    Hi Tightarse, are you able to secure a deal for Legion?

  •  

    Does the $699 price include cash rewards 12% taken off or not?

  •  

    sigh just bought a 2nd hand latitude for the same price same specs. Sad

    Lenovo just announced ThinkPads with 4000 series processors, something to keep in mind.

    •  

      Announced is the key word. I think the new intel 10 based ThinkPads will be available shortly, however no word on exactly when the AMD versions will be available.
      The 4000 series should be a nice improvement though if you can wait a couple months.

      •  

        Would be amazing though, 6+ cores and 12+ treads on a laptop? Might be worth getting rid of a computer if your work loads aren't graphic intensive

        •  

          Availability will definitely take some time, though Lenovo has typically been one of the first companies to adopt new lines of AMD processors in the past. I'm hopeful we'll see 6 - 8 cores in a laptop with very little thermal throttling in a mainstream chasis; sustained performance is often overlooked. We'll see if 7nm can provide it.

        •  

          Base model will probably be 6c/6t for AMD or 4c/8t for Intel. Will have to pony up extra for the HT or 8 core options on AMD

    Hi TA. Any love for E595? I am after a bigger screen 😊

  •  

    need something for the old folks to check emails and surf the net, would this fit the bill? They don't use anything else on pc at all.

  •  

    need specced up x395

  •  

    Has anyone seen these laptops in a store before?

    I need a sub $1k device that charges with usb c but I can't wait for the shipping time on this =(

    •  

      What state do you live? The more niche computer stores have them but the price is way worse.

    •  

      Go to the closest centrecom super store, they have tons of great value laptops on display.

  •  

    I received mine 3 days back from the previous deal. Great little lappy!

    •  

      Agree - if it's in stock, they ship quickly. I ordered 2x E490 on a Saturday afternoon, shipped Monday morning, attempted delivery Wednesday. Any customisation led to an estimated shipping time of 4 weeks.

    •  

      How's the battery life so far?

      •  

        According to the battery stats 8-9 hours but real-life usage around 5 hours…I did some light gaming and it was around 2-3 hours.

        •  

          does the temp shoot up crazy while gaming?

          i wouldnt want the fan going nuts although i know this laptop is not for any serious gaming.

    Weird, it's been more than 1 hour, but I haven't received email from Cashreward that my purchase was tracked.

    Anyone done any light video editing on these? I'm looking for a device to take with me on holiday in June (for a month) and need something that I can stitch together some videos of my travels while I'm away (during flights, trains, etc). My thought was to get a refurbished iPad Pro 2017 and use LumaFusion (since the iPad has an app for Insta360 R) but if this can do editing in Sony Vegas while not tearing through the battery, this might be a good option.

    •  

      The APU has great graphics performance but video rendering will probably chew your battery since it's such an intense task. You could do hardware based encoding rather than CPU but the quality will be worse.

  •  

    Can anyone comment on the $36 bag Lenovo suggests to pair with the laptop? It's actually a 15.6" bag. TIA

      Not on this specific bag but laptop bags of that style aren't as popular as they used to be 20ish years ago. There are plenty of decent backpacks and satchel bags that include a laptop compartment, but aren't limited to only carry a laptop and charger.

  •  

    Is the RAM user upgradeable on this?

  •  

    Cheers TA! Hopefully cashback tracks successfully :)

  •  

    Can this be taken on carry on with the packaging to claim gst? Or does it have to be in package at all for gst?

  •  

    Could this be used on the NZ website?

    When I click 'Customize', it goes to a blank screen. Can't seem to add it to cart any other way. Anyone else havving the same problem?

    •  

      If you have adblock, try disabling it

      •  

        I've done that and it's still the same. Also tried incognito mode.

        EDIT: tried it again and it works! Thanks!

        •  

          no go for me
          used firefox, edge, ie and chrome

          cannot see the add button.
          the customise button, brings a blank screen with a message …loading compatible upgrades….

          cant even register to Lenovo site

  •  

    Considering that the new lenovo thinkpads (higher spec range) with the new ryzen 4000's starts at $8** USD, this is an amazing deal.

    Bought one - Thanks for sharing !

  •  

    shame you can't add a 2nd hard drive, if upgrading to the 512gb what's the best option they both cost the same?

  •  

    Guys, for those subscribed to this thread, please remember that cashback drops from 12% to 3% on this laptop from midnight tonight AEDT. Good luck!

  •  

    Hi

    Going to get one tonight but can't work out what the difference when they both cost the same?

    256GB Solid State Drive, M.2 2280, PCIe-NVMe, TLC vs 256GB SSD M.2 2242 PCIe NVMe

  •  

    Sorry one more question, will my existing hard drive fit this laptop: 250GB Samsung 2.5" 850 EVO Series SATA 6Gb/s SSD Drive PN MZ-75E250BW

  •  

    I want to buy 8G ram extra. Does anyone know the name of the ram stick inside this laptop? I remember it's a Samsung 2600Mhz 17-17-17?

  •  

    Bought it thanks TA, now just need to make sure cash reward tracked.

  •  

    I bought one of these in the last deal. Absolutely love it. It's a budget laptop so please keep that in mind but for the price, the performance is awesome! Highly recommend adding another stick of RAM to 16GB if you want to do any sort of light gaming on it.

  •  

    Bought on 27th, still no shipping estimate let alone delivery estimate. Lenovo was happy to take my money though.

    I've seen comments for previous deals so I'm not that surprised but still disappointed.

    Surely I deserve an estimated delivery date, even if it's a way off.

    •  

      Same here, interestingly though. I read that they only charge when unit is shipped. Not true I guess

      •  

        Delivery: somehow my order is marked as custom so delivery is delayed. It's not customised!

        Charge: actually I've only been charged for the case as that has been shipped. I haven't been charged for the e495 yet. My mistake.

      I live near Taree, 4 hrs from Sydney.

      Makes me think these are not being shipped within Australia. I'm thinking more like USA/China

      PS: I did no customizing either.

    •  

      Pretty normal for Lenovo eBay. They presell laptops that haven't begin production yet so you have to wait for yours to be built.

  •  

    Ordered on Feb 28, est to ship Mar 25, sigh, and Lenovo already charged with Paypal.

    Expected delivery 3 April…ordered 27 Feb. I'd expect this from someone on eBay selling $1 screen protectors but not for a $700 laptop? Is their supply chain being affected by coronavirus? Genuine question

    Same here, expected delivery April 3. Pretty annoying, need a laptop right now :/

    What can you do hey.

  • +1 vote

    I see I'm not the only one surprise at the (lack of) speed of the delivery.
    If I had knowned this I would not have ordered one.
    Last time I bought from Dell it arrived in 3 days from date of ordering

    I hope there is a Lenovo rep that read this and know that this type of turn around will make people go elsewhere

    • +1 vote

      I feel for you I'm in the same boat. Ordered 27/2, expected to ship 7/4 and ETA 20/4. It's poor form, does my warranty commence on the order date or arrival date?

    •  

      @tightarse Has a connection of some sort with Lenovo, i'm sure he will pass on the frustrations and hopefully next time there's information of some sort in the OP regarding delivery times.

      I also grabbed one for our business as we have a laptop on its last legs, and wont be receiving it until the 20th of April.

    •  

      This is honestly pretty business as usual for Lenovo. I bought a laptop from their eBay store in mid November 2019 and it didn't arrive until the 2nd week of Jan 2020. They had the eBay estimated arrival date as first week of December but after placing my order I was generated a tracking number which when entered into Lenovos own website showed that the machine has not been built yet and was expected to ship in the last week of December. Ended up being delayed a further week and a half about halfway through December.

  •  

    Similar experience in terms of shipping. 17th April is beyond a joke.

    Anyone got one yet?

  • +1 vote

    I'm considering cancelling my order. I'm not sure I'll get the laptop even in April since there are basically no international flights atm which impact on air freight capacity.
