This seems slick with the 256 gb, 1080p, and backlit.

Someone confirm for me

Stupid question......

Why is Intel 620 and AMD R5 both listed for graphics? Does it use both?

Very tempted by this. However the GPU selection is weird... seems the integrated graphics (Intel HD 620) on that CPU would be superior (or at least a wash) to the dedicated GPU they selected.

Link to notebookcheck GPU benchmarks (if SD doesn't filter it):

Anyone else have thoughts?

While I don't have as much computer knowledge as I probably should, I would think that a dedicated card will provide better overall performance since it is not eating into memory or processing resources. The trade-off is battery life.

The integrated GPU uses less power so it'll default to that until you run something demanding enough for the discreet GPU to kick in

Edit: looks like you already answered your own question!

The i5 CPU has the Intel 620 built into it, hence the term "integrated". Some laptops, like this one, come with an extra GPU for when you might need it. For normal use, the laptop will only use the integrated GPU to save power.

I've been waiting for something similar. As the 1st poster state - good deal?

I've had experience with the Yoga. As far as I know, Flex is supposed to be like the consumer version of Yoga? Would there be much tradeoff in the build quality?

Thanks in advance.

Because it uses switchable Graphics. When you are doing less demanding work, HD 620 will be in use but when you turn a demanding application on, like some games or Photoshop, the dedicated card will be kicked in to give you better performance. Overall, this will conserve power and give you better battery life.

Yes you are correct. Flex 4 series has decent build quality and performance and battery life as well. This is hell of a deal because there is no Laptop, in fact, forget about 2-in-1, with similar configuration and price.
Don't expect anything for gaming. The integrated graphics is very slightly better than Integrated Graphics, because of having 2GB dedicated Graphics memory. It will give you some boost n GPU accelerated applications like Photoshop, OpenCL and Editing software.

Been looking for a decent daily driver. Picked one up for around $530 with taxes. Not too bad.
