The memory is a real issue.

8gb soldered.

Used to be fine but with the new bloat in windows + antivirus/ransomware protection + lots of browser tabs ; I've seen my office machines go beyond 8gb. Add on some light/medium gaming that this machine is capable and .... It's probably not a great deal.


The ironic thing. I have an old 8gb Lenovo Flex 5 that my 12 year old took over for remote schooling. And he regularly uses up all the ram. The kids just never close ANYTHING as they are used to the ipad /iphone model where memory is all managed by the OS. He's running zoom, a gazillion chrome tabs AND has his games (ie: fortnite) open in the background even when not playing. It's a long way of saying that the kids need a MORE powerful machine; not less unless you teach them how to manage memory properly. I ended up upgrading to to 16gb ram for him instead.

I've always wondered how the generation after Gen Z will view and approach "traditional" computers, so this is actually really interesting to hear.

Only 8GB of soldered ram is a deal breaker

Yes, 16GB is the new comfortable minimum. 8GB is now the bare minimum.

Windows 10 seems to eat about 3.5-4GB just idling after boot, start using edge/chrome and I've hit 10GB easy with only a few tabs open! My work computer has 8GB and I've run into out of memory errors with a few heavy spreadsheets. Wild how much bloat there is, all this always on crap running in the background; at least on my personal computer I can decide what runs, but at work its onedrive, teams, this and that all chugging away.

Windows also adapts to the available memoryo on your PC. If you have more to idle into it will keep more background services running, so the count your PC shows due to windows isnt really accurate.

I got the 5700U version of this, with 16GB of ram and the 1TB ssd. It's a really nice and sleek laptop.
