Lenovo Thinkpad 13 i5-6200U, 13.3" FHD, 4GB, 256GB SSD $949 Delivered

190
DEALS

Just noticed that the Thinkpad 13 is now back on sale. Similar deal to this and this, however this time it's $50 cheaper but only 4GB memory.

Since it has two RAM slots (very rare in ultrabooks!), you can easily add another 4GB to make it 8GB dual channel, or get 2x8GB for 16GB total. RAM type is DDR4-2133 SODIMM. 4GB DDR4 costs about $30 so it's actually cheaper than the previous deals.

    what does the sealed battery in the extra warranty mean?
    "2-Yr On-site + Sealed Battery "

    thanks in advance

      It means that if the battery fails to meet certain performance conditions in the two years in this case, they will come to you and replace it for free.

      They often go on sale, there's a model with i7 currently going for $1999. I still prefer the 13 because the RAM is soldered on the X1 and you can't upgrade it yourself. 16GB X1 is damn expensive!

      This sale starts tomorrow (Friday) at 9PM — i7-6500U, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 14.1" FHD for $1879 (currently $1999).

    You cant really remove the base cover without breaking some of the connection tabs. I did it super-carefully and it is pretty much impossible. Still goes back together fine if you break a few though.

      I did, without breaking the tabs :)

        wow … I am seriously surprised. nice work!

          Did you use guitar picks? The ones you get with phone replacement battery kits? If you don't have them, use expired/no value gift cards. Work just as well.
          I've replaced a Lenovo Yoga 460's internal SSD. Opened it up twice, there's heaps of connection tabs around the laptop as well on that.

    The TP13 is a good notebook for the price. I recommend spending $1K and upgrading every 12 mths, rather than spending $2K and upgrading every 2 or 3 years.

    Nice with the 1080p screen.

    I dropped in 16Gb RAM with an 850 EVO M2 SSD.

    Does not support NVMe M2 SSDs btw.

    What's the actual battery life like?

    Also of note, although officially the maximum RAM is 16GB, it appears that it can take up to 20GB, and possibly more, as per this review
