specs and price are pretty good, though, like other lenovo laptops in this range, 250 nits for the display if that's important.

Never understood why so many manufactures go with low nit screens outside of microsoft and apple and the xps series for dell. Is it really that much more expensive to use a bright display?

Nits = brightness of the screen. It only matters if you read or work off of your laptop a lot. Most business oriented machines tend to haver lower brightness as most of them are connected to external monitors and only occassionally used as a laptop. But given how many people use laptops w/o monitors, this is an important factor.

The top tier is 500 nits. Think Dell XPS, Lenovo ThinkPad X1 carbon, Surface Laptop, Macbook Pros.

I would say above 400 nits is more than enough for most people. If you are doing creative stuff (as in for your job, not just for fun), you probably need the full 500 nits and also look at color reproduction accuracy.

In terms of finding out how many nits this has, I just googled this model and found its info on Lenovo. Usually the manufacturer's site has pretty detailed info as compared to retailer's (like costco)

G'luck!

According to the "Specifications" tab on this page [lenovo.com] the 16GB is soldered on; there are no slots. Frown
