Nope, Lenovo website doesn't say anything about graphics.

Not the same exact machine but FWIW

I have an older version of this machine and it has been mediocre. The hinge has been problematic. But the biggest problem has been lack of support from Lenovo. The Flex 2 15 was plagued with a bug where it wouldn't come out of sleep if the machine had been on battery when it went into sleep and then the battery died. It was obviously something in the powersaving settings. But there was literally no response from lenovo on any of the dozens of support requests.

This was made worse by the fact that you couldn't take the battery out due to the "sealed" design. It was a 30-45min process to take the keyboard out, all 10 screws holding the board to the frame, and disconnecting the fragile battery connector to fix.

I love lenovo's business line of machines but have not had great luck with their consumer stuff. Reviews on their site look very mixed as well. 100/400 reviews being 3 stars and under.

No, on this machine they have a single dim slot that supports up to 1 16gb chip. They really don't want you opening this machine up, I assume thats why they did this.

Touch screen always seems like a useless gimic on a laptop unless you can detach the screen because to use touch you really need to have the surface in close imo.

I actually use mine a ton when I have the laptop flipped into tablet mode. It's especially useful on any of these 2-1s that have an active stylus. Writing on PDFs and PP slides for class notes is perfect this way.

When I use touch it's usually when my laptop in tent mode for example when I need to watch a LOL live stream while cooking.

In close? As I'm typing, my hands are close to the screen. I will sometimes use my fingers to move the screen up or down. Sometime I even touch a hyperlink using my fingers.

You have the Flex 2? Was that from 2014? I have last year's 2018 model - Flex 5 15.6" which looks similar to this model. I can remove the bottom panel (about 10 screws) then easily access the battery, RAM and SSD/HD.
