Anyone seen reviews on these? Having trouble finding any info on this laptop.
Lenovo ThinkPad L14 G1 14" should really be the headline item.
244 nits make for a dull headline
That's just how it is with notebooks in Au market, we all get the crappy low-lumen displays even when our friends in the US/ EU get much better displays on the same model
Asus ZenBook 14 UM425 is also configured with 250 nit display but as you can see from the review, it didn't get a good score with mushy keyboard and chassis flex.
True. I had to splash $2500 on an XPS 15" to get 500 nits
Not a gaming laptop I guess. The price is very decent comparing to others priced at around $2k - $3k.
I feel like an absolute noob asking this but here it goes, looking for lightweight fast lappy for after hours entertainment/heavy browsing. No graphic design or gaming, just a good ol fashioned laptop that will last 2 years of nightly service for the couch/outside when weather permits
These laptop specs seem great but screen not so much - seems nits is a discussed item which I understand to be pivotal for screen performance. Especially outside or in office environments
So many offers with so much jargon makes me second guess myself anytime I look.
Look at a Dell XPS 13" [i5, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD] . Powerful, portable, and nice bright FHD screen with good screen legibility outside. You can pick up a refurbished example from Dell at the moment for around $1,300 with 1 year Dell warranty which is the same warranty as a new.
Thank you kindly for the suggestion. Will definitely look to purchase tonight. Really appreciate it.
My experiences with PC'S and Laptops feeling speedy/fast that are important (1st) brand name for durability though some brand name laptops can be a flop so finding reviews for a particular brand name laptop suggest one should do, (2nd) Ram size being at least minimum 8gb, (3rd) harddrive speed only suggest it being a SSD type drive (memory drive) over traditional mechanical drive which is a lot slower, size of drive will be personal preference (4th) processors CPU I'd personally try too stick too AMD as better bang for buck over Intel at the moment and superior (5th) battery size another personal preference for me id have it plugged too power in most cases and rather have better specs for all above (6th) were the prices will differ a lot is the screen type/quality and resolution this will come down too preference of course you'll find cheaper prices with a crappyier screen, my 2 cents
I do like this overall as not really into gaming
$900 vs $1300 is a bit difference though, can't compare.
Really? Don't think OP needs to spend $1300 on a REFURBISHED machine just for general purposes.
But then again I don't have my own personal sun to blast on my computer screen…
I have no idea what he needs, unlike you apparently. Just giving him my opinion and an option to consider.
@WrightRightWriteRite: No offence, but you come off a bit like a Harvey Norman salesperson.
OP has commented on an $899 new laptop post and you're trying to push a $1300 refurb.
@pennypincher98: Wasn't pushing anything. Go talk to someone else if you're bored.
@WrightRightWriteRite: You're straight on to the defence via counterattack when you don't even need to reply.
I gave my opinion same as you. If you didn't like it, tough. This is a public forum.
@pennypincher98: Yawn. Get a cat.
@WrightRightWriteRite: So I can redeem my cat food freebie? What a good idea, I'm enlightened by your contribution to this thread! /s
To me this one looks better for less money. $788 - $758 after cashback.
Acer Aspire 5 15.6-inch i5-1135G7/8GB/256GB SSD Laptop.
Better processor better graphics. Only 8GB RAM but that won't make any difference for your intended purpose.
Is 8GB enough to run CorelDRAW and AutoCAD?
No, mine struggle in 16 gb
@niagraBzO: Thanks mate. What do you think about Surface laptop which is 20% off sale on eBay. There is R7 3780u with 16 gb RAM model for $1600, would that be any good? I’m looking for light weight 15 inch model for casual AutoCAD and CorelDRAW.
Microsoft laptop series is also on run-out sale, although bear in mind the ones on sale are Ryzen 3000 series which is based on Ryzen 2000 (desktop) architecture.
there is now (at time of this comment) only 1 in stock. 380 nit display
I paid just over $900 for the 4700u/16GB/1TB variant (Asus refurb) and it’s a productivity/dev beast with a surprisingly premium chassis.
It’s true the screen is not a blinder but I don’t work outdoors so brightness has not been an issue at home or in the office.
As a workhorse, it destroys the work-issued Intel MBP and then beats it while it’s down. It’s also less reflective due to the matte display and is cool and quiet while I’m scrambling eggs on the MBP.
Hi wondering would this still available?, if by chance would you have a web link?, thanks cheers
Just a general question on this and probably some other latest laptops, can these be charged and/or supplied power from an external battery pack (one that has enough watts to do so or at least extend the laptops internal battery time), I'm guessing being charged through a laptops usb-c port if one has one, if so is this common,. Or need too look for one that has this feature
