Just saw this laptop in the Oct Costco book. Lenovo Flex 15.6 / -7-8550u / 4K UHD 2 in 1 / 16G / 512G / 2G MX130 GeForce

1199.99 less 200 = 999.99

Q: Is this a decent price or will / are there better deals around?

I would've much preferred if they took the 200 off of the 1080p version which would've made that one 799. I've been looking at the Flex, XPS, and ENVY series. All have their pros and cons. I am very partial to Costco for their no hassle return policy - simply walk into any warehouse and return.

Late Add: Forgot to mention free ship to warehouse pickup, 2% back for executive members and 2% back with the Costco Citi Visa.

Thanks - billyCeeeee

This has the low-wattage, quad core processor by the way.
Intel® Core™ i7-8550U, and
16GB DDR4 (1-DIMM) 2400MHz RAM

Also the backlit keyboard, fingerprint scanner, and crisp display make this a nice laptop for every day usage

If you want the 15.6" size and better graphics this is a good deal. Personally I wanted the smaller size Ultrabook XPS 13 with same CPU, 16gb ram, 512 GB SSD refurbished by Dell with 1 year warranty for $999 with free shipping and no taxes from the NewEgg flash deal. The small size and great performance of the XPS 13 Is perfect for me.

My Lenovo Ideapad 710s has way too much fan noise compared to my XPS and can be annoying to use. Hopefully this Lenovo will have better fan management.

I was also looking at the XPS 13 and 15. It was definitely a tough choice but decided to look at the 15s. I'm moving up from an old XPS14 i5 8g/256g. Still love the old unit, but it has been chugging lately. (Running Win7 Pro).

Additional bonus is free ship to warehouse pickup, 2% back for executive members and 2% back with the Costco Citi Visa. I think I'll pull the trigger on this. Thanks,

should check out the new dell inspiron 7000 series that is releasing on October 2nd if you're in the market at this price range, They look really sleek from the press conference videos.
