Lenovo offers their all new Thin & Light Ideadpad 15S 15 Laptop (81CR0005US) with 15.6" 4K IPS Touchscreen Display, Core i7-7700HQ CPU, 16GB DDR4L 2400 MHz Ram, GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Gdraphics, 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD, Thunderbolt 3, Windows 10 Home 64 Bit @ $1402 with coupon code EXTRA8 + $70 SlickDeals Rebate [formstack.com] (Via PayPal). Shipping is free and tax in most states.

This Laptop is a perfect and slightly cheaper alternative of XPS 15. It may not have that big battery life but packs higher capacity SSD and more powerful Graphics card GTX 1050 Ti. Another thing is that it comes with 4X PCIe Lane Thunderbolt 3 Port compared to Dell's 2X PCIe Lane. This actually weights less than XPS 15 with 4K Touch Display.

Trying to decide if this or the Dell XPS 15 that Microcenter has (http://www.microcenter.com/produc..._-_Silver) . Nice thing about XPS is you can upgrade the Ram.

Because that is a Gaming Laptop whereas this is a Thin and Light work laptop with very powerful specs, similar to Dell XPS 15 series or Asus ZenBook pro 15 series.

For example, you can get a Dell Inspiron 7000 Gaming laptop with GTX 1060 below 1K now whereas XPS 15 with similar configuration and GTX 1050 graphics will cost you more than $400.

These kind of laptops (Asus Zenbook pro, Dell XPS 15, Lenovo Ideapad 720S) series are developed for productivity and portability in mind, not for gaming. They provide very high build quality, higher capacity battery, better color accurate screen, very powerful CPU, Ram and SSD and medium Graphics which will let you throw any kind of demanding productivity applications to it like Video Editing and encoding, Content Creation, running simulations etc, but does not sacrifice the portability and battery life. Hope, you understand the difference now.

Obligatory no 7th gen processor.
Are you kidding or you have no knowledge of current hardware, just trying to thread crapping? You are not even aware that Intel has not even released 8th Generation HQ series 45W TDP Processors yet, only U series low powered 15W Processors are available.

And this 7700HQ processor performs better than any of the released 8th Generation Processors, whether it is i5-8250U or i7-8550U, especially in long running CPU intensive applications as due to the 45W TDP limit, it can maintain its higher Turbo Clock speed for longer duration whereas the 15W 8th Gen Processors start thermal throttling after some time.

If you are not going to require more than 16GB Ram, I would suggest this one because it has:-
  • More Powerful Graphics card (more than 30%)
  • Twice the SSD Capacity
  • 4x PCIe lanes for the Thunderbolt 3 Port vs 2x in Dell.

Yes, it can power 2x 4ZK Display at 60 Hz. But you need a TB 3 dock for that.

There is no review out yet but it will be probably similar to Yoga 720 15 4K display. In that case, it will be not as good as XPS 15 4K but not very behind as well.

Just curious, how is this a better deal than dell xps 15:
http://www.dell.com/en-us/member/...cwxb1608v2

I understand the 1TB vs 512GB, and 4k vs 1080p screen on this one but 97 WHr vs 79 WHr battery and $1235 vs $1520 on XPS.

GTX 1050 vs GTX 1050 Ti on this. And the comparison you are doing is not correct. Upgrade the Dell XPS to 4K and you will end up paying $392 extra.

I recently purchased XPS 15 similar specs from Dell outlet around $1450 after 9% tax. But honestly the GTX 1050 is quite loud and I can hear the slight sizzling sound from laptop's inside somewhere. Considering return the XPS 15 and try this one.

My current laptop is 2017 MBP 13. I don't find XPS 15 4k screen is better than MBP's 2k screen though.

Any one knew about Lenovo's return policy? Do they charge restocking fee or anything?
