    Very good prices.
    I believe that is a lot of hardware at that price point.

      At first I thought "Ugh, just another cheap N4200 laptop" but it actually looks to be pretty nice.
      Ships with Linux, nice design, 1080p monitor, 8gb ram, 240gb SSD and USB-C charging but also USB type A ports for normal USB peripherals.
      Only thing I'm wondering about is the battery life.

      If I would be in need of a new laptop I would be very interested in this, but unfortunately I don't need a new laptop.

        *IPS monitor. Very very important thing.
        Also backlit keyboard.

        Probably 5-6 hours, it is more or less similar to this one https://www.notebookcheck.net/Acer-A....190369.0.html

          Non-ips screens on laptops are horrible so that's good, backlit keyboard is a nice bonus!

          But that laptop is 15" rather than 11" though. Also, what's the size of the battery?
