Considering its a budget laptop, its fine, more than enough for OS. You can have 1-2 games in SSD (depends on game size obviously). When SSDs become a mandatory requirement for games (it will become recommended req in a year maybe, but HDD should still be minimum req for ~3 years maybe), your GPU might not remain powerful enough for top games.

There's always the option to replace the M.2 drive, SSD prices are falling & you can get good NVMe SSDs for 10k now (even 8.5k on sales).

256 GB SSD will leave you with around 230GB 130-140GB of usable storage considering the space for WINDOWS installation + some mandatory software. This is considering the average user who may play 1-2 AAA title games, at the max 3 games on a consistent basis. Based on the post #1 , you should be able to play the RDR 2, GTA V, Cricket 19 easily. You may also use your desktop to play games. I personally find Desktops to be much better and comfortable while playing games.

But, make sure to store media, movies, documents on the 1 TB HDD and use the SSD only for the relevant softwares.

In case you feel that the 256GB SSD is running out, it is always possible to upgrade to a higher SSD or swap the 1 TB HDD for a M.2 SATA based SSD.

No, you will definitely not get 230GB free after Win10 + apps. A totally empty 256GB SSD might have close to 240GB free. With time OS drive with apps fill a lot of space. Realistically you should get 130-180GB based on how many apps you install.

My laptop's C drive was partitioned to have 231GB (SSD). After OS + apps + other stuff, almost 150GB is used. I used about 60GB for office stuff, so have just 20GB free on it.

You can swap the HDD for a 2.5" SATA SSD, not M.2 one. Cheaper TUF A15 has just 1 M.2 slot.

Don't worry about it. Only store important things like OS, important software and small/regularly played games on it, and you should be fine.

PS. No credit card problems this time? Wonder what was causing it.

Oh, lol. Maybe the limit for ur card was 61k and you were buying the laptop worth 63k. The time I bought my laptop, my credit card was refusing the payment cause of just ~2k difference.

Nothing specific as such

Look for physical damage if any. All keys working, wifi, speakers, display hinge, display (dead pixels), screen flicker, track pad and the ports. Rest everything can be updated / correctly via software.

You can uninstall the bloatware softwares like VPN, Anti Virus (Windows Defender is reasonable enough).

If your device doesn't come with a licensed copy of MS OFFICE, you can purchase one or else you another alternative like Libra Office (which I use) and I think you should be good to go.

For the battery, no need to worry, modern day batteries are much more damage proof and usually last upto a 100000 charging cycles. You can charge the laptop once the power goes below 20%.

  1. Reinstall Microsoft .NET framework (for Windows 7 or below)
  2. Reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages.
  3. Update DirectX
