Question AMD Ryzen NB Pricing | Lenovo Thinkpad E485/585 AMD Ryzen under $1k a steal?

Gosh I didn't know that Lenovo Thinkpad E485/E585 AMD Ryzen
was just released and OMG.
The pricing is

Spoiler!


AMD Ryzen 5 2500U is similar to Intel i5-8250U with Geforce MX150.
Now beg the question why that Lenovo Thinkpad based on Ryzen
go below $1k?
Others like HP Envy 360, Probook, Elitebook at least $1.5k onwards.

Not to mention the overpriced Ideapad 720s based on the same
processor.
However that pricing if that laptop goes out onto retail shop.
Intel lappy with Intel U processor sales will be affected.

Intel i7 with MX150, SSD will go about $1.3k.
Since the pricing is so low, many business will sure want to
buy it. (Provided if they can accept AMD Processor as
some coy do not use AMD due to compatibility issues.)

Take note:
Thinkpad E series are budget Thinkpad.
In the past there is E475 and A475.
A475 is the premium version with better options like LTE modem.
However not known whether will there be a A485 or not.

Good price. I was playing around with it, and by adding a 1080P IPS monitor +25, and upgrade to 16GB ram +110. All for 925.

Upgrade to full hd is $25.

Upgrade to 12gb team is $50
To 16gb is $110

There's the 1 cents upgrade also.

Can't figure out whether can upgrade to Ryzen 7 to find out the cost.

At the moment don't see option for Ryzen 7.

seems like the basic specs like really not bad though. just that not sure how is the temp of the system. although 1.75kg seems like quite okay weight (not too heavy and light though)

Why so? Instead of doing so, perhaps can try to find a review if you concern is cooling.
