If display brightness and contrast is important to you, stay away from this.

Do they still do the 10% student discount?

I was about to be real choked until I read the specs and realized it was the Intel one.

Usually I'm an Intel one but the AMD is better.
It's a hair more money, but you get double the storage and a better GPU.

English keyboard?
Based on the model number including 'us' and the pictures I would say yes.

Reposted from the other thread.

Positives:
- Decent deal (However, Applicable Rakuten CB is only 1.5%)
- CPU Performance Reasonable
- 2-in-1 at this price is solid

Negatives:
- UHD 620 is a crippled GPU compared to the AMD Vega 10
- Did I mention the GPU?

I give this a 7.7 / 10 as far as laptop deals.

Good, but nothing to phone home about.

I would hardly call UHD620 'crippled'. It's just not for gaming, and not everyone wants to game on their notebook. Personally if I game, it would be on my phone.

Battery life is typically significantly better on Intel vs. AMD. Yes you can tweak power plans on the AMD version, but you can also do the same on Intel, and get even more battery life.

Apparently this guy does have a phone.

I (along with everyone else booing at Blizzard) still prefer PCs.

I standby my somewhat arbitrary score. Because this machine has virtually no CB, it only comes out to a few dollars cheaper than the sale price of the Ryzen 3700U Flex.

Unlike the Intel Version, there are 4 active threads with tips, tricks, tweaks, and accessories by yours' truly on the AMD Flex. It makes it easier to navigate the Ryzen 3700U Flex post-purchases.

As a right-now purchase, I think the Intel Flex is a reasonable compromise, but I feel we can do better approaching Black Friday. There are many reasons to want a better GPU however.

By buying from the Microsoft store, you have option to return it by January 31, 2020. So if you find a better deal before then you are covered.

The old Texas Buy and Hold.

I can't fault you without being a hypocrite, nor can I fault the great state in the greatest nation.
