Good specs, I am waiting for 10th gen CPUs, don't want software fix for Intel meltdown hardware issue.
Please DON'T PM me for SPC codes, kindly ask for them in the Samsung thread's (HOT DEALS) section and I will respond with one.

Would I be missing out on a lot with the 7th gen cpu?
From my research it's about a 20-25% performance difference 7th-8th gen i7. 8th gen seems to have thermal issues, I haven't seen anything negative about 7th gen.

(I'm probably wrong that is just my understanding)

Im in the market for a new laptop and these specs look solid, but this thread and its 79 pages had me reconsider

Yeah good info in that thread. Now I am wondering which company even make a reliable laptop these because I keep hearing about problems from just about every manufacturer.

That's a great deal. I have the Yoga 920 8th gen, 16/512GB, and the only thing I hate is the absolutely horrible battery life. I think it's the 4K screen, but I'll only get maybe 3-4 hours unplugged. When I first bought it, Lenovo had a built in battery management program with numerous customizable profiles to keep the battery healthy. Then for some reason, they eliminated that in an update, with no way to revert. Other than that, these are fantastic laptops. Boot time when new was about 6 seconds, but as programs get added, it's now up to about 16 seconds.

I'm very tempted to grab this. I was going to jump on the Thinkpad bandwagon, but a P or an X with 1050 level gpu is going to be at least 1600, and non flip. I'm thinking this + a 200 dollar warranty and I come out ahead? I think :|

two "issues" so far, the TB3 port only has 2 lanes, so no eGPU in this I assume? Also, memory isn't removable (probably not an issue with 16)

Only 4 physical processor cores. GPU is kinda meh for 2019. Plus I've had bad experience with the lack of BIOS and driver updates for non-ThinkPad line from Lenovo. Their consumer-oriented product lines are not something I would recommend to friends, nor family.

I'm going to spin the wheel. 3 year warranty for 90 bucks (they were offering 1 extra for free, but that's over apparently) . Also if anyone is reading this the rep told me there's a new sale on the 20th. So who knows if that'll be better.
