    I'm thinking about getting this for my mrs - thoughts anyone?
    About the laptop not the mrs

    • I have ordered and waiting delivery. Hopefully it will come tomorrow. The laptop just to be clear ;)

      • Good luck on delivery, I bought a monitor last week from Lenovo, got an email it was in transit and then checked tracking, it is still on hold in China.
        Oh well may have to wait a while

      • Ordered less than a week and delivered via dhl express last Thursday for wife. And she’s happy with it. Very sleek looking.

    • Looks like a cracker!

      Laptop is ok too.

  • on average, how long should i expect this to last when not gaming?

    • The main issue is that it's a gaming laptop with only a 45wh battery. Most of the components used are not power efficient. The Intel version got just over 5 hours, in a review, at 150nits brightness, whilst web browsing. I expect the AMD version to be slightly better due to having a more power efficient processor.

      • My G7 17 pulls so much power when plugged in it even drains the battery! - NUTS but cool

    • 6.5 hr is advertised battery time. I bought one because specs were good in that price. With gaming don’t expect it to have 6.5hrs but for home and work purpose it works for me.

  • Great pricing actually.

    I got the ideapad s540 13 from the previous deal cos I'm into thin and light, but if I wasn't so obsessed with those I would go for something like the discrete GPU

    • Did you get the ryzen 7 or ryzen 5 version? How have you found it so far?

      • Ryzen 5 4600u version arriving this week. I'm moving up from a Xiaomi mi notebook air 12.5 core M3 6y30, so should be a big step up for my RAW photo edits in DxO PhotoLabs

        • Wow that's gonna be a ginormous step up. Should be a pleasant experience I imagine.

        • Nice. I'm pretty keen on the Ryzen 7 version but heard delivery times are blowing out to Dec/Jan even though it says shipping in 10-15 days. Not sure if I should just settle for the r5 but its just the 8gb of ram is what's stopping me

  • Is there any graphic card generation after this one? I mean generation, such as 20xx or 30xx

  • Any comments on the 250nits screen? Is it not bright enough?

    • Yeah it could have been brighter but overall it’s ok. It’s very fluid looking and color output seems great. I bought this one for my wife and she loves it. Yeah lus the keyboard travel feels premium and with backlit as well low and high on brightness

    • I’m returning my laptop e14. Inside is fine, but if i sit outside in the shade I struggle to see the screen

      • Is it just dark or actually hard to read the text? I recently received my Flex 5 14 and it came with the dim Chi Mei screen (glossy), tested by others at 215nits avg. It's actually better outside than my other laptop with a matte 250nits display - it's dark but the text is still readable. My theory is that the matte actually obscures more when the light is at an off angle and negates some of the brightness advantage in that regard.

        My Flex has a couple QC issues, but I bought off Amazon and they can't replace, only refund. Since it's not in stock, my only other option would be an E14 in the price range. I'm thinking I'll end up keeping it anyways if the E14 isn't going to be any better display wise even though it should be brighter (the BOE panel it usually ships with is generally tested at 280 nits avg, so unless you got the short stick as well and got a different panel it should be brighter than mine).

        • I’m not a professional in the field, but I have a 2010 macbook (2010!!!!) and the screen is better outside. The resolution of E14 is def better, but outside I struggle to see more than the MacBook.

    • 250nit is OK inside: far from a window on a sunny day.
      or sitting next to a window on a cloudy day - almost OK

      300nit will allow you to use laptop mostly comfortably anywhere inside regardless of lighting

      400nit gives you enough headroom for more situations - good for people who travel a lot and, say, can have a little meeting on a cafe table outside

      so the table goes as follows:
      220nit might be just OK, but very limiting
      250nit passable, could be enough for you, but not for everyone
      300nit golden standard
      400nit and up most likely you don't need it, but some people do

  • Grab this for my Grandma? her max budget is $1200.

    I'll happily take OTHER suggestions

    She will NOT game, but wants something of decent value that will last her a while :)

    (A guy at her local PC shop tried to sell her a V145 for $1000 :( )

    • I been looking for good specs PC in decent price the specs and inclusions in this model under $1200 could not be bound anywhere else.

      Another lenovo laptop deal was on earlier but expired

    • 250nit screen is just on the passable side. But 120hz means sharper text. If you gonna hook up an external monitor to help her see bigger things, then this laptop is sweet for the price.

    • this a bit overkill for your grandma to be honest. but the price is really good.

    • Don’t get your grandma a gaming laptop. The priority on performance makes them less usable for other tasks and will be a pain for her to use. Get something slim and light with a good battery. The speed of any modern laptop will be plenty for her.

      I just did a short trip with the gf and left my brand new gaming laptop at home, in favour of her Acer Swift. Thin, light, and the battery lasts about 15 hours so we didn’t bother bringing a charger. Inexpensive too.
      I’ll probably hang onto my 12inch MacBook for similar reasons. Gaming machines aren’t great portable machines

  • Good laptop bought it for wife last week. Delivered via DHL express. 120hz looks really good in the eyes and the built quality feels premium (wife commented) also the blue backlit is quite nice. it has 2 stage adjusment. Keys travel also feels really great the keyboard doesnt feel it wobble when u press it. Overall, for the price of $1179 its a really good buy. 16gb ram and good storage + 1650ti gpu not bad

  • I got mine in the last drop and I got mine delivered in 2 days. It's been running pretty smooth since - I reckon it's pretty worth for the price.

  • FML.

    Had to do baby duties, came back to purchase & coupon no longer valid 🤦‍♂️

  • Don't plan on doing any creative work if the panel only covers 52% of srgb and it's not bright either. <250 nits.


    Legion costs more but is better.

  • How does this compare to the Vostro 14 5490?

  • Guys, I purchased a thinkpad 450s 4 years ago and was wondering if it's due for an upgrade. It's i7-5600u, 256gb ssd, 12gb ram?

  • Would this be a good computer for illustrator, photoshop and sketch up? Looks like a deal even compared to some desktops I have been looking at

    • would be perfect except for the screen (AdobeRGB (36%) and sRGB (56%)), so you could use an external monitor but might aswell get a desktop or spend a bit more for one with better colour accuracy

  • Missed out!

    Can anyone suggest an alternative to this around a similar price?

    Really liked the idea of 120Hz!

    • Looks great!

      I think I'll wait til this deal comes around again

      • So far pretty happy keys are little bigger. Battery life is around 4-5hrs for home/office work. Brightness is little lower and weight a bit higher than other laptops i have used recently. But definitely a good deal in that price

        • I've been offered $1300 by Lenovo webchat, should I take it?

          4-5 Hours is extremely poor, can you switch the dedicated GPU off to improve that?

    • Would you be able to advise if this charges via USB c?
