  • Could we get some deals on the T or X series?

    • Yup also looking for an XPS13 equivalent laptop!

      • Ew, I contract for Dell. XPS are the overheating kings. Terrible thermal design which hasn't changed in years, I wouldn't buy one of these machines.

        • What would you recommend for a similar product? Looking for an ultrabook with basic gaming capability

          I read the batteries can overheat and Dell were pretty ordinary about warranty claims.

    • T series? Pewdiepie would like a word.

    • Yes, X Carbon would be great!

    • T Series would be awesome

    • Wait until the 10th gen Intel CPUs are mainstreamed - they’re already being seen in the XPX range. Development of the next X and T models with these parts is probably in the final stages, which means they’ll be slashing prices strategically across the current lines in the next four or so weeks.

      They usually do ‘early adopter’ deals for new laptops on the first couple of weeks after release.

      • Nah best to wait for the 11th gen, will be much better. But once we get there it’ll be better to wait for the 12th gen, they’ll be even better!

  • I would buy this if I didn't buy the lenovo legion Y7000 from ebay.
    How much extra for 16gb RAM and 512gb ssd?

  • not a good deal one month ago I remember we hav same deal price around 14XX

    • 17" vs 15". I'd say this is a very good deal.

      • wats the diff between these 2 apart from a larger screen

        • You're getting 28% more screen real estate for $100 extra. That's the difference.

          Why does this make it not a good deal? Do you expect 70" televisions to be the same price as smaller ones with the same specs?

  • any deals on the 15" ?

  • 17.3"! Desktop replacement territory!
    Grab a 1TB or 2TB Nvme SSD from Futu + second 8GB stick of RAM and it'll be a very nice gaming machine (Games take a lot of space..)

  • too big can't bring it into the lecture hall :(

  • Are there any variations with 16gb RAM, that's the only other thing i'd want but its almost perfection

  • Can this play Kingdom Come Deliverence comfortably on ultra settings?

  • TA any chance a 15"/lighter version may also go on sale?

  • @tightarse please do one for the L930 Yoga next. TIA.

  • Whats the thermals like on these?

  • So, will I get an iPhone 11 Pro Max or this beast? 🤔

    • Which one will you use more? I personally don't mind spending a bit more on a good phone as I use it more often than my home laptop and so on.
      That's how I justify paying so much for an iPhone anyway :-)

  • any deals that come with Caviar?

  • Wow this is a pretty good deal for 17". But I can't justify $1500 on a gaming laptop. Would be nice to see other deals on other models around the $1k mark

    • Then it will be a crappy machine. Gaming machines have always cost a lot. The mid range Alienware are 2500+. A good portable laptop obviously not made for gaming will set you back at least $1500. Gaming machines always cost more as they do more then those types of machines.

      • I don't mind. I paid $700 for a 15.6" , some 4-core amd, gtx 950 few years ago. Still using it to this day.
        If it costs more, then I would rather forfeit the portability and start looking at a new Desktop PC

        • Neat, if you're not moving, a desktop will serve you much better considering most of the Graphics Cards suffer a 25% performance drop when they're re-designed for Mobile Applications such as laptops.

          • @Gorian4: Yeah, and the upgrade ability for new GPUs, extra HDDs etc.
            But at the end of the day, small form factor and portability is a luxury I'm happy to give up on for better value for $

    • Macca's Monopoly are giving this exact model away. $1000 worth of Macca's should do it.

  • Would love a deal on the new C940 FHD :)

  • Whats the battery life like on these?
    Edit: 57Wh - Up to 5 hours. I would have thought a larger chassis size would allow them to squeeze in a larger battery… :[

  • I would love to see similar deals for Carbon X. Would jump at a heartbeat

  • so comparing with this msi, https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/481277
    lenovo: almost $500 more, better proc, better gpu, 0.5 kg heavier bigger unit
    msi: bigger ssd, slimmer lighter, better battery life

    lenovo wins?

  • Is this any good for video editing?

  • Which one is better this one or


    The price is kinda the same but y7000 comes with 512 SSD and 2x 8GB DDR

    Does y7000 have thermal issue?

  • Does this one have a very noisy fan? Apparently they can give people headaches…

  • 8gb of ram in a descent i7 'gaming' laptop… what is this, 2016?

    • Yeah its a bit of an odd spec as 256GB is also very light on for a gaming laptop and lets face it who wants to have anything to do with regular HDD's unless you are video editing, downloading heaps as they are so slow.

      Fortunately, ddr4 is pretty reasonable these days and a few 20% codes on ebay around to upgrade storage and RAM which makes it a a very nice laptop well under 2K.

      • true and both are so cheap when you are lenovo and buying them in bulk… then again, its probably a ploy to get people interested then get the upgrade $s

  • Just a question re delivery on this item, is it 3-4 weeks or within 2 days? I assume since it's as/is its after the deal expires?

    This looks like a great deal with the addition of another 8gb 2666 stick ($53.52) and whatever HDD you go for..I recently purchased a 1TB MB for under $160 for my new desktop and it's awesome as 256isn't the best but will go great in my mac air for 2x storage boost.
