This was $529 last week with Student Deals (which anyone qualifies for). Not a huge fan of the screen brightness and for some reason, mine seems to be benchmarking in all tests lower than my Huawei Matebook D w/ Ryzen 5 2500u. Not sure what the problem could be.
That was a completely different laptop smh. This deal is a full model higher processor upgrade and full model higher video card upgrade. Sorry. I have a huge gripe with misinformation like that, especially so early in a thread.

Anyone know the difference between the Spectre and the Envy series? Build quality?

Spectre > Envy > Pavilion. Price increases accordingly.

I've owned a lot of Pavilion stuff and only one laptop disappointed me. Therefore, my current personal standard is no lower than Envy for laptops (I own 2) and Pavilion is fine for desktops and monitors. Envy, Omen, and Spectre builds still represent excellent values but are definitely more high-end, niche needs.

Does anyone know if these ryzen builds leave a place for an extra ssd? I read somewhere that only the Intel x360 builds have room to add one.

You may look at the thread I linked to for 5 series for that info.

Lord have mercy, if this was 13.3" my CC info would be in that buy page in a heart beat. Honestly even at this screen size I believe I am sold. A ryzen 7 with vega 10 GPU I can game and do work without a problem with this. I believe I will be pulling the trigger. A few open boxed certified around me but none near the $519 price which I would not want anyway cause of cosmetic issues. If I can get a certified one down to normal open box excellent pricing I will be purchasing it, going to drop by the store and talk to an associate.

I was able to hold off, the soldered 4GB module people reported is a pass for me, AMD architecture benefits greatly from memory running in dual channel so to have 2x8gb is going to be more beneficial than 1x4gb and 1x8gb/1x16gb. If I am wrong let me know, but I believe that carried over to Ryzen from previous chips.

One guy already let you have it, so I wont go there, but will confirm that he is correct. The one from last week cant hold a candle to this one, the Vega 10 is very rare but a capable gaming on board card, so this laptop is well worth it over last week deal you posted.

I stand corrected. Only real difference is the GPU though. Vega 10 is more capable than the Vega 8 for sure, but the CPU is essentially no faster than its Ryzen 5 counterpart. The rest of the laptop seems to be the same though, and I am having an issue with the Wifi card in it (Realtek) and the screen brightness. I have installed an EX920 1TB SSD and the laptop seems to have a latency issue also. Perhaps this version isn't having similar issues. Obviously I glossed over the Ryzen 7 callout here, but they are almost identical.

I purchased the Spectre last week and after a few days of having failed updates and lag issues I decide it was not worth my time and money. This is half the price and has been on my radar since, I have an older envy that has been solid for years and this is replacing it. Thanks OP.

I've seen a similar thing on someone youtube were the ryzen 3500u was benchmarking lower than the 2500u. Try to do some checks like, is the CPU thermal throttling? Or because the ram is the bottleneck? Many factors affect a benchmark.
