This seems like a modular computer and good deal especially with RAM upgrades, any clear drawbacks?

Battery size it a bit smaller. But due to the high efficiency of Ryzen processors, you'll still get decent battery life, just not great.

Exceptionally priced for an Eight core productivity laptop. Checks most of the boxes. Good contrast display, robust cooling (dual fans), plenty ports, 2 x SODIMM & M.2. Downsides are the tiny battery and so-so display. Review of the similar intel counterpart: https://www.notebookcheck.net/MSI...878.0.html

Looks like a good deal to me, specially since the RAM can be upgrade to 64GB.

Pulled the trigger on this one. Has everything I needed for a regular workhorse and still extremely upgradeable and is not a Dell (had two Dell Latitude from work burnout on me)
Reviews are decent and I'm not looking to use the inbuilt speakers so.... Thanks to OP

Rookie laptop Q: Any idea if I can run 2 of those external 15.6" displays from the ports on this laptop?

I've never owned a laptop, but I'm considering doing some travel, but I need screen real estate for work.

Not from this one without using any hub or dock.

45% NTSC screen (around ~60% sRGB) - meaning that the colors will look washed out relative to a 100% sRGB screen.

hdmi and usb-c port.. yes, you can. You can do USB-C to HDMI. Or you could get a dock as someone else mentioned to have less plugged in, but you don't have to.

Pretty OK overall. Don't expect amazing performance, but it can play most modern games fine at medium/low.
