To be clear, did you buy the 6600hs model? I'd rather have the 680m tbh (plus extra storage is nice). By Windows standby, are you talking about the issue of the laptop losing excessive battery when you close it? I saw a LTT video on it so that's the only reference I have. I'd be replacing my Macbook M1 so the standby problem will be annoying I guess

I had been hoping that deal would come back in stock. I thought this deal was similar enough to pull the trigger. Is the 6600hs version much better ? I thought it was close enough other than this version having slightly better graphics and 6600 version obviously having the 1 TB drive. I don't know what I'm looking at though.

Yeah I have the one with 6600hs.

My battery gripe is that I barely use my laptop, so I prefer to have it hibernate pretty early on. Instead, hibernating seems to only kick in automatically if I hit low battery so I have to do it via power button. Like I maybe will go a week between uses.

I haven't really played many games on mine as I have a desktop, but I was pleasantly surprised to see xcom2 run at a reasonable frame rate.

The iGPU of 6600HS is on the level of a Vega 8 in the 5800U. The GPU in this deal MX450 is on the level of 6800HS iGPU. So if you're gaming get this. If you're traveling a lot and don't care about GPU or gaming get that.

The Elitebook with 6800U at $800 over BF was the most ideal. You get the CPU and GPU power in one chip, and the battery life will be good. Plus the construction of Elitebook vs IdeaPad.

PS: There is another small niche for this machine, which comes with NVidia's CUDA API. If you ever need CUDA (for some advanced subjects in school or 3D modeling programs for work) or doing video edits with certain programs, it will work a lot better than iGPUs. If you didn't know about CUDA then don't worry.

you seem to keep up with mobile hardware, do you have a recommendation in this price range for great fit/finish and battery life and no gaming needs?

You can pretty much go with any of the major brands as long as the construction is some kind of high-quality material (aluminum alloy or reinforced carbon fiber).

I don't know how much better the IdeaPad 5 Pro is to the IdeaPad 5, I know the regular IdeaPad 5 is garbage.

I liked the Acer Swift 3 https://slickdeals.net/f/16189888-acer-swift-3-14-intel-evo-laptop-12th-gen-intel-i5-1240p-16gb-ram-512gb-ssd-550-15-565

Lenovo Thinkbook 13s looks good too, but you need to pay attention to Lenovo's coupon pricing https://slickdeals.net/f/16255015-thinkbook-13s-gen-4-laptop-ryzen-7-6800u-13-3-2560x1600-16gb-lpddr5-256gb-ssd-710-06

I also like the Dell Latitude Refurb from Dell Outlet on eBay. Pricing varies, but occasionally they will pop a 16GB configuration for less than $600.
