Ram is not upgradeable as far as I can tell. I don't know for sure. 8gb of shared memory is not enough. Also the screen has a very low 62% color gamut and only 251 nits brightness.
All I want is a 4600U/4800U with expandable memory, IPS 300 nit 80% gamut display, 512gb SSD.

Yep, he sure did! https://youtu.be/xDmRpcQQPUo

The only thing that's a real downer to me is the RAM. I had purchased the flex that came up recently but would rather have something thinner, lighter, and with better cpu/gpu and sacrifice the RAM, so I cancelled that and got this. I wish we didn't have to sacrifice it though.

This is a nice budget laptop for school and daily tasks. Gotta sacrifice something for the affordable price.

yeah, that's very unfortunate. laptops should always have at least 1 slot open, if not 2. in this case if you had 1 open you can only go up to 16gb if you want to stay in dual channel mode. having 2 slots will let you go to 24gb. i tend to keep laptops for a long time so i want it to be more future proof.
