Yes, it is pretty good deal. Keep in mind that the Display is a TN Panel, not IPS. For Ram, 4GB is soldered and 4GB is user accessible which can be replaced with a 16GB module, with 20GB max capacity.

Do you know about AMD's Ryzen family CPUs? (Threadripper also?).
If you don't, do yourself a favor & research it! AMD Ryzen are finally AMD CPUs that are competitive in performance with Intel CPUs, in personal computers. (After many years, they are a viable option/alternative again. Often lower cost than their Intel equivalent/corresponding CPU model.).
For convenience & existing familiarity, the Ryzen CPUs use similar type of CPU model full name/#/ID/scheme/format as Intel Core series/family. So Ryzen 5 corresponds to an Intel Core 5 (rest of model name is close/similar, like 5 3500U, 1st # is model series generation, U suffix for lower TDP (made mainly for mobile use with fan) (AMD Ryzen uses mostly same alpha/letter suffixes as Intel, plus a few specific to Ryzen)). So if you know Intel Core CPU model scheme, then very close to same with AMD Ryzen, & CPU abilities & performance will be similar.

(Your post sounded knowledgeable about the integrated GPUs with CPUs. Then there was the question about Ryzen.).

That is equivalent to Core i5. And VEGA 8 on this Ryzen 5 3500U is never on par with MX150, it is more or less equivalent to a MX130 which is a re-badge GT 940MX, provided dual channel memory and proper cooling. But still, it can be twice faster than Intel's UHD 620.

This is a good deal ( at least equivalent ) to the frontpage Intel version. - quad core to quad core. 3.7 GHZ amd to 4.7 GHZ intel boosted, but the latest vulnerabilities in Intel make it closer. Vega 8 > 620 GPU

The outbreak of Numpads on 14" laptops and above is driving me crazy. Offset typing and offset track pad for a non offset screen. Am I taking crazy pills?

People should be aware that the battery life is pretty different. Intel still has better battery handling but at this point, that's about it in this price range.

The title on the product page includes Vega 8. (Better than Intel HD 620 and less powerful than the MX150, while being well behind the Geforce 1050.)

Unrelated - what the crap is a Ryzen 5?

The biggest problem with most Ryzen laptops is that they are shoved into chassis made for Intel systems without any consideration for cooling. This seems like one of those machines.

So much junk Lenovo spam on this site. Bad company that would happily install man in the middle software or other malicious junkware without hesitation. One of the worst offenders. Do not support this terrible company.
Lol, love this guy at every Lenovo post... pretty good PC at this pricepoint. I'd bite for a nondemanding user.
