Ram is soldered tight to give a middle finger to customers who would potentially want to upgrade down the line.
That or if that RAM goes bad then you have to replace the board..
Curiosity why they would solder one of the RAM slots?

Trying to find a manual showing upgrade access, Lenovo's website wants serial number so...figured out must click on "change product" to be able to enter the model number 81WC0014US.
Here is the link to the hardware manual:

Access seems much simpler than HP's I've had. Remove the bottom and you have access to many upgradeable items. Be aware a stick of 4GB RAM is soldered on.

I have been going to www.crucial.com for any possible upgrade abilities.

Good luck mate.

Good deal if you need a laptop for light work. RAM is upgradeable and I think there's a HDD bracket included so you can put in an extra HDD for storage. Main downside would likely be the lower all-plastic build quality. I wasn't able to find info on contrast and color gamut for the display but my experience with Ideapad 3 series is the screen is likely around 45% NTSC, which isn't that great. At least it's bright enough.
For those that care about the camera, it's only 0.3MP, which is not even 720p. Just for reference, 1280x720 is about 0.9MP.

1.6GHz that's slow
It has a range of 1.6 up to 4.2 GHz as it has indicated on the specifications details on their retail store website.

42Wh lithium-ion battery, such a small battery for a 17" screen, can the battery replaceable with higher capacity?

It's a two factor thing. Ram being soldered makes upgrading impossible, while also making it more sturdy for being moved around a ton. Ram *can* snap out of springloaded slots if a laptop is handled roughly, though it usually doesn't.
