Rated 5 out of 5 by Hell2Pay from Excellent HW and a Linux (Ubuntu) Champ Short and simple, essential features are excellent and matched my budget (CPU I7, Display FHD ~400nits, Memory 16GB Dual Channel, Storage 256GB SSD, WIFI6 AX, Bluetooth, USB3/Lightning, SD Reader, Backlit KB, Touchpad, Good Power/Cooling control). It came with Windows 11 Home (not thrilled, expected 10, instead got more UI changes and features I din't want). However, I'm an Ubuntu user as well. Ubuntu 21.10 Desktop install was not only easy to accommodate, but almost no hardware issues came up and those that did only concerned configuration tweaks or non-essentials (some function keys). Even better the networking and printing configurations completed perfectly on their own. For instance, my printer/scanner is an HP Envy 6400 Pro running on WIFI. Drivers and installation were perfect as part of the Ubuntu install. I'm dual booting using GRUB for now as there is a problem installing rEFInd (my preferred boot mgr) under Secure Boot. I'm hoping that will change as soon as the new SBat requirements for shim and mokmanager are understood and a new rEFInd version is available. That will make more Linux distros available to me as well. I may need a new larger ssd. ;-))

Rated 5 out of 5 by MagpieCat from Blazing fast! I bought this laptop because my old could no longer keep up with the amount of work I have active on it at any given time: databases, spreadsheets, Word documents, multiple browser tabs, etc., all at once. This little machine goes from off to "ready to roll" in about two seconds, and then handles everything I ask it to do, with power to spare. I especially like the fingerprint sensor, which makes login easy and fast. I expect that this laptop will serve me well for a long time. The only thing I don't like about it is that the up and down arrow keys are very small, so it's hard to hit just one of them. But that's a really minor complaint on a really good machine. I'll adapt.
