This is the same model and specs that was offered during Lenovo sneakpeek event with the same price.

Currently it's at $919 without the sneakpeek coupon

I failed to grab one of this model during the sneakpeek event since it ran out of stock so quickly. Cheers, hopefully I can grab one of this bad boy soon.

That model has a 1650 so a step down on the GPU.

I think that one says it has a GTX 1650 gpu though when you click on more info. Not quite the same then.

Edit: oops someone above me already said it sorry all!

As the above posters have noted, the huge difference in these two models is that the Microsoft Store one has a GTX 1650 and this one from Walmart has a GTX 1660ti, which is about 40-50% faster than the 1650.

Storage is easily upgradable, but GPUs are a different beast altogether.

To dig up something from a prior thread on this model:
Quote from xxaaqq
:
I'm pretty sure this is the 300 nits 72% NTSC version of the 60Hz screen.

Yeah - I started with the model #, it's 81SX00FFUS

I found the parts list: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/partslookup You need to copy/paste the model # as SlickDeals blocks the full URL!) Listed among the parts is LCD Panel NV156FHM-N61 and doing some digging, I found that's 72% NTSC [panelook.com] (and it lists the brightness as 300 cd/m² = 300 nits).

From Lenovo's screen option, I am reassured this will be the 300 nit option!
  • 15.6" FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS anti-glare 60Hz 45% color gamut 250 nits
  • 15.6" FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS anti-glare 60Hz 72% color gamut 300 nits
Not impossible the part numbers overlap and need an extra modifier to differentiate, but I'm going to be an optimist here.

I agree with you, and a little further info here:
Lenovo provides a gtx1650 version of Y540, which model number is 81SY0008US with a panel NV156FHM-N48, and it is exactly 45% NTSC+250nits.
Walmart should mention it clearlySmilie
There's the potential this Walmart model may have a better display than the Microsoft store version. I looked up the parts for that model, and it shows the NV156FHM-N48 panel referenced above as an equivalent replacement part.

Has a mini display port, so should be able to crank up on monitor. I just can't see gaming on that small of a screen, but this seems a very solid build for under $1000.

Per the panel specs, it looks to be be 60hz, like this one, but have lower nits and color gamut than this model.

This will likely play most games on high or very high at 1080p well. Unless you're moving up to the i7-9750h processor along with the RTX 2060, I don't think it's worth it personally. An i5-9300h with a 2060 seems kind of lopsided with the GPU outpowering the CPU and it's possible you might see games get CPU-limited due to it if you're wanting to play at maxed out settings.

I'd hope that $1200 also buys you the 144hz screen option too. Kind of a waste to not have it with that GPU.

The MS sales rep was telling me that theirs was a 144 Hz panel but I'm a little skeptical (see the attached chat log).

Oh, the sting; got this for $100 more a few months ago LMAO. When I game, it's stuff like Diablo III and StarCraft 2 (also played some Forest), which this handles with ease (full 80W 1660 Ti). Sometimes some mild fan noise, but very little heat radiates out. For web dev (Node, React, Python, Docker, MongoDB, VS Code) it's plenty. The screen is 300 nit and I like it just fine. You honestly don't think about if this is the 100% ultimate best panel in the middle of games, and it's not a washed out TN panel that actually makes you pause. If you play serious FPS games that work better on higher refresh rate panels, I get it. But for a lot of people, this is a nice deal. Really well built, subtle design, keyboard has really grown on me. And unlike the 6-core laptops, you probably will not be fighting bad thermals. The power brick is kind of silly big. Probably doesn't matter much unless you lug it around a lot. Wish I got it at $850... ha!
