No follow up emails from Lenovo. Checked the status in Lenovo acct and it still shows ship out by 31 Dec 2020. 1st charge is not $1 as well or rather, there is no $1 charge in my citi cc.
I believe that's just how Lenovo pre-authorization works. They will keep charging every 15 days when the previous authorization expired until your order shipped. It took around 3 weeks for the first authorized credit to be reflected back in my account on my previous order.

As stated in their website:

For credit card orders
  1. A SGD1 pre-authorization will be requested on your credit card for security verification, it will be cancelled and returned to your credit card immediately.
  2. We will authorize the order total amount on your credit card, this authorization will be expired in 7-15 days and we will re-authorize after the expiry. The first authorized credit will be returned to your credit card.
  3. Lenovo will charge you officially ONLY when your product has been shipped. If your order contained two or more items, payment may be charged separately.

with your $2000 budget, you can go for a fully specced out legion 5 amd with 2 x 1tb nvme ssd and rtx 2060, 144hz panel, rgb keyboard and still have budget leftover 😁

just go for it!

you can even config it with 8gb ram and use the remaining budget to get a 32gb ram kit and install it yourself

Read up, make sure you buy the correct ram, if not ur ram might run at lower speeds, affecting performance.

Anyone eyeing the Yoga 6? Been waiting for it to come out since HP Envy x360 not in stock. Looks like good value for a 2-in-1 laptop, but waiting until closer to BFCM to hoot.
It looks good on paper. It is actually the same weight as my new Yoga Slim 7.

Damn. Now it seems I regret getting my yoga slim 7. Should have gotten the yoga 6 with the 2-in-1 laptop.

huawei mate d15 is operating on the old ryzen 3500U processor.
for just S$100 more, you can get a Lenovo ideapad slim 5 with the newer and faster Ryzen 4500U.

lenovo ideapad is using DDR4 rams running at 3200mhz, which is higher clockspeed than mate d15 running at 2400mhz

furthermore, colour accuracy wise, ideapad slim 5 is slightly better than huawei.

Same memory 16gb

only OEM AMD ryzen gaming laptops sellers allow buyers to custom ram to 64GB...so

wanna go with major brands, then its mostly 16GB ram

if you spotted any AMD 4600H / 4800H gaming laptop brand which is able to offer 2060 with more than 32GB of ram AND below $2000

please share here.
