That was a bit harsh Rune_Security; I think James was referring to the fact that the fan speed could not be altered in the BIOS.

It's a good price for this model.

Not sure between this or Huawei matebook D 14", missed it on prime day for good price.

Both are good. If you will do more gaming or graphics oriented work, then Matebook D will be better.

twas a decent prime day deal. available elsewhere??
Have an earlier version of this and can confirm that it is a good machine for my purposes (office, web, mail, photo editing).
very good battery life
Lovely screen, noisy fan with no BIOS settings.
I know this is refurbished but thought it worth mentioning: I got my daughter the Ryzen 5 version of this from laptopsdirect.co.uk/ref…asp

Pro's/Con'sof the Ryzen v Intel.
+Will play some basic 3D games
+£100 Cheaper!
- Battery life much poorer than the Intel

Decent laptop/ultra book.
Battery life is good.
Charger is light weight
Laptop is light weight
Boots up fast
Finger print scanner can be temperamental
Back lit keyboard
Does not come with much bloatware.
Function buttons are bit stupid! It does not press the desired function, instead does the other option. So if you press F2, it will disconnect the wi-fi LOL, instead of renaming a file.

If that's the case I highly recommend NoteBook FanControl. Found it invaluable for my Zenbook which arrived with an aggressive fan profile around 30° - utterly infuriating!

Definitely what I meant - my bad on the poor phrasing.
I bought this model 1 year ago for £520 from Argos so it's got to be cold from me I'm afraid...

Rune you have cheered me up this morning.
I have had this for over a year and very happy with it. The navigation key layout is my only negative. Its now even better with the 2019 Windows 10 update.
Anyone who has this - How bulky is it? Is it as sleek as an ultrabook?
Looks good. Is it worth holding out for Ryzen 3000 laptops?

Damn this "HDMI" garbage. Why can't they specify what version?
