i don't get the relationship between using a latest i7-8th gen U cpu and using an old 940MX laptop series average GPU at that price.....with Nvidia almost at the verge of releasing a new GPU, would anyone really want to own a laptop with an almost 2 gen old GPU?

How does it compare to the integrated Intel UHD 620 that comes on many laptops? I'm mainly impressed with this for the RAM, large SSD, 8th gen chip, and dvd (which I occasionally still need), but might think twice if the 940mx was worse than the 620.

well UHD 620 is definitely worse than 940mx, but I am skeptical on the decision of using an older architecture on a new laptop. 940mx is not a pure 1080p card, for a $800 laptop, i personally think that is a must feature. maybe GPU cost was used as an escape goat to offset the cost of the newer CPU.
this is my understanding so far. for reduced power draw there could ideally be 2 gpu choices. 940mx vs 1030 (performance increases moving right). 940mx has an average power draw of 25W compare to 30W for 1030. 1030 run more cooler than the 940mx. so with a 1030, a slightly more power draw the laptop could have had a 70% better performing GPU.

Great info, thanks. Do you know if this i7 cpu with the 940mx will cause the fan to run more than an i5 with the integrated graphics for non-gaming activities?

No way to know for sure. Too many variables here. Heatsink material, number of heatpipes, size of fan, TDP configuration of CPU, fan profile and target temperature, etc.
I'd just buy one and see if I like it. If not, MC is pretty generous with its return policy.

Anyone know if I can add a hard disk to this - is that SSD in the m.2?
