Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
The Core i5 processor offers sufficient computing performance for all the usual application areas. An NVMe SSD (M.2-2242) from SK Hynix that offers 512 GB of storage space is used as the system drive. The system does not appear to be suited for real-time video and audio processing.
