How do you get free shipping? I'm seeing $6.99 for shipping.

Edit: Also, this appears to charge using USB-C. Is that correct?

If so, and it has a free memory slot, I may be sold! Not sure about the graphics, though.

Will edit the shipping part. And read my post as I have mentioned clearly that it comes with Type-C charger. This has full 3.1 Type C implementation which supports 4k 60 hz display out, charging and data.
It has one free memory slot and I strongly recommend to add another 8 GB for dual channel which improves the performance by a good margin.
The GPU is integrated and it performs close to MX150 when used with dual channel memory.

Thanks for the information. I did read your post and you mentioned a "Type-C power adapter", but I wasn't sure if that meant USB-C.

USB-C is just a short form people use, that is not a correct term. The standard USB ports are called Type-A and this is called USB Type-C.

That is a slickdeal. Hopefully the backlit keyboard is an easy swap.

One thing I want to mention here is that this laptop and 15 inch E595 are one of the best implementation of Ryzen 3000 series APU. Lenovo has not throttled the CPU and also allows to reach 25W TDP for longer run, resulting best performance for 3500U and 3700U. Recent analysis suggested that it can run up to 58% faster than HP LAPTOPS with same CPU. In 495, it performs better than i7-8565U in Multi threaded benchmarks by 7 to 10% and when running at Dual channel memory, Vega 10 can reach very near to MX250 dedicated graphics.

The only problem with this deal is the possibility of dealing with TigerDirect if something goes wrong. Any recent experiences?

Seems like Tigerdirect is not very easy to deal with:

I was googling the model for reviews and it seems to be around the same price on Walmart.

And ebay (slightly more).

Also the reviews for these seem to put the build quality far below X1 Carbons. I know not the same price point but something to consider as part of the spec.

This is from third party vendors although urlhasbeenblocked seems like a reputable one. But TD for Tigerdirect.
