It looks like you can bring it back to Canada Computers store first 90 days for warranty work. After that u ship it back to manufacturer for warranty work. Does anyone know where we would ship it to? Would it be an address in China?

This even has IPS display.
The only shortcoming is the 32GB SSD. I've had an ASUS Transformer with 32GB SSD before... Never again! Windows and it's various update files and temp files take up 28GB unless you run disk cleanup monthly.

I find the worst problem of these no name brand notebook is their keyboard. They flex a lot. Not to mention their less than par build quality...

If this was a licensed Chromebook I would probably buy it for $150 or so, but Windows 10 will absolutely kill its performance and battery life. And reinstalling a free version of Google Chrome isn't the same thing =- been there, done that.

the N3450 apollo lake is fine for light tasks and media consumption; i have 3 apollo lake mini pcs running win10 at home connected to my TVs for playing stuff. they work fine with N3450 and 4GB ram.

the dealbreaker here is the 32GB storage.

Obviously, and I was taking the entire system into account - if it came with a 480GB SSD it would be a totally different story. That's why I would like it better with Chrome, as that works with 16GB let alone 32GB.

But no matter what system config, Win 10 is a battery hog next to Chrome and that's indisputable.

I'm using the even lower spec N3350 14" version. These are basically Canada Computers' rebranded Jumper Ezbook. There's m.2 (no nvme, Sara mode only). A cheapo SSD makes this usable for web browsing and light office work. I use it to watch live streaming. Speakers and webcam suck, but it's expected.

I'm still trying to get Chromium OS to work. Cloudready mostly function but touchpad doesn't work. Ubuntu is working fine even with touchpad.

BTW if you are from one of the provinces where CC isn't registered in (Manitoba, for example), you only pay 5% tax. So it is cheaper to have it shipped to you than picking it up in store, because you actually have to pay full 13% tax if you do that (as they are obviously registered in Ontario).

I find that quite interesting.

I pulled the trigger because it is basically $190 before tax (190*1.13=$215), which I consider a reasonable amount to pay to experience new things.

Will report back with a detailed review once I receive it!
Subtotal: $199.00
Shipping: $4.99
EHF: $0.80
Tax: $10.24
