...except the bestbuy one has a MUCH weaker CPU, horrible screen, no USB-C, and half the ram/hdd. Definitely worth $120 more for all those things.
12GB is maximum. It has one 4GB Soldered in the motherboard and another slot where you can put another 8GB. Currently that slot has 4GB Ram.

So close to pulling the trigger. Looking for a desktop replacement that I can plug into a USB-C dock... but they cut corners in the oddest places with this model... the LAN port is only 10/100 and not gigabit! Also 8GB is the max RAM since there's only one slot.

Ahh, gotcha. Thanks. Still so weird that it doesn't have gigabit ethernet.

The marketing and pictures make it sound so thin. 1.1" good grief. And such a tiny battery for being so thick...

I would not worry so much about it. Throw in a lan adapter or something if you so need. Also 8Gb is more than enough unless you are video editing (and that's not what you would do on a laptop with an i5. Not trying to say you're wrong but just that I think this PC has enough good things going for it
