Looks like the R7 4700U (8c/8t) variant of the recent Flex 5 deal. Should have the same chassis and package, except more storage and better CPU. Probably not the greatest "deal" but worth posting with the hot demand of Ryzen 4000 laptops.
A 512gb ssd is worth roughly $50, and 2 cores is like $50-60, so this makes sense for the people who really need the extra performance in a 2 in 1 form factor.

Would this be better than the lenovo flex 5 2-in-1 deal at amazon?
I paid about $770 for the amazon one with warranty, but i can get free 4-year warranty at costco.

It has a bigger SSD and slightly better processor, if that's important to you. Smilie

If you're not looking for a 2 in 1, there'll probably be better priced alternatives soon. And yes, that 250 nit display is the same as the OfficeDepot/Amazon versions, but I haven't seen any better on the Ryzen 4000 2 in 1s.

I don't need it RIGHT NOW and with the way these deals have been coming out every few days I don't mind waiting a few months for them to drop. I'm thinking by holiday season there will be some great deals if these are the mid season eh deals.

How is the screen, my flex 4's screen is pretty dim. Plus an insane position of shift key.

Good deal if you don't mind 250 nits, I'm currently searching for 300+ nits screen. Looks like I will have to wait for the HP envy x360 15 touch with 400 nits screen to go on sale.

Any chance of that happening soon?

Dell inspiron 7000 2-in-1. 220 nits typical, 300 nits max. Not too long ago, there was a 10% Rakuten cashback, which brought down the price to about $617 for the Ryzen 4500U version.
