I've gotten the Motile M141 almost the same time and same way as you did. I got mine at US199. Have upgraded the ram to 16gb and looking to replace sata sdd to an nvme one and a wifi 6 ax200 wifi card to make it even sweeter

not too sure about it, probably have to wait for their holiday or sale. seen some articles mentioning the m142 ryzen 5 had a low price of US299 before (now US419.98 ) , missed out on that deal.

It looks like a great deal, though I suspect the ram is single channel. So for those looking for a cheap gaming laptop, this may not fit the bill well since it will severely cripple performance.

Looking at the specs, this will run circles around those cheap laptops with Intel Silver processors.

No need to suspect. It is confirmed. Single stick. Just search for this brand on YouTube. Plenty of review.

Personally I won't consider any laptop with amd ryzen cpu where the ram is single stick. If this lappy has duo stick that it is really a big winner. If Linus Tech Tip recommends it for the price point.

Linus from Ltt mentioned it was single slot
Haha so definitely single channel!

Do anybody know of any website that shows / consolidates all bargain sales or great buys in USA?

I know sites for cars, but not tech (which I am assuming you are looking for)

Yes can. PowerBI is just the UI anyway, the processing is done on-cloud.

its really because AMD has been smacking Intel in almost all market segments in terms of performance.

and this Motile laptop is one of the cheapest of the Ryzen laptops with very decent build quality. Just do a youtube search for it. For the price, you are getting a laptop that can best an i5 and older generation i7s, pretty amazing.
