    Costco is selling the Lenovo Flex 14 with an AMD Ryzen 7 3700U, 12 GB of RAM, and 512 GB NVMe SSD for $529.99 plus tax and shipping. This is a $170 discount off the original price. It's not carried in the warehouses so you would need to order online. The integrated RX Vega 10 GPU provides performance between the NVIDIA GeForce MX 150 and MX 250, so it's good for light gaming.

    I had bought one but I'm going to be returning it for several issues. "Flex" refers to the amount the chassis bends when you rest your palms on it to type. Mine is so bad that it actually makes a creaking noise on the left side. Battery life is terrible. I could barely get 3.5-4 hours when unplugged with the screen on its lowest level of brightness and wireless power turned down. Speaking of WiFi, the card Lenovo uses is garbage, with frequent disconnects no matter what driver was installed.
