This Laptop does not have Ryzen 5 4600U, it has Ryzen 5 4500U which does not have SMT, hence 6 Core / 6 Thread design, as per Lenovo Official spec:
The Model # is 3D81YM00CBUS
https://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/I...81YM00CBUS

^This is incorrect. See post #29 of this thread for the box/label picture user dcguy703 has provided from his in-warehouse purchase of this specific model. 4600U confirmed. Probably a Costco-specific addition.

How much does an M1 MacBook Air with 16GB RAM and 512GB storage cost?
In 2-3 years you'll catch up and realize you can't get the latest and greatest for $550.
Anyone know the nits on the screen. Always trying to find one with at-least 300 but hard to find in this price range

The CPU is a beast and the RAM and SSD are decent, but sure wish it had a better camera. Backlit keyboard is nice too, but I wonder about how dim the screen is. I know Lenovo can be hit & miss inre quality, but there is the Costco returns/warranty benefit. Can anybody pipe in with how these IdeaPad 5's are?

Unable to find the specific nits for this one, but similar model numbers have 300 nits.

That's a 4500U model. Screens probably are the same.

Is it worth it to pay a bit extra for Lenovo LEGION 5 15.6" Gaming Laptop - Ryzen 5 4600H - GeForce GTX 1650 - 120Hz 1080p at $679.99 ? Or this one should be similar for most usage?

https://www.costco.com/lenovo-leg...01707.html

AMD Ryzen 5 4600H
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti 4GB GDDR6
15.6" FHD (1920x1080) IPS 250nits Anti-glare, 120Hz, 45% NTSC, DC dimmer
  • 3x USB 3.2 Gen 1
  • 1x power connector
  • 1x Ethernet (RJ-45)
  • 1x USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Always On)
  • 1x headphone / microphone combo jack (3.5mm)
  • 1x HDMI 2.0
  • 1x USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 (support data transfer and DisplayPort 1.2)


Looks like for IdeaPad 5, Memory soldered to systemboard (not upgradable), no memory slots. And there is no ethernet port.

Any idea if the HD can be upgraded to a larger size? I encountered a desktop recently that couldn't go any bigger than 256GB NVMe due to a motherboard limitation which really stinks.
