  • Not bad not bad.

    Waiting for 5600u and 5800u which don't seem to have hit any model of any brand yet.

    I see with the Yoga Slim 7 Pro Lenovo has gone with 90hz and Dolby vision screens. I'm going to wait a few years cos everything even in low range will go high refresh rate.

  • Is this the first ryzen 5000 series available here? Specs look better than a lot of the deals recently such as the $999 nitro but is this 2.5x faster?

    Plus. 1 year warranty?!?!?!? Isn't the Legion their top line for gaming laptops?

    • Not even close to 2.5x faster. Probably like 1.75x faster.

      The 30 series laptop GPU's aren't even close to their desktop counterparts, even more so than prior generations.

      • Do you have to go RTX for raytracing/Minecraft?

        Would a laptop 2060 be aasdive step down from this 3060?

        • You probably need at least a 2070 or 3060 to use raytracing. The 2060 isn’t very capable for raytracing.

        • Raytracing isn’t quite there yet. Go for the best or wait for better performance and more adoption

  • Does it support Thunderbolt?

  • Decent price for a monster laptop with good thermal and screen. I guess it is not eligible for cashback?

    • Correct. From cashrewards site:

      “ Purchases made through Lenovo's student store, staff discounts, corporate deals, and negotiated offers (phone/email/chat) are ineligible for cashback”

      • Weird as I got a Cashback note saying that I was eligible for $80 after purchased it. It might not fully go through later but it was logged as cashback.

        • Noice! Always worth clicking through regardless, but also good not to factor cashback into the purchase decision. We all know rationalisation is a superpower found in all true ozbargainers 😉

  • Jesus christ that seems good value

    • Same thoughts. 3070 130w qhd screen 500 nits

      And Legion 5

      I'm praying for 1999 rough figure for mid year 🤞

      • Not to mention it’s a 16:10 16” screen, so quite a bit more real estate than 15.6” 16:9. Larger v-fov in games and also better for non-gaming stuff.

  • Beast of a machine

  • Still available?

  • is student needs this spec of laptop? um…

    • Not unless gaming

      • What about students doing multimedia course?

        • I do a digital media course so animation 2D, 3D, Web development and video editing and 3d image rendering all on a 1650, i5 9300h, 8gb ram 512gb ssd laptop, it runs okay not the best and slow at times but it gets the job done. So the specs of the laptop on this post are perfect. 8 core ryzen vs my 4 core i5. An rtx 3070 vs my on its way to lowest end still on the market 1650. And 4 times the amount of ram I'd say this'd do the job for sure and then some.

  • Does that mean they could sell 3060 model for $2000 or below?

    • Yes, there has been a few 3060 laptops for under $2000.

      EG.
      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/599735

      • Not the same thing. That one you linked is “max-Q” variant, so about 80w gpu power (stunted). This one goes up to 130w.

        Then there’s lower res screen which is also physically smaller, half ram, half ssd, lower vram, piddly 48wh battery.

        • Yep, that's right. I'm taking about the Legion one with 3060, currently it's $2600.

        • Actually, this is not true. Since Nvidia got rid of the maxp/maxq branding, there is very little difference between the laptop 3060 cards now.

          All rtx 3060(laptop) cards have at least 80w tdp, with an additional 15w from dynamic boost. The last 35w are what is now called 'CTDP' which can be changed by the manufacturer. The gigabyte g5 have 80w base+10w ctdp+15w DB, whilst the new legions have 80w base+35w ctdp+15w DB. The only difference between them is the vbios which is interchangable between all rtx 3060 variants.

          Its the rtx3070 and 3080 laptop variants that still have a difference, the one with 1750 mhz base clocks can all be flashed to the 150w+15w DB variant but ones with 1500mhz can not use the high ctdp vbios.

          As long as you make sure the laptop have decent cooling and the charger can provide the power, all 3060 laptops and most 3070, 3080 laptops can be 'max-p'. And this is certainly true with the Gigabyte model, sure, it takes a bit more effort, but its also much cheaper and as far as gaming is concerned the 10500h is perfectly capable with 6 cores 12 threads.

  • damnit I bought this same model at 2.5k with less RAM and SSD storage. Gonna try to see if I can get it refunded(hasn't been shipped yet) and buy this new deal instead.

  • Good for gaming during class

    • If the uni lecture hall I been in is anything to go by. I'm sure many can get away with it.

      • At uni nobody will stop you goofing off but a lot of students won't make it to the final year of the course

        • Well these people end up playing themselves as the uni won't care if they fail as they already paid their tuition.

  • awesome, was eyeing this exact model. Ordered!

  • Huge thank you for this OP. I had ordered the Asus 2021 Strix laptop from JB Hifi a few weeks at $2500 but was then emailed and told it was no longer being stocked. This is a more powerful device at a lower price!

    • In case you haven't bought from Lenovo before, they're not known for expedient shipping

      • "Shipping late April" is basically what I was told by JB and I ordered from them nearly a fortnight ago. Happy to wait a couple of weeks for a deal like this :)

  • Offer no longer listing the specific configuration - looks like they're sold out. Shame: was very close to grabbing one

  • Was ready to contact the chat to see if I could cancel my existing order and go with this one but as mentioned above. Looks like it is no longer available.

  • Sounds like a price error; I was checking out this model on the student store last week and it was straight 5% off the standard price.

    (Edit: I just logged into the education store and now they are 0% off the standard prices!)

    • Very unlikely a pricing error. I have posted multiple deals where there has been a huge price difference between the regular Lenovo online store and the education store. Look up my previous posts.

  • No longer available

  • FML negotiated an additional 3 year on site warranty and a free carry bag- $85 extra.. as he was getting the quote approved OOS and had to decline the invoice.. OZB'ed myself >.<

  • Glad that I pulled the trigger last night, as I thought it would probably go OOS soon. This exact model has been OOS in China from day 1

  • Able to get better by negotiating, but after 3 different sales. Did the purchase last week

  • Got this yesterday night before this was posted with the below specs via sales chat. No edustore.

    All up 2719.
    W10Pro
    2x16gb
    1tb ssd
    Rtx3070
    3yrs premium care.

  • Anyone that was lucky enough to get their hands on it, let me know how it is. So sad I missed out. Thermals, fan noise on load, screen, keyboard, speakers. Thanks

  • Deal is back on for those that are interested - slightly more expensive but back in stock. Just ordered one with a late April ETA

    • Did you get it for $2799?

    • So the deal is back on? When I try to register it says I need to use an email from a school or uni etc. Guessing I need to ring the number and do it that way?

      To be fair though, $3279 is not a bad price considering what you are getting.

  • A deal is on, can confirm, but not as good as the edu store one. See if you can get some extras thrown in.
    Frustrated about my chat with first rep who reneged on their initial offer.
    Me: I'd like to order this model, what is the best price?
    Rep: Wait while i check the price.
    Me: OK.
    Rep: I can do it for this great price! (a bit more than the edu special)
    Me: great, please place the order.
    Rep: Wait, let me check that price.
    Rep: Sorry, I made a mistake, I can't give it to you for that price!

  • Has anyone seen the 300W power brick available for purchase anywhere?

    Edit: went on chat and the guy said you can't buy it separately.

  • Well, I got the shipping notification today :)

  • Has anyone played with iGPU mode?
    Is it a proper hybrid mode with MUX? The BIOS option makes it sound like it disables the Geforce and runs solely off the Vega8.
