Windows 11 Home
S Mode
Windows 11 Home in S mode optimizes your experience for security and performance by only allowing apps from the Microsoft Store to be installed using Microsoft Edge for safe browsing.
A New Start Position
Windows 11 has been completely redesigned from its predecessor to emphasize productivity, creativity, and ease of use. The customizable Start Menu is now at the center of the taskbar and utilizes the cloud, allowing you to quickly find and access recent files, regardless of what platform or device was previously used to view them. The streamlined Start Menu design also lets you pin apps and recent files in addition to powering down the system.
Making Productivity a Snap
Multitask with speed and efficiency with the ability to snap apps side by side. Snap Layouts and Snap Groups help to keep your windows organized using different layouts that are designed to fully optimize your screen space, no matter its size and resolution. Windows 11 also remembers their positions, so you can resume from where you left off when selecting Snap Groups from the task bar, allowing you to switch between both individual applications and entire projects. Snap Layouts are also automatically restored when docking laptops with external monitors.
Microsoft Teams Integration
Stay connected with friends, family, coworkers, and clients with Microsoft Teams Chat integrated onto the Windows 11 taskbar. With a touch, you can connect to your contacts via text, voice, and video, regardless of whether they're using Windows, Android, or iOS devices. You can also communicate with those who don't have the Teams app installed using two-way SMS messaging.
Adapting to You
The Adaptive Input feature automatically optimizes the Windows 11 interface to however you prefer to interact with your device, whether it's using a mouse, keyboard, touch, voice, or handwriting.
Next Level Gaming
Windows 11 is designed to deliver smooth, immersive gaming experiences with DirectX 12 Ultimate providing realistic graphics at high frame rates while Auto HDR automatically adjusts your game's lighting and contrast for high dynamic range. DirectStorage technology streamlines data access to better take advantage of high-speed devices such as NVMe solid-state drives and directly from graphics cards without dragging down the CPU, which minimizes load times while helping to reduce artifacts such as texture popping. Topping it all off is Xbox Game Pass integration, which provides you with access to a massive library of games with a membership subscription.
Redesigned Microsoft Store
The Microsoft Store is rebuilt from the ground up for a streamlined experience when looking for content such as apps, games, movies, and shows. Apps downloaded from the Store have been tested for security and family safety. Android apps will also be available on the Microsoft Store through the Amazon Appstore and can be used directly on your PC from the taskbar or Start Menu.

I'm glad I found this store. Shipping was fast and item arrived on time. The laptop works wonderfully so far, its fast, it's lightweight and simply amazing.

Junk!

Absolute junk! Screen looked like it was not completely flat right out of the box and died only an hour after initial setup.

Underwhelming display

By Gavin

The machine runs well and has capable enough specs, however, it's got a very low quality overall feel. Most noticeable is the totally mediocre display. Text appears sloppy and overall has a lack of crispness.

A Solid Laptop for the Money

By Thomas

The build on this laptop doesn't look very premium, but it is a solid performer with an okay display. It's nice to have plenty of ports in this spacious laptop. In fact, it's a bit bigger than I expected for a 14 laptop, but this brings an added feature in the form of an actual numeric keypad. We've only had it for a few weeks now, so it's too soon to talk about reliability. For now, it's getting the job done for video conferencing and basic home office use with Google apps.

Seriously, I was a little nervous because it's the first time I buy a computer online. No regrets, exactly what I was looking for, and B&H is a reliable company. The computer is brand new and the specs are accurate.

Good Purchase.
