Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Small powerhouse

Bought as my carry laptop for my camera bag. Light weight so adds very little to the bag, yet is a fast n powerful laptop with a fast thunderbolt connection for quick transfer.

Hands down the BEST laptop, Intel is a winner

Super strong performance, yet ultrathin and very light weight laptop. Intel makes the great components, I feel the greatness in routine use with AcerSwift5. Nothing can beat Intel i7 with 16gb ram, Intel Iris GPU, Intel Wifi6 and 1TB storage. It handles heavy simulations and graphic softwares I use very easily. Intel Evo standards takes it to the next level such as wakes up in less than second, and great battery life. I upgraded to Windows 11 for free. Very pleased with the purchase.

Laptop is so great!

I'm using it for my simple editing of photos and graphics design and video editing. It's really works fine and it's fast. The screen is a bit small but it's still fine with me. It doesn't comes with screen protector so better to buy it too. Overall for me it's work great. Thank you! B&h.

This a great laptop. I was able to update it to Windows 11 with no issues. It am running it dual boot with Windows 11 and Zorin OS. One thing I want to point out is you CAN charge with the USB-C port. The Q&A section says you cannot but this is incorrect. I plugged in the USB-C charger from my work laptop and confirmed it does charge.

Great product

Small but powerful

Nice laptop for the amount paid, which everything I need to do office work and home items. It is a touchscreen, but I do not use that feature very much, prefer my mouse. Completes tasks quickly, no lag time, as with my old computer of 6 years. I thought the screen might be small, my old one was 15.6 - but the screen size is fine. I can hook up a 2nd monitor if I want. Battery size is good, I can go 6 hours without plugging in, running 3 programs and 5 tabs open on the internet. I did change the backlights for the keyboard, initial setup was to go on when I touched the keys, now they are off except at night. Easy setup, easy moving my data from the old laptop to this one, easy setup of email and Office. I did upgrade to Windows 11, for free. Not a fan of Windows 11 format, but will get used to it.

Love it!
