To return or to not return: Lenovo Flex 4 15.6

Hi everyone. I already posted about this laptop here to ask about the seller.
The model I ordered is: https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.a ... 6834331867
I got it for $419 CAD including shipping/tax.
It has the i7-6500U with 8GB DDR4. I have a 240GB SSD to put into it (though I am still looking for one for my desktop) as it comes with a slow 5400 RPM 1 TB drive.
Intel HD 520 graphics.
There aren't many YouTube videos and reviews on this laptop.
For $419 was this a good deal or should I just send it back?
Having buyer's remorse sucks...
Thanks in advance

It looks fine, put a SSD, it seems like it'll be a good computer for majority of people.

Any idea on why this laptop isn't a popular buy?

Outside of the business class notebooks, Lenovo doesn't really make great consumer notebooks. Its cheap, you get what you pay for. But like I said before, for most people its fine. If it breaks, buy a new one.

I mean retail price is $1000, not sure if people actually buy it at this price. $419 is actually a big buy for me to be honest...

Is there anything I can get better than this laptop around the same cost?

Good deal for sure. I bought my Lenovo Laptop 4 years ago and its been great. Hasn't slowed down at all.

It's a good deal. Keep it. You won't find much better for that price.

Specs look good. Full HD, IPS, touchscreen is nice. Hopefully, it has an M.2 slot, so you can add an SSD, while keeping the HDD.

Having said all that, I wouldn't want anything other than a ThinkPad ;) .

Update: laptop is here but sent me intel pentium 4405u model, when I needed a powerful machine. Not recommending vipoutlet.com in the future.

that's not nice (dif. specs then you were told) ... but I would say it is a very good deal anyway ... 2980 vs 4403 try it maybe it is "ok" for what you need ...

They can send me a full refund but I'm thinking of asking for some compensation for the time wasted...
The laptop was Grade A condition but when I received it, it has scratches and a white spot (pressure mark) on screen. Very disappointed.

Send it back if you can. I would be so pissed if I was expecting an i7 and got a pentium; I was seriously questioning how you found an i7 laptop for so cheap.
