I've been having a terrible time finding laptops with 16GB of RAM lately, and this seemed like a decent deal. Note that the laptop is very configurable: you have several different options for processor, RAM, display, storage, keyboard, and even laptop colors. (The price above reflects a machine I'd actually want to buy, but you can lower the price by downgrading the processor, RAM, and/or screen if you wish.)

Here are the details of what was spec'd above:
  • Color: Black (6 other color options are available for +$10-$15)
  • Windows 10 Home 64
  • AMD Ryzen™ 5 3500U (2.1 GHz, up to 3.7GHz, 6 MB cache, 4 cores)+AMD Radeon™ Vega 8 Graphics
  • 16 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM (2x8GB)
  • 15.6" diagonal FHD SVA anti-glare WLED-backlit (1920 x 1080)
  • 256 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD (1 TB 5400 RPM HDs + SSD options are also available as upgrades)
  • Standard Keyboard (NOTE: a backlit keyboard is available for +$30 if you first select a premium laptop color for +$10-$15)
  • 802.11b/g/n/ac (1x1) Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® 4.2 combo

SSD on this should be this one [hp.com] - matches specs as per the service manual [hp.com] (pg. 88). If so, basically an OEM 960 EVO.

Question from the technically illiterate mom here... would these specs work as a gaming laptop? I want to get one for my son and was thinking about waiting for Prime Day. But if this would work I might go ahead and grab it eatly.
No, it will not work as a dedicated gaming laptop. You need to spend around $600 to $650 to get a decent gaming laptop which can run the latest games at decent settings.

they use samsung SSD, but if you get the 128GB it's just SATA and not NVME. I just cracked my Envy 15 open with the m.2 SATA 128GB SSD.

Looking for the cheapest 15 inch laptop that can be charged via USB C with a high quality screen. Those are the specs that really matter to me. Any help?
15 inch laptops that (primarily) charge via USB-C are rare and often expensive. Cheapest I could find was a HP Probook 450 G6 but the screen on that is garbage. Best bet would be a Dell XPS 15" or a Samsung Notebook 9 15". And those go from $800 and up.

There are a lot of cheap and viable options if you move down to a 14" laptop though. I use a Matebook D (Ryzen version) and it has everything you want and more aside from that extra inch.

In this intel deal, the upgrade the RAm from 12GB to 16GB for $50 + wifi 2x2 for $30. Here is only $30 for RAM and $10 for wifi 2x2. Also, would you rather use Intel 620 instead of the vega 8? That deal is much worse for Intel fans.
Could you elaborate? The 8550u from the Intel computer specs out better than the AMD chip, what makes you say it's a bad deal? The machines appear very similar otherwise *besides the Vega 8. But I suppose that depends on your purposes.

This or the lenovo deal? https://slickdeals.net/f/13142257-lenovo-flex-14-2-in-1-1080p-ips-touch-i5-8265u-16gb-ddr4-256gb-pcie-ssd-win10h-598-49-f-s?v=1&src=SiteSearch

After student discount, it ends up being cheaper. Any reason to pick this HP over the lenovo? Thanks in advance!

if you pick the same specs, the Intel 8550U price is much higher.

Intel® Core™ i7-8550U | 12 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM (1 x 4 GB, 1 x 8 GB) | 15.6" diagonal FHD SVA anti-glare WLED-backlit (1920 x 1080) | 256 GB M.2 SSD | 802.11b/g/n (1x1) Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® 4.2 combo
This specs is $670, if you want 16GB of RAM and wifi 2x2, so + $80 more = $750
So the AMD 3500U with the same specs above is only $520, and with wifi 2x2 + 16GB of RAM is $560. Will you pay $100-$150 different for that?
Also with 3% lower than 8550U in CPU mark [cpubenchmark.net], and 69% higer in GPU [userbenchmark.com], the AMD chip is the winner.

"Full-size island-style backlit keyboard" option becomes available for +$30.

Can anyone explain what this is? How is island-style different?
Looks like this [ytimg.com].

Really want to bite on this, but, the weight (4.6lbs) seems too bulky for me...
