Hmm I'm still in my return period on the Flex 5. This looks pretty good! So an extra $200 for dedicated GPU and RAM expandability. The SSD is also double my current storage. But the Flex is pretty light.

Edit - looks like there is a customize build option as well, add the Ryzen 7, remove HDD, upgrade the display and GPU to 1650Ti and it's still under $1500. But that prices me out of this deal as it would be $700 more than the Flex 5 at that point. I think I'll build a desktop instead. Still looks good to me though OP!

BAPC Canada is following this on reddit.

Small chance the RAM may be soldered as someone was complaining about the RAM allotment. If this RAM is soldered this is only a gaming machine.

If the RAM is not soldered, this is a powerhouse workstation for high performance productivity workers... and a gaming machine.

Let's see which card Lenovo played.

2x4GB offers the possibility of dual channel memory performance. Faster memory configuration.

i assume he's asking because if there's an empty sodimm slot he'll add another 8gb stick of ram. if its 2x4 instead of 1x8 you have to buy 2 8gb sticks if you want 16gb of ram.

Note the screen is not 300 nits. It is 250 nits. Not sure if it would be a deal-breaker to gamers.

i'm pretty sure the deal breaker for gamers is the 1650. i'm not even sure if you can push 120 frames in modern titles on that card but I haven't looked at reviews for the mobile version.

For me, 2x4 means you have to dump the original two sticks to upgrade to 16GB, if it is 1X8, then you just need to buy one stick so nothing will be wasted.

Yeah. that too. It depends on the game as well. I guess high fps is mostly good for shooting/action games, but may not be a huge issue for solo/rpg games.

I think there are two ram slots on board, the problem is whether it is 2x4 or 1x8.

I think you meant we tend to take posts from BAPC on reddit to RFD :P
