The initial bootup may take 2 hours or even 10 hours on some units, reportedly by Lazada buyer feedbacks. But after doing the initial startup the computer run fast without any lags

As for Lazada 7 day policy, you can return the laptop if you found any damage or defects on the laptop for full refund or exchange. Be sure to fully and thoroughly check the laptop within 7 days for any deadpixel or cracks on the screen.

With its thin profile factor, it resembles the Apple Macbook Laptops and the logo even lights up. What really impressive is the battery life, with 10,000mah claims to run up to 8hrs of usage. Although it gets warm on heavy usage.

About the memory the laptop only gets a 32GB ROM which 10GB is already set for windows 10, you will get around 18-20GB remaining free. But you can expand the memory thru the microsd slot up 64GB.

Speakers are standard sounding expected from a cheap laptop. There are 2 USB inputs one is 2.0 and the other 3.0. There is also HDMI output good for connecting external display or a projector.

Pros:

  • Cheap Laptop
  • Big Display (14.1 inches) for its price
  • 10,000mah long lasting battery
  • Thin Profile
  • Premium Look and Feel
  • HDMI output
  • Good trackpad
Cons:

  • Limited Storage 32GB built in only

Nonetheless you get what you pay and for only $100 no complaints will be given. This laptop is not good for gaming, but it is good for editing and encoding documents, perfect for students and teachers alike. For more information you can visit http://www.sparc.com.ph
