This budget laptop features an eighth-gen Intel Core i5 CPU, 8 GB of RAM, and a Full HD (1,920×1,080-pixel) display powered by Nvidia GeForce MX250 graphics. It supplies 512GB SSD for storage. Missing current, the 10th-gen Intel CPU is a bit disappointing, but getting a Full HD display at this price is a boon when many budget models offer only 1,366×768-pixel resolution.
