    First thing I noticed: it looks like 8GB RAM are soldered in and there is only one slot available to upgrade with a 8GB stick, so maximum is 16GB.
    Still no confirmation that this will have a quad core cpu.
    Also, one video on youtube mentioned that there is a choice between a 2.5" sized HDD/SSD or M.2 format.

    No mention of North America availability or pricing. Does this mean we won't see the 720 in the US or Canada? I notice that the 520 will be marketed here as the Lenovo Flex 5.

    Actually 24 GB, because you can use 16 GB SO-DIMM modules.

    All earlier leaks included the Quad-Core spec. Its pretty safe to say that it will have a Quad-Core CPUs. Also, notice the battery life estimates, with a U-Series CPU, this would be a much higher number (72 Wh is pretty big for a U-Series CPU, but just adequate for a HQ-CPU).

    Yes, 24GB. Can Lenovo limit the slot maximum, though?
    Looks like a 16GB is roughly double the price vs a 8GB stick, so pretty reasonable.
    You are also right about the battery life numbers that are listed on the official specs. These are too short to reflect a U cpu. So hopefully this model will get the HQ cpus.

    Theoretically, Lenovo could limit it, but they are never doing it like this. The CPU can do 64 GB, I think its safe to assume that it will accept 16 GB modules. Remains to be tested of course.

    Looks like the cpu is definitely quad core, or at least on the demo units they are showing now at MWC. Great news!

    Is Lenovo just making up numbers or something? On webpage, it says 9 hours for FHD but on that screenshot it says 10 hours.

    I'm so getting this, one without dGPU for extra battery life and eGPU for occasional gaming.

    Yes I see two numbers for FHD screen: either 9 or 10.
    At least for UHD display is 8 hours in both.
    There are so many variables that can determine these numbers. First of all what activity is done: video streaming (obviously what quality, what type of codec used); browsing, etc...
    My guess is if you are after the best battery life, pick an i5 with FHD screen and no dGPU. This version will probably cost the least, too. Only issue it will probably come with an HDD, so replace that with an SSD and you'll get the longest battery, probably 10 hours or more.
