Is there a materilal difference between this 15z-eh100 chassis and the 15z-ef2000? You can have the latter in virtually the same configuration (but with a lesser Wi-Fi adapter) for $469.99 (after sellecting the 256GB SSD upgrade for $30).

In fact, you can upgrade the linked laptop to touchscreen and still stay below $500. Or you can forego the touchscreen and get 16GB of RAM instead and still be at only $519.99.

Yes, there are some metal in the chassis and even the plastic components of HP Pavilion series is better and rigid than the HP 15 series, similar to Dell's Inspiron 3000 and 5000 series.
Another big thing you missed is the Type-C Port and HDMI Port. The Laptop you have linked, has a HDMI 1.4 port and the Type-C port is just a Data only-5 Gbps Port. So, you're stuck with 4K at 30 fps.

This has a fully functional Type-C port supporting, 10 Gbps Data (Twice faster), DisplayPort 1.4, supporting 4K at 120 Hz 0r two 4K at 60 Hz (Using a DP MST Hub) and Type-C Charging which is a huge advantage. Also, the HDMI port in this is a HDMI 2.0.
Basically without using any hub or dock, you can connect two 4K monitors at 60 Hz.

Ohh, you are getting backlit keyboard too.

Good points. Then this $510 config is a better option than the other laptop's $470 config for those who can take advantage of the upgraded ports. I wasn't too crazy about the other deal all along. I didn't find it to be a great value even without looking at the port specifics. That's why it wasn't clear to me why this would be better.

Unless they changed it on this specific model, the HP non-matte screens (basically, any brightview it seems) are terrible. Some 250 nit displays are fine...I think Lenovo and Acer matte ones are the best I've seen so far. The HP ones have a glossy finish and reflect light sources like a mirror, degrading the picture too much.
