Has anyone ever tested the usb-c speed on these?
Even the spec page is confusing:
https://support.hp.com/ca-en/document/c06057196

Quote :
1 USB 3.1 Type-C™ Gen 2 (Data Transfer up to 5 Gb/s, Power Delivery, DisplayPort™ 1.4, HP Sleep and Charge); 2 USB 3.1 Gen 1 (1 HP Sleep and Charge); 1 HDMI 2.0; 1 headphone/microphone combo
Gen 2 is supposed to be 10 gbps. I believe that you need the equivalent of a nvme drive in a special enclosure to even get above gen 1 speeds (5 gpbs). One of the newer external ssd such as this sandisk will also get the higher speed.

I bought a similar intel powered Asus that was on sale last week for the same price
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus...Id=6292312

I'm having trouble deciding which is the better machine. The asus has room for a 2.5 inch drive plus an nvme slot. It doesn't have usb-c charging unfortunately. The usb-c is also limited to 5 gbps (gen 1). Memory is also soldered on.

The wacom pens are also on sale today $35. The best buy guy I spoke with said these very rarely go on sale for such a steep discount.

It's definitely worth the purchase. You can take hand written notes in onenote with this.

To me, open box is really the deal. I guess I will order it and return if there is any problem.
Yeah agreed. I ordered an open box fair condition just now. Figured we have 14 days to look and test thoroughly before committing

I bought this exact model back in September and ended up exchanging it twice. Heat issues, constant fan noise and the worst issue I experienced on all three laptops was the top inch or two of the screen had poor touchscreen performance. Not just with finger touch issues but with an active stylus. Really wanted to like this laptop. Has all the features I wanted, nice build quality and the perfect size. Too bad the issues were consistent with all the laptops I exchanged for.

AMD. what else is new? ))
I hate to join the hate train but this needs to be addressed: running hot does not depend on the cpu brand. I think R5 2500u and intel counterpart i5 8250u have the same exact TDP of 15 watts, so given the same cooling solution they should run similarly hot. I have seen some reviews of the same laptop model (amd vs intel), both had very similar battery life and with some basic tasks like streaming, amd was found to have slightly better temps and battery life albeit due to more efficient igpu. So if you buy an FX9790 or i9-7960X it will run hot!

I picked this one up last night from my local Microcenter for the same price as the HP lappy in this thread: https://www.microcenter.com/produ...r---silver

Main complaints thus far with my new Acer are the display (poor text contrast and viewing angles,even though it's an IPS panel), the keyboard (not as good as the one on my sis's Dell 5570, weirdness with the 10-key on my Acer). But aside from those, my Acer smokes this HP in every other way.

EDIT: I should add... no heat or wifi issues with my new Acer. My new Acer fits comfortably on my lap (but no DVD drive, it adds weight). RAM on my Acer is upgradable to 32GB on my Acer (two slots, 32GB max). I'm running with the 8GB stick it shipped with plus a 4GB Crucial stick I got for the Costco HP 299.99 Black Friday laptop that I returned back in Feburuary. Not sure if I'm getting DDR or not since the sticks are different sizes and different manufacturers.

Wanted to add that I have this laptop and there was heat issues but after the firmware update around Feb 2019, my laptop runs fine and the fans stop going crazy during youtube. Runs really well and I'm really happy with the value and performance. Able to quest and level in World of Warcraft in a pinch with 40 ish fps. I had to download firmware from AMD. Also battery life isn't as good as advertised, I probably just get 5 hours of normal use. It also works thru USB c charging.
Where did the firmware updates come from? All from AMD, or also available from HP?
Was the firmware update to the BIOS, or to the CPU?

Just trying to clarify from where the updates with the fixes are available. Thanks.
Thanks for info that updates fixed the cooling fan issues.

BIOS updates come from HP product page.

What are you talking about? It is clearly stated that SSD on it js PCIe not Sata. It is also confirmed that RAM is soldered and non-upgradable.
Do you have this laptop? Im guessing you dont. The SSD is a sata M.2 drive. The connector on the mobo is not. And it has two channels for RAM. Its not soldered in. The Intel version is soldered in.

Also, im having problems with HP customer service. They wanted me to pay $15+ tax to RMA. 4 reps over the phone refused to do anything and hung up on me. Rep on chat did waive the $15 fee and gave me an extra yr of warranty so there is that. Avoid CS over the phone.

my experience with older AMD laptops someone else bought. all eventually developed overheating problems. their intel laptops were good. i only get my hands on intel based older models. no overheating problems. i'd like to try AMD now. if it's only R5 2500u i'll look for something better. is R7 better? i don't remember top amd model without googling.

Look into the specs. It clearly states PCIe. Also, several reviewers confirmed that RAM is not upgradable.

You claim otherwise, can you post a pic of the motherboard to prove your statement?

You can't compare the two really. If someone is looking at this laptop they probably like the touch screen, convertible, <3lb weight, etc.

And M.2 drives are compatible with PCIe but at a max speed of sata 3 speeds. This 128gb unit is an M.2 ssd, not an mvne SSD like the 256gb version.
Mvne is different altogether and even then, speeds vary on manufacturer.
I cant open the laptop now as I'm getting it ready to RMA due to the screen:

Linked are the specifications from HP's website. Also, laptop manual says "On-board system memory, non-customer-accessible/non-upgradable". Website definitely states PCIe MVNE M.2 SSD. If I crack open to upgrade SSD to 500GB, will that void the warranty? Also, any recommendation for a 500GM MVNE SSD?

Lastly, link to laptop manual is below:
