    I'm not going to waste my time looking back through this thread, but i'll just say - there was a lot of posts early on talking about how all these cheap AMD laptops just have soldered memory. So I think it was a useful contribution when it was noted that this laptop in fact does have a slot which can be used to add more RAM.

Michael isn't stupid - he likely did his research and deliberately bought one of the few examples of a budget laptop that supports dual channel. Since he's mostly using it for benchmarks, 8GB isn't a problem for him, but it isn't enough for a lot of people these days (remember, it is shared with the GPU) and it's not exactly acceptable to expect people to upgrade their RAM on a brand new device.
    I should remind you too that availability can be a problem, so just because a model exists and is in stock in a particular store, doesn't mean just anyone can get their hands on it. What about other countries? What about people who need a different keyboard layout? You're so obsessed about proving me wrong that you just ignore all other conditions just because there's a couple exceptions. So when it's your cash being spent, are you fine with just settling with whatever is available, even if it doesn't check all your boxes? For many people, this laptop is perfectly adequate. It's not for everyone, and the problem with that is there's not many alternatives to choose from. Get a damn grip on reality.

    If you were to say I'm exaggerating the rarity of new dual channel and/or dual DIMM budget laptops, I would accept that. But there is no doubt whatsoever that getting one in stock is getting increasingly difficult.
    Now really, think about it: does the above statement warrant your conniption? Do you have a problem keeping friends or getting invited to parties, because everyone finds the way you over-react to be insufferable? Note how I never responded to your post here:

    I didn't respond because at the time, you weren't losing your composure and I acknowledge there are some exceptions. Then, you got needlessly antagonistic and now you've dug yourself in this hole where you just look like an asshole, because you were taking things way too literally.

    Still available at the same place Michael got it: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Lenovo-Id...3NUS/773741305

    Ah.......so that's why 5500U is being sold for such good prices right now in India. Looked at Amazon India and there were laptops with nice specs for decent prices?!

    Too bad AMDs Linux support is so crappy. Otherwise that would have been a great deal.

    Actually I pretty much did, but you're so desperate to prove me wrong that you're pulling the stupid literalism argument.
    When you do the lottery, how do you describe your chances of winning? Most would say "rare". What does the lottery depend on? Luck.
    I said "Good luck getting a new (as in, released recently) Lenovo for $500 with RAM slots, let alone two."
    Anyone with half a brain knows that could be briefly paraphrased as "new Lenovos for $500 with 2x RAM slots are rare".

    Haha well that speaks highly of your priorities, eh?

    BTW, you've been on these forums long enough to know it's annoying to double-post. Speaking of being here a long time, I don't know what's gotten into you, because this is the first time I recall you've been such a little bitch (at least against me) over something so mundane. You used to be somewhat reasonable. Now you're just a more angry starshipeleven.
