    1-2 months wait for dispatch :(

  • +9 votes

    Good specs for the price but let down by the dim 250nits 45% ntsc screen

    • Would you say watching movies on this would suck because of the screen?

      • No not really. I have a 250 nit screen and it's completely fine for me to consume media.

        Honestly its not an issue unless you are watching in the sun, which you are probably not.

        Ripper would be the 1-2 month dispatch if we're being honest…

      • Yeah… unless it's at night, or a very dim room (the shiny glass reflects things annoyingly like a mirror and tends to get smudged easily).

        I think Apple is the best when it comes to enjoyable displays on laptops. Not the highest resolution, or fastest frame rate, or most accurate, or brightest. But very balanced and enjoyable in real-world cases, compared to the sea of Windows Laptops with disappointing screens.

        • So apple is best despite not being the best?

          • @MaxDong69: The reality distortion is strong in that one … 🙂

          • @MaxDong69: I think the point is balanced to which your response was not.

            • @Gusper: Balanced isn’t best. This isn’t audio lol. Screens are objectively better or worse

              • @MaxDong69: That's objectively wrong.
                Humans don't want to use a screen that is really strong in some aspects and really weak in others. Let's consider phones for a minute, since they're the main display people use. You can have the highest resolution, fastest frame rate, most accurate display… but if the brightness is 50 nits, no-one's going to put up with that nonsense. On the other hand, you could have a 900 nits screen, with fastest frame rate, and most accurate display… but if the resolution is 240p, again, no-one is going to put up with it. People are willing to sacrifice in each attribute, if it means having a very balanced display to use.

                What makes this quiet ironic that your profile picture is of Vision.

                • @Kangal: In audio there is merit in being able to produce different frequency ranges (often using different components) clearly and loudly, but what can really make a sound source excel is how it balances those frequencies. What I’m saying is that the concept of balance being important DOES NOT carry over to modern displays. A display isn’t better than another display because it has more balanced specs. If two displays have the same specs but one has an excessively high resolution or refresh rate that doesn’t make sense with the other mediocre specs, that display isn’t somehow worse than the other because it’s specs aren’t balanced. Balance adds nothing, and doesn’t make something best. Better specs make something best, especially because manufacturers don’t make the examples that you’re talking about where some specs are premium but others are bad. If something has high peak brightness you can bet the other specs are great as well

  • Is this a good deal if I want to have it plugged into monitors most of the time?

  • Good specs at this price

  • Good laptop…my mum has last year's 4XXX variant.
    Probably best performance to value ratio on the market!

    • AMD actually cheaped out on the 5500U. It IS a 4XXX chip. The 5500U is super similar to the 4500U. The 5500U does a good bit better in multicore as it includes hyperthreading (SMT), and a tad bit more cache.

      TLDR this is basically a "4500u v2"

    • What are the connection/s from the included power-brick, USB or barrel connector, or both?

  • Has anyone bought laptops from Amazon before? How does the warranty work?
    And How is the Battery life of this one?
    Thinking of buying for my high school son.

    • I haven't had to deal with warranty yet so unable to comment but here's a copy paste from the Amazon link:

      Also battery life is pretty amazing according to my mum. I don't have exact numbers for you unfortunately.

      Based on what I can tell with the inbuilt windows battery estimator/indicator thing, with light use, it can last 7-8 hours easily.

      From Amazon link:

      Disclaimer: I didn't check if adatpor works but there seems to be a supporting comment from the previous version of this deal: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/615204
      Hope that helps!

      • Thanks mate for your detailed reply. Thinking thinking. It's bit risky buying from US Amazon store as not sure what happens if it goes faulty after 10 months.

          Although it's a US model, it's actually sold on the AU Amazon site so should be covered under our warranty conditions. It will probably still need to go back to Lenovo USA for any claim, but being through Amazon it should make sending it back easier than if you were dealing with Lenovo US yourself, I've even heard that Amazon will pay for/reimburse the shipping fees.

  • Got the 4500U version of this, pretty impressed with it. Build quality is pretty decent, but I've noticed some slight flex around the front and the Esc Lock LED has been recently unreliable. The screen is plenty bright enough for me IMO.

  • Why do we need 3pin Mains Plug to IEC C5 (clover leaf) - 1.8m for this laptop if we can charge using USB C port?

    • +1 vote

      The C5 cable would be for the the connection of the transformer (power brick) to the wall.

      • But you dont need it if you are charging using USB C cable? I get that you need C5 if plugging into the powerpoint.

        • +3 votes

          When charging, the other end of that USB C cable is plugged into the power-brick and wall, is it not?

  • Tempting, but waiting until potentially June is a bit off-putting

  • How can I check if this laptop outputs to 2 monitors? I need 2 x 4k monitors at 60hz.

  • Looks like it is sold out.

  • That went out of stock pretty quick. Seems like I got the last one.

  • I'm not sure if the included power-brick output is USB only, barrel pin only, or both. Hoping it's both as although USB-PD charging is handy, I find the barrel connection the sturdiest and more durable long term option.

  • u snooze u lose. damned.

  • i hate the 14 inch screens - two small to run x2 windows/tabs/apps, too big to be that portable.

    For those still playing along, I asked the Lenovo rep on Amazon HERE about video output via USB-C and they confirmed no.

  • Back in stock, but at $1108
