Lenovo ThinkPad T460s $1488 (i5-6300U, 8GB, 256GB SSD, 14.1" FHD) ThinkPad P50s $1379 (i5-6300U, 8GB/500GB HDD, 15.6" FHD)

180
OZT460SOZP50S

Tell Bearosaurus that he is dreaming. Asked Lenovo more than a month ago to help out with our 10th birthday celebration and received the detail of deals yesterday. Wasn't as exciting as I have hoped.

Anyway, here they are:

ThinkPad T460s

  • Coupon: OZT460S
  • $1488 (which is exactly as last week's deal)
  • Intel Core i5-6300U
  • 8GB RAM
  • 256GB SSD OPAL
  • 14.1" FHD IPS
  • Windows 10

Deal from 4 weeks ago was much better. Still a nice configurable business grade light-weight laptop though.

ThinkPad P50s

  • Coupon: OZP50S
  • $1379
  • Intel core i5-6300U
  • 8GB RAM
  • 500GB 7200RPM HDD
  • NVIDIA Quadro M500M 2GB
  • 15.6" FHD IPS
  • Windows 10

My opinion on ThinkPad P50s is that it has an identity crisis. It wants the footprint of ThinkPad T560, but wants to pretend to be a workstation like P50 (without the s). So ended up with ULV CPU + Quadro graphics. $200 extra to get 3K IPS though for those who are thinking of this option.

Update: OzBargain staffs run exclusively Lenovo laptops and this is my 100th Lenovo deal here. My initial post was a bit negative (see revision for details), but was edited out.

    Bit of an anti-climax :(

      I know…

      Dell also said that they are sending me some deals 5 days ago. Still waiting and 15 minutes before 12PM in Sydney.

        Maybe ask Lenovo to bring back this deal? If they could afford to sell 40 of those last Friday (consciously adding 20 more stock), it means clearly they weren't losing money.
        Otherwise… goodwill opportunity missed.

        Dell should be able to smash that T460s price.

        I just spec'd up a Lat E5470 with i5-6440HQ/Win10Pro/16GB RAM/256GB M.2/FHD 14" and 3yr ProSupport for basically the same price.

        Edit: I should point out I won't be supplying these, so don't PM me about ordering one.

          That's what I'm thinking too - ideally want to stick with Thinkpads but Dell's pursuading me.

          If what you're saying is true (refurbished?):

          The 6440HQ in the Dell benchmarks (PassMark) 50% quicker than the 6300U in the Lenovo.

          Dell Windows 10 Pro vs Home for Lenovo.

          Dell 16GB vs 8GB for Lenovo

          @Janko:

          That's internal pricing so not publicly available, I was just curious.

          If you give them a call and ask them what they can do for you, you might have some luck getting something similar.

          Yeah, the specs are a lot better than the Lenovo's for the price.

          I haven't used a Latitude since I left my previous job 6.5 years ago, but I think ThinkPad T-series might be comparable to Latitude E7xxx rather than E5xxx. Overall I found Latitude E7xxx a lot more expensive than Lenovo's T or X-series, but (1) cheaper NBD warranty and might be better service as well (2) you can still pick up bargains in the Dell Outlet, whereas Lenovo does not have one.

    what a let down..

    looks like will not be buying a new laptop any time soon.. old one will do until a bargain comes along.

    Scotty we thank you for your efforts and congrats on the 100th Lenovo deal.

    Yeesh ozbargain. Cant top Whirlpool with the lenovo discounts sadly.

    Phew bit of a relief actually. I bought an X1C last week thanks to scottys free monitor code. Was just waiting to see if I'd have to make use of their price guarantee.

    Member Berries : Member when CentreCom sell T520 for $599 ("Essentially free if you can apply 50% Education Tax Refund for secondary students")? Before Lenovo jiggly jiggy with the keyboard layout and build quality.

    :-(
    I've got money burning in my pocket for a decent laptop that I can use for video editing.
    However, any processor with a 'U' at the end means I'm only improving my benchmark score by 25% and that's comparing it to my 5-year-old DELL.

    Have Laptops just become high-end web browsers.
    Do people actually do any work on them?

    I guess I'm going to have to join the gaming crowd if I want any decent specs.

    Congrats on 100 LENOVO Deals, though. That's quite an achievement.

      Thinkpads are not resource hogs. They never have been. They're designed to work and be durable (hopefully today this theory is still adhered too).

  •  

    Nice to see the T-Series atleast. Posting from my second T-Series right now ;-)

  •  

    Was hoping to get a thinkpad but unfortunately I will be flying off on the 7th of December, and the 6-9 business days shipping probably won't make it in time.
