$730 and much better integrated graphics, and includes a pen.
This is my pick, should handle everything described very well: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PB5M8DS/
p.s. your niece sounds awesome, and you're awesome for helping like this!
I'm not too sure about the upgradability (not exactly the best w/ laptops) but I found this Lenovo Ideapad Flex the other day. 3500U, 8GB DDR4, 256GB NVMe, 1080p. Can fold up into a tablet and comes with a pen for the display. I think it came to around $560 with tax.
This is not a sale - it's been this price for most of the time that it's been listed on amazon: https://camelcamelcamel.com/Lenovo-Convertible-Touchscreen-Processor-Graphics/product/B07PB5M8DS
The Dell Precision Xenoflower linked has pretty solid build quality considering its price. It may be a bit big if you're looking for an ultrabook though, as it has a 15.6" display and weighs in at 5.16 lbs.
If you really want great build quality in this price range you'll probably have to buy used/refurbished or stretch your budget a bit. A refurbished business-class laptop, such as the Thinkpad T480, Latitude 7480, or HP Elitebook G4 would fit the bill quite well.
Two more I'd say to consider are the Lenovo Flex 14 for $530. It meets most of your requirements with a Ryzen 5 processor (similar to an i5), decent integrated graphics card, 256GB PCIE SSD, and comes in at 14". I wouldn't expect amazing build quality but it could still last a while if treated well.
You could also consider the 14" Lenovo THinkpad L480 that's on sale at TigerDirect. It's not quite as well built as the T-Series thinkpads but should still be a bit better than most consumer laptops in this price range. It also doesn't have an SSD but you could install one yourself.
If you're on a budget, I just picked up this laptop and definitely recommend it. I did a lot of research beforehand and it's the best thing out there in this price range. It's running a Ryzen 5 CPU, which means it's got some impressive graphics capability for your CAD work. Plus it's a 2-in-1 and pretty light, so it's also great for note taking in class.
Another major benefit, especially if you're engineering and have some technical skills, is that the RAM, battery, and SSD are user upgradeable, which means you'll be able to keep this laptop running strong for years with a couple cheap upgrades when it starts to slow down.
It's not as fancy as other laptops out there, the build quality is where they had to make some compromises. Plastic body, speakers arent amazing, not the best screen out there, and the battery life is about 5-6 hours. But it's Lenovo, so it's still pretty solid, the keyboard feels pretty good and the trackpad is as good as anything out there under about $900.
Overall there's nothing near this powerful out there at this price range, especially if the 2-in-1 touch screen matters to you. But whatever you choose, I would definitely recommend something with a discrete graphics card or an AMD Ryzen processor like this one if you're going to be doing graphics intensive work like CAD.
**note: if you'll be doing a ton of MATLAB however, MATLAB is optimized for Intel and runs a lot slower on AMD processors, so that may also be something to consider.
Hmmm. Well the 3500u is better than the 2200 u processor wise. It's on the newer 12 nm node:
The above model has a few reviews as well. The 256GB SSD is also a plus, at least vs. the 128 GB models.
It's at the upper end of your price range, but is a bit faster. Here's a quick benchmark comparison:
There may be some reviews of a laptop that has the 3500U somewhere on the notebookcheck site, to give you a better feel for the processor (and APU) performance.
If a 2 in 1 is a must in this price range then this flex is your best option, but if you want normal laptop then I would recommend this Acer Swift 3
the casing made of brushed aluminum and looks very premium so it's durable like you want.
It weighs 3.75 lbs which is light like you want.
The keyboard is a chiclet keyboard, typing on it feels spongy, but you get used to it quickly.
Drag and drop sometimes doesn't work as intended, but that is easily fixed with software.
Screen is glossy Full HD IPS, with very good viewing angles, the screen flickers at 200 Hz in a brightness level of 20%. if you have sensitive eyes might find this unpleasant (or you can get a headache if you are really sensitive).
The main (and maybe only) con about this laptop is how dim the screen can get, it is not usable in direct sunlight, and the coverage of colors is average (39% RGB and 61% sRGB).
Has very good heat management, and it doesn't throttle.
Speakers provide very clear sounds, and the maximum volume is pretty loud.
Battery life is very good at around 9-11 hours of usage on light to medium usage.

Literally just bought this today. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PB5M8DS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_YTxsDbNG51E3T?pldnSite=1&amp;utm_source=share&amp;utm_medium=ios_app
Should I buy the laptop in this post instead? Looking to use it for some gaming, Apex, WoW, Hearthstone and school stuff.
This 2 in 1 is a pretty good deal, it was just feature in a linus tech tips video with a lot of praise. It's got Vega 8 graphics so it can handle some light gaming too.
It's not under $500, but honestly anything under that isn't worth getting.
Personally I would just do the crucial one since it is $1 cheaper from Amazon and the g.skill one should run at the same latency/timings once installed. If it doesn't, playing around in the BIOS may not be fun for some people.
This review also used the crucial ram for the upgrade. It does note you need a T5 screwdriver.
For video editing, your main focus is on processing power and display quality, if you are editing as a hobby and want to spend as little as possible you can try something like the Lenovo Flex 14 81SS0005US would be a decent start
Screen Size : 14 inches
Processor : 2.1 GHz AMD R Series
Graphics : AMD Radeon Vega 8
RAM : 8 GB
Weight : 3.52 lbs
Storage Type : 256 GB SSD
Comments: A basic 2 in 1 laptop ideal for students to take from class to class to take notes and perform light productivity tasks. It has a decent build quality for its price and its specs are good enough for multitasking and having lots of tabs open
This Flex looks like a pretty stellar choice for under $600 https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Convertible-Touchscreen-Processor-Graphics/dp/B07PB5M8DS/ref=sr_1_28?keywords=laptops&qid=1558331085&refinements=p_n_feature_five_browse-bin%3A7817224011%2Cp_36%3A-60000&rnid=386442011&s=electronics&sr=1-28
Could you go slightly above budget and get this Lenovo Flex 14 2-in-1 Convertible Laptop which is currently on a deal ? It would do a great job for you based on what you are looking for and will be using this system to do.
Hi, if you can extend just a tad more, the Lenovo Flex 14 is a great fit. 1080p 14" IPS touchscreen display, i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and a 256 GB SSD storage.
14" Lenovo Flex 14 2-in-1 Convertible Laptop for $529.
1080p Touchscreen, AMD Ryzen 5 3500U Processor, Radeon Vega 8 Graphics, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 256GB NVMe SSD, Win 10, Pen Included
I recently picked up this Lenovo from Amazon. Typing on it right now. It's my work laptop/living room "iPad" all in one. Pen included in purchase. Can even take notes on it if I feel the need (pen + one note).
Limitations are the SSD - it's super fast, but 250gb isn't a lot of storage - and the RAM. The RAM is actually 4gb soldered on for the Vega integrated graphics, and a 4gb removable; so you can actually upgrade it. I'll probably throw in an 8gb from my retiring gaming laptop when I upgrade the SSD.
Do not regret spending the money at all.
The lenovo flip 14 is a nice option people who need want a cheaper 2 in 1. https://www.amazon.ca/Lenovo-Convertible-Touchscreen-Processor-Graphics/dp/B07PB5M8DS/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=flex+14&qid=1563394686&s=electronics&sr=1-3
The vega 8 most likely will be enough for inventor. At 730 price tag, this is a great option if you also want to take notes using your laptop.
As mentioned the Lenovo Flex 14 is a good option especially with the current discount it has a quad core Ryzen 3500U CPU and a Radeon Vega 8 Graphic GPU which will come very handy for gaming .
Lenovo Flex 14 (3500u, 8gb ram, 256gb nvme, 2-in-1) or the Huawei Matebook D (2500u, 256gb nvme, 2-in-1) for Unity/College and light gaming like League of Legends?
The Lenovo Flex 14 is definitely the laptop you are looking for. for an IPS display in this model you might have to jump a little outside your budget.
Maybe something like this Lenovo Flex 14?
The Vega 8 graphics isn't great, but significantly better than intel's integrated solution.
I am trying to stream using my new laptop but am getting major frame drops making it unwatchable. I was streaming on a PS4 but got this laptop on a great deal on prime day. I thought I would be able to stream Fortnite on it, but it looks like maybe not. The game runs fine otherwise, but on the stream its choppy af and unwatchable. I posed this question to r/twitch but got no response, please let me know if this is not the appropriate sub and ill remove it and try somewhere else. I'm pretty new to the PC world of gaming so I didn't know if there was some way to upgrade this or nah.
Thanks in advanced
and here is a lenovo that has just come up.
Lenovo Flex 14 2-in-1 Convertible Laptop, 14 Inch FHD (1920 X 1080) Touchscreen Display, AMD Ryzen 5 3500U Processor, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 256GB NVMe SSD, Windows 10, 81SS0005US, Black, Pen included
Supposedly this is good for gaming at the price point:

Non lo so qui non dice nulla
Found this today, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PB5M8DS
After currency exchange and getting it across the border it would be within my price range.
2 in 1, with a pen yet. Would this be good enough to run Lightroom Classic CC decently? (30-40mb raw files)
I'd suggest this one for you, since it matches up with mostly everything you're looking for, and it's got the specs to last you for a good couple years, as well as the stylus, battery life, HDMI port, and it's under your budget. Lemme know if you're looking for something with more power though. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PB5M8DS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_fYlZCbDQJCP5Y
what are your thoughts on this
I was looking at buying a Lenovo Flex 14 inch: It has everything (FHD display, ports, 8gb ram, 256gb SSD, ryzen 5 with vega 8 for better GPU, well built) minus a long-lasting battery, but I can live with that since I sit next to a port anyway. It's 529 on amazon right now (and comes with a pen so you can draw on the screen if you were on the go)https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Convertible-Touchscreen-Processor-Graphics/dp/B07PB5M8DS/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_147_bs_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=CD55341HBDX3R1JQXGCC
wow, this looks very cool, Sadly the price in italy is much different 1100 €, yea i know it's crazy....

why these two? here is another option for you to consider. https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Convertible-Touchscreen-Processor-Graphics/dp/B07PB5M8DS/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=laptop+ryzen&amp;qid=1564282753&amp;s=pc&amp;sr=1-4
Hi! I don't know if this is the correct thread for it but i've been looking to get a laptop for uni. I'm not very tech saavy but i've been doing lot's of research. I was just wondering if there's any reason to get this laptop: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07Q7Z84HQ/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=hotsellingproducts-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B07Q7Z84HQ&linkId=cdb0f2948913958daf7651983d854e6f
over this one:
Thanks in advance

This is a good option with 8 hour battery life: https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Convertible-Touchscreen-Processor-Graphics/dp/B07PB5M8DS?th=1
I recently bought a Lenovo Flex 14 for around $500 on amazon and it has worked out very well for my live band so far. I run backtracks and occasional realtime vocoding on it. I have also made it my main studio computer at this point as well. I use a behringer umc204hd interface for recording. Hasn't let me down yet.
Thanks for the suggestions, and I did note those in the reviews as well. I was also looking at this laptop as well Lenovo Ideapad Flex 7-14 AMD wondering if you think this is a good laptop as well maybe? I read some of the reviews battery life seems to be mixed, but some are saying it's amazing. Upon reading it could also because of Windows updates, why people are complaining the CPU usage is so high so I'm not really worried about that either.
Might want to consider returning for something like this with upgradable ram for better performance for cheaper. I have the 3700u model and I installed an extra 16gb or ram and I can run just about everything at 720p. However I'm sure on your current system you could get games like over watch running as well.
Have a look at this one: https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Convertible-Touchscreen-Processor-Graphics/dp/B07PB5M8DS/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=14%2Binch%2Blaptop&amp;qid=1565720048&amp;s=gateway&amp;sr=8-4&amp;th=1
It seems to fit what you're looking for.
This one is the same model with different specs (lower specs but still good).

Hey, check out the Lenovo flex 14. 14 inch with Picasso Ryzen Zen+ mobile CPU so it's similar to the Envy 13 x360 but apparently also has upgradable RAM.
Link to Amazon reviews below which have teardown pics of the RAM slot:

Upgrade RAM to 16gb or 32gb and your done.
