  • Why do all of the deals always have such low storage? 128gb is what you would expect from your phone.

    Edit: you can increase the storage, processor and memory. It bumps the price massively though. Anyone know if you can change the storage yourself and still maintain the warranty?

      This is a ThinkPad. You can just about do what you want and not affect the warranty. They even include field service manuals on the website for customer use.

      Lenovo have continued the IBM policy of letting you pull Thinkpads apart and service them yourself. Storage is deemed as being a "CRU" (customer replaceable unit).

      • I did exactly that for my Uni Thinkpad a couple of years ago. Did a DIY SSD and RAM upgrade myself, and had zero problems with warranty (had the display changed a few times due to a problem). Thinkpad service is pretty great as a 'business' product.

        (Unfortunately this model has soldered ram though)

    • Yes you can, on one of the livechats I asked and was advised that warranty would be voided for the storage only, that means you can do your own upgrade.

      I'd personally do that since there are better deals on computer storage on eBay from time to time. Do double-check with Lenovo livechat though.

    • add $100 to upgrade to 256gb ssd.

    was able to negotiate this for you guys

    You always bend over backwards for us Tightarse, I really hope you didn't have to trade away your innocence.

    • Couple more years with OZB and he will be LA. Thanks TA!

      • You always bend over backwards for us Tightarse, I really hope you didn't have to trade away your innocence.

        That usually involves bending over forwards.

    • you know that he gets a cut from anyone that uses the coupon right

      • What a load of rubbish! Say something sensible if you have to rather than demean those that try to do good.

        • Genuinely thought that was your job (and there is nothing wrong with that). So you just negotiate with sellers for good deals and receive no kickback/incentives at all? If this is the case I apologise and retract my comment.

        • @Your Friend: No point in repeating myself over and over again - I have a clear conscience - I get no kickbacks. If you choose to believe otherwise, contact the site moderators.

        • @tightarse: Okay I didn't realise it came up before, like I said I honestly thought that was your job. I have a new found respect for yourself and I apologise for my original comment.

        • @Your Friend: TA works for CashRewards, not Lenovo, hence the "third-party" badge, not "associated". He is also a respected long-time member on Ozbargain, and has been known to secure awesome deals for the Ozbargain community.

          You get a better deal through this post, but you can always try Lenovo livechat to see if you can score a better deal.

          By the way, your username does did not checkout before, I hope from now on it'd be more fitting.

        • Hi tightarse

          Any chance that you can have this code applied on the X1 gen 6 model that is currently on promotion?

      • Even if he did, I'd say he deserves it for negotiation on behalf of the community.

        • Yeah I was gonna say the same, if he got a cut I don't care. A good deal is a good deal, thanks for finding it for us.

  • Any chance we can get this sort of deal on the X1 Yoga (Gen 3)? :D

    Also does anybody know any stores in Perth that actually stock these? Would prefer to try before I buy…

  • FYI RAM is soldered on these, I know I have one, so make sure 8GB is enough. The SSD can be upgraded yourself.

    • You can order with 16GB if you upgrade the CPU to an i7, but of course it drives the price up a lot.

      And yes, no changing it later.

      • That's the dealbreaker for me. Have to pay $200 for a CPU I don't need just to open up the RAM upgrade.

  • Nice offer! I'm looking for a price point of roughly 1k but thinking it may be worthwhile to wait for tax time deals! anyone else thinking the same?

    Great post OP.

  • Has anyone found a way to configure this online for 16gb?

  • Would be great if the % saving can be transferred to a higher spec model

  • link is being ozbargained

  • Bought this when it first came out and highly recommend it. Keyboard types like a dream and the colours are amazing. Wasn't used to its lightweight coming from a 4kg beast and subsequently dropped it onto hard tiles; nothing happened. Thinking of buying an eGPU to take advantage of its quad core.

  • Great machine and great post TA. Would seriously consider this if I hadn't purchased my Thinkpad T580.

    Totally recommended if you're in the market for a 14" mobile workstation, with the current AMEX and CashRewards combo this is the best machine in the ultrabook sector, in terms of weight, battery life, build quality and don't forget the awesome award-winning keyboard.

    Damn, Lenovo should hire me as a sales rep.

  • I bought the top of the range i7,512ssd, 16gb wqhd 500 nits screen and 4g for $2511+3yr warranty for $300

  • Noob question but can I get an SSD and swap out the 128GB little one it comes with. the upgrade options seem too high - example upgrading from 128 to 512 costs $300 but this 512 SSD costs just $150 https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/366357. im guessing theres some speed specs that justify the difference

    • Yep exactly, the speed used in these is pretty darn fast from what reviews I read.

      You can do it yourself though if you want to.

  • Any guidance on the display options appreciated:

    14.0" FHD IPS - SELECTED
    14.0" FHD IPS Touch + $150.00
    14.0" WQHD IPS + $200.01
    14.0" WQHD Premium IPS + $300.00

    I get the extra $150 for touch but what's the advantage of the WQHD resolution and Premium IPS?

  • Thanks TA.I'm just planning to buy a X1 Carbon.

  • I bought the previous gen and am super happy with it. Upgraded the SSD to a Samsung 960 Pro 1tb and it's perfect.

  • Still $3.5k if you add decent specs

  • Just bought $50k worth of the i7 variety. Dammit :D


  • Lenovo deals on X1 carbon don't seem to be good as they used to be. I got mine for $1450 (retailed at $2200 at the time). Plus this included touch screen and same SSD size. Now I see that touch is an extra cost. And minimum storage should have increased to 256gb in these new models. I'm surprised with all the competition that they can get away with it!

  • Hey TA!
    Firstly thanks a lot for getting these epic deals for us!
    I was wondering if something for the T480s can be negotiated similar to the T460s deal a while back. Deal link
    I think it'll be very popular in the ozb community.
    A very happy T460s owner :)

  • The t460s was down from somewhere around 2k to 1k which was an epic bargain. What I was trying to say was if TA can negotiate the t480s down to around 1k

    • That was a 6th gen cpu when the 7th had been released.
      This is for the 8th gen which is very much current

  • I have the previous Gen of this notebook. The build is luxurious and tough, business style. The keyboard is the best there is on a notebook, even puts the keyboards on expensive "gaming" notebooks to shame. Also, if you want to have a real good laugh, go into JB and check out the latest Macbook's keyboard, it's actually worse than my $300 Dell ultrabook. Seriously, no joke, go check.

  • Says ships in 2-3 weeks, which actually works for me, as I can claim TRS. Does anyone know if Lenovo invoices on ship date or order date?

  • Is anyone else finding that the code doesn't work when you customise the spec?
