Let me know what I missed ... seems like an amazing price. Use discount code SMB10 for an extra 10% off.

You can also get an additional 5% extra cash back with Discover and PayPal.

In configuration I dropped the OS to FreeDOS ... with the discount if you need a Windows license it's probably best to keep it, but I have a copy I'm moving.

Upgrade to Ryzen7

Keep 256GB SSD ... if you need more than that drop to 128 and upgrade on your own.

Drop to 4GB of RAM, simple to upgrade on your own and can currently get 32GB (16x2) for $120.

Bump display up to 1000nits with HD webcam

Get rid of extra? webcam

Select Keyboard, drop fingerprint and pen.

Upgrade to AX wifi

Drop extended warranty

Upgrade to 65 Watt power supply

Here's the link for the RAM upgrade that I saw this AM
https://slickdeals.net/f/14289182-crucial-ballistix-32gb-2-x-16gb-260-pin-ddr4-so-dimm-ddr4-3200-pc4-25600-laptop-memory-model-bl2k16g32c16s4b-119-99?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

And the quick spec page
https://www8.hp.com/h20195/v2/Get...582568.pdf

And a link to a review (albeit with the dimmer display).
https://www.notebookcheck.net/HP-...446.0.html

Just realized if you have a Discover card you can pay via PayPal and get another 5% cash back ... now down under $900 with the RAM upgrade Smilie

great price and screen
but here is a review with 3 major downsides:
https://www.notebookcheck.net/HP-...446.0.html


1. HDMI 1.4 instead of 2.0
2. no Thunderbolt 3 for the USB-C port
3. a bit thick and heavy, with large bezels for a 13.3"

other than that, seems like a great laptop and great options to spec it down for self-upgrades and maximum savings

dell also just announced XPS 13 and XPS 13 2-in-1 will get the new tigerlake soon
but I think those will still be double the price of this, although at a higher spec, better screen, better graphics, and TB4 support...

so the best choices for powerful convertible seems to be XPS 13 2-in-1 for high end specs, and ProBook for lower-end but still powerful specs for half the price of XPS 13

I linked to that exact review in my first comment. The only thing I'm stuck on at this point is the screen. From a review of the previous generation it looks like you lose a fair amount of brightness because of the 'Sure View' filter (previous gen dropped down to just under 700 nit average) and it messes with some viewing angles, but don't really plan on looking at the laptop from a 45 degree angle much so not sure that part matters. lol

Has anyone gotten an HP laptop with 'Sure View 3' that has any opinions on the quality of the screen?

Nice link, Thanks! I love the comparison to a phone since that's what a lot of us stare at all the time. Here's another video I found on youtube comparing the 1000nit with a 400nit option in exactly the same computer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XC0EuhYQCvM

To me definitely looks like you are going to sacrifice viewing angles for brightness, but sitting in front of the computer it definitely seems the 1000nit is significantly brighter than the 400nit, but obviously not 2.5x.

Tigerlake pricing are indeed insane. I am seeing 1.5 to 2k.

I don't really want to talk about my employer ... LOL

The alternative is 250nits, and every 2 in 1 I've seen posted lately that's a primary complaint.
