  • This is an Employee Purchase Program offer, so you have to know somebody from either IBM or Lenovo to get it. In case the poster isn't one, then let me know. I can help.

    That's a damn good deal.

    • Hi Zzyss,

      Am interested in getting this and you hinted u "know" somebody on the inside… What is required to get this deal??


  • SO what does that mean for the general OzBargain userbase??
    Is this not a viable deal??
    If it is, I'm sure many will take it up!!

    • It means that if you want to take it up, you have to know an IBM or Lenovo employee -cough- hehehehe…

      • Your my friend zzyss :) I'm so tempted by this!

        EDIT: Just noticed this deal is available to non friends but at $1299

        • 1,299 New Zealand dollars = 1,151.41 Australian dollars
          Go for it!

  • The $1,199 deal is not actually limited to employees of IBM or Lenovo. It is for Lenovo Affinity Purchase Program.

    The Lenovo Affinity Program is a discount purchase program made available to employees, students and members of participating organisations - it's your opportunity to take advantage of great prices on the best engineered PCs, from the makers of the famous ThinkPad notebooks.

    Similar to Dell's EPP and Apple's EDU discount I guess. Lenovo Affinity Program members get 15% off discount on all web-price. You might wish to check your employer or your school whether they have been enroled in this program. Otherwise, $1,299 is not too bad either (+ 5% from MoneyBackCo).

  • On some other webpage it says there is a 3yr service warranty but no fingerprint reader. Can anyone confirm that the specs above are correct?

    Anyway great deal. I got a thinkpad with similar specs for $1430 but would have prefered i think this one! No buyers remorse though… a very well built laptop!

  • Looks good, pity it doesn't come with a DVD burner. And has anyone else noticed that the prices on the 'Customise' page for this model are in NZ dollars?

    • It's in Aussie dollars for me. Maybe you have set your location to NZ somehow?
