I almost pulled the trigger on this until I saw the ram isn't upgradable. Still impressive specs for the price though.

Operating systems tend to use as much memory as available.

Two years ago I bought a ThinkPad X280 with 8GB RAM pre-installed as well as a 32GB (16GBx2) RAM kit. I was thinking I'd just do the upgrade myself instead of paying Lenovo 10x more for the extra RAM.

Fast forward 2 years and I still haven't installed the RAM kit since I've been too lazy to pry the thing open. The X280 has been working just fine with 8GB in single channel to be honest (MS Office, Chrome/Firefox, PS1 emulation, etc). I'll get around to installing the RAM eventually but I just haven't felt a pressing need to do so since the system doesn't stutter/freeze unlike my older laptops with HDD.

Sure, more RAM makes for smoother operation specially for heavy workloads. However, for typical usage I think the switch to NVMe SSDs instead spinning disks has made hitting the pagefile a lot less painful when the system runs out of free RAM.

To get a QHD laptop with 16GB RAM, you'd probably need to spend around $1,000 or more. This laptop is under $500. I'd rather save the $500+ now and just upgrade 2-3 years later to a laptop with faster CPU, etc. when the 8GB RAM starts causing the system to lag.

There's a deal on a HP aero that can be configured with QHD plus 16 GB ram for under $700. Incidentally it also weighs 2.2 lbs.

That's just 13" though. Anything more similar to LG gram 16/17?

The 5600U is a 15W TDP part while the 5600H is 45W.

The 5600U seems a bit slower in multi-core but considering the TDP difference, I'd say it's doing pretty good.
