Screen doesn't have the high gloss touchscreens usually have. It looks matte to me.

Hopefully somebody can address these points: If you use a hub, could you use the same port to charge and send the video to an external monitor? When there were 59 comments on Costco's page for this, two people liked the battery life, one said the hinge is not good, and one asserted there are known hinge problems. jmw1214 found more complaints about the hinge. mpankuj has experienced the hinge problem.

I'm not sure what reviews you're seeing. There are 17 1/2/3 star reviews, of which 7 specifically mention the hinge. One of those 7 reports that there are 128 complaints on Lenovo's page directly about the hinge. I was considering purchase, but honestly, that makes me nervous.

Does Costco's warranty cover the hinge issue for the second year?

Specs are pretty good for the price but hinge has me too nervous to pull the trigger.

The problem is, Lenovo is trying to say this is accidental damage and not covered by warranty, although it is clearly a product defect. I would stay far away. Google for "broken hinge ideapad" There are hundreds with same problem, and many completely out of luck on this one.
