For the price this looks pretty good. Use costco credit card for 2 years extra warranty.

Right that same 4 years costs 89 dollars from Lenovo which you see in the Vantage app. So it's a real savings. My Costco also sells Allstate/Squaretrade insurance for 3 years for 99.00 which has the accidental coverage....which could be important for college students

That expired deal expired on SD even before the cutoff...This deal is new because it has an expiration date of 3-10-21 and is in stock now.

Just returned this laptop in Costco. Once I updated the Bios, all issues started coming in - random crashes, frequent restarts , blue screen of death. Is Dell xps the only windows laptop to have good built quality and better hardware ?

This one has a conflict with logitech webcam 930e which the webcam is not connecting well to this computer during zoom, meet and window camera app. 930e has no problem with my other 4 computers. Video driver might be an issue but after update/ downgrade multiple driver files, still not recognized well. Fast enough not to return...just need to live with blurry onboard default camera or may try other webcams.

IdeaPads and XPS are on different quality levels. IdeaPads are more equivalent to the Dell Inspiron line.

For touchscreen costco doesn't offer the 2 years extra warranty.

For this one you can't use it as a tablet right? like fold it to tablet or detach the screen?

Just learned about nits, to watch movies and long usage, how many nits is considered good quality screen?
