I remember there were some discussions that ASUS laptop memory is soldered, which will limit your option to upgrade memory by yourself.
Acer and Lenovo tend to give better value for money. I have gone through many brands of laptops and they are more or less similar in terms of durability. Hence, I recommend looking out for the features that you want instead of brands.
If you are more willing to take some risk on the warranty, the Black Friday sale at Amazon (US) could throw up very good deals e.g (non-OLED). https://www.amazon.com/Acer-SFX14-42G-R607-Creator-LPDDR4X-Backlit/dp/B09R8ZHZSD/ref=sr_1_4?crid=6QGZTGZI144L&keywords=laptop+amd+ryzen+7+nvidia+3050&qid=1700349151&sprefix=laptop+amd+ryzen+7+nvidia+3050,aps,309&sr=8-4&th=1
I do see the soldered one, and also saw that soldered one gives better performance or something? But I guess you're right, if they only have single slot with 16gb, I could upgrade it by buying 32gb single piece myself and replace (thus the upgrade). Having said that, I don't want to limit myself to the models just because of the RAM itself so at least there more comparison to go about.
Feature wise, I kinda feel that most are about the same as well isn't it? Not sure if I missed anything, or what you mean by feature.
I have bad experience with Acer long time back, but I have heard that Acer is better nowadays. Was using Asus previously and it was alright. I'm a light laptop user, since I use desktop more than laptop. Maybe I should go for lower cost over better features?
I do value local warranty though, so don't think I'll get oversea deal.
