[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

If you think they'll be a better deal on boxing day...30 day return policy and easy returns with MS Store. Thanks OP.

**** 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

It's easy you go to your order history on the site under your Microsoft account you bought it with. In Order history, select Request a return. Follow the instructions on the screen to get a prepaid shipping label for the return (FedEx or UPS usually). Put the prepaid label on the box it shipped in and drop it off at FedEx or UPS (whichever the prepaid label is for). When they receive it they issue you a refund.

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.

Thanks for the response. I've been watching the thread on there too. Someone else there said "Looks like it should be expandable with another 2.5" drive.

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?
