Why you need to swap them out? It has a spare M.2 slot and an one empty Ram slot. So, you can just add another M.2 PCIe SSD and another Ram stick.

You really dont need to upgrade the ram either. 8 GBs is more than fine for 99% of games out there.

Unless you're editing pixar movies with 1000s of frames to render, you don't need 32gb of ram like most Slickdealers seem to believe. You will literally never use the 8gb if you just play games, browse the web and edit documents, like 99% of people .

How does the AMD RX 560 graphics card compare with the NVIDIA GTX 1050 or NVIDIA GTX 1050ti?

And what is the build quality on this laptop (hinge, lid flex,etc.)?

The build quality is pretty decent and there is no hinge problem reported. The GPU is similar to GTX 1050.

Decent. But for a gaming computer, you'd want to swap out the RAM and HDD immediately.

Anyone know if the open m.2 slot comes with the hold down screw.

This includes the controversial RX 560. Hope if ain't the nerfed up version

Build quality is very good, as for the comparison just slightly better than a 1050 but not as good as the 1050ti.

The 5400 rpm hard drive is killing this deal for me. It means you must add at least $50 to $140 for a m.2 NVME SSD. The price then becomes more than the frequent Dell Inspiron 15 7000 1050ti deals that go for around $650-$699 and include a decent 256GB m.2 NVME drive along with slightly better gaming video.

That includes a 256GB SATA III M.2 Drive, not an NVMe. NVMe comes with the model where you see 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD.

However, if you can spend the money, go for it. That is actually better option if you can spend the extra money. more powerful GPU, SSD, very high capacity battery.
