What the heck in the world were they thinking? equipped with 4K display and then not even give a second RAM slot. Damn!
I think companies have found the golden recipe of planned obsolescence. Just dont give the option to upgrade RAM and make it as bare as possible [yup, for 4K display, 8GB is a bare min for now so within a year or so, the system will crawl like a snail forced you to upgrade]

It's a racket. Most compact systems come with soldered ram these days. They have the 8GB systems for people who want the cheapest, but anyone who knows better will have to pay the extra $100-$200 highway robbery price for the 16GB. But then they end up putting these 8GB systems on sale so who knows. I would be somewhat excusable 2+ years ago when ram prices were sky high, but now a 8GB laptop ram stick is $35.

Here's the 16GB model for $1050, down spec in CPU and it's 1080P, but it does have a MX250 GPU:

Sigh. Also the new Envy models are dropping soon:

Honestly this is perfect for my use case. Wife is going back to school, she uses it for browsing and word editing. 4k is perfect since it's easier to place two apps side by side and she refuses to use the desktop or dock. All other 4k systems start at $950+ right now. I get that 8gigs is not enough for power users and might not be enough in 4-6 years, but the savings can assist to replace it at a fraction of the cost when comparing systems by specs.

I have an honest question. Will you please explain what does the resolution of the screen have to do with the amount of memory you have or need. I know some systems that uses nvidia graphics will use part of your memory as video memory thus decreasing your available system memory, but i think this uses Intel UHD for video in which case it doesn't tap into your system memory. i could be wrong, so please elaborate.

In general I do agree with having expandable memory. I use to not think so, but have changed my tune. I returned the Yoga C740 and kept my LG Gram 13 because it can upgrade memory.

What you described is actually true in reverse order. Dedicated cards have their own memory and don't tap into system RAM while integrated card take their RAM from system. That's why is dual channel RAM configuration is desirable as well.

I have this laptop, and I think you will like it for your own uses that you described. The 4K screen is really vibrant and bright at 400 nits, and 8 GB of ram has been enough for me for browsing the internet and light gaming. I regularly open 10-20 tabs at a time, and my system is still running fine. The sound is also clear and doesn't sound tinny. With an Intel Core i7 processor and 512 GB of storage, you won't find a better deal at $699.99.

Has a thunderbolt 3 port, but no expandable ram. Probably should include in description.
