Something to be very aware of.

RAM 8GB
Additional memory slots No
Max. memory 8GB

the HDD is a PCIe NVMe SSD so could be upgraded but
If you attempt to replace the SSD yourself, the computer warranty may become void.

So don't replace the SSD yourself until the two year warranty period has lapsed?

600 euro? Where's the bargain?


That expertreviews review is definitely a paid review.

I also believe the RAM is soldered in so not upgradable in existing slots

This laptop is basically a rebadged Huawei Matebook 14 D

but Roachy18 said there is very little with the same spec at that price point !

(unless you bagged the Lenovo deal ....kicking myself for procrastinating )

Very hard to buy anything on this site... try to checkout as a guest.... does not allow you to change country from UK.

Try to register.. sends you a verification code... tells you its the incorrect one.

256gb ssd is nothing. My work laptop has that and it's a constant struggle to keep free space on it. The only people this will suit, are those who dont really intend on using it.

Same as on the Lenovo from the other thread (256gb), that's going to be adequate for many (myself included)

I'm currently using an almost 10 year old Asus K43U which has 152GB of which 14.2GB is still free.
