Comes with a Core i5-1135G7 [intel.com] CPU which is an 11th gen 4 core 8 thread with Intel Iris Xe 80 EU cores integrated graphics. This is a surprise bonus at this price. I have an older laptop with 48 core Iris graphics and it can play less demanding games in lowered settings. Think Starcraft II, League of Legends, etc.

The 1080p touchscreen is IPS though no details on brightness (I'd assume 250 nits).

This is surprisingly not terrible. laugh out loud If I were in the market for a basic laptop (normal internet/desktop usage) this one sounds great for the price.

EDIT:

Per Crucial [crucial.com] this has two RAM slots and can take an m.2 PCIe SSD for upgrades.

Per this video [youtube.com] it also has a 2.5" SATA drive bay, plus the included SSD is of course one of the m.2 2230 SK hynix drives found in most Dells these days.
$7 USB to Ethernet dongle for the win.
Same system is at Micro Center for $349... https://www.microcenter.com/produ...uter-black

Apparently has touchscreen, skimpy SSD, but no ethernet connection if you want to use it wired.

1080 IPS with touch, upgradeable RAM. No USB-C. This seems like a solid deal, no?

No USB-C.

I want to say that the 8GB RAM it includes is a single stick, so one slot open, based on my quick 5m research, but I can't be 100% certain.

Such a shame about the missing USB-C. It ticked all the other checkboxes.

per zippyzap's crucial.com link [crucial.com] it's expandable up to 64 GB, so yes you could upgrade the ram. best buy doesn't allow you to do it at purchase, however, so you'd have to take care of it yourself.

Seems like a solid deal and checks most of the boxes for me. I guess the only reason I haven't pulled the trigger is to see if something better pops up over the next week. Decisions, decisions.

If you want a traditional laptop that you can also write on, I'd recommend a 2-in-1/convertible laptop so you can flip the screen around and hold it like a big tablet.
