Yes! Please do recommend.
May I know budget? Usage? Any preferences or requirements? (eg display size, upgradeable RAM, good display etc)

After reading the previous responses :
1) Wanted to check feedback on the Ideapad Slim 5i and specs above? Not many reviews on this model yet. Read commercial / business notebooks are better but they dont offer the specs i am looking for and cost is higher.
2) Many advise to wait for new models. Since the i7-1065G7 is relatively new release, thinking if i should wait. Any idea new models will be for AMD or Intel?
3) Is 512GB enough SSD? Opted to leave 1st hard drive slot as dummy so i can add on later (i assume its possible).
-take the i5, the i7 doesn't bring any noticeable performance improvements (since it has dGPU)
-in China this model is called 小新15, there are some reviews on it
-there is a Ryzen version in this model, however if you prefer less CPU performance and more GPU performance, my suggestion would be i5+MX350 (25W)
-512GB is enough for many users, of course it depends on your usage

I see.. may upgrade the ram later if i bought it.
Maybe an i5 or on par for cpu as well as a dedicated gpu.
Display is fine whether 14 or 15.6 inch, as long as not too heavy for travelling purpose (around 1.7kg is fine).
Sorry for asking since this is the 2nd time I'm buying a laptop in 10 years time.
My loyal Dell N4010 has served me since 2010, so hoping this new one can endure that long too

Nowadays laptops in general won't last long due to mass production and business tactic, 3-5 yrs would be my best betThis post has been edited by ZM Fong: May 30 2020, 06:31 PM
