Clearly states HDMI 1.4b in PSREF [lenovo.com]

Black Friday is not like what it used to be. That's for sure.

Why is this deal getting thumbed down? Am I missing something?

- Ryzen mobile cpu
- 1080p IPS display
- Supported device
- SSD instead of HDD
- 8GB of RAM

This ticks a lot of boxes. The closest deal to this are all i3 CPU. Which isn't bad but the Ryzen is like 85% close to the newer i5 chips with a better GPU. Even if it's single channel it's still a way better GPU.

If you're not really storing a ton of games at once and just need an all around good laptop that can play some occasional Fortnite I don't see the issue with this.

This is a much better deal than the last Best Buy Ryzen deal. I don't get all the shade...

My laptop currently has 128GB of storage and it's plenty. I've got photoshop, illustrator, MS Office, SPSS, Blender, Premier, a bunch of other apps, and a couple games on mine with another 15 Gb to spare.

This is better than the intel variant for consumer use, because it's got Vega 8, at least it will output to 4K HDR through the HDMI 2.0b

None of those Ghetto intel hd 620 gpus will do that, they all hit hdmi 1.4 only.


The Intel CPUs are alot faster, but quite useless for a budget laptop.

"This model is not user upgradable. A certified technician must do all of the work, so as to not void the warranty. The maximum RAM this system can support is 8GB, so it is not upgradable."

pass, sounds like 4 gb or even 8 gb soldered.

I think it's upgradeable to 12gb most 330s are. I could be wrong but the i5 versions for sure are.

I agree. I'm trying to convince myself not to buy this but it's pretty darn good plus a nice slim design.

This doesn't seem like a bad deal, but I think people are hoping cyber Monday brings something better

I just ordered one for store pick-up but won't pick it up until after I see the deals tomorrow. I do wish it had a larger SSD and backit keyboard, but it's still a decent deal for what it has.

Everything I've read the Intel i5 smokes this in real world use however the integrated gpu in the ryzen is where this adds value while the i5 integrated graphics has worst performance.
