Just use the coupon code, FLASH.

As for whether the $100 NTUC voucher, it never indicate. Bonus if it comes with it

Avoid, heat issue is not from the chip but the NB design itself.
So far no manufacturer have design a prefect AMD Ryzen based NB.

Probably a cooling pad might help.

Back to the E585, it does feel a bit warm on the top bottom right of the keyboard for a Ryzen 5. However, for Ryzen 3, I did not feel it.

Disappointing. Hopefully, the E585 can last.

anyone has "power on AC attach" option in their bios?
i want to be able to power on the laptop (from shutdown/hibernation) while the lid is closed.
don't want to spend $ on the USB-C dock, too expensive.
unless someone has recommendations for compatible USB-C docks with 'power button'.

The onsite 3 year warranty is additional $220. That's a of $$$

Don't seem to be able to customise.

Does look better though.

and
16GB(8+8) DDR4 2400MHz SODIMM
