From which location did you grab it for $300?

If this is exactly the same model, this is a reasonable price.

Quad core, 512 gb ssd and 8gb ram are not specs you get at this price point- all of the windows s laptops sub 500 have dual core low voltage processors and you might get lucky with 8gb but mostly 4gb of ram. This is a good find at this price. I dont think anyone buying 300 dollar laptops cares about HD vs full HD. That quad core will go way farther than any of the CPUs at the 500 dollar and below price point

Is this a 720p screen? Makes it slightly less of a good deal

FYI the closest standard voltage non fire sale quad core is the i3 quad core HP laptop at bestbuy for 599 right now. There are some other quad cores if you look hard- the Acer 15 has a low end non i series quad core at 500....but again NO quad cores at 300 (im not counting the random MEdiatek quad core on the chromebook duet)- if your budget is 500 and below this is an easy buy. If you are expecting all your bells and whistles you need to be looking at 600 and up.

If you can actually find this at 300$ it's a great deal.

Don't know why people are complaining since you get a quad core CPU, 8Gb of ram and an SSD for a price where you usually get a dual core N4200 with 4Gb and a 5400rpm HDD or a cheap chromebook

Too bad not FHD, otherwise pretty good deal considering everything else. Wonder if SSD and ram can be swapped/upgraded.
There's a sucker born every minute.

$300 is a great price.

Relax about the FHD at this price.

768p is fine for productivity.

Can't be beggars and choosers, placards don't pay bills.

I'm hitting some massive fire sales through B2B vendors, businesses may be pricing in a recession and Biden inflation later.

God bless, gents.
