Friendly reminder: I'm following latest Renoir laptops for myself cos i wanna buy one too. I'm waiting for them for a long time now. When ever I post a new Renoir version laptop it goes oos pretty quick. Small businesses are buying this laptops bulk. So there's a pretty good chance this will be gone very soon too.

Friendly reminder 2: I highly recommend you to buy three years extra warranty for $58. Since ram is soldered, any hardware issue might cost a lot excluding SSD.

I think soldered ram is one of the stupidest ideas for a laptop. It gets damaged pretty easily by static, surges and few other factors and whenever that happens the only option is to replace the entire whole motherboard, I sure hope they refurbish them otherwise it's too much electronic waste just because of few chips.
why not just get 15% from that cashback site?

***I am a little reserved about buying from lenovo again, since my legion y740 needs a mobo replacement in less than a year. I mean I noticed there were signs of something wrong 5 months in, but I decided that it was minor. I ended up sending it back to lenovo because I just want it check out, lenovo still has my laptop for about 2 months now and its really hard to get an update from them.
As first poster mentioned warranty won't matter much if they take weeks or months to fix it. The inconvenience of not having a laptop which you require for more than few days would change my view of warranty. Then there's a question of how often the product malfunctions as well, some of my customers complained that with HP and few others they waited on a working laptop longer than they used it because it's either wasn't fixed properly or they were send something different in return. I would say the best warranty is when it doesn't break or if it does it can be fixed in few days by either technician at the house (like Dell had option) or by taking it to nearby repair dealer.

You can get 15% cash back from discounted price.
Also Students & Teachers, and Military Members can get extra discount using id.me
You might get a better price from your employee perks program too. I didn't add this to post because not everyone has access to it but taking the price down even further is possible.

You are right but don't forget parts are under warranty for one year. Three year extra warranty is $58.65 which is not bad.

8 cores and 16gb ram should be enough for light gaming. If you don't like it simply return it and get another one. IdeaPad slim 7 AMD version is coming on May 11-16

You are right but don't forget every warranty is a mutual agreement between you and the company. And it's terms are pretty clear. They won't fix your laptop free of charge if you spill water on it for example. Also repair times are written in warranty too. Pro tip: some big retailers can fix Lenovo laptops in house under warranty for example microcenter. You can always ask for an exchange or refund or solution legally. Worse case scenario you can get your money back via small claims court. Having a warranty is like a backup plan and is a good thing for customer.

Yes Legion 5 (15") AMD [lenovo.com] is available for order but I won't recommend it.

Looks like a solid laptop, but I'm leaning towards waiting for a 4800u laptop. Besides better multi threaded performance, the 4800u also has better graphics performance due to the higher clock (1.75 vs 1.6ghz), and more shader units.
