Honest Laptop Pros and Cons

- The biggest pro of this laptop is by far its versatility and powerful Ryzen processor. Upgrades are cheaper than replacing!

- The biggest drawback with this specific laptop is that the standard version comes out with only 4GB of RAM. This really bottlenecks the 8-thread processor when it comes to multitasking.

We highly recommend getting at least 8GB of RAM for a much better experience. To see what this baby can do, also add a small SSD as the primary drive for much faster loading and boot-up times!
