    It was working a minute ago, I have it added to my cart.

  •  

    It drives me mad that the standard ssd size in these mid to top tier laptops is still only 256gb. Due to the terrible broadband speeds in this country I've spent the last 2 weeks loading as much of my 150gb of photos as possible to the cloud because I have no space on my ssd anymore. I'm about 15gb in to the process lol.

    It costs them hardly anything to add another 256gb to these laptops but they charge us crazy add on prices for the pleasure.

      It's a laptop aimed at corporate customers - the intended use case is not to hold hundreds of gigs of photos.

      Most corporates want you storing as little data as possible locally. We have plenty of clients doing CTOs of these with even smaller (120GB) SSDs to discourage people filling them with music and other junk.

    •  

      I just had the T560 delivered this week, which I bought on the Christmas special. The 256GB SSD isn't an issue, not sure on the T460, but the T560 has space for another drive inside (either ssd or spindle), and also the DVD can be removed and a caddy fitted for another drive, caddy is about $6 on Ebay.

      Hope the T460 is as nice as the T560, believe only difference is screen size not chipset.

      I remember 14" fhd T460 (or was it E460) with discrete graphics and same specs was available for AUD888 during their boxing day sale with coupon code "deal". I ended up buying the E560 with hd520 for AUD699.

    •  

      Boxing day deals were a bit sus and not sure why they didnt put it during Boxing Day. Still not that late. Great price for a T series Laptop. For people who were thinking to get E series for a little less. Get this one !!

      •  

        On of the gov departments I support has hundreds of T460 and T560 …they are a business grade laptop.. great machines, even have user replaceable keyboards, undo the clearly identifiable screws under the laptop and keyboard comes off. Great for those coffee spills.

      Easy solution for you can be to hide this deal page for that user ;)

      Hi Scotty, I remembered you bought the T460s if I am not wrong. How is the battery life like? A lot of reviews say it has terrible battery life (up to 5hr max). Cheers

      •  

        No I didn't end up buying T460s. From the reviews the i7 has terrible battery but i5's are fine.

    I think the $1049 variant is a far better deal for just $49 extra. You get the latest CPU and bonus Graphics card

        Could you explain the difference

        • +1 vote

          My T450 is a better build quality than my E470.
          It's quite noticeable in fact.

        •  

          Agreed. E series are cost-cut versions of ThinkPads which are thicker, made of lower quality plastics and are less durable. Terrible hinges on the Edge series especially, some Edges have electrical shorting issues.

          @Cunningham:

          My work laptop (T) get tossed around a fair bit, and not even a ding on it. The metal cage does its work well.

          The personal laptop (E) had a hairline of white spot running down the screen, but still working fine, coming up to 3 years now. Never tossed it around, only stuffed into a laptop bag full of other things…

          @Yuri Lowell:

          well put it another way, if the Lenovo made cars, the E-series is your average Toyota Yaris or Corolla, with a range of engine options from 1.1 litre to 2 liter engine. It gets you from Point A to Point B. Maybe slowly or perhaps quickly, depending on whether you picked the Sport upgrades or not. It's a pretty decent car but you have to drive gently and service it well.

          T series would be the much more durable Toyota Hilux workhorse ute that you can run kangaroos over with in the outback desert and still end up with a working car. It's got a sturdy fender and a bull bar that can take some abuse and punishment. The T-series would be it, with it's magnesium alloy roll-cage.

          In terms of speed both cars could run just as fast, and they cost you $1000 dollars, but which one would you prefer? (style and aesthetics aside)

          @Yuri Lowell: specs dont mean anything. E crap is less durable, infamous for fan error or overheating, cheap plastic, lower quality. and the different in price (E vs T) is not that sweet to sacrifice some good things T series have, like 250$ on deals. at the end of the day, E series are still low end.

          No he didn't. Did he?

        I've dropped many T series laptops at work and at home (1.5m onto concrete last week for my trusty ol T400
        !!) and they just keep going - tuff az.

        I buy them pretty much on this quality alone.

  • +5 votes

    These weight less than 1.5KG IMO.
    I have supplied quite a few of these recently and they are my favorite business Ultrabook of 2016.
    Really light for a very solid machine, upgradable RAM and SSD too!
    Great value at these specs.

      On the T460S site it says that the iGPU model weighs 1.36 kg and the 'discrete' 930M (only for i5-6300u, and imo not even a dgpu) weighs 1.50kg.
      Is the battery life comparable to the XPS 13?

      • +3 votes

        Yes it's the 1.36kg model, and the battery life would be a bit shorter comparing to XPS 13 Full HD model.

  •  

    awesome! What's battery life like? I'm holding onto my four year old i7 t420, it's starting to fall apart but it's still an incredibly reliable laptop. This is very tempting

    •  

      Your 4 year old T420 is "starting to fall apart" … OMG! Is 4 years the average life expectancy for a Lenovo Enterprise laptop?

      •  

        my 11yro T43 still running till last year, just the fan stopped working , and too lazy to get the replaced.

      • +2 votes

        The glue or clip has come off the left hinge which makes it tricky to open/close. This laptop has been used probably 330/365 days for the past 4 years, transported to and from uni, and used and bashed around heaps during trips in a non-protected backpack, plus living three months in 100% humidity rainforest. Nothing wrong with its internals.

        Also, it was bought as a refurb to begin with.

  •  

    bloody lenovo selling the same thing on their website is much cheaper than distributor, this machine is selling $1400 only different is 3 yrs warranty.

  •  

    Main link worked for a bit but then failed when you try to 'add to cart'

    I'm tempted to get this. Is the bad battery life only for the model with the separate GPU or does even the integrated GPU model have a 3hr battery life only?!

    This, or a ThinkPad 13 i5 with FHD, 8GB memory and 256GB SSD M.2 for an extra $149? Admittedly there is a much bigger saving on the T460s.

    What's the screen like on these? I had a look at a Thinkpad 13 and the anti-glare layer on the screen make it look very blurry. Older Thinkpads used to have great matte displays.

      Yeah I need a laptop for uni too but the battery life is a bit concerning - can anyone comment?

        Do note, almost all university libraries/study spaces will have power sockets at each desk. And, chargers for these ultrabook notebooks are really light to chuck into your bag. :)

          Yeah thanks for bringing it up - turns out tbh I don't need as much battery life as I initially thought.

    For those also interested in the battery life, this page has a review of the T460 and compares it in various places to the T460s variant.

    http://www.laptopmag.com/reviews/laptops/lenovo-thinkpad-t46...

    "Trust us; you want the high-capacity, 6-cell (72 watt hour) battery. With the larger unit onboard, the ThinkPad T460 lasted a strong 17 hours and 4 minutes on the Laptop Mag Battery test, which involves continuous surfing over Wi-Fi at 100 nits of brightness. … The T460's 6-cell battery runtime is way ahead of the thin-and-light laptop category average (8:06). … The ThinkPad T460s and its sealed-in battery managed only 7 hours and 21 minutes."

    However, real world commentary on reddit indicates 5-6 hours is a best expectation for battery life.

    Would anyone know how to select the NVIDIA GeForce® 930M variant? I've selected the Core i5-6300U but the option doesn't seem to appear..

  •  

    What is the multi-touch display (extra $150) like on these? Probably not necessary, though curious.

    This laptop has a lot of tempting extras, like built-in 4G.

  •  

    Most people need to understand how the "new" intel power saving works, which make a big different on user's experience. If you use this laptop at CPU full speed and 75% screen brightness, you will only get 3 hrs max battery run time. But if you only continue typing on a excel form with 50% brightness, nothing more app running in the background except those comes with Win10, then you can get 10 hrs run time. In the real life most likely user just getting little longer run time with your old Intel U CPU laptop, if you want long run time, a bigger power pack is the must. Be honest, this newer Intel CPU so called power saving future is kind of joke, look like only more aggressive frequency downgrade.

    ok bit the bullet and bought two of them - 1 for mum and 1 for dad :)

    I have a T450s for Uni, purchased with 3 year extended warranty. The lid is not as durable as, say the T430, as I had my screen replaced three times due to various defects caused by pressure on the lid (e.g. white spot pressure marks). I've also had the keyboard replaced, because a single keycap broke. In short, the "Thinkpad" still has its flaws. Hopefully the T460s has an improved build, particularly with the lid!

    Uni is getting closer and I need make up my mind on a laptop, have been checking every morning and night for a tightarse deal. This looks very good but I just have issues spending money on a laptop knowing I can build a PC with far better specs for less. People in the thread seem to keep talking about how the build quality of this model is very good but I really wanted to get a laptop under $500. I had set my sights on a Lenovo B4130 Education Notebook (80LF000TAU), where I would up the RAM ($36) and swap out the optical drive for an SSD($90) to run the operating system on. I had seen Warehouse1 have it as low as $269 and while I was doing my research on the laptop the price went up. I know the Intel Celeron N3050 processor is poor but don't see how it couldn't handle just being used for MS Office and web browsing. Am I dreaming thinking I can buy a cheap laptop and up the RAM and run the OS on an SSD and think it will work well? Is it just a matter of you get what you pay for with laptops? Also why is the 80LF00TAU not on lenovo.com?
