It's aimed at sme business users. For productivity functions, great should be that much of a issue? Thought concern is more for gaming.

Oh sux, maybe they forget to inflate the price.
They take down first than later maybe price adjust above $1k.

Yes but take note for lappy with Mx150.
On default is Intel HD, geforce only kick in during game and etc.
AMD wise one chip and on default is Vega 11 so no switching.

I have a slight concern on the heat dissipation issue with AMD processor too. I am looking at the 14" one. I wonder why the 256GB SSD which should hold the Win 10 OS is installed as 2nd drive while the 1st drive is left empty. Isn't the system drive is always installed as 1st drive? Anyone here can enlighten me?

I went AddOn at Bugis Junction this afternoon, trying to take a look at the actual notebook. But I was told it is only available online.

Not bashing Intel.
Try using a Intel H 6 core with 1050 graphic lappy.
That lappy is have is really hot.
Ryzen 5 is 15watt APU so unlikely to have hot issues since it is low wattage.
U can read review on laptop based on it, they did not mention about overheating.

I am more concern with the battery life. It's 45w only so does it last at least 5 hours ?
Processor
AMD Ryzen 5 2500U Processor (6MB Cache, up to 3.60 GHz)

Operating System
Windows 10 Home 64

Display Type
15.6" HD 1366x768 TN AntiGlare

Memory
8GB DDR4 2400MHz SODIMM

Graphics
AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphics

Hard Drive
None

Warranty
1 Year Depot or Carry-in(Local + International)

Pointing Device
NO Fingerprint Reader, Black Cover

Second Hard Drive
256GB Solid State Drive PCIe OPAL2.0 M.2 2280 (16GT/s)

Battery
3 Cell Li-Polymer Battery 45WH

Wireless
QCA QCNFA435AC with Bluetooth Version 4.1

Take note:
Panel best to go for Full HD
RAM if possible go for Dual Channel not single
HDD wise up to you but try not to get only HDD.
Windows 10 can run really slow on HDD.

Based on capacity, probably not. But with a 768p display, it probably could.

seems like HP might bring in AMD specs as well.
