International Order? We stock the following language keyboard layouts for this model: US English. The AC adapter is compatible with power grids around the world. We stock US/Canadian, [censored] ("UK" style), [censored] ("Europlug"), and Australian AC adapters/plugs. For other countries please inquire. Shipping to most international destinations takes 3-5 business days. Taxes/duties not included. Please contact support for other AC adapter plugs.

All laptops and desktops are assembled at our US facility. This means taxes for those outside the US are not included in the prices shown. The taxes depend on the final destination of the goods rather than where the order was assembled. Orders going outside the US will therefore have any local taxes collected on delivery.

If your computer has ever come to a crawl you probably didn't have enough memory. A lack of memory is the leading cause of systems becoming unbearably slow. So stock up now when memory is dirt cheap and avoid those expensive upgrades.

Don't just get a bigger drive. Get a faster drive. Experience twice the speed with a new solid state drive. Newer SSD technology can give you that boost you always wanted cutting start times in half and increasing the speed of programs.

M.2 SSD drives are a new smaller form factor type of hard drive that are much faster than traditional 'spinning disk' drives. SSD drives will usually cut boot and application start times by about half. The newest of NVME M.2 SSD drives are even faster.

Need internet on the go? The LT4120 chip supports most mobile broadband (cellular internet) providers in the US: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T MVNOs. Those using Sprint or in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa are advised to go with the EM7455 chip.

Some mobile broadband providers make obtaining service needlessly difficult. To ensure a more seamless user experience we're recommending these SIM cards where service is available.

Have you ever wanted the convenience of a docking station? Just connect one USB-C cable instead of half a dozen. Monitor, keyboard, mouse, and maybe even a pair of speakers? Mic 2-in-1 port, HDM, VGA, 3 x USB 3 ports, gigabit LAN, SD card slot.
