It seems like it could be a good deal. It is definitely a top contender CPU, and for anyone who is concerned about the Intel vulnerabilities, this could be a real steal. Not many new laptops are using the new AMD processors.
I saw this review over at Techspot [techspot.com]which seemed to put the same CPU through it's paces in a HP laptop. Overall only the most expensive new Intel chips beat this chipset, except in Matlab calculations, which may be highly optimized for the Intel chipset.

The battery life is likely going to be the most disappointing part. The review of the Intel version [windowscentral.com] pegged it at 3 hours of streaming video tops. However, that version said it weighted 3.68 lbs ... so I'm not sure where the 1.48 lbs went. Are these specs accurate? EDIT - This laptop DOES weigh 3.68 lbs. The description above is inaccurate.

I don't know if you can upgrade the RAM or SSD in this guy. It sure would be nice if you could.

This laptop is comparable with the first one. However,as per various reviews, the Ryzen version does provide better battery life while providing similar performance, both in terms of Processor and Graphics. The Intel version you linked, does have dedicated MX130 which is a re-branded GT 940MX with 26W TDP and because of that, it consumes a bit more power, resulting poor battery life.
This AMD Version has integrated VEGA 8 Graphics, which provides more or less similar performance like MX130 but the whole CPU and GPU package has 15W TDP which will give you lower power consumption.

The Intel version you have linked, comes with a dedicated GPU as well, MX130 (rebranded GT 940MX).

3 hours of streaming on a 1080p resolution? Holy hell, that blows. Other than that though, it looks like quite the deal indeed.

You're still saving money. Also, you don't have to deal with shitty geeksquad if there's a problem.

I just ordered the ideapad 720S from an earlier SD deal. Is this better laptop? I want to use it just as laptop - don't care much about touch function.

You will still have Lenovo warranty unless I am missing something. Flex series is definitely below the Yoga series for consumer grade laptops.

Take it anywhere—even away from outlets
Measuring 3.5 lbs / 1.6 kg and .69" / 17.6 mm, the Flex 6 is portable enough to take anywhere, with up to 10 hours* of battery life. If you do need a little extra juice, 15 minutes of charging* will give two additional hours of use when your battery is dwindling.
OP,
3.5lb, not 2.2lb

I was literally looking at that Flex 6 13 from Costco yesterday lol, need a new Windows laptop for SQL... I'd say the only noteworthy difference is the i5-8250U + Nvidia MX130 vs Ryzen 5 2500U and Vega 8 GPU, but even then the answer's not so clear.

The CPU difference is very marginal, with only a slight edge to the Intel i5-8250U (linked):The GPU difference is hard to make a definitive conclusion on because the RX Vega 8 iGPU in the 2500U is heavily dependent on the cooling and dual-channel RAM setup it seems... According to this benchmark on Notebookcheck [notebookcheck.net], they got a 3D Mark 11 "Performance GPU" benchmark score on the same GPU chip with scores ranging as high as 3500 points on an HP Envy x360 and a 3450 score on an Acer Swift 3 with the Ryzen 2500U's Vega 8 iGPU. To further add to the complication, the HP Envy x360 had 16GB of RAM and the Acer Swift 3 they tested had only 8GB of RAM...

In that "best" case scenario, the Ryzen 2500U with RX Vega 8 is on par with the Nvidia MX150, and the one the Flex 6 you and I were both looking at Costco's website has an MX130 which would be a step down from the MX150. However, in that same Notebookcheck review the Lenovo Ideapad 720S with the exact same Ryzen 5 2500U Vega 8 iGPU scored only 1660 points on the 3D Mark 11 GPU benchmark, which baaarely edges out the Intel HD 620 integrated graphics...

Personally, I think I'm going to end up getting the Flex 6 from Costco with the i5-8250U and Nvidia MX130 for that additional ~$70 premium so I don't have to worry about what I'm getting as Nvidia GPU's don't have TDP issues that I'd have to worry about. If you want to do some digging on reviews of cooling and thermals on the Lenovo Flex 6 it definitely might be worth it to save that $70 because the bad review that I just showed above was on the Lenovo Ideapad 720S which I think is their thin-and-light line... If the thermals are any better than that Ideapad 720s that was reviewed, this Lenovo Flex 6 could be an extremely good buy.
