Rated 5 out of 5 by JT Sunnyvale from Outstanding Value This is like a macbook air but way better price. Love the way it ways around 2 pounds, making it very portable--which is the main reason I would want a laptop. Excellent screen and backlit keyboard. I love the font on the keys, headphone port, and hdmi 2.1 port. Design is modern and clean. Webcam is not the best, but it is sufficient, as are the speakers and microphone. I LOVE that this can charge with USB-C. Wish it came with a USB-C charger instead of the barrel plug, but it isn't expensive to get a USB-C cable and charger. I got the lowest spec options across the board on mine, and I still get excellent performance for basic usage, and can even do some light gaming. The only things I wish for on this laptop would be a SD card slot, and expandable memory slot. Make sure to select more RAM when you buy this if your usage is memory hungry, because you can't upgrade it later. The RAM is soldered in. Conclusion: For the price, this is an excellent value for most users. Only people with demanding use cases would need more than this (hardcore gaming, graphics rendering, photo/video editing, etc.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by RichHP4 from Very lightweight, solid unit, great value Very good laptop, great for the price. It's extremely light weight. Performance is peppy, I haven't pushed it hard, but runs standard tasks like web browsing, watching videos, and office products quickly. Build quality feels reliable, better than expected for the price. And I like that the usb-c port has power delivery so you can connect it to a docking station with PD and have one cable to the laptop which provides external video, audio, and charges the laptop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by J4PU from Noisy speakers Speakers are underneath body. low volume and not the cleanest floor for noise. Without any signal playing through the audio sink device I can hear static coming from the speakers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AV_1 from Incredibly light, powerful and affordable Incredibly small and light, beautiful design, good performance and battery life, fantastic keyboard. Cons: limited wattage could be more flexible in the expense of more heat, QHD screen has slow response time and is quite ghosty while watching videos and playing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by j2222 from Good Value but two very annoying problems Generally I have found this a great value and there is lots to like about it - performance, display, keyboard, trackpad. But I have two issues that are so annoying they take my rating from a five to a three (and I have seen the same reports on the web from others so it is not unique to my machine). First, the wifi is awful (I have the standard Realtek chip). It takes forever to connect and the bandwidth is terrible (compared side by side to my old laptop on the same wifi). Second, several times a day the screen will go black for a second and then return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shaheen NP from App disconnection It is light weight and quick . The only major issue l have is it disconnects the website or app if it is not in use for half an hour or so . I am an NP and see patients via Doxy.me. If there is a break in between patients it shows it is active but patients who are connected do not appear on my screen, so l have to log off and log back in to see the patient . Like wise if I use otter.ai for notes, if it has been idle at loses its audio

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sandeep06 from Not satisfied at all , poor performance The performance is bad. Doesn't utilise the ram efficiently. Browser is the only thing I use yet feels slower than my 3 year old laptop with 8 gb ram. The audio and mic quality is really bad. I took an interview with this piece of crap and was a total mess.

I just got this laptop. I started using it immediately and I feel like the screen has such bad quality. It&rsquo;s so blurry. I have a computer from 2016 that has better resolution. Any one else experienced this?

Asked by: asnis
Try adjusting the display &quot;Resolution&quot;. Native resolution of HP Aero 13.3&quot; is 1920 x 1200, so if it is set to anything else (say 1920 x 1080) it will appear blurry. If the text is too small after fixing the resolution, search Windows 11 for &quot;Make text size bigger&quot;.
