    What a steal, great deal!

    There's no SB or CR cashback for using WFH coupon.

      I bought the 15" 2 days ago and got $25.48 pending cashback with cashrewards… YMMV?

      • +2

        It will track but most likely will be declined as it's an unapproved code

    • I've once had a tracking go through from the student store when it said it wouldn't be valid, tried it anyway got the cashback in the end.

    • Thanks Riczter. I ended up getting this one.

  • Not sure if I’m reading this right but it seems to say > 5 week delivery time.

    This was $600sth in my memory…

  • +3

    Lack if back-lit keyboard.. kills the deal for me. Such a good laptop if it had a backlit keyboard.

    • Yeah it still bugs me. Honestly the worst thing about this laptop, followed by the fat bottom bezel

  • I got E595 in Sep. last year for $769 ie. cheaper than this E495.

    • +1

      Yep, a lot of tech stuff seems cheaper precovid. I went looking for a logitech webcam today and the same model is literally double what I paid a year ago.

  • I bought the e595, can anyone recommend RAM which I think is compatible with this? So if anyone is adding an extra 8 here can you share your choice? Thanks

    • +1

      You can customise it to 2x8gb when purchasing and the WFH coupon will make it half the cost.

      The E495 I ordered from the February deal had a Samsung M471A1K43DB1-CTD (8GB DDR4-2666). I think the only real difference with the E595 is the screen and keyboard size so could be the same? Anyway, if thats the case, I found a similarly marked Samsung (M471A1K43CB1-CTD - same speed and timings) on eBay and it's working fine.

      I added this to my E495:

      Dual channel etc is working.

      The Ram in these things is 2666mhz but runs at 2400mhz.

      I have been using the E595 since late 2019 and while using Matlab and other memory hungry applications there is a bit of lag/delay. Wondering if I add a 16GB memory, will it improve the system performance? Also, there are two different 16GB versions available but I think we need the 2400MHz one instead of 2666MHz. Is the one below a good price for Crucial 16GB RAM and is that ok for this model? The one Lenovo Offical is selling is over AUD219 (from Samsung)

  • Obligatory "Ryzen 4000 coming soon and will kick ass, especially with 5+ week wait times".

    Anyone have a rough idea of what price we could expect the new Ryzen 4000s laptops to be?

    • +1

      Super rough estimated guess, from ~$1500 with rounding (guessing from US$849 entry price of Yoga Slim 7 with Ryzen 5 level 4000 series APU, taking into account currency conversion and GST)…

    • Ryzen 4000 CPUs cost the same as 3000 so should mean we see 8 core laptops like this model… The launch price should be same as the standard price but can't speak for sale prices this good

      Source I believe it's been said (I know 100% reliable) and the Asus TUF line which has the H series seems to have kept very similar price with new 4000 series as the 3000 so fair to say seems same price bracket

  • +4

    Just a warning, I ordered this last week and expected ship date is at the end of June with early July arrival. Something to consider, and a dealbreaker for most.

    • Ordered on 19 March, received on 20 April. I guess, the demand has went up.

  • +8

    For those wanting a backlit keyboard and slightly more oomph for gaming, their Ideapad is at a pretty decent price with the WFH code as well @ $1,071.

    https://www.lenovo.com/au/en/laptops/ideapad/ideapad-l-serie...

    Newer CPU, a standalone GTX 1650 (or an extra $50 to keep the iGPU as well, maybe for more battery).
    Comes with 8gb of RAM or +$95 for 16gb.

    • Thanks Deviner, bought one liked the deal :)

  • +1

    Could anyone help with suggestions on something similar to E495/595 that doesn't have such a long wait time?

  • +2

    With 5 weeks wait after seeing how amazing AMD 4000 series is in the H series it is a serious recommendation to wait I think… Should have 4000 series before this even ships and they should fit in at the same price teirs (current only confirmation of this is the Asus TUF line kept same price from 3000 to 4000)

    Suppose you likely won't see prices this low for a bit though so if you won't have use for the extra cores this is still a great deal

  • IF you place a custom order - upgrade ram, or hdd it will take a very long time to ship. I did that last time, ended up cancelling order.
    Had one stock model delivered, after 1 week the screen stopped working, but they were very quick to replace it.
    I found a bug where the laptop will randomly reboot itself, just drop power and then power back up, but after looking through the events, it looks like it may have been related to Bluetooth power saving. disabled power saving for the adapter and it hasn't done it since.

  • I've had one of these since December, very happy with it. It is a good blend between business and leisure, and plays games quite well. Warzone runs OK with low detail but not without the occasional crash.

    I added another 8GB RAM to get dual channel. Case is hard to open, feels like you are tearing it apart. But it clicks back together nicely.
    Wifi is a bit meh to be honest, but you do get an RJ45 port which is a bonus these days.

    The best thing about it is the keyboard! I will NEVER go back to the thin, metallic Apple-style keys.
