I agree. I have one of these and it works better than expected for me. Over 2100 MB/s sequential read and over 2100 MB/s sequential write...

Although I have the E595 and not the E495, the only real differences are the lack of numeric keypad and smaller screen on the 495. Exactly...

Should be pretty good for light gaming. Depends what games of course, but it works well for me for light gaming.

I'd suggest contacting shopping express and asking them.

"Is it because my wifi card on the desktop is 11n ? Would changing to an AC card fix this?" In one word, yes. See this page for more...

I'd say there is no reason to not upgrade to 16gb, other than the cost. I would, and that's exactly what I did with my ThinkPad when I got...

"is intel 10thgen i5 bettern than AMD ryzen 5 4500U?" From that I've seen online, no, the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U is far better than the 10th gen...

I got as far as the "Shipping and payment screen" and it was still $799.50 Order Summary ThinkPad E495 Part number: 20NECTO1WW Quantity:1...

Picked one of these up for the oldest teenager here, who seems to be very happy with it so far. Thank you the the deal OP!

But any RAM or storage options on this page will be suitable: https://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/Lenovo/thinkpad-e595

I got the Crucial CT8G4SFS8266 8GB stick for my E595, so I can personally vouch for that being compatible. I got mine from CPL for $55, but...
03/02/2020 - 17:25
Yes, that's a good point. Heck, even 2x 4GB would be better than 1x 8GB, but yes, if you plan on using 32GB of RAM, best to get a 16GB...

Hi cv05, Yes, the E495 and E595 use the same card for bluetooth and wifi. You may be lucky, some people seem to have no trouble with what...

Because that is referring to a spinning platter hard disk drive in the internal 2.5" SATA drive bay. It comes with a 256GB NVMe M.2 SSD,...
02/02/2020 - 16:17
Yes, very easy. I'll copy and paste from a comment I left earlier about this for you... Much cheaper to DIY a RAM upgrade, and that doesn't...
02/02/2020 - 16:14
Not really, but it was more difficult than I expected to plug the tiny little connectors for the wifi and bluetooth antennas in - they...

The HP may have better battery life, but in pretty much every other way the E595 is better I'd say. * The R5 3500u is about the same,...

Have you installed all the updates from Lenovo, either by getting them directly from their web site, or by installing Lenovo Vantage and...
31/01/2020 - 13:18
The Intel will have far better battery life, and slightly better CPU performance. That laptop you linked to also has a larger SSD and a...

Much cheaper to DIY a RAM upgrade, and that doesn't affect warranty. It's also not difficult to do. All the screws holding the bottom cover...
31/01/2020 - 12:59
Yes, that's my understanding, screen size and number pad, oh and a smaller "chin" under the screen on the E595, which some seem to find...

My understanding is that the main differences between the Ryzen 5 3500u and the Ryzen 7 3700u is that the clock speeds are slightly higher...
31/01/2020 - 12:47
Oh absolutely, it wasn't important to me at all, but it may be for some and so I thought it was important to let people know. Heck, the web...
31/01/2020 - 12:32
Yes, it's better to use both ram slots, because then they can both be accessed at the same time by the Ryzen APU, which doubles the speed...

Here's a picture I just took with the camera: [Picture](https://1drv.ms/u/s!AlJj2Gv7LCQKgcJA9Y4uTNjD_UjXdg?e=3bFvZ7)

Oh, to add to what I said earlier, while this machine does come with a camera, it's only usable for something like skype if the quality of...
30/01/2020 - 23:37
Fair point, but if someone is going to watch Lenovos site for updates on a regular basis, I doubt they'd use Lenovo Vantage. For the rest...
30/01/2020 - 23:17
Normally I'd agree, but you don't want to miss out on firmware updates for things like the USB-C, the UEFI and so forth. This makes it easy...
