The 2K display is samurai sword-sharp, and the included Wacom Active Pen stylus is super-responsive with nearly 5,000 pressure levels ensuring a fine level of precision (great for making notes by hands, or sketching out ideas); the stylus recharges in 15 seconds for 90 minutes of use!

If you’ve got a high school or college kid in need of new equipment, this laptop is a win. “Perfect for my online schooling — really nice and compact,” says one of many satisfied users. A timely buy at $880, and an impressive $220 off.
