modern realities, laptops from Chinese manufacturers have less and less
competition with devices of A-brands, which in turn contributes to active
development of this market in Russia and CIS countries. Among the big
number of Chinese brands is quite difficult to find something really
quality and competitive. One of the brands that produces
