For those interested, its a LENSE20256GMSP34MEAT2TA. Not too shabby for an OEM branded drive, and certainly a bargain for the whole package (I paid $767.01 total for R5-2500U/2x4GB/256GB NVME/FHD IPS 14.1" LCD/65W PD quick charge USB-C adaptor/W10H/3 years on-site).

Have to turn off write-cache buffer flushing under Device Manager, otherwise write speeds will tank.

Unhappy

Geekbench scores looked disappointing, at least for my machine.
This is despite following the power profile setting tips provided by ArcticCheetah in this thread + manually setting the minimum processor state to 100%...

Quite a good deal now for E585.

Code at night SGNIGHT -$250
E585 comes with Win 10 Pro. Select Home edition -$90
If you select the middle option for E585($840 at night), the 16 GB RAM add $10 only.
Add $25 for FHD and $2 for 65W AC Adapter.
Add $0.03 cents for 3Yrs NBD, Bag and mouse. (Don't forget this)

Grand Total is $787.03 for Ryzen 5 2500U, FHD, Win10 Home, 16GB, 256GB SSD (3Yrs Warranty).

or more ideal is $907.03 for for Ryzen 5 2500U, FHD, Win10 Home, 16GB, 512GB SSD (3Yrs Warranty),

Can still minus -$90 if you choose Ryzen3 2200U and it falls to $697.03 for 256GB SSD and 3Yrs Warranty.

E485 is 1.75kg. a bit heavy for travelling?
MacBook Pro weighs 1.83kg. Heavy or not is subjective.

Macbook Pro 1.85 kg: so sleek, so light, $2k? Worth every penny.
Lenovo 1.75kg: huh 1.75 kg? Can be lighter or not? $800? Still very expensive leh

Why compare a 15 incher to a 14 incher? Should compare 15 inch E585 to 15 inch MBP. Then become 2.1kg vs 1.85kg.
