Will it come to about the same total price?
I don't game or won't game on the laptop, for sure.
I was looking at a demo in a Best Buy store. It's an Asus Zenbook UX430UA w/ i5-8250U. It only has 8gb of RAM though. The Asus website mentions something about 'onboard' memory. Does that mean you can't upgrade it to 16gb? On a Crucial website, it has a section for 'adding/buying' ram for that particular model of laptop, though. It's confusing?
I guess you can try to buy a 16gb version but I was just curious.
Costco has a Dell Inspirion 7000 i7-8550U with 16gb of RAM. I'm not in the market yet (not ready to buy) and was hoping there might be some discounts/sales around Xmas time although I'll see what's available around Black Friday.
So, the main 2 (wait, 3?) questions: 1) can you upgrade the ram on any of these thin laptops? 8gb to 16gb; 2) Which to choose if you go with one of these laptops - Asus Zenbook (model, mentioned), Dell (same), Acer (Swift 3/Spin 3?), HP Probook
Edit: Hey, a 4th question!: 4) Is it worth it to wait or configure a 16gb version of the (same) model of whichever brand is chosen?
The Acer review on this site mentions that the memory (8gb) is soldered (on).....so, these laptops aren't upgradeable for memory?

Edit #2: if anyone cares or considers replying... ;-) ..... I compared the Asus and the Acer (in the review above) and agree with the points regarding the Acer. It was a good price but the Asus (matte) display looked way better to me. I could view it at various angles and I preferred the matte display over the glossy one (in general). The price of the Acer was pretty good, though. I was hoping to find a laptop with the same specs but 'the display of the Asus' for about $1K.
