[Microsoft Store] Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 - $649.00

Hi guys,

I've been looking for a laptop. This deal is mentioned in the Microsoft 12-day deal thread but I think the price point is good for it to have a separate thread.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/store/d ... chspecstab

Description
• 14-inch Full HD touchscreen
• Intel Core i5-8250U
• 8GB memory/128GB SSD
• Intel HD Graphics 620
• Include Lenovo Active Pen

USE Ebates $4.33 back lol. Chances are they might even reverse that.

One option was Acer Swift at Best buy for $699 with similar specs but i think Lenovo is supposed to be better than Acer? I'm not sure but worth discussing.

You can possibly add/swap the SDD

**** it

Bought one

If I find something better on boxing day I'll return it, I probably won't open it until I know I'm keeping it

Hopefully the return process is not difficult since I don't think we have a Microsoft store in Ottawa

Thanks! Can you put in another SSD 2.5" to compliment the m.2 ssd? Or is their just the m.2 ssd slot on this model?
It sure looks that way in the HW Maint manual, but I wouldn't want to say for sure until I see the actual laptop, Keep an eye on the Slickdeals thread, which I'm sure will be covering all angles by morning:

To the other question, yes to RAM (16GB), but since there's only one RAM slot, you lose the existing 8.

I'm interested in the active pen support. Does this include a pen? Anyone know how it compares to the surface?

Anyone know if this would be capable of outputting to a 4K monitor at 60 Hz?

It only has onboard graphics, if you’re looking for high quality graphics this is not the computer.

From what I can see in the service manual , the SSD is m.2 but there's space for an additional sata drive .The only thing is , if it's like any Dell , this might ship without the metal cage that holds a SATA SSD inside the unit since this model ships with m.2 drive .Can only tell once it can be opened .
