Decent specs for anyone looking for an alternative gaming laptop that can be used for work/study also.
Price in title?
This is the ‘L340 Gaming’ which is different to the ‘L340’. If i were you i’d put the ‘gaming’ in the title
Not bad actually.
The dell g3 with slightly better spec for $899 is a much better deal.
but build quality and cooling is inferior in G3. you'll be throttling more.
Would be even better if it came with a screen ;)
I'll pass on Lenovo for now after this dying USB-C port debacle. The model in this deal isn't a Thinkpad and isn't on the list of models, but the way Lenovo are handling this I don't trust them to honour their warranty.
For those that don't know there is an issue with the hardware. Lenovo have released drivers to try to prevent the issue from happening but I've read that they only reduce the chance or made the ports work a while longer. Once the ports die, you have to replace the whole motherboard. Some people are suggesting Lenovo have released the drivers to push more of the machines to die out of warranty. Some people say they have already paid to have their machines fixed at their own expense prior to this announcement.
Be warned, this only has a single ram slot, so you can't upgrade it to dual channel.
