With an 11th gen Intel CPU you can be assured that the laptop has a recent CPU. Whilst not the latest, due to the release of the Intel 12 Series CPUs, it is still recent. However, with the release of the 12th gen you may wish to choose that instead to ensure the longevity of your new laptop.

An integrated card tends to not offer as much graphics processing power as a dedicated video card.

The maximum memory capacity is 32 GB via the 1 (0 Available) memory slots.

The RAM slot type is 260-Pin SO-DIMM.

Connections

You'll find Wifi 5 inside the laptop, which is the previous generation. However, this does not mean its necessarily a major disadvantage. Wifi 5 is more than capable for the majority of the users, with only top tier users really requiring Wifi 6 at the moment.

With the latest standard of Bluetooth included, Bluetooth 5, you'll be set for a few more years of ensuring any new peripheral purchased is fully compatible.

Ports & Peripherals

When it comes to ports, it's offered with 2 x USB Type-A (USB 3.1 / USB 3.2 Gen 1) ports. 2 Type-A ports is usually enough for regular laptop users, giving you enough freedom for the peripherals you need.

There's an option of using the Type-C USB ports, with 1 x USB 3.1 / USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports being offered too, allowing both the use of almost any current peripheral, but also adaptors & dongles allowing use of additional ports for the laptop.

With a backlit keyboard, you'll clearly see your keys and ensure minimal mistakes when you're typing what you need to type.

Don't fret about your wired headphones though, the 3.5mm headphone jack will let you plug right in.
