Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings using a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The machine learned model takes into account factors including: the age of a review, helpfulness votes by customers and whether the reviews are from verified purchases.
Why this is cheapest model I don't know. Plug and play all the way, took over from my old chromebook where left off. Won't leave home without it. Android apps a snap, not sure why all other negative comments. Only issue is support which on this model is upto 2023 perhaps that explains the price difference. However at this price, functionality point its a winner. Touchscreen, backlit keyboard fast processing with multiple tabs....go for it. Would also recommend buying Anker USB-C hub to give external ethernet and HDMI, all works, plug and play.
