  • Q: What comes in a box? 15" model  (3 Answers)

    By YanaUnova 

    • Best answerA US power charger that has a USB-C plugin instead of the usual AC adapter comes in the box. You also get an S-pen removal tool with a couple extra tips, a USB-A to USB-C adapter and an eject tool for accessing the SDcard tray. The USA version of this laptop apparently doesn't come with the HDMI to USB-C adapter or the white wireless mouse like the Korean version does, which kinda made me sad. Still a beautiful 2 in 1 notebook.

  • Q: Can Flex SSD upgraded later or when you buy?  (1 Answer)

    By Bruce 

    • Best answerThe NVME SSD can be upgraded after you purchase it by opening up the laptop. I'm going to upgrade my 15" Flex's SSD to a 2 TB SSD from the 512 GB SSD that came with it.

  • Q: Does this (Flex 15.6) have 1 or 2 SSD slots? I see the Ion 15.6" GB has 2 SSD slots...  (1 Answer)

    By njweb 

    • Best answerIt only has 1 SSD slot, the 15.6" version at least. I just got done upgrading the 512 GB SSD to a 2 TB SSD and it's an even better laptop now! I'd assume the 13" has the same amount of slots. The Ion must have a different motherboard. The Ion only has 1 of 2 RAM slots soldered in as well so you can stick in another RAM stick if you want to.

  • Q: Can you play the PC version of Call of Duty Modern Warfare on something like this?  (2 Answers)

    By garrison36 

    • Best answerYou can but it will be at low graphics. This laptop does not have a dedicated GPU and uses the graphics built into the CPU. You can add an external GPU to boost performance but if your looking for a laptop for gaming this isn't really the one you would want.

  • Q: Does it have USB ports or just the thunderbolt ports?  (2 Answers)

    By Arianna 

    • Best answerThis just has 2 Thunderbolt ports and 1 regular USB-C port and does not have any "standard" USB-A ports. It does come with 1 USB-A to USB-C adapter in the box when you buy it, so that helps. You will need to purchase more adapters or be mindful to get other devices or cables that use USB-C connectors in the future. USB-C is the new standard so more and more devices will be ditching the old "standard" USB-A ports especially to keep new laptops slim.

    • Best answerI don't have the device, but I have heard that if you go though the installation process for all of the initial updates it is supposed to perform better. You can try updating the operating system, BIOS and any apps from the Windows 10 store your have installed on your machine. This should improve the sound quality and some other things on it as well. I have heard people are getting around 10 or so hours, so hopefully that should help at least a bit. The advertised 20 hours for the 13 inch model and 19 hours for the 15 inch version are likely when they are idle since other manufacturers often do the same thing. Another thing you can try is turning off location services and Bluetooth in addition to decreasing the brightness of the screen. These features are known to consume battery life quickly, especially on touch screen laptops. Good luck.

  • Q: Can you download apps and play games like you can on the tab s6 tablet?  (2 Answers)

    By Doug 

    • Best answerYes you can download apps and games but this runs Windows rather than Android. There is the Microsoft store and you can install anything else that you normally can on a Windows machine. This won't be able to play high end games as it has on board graphics but the same would apply to a tablet as well.

  • Q: How good is the palm rejection on this device? I am curious about the stylus and how it interacts with the screen.  (1 Answer)

    By BlueDragon 

    • Best answerI do have some difficulty with palm rejection, but mostly on the edges since the trackpad is large. The pad is quick to turn on and off, so there is always that option if using the touchscreen more (or external mouse). The stylus interacts well and allows precise placements. The soft tip does contact the screen, but shouldnt scratch. Comes with 2 spare tips of different colors. Overall, love the machine. Quick. Not big 3d gaming capability, but crisp and clear and bright.

  • Q: How much it costs to upgrade to 2TB SSD lot for this laptop using bestbuy?  (1 Answer)

    By Samg 

    • Best answerIf you get a Samsung solid state drive and manually insert it into the device it might cost you around $200-250 from what I see available online. There are Samsung drives that are less than or equal to 2TB of storage on Best Buy's website. This is assuming you follow the instructions of a video tutorial on YouTube and install the component yourself, thus saving some time and money in the process. Good luck.
