What is the display TN or IPS? Three options listed on specs list ?
These are all TN.
Heat from me, best priced laptop I've seen with Intel 10th processor and the G7 level graphics. For reference, most benchmarks have the Intel G7 graphics about 30% better than Vega 8 graphics in the Ryzen 3500u chipsets in the most popular recent laptop deals

Hi Tomasz, I'm pretty sure it would be more than enough to produce music. Make sure you switch from Windows Home S into Home straight after unboxing Otherwise you won't be able to install third party software (like Ableton). Good luck with creating music!

It's your best chance for the price, this is the most powerful laptop under £550 posted on here
I know this has an integrated GPU, but was hoping it would be good enough to run Photoshop for some simple lighting tweaks? Only ever bought gaming laptops in the past, but don't really want the bulk/pricetag.

Also is there an option for adding more RAM?

Thank you


he's correct as long as you don't want hundreds of instances of say, serum and if you're using sample libraries you'll want to get an external ssd to store them on as that space runs out fast.

you may find ram to be a limitation in those more intense workloads but freezing tracks (temporary processing down to audio) will make it easier to deal with. For purely electronic music this point isn't so important however.

photoshop will run fine, for smaller projects it won't even need to spend time caching anything around 300-600 dpi at large formats will be slower though.
Anybody know if this model has a backlit keyboard? Their website says it's "optional" but not quite sure whet that means in this case. Thanks.
Sold out!
Recently bought the Asus Zenbook; apart from 8gb of ram does it have anything to justify the extra cost or should I return it and get something considerably cheaper like this?
TN display. reviews are pretty crap and lLenovo is a terrible company to deal with . Avoid
