4 year warranty if purchased with Costco Visa. If you are not a Costco member, you will need to figure in the cost of the membership.

Depends on what you're going for. If you're using this for high end gaming or multimedia then probably the 256g+1t. If you're using for an all-around computer, I'd pick the 512 ssd. If you want the fancy screen and can manage your storage between the two drives, go with that. If you want everything to work really well on the screen and not have to worry about splitting storage, the 512 is great.

Agreed.. I have i5-8550 8GB 128GB $500 deal from Microsoft and even with such small storage it runs like butter, just using mostly portable storage. But I use mine for basic office, no gaming. It handles wonderfully for such a compact machine. Just really depends on your needs.

Plus, remember the Flex 5 is upgradable with both RAM and SSD.

It's a beautiful screen on this laptop. And it has surprisingly good sound. The finger print sensor works pretty good too, at least better than the one on the P650 laptops by Clevo.

The graphics card can handle older games, but even a game like Hearthstone reduced to 1080P resolution there's noticeable stuttering. So definitely don't buy it for gaming. But it's a nice laptop.

I bought this last month same deal, it's a good computer for the price. I can't tell the difference between this and my old laptop with a 1080p search looking at 4K video and ScanSnap software doesn't render right on the laptop.otherwise I love the extra space and it seems solid

Can you comment on the active stylus? Is it useful? Any comparison to a surface pen?

I got stylus on two on my laptops(HP360 and Dell 5285 2 in 1) that i use for work. was excited in the beginning and used stylus on one of my laptop. There is nothing much exciting to do with it and you tend to forget you have a Stylus when using laptops, unless you want to attach stylus to the laptop. So not a fan of stylus.

4K display all the way, you could always add a bigger SSD later, but you can't upgrade the display. 1080p FHD is too old now in my opinion anyways.
