I bought the laptop to do computer programming, using Oracle VM Virtual Box and a couple of IDEs that were notoriously slow on my old machine that has nearly identical specs, only with 7th gen core i7 and no SSD drive. This laptop surprisingly is not much faster compared to it. Worse, on my very first time launching a video from the web browser (Chrome), this laptop froze about half an hour in and I had to manually rebooted it. Right after rebooting, Windows rebooted itself for some reasons (presumably for a Windows update, but I didn't see any confirmation afterward). Since then I have experienced glitches here and there, sometimes the keyboard suddenly beeped when typing for no good reason, only requiring me to do a hard reboot. Sometimes while launching many applications at once the mouse movement and keyboard commands appeared to be laggy. As for the unboxing itself, I was a little surprise to see the laptop did not appear to be fresh and untouched out of the factory. The cables came in bags although were sealed but appeared to be old. The laptop didn't have finger prints on them but did not come wrapped in any special packaging, unlike when you open an iPad box or a Samsung phone box. Granted this laptop was "built" (manually, I think) so it appeared to have been "used". I just hope that I didn't get a refurbished one, or one that was hastily put together.
