Love it! First chromebook. Touch screen is accurate and number pad comes in handy. Love the aluminum body (doesn't feel cheap) Only downfall is the speakers are on the bottom, so if it's on your lap the sound is muffled. When on a table though, the sound reverberates and is very loud.

I this time of need (online schooling due to COVID-19) I purchased this product. I know a good bit about computers but needed multiple devices for 3 children being in different grades. By far this is the go to. Fast processor, seamless integration with their schooling, and family fun. I purchased one and then went to get another because they were so good and now they are sold out. Still a great purchase and great product.
Over all its great for school work and light gamin
Pros: long battery, easy to use, is well made and has a nice feel to it, touch screen control is very responsive, keyboard numerical pad helps crunching in numbers faster. Bluetooth connectivity is great no problems controlling screen with mouse or android controller, can be unlocked when u connect ur phone on it through bluetooth. Cons: even though the screen is HD it isn't to clean but it isn't bad. Not compatable to play some Mobile games exp(minecraft). Its for light gaming and in beta Linux can have the steam app and play games on a VM.
Overall a good buy
Very easy to use and does everything I want, except it doesn't directly connect to my printer. Still have to figure out how to do that. Online it says it can be done, but it takes some extra steps. I wish it would automatically connect. Otherwise it's been great and does everything I want. We have streamed movies, books, and the kids use it to do school on. Other than not being able to print (yet) it's satisfactory.
Actually please consider this 4 1/2 stars
For perspective, I'm coming from a Toshiba Chromebook 2. The all aluminum case makes it feel very solid, and stays cool to the touch. Large screen is a step up to the 13 inches I'm used to and the brightness levels are fine for me (all indoor use). Track pad feels great, very responsive and has a nice silver trim around it. Keys feel fine, very much like my old Toshiba. They are not back lit, but I dont care. Battery has been lasting all day and the adapter plugs in on either side, which is very nice. Touchscreen is responsive and works well. Internet pages load quickly as well as Youtube/Netflix. My only complaint is the audio; it has downward facing speakers which can make it sound muffled when sitting on your lap. If its on a hard surface, its not bad. Top level loudness was probably a 7 compared to my Toshiba. Could be bc of the down speakers. But thats plenty fine for a person in an average household or office. Headphones will fix that and there are also Chrome extensions that will boost your volume even further if you want (careful you dont go too far, you can damage them). Overall, for $330, I'm happy with it.
Made the mistake of thinking this was the 715 that other retailers had for $550+. Thought I got a great deal for $299 around black Friday. Came to find this is a Walmart only version of the 715. Lacks the back lit keyboard that I thought came with it based on research of the model. This was a significant feature that I wanted only to be disappointed when I opened it. My mistake for not looking closer at it before I bought it. Still am not happy with the lack of transparency from Walmart. It was described as the same model I saw on Best Buy and several other places for the higher price. Overall not a bad laptop but I had a 7 year old Chromebook when I bought this one that still ran great at about 80% of it's original battery life. I chose this model over several other options based on the back lit keyboard. Clean up your details Walmart.
