Seems like a bit much when the ASUS with almost the same specs is still available for $550. For the extra $150 you're basically adding a 2GB 940MX, a faster NVMe SSD and an additional 10 WHr of battery.

Not really. Flex 5 14 is a better allrounder as per various reviews, especially in Notebookcheck. Also, you are getting the Stylus pen, which costs around $30. And believe me or not, dedicated GPU increases the price by a good amount. Also, with the dedicated GPU, the weight is almost similar to the Asus 2-in-1.

That is a pretty solid deal and well worth the extra amount.

Ya they've sold 150 grand worth in 24 hours. Newegg just listed it on their site today for $999. I think that's the best price it's going to be for a while MSRP is $1099.

I don't game much or really any these days but I do edit photos and videos. Not sure how this would do.

Jumping from 940MX to 1050 will not give you as much boost in Photo & Video Editing as it will give in gaming. However, if you do serious editing work, look for a Laptop with HQ or H series Quad or Hexa-Core CPU and MX150/ GTX 1050 Graphics. Example i7-7700HQ or new i5-8300H or i7-8750H (6 Core). the 8th generation U series processors (i5-8250U, i7-8550U), although are Quad Core in nature, are 15W TDP which severely limit the CPU's capability to run at higher clock speed for longer period. On the other hand, 8th generation H series or even the 7th generation HQ series 45W TDP CPUs will not have that limitation.

Thanks for the perspective. I was leaning toward the 15w varieties for battery life. 90% of what I do is editing photos and web browsing. Just a little video editing.
But portability is my big driver. Current laptop is 6.5 lbs... Lol

Can you use Microsoft Ink or any other drawing app on this one?

For your intended use and desire for smaller/lighter, the Huawei MateBook D14 is pretty awesome and only $630 after taxes. You can check it out in person at most Walmart stores as it's their exclusive. Complete hidden gem for editing and light gaming as it actually performs on par with the mx150 (faster than the 940mx).

Ryzen 2500u/2700u tend to edge out their intel counterparts (8250u/8550u) in smaller chassis laptops during truly multi-threaded tasks such as editing thanks to their surprisingly strong implementation of SMT and superior power and consequently thermal characteristics - less throttling during sustained loads.

Yes, it is. I just looked at one in person at Walmart Smilie

If you do get one, price match their own website as it's $599 rather than the in-store price of $630.
