Nice deal. There are very rare laptops at this price range have hdmi2.0 port and thunderbolt that support 4k@60Hz on an external 4k monitor.

Had it for a month and love it so far. Can handle DaVinci Resolve just fine. This newest model has brighter screen and 100% sRGB

bad reviews
8 - 11% 1-2 star. Sorry but that is not bad.

Although I have no clue how the 16GB 1TB is worth $360 more than the same I7 with 8GB and 256GB. Cheaper to just buy a 1TB NVME for more performance.

That's good to hear about DaVinci resolve. I would be using it mostly for Lightroom and Photoshop, nothing too intensive. Maybe some light video editing. I was worried that 8 gigs of RAM would not be enough. Do you think this would work for my needs?.

Yup, the discount could be great on additional upgraded models :-(

I have a 16gb stick waiting. If the ram was expandable I would've got it right away. But I mean I am only going to run hackintosh…

Yes, all current models for the last couple years are required to include TPM or vTPM.

It looks like the 16GB/1TB one is a higher end model (Swift 3 vs Swift 5). Besides memory & storage, it also has a touch screen (if that is important to you) and anti-microbial coating. It may also have a brighter screen since the high end model specs 350 nits but the low end one does not.

The battery is 4 vs 3 cell. It is a bit smaller .5" in height and lighter .3 lb. It also has two USB A V3 not 1 and 1 USB A V2..

The soldered memory is far faster than SODIMM. It is LPDDRX on both of them. 4266 not 3200. So if you get upgradable memory with a different brand it will be slower memory.

So I can see why some would be willing to pay $360 more for it.
