Best buy in 2018. Not most expensive, but with real 4 core it can work very hard, only if you want! I can work as a developer (from AC, in office) or as a journalist. Away from power in the nature. [Oct '18 pezsitmail]

OK for desktop work, light gaming. But not cost effective. The iGPU is a MASSIVE bottleneck for gaming. [Aug '18 KoolKazooKid]
