- Screens are likely comparable
- Build quality is likely comparable (within earshot)
- Active Pen Inclusion (Likely)
- Fingerprint Reader (Likely) [Nod to @Behacad]
- 15.6" Form Factor -- Better Desktop Replacement Size, Still Portable
- Numpad Inclusion -- Big for Data People [Accountants, Engineers, Business-ees, Etc.]
- Costco Return and Warranty -- Ridiculous, They're too nice... unless you abuse their trust.
- (2x) SODIMM Slots [Likely] -- Supporting Dual Channel SODIMMs up to 64GB at 3200Mhz
- Active Pen Inclusion (Confirmed)
- Fingerprint Reader
- Intel AX200NGW WiFi 6 Card Installed -- Exact Card I've Recommended
- 512GB NVMe SSD -- Double the storage seen on the Flex, for some folks ... no upgrade required.
- USB-C Power Delivery + DP 1.4 -- Charging and 4K60 should be supported through USB-C
