    If only it could be configured with a touchscreen. :(

    •  

      Very true, once you use a laptop with a touchscreen you can't go back to a regular laptop that doesn't have one. Decent specs though on the E14 for the price despite that.

        What? I despise touchscreens on laptops. For starters, it makes the whole thing heavier because you need a digitiser on top of your LCD panel. Then you have to deal with the smudges and gorilla arm. Unless the touchscreen is kitted out for stylus usage for multimedia production applications, it's often an unused gimmick that is easily surpassed by a mouse in terms of user input. The only reason I ever suggest a touchsreen is when you need pen input.

          Not sure about you, but a mere ~90g isn't a big deal to me when the laptop weighs 1,690g.

          Then you have to deal with the smudges and gorilla arm.

          Oh no, how can anybody deal with using tablets and phones?

          Unless the touchscreen is kitted out for stylus usage for multimedia production applications, it's often an unused gimmick that is easily surpassed by a mouse in terms of user input.

          Evidently you haven't discovered how much quicker a touchscreen can be when it comes to certain user inputs, compared to a mouse or touchpad. Some power users find it much quicker to simply tap an on-screen element rather than move their hands from the keyboard to the touchpad or mouse, moving the cursor to the element, then clicking.

          But that's the beauty of the PC platform. Not everything has to be made just to suit one person's preferences. If you despise, or don't know or don't want to know how to take advantage of touchscreens, you don't have to buy a laptop with one. Meanwhile people who have realised that touchscreens aren't an 'often unused gimmick' will go for models that do have them.

          Its actually really easy to flick through web pages when you have a touch screen on a laptop, and heavy? the digitiser barely adds 10-20 grams…

          instead of moving the mouse to do anything you just tap, so easy, great for CAD when you are browsing through the menu ribbon and selecting options with one hand and orienting the part with a mouse with the other, very productive when you get the hang of it.

          What? I despise touchscreens on laptops.

          Have to disagree, I would never buy a laptop/convertible without out a touch screen. Every time I try and fix stuff for friends with no touch screen I end up flicking and selecting stuff all the time on screen because it's just the best way to navigate much of the stuff I do.

    I must be the only one who's never heard of an RX640….

    Good deal if you can wait for 6-8 weeks.

  •  

    The performance of the RX 640 is slightly slower than the RX 550 desktop GPU

    Delivery has been slow
    Ordered a laptop 31/1 with no sign of it being shipped yet
    Lenovo say it’s due to Coronavirus and extended lunar new year period

  •  

    Does anyone have some information on battery life? How long does it last under normal use (using Wi-Fi for browsing the net, watching youtube or playing movies (stored on the local HDD) etc at medium brightness, no gaming and some word processing). Will it comfortably last over 5 hrs or more?

    • +1 vote

      Probably; notebook check tested the ThinBook 15 with a 10th gen CPU and a 45 Wh battery and got 6h 46m in their WiFi test and 7h on their local video test.

    Pretty meh. High CPU and SSD (great), but low ram and not really a gaming worthy graphics card.
    Any old thing with a 1060 would be better for gaming at the same price point, and any 16gb ram machine better for productivity.

    The UK ThinkPad E14 has a 1 TB SDD option but the Australian ThinkPad E14 only goes up to 512 GB SSD! Boo!

  •  

    The delivery time is a killer. Please make deal when things are back to normal in 3-4 months time

  •  

    Good amount of discount for a relatively "new" E-series machine, especially if you need to go Intel for the WiFi or whatever other requirements as reasons.

    However looking at the spec of the discrete GPU and what the i7-10510U is (4 cores 14nm+++ part, not much performance difference i.e. not much of an upgrade if you've got a 14nm+ or 14nm++ part), the Ryzen 4000 series Mobile APU will be at a much better value package proposition to this. Although I sincerely hope the Ryzen platform won't be sharing the same motherboard design, considering this only has one SO-DIMM slot.

      Also got the run around and then finally cancelled. Terrible treatment from customer service, an experience that I wouldn't have expected given their popularity….the kicker is that I was a repeat customer? Not anymore

      **Edit let me get this right. We are being negg'd from providing an actual tangible experience/issues from the company? vs folks that negg a genuine deal on ethical grounds yesterday?

      Don't get it, please neg away! :P

  •  

    Any deals on the bigger screen E15?
    or repeat deals on the AMD E595?

    •  

      Customised to same spec, E15 for $1352 with coupon "EXTRA" (42% off)
      OR the lower spec pre-configured E15 for 49% off @ $999(i5, integrated intel UHD)

  •  

    This is actually a good deal. Ended up with the X390 though. Needing to replace the E595 as it's too big for my use.

  •  

    They should have 32 GB RAM as an option. The Samsung S20 Ultra has 16 GB RAM!

    •  

      That would be stupid. A waste of money with little to no performance benefits.

      •  

        I bought a 32GB ram stick and upgraded mine…usually they charge a premium for having higher specs, so you can just upgrade this part yourself and save the money

  •  

    How does this compare to an Inspiron? Need a few for a small business that only deals with word and excel

      I'd be concerned at the max screen brightness of only 250 nits on the Lenovo. Also, the swapped ctrl and FN key would trigger OCD! ;-)

      • +1 vote

        I see. I have a X1C6 myself which can swap ctrl and FN. Need a few for my bro-in-law's business but I'm under the impression that this one is likely to have better build quality than Inspiron/Vostro. I've used Latitude/Precision at work and can really say I wouldn't buy one with my own money.

    I had this for a month and returned it as DOA due to keyboard backlit failure.

    Please avoid this product as the screen is way below avg quality.

    It feels like an old TFT screen where the white saturation is too much.

  •  

    I thought i had the same model (from the boxing day deals) as its i7 10th gen e14, but mine isn't backlit keyboard?

    They really need to have more obvious model numbers.

  •  

    The bigger screen E15 vs E595 - which one is the better laptop?

    • +1 vote

      I'm asking myself that question too - basically Intel 10th gen vs. last gen Ryzen.
      However E595 has 2 memory slots so can do dual channel configuration for better performance to CPU and GPU. Maybe the AMD integrated graphics better than intel 10th gen one.

      Downside is the E15 dropped the extra memory slot and only has 1 DIMMM.
      However E15 also is slightly thinner by ~2mm, backlit keyboard, keyboard is now bottomed out (some say disadvantage) and has WiFi 6. But is $300 more than the last AMD deal for $727 for the E595

    Hey TA,
    Any Lenovo deals which are less than 1.1kg?
    As usual, awesome work :)

  •  

    8GB of RAM is not a good pairing for this laptop.
    Otherwise it seems to be a good deal.

  •  

    I am thinking of buying it but there is no actual "buy" option on that page. Literally the worst designed page I think I've ever seen in my life. Really doing themselves a massive disservice. Think I've been looking around for 5-10mins and there's no 'buy' option anywhere lmfao. What a waste of time.

    •  

      Seriously? Click the button that says 'Customise' and go from there. 🙄

      •  

        I click that page and then there's another page that simply doesn't load for me. Could be my browser, I don't know, but it's just weird that it fails to load the customisations, like it's a website that sells products and it simply fails to load. Just a massive lol from me.

    I posted a deal ThinkPad E14 - i5-10210U, 8GB/256GB SSD, 14" FHD IPS Anti-Glare, Intel AX201 $935 Delivered and was considered "lukewarm deal" with only 20 votes.
    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/516794

    There was various upgrade options with discounts applied to the upgrade. For an example After the discount
    1) upgrade to an 10th Gen i7-10510U was only $104 Extra
    2) 512 SSD and 16 GB Ram was only $133 Extra

    In summary, ThinkPad E14, 14" IPS Display, 10th Gen i7-10510U CPU / 512GB SSD / 16 GB RAM, Backlit KB but with Intel UHD Graphics was $1172 But received Only 20 up votes.

    It is important to note that in the current deal, the Cost of upgrading the RAM from 8 GB to 16 GB is $125 as discounts are not offered on upgrades

    Thee above analysis clearly demonstrates that the number of up votes received is directly correlated to the individual who is posting the deal rather than the actual deal itself.

      Are "up votes" something that's important to you?

      • +3 votes

        I hope you are not offended by my above post.
        No, up-votes are not important to me as I have the product knowledge to properly vet the deal.

        However, I know people who don't know much about computers and depend on the unbiased votes to make their purchase decisions. Unbiased voting serves a very useful purpose and that's why it's given importance and displayed prominently.

        Going back to the main topic, if you happen to disagree with my analysis in the previous post it would be helpful for everyone to know the reasons behind it.

          It's true reputation matters. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.

          The OP has many associates that prematurely upvote the deal. See for yourself, it’s the same bunch of people doing it .

    Would buy now if I could receive it in the next couple of weeks, but that doesn't look likely from comments.
