Hey folks

Here are the:

NVME speed: https://i.imgur.com/7avZ0aS.png
WIFI Speed (included 1x1 module, will be installing a 2x2 tomorrow): https://i.imgur.com/wYhqUe4.png


Upgradable: Ram, NVME SSD (They use a half height but you can install a full 2280)

There is a proper caddie for a 2.5 inch SSD (lower right hand corner). Installed my 1tb with no issues.

Let me know if you guys need anything else. The wifi card is also upgradable, they use a small chip but there is a full lane.

That has nothing to with Dual band. It has 1x1 antena compared to 2x2 which provides better reception. It supports Dual Band 802.11ac standard.
6 Helpful?
Yes, it is. It has a pretty powerful processor and the integrated Graphics is more than twice powerful than the HD 620 in Intel 8th Gen Processors. Ram is upgradable and at this price, 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD is literally not available in any laptops. Only downside is it has a TN panel display instead of IPS.

By far this is the cheapest price for this Laptop and in fact cheapest for any Ryzen second generation APU with SSD and Full HD Display. The Display on this is an Anti-Glare TN Panel, not IPS. But overall, this is a pretty solid deal.

No, the Touchscreen model is indeed an IPS panel.

Description here is wrong by OP. This isn't Touchscreen model so it has TN panel with FHD resolution.

Specs show 4MB Cache, not 6MB - does this make much difference?

I think it's 2 MB level 2 + 4 MB level 3 = 6 MB

Given the price, is it worth it even with the TN panel?

It is 6MB total as mentioned by the other person. Go to the below official product page and check under the spec section.
https://www.amd.com/en/products/a...en-5-3500u

AMD Ryzen architecture is different than Intel's cache architecture. Intel uses very small L2 Cache and mainly relies on high capacity L3 cache and that is the spec you see in all the Intel CPU spec. AMD Ryzen architecture on the other hand, relies on both L2 Cache and L3 cache capacity.
