    The code works buying one for me. AU$389.22 save AU$109.7. I ordered a E520 the other day using the code and so have many others on whirlpool.

    •  

      Really, okay it didnt work for me just now. Maybe its finished or they have fixed it?

      Okay it worked for me then, didnt work first time. Great Deal for the price!

  • +3 votes

    wow 13 inch! never seen this power/price ratio in 13 inches

  •  

    Looks like they took out the $1 320 GB USB drive option… still, a very good deal since the July THINKSALE

    •  

      The current deal is now a 500gb external hd, but unfortunately only if you purchase a E520. If you don't mind the size then it's a better deal as it's cheaper after upgrading the E320 to have 4gb ram and bluetooth.

  •  

    It should probably be made clear in the OP it doesn't have an inbuilt optical drive.

    Great deal on a 13"er.

    • +1 vote

      Pretty soon optical drives would be the exception rather than the rule. Especially with the incoming ULV ultrabooks.

      •  

        At 1.856kg this would struggle to be classed as a low weight notebook. The Dell Vostro 3350 13"er is 2kg and has a DVD drive. Of course it's not a contender in terms of price, this is just about the weight.

        But yeah, with networking and external flash/hdd storage optical data is becoming irrelevant.

        When HD/BD were competing we were all wondering what the next optical media that would replace them would be… now it seems that there just won't be a next optical media.

    •  

      That makes it a luxury netbook. :D

      I haven't used an optical drive since installing windows and some drivers.

        I rarely use it myself. But it seems like something people would want to know straight up.

    great! just got a basic one at $393 with intel wifi, as cheap as a netbook :)

  •  

    Noo I just paid $700 for a 13" first-gen i5. 13" is a good size I find.

  •  

    I bought the E520 i5 2410m for $525 down from $660. I chose the thinkpad 2x2 wifi for better coverage. It would not be a good idea to save $7 for the thinkpad 1x1 wifi.

  •  

    No optical drive! Who do they think they are, Apple?

  •  

    I bought the E520 i3 using BULK2 two days ago for 467.65. Can I cancel that and order again using this code?

  •  

    How heavy are these? Shame Lenovo doesn't include this vital information on their site.

    • +6 votes

      Weight, loaded with 6 cell battery

      E320 - 1.74 KG
      E420 - 2.10 KG
      E520 - 2.40 KG

      PDF spec sheets

      E520 and E420
      E320

      • +1 vote

        I'm guessing those weights are with the SSD since it wouldn't be the same weight as a mechnical drive and the notebookcheck review lists the weight as 1.856kg.

  •  

    E420: 2.1kg E520:2.4kg (both with a 6 cell battery). That's from a pdf on their site, but I'm too lazy to find the E520 info.

  •  

    why would u pay $5 for the intel wifi link over the wireless b/g/n? whats the differences? (noob question, not a statement)

    i have a previous generation of this model with a ulv core2duo in it. i am very happy with it but am considering selling it off to buy this one with a beefier processor. i love the look, feel and performance of this laptop. perfect size and weight, nice keyboard and the price is right.

  •  

    Also ordered base E320 + Intel wifi for my daughter - $393.12. Much better than many of the retail options out there with lesser chips so very good deal as far as I am concerned. The last Thinkpad I had (IBM) lasted nearly 8 years before any probs so hopefully quality is still comparable. Thanks to OP.

  • +2 votes

    The E520 Enhanced instead of the one in the OP if you're going for the 15". You get the i5 2520 and a 750gb HDD (slower) for the same price, $507.22 - http://i.imgur.com/FETbZ.jpg

    http://shopap.lenovo.com/au/en/special-offers/edge_deals/

    •  

      Yeah you're right. I have sent an email to Lenovo so they can change my order. Hope I'll get that.

      •  

        they cancelled the order, but when I try to get the E520 enhanced, it shows me the Intel HD Card instead of the ATI switchable.

    • +1 vote

      Just so you guys are aware if you order that way you don't get the 50% off RAM offer.

  •  

    I purchased a E520 on Friday using the code "BULK2" - brought my notebook down from $660 to $552. Saw this today and the exact same spec laptop is going for 507 with the 500GB external. Called Lenovo and sent them an email, not to happy with this. Not much can be done but still, I'd like to see how well there customer service plays out.

    •  

      Hi MR.LS1, I am in the same boat and just send them an email to cancel my order. If it gets cancelled, would order again tomorrow using this code.

      •  

        I am also in same boat,except I missed it.I bought mine just before the BULK2 deals i.e THINK4DAYS and my order says it is shipped already. Damn frustrating as I would of saved $137 on my order config !

  •  

    I'm thinking of getting an E320. Wondering whether I should go with the i5 option? Can anyone offer some advice? Would the i5 have similar battery life compared to the i3 option?

    • +3 votes

      A more powerful cpu = potential to run the battery down faster.

      Doing the same things on both machines = same battery life.

  •  

    Cheaper to get the E520 with I-5 standard than get the E320 and pay $175 (holy cow!) to option up to I-5.

    • +1 vote

      Yeah but ones 15" and .5kg heavier.

      Depends if you're after portability or not.

    • +1 vote

      Thanks, but I like the E320 as it is portable while still having a HDMI. I want to replace my crappy work laptop with the E320 so I can easily carry it around (ie. home). BTW, the difference isn't $175. I think it comes out to be less than $50.

    •  

      The e320 "Enhanced", which has the i5-2410M as standard, comes to $467.22 with the coupon…so it's an extra $77 or so to go from i3 to i5, and to get +2gb ram (the base model only has 2gb, the Enhanced model comes with 4gb standard).

      Better value to go with the Enhanced model IMO.

    Half a kilogram heavier!- oh, my achin' back.

  •  

    My only concern is there are no indicator lights on these Thinkpad Edge models.

    •  

      There are 3 LED lights in total… and they are all power indicator lights :)

      However it' isn't really such a big deal, HDD indicator lights aren't really needed (you can hear the hard drive going anyway) and when caps lock is on, a floating icon will appear on the screen.

      • +2 votes

        I do find the HDD indicator very important…but at this price it is so tempting I…must…resist… I have already got 3 computers at home…

  •  

    I'm getting dizzy. I am sure that the first time I looked at the Lenoxo link here it showed E520s as well as E320, now all I get is E320s

    Any problem occur with the cart?

  •  

    And people don't forget the cash back on Monybackco…

  •  

    hey anyone know if there's any good deals for a 17" laptop instead? so hard to find good deals on those… I'm looking for a desktop replacement.

  •  

    would 2 dimm would be better for faster trhoughput? but probably the downside is no free slot for future upgrade?

    •  

      Go with a single slot 4GB. An extra 4GB costs almost nothing if bought at a normal store ($29 at MSY for 4GB Kingston lifetime warranty).

    no USB 3.0 in these ones :(

    Is it worth paying $30 extra to upgrade to the 9 cell battery. How much difference would it make in terms of hours of use on a full charge.

    Just bought a spec'ed up E320 Performance model:

    A positive vote for me.

    Very good price, and Lenovo make very good laptops.

  •
