Not sure why it is getting downvoting but I have checked all the reviews. At this price point, it is one of the best Thin & Light Laptops for content creation and productivity. It has better performance than far higher priced laptops like Dell XPS 15. The build quality is pretty decent despite plastic used in most areas (Lid is Metal). Only disadvantage is that it does not have a fully functional Type-C port. Also, for a 15.6" Laptop with a 45W 8 Core CPU and a 50W RTX 3050 + a superb OLED Screen, it is just 3.68 lbs.

It probably got down voted because it has soldered ram Thai laptop would of otherwise had lots of potential.

Also USB doesn't support power delivery so it can't be charged with is a USB cable.

And it has HDMi 1.4 which is really old. It's strange it only has HDMI 1.4.

I'd say 90% of laptops have soldered ram now due to everything being so low profile. I almost bought this but went with the Samsung Galaxy book 360 instead, needed the touch screen.

I guess SD just does not like the 3050 in any case.

You won't get more than RTX 3050 or 3050 Ti at these kind of budget Thin & Light Productivity Laptops. Just think, the far costlier Dell XPS 15 maxed out to a RTX 3050 Ti 45W which is actually having lower performance than this one.
This is a 15.6" Laptop, comes with OLED display, weights only 3.7 lbs but packs full power H series Processor and a max 50W TGP RTX 3050. At this price, you can get a OLED laptop from Samsung with just a 4 Core CPU and no dedicated graphics.

That screen sounds pretty amazing especially at this price point. Love how lightweight it is and that it comes with an RTX 3000 series. Unfortunately it does have a few drawbacks like the soldered RAM and not being able to charge via USB-C.. Would've been an istantbuy for me if not for those 2 things.
