    I recently purchased this laptop, once you set it up and update the laptop to Windows 10 pro you're able to download google chrome and add it to your tool bar, so you're not stuck with bing and edge. It took a little while but I'm able to use google chrome instead of edge! Which made this laptop more worth the price.
