UPS same as other couriers, delivery window whole day. Ever they delivered an item at 10pm before. Only one which can schedule specific window and date in my experience is DHL.
so far dhl and fedex or even shunfeng has been kind to me, can schedule like morning or afternoon slot.

UPS did not come on Friday night, called them on Sat morning, CSO say don't know why never deliver, say will ask warehouse delivery side to call me to explain. Then when i ask them to deliver on Sat, they say cannot, must call 1 day in advance to arrange, now can only arrange to delivery on Monday. wtf..lan lan just gotta accept.

best part warehouse delivery side call me and say they didn't receive any instructions at all to do evening delivery...the lady checked the system and tell me i scheduled for monday delivery already, I told her that is the earliest timing CSO can schedule, she said NO, can delivery on SAT afternoon if i want......

i just wanna say...their whole system is just fked up.

Looking at Lenovo website now still have promo code "amd18".

Now option for Ryzen 3 and 7!

Ryzen 3 minus $90
Ryzen 7 plus $80.
But the base price increased by 100.

ok i got the laptop already, sorry i didn't do any in depth testing, was busy installing the necessary software and get it delivered to my aunt to use.

Heat issues - Its running cooler than my current 4 year old Asus Intel laptop for sure. The Fan is also quieter.

Battery life - didn't have the chance to fully test it. Charging was pretty fast, full charge was about 1 hr + on the 45W charger. There are different modes (4 modes i think) for you to choose while on Battery, I was on better performance mode(2nd best) and battery indicated it will last about 5hr +.

Oh ya, talking about the battery, it is built in, non removable.

Overall the laptop is smoother and faster than my 4 year old asus, watching 1080 p youtube videos is alright.

Overall, quite pleased with price paid and quality of it.

*oh ya love the numpad keyboard.

Previously was 790. They shouldn't start at that price to begin with unless they are offering the 2700 as a standard configuration now.

Personally, I feel the R7 2700U is likely not much better than the 2500U even with the higher end GPU and clockspeed. Problem boils down to the power limit set by the manufacturer. If they keep it strictly at 15W and 25W(boost), then I would expect the R7 to throttle more when it hits the limit.

I don't think they are clearing old stock. Anyway, I suspect it could be (1) GSS and (2) to entire tertiary students buying new laptops.

Anyway, unless there is a very good cooling system on the laptop, a faster apu might throttle, resulting in slower sustained speed. For that price, I doubt it will be an excellent cooling system.

They changed the basic specs to give the impression that the price is very low. Starting at $660

Ryzen 5 to 3
500gb and no SSD
4gb ram instead of 8gb

Really trying to smoke those that didn't know a better deal was available initially
