Came across this deal when looking for a laptop for my son for school.
To get the price
- customize laptop and remove Windows 10
- Popup will appear offering a 10% discount for new users
$899.00 - $259.00 (OS) - $64 (10%) = $576
- AMD Ryzen™ 3 5300U
- 4GB DDR4
- 256GB SSD M.2
The amount of RAM isn't ideal, but it does come with a spare SO-DIMM slot so can be upgraded. Unfortunately with the 5300U there isn't an option to upgrade the soldered RAM to 8GB. To access the 8GB option you need to upgrade the CPU to the 5500U.
Don't forget to upgrade the Wi-fi to 11.ax, its a free upgrade from 11.ac
Obviously you'll need to source an operating system, I'll leave that up to your imagination.
My order has just shipped and cost $643 with an extra 4gb of RAM and the IPS screen upgrade.
