The Thermal Design Power is 15 watts for this AMD Ryzen 3 processor for a longer battery life of up to 8 hours. 4GB DDR4 SDRAM is sufficient at this price level for running 3-4 browsers and a couple of applications simultaneously without running into any major problems.
You can be out and about all day long and get your work done without recharging for up to 8 hours. This will depend on the power energy settings and what you use the laptop for. 128GB Solid State Drive offers some storage space and plenty of speed and should be enough for most users as long as they don’t save a lot of videos and media files. 14″ diagonal high definition SVA BrightView WLED-backlit display has the 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. You have more screen space on the 14″ micro-edge HD display and you have more to look at. AMD Radeon Vega 3 graphics has a video card benchmark score of 1072.

There is no optical drive and you can connect one easily wirelessly or through one of the USB ports. Both the memory and the storage can be upgraded to very large amounts like 16GB and 1TB SSD. It will be fine with the media editing and some entry-level gaming. It will run very smoothly overall with the extra RAM as the AMD Ryzen 3 is a fairly powerful processor.
