Purchased this as an upgrade to my Acer Celeron N3160 powered Chromebook. While it worked fine, it was just a bit laggy on more complicated sites. This machine is in a whole other league, in fact the Ryzen 3 benchmarks comparably to the i5 5257U in my MacBook Pro 13 (Early 2015) Yes that computer is older, but it was also $1500! The 4GB RAM standard was fine for casual use but more than 2-3 tabs open it would start to chug, I installed a Crucial 16GB DD4 PC-2400 SODIMM giving me a total of 20GB. Now It flies, I've not yet had it slow down on me. Other than that, I think the speakers actually sound pretty good, maybe others had something loose inside, no distortion even at full volume, just need to use it on a hard surface since the speakers are down firing. Keyboard feels great, and it lights up! I actually wasn't expecting that. Trackpad is decent too, better than the one on my Acer. The machine runs cool and quiet, even when the fan is on its not very loud. The only negative I can come up with, and its a big one is the display. Its plenty bright, the resolution is crisp (1080p) but the contrast and black levels leave a lot to be desired. This is par for the course for a TN panel, but pretty awful compared to the IPS panel in my Chromebook, and not comparable to the Retina Display on my MacBook Pro. Given the cost of this system however, I can live with it. All told, for a basic machine used primarily for productivity, browsing, YouTube, and simple gaming, I couldn't really ask for more! Great job ASUS!!
