    Thanks for your hard work TA.

  • Thanks TA, ordered!

    .

  • Only difference vs e14 model is size?

    • ~100-200g heavier.

      Same battery size as e14 so should run out of juice slightly faster due to larger screen.

      Also just a guess but I've heard E14&E15 gen2 fan is quite because it's as very powerful and the bottom case can get pretty hot under full load(~46c). So E15 with same CPU might have more room inside laptop to dissipate overall heat? Or at least have the battery pack further away than the Hotspot.

    AMD Ryzen 7 4700U CPU (8C/8T)
    512GB SSD NVME (supports up to 2)
    16GB RAM DDR4-3200 (8gb soldered + 8gb so-dimm)

      I have the 14" version of this.
      It's no longer available, (sold out, might be back??) but performance is amazing.
      The on CPU Vega 7 graphics is double the performance of the dedicated GeForce 940M of my older machine.
      To be clear, I'm comparing integrated graphics vs dedicated GPU silicone, and this wins by a good margin.
      The stare of basic mobile graphics is certainly healthy.
      Still won't make it a gaming rig, but certainly opens up options for better performance light mobile gaming.

      Build quality is good.
      If it's like the 14" version there is room for a second NVMe SSD and 1 x dimm slot.

      There is mild backlight bleed on my device (but this is a different screen).
      Despite negative opinions backlight brightness is adequate at full power for the vast majority of circumstances.
      That said in situation with difficult lighting environments it could certainly use more grunt.

      Feel is good
      Weight is balanced
      Noise is low under benchmarks, absent under basic tasks
      Temps are controlled well

      Minor annoyance with the function key location.

      • Btw, you can usually swap function and control keys on lenovo's in the bios

  • +1

    Ticked all the boxes… even did the 3yo onsite warranty for $99… (silly me - but hey!)

    • On-site warranty if they deem it necessary to come out, only

      Paid one year for my on site warranty with my Lenovo that had sleep issues, and they reckoned they didn't need to come out because it's a rare fault.

      • +1

        Did you get the sleep issues fixed by Lenovo?
        I have a Lenovo that randomly wakes up and eats through the battery. Closing the lid doesn't put it into the sleep mode - the fan continues to work and temperature increases. I saw online that a number of users have complained about these symptoms

        • What Lenovo model is yours? Mine got fixed by a BIOS update eventually but I've talked to others (and seen various Asus and Dell forums online) - that have had sleep issues. Where it goes to sleep and after a few hours they can't wake the laptop up. Seems to be only for AMD ryzen laptops.

          My sleep issues were the same as yours but it was totally hit and miss when closing the lid - sometimes would send to sleep, otherwise it would do the same as you've described.

  • What storage expansion does it have? Only a single M.2 slot?

    • The E15 supports 2 NVME drives in total.

    • Theres an empty (normal size) m.2 slot.
      The existing ssd is in installed in the spot for the m.2 short spot

  • +1

    Sad to see retailers selling 8gb configuration such close to 2021.

    • +15

      Totally reasonable for 90% of people

      Easily upgradable if more is needed

      • +12

        Yeah, the real scumbags are the ones that sell soldered only and limit to 8gb

        • +6

          Like apple?

    • +1

      Can support up to 20gb with a 16gb so-dimm.

      • +1

        Infy managed to get the E14 to 40GB RAM with an extra32GB stick. Should be possible with this one too.

  • Noob question, generally these days does laptop have either 4GB or 8GB RAM? Anything more would be more of an option?

    • +1

      16gb laptops are pretty common now

      I think it may be mostly for gaming laptops (with GPU) though

      You can (almost always) add extra ram to an 8gb pretty easily anyway

      • Ok great, many thanks for this. So I guess the world is moving closer to more 16gb now.

  • Awww man - I ordered this https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/584431 (Asus VivoBook 14 flip) as a pressie for my niece for xmas - seems like this Lenovo is much better value.

    Should I return and get this instead? :)

    • Depends on preference. The build quality on the E15 will be better. It's designed as an entry level business laptop. If your niece needs a 14" touch screen, you would keep the Asus. The E15 is also has 6 cores vs 4 cores of the Asus.

      • +2

        Agree, it's not all about spec. The Vivobook is for a completely different use case. I have had a vivobook, and the touch screen made life very easy for me when bringing it to places where using (or bringing) a mouse would not be practical.

        Whilst the laptop in this deal is more powerful, that may not matter if the power does not get used.

      • Yea, which makes the E15 the better bang for buck.

        Forgot to mention niece is 10yo and this will be her first laptop - the Lenovo is better but very corporate for her lololll

        • The Asus is better than Lenovo in many ways…..

  • Black Friday I got it for $767 with LenovoPRO (and an additional $19 cash back). Need an ABN to register for PRO account. May be similar deal may come up on Boxing Day

  • The 5000 series mobile Ryzen is expected to be coming out very soon. Leak benchmark are already out there in the wild.

    • The 5000 series will be a mix of zen2&3. I wouldn't be expecting to see zen3 chips in the low/mid range that this laptop is in.

      • Yep. The U lines will be another improve Zen 2 revision while the H line will be featuring Zen 3 cores. Intel mobile has some serious competitor with Apple silicon and AMD mobile Ryzen

  • Lots of requests for this and cheaper than its small brother with
    Reason: full keyboard number-pad which is practical :D

    I used to have a 13.3" laptop but got a 15.6" one with a keypad, now can't go back to one without a keypad.

  • I'm a bit ignorant on quoted screen spec.
    When you say 365mm x 240mm, is that the Screen+Bezel( or do you call it frame?) , or is it just the screen real estate (is that the right word)?

    Thanks TA, ordered!

    • -2

      Why? Did you really need one? You know the about problem that Lenovo have with their power port right?

  • Thanks TA. We have been looking for a deal of the Huawei Matebook 14 or 13. Is there anything you can look into please?

  • +1

    Hi TA, any deal on Lenovo ThinkPad E15 AMD Ryzen 7 4700U (8C/8T), 16GB RAM, 512 SSD, FHD, Backlit Keyboard (20T8S0AA00) ? Thank you.

  • This model has option to add Lenovo 65W Standard AC Adapter (USB Type-C)- ANZ, what is the difference with 65W USB-C that comes with the laptop ? Thanks

  • Hi Guys, where do I put the code TA-CRAZY-E15 there is one with holidays I clicked on…..I do not want to go too far and miss it.
    Thanks

    • I simply put the TA code in the box below. I went in via the CR website.

      Sorry I can't remember exactly what it looked like but it took the code and reduced to $805. I didn't click the Holidays one.

      No issues with checkout, order confirmed and CR already tracked. Order was placed at about 16:45 hrs.

      • freddofrog42 Thanks, mate.. I will try again

  • Payment Method is not able to be clicked on?

  • I found the Cash rewards and I used that to go to checkout. I have to fill in my information which I did but cant checkout

  • Any 17 inch screen deals going?

  • All good, I had to use my iPad to complete checkout. I do not know why the laptop would not let me.

    Thanks TA

  • Thanks, bought another 2 of these today. The coupon, CR and the Amex cashback of $120 for over $1299 amounted to a great price.

    Finally all staff have new laptops

    • Me too! really need a laptop for university

    • I think they were clearing them out.
