Ok sure ! noted. The storage can be upgraded? Ryzen 4500u range only comes with 256 gb.  console.gif

For some reason, they didn't list the storage upgrade option for L15, it's available on all other L14/E14/E15.

Anyway, the price they quote isn't too worth it either, you're better off buying 3rd party storage upgrade outside yourself. Bigger and faster.

Up course, those are just normal M2 NVME SSD.

Some of the models even have additional slot to mount multiple M2 SSD drives at once (though not every of them can run both at once).

Best is to check the teardown video of the exact model you're getting and you will get the idea of what's coming (cooling/maintenance/upgradeability etc.)

not everyone like business laptop design so i understand

Swift 3 is decent but has some sacrifices (low sRGB panel, 8GB non-upgradeable RAM...)

Looking for recommendation with

Intel i7 10th Gen
at least 8GB RAM
512gb SSD
14" or 15" screen

Been thinking on Lenovo Thinkbook, Asus Zenbook, HP Pavillion, MSI modern. What would be a good reliable one? Mostly for work only. No gaming.

Been using Dell but my inspiron 14 keeps having blue screen issue...

Thanks in advance

Hello, am looking for something to replace my old laptop from 2008.
Its still working fine just that it doesnt allow me to install latest itunes to backup my phone anymore.
Office laptop is a thinkpad x270.
I dont game.
I consume digital contents via iphone/ipad/Tv most of the time.
Rarely use laptop outside of work but I would hope that it can last & hassle free - no hang/lag when surfing multiple tabs/youtube.
Weight conscious as i may bring out occasionally.
Budget 2.5-3.5k
Thank you notworthy.gif notworthy.gif
