Allen Ngo,

With Black Friday just around the corner, major retailers are already offering deals to get a head start. One notable deal is the ultra-thin 14-inch Walmart Motile laptop M142 for just $380 USD down from the original $700 asking price. Newegg has the exact same laptop for just $535 as well.

While laptops under $500 are common, they would typically be very slow with outdated processors, low resolution displays, and thick or ugly chassis designs. The Walmart Motile model in question comes equipped with AMD's latest Zen+ CPU that rivals the Intel Core i7-8565U as found on most flagship Ultrabooks and with a surprisingly well-calibrated matte 1080p display. In other words, you're getting a similar level of system performance for less than half the price of a fancy Core i7 XPS 13, HP Spectre 13, or Asus ZenBook S13.

The big catch here is chassis rigidity. The display in particular is susceptible to flexing and the hinges are weak and they tend to teeter. We wouldn't be surprised to see flimsy or broken hinges after a year or two of constant use.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s.
