Thanks for the information.



Looking at comparing between E485 and E585 but for some reason with the same configuration E485 is around $210 more expensive as compared to E585 due to the preconfigured Window 10 home and SSD size.
beacsue one is lighter than the other.

15" lappy are usually cheaper.

Harvey Norman selling Envy x360 13 with the 2500U but you can save $400 if you go across the causeway, making it only $1200
I chatted with the HP store customer service agent (Malaysia store one, but doesn't matter because Singapore store one also use the same office)

I can buy both the laptop and 3-year warranty from the Malaysia online store, bring it to Singapore and the warranty will be valid in Singapore because the model is supported in Singapore. Only RM3980 (about $1350)



HP vs Lenovo

i5 vs Ryzen 7
8GB 2133 (cannot even upgrade more) vs 16GB 2400
MX150 vs Vega 10
2 years carry in vs 3 years onsite warranty
onboard for most peripherals vs you can change almost anything in it
$1350 vs <$1000...

https://h20386.www2.hp.com/MalaysiaS...001385_4RW11PA


if have cash to burn, i agree - the HP seems awesome.

That's cos you looking at the wrong model, they looking at Envy x360 with Ryzen you looking at normal Envy with i5 of course different.

Thanks for the clarifications! made my purchase on E585 since i will be using it at home most of the time and its cheaper too. Opt for

AMD Ryzen 5
16GB(8+8) DDR4 2400MHz
256GB Solid State Drive
65W AC Adapter (3pin)
and 3 of the 1 cent promo items.

Total: SG$787.03

Might add additional HDD once i receive my laptop!

Was thinking of future upgrades for the WiFi module and the HDD slot, saw this youtube video on the tear down and i realize that there is a HDD bracket and ribbon cable to be connected to the mobo, if we didn opt for any HDD i dont think they will give us any bracket and ribbon cables right? anybody bought the laptop and did some upgrade them self?

$1.6-$1.9k is already Latitude 5000/Probook/Thinkpad L tier. Overpriced unless you really like the aesthetics and keyboard layout on the Envy.

I see that there is an option to add in the 45w or 65w power cord. Then over at the accessories page, there is an option to add in the 45w or 65w charger.
If I don't select any charger, does that mean I will not receive any charger at all?
Thanks

Looking forward, mine scheduled to ship end of the month.

I doubt so, the accessories page gives you additional accessories such as additional power brick and more, you will still receive the power brick that comes with the laptop you ordered.
