11.6-inch LCD-backlit HD touch display has the 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and IPS panel with the large 178-degree viewing angles vertically and horizontally. Sound quality, tuned by THX Audio is reasonable through the dual speakers and there is a webcam on the front bezel. It has the integrated Intel UHD 600 (Gemini Lake) graphics card that offers similar performance to the HD 500, UHD 520 or UHD 615.

And 4GB RAM is also not a lot but adequate at this budget level. Windows 10 in S mode can be switched to Home version through the Start menu and Microsoft store and also qualifies for Windows 11 upgrade. Connectivity options include the 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, a mini HDMI output, a micro SD slot for expansion up to 512GB, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, a headphone port, the charging port and the power button.
