    • Bait and Switch?

      from Barrie, ON on January 29, 2019

      may end up taking this to consumer affairs, advertising a 3.9 chip when its 2.3, talking to the store that sold it to me today to give them a chance to make this right .

    • wrong system info

      from Ottawa, ON on January 9, 2019

      The processor speed is 2.30 GHZ. But according to the best buy website it is 3.9 GHZ.

    • Garbage

      from Saint John, NB on January 5, 2019

      I bought this laptop today intending to use it for video editing. It has 8GB of RAM, a 3.9 GHz Intel Core i5-8300H processor, and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphic card. I assumed this would be enough to edit 1080p video, and the sales representative in Best Buy assured me that it could do the job nicely. It took nearly 10 seconds to do the most simple tasks: open an internet browser, open my email, open the computer's system settings, etc. Scrolling down a page would cause it to freeze up. Editing video and color correcting the footage was extremely slow, especially for a computer with a dedicated graphics card. This computer is a piece of garbage and I will be returning it as soon as possible.
