[Amazon Canada] Amazon Prime Day - ASUS Vivobook 14 R3-3200U/4GB/128SSD/1366x768 - $380 ($120 off)

Found this thought I would share, the R3-3200U is respectable, almost like an i3, downside is the 1366x768 resolution and Windows 10 S. Considering it, only thing bothering me is the resolution and R3 power consumption. I can easily get full Windows keys on eBay for $5.

Setting the Ram alottment aside, this is a pretty good deal.

Don't forget Windows 10 S for those who don't know how to make the switch to full Windows with paying.

I'm going against the grain, the screen resolution is bearable at this price. The make or break is the Ram, depending on user.

I know Asus has been having bad QC issues lately and they probably don't give a shit, but it's like they didn't even try with this one.

And on a 14" screen. Acceptable.

Definitely respectable specs if budget is absolutely strict. Hell, I have used worse computers than this that cost a lot more back in the day.

I do believe there are 2 RAM slots, hoping it should be easy to add another 4GB. Considering buying this as a gift.

If the RAM and SSD are not soldered, we have a winner here.

3200u Passmark = 5000

Respectable for a ultrabook.

Pictures reveal it isn't ultra-slim, just slim. This goes back into purgatory, still an attractive buy for some.

According to the Q&A of the product:
Q: Is Ram upgradable or is it soldered to the motherboard??
A: Yes, the ram, hard drives, and battery all looked swappable when i opened it up.

Only problem is I don't know if that answer applies to this specific AMD laptop.

Guys who bought this particular model on amazon, I have 2 questions:
1- Does it have a backlit keyboard?
2- Does it come with a fingerprint scanner?

Thanks
