      Officeworks will recycle an old laptop free of charge. Just wipe/drill your hard drive first to be safe.

    Is it too late to return?

    Which one is better?

    Type 802.11ac, not WIFI 6. I'll wait!

    • +2 votes

      That old tech. WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 is the new tech. As with technology you can't never wait.

      •  

        WiFi 6E is only a proposal and the standard hasn't been finalised yet. I don't think anyone is offering kit supporting 6E yet, and in any case there is a good chance it wouldn't work with the final version of the standard.

    • +3 votes

      Only matters if all other devices you own are already on 802.11ax (wifi 6) and you need very high throughput. Trust me, for most users 802.11n is more than enough

      •  

        Agree. Unless you are already running 802.11ax home/office WiFi network or planning to upgrade your home/office WiFi network to that, then you won't benefit from having 802.11ax WiFi in this laptop.

      •  

        I get what you mean. But with so many affordable WiFi6 devices already out on the market, why settle for old tech? Other Lenovo Ryzen 4500 ultrabook already come with WiFi6, not sure why this model still on 802.11ac. Regardless WiFi6 is backward compatible, and it's future proof for now.

        •  

          But with so many affordable WiFi6 devices already out on the market

          Ah no.

    •  

      I wonder if the wifi card is an easy plug and play replacement? I know it is on my current lenovo ultrabook.

          Old i7-4770 or 4790 16GB ram.
          R5 380/1050ti if you get a custom built one, or 1030/750 single slot LP GPU if it is a dell or HP.

          All up should be around $500

        Bit late but E3-1240 v5 is a Skylake CPU and released Q4 2015.

    Just looked it up, this is a 6 core 6 thread CPU not 6/12 like on the 4600U and 4600H. It's still a good performer, but I figured it was worth mentioning.

    I bought this one on the Hp deal, I paid $1209 , not sure which one is more powerful. But I prefer the 4K Amoled display on the HP because I mainly use laptop to watch movie

      Still available ?

        No longer available, two weeks ago they have 45% off

    •  

      Have you received it yet as I’m pretty sure it’s a 1080P non AMOLED display. I think HP made an error.

        No I haven’t it said delivery date is 12 June… not sure but the description said it’s 4K Amoled display…will see

        I got the same HP and happily waiting for my order!

        Im pretty sure its not an error - otherwise HP is going to have alot of complaints

        •  

          Yea it’s not an error, ours are definitely 4K Amoled , but maybe due to the screen shortage, the processing time keep on delaying, now mine delivery time as been extended to 29 June :(

        The model number is different. Mine is HP ENVY x360 - 15-dr1048tx, there are different configurations.

        The one Jb selling is 1018tx

        The CPU is also different , mine is i5 and JB is i7 model

    Hi how would this compare to this:

    Lenovo Ideapad C340 i5-10210U 8GB RAM 256GB SSD 14-Inch Touchscreen Laptop, Platinum, 81TK002XAU

    Is $950 on Amazon. I'm not good with computers.

      Poor graphics performance and only 8 GB of memory.

      This is a fair bit faster for a little more money.

      • +2 votes

        As mention before the 4500u provides performance roughly between an i7-8565U and Core i7-10710U. Where an application takes advantage of six physical cores, the 4500u will have an advantage.

      Most likely through Amazon. Contact them and they will arrange a return and refund depending on the circumstances.

    •  

      Yeah I'm tossing up between this and the ideapad with the 4800u.

      Anyone, going from a normal laptop to a touch screen, do you find the touch screen a must have now?

      Also correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty certain that this deal has a better processor and is cheaper than the Lenovo yoga. Just aesthetics.

      •  

        I've had both and feel a touch screen is really over rated, unless you're going to use a stylus for art etc.

      • +2 votes

        I've gone back and forth.
        I had a Flex from the US a few years ago and loved the touchscreen.
        Then got a Xiaomi Mibook with no touchscreen and eventually forgot all about it.
        Then had a Surface and loved it again.
        Now using a brand new Inspiron for work with touchscreen and I've not touched the screen once.

        If you've greasy fingers like me, touchscreen is more trouble than it's worth for standard laptops (spend half the time cleaning it).

        For 2in1 types like this, I think it's pretty handy as you can flip the keyboard right under the screen and use as a tablet so the touchscreen is crucial.
        Really good for travelling and especially on planes on the little tray I found.

        Touchscreen for myself and wifey is a must Surprised at how useful (convenient) it can become.

      •  

        My personal laptop is a non touch and my work laptop is touch.. can confirm i wish my personal laptop was a touch screen and will be upgrading soon to one.

      •  

        I use my touchscreen for playing piano (set it up like sheet music), but outside of that I honestly can't say I really use it. Sometimes easier for tapping things than with a mouse though?
        To answer your question, certainly not a "must have". Just a nice bonus.

      CPU wise the 4800u is 8 cores and 16 threads vs the Intel with 4 cores and 8 threads. AMD will definitely will have the performance advantage.

      As a brand, I like Lenovo more but as a model, not as good as XPS but XPS won't be this price. Its more of a premium laptop for Dell.

    End of Support
    2026-04-16

    Is that when support for Windows 10 ends? What then?

    •  

      It's probably when Lenovo will stop updating drivers for it. Everything will still work but you might run into driver issues that'll you have to rely on 3rd party or part manufacturer to address.

      So how does amazon cover warranty as its from Amazon US?

    Is the build quality on the Lenovo Yoga c740 (Amazon deal as well, i5 10th gen 8gb ram) that much more superior than the Lenovo Flex?

  •  

    Careful. This one doesn't support USB-C displays and has only HDMI 1.4b port which means you can't hook up a 4k display to it.

    Previous E495/E595 do support USB-C DisplayPort so it's strange they removed it from this model.

    Can somebody please comment about the warranty as this is from Amazon US?

    • +1 vote

      Wondering this myself. From all I could find was the International Warranty Service policy (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht074528), but only applies when Australia starts selling this model, though it still remains quite vague and suggests that you need to have physically bought the product whilst traveling in the US.
      My instincts tell me that only the Amazon 30 day warranty would apply.

      I read a few months back that the person had issues with laptop so Amazon AU offered refund in credit or to send it back to US and offered shipping payment.

  •  

    Great specs - warranty is going to be a bit of a hassle with Amazon US.

  •  

    Linked specs advise that this charges using USB-C, but the image on amazon shows a barrel charging port. Can anyone confirm whether this is USB-C charging capable?

    Has anyone had their order shipped?

      I've been waiting months for orders from the US to ship, one of them after almost 3 months Amazon told me to cancel it and reorder. I did and it's been another 2 months, thanks for reminding me going to cancel all orders from the US.

    •  

      Any update if yours has shipped? I'm tempted to order, but not sure if worth the hassle.

      •  

        Just contacted Amazon, and they said that it will be shipped today with UPS.
        However, I couldn't get the refund on the price difference :(

  •  

    Have a surface laptop 1 (Core i7-7660U Iris 640) which still goes for about $1000 second hand, so a swap would work out price wise.

    How does the specs of this Lenovo compare? I will mainly be using it at home only.

    •  

      This has triple the number of cores and each core is faster. So yeah, much faster.

      Screen on the Surface is much better

  •  

    How would this be for video editing on davinci resolve or for light gaming like gta v here and there on medium settings?

  •  

    what's the buy rating for this out of 10?

    •  

      Personally not a fan of the bezels, plastic body or weight. 8/10.

    •  

      11

  •  

    Also I was planning buying MacBook Pro 13 inch, is this better spec wise?

    •  

      The only thing I see better in the MBP 13 is the storage. Otherwise this is better than the top speced MBP 13. Also you get 14" screen and touch which is a plus. 1K AUD vs 2K AUD needs no introduction :) Just read some reviews for any known issues before you pull the trigger.

  •  

    Wouldn't it be good if you could just buy the hardware, and attach 12 inch 15inch or 17inch screen to the laptop, I mean the hardware isn't the problem, even laptops of 2014 are still top notch, it's how you interact with the device with sheer number of fixed laptops or notebooks I certainly would love to see innovation.

    Phone manufacturers are now trying to adopt folderble phones(but the question is, do you want that, when the sales pitch is? The consumer is always right, but the consumer has no idea what they want until it's put forth to them.) I have never seen a expensive laptop do what the surface pro can do but in reverse.

    •  

      If only laptops came with standard motherboards (like ATX) that was user replaceable it would have been nice.
