great deal except that it is glossy screen. Light reflections are going to be so annoying! I wish it was anti-glare screen

Wouldn't one of these Dell Inspiron 15 laptops from Costco be a better deal for basically the same price?

They have a better Intel Core i5-1035G1 processor, 512gb SSD and a touchscreen.

Tradeoffs.
The Lenovo is almost 1 lbs lighter and the processor is significantly faster.
The Dells have bigger SSDs, they are touchscreens, but you have to have a Costco membership to buy it.

No, it's a quad-core.

That's a fair point. I didn't look at the weight of both laptops. A pound is a big weight difference. The Dell from Costco was on sale in February for $530. At that price point it would be a better deal assuming you're not going to be carrying it around all the time.

Deal breaker for me too! Made that mistake once, never again. I guess if you only use it at home in where you can control the glare it would be ok. If there is anybody out there who likes a glossy screen for some reason, perhaps you can share the reason?
