they also have the HD card version without nvidia for $489

They are offering these with 2x egg points so you get about $10 worth of credit at newegg with purchase. This is cheaper than it was last week. Not the best reviews, but i thought it was worth a post. seems really good for the specs.

Please put the dreaded "Refurbished" connotation in the title.

I looked at one of these (new) at one of the membership-only warehouse stores. It was the only laptop that the store staff couldn't get to respond to its keyboard, and in tablet mode it was super slow---even after rebooting it several times. It could have been a lemon but it was enough to discourage me a bit. Then I went web searching for reviews---yes, that's not worth all that much since you can convince yourself of almost anything when reading reviews, but I didn't really find that many positive words for the Flex 3 models (in any configuration). Now I've used Lenovo Thinkpads since they were IBMs and I've always been very pleased, but their corporate laptops are probably designed much differently than their consumer models.

I'm typing this comment from one of these. Purchased new from Microsoft Store with credit from the massive game trade ins. Solid laptop, can game pretty well. Get 60FPS on Starcraft 2 on High/Ultra. Ran some other games, handled everything. Had trouble with Ryse. MGSV runs great.

Tablet mode didn't effect performance at all since it doesn't detach from anything and the internals are that of any other laptop. Works good, great battery life.

I hear a lot of people have troubles with the wifi, I do not. I believe some may have lemon wifi cards or bad drivers. Many reviewers state the wifi issues are solved with other drivers.

I really like this laptop, but I got mine new with a warranty.

Huh, even refurb the one without the nvidia seems like a solid deal? I'd be using it for photo editing on the go - so don't need a graphics processor for that anyways and don't do much of any gaming

careful with buying refurbished from newegg. They really don't care about their refurbished products. Last time I bought a refurbished item, it was badly packaged in a box that was way bigger than the actual item and the item itself was cosmetically horrible. Also, the item failed after the (3) month warranty period they offer for refurbished products.

Man this is great specs, but since its refurbished I only buy from Lenovo outlet direct so I can get the full 1 year warranty.

Buyer beware: I have a Lenovo G580, core I5, etc. Problem is this: The wireless modem has problems, and it has been traced to the bios, which Lenovo will NOT address, communicate with owners about, or fix. In fact, one of their bios 'upgrades' tanks the machine. Look it up, google is your friend.

Used to be, you could buy from Newegg with confidence that they'd have your back.

Used to be.

Unfortunately.

Even worse. NewEgg Marketplace: "Sold and Shipped by: COMMERCESTAR", nothing to do with NewEgg themselves.

reviews are just plain scary on this laptop. Don't want to take risk.

They're not even the seller. But I have seen the difference.

Does this have IPS screen? Site review indicate it does but none of the merchants' spec indicates this is an IPS screen.

This deal was emailed to me yesterday by Newegg. Was considering it but took the Acer R14 deal instead. So many bad reviews on this model from hardware issues.
