Good to know! Was it difficult to crack open the case and slot in the 16GB module?

Just wondering... Why in hell do you want 16GB of ram on this kind of laptop?

Totally agree with you. No idea why people want to upgrade something like this. I thought the entire point of this laptop is a cheap but decent (OK CPU and SSD) solution for internet browsing, with no trouble to upgrade and further investment. Wasting time and money on a cheap but capable laptop like this just doesn't make sense to me.

Tried it out before giving it to the wife.
Not a rocketship, but works good for what is it.
Immediately removed McAfee crap and installed Bitdefender with Malwarebytes and added Chrome.
Good little laptop for 375+tax. No complaints here. Wife will get good mileage out of it.
Thought about adding ram but as previous poster mentioned, it defeats the original purchase purpose.

Anybody know of a good touchpad software for this laptop? Looks like it's using the windows generic one, there's no way to customize it. The biggest problem I have is the double finger scroll, it's inverted (to what I'm used to), and there's no way to change it.

Edit: Found a solution, go to MS Store and download ETDProperties app

Now just need a solution to remap the extra french key beside the LeftShift and turn that into a LeftShift key as well.

Edit: Download "Sharpkeys", this program allows you remap anything you want on your keyboard to another key of your choice, it write is into the registry (you can alwayschange it back). Simple to use, you press the key that you want to change, in this case, that stupid added key beside the LeftShift, then you press the key that you want to change it to, in this case you press "LeftShift". So now technically I have 2 LeftShift keys (right beside each other). You can go f#@$ youself bilingual keyboard!

Downloaded it from MS, but says "needs elevation"? Did you download from MS store? Thanks.
I'll try again later....

EDIT: Uninstalled MS version and downloaded from CNET---Worked GREAT!
Thank you so much!

OP please change price to $499
How do I do that? Do I straight up change it, or delete the thread. I'm kind of new here.\

Edit: Never mind, think I got it. Let me know if I didn't do it right :)

Well Staples screwed me. I ordered online Friday night when this laptop had come back in stock online. Received order confirmation email immediately. Late last night I received an order cancellation email from Staples.
Took them 3 days to figure out that they couldn't fulfill my order, during which time I could have been looking for another deal. Smiling Face With Horns

Same thing happened to me. I called Customer Service today and was told to go to a store that has stock and ask for a price match to BF price.

Even if that works, poblem is that I also lost out on 20x AM on BF and the $35 OFF code that does not seem to work anymore.

I am done with Staples!

Same happened to me. Order placed on Thursday am and was cancelled yesterday.
Yesterday, I chatted with the support service she said I could go in store to pick it up and then get the same price as before with coupons but didn't want to take the chance and argue so we placed an order online, she then applied the diffenre on my credit card. This morning received an email that this new order is canceled! Grr. Oh well, I guess that's ai sign that I should get this laptop.

I ended up getting one of these laptops after going into a store with stock and explaining my story to the manager. I had to send her the order/cancellation emails that I had received. They ended up selling me the laptop for 399 and they also applied the 25$ off coupon that I had originally used. This laptop better be worth all the hassle.
