can still be improved by manufacturers via extensive testing inter-department before release and then launch a solid product. If you are going to format this laptop make sure to load Intel optane H10 drivers on a bootable USB which you might use to restore your image.
Just make a driver folder and point windows towards it when installing windows; otherwise you will not have Intel optane functionality and you will lose 30gbs or Ram style memory which is used for faster program load etc all good bells and whistles.
Highly recommended to do it I am not going to lie that everything was a shining star with the laptop but I did some workarounds and am now back to normal settings. At one point I was going to return it because of the time spent troubleshooting and laptop sudden BSOD in the middle of the work; LOL it made me realize to always save your work.
Its a wonderful nice stylish and professional-looking laptop with nice hardware and functions. Used pen multiple times for professional paperwork and saved me from printing papers on multiple occasions.
The pen is smooth and nice on its glass touch screen. Again pen glides smooth on glass screen a lot of people dont understand this, its just so that glass is hard and people with different writing style press sometime hard on screen and this is 4k screen with glass and you will have nice experience writing over it.
To be honest I dont use it all the time but its there to add convenience and very helpful. This laptop in a folded position is a giant tablet and all touch system works like tablet. e. g youtube double tap to fast forward etc.
The headphone jack when you plug in your iphone of any other headphones and you get a popup on the screen, always select “Head Set” and subcategory and earbuds or earphones etc because with the headset the system understands that a headset is Microphone and Headphones together.
Again some people dont get this. Last but not the least if you havnt got anything from this review just understand this much. Update your laptop with Dell Support Software with manufacturer drivers. Dont be downloading every single driver from every hardware manufacturer’s website especially the Graphics driver (Intel Iris Xe and Xe Max) which this laptop offers.
Fan spinning, fingerprint etc will all be fixed and apply some of the settings that I listed above and you will be fine. I hope this was helpful and avoid my typing mistakes just typing this on the fly.
It is an excellent laptop for the price when I purchased as a openbox at BestBuy almost at over 55% discount of listed price. Windows 11 comes straight out of the box. This model has QHD display which is far superior to Full HD.
The build is Aluminum metal and solid and the laptop is one of the unique products which can have a 360 degree rotation and can be used as a large tablet. It is heavy to be used as laptop in couch but tolerable.
In addition to 16 GB Ram it has another Additional 32 GB optane memory. As per intel “Intel Optane memory also comes in a 32GB capacity. This size is ideal for accelerating game launch, running data-intensive applications, and creating or transferring large media files.
Other performance benefits include: Animation work. Audio, video, and graphics editing. ” So though Ram is listed at 16 GB Optane memory of 32 GB is good to launch programs and webpages at lightning speed.
The display is bright and classy though battery at continuous Video loop run can last around 5 hrs at 50% brightness. Battery can last over 10 hrs on off and on light use like browsing ,word document, youtube watching and routing work.
Based on specs and entry level graphics card It is capable of running games decently at medium resolution but haven’t tested it. The audio speaker volume is low for a computer of this size but audio volume can become really loud by by using programs like Equalizer APO with some caveats.
The ports allocation is decent but an ethernet port would have been great. Keyboard is good to type with enough space for wrists and part of hand on Laptop. Touchscreen is great and similar to high quality phone screens.
All in all Bestbuy openboxes offer great quality products at intense value though it is not available in shipping or in many locations.
Stay ahead of looming deadlines with this platinum Microsoft Surface 2 laptop. The 13. 5-inch PixelSense touchscreen provides detailed visuals, and the 128GB SSD ensures fast boot-ups and load times.
This Microsoft Surface 2 laptop features an Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM for responsive computing, while the battery offers up to 14. 5 hours of video playback for working and playing on the go.
13. 5″ PixelSense touchscreen provides crystal-clear images. Powered by an 8th Gen Intel Core i5 processor for high-speed responses. 8GB of RAM delivers seamless multitasking. 128GB SSD offers ample storage space.
802. 11ac Wi-Fi connects to wireless networks. Battery life will vary depending on the product configuration, product model, applications loaded on the product, power management setting of the product, and the product features used by the customer.
As with all batteries, the maximum capacity of this battery will decrease with time and usage.
After looking for a replacement for my MacBook, I decided that the Surface would be the best bet. But after taking it home and getting it all set up, the entire Windows experience is pretty much exactly the same as it used to be 10 years ago.
Clunky and unrefined. Fan was pretty much constantly running and laptop was hot to the touch even just watching Netflix or Youtube. THEN there’s the keyboard. It feels fine, but the ENTIRE body flexes when you just rest your finger on a key.
I just couldn’t look past it. There’s no reason to pay this much money and get the build quality of a $60 tablet. I will say the battery life was pretty good and the screen looked nice. Touch input was basically pointless.
People think that they have to have a computer with professional specs. But the average person would never use all that power for as long as they own the device. But I get it, most people want to future proof their investment.
But the way I see it, no matter how much you spend. You’re going to upgrade within 4 to 5 year’s anyway so why not think about what you’re going to be doing with it in the first place. Most apps are optimized for low powered devices anyway so you’ll never need a high end device to start with.
But hey, I can’t tell you how to spend your money. But for me, I only keep a device for about two years anyway because I love new technology. But for the average person this is a great product.
The product is light and extremely to carry. Although the screen quality maybe inferior compared with other laptops, it is hard to find another laptop at this price point (after discount) with touch screen, fingerprint sensor, good build quality and good performance.
The laptop comes with Intel i5-1035G1, product released in two years. But it performs just great for daily work. Of course, if you require heavy workload relying on graphics, the premium model like Surface Laptop 4 or MacBook with M1 chip will be your choices.

9430 with i7-1265U, 32GB RAM. First the carbon fiber chassis is slim, light and elegant. It looks very much like my 7420; it is a little slimmer and a darker carbon color. When opening the laptop, I can see that keyboard is identical to the 7420, which is a failure and the reason the laptop lost a star.
The keys have a higher profile than I like and don’t fit into the board tightly enough to prevent a fingernail or cat claw from catching on an edge and popping the key off. Now I am afraid to leave the laptop open because the 7420 (the 9430’s predecessor) needed its keyboard replaced twice before I attached it to a dock permanently.
The audio is a big improvement in that the speakers are built into the chassis right on either side of the keyboard. Listening to a movie or music is pleasurable and plenty loud enough even with the lid shut there seemed to be no difference in the available sound.
The video is the crowning glory of this laptop. It starts with a beautiful high resolution infinity edge screen. I attempted docking with the WD19DCS. The dual USB-C cables plugged in neatly without the “wiggle” room of the Precision 5560.
However the 9430 did not recognize the dock no matter what I tried. Then I tried the WD19S dock and plugged in my (3) 27″ high resolution monitors which worked like a charm. Obviously, the i7-1265U processor plays a large role.
It is fast and responsive as expected. I would recommend this laptop for any user, especially power users like me. This laptop travels well with built in video conferencing features. The infinity edge provides more viewing space.
The laptop is lighter than most 13″ models; which means it won’t hurt my wrist. The 360 degree hinge lets you hold the laptop like a tablet. I also noticed that this laptop runs cooler than my Precision 5560.
If the keyboard had a better design like the XPS or the Precision it would be perfect and well worth the cost over the 7xxx series.
I had a Surface Pro for years (Surface Pro 3 and Surface Pro 2017) and decided it’s time to move on to something with a bigger screen. I loved the Surface line, so I was skeptical moving on, honestly.
Well, Dell has hit a home run with the 9430! The screen size is just right for me, and I love that I can use the device as a laptop or a tablet, and I can write on the screen with the Dell pen! It has great battery life so far and I have no complaints about the device in the few weeks that I have had it.
I also like that I was able to configure it with 32GB of RAM and enough storage for my needs. It has not blinked at anything I have thrown at it yet.
Although I have watched many review videos before my purchasing, it is still surprising me with developed smart features, compared to my previous Dell Inspiron. Not as light as I expected, yet it brings a feeling of secured with minimalist and timeless style.
Camera quality is of utmost important and I can see myself clearly and vividly on the screen. The face recognition feature is amazing, I tried to show my face in different angles but it still recognises me and unlocks in few ticks.
Additionally, I can also cover and uncover the webcam depending on my needs. The keyboard is comfortable to type (its design is not sharp, with four corners of each key rounded), touchpad does not require much effort to press.
One more important bonus thing is that the laptop still has USB-A port. This is important to me as I use lots of USBs (traditional ones) for work and study.
Incredibly powerful, infinitely flexible. Stay productive, consistent, and secure. A transformative way to work Work the way you want whether compiling code on a powerful business laptop, multitasking while docked on a perfectly angled stage, or sketching ideas on a full-horsepower creative studio.
Built for performance Run circles around renders, tackle complex data, and sketch stunning 3D visualizations. Create brilliantly, connect clearly Take notes, sketch during brainstorms, and draw like you would pen on paper on the sharp touchscreen.
Look and sound great on every Microsoft Teams call so you can collaborate effortlessly and be extraordinary. A display you can see and feel Enjoy uniform, true-to-life color and contrast on the beautiful, factory-calibrated PixelSense Flow touchscreen.
Digital pen experience Take notes and sketch with greater precision with Surface Slim Pen 2 on the display. The haptic motor in Surface Slim Pen 2 brings the feeling of writing and drawing on paper to the screen.
Look and sound great on every video call Look more like yourself on camera with the 1080p HD video that improves skin tone accuracy. Your voice comes in clear with dual Studio Mics. Performance and versatility help get the job done Seamlessly multitask, work in whichever mode you want, and handle heavy workflows with high-speed processors, blazing enterprise-grade graphics, and pro-level storage.
Dell Inspiron Convertible 2-in-1 Laptop Finish everyday tasks quickly with this Dell Inspiron notebook. The Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB RAM run several applications consecutively, while the 512GB SSD and the 32GB Intel Optane Memory provides plenty of storage room while accelerating boot up time.
This Dell Inspiration notebook boasts integrated Intel Iris graphics for clear viewing on the 13. 3-inch touchscreen display.
A lot of fun! I’m coming from Inspirion 15 that I bought in 2015. I was looking for a 2-in-1 to meet my business needs for mobility and meetings for customers, and this does that! Problems: C-port doesn’t work.
Mine was an open-box that didn’t come with a power cord. I was told it came with everything, got home, nothing. Went back, they pretended it was normal instead of making it right. I let it go, in pursuit of further testing.
The C-port is obviously broken, and then I realized my old power cord did in fact fit the actual power socket. It’s a hit or miss though, I have to fiddle with it to get it to charge. Battery: Decent if you’re not doing anything too heavy.
If you’re watching a movie, it might last 3 hours. When I first started using this, I was really impressed with the battery!! Now, it doesn’t seem to last as long. I haven’t even had it a week. Windows 11: Coming from Windows 10, I actually had no idea this had 11.
I hate both windows and apple as companies, but am used to Windows. There is a fix for the dumb microsoft account that is mandatory to create: you must create one in order to login to the computer, they do not give you an option.
BUT, upon dabbling in the settings, you can choose to switch to a “local account. ” Which lets you create a normal login, not attached to a windows account. Settings: A little tricky and annoying, as in long lists of scrolling, if you are searching for an option (they don’t make it incredibly easy to find via search, most of the time for what I have found), and select one of them to go into and look, once you go “back”, it returns you to the top of the list, again.
This is quite cumbersome to say the least, when you have to scroll scroll scroll, click every single time, just to go back where you were, instead of holding your place. Additionally, if they exist, certain settings are hard to find: when to lock the computer and require a login, other consumer control vs.
microsoft doing whatever they please, like auto-downloading/permissions/updating without consent. Touchscreen: I LOVE being able to just click and select things with my hand!! So easy. I’m holding my breath that the hinges hold out – even the display model at the store was broken.
I’m just going to be very very careful and hope this lasts, because I only got it for $532, and by reviews, neither Best Buy or Dell is going to be helpful at all, if anything goes wrong. Praying if it will break, it will be within my holiday return window.
All in all, I definitely like how it is enough to keep it at my pricepoint, but may have to return it if something further goes wrong. Fix all your settings that you care about, and as always, choose wisely with your purchases!!.
I have only had this laptop since January. It is now October, and during a volunteer meeting my entire screen went pixelated. Lines all across the screen. Restarted. Tried to find updates for drivers, everything.
My background went black when trying to move to external monitor. just issue after issue, and it kept getting worse. Chatted online with Best Buy, and after communicating, they said it had to be an actual screen issue and to make an appt.
Made appt, took it in. And even though my parents thought it had the extended protection, apparently the guy never rang it up. The associate at geek squad was helpful, but there was nothing he could do and said things like this are spontaneous and a flaw.
apparently my screen is basically dying. Mind you, we got this laptop because my one I had purchased just three years ago decided to die as well within battery, and the motherboard and speakers (can’t even connect external speakers); it would be just as much to fix as get a new laptop.
so now that has become our laptop to just use for things without sound. So, his suggestion was to reach out to Dell directly, since it’s still in it’s one year warranty. Did that when we got home and the agent was helpful.
Did all diagnostic running, and also agreed it’s the lcd screen itself. He scheduled a tech to come out once they get the part. Frustrating. But whatever. WELL, I got an email today that they are backlogged (understandable, but I know the Dell agent had to know this when being ‘so’ helpful).
So now I’m stuck without being able to do what I need to do on my laptop and I have to figure out how to afford a new one while I wait who knows how long for this one to become a useful laptop potentially again and not a paperweight.
I will never buy a Dell product again. It’s been nothing but frustration. Do yourself a favor and be aware of this, because according to Best Buy. it’s an issue with Dell laptops.
My husband and I purchased this Dell Inspirion 13 7000 Series 2 in 1 laptop for our business a few years ago and it has met our expectations over this time. I really appreciate the touch screen capabilities and the ability to fold the laptop so you can use it as a tablet, although I don’t personally use this feature often.
I am able to create documents, browse the internet, send/receive emails, stream video/music, etc flawlessly. I don’t typically experience any stuttering or freezing while using this laptop, and I am happy with the overall performance.
I haven’t tried gaming, so I am unsure how it would handle that, but for our business and personal use, this Dell Inspiron 13. 3″ Touch Convertible Laptop was an excellent purchase. Device specs: Intel Core i5-7200 CPU @2.

Look your best on video calls with HP GlamCam, an intelligent 5MP camera with Backlight Adjustment and Auto Frame. With screen time and distance reminders, you know when it’s time to take a screen break or if you’re too close.
I’m not the kind of person who can get along well with a device that only does one thing well. Thankfully, this device does lots of things, really well – truly the overachiever of computers. First of all, it feels overall well-made.
The keyboard is comfortable, and to use it in tablet mode, the screen rotates smoothly and securely. The screen feels satisfying and sturdy to tap and swipe on, and I can even use it with my rubber-tip stylus.
Also, the screen is quite large and very high-definition, so it’s amazing to watch movies, play games, or even read on. And, it does all those things very quickly and without lag thanks to the great Ryzen processor.
But it’s also great that this device isn’t just awesome for entertainment and playtime; it’s great for getting work done too, which is a must for me since I work from home. There’s a good amount of USB connections, both USB-C and standard USB so you don’t have to use hubs and adapters so much.
The webcam is really impressive quality – no more fiddling with the lighting in my room or playing with settings just to make myself somewhat presentable for a video meeting. The sound of the built-in speakers is genuinely awesome, too – it goes pretty loud and has amazing overall sound quality, which I’m not used to experiencing on any laptop or tablet I ever previously owned.
I love being able to blast my tunes or feel immersed in a video game without having to connect external speakers. On top of it all, the battery life is fantastic. Even if I’m doing something more intensive like gaming, it lasts for many hours straight.
I didn’t expect one device to be able to do so many things so well, but like I said, it’s definitely an overachiever. Whether you want to work hard or play hard (or, like myself, do a lot of both every day), this 2-in-1 has it all covered for sure.
