No integrated ethernet port. Most laptops nowadays don't have one anyway. You can always get a USB to ethernet adapter.
Radeon Graphic iGPU uses 512MB of the 8GB ram along with other system resource leaving 7.3GB free ram. The iGPU does not steal more ram with upgrade to 16GB and beyond. AMD ditched Vega from the 3500U. The speed of this new iGPU with dual-channel 3200 RAM is only minimally faster than the Vega 8 iGPU in a motile M142 which only have single channel 2400 RAM. Very interesting...

The laptop is confirmed to be able to drive two 4K monitors at the same time with both the USB C and HDMI 2.0 in use.
SSD: Samsung MZVLB512HBJQ 512GB M2 NVMe or Intel SSDPEKNW512G8H 660p Series NVMe (512GB, M.2 80mm PCIe 3.0 x4, 3D2, QLC) or SK Hynix BC501 HFM512GDJTNG-8310A 512GB M.2 NVMe
According to the service manual on HP site, there is one M2 slot which could use both SATA and NVMe SSD.
CPU: Ryzen 5 4500U is faster than i5-8300H and i5-9300H but slower than i7-8750H. Amazing considering this is a 15W CPU being compared against 45W CPU. It is slightly faster than i7-1065G7 in multicore and slightly slower in single core.
Watching a 4K HEVC X265 movie file with MPC-HC 1.9 uses 14% of battery for each hour at minimum brightness and with wifi on but inactive on balanced setting in HP command center.. So that's good for almost 6.5 hrs of 4K movie watching with 10% battery left. Can probably get more hr if playing 1080p files as the iGPU usage is lower when playing lower-res files.
The thermal settings inside the HP Command Center really does make a lot of difference regarding how fast the laptop runs, when plugged in. Cinebench R15 was 924 on performance setting dropping down to 702 on Cool setting.
The Cool setting does seems to lengthen the battery time a bit more but not that much because on battery, the laptop is already throttled down a lot anyway.
RAM info: Crucial RAM . Check for these specs: DDR4 3200 and SODIMM 260-Pin Memory. (need to add filter)

Thoughts from user:iGeorge.
Can someone please test if this laptop throttles by running Prime95 for 10 minutes then run hwinfo64 to check if the laptop throttles? This is very important for me.
This laptop throttles after 10 minutes:
Someone said it didn't, but the above seems to say this laptop does throttle. Wish HP could have provided better air flow.
