[Microsoft Store] Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 82HV003QUS 15.6 2-in-1 Ryzen 7 5700U 16GB Mem, 512GB SSD $874.99

Was helping a family member find a laptop for school. We were initially eyeing the Flex 5 14" at bestbuy but after searching around some more I found this version. It's a tad bit bigger but the specs are also significantly better.

The Flex lines is generally well received amongst consumers and this model here seems like its a great deal.
- Fast CPU
- 16GB of Memory
- 512GB SSD
- 2-in-1

Only downside I think is that the screen is only 250nits which may not be so bright thought it should be fine in most indoor environment. Other than it seems like a pretty good value deal.

I believe you have to add the gift card to your account first, then use it at check out.

But I might be wrong, so please provide DP if you can, thanks

This is a touchscreen 2in1, folds into tablet mode.
It also works with the pressure sensitive active pen for drawing, not sure if this one comes with it.

What do you know about this CPU fan noise? Some reviews say about it.

The screen displays 45% NTSC, which usually means your colors are gonna be very muted/bland, so don't expect to do any kind of photo/video processing if you need color accuracy.

The 250 nits may be hard to use in a brightly lit school room and maybe very hard to use outdoors in a sunny day.

I'm pretty sure this is the spec sheet for this machine (correct me if I'm wrong):
