For me, if I'm going to get a 15.6" monitor I'd prefer having a 10-key numpad on the right of the keyboard. The RAM can be upgraded after purchase most times (not sure on this one) but I also put more value in 16GB of RAM than I do 512GB of storage. If I had to choose, I would rather see a 256GB SSD & a bump to 16GB RAM for the same price as storage isn't a priority for me. Other than those things this seems like a decent deal for anyone looking for the specs this has.

I agree with the 8 v. 16GB memory comment above, but I will say that the Flex series is really quite nice. My wife uses one, and it's been a solid system for awhile now with no issues, unlike the previous three laptops that she had (I finally stopped buying the bargain price ones).

Very good specs on this one though: Full HD IPS screen, touchscreen, decent CPU, 512GB storage

I wonder if this has an open RAM slot? I couldn't find anything in a cursory search, but that would be a big plus.

You can't compare a used laptop to new - common sense.

I edited my post above to avoid any possible confusion.


I too don't know if there's an open slot for a RAM upgrade or if it's soldered and my wording made it sound like you could upgrade which I don't know. If you can, this laptop with 16GB of RAM would be a solid performer especially at the price tag but, again, I'd prefer a smaller display or a numpad.


A 15" laptop/2-in-1 w/o a numpad is kind of an odd mixture and waste of real estate IMO. Especially with those size bezels and body. It's not like they're scrapping this to make an ultra thin form factor with the smallest possible bezels and a full-size keyboard just can't be fit with those dimensions.


There's plenty of real estate for a numpad and while some may not care there's a large portion of the population that prefers either 1) numpad or 2) much smaller/lighter form factor that sacrificed the numpad.

Deepends on the setup, 4 is soldered and the other 4 in one slot. Second setup 8 soldered and one free slot.

Personally I think the typical 15" with a numpad is a little cramped, but that is a whole lot of empty real estate. Makes the whole thing look kinda retro.
