Configuration includes Intel Core i5-4210U dual-core processor (4 threads) together with 8GB of RAM and offers good performance, especially since the separate AMD Radeon R5 M230 graphics with 2GB of dedicated memory is available. Although this is an entry-level model, offers good performance for the average user who will not use the laptop only for playing the latest games. This model is a good chance to get a decent mid-range laptop for business or multimedia, but you should count on additional cost when it comes to the operating system.
Positive: Excellent performance for price range; good graphics card; good price.
