    OP. any chance the e495 deal is also making a comeback? i had to cancel my previous order after realising the code was not successfully accepted and was charged the amount pre discount.

    Hi TA,

    Possible to get deals on the Legion/gaming laptops pls?

  •  

    Just got mine from the last order. Need to upgrade the disk to 500+ gb. Is it hard to replace on this model? Any recommendations on which hdd to buy?

    • +1 vote

      Very easy to do. This video shows you how to remove the bottom and the SATA HDD at the 5:25 mark. The laptop in the video is the previous model but it'll still be the same.

      If you're willing to spend a little bit extra perhaps get a 2.5" 500GB-1TB SSD? E.g. this or this.

      •  

        Thanks. What’s the benefits of getting a 2.5” instead of m.2 ? Do you mean get the 2.5” and sell the m2?

        • -1 vote

          The laptop has both M.2 and SATA. M.2 is a lot faster than SATA.

          • +2 votes

            @Clear: No it isn't.

            M.2 is just the form factor.
            (It's actually the specification for internally mounted expansion cards and associated connectors.)

            M.2 drives can come in SATA versions and NVMe versions, which describes the bus they use to communicate with the other PC components.

            SATA M.2 SSD drives and 2.5” SATA SSDs operate at virtually identical speeds because they use the same communication bus.

            NVMe M.2’s on the other hand, definitely do not as they use the PCI-E bus.

              @spaceflight: There is always a Sheldon in every post. The M.2 in this laptop as I said is faster.

                I agree with the third definition. Especially the part that says

                Thee most amazing guy you will ever talk to. Knows what he want's from life and gives really good advice
                https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Sheldon&amp=...

                Now.

                The M.2 in this laptop as I said is faster.

                No what you said is

                The laptop has both M.2 and SATA

                Which it does, but these are connection types.

                And

                M.2 is a lot faster than SATA.

                Which is incorrect and can confuse someone asking what’s the benefits of getting a 2.5” instead of m.2.

                Especially when they already have the laptop so they are not looking at the 256GB SSD M.2 PCIe option (which is also less than the 500+ GB they want). They want to upgrade what they already have.

                I would have expected more than misleading advice and pretty negs from a store rep.

                  @Clear: Yeah when people take things out of context and change the subject by incorrectly telling someone that "M.2 is a lot faster than SATA" when they have asked how to buy a new HDD to upgrade the HDD in their existing laptop and then trying to justify misleading them by saying that you were taking about the dive that the laptop in this deal is sent with will do that.

                  •  

                    @spaceflight: The context starts at joshua's comment and we were specifically talking about the SATA and M.2 in his laptop. My statement that the M.2 is faster is correct in the context of his laptop as it's NVMe as per the specifications.

                    Instead you pulled a Sheldon by twisting it into 'M.2 in general is faster than SATA' when that was not the case for the reasons you mentioned: M.2 SATA and M.2 PCIe.

                    But that's me done here so I'll just move on. I hope you can do the same.

                      My statement that the M.2 is faster is correct in the context of his laptop.

                      No it's not.

                      M.2 is just a specification.

                      M.2 can support both sata and nvme.

                      What happens when Joshua goes and buys a sata m.2 drive? It might work in the laptop if it also supports sata m.2 drives.
                      Or it won't work and Joshua has wasted money on an incompatible dive.

                      Instead you pulled a Sheldon by twisting it into 'M.2 in general is faster than SATA'

                      That's what you said.
                      And remember that Sheldon's give really good advice.

                      "The laptop has both M.2 and SATA. M.2 is a lot faster than SATA."

                      I corrected you so that Joshua doesn't buy the wrong drive.

                      M.2 is not faster than sata.
                      PCI-E m.2 is faster than sata.
                      You didn't say that so someone who does not know much about competes could buy the wrong or incompatible dive. That's why I corrected you, I don't know why you are so upset that I tried to stop someone buying the wrong thing!

                      Accusing me of trolling (edit I see you took that it while I was writing a reply) just shows you aren't willing to accept that you could have mislead people.

                          The dive that the laptop in this deal comes with is irrelevant to someone who wants to upgrade the disk to 500+ gb and also wants to know if it is hard to replace on this model. Do you think that maybe they do not know there are different types of M.2 drives?

                          Saying M.2 is faster is still wrong. M.2 is the specification and plug, it doesn't set the speed.

                          It's the same as saying SATA is faster because a SATA SSD is faster than a SATA mechanical HDD.

    Also got this as part of the last deal - ripper laptop!

    But having trouble connecting a monitor to the hdmi port, have tried everything ive searched on google and to no avail - anyone got any ideas?

    •  

      What exactly happens when you connect the monitor to the HDMI port?

      •  

        It an older VGA monitor which i am using an adapter, nothing happens, it cant detect the monitor at all.

        I've updated all the drivers and still nothing…
        :(

        Could be the adapter, as the cable is fine when i used it on a different laptop.

        Have purchased a new DVI-D to HDMI cable so hopefully that works…

        •  

          Yeah fair enough. Does the adaptor work with any other computers or monitors? If not maybe the problem is it's an adaptor and not a converter.

      Have you tried updating the graphics drivers? Not the ones from Lenovo, but directly from AMD itself.

      Otherwise, try a different HDMI cable (this may sound ridiculously simple, but when previously i was building a new computer, i couldn't get the monitor to work and thought it could be adapter or need new monitor, turned out to be the cable. The connector looks new and fine and i just didn't think of it).

      (not really smarter than anyone here, but just happened that I've read previous comments/manual before =) )
      You can upgrade and run dual channel, although refer to the manual (of which the link is also in previous deal posts), since to open the access of the components had been more "hassle-y" due to the nee design of the E49x and E59x series.

      I've done so for mine that I bought last week.

      DDR4 2400Mhz max (CPU doesn't support more).

      I bought 2 x 2666Mhz sticks as it was the same price on Newegg and it is recognized as 2400Mhz by the laptop.

      It actually comes with an 8GB 2666Mhz stick.

    I bought it during last deal. I added a 8gb ram and a Samsung 1tb 2.5" ssd. Both are working well.

  •  

    Buy another 8GB stick of RAM from your local PC shop for ~$80 and chuck in a 2.5" 2TB HDD or 500GB SSD in the spare drive bay for another ~$80 and you've got yourself a stronger performer for ~$860 after cashback.

      This won't void the warranty? (Just checking)

      • +1 vote

        No, as long as you don't break anything. You're simply adding in 2 extra pieces of hardware into spare slots designed to take that hardware. You're not modifying any existing hardware.
        Even if there's a "warranty void" sticker covering one of the screws this does not in itself void warranty, it simply lets them know you've opened it up so they will look extra hard for anything that's been damaged.

        • +1 vote

          They used to reject warranty claims if stickers have been tampered with. I used to work at a distributor and it was the first thing we had to inspect.

          But a ruling in a US court recently made that illegal. I am not sure if that applies in the land of Oz though. If someone knows for sure, please confirm if it is the same here.

          • +1 vote

            @lostn: ACCC law overrides any company policy. It is not reasonable to throw out warranty just because someone opened up the cover and added another stick of RAM. I would fight this very hard if they tried that one on me.
            Unlike the US, we don't need to spell everything out to the Nth degree. There is a large degree of "reasonable" logic applied in ACCC decision making. Hence why they do not specify what a "reasonable" warranty duration should even be.

              Well in the case of a laptop, they would never put a seal to forbid you from opening it to upgrade the RAM.

              It would be mainly for devices like a console or mechanical HDD.

    current comp is a 5yrs old dying dell i5 which is struggling to even boot, and my HP g5 lappy is unfortunately work issue who dont take kindly to piracy so need something in between for home use.

      Create backup media with the preinstalled Lenovo backup and recovery app.

      Swap out the HDD, boot the media you just created and restore factory image.

    •  

      Why would you though? There is a slot for a second drive if you need more storage.

    Got one of these the last time it was posted battery life is pretty terrible, at best 3 hours watching a 1080P movie from a USB and i was running it into a TV so the screen was off! also i have noticed that the WIFI coming out of sleep mode takes a while to connect back up.

    •  

      AMD CPUs are not good at power management when idle (meaning not under load). Unless you're a gamer or do a lot of encoding, most of your work is going to be at idle. Intel have a lot more experience with this and have it down to a science, so on average Intel laptops have better battery life than AMD.

      Additionally, this unit has a 45Wh battery compared to an XPS 15 97Wh. The Thinkpad E series would be comparable to the Dell Inspiron series, which also have smaller batteries but are design to have expandable 2.5" HDD bay.

      •  

        Do you have a source for that statement about powe management? I'm not very knowledgeable on the laptop CPU scene. Do you know how the integrated graphics compare as well?

        I think I'll wait for a 15.6in version of last week's E490/495, with the dGPU and larger storage.

        • +1 vote

          Everyone who's used them can tell you this. Check reddit.

          AMD have not been a major player in the laptop market historically. It's been mainly Intel and for some years they were really your only option. This is beginning to change now, but Intel have been in the game a lot longer and do power management better.

          Unless you need like a source that fit for the bibliography of your thesis.

          I don't know how the iGPU compares, sorry. I think it's disappointing to have an iGPU in a 15" laptop that isn't particularly thin. But for this price, you take what you can get.

  •  

    My 495 got delivered on Thursday. Worked fine first day, second day it's busted. Seems to be a screen issue because I'm seeing some faint outlines after booting. Possibly just bad luck but seems dodgey.

      Damn. That 15 looks like a good deal with the dedicated graphics. I purchased the Lenovo, but I probably would have went with this instead.

      EDIT: Actually, not too upset about it. The Inspiron doesn't have USB-C charging.

      •  

        That dedicated graphics card (Radeon 520) is worse than the integrated Vega 8. So one does not miss out on anything by not getting it.
