I didn't think to check to see if it had bluetooth with these specs because my last laptop was a base toshiba and it had it. Staples used next day shipping for free which was nice and it was packaged well.
Excerpt: the quality seemed really cheap. the keyboard is advertised as premium frameless keyboard. it's awful. When you press the keys down the whole keyboard caves into the computer. i ended up returning it.
