The cooling fan has a cool LED light-up effect. Well, it’s cool if you like such things. If not, I haven’t found a way to switch it off without opening up the system.  

That fan initially bothered me because I thought it might be noisy, but the sound turns out to be very unobtrusive.

The MP60 comes in two variants — a good 8GB RAM/256GB storage version, and a beefier 16GB/512GB edition. These components are backed up by a Quad-core Intel Celeron N5095 processor and Intel UHD Graphics GPU.

For testing, I was sent the 16GB/512GB version.

The detachable foundation allows you to boost the storage by 2TB using a 2 . 5-inch HARD DRIVE or SOLID STATE DRIVE. This is easily done, and the only tool a person need is a Phillips screwdriver.
