    Just me maybe, but not a fan of the build quality of idea pads in general.
    At this price point i'd be looking for thinkpad bargains.
    My $960 E14 Gen2 AMD 4700u (8c8t) with 16gb dual chan 3200MHz ram is a beast.
    The screen tho…. always the screen.

    "45% NTSC" is it possible to get any lower? lol

      44.99% is lower.


      Next Lenovo is probably going back to monochrome green


    the lack of thunderbolt on many lenovos is quite a detractor IMHO


      if they add a better screen, thunderbolt, usb c charging no one would buy the more expensive ones.
      i hate it when companies kneecap their cheaper options but ultimately understand


      What do you need it for, out of curiosity?


        thunderbolt is just like the new USB. you don't know you need it until you go to buy something and it uses thunderbolt. it's not so much that you need it but it will essentially guarantee that you don't need to revisit buying a new laptop and scratching that itch for at least 5 years down the track

        at its most basic level, many docks use thunderbolt to deliver two 4K screens, or you could connect an eGPU. Many of the processors nowadays are more than powerful enough for gaming and being able to add a desktop graphics card for when you're at a workstation is super useful in my opinion.

        it's not going to be a requirement for everyone but i think it is wise that if the price difference is not high, thunderbolt would be enough to sway me between two laptops that are otherwise identical. I would even give up features for thunderbolt such as dealing with a poorer screen, but this is because my laptop would be maybe portable 50% of the time at most, other times it would be docked



          I dislike standards changing arbitrarily. For example, I have a lot of specialised equipment (astronomy) that requires USB-A, so any laptop that doesn't have that is a non-starter for me. I quite like USB-C in theory but the implementation is bad (e.g. it's a pain in the arse to get adapters to USB-A).

          Not sure I see the benefit of Thunderbolt over mini DisplayPort plus USB-C, but I guess people like it based on comments here and elsewhere.


            @caitsith01: the benefit of Thunderbolt is that typically they include all the "lower" protocols if you can call them that. It is only tiered that way due to their cost to implement.

            So some USB C ports will only carry data and charge other devices, others will allow charging from USB C and others will include DP1.4 and so on. Then you have protocols like MHL running over the same port and so I agree that although physically the port is the same, it takes an encyclopedia to understand all the acronyms and what they mean in terms of features.

            I've found that CPU computing power has stagnated in terms of playing basic games and performing office tasks that having the thunderbolt will ensure that the interconnectivity in the future isn't severely impacted. If you need more graphics power, add it to thunderbolt, need to drive 8K screens, use thunderbolt and so on


    15.6" is $10 more, 1 left in stock.
