It's a preference thing- Some prefer having a longer enter key/left shift VS a tall enter + small shift.
Switching form one layout to the other is do-able, just takes effort

Yes, in fact the power brick only plugs into the USB-C. I've ordered a USB-C to barrel adapter off of ebay to use the traditional power plug and free-up the USB-C port.

According to Lenovo's website, this model number does not include a pen. I also didn't see one listed on the costco website.

You had this one?
Can the usb-c be used to connect a monitor (maybe need a usb-c to Displayport or usb-c to HDMI 2.0 adapter)? what's the max resolution & refresh rate we can get?
If this works and support 2560*1440 @ 75Hz, I can connect it to my monitor using only one usb-c cable (the monitor can do usb-c charging).

Would this computer be good for stuff like connecting into work over citrix, microsoft office stuff, browser-based apps running all at the same time? I'm fine doing this on my 12 year old E8400 desktop with 8g of ram, but I've started getting bluescreens and I'm not keen on troubleshooting on this old of a PC. I want to get a good bang for my buck if I'm going to spend $1000 on a new computer. I'm used to using my computers for 8-10 years before upgrading so each time I look at computers I feel like it's a whole new world out there.

E: also thinking it's time I made my work computer a laptop.

Yes this is absolutely enough. You caould even do that with the 4500U version from Amazon that others have mentioned.

The Lenovo Flex 5 USB C does not have video output, they reserve it for higher end models.

thanks. i cancelled my order.
I have last year's Flex14. Having no USB-C video out is annoying.

I picked up one from Amazon, touchpad was flimsy, not sure if I am spoiled by Surface/Mac's. Returned. If you can live with not the best touchpad, the value is there.

I have the Amazon 4500u model, which is ostensibly the same. I don't believe it has Displayport unfortunately, power only.

ABS/plastic. I actually prefer it to the HP Envy metal body, but that's probably just me.

Why are these newer laptop models heavier than even 2 years ago? A proper 14" ultrabook, where most users buy it for commuting to school/work, should be maximum 3 lbs and as close to 2 lbs as possible. Unless the extra bloat is giving me a more durable chassis, that should in theory survive accidental falls better, I'm not impressed with this trend.
