    • Keep open up new windows and never switched off the computers!

  • How would a laptop like this run with a game like Football Manager? Specs look great for the price

  • By the way, I just bought 2 to get additional 4% off, that makes it even cheaper!

  • +3

    I purchased this for $849 in August last year.

    It was the Ryzen 5 4500u with only 8gb of RAM and a 256Gb SSD. I've since added another stick of RAM. I've been quite happy with it and it's cool that it now comes with 2x RAM and 2x SSD and higher spec CPU for just $15 more.

    While I agree with many sentiments that it's not the brightest screen, it's also a perfectly serviceable laptop with pretty good performance for less than $900. I reckon I'm getting pretty decent value for money.

    I will also echo previous statements that I don't even have it at full brightness 99% of the time. Also, disabling the AMD auto brightness setting made a huge difference in perceived brightness. Caveat is I hardly ever use my laptop outdoors. But I use it mainly in a spot with many large windows and sun comes in pretty well, and I can see it and use just fine.

    • E14Gen2 also has both top and bottom with aluminium cover whereas E15Gen2 has plastic at the bottom.

  • Why e15 price big gap? I’m after inclu right hand number pad only 15inch

    • There are no E15 AMD options anyway.
      I think there are some good deals for 15" in the education store.

  • im assuming this notebook heats up quite a bit right? anyone can comment on it? thx

  • How does this stack against the Dell Inspiron 5402?

    16 GB RAM not soldered
    512 GB SSD
    intel core i7 1165g7
    14 inch display 1920 x 1080

    $789 from dell outlet refurb

    Ordered the 5402 earlier and thinking whether i should cancel for this one

    • +3

      Dell Inspiron is treated as entry level product. Chassis is a much lower quality. The Thinkpad is treated as business grade quality. I7 CPU is also slower than the AMD Ryzen R5 5500u. The i7 is only a Quadcore vs a Hexacore of the R5

      I7 only scores 10000 vs 13000 of the R5 in Passmark.

      • Thanks for the info!

        I think in this case it would be AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U vs intel core i7 1165g7

        https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/Intel-Core-i7-1165G7-vs...

        Still a gap of 10000 vs almost 13000

        • +1

          The Ryzen 4650u also has business grade features such as hardware based RAM encryption.

          • @shellshocked: Copped!

            Now I need to work out a way to return the Dell laptop… I heard they charge a 15% restocking fee, but I hope I can talk out of it.

            Otherwise will have to sell on Marketplace or gumtree

            • +1

              @trippyskippy: I had no issues returning a Dell laptop with overheating issues last year for a full refund. Just call their support centre in SE Asia, and possibly tech support in India if you opened up the packaging.

              • @shellshocked: Thanks for the tips!

                I called them this morning and they said it has been shipped out last week, but they will stop the shipment and refund me.

                The rep said that there shouldn't be a 15% restocking fee, but she said she has to get approval from another team, so let's hope it works out well…

  • If you aren't going outside, wouldn't a desktop computer be better a choice using that $800.

    • If you want to stick to one room/location, yes I guess.

    • +1

      Unless you want to drag your desktop from the study to the kitchen to cook dinner and then have it sitting in your lap while you eat dinner, a laptop may have some advantages for some people.

    Add Ac adapter for extra $58. Does this notebook comes with Ac adapter in the box?

    • Of course, that would be very stingy.

      Some people just want a spare.

      • +1

        Hope computer manufacturers don't go the way of Apple iphones in not providing chargers :p

    • Pretty sure it is a spare AC adapter. Some people like to buy a spare one to leave in the office so they don't have to carry it around with them.

      • Just can never be sure these days.

    • +1

      I has an AC adapter.

      May I suggest as 65w USB PD brick. Might be cheaper or smaller or more versatile.

  • I can't seem to find the config with 16GB RAM?

      • Oh!! my bad, thank you!

  • I logged into cash rewards site and clicked the link from the cash reward site.

    However, I did not disable AdBlock origin in my chrome web browser.

    My understanding is that Cash Rewards track via cookies

    • so it hasn't been tracked? cancel it an reorder?

      • How long does it take to track?

        Paid 24 hours ago with paypal but not showing up yet

  • FYI, the Ryzen 7 model is back in stock but only 2 left. https://www.lenovo.com/au/en/laptops/thinkpad/thinkpad-edge/...

    Not much big difference between the CPUs though https://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/206/AMD_Ryzen_5_PRO_Mobile...

    For this E14 model, the Ryzen 5 has onsite warranty, Ryzen 7 has depot warranty.

  • Does anyone know if entering a Rep ID will affect cashrewards cashback?
    The rep didn't really help me with this order, just chatted about an issue with the lenovo website. I just thought I'll give them some benefits anyway… hope it doesn't stuff up my cashback.

    • The i7 will heat throttle. You can get a 256gb ssd version with an i5 for $988 from officeworks. Oh my bad, it sold out*. The yoga's have poor heat management though.

      • Ok ta, I'll go with the Ryzen

        • I forgot to mention the Yoga is thinner, lighter, and has a better screen that's 100% colour accurate and 300nits bright vs this thinkpad with 60% colour accuracy 250 nits bright. Won't really be a big deal unless you're outdoors a lot/in bright rooms and are photo-editing.

          • +1

            @Timmayc123: Oh, I just cancelled the order haha. Outdoors doesn't matter but photo-editing is an every now and then thing. Hmm oh well, it's $400ish cheaper, enough to sway me

            Thanks for replying!

            • @jamestownfx: No problem! I have had the same canumdrum and am also leaning towards the thinkpad. It's ridcolous value for what it is, you can always replace the screen on if you do decide you need a 100% rgb screen later on.

  • if i use after pay, will the cashrewards be void?

  • no cashrewards tracking mail for me :( anyone else received it

    • +2

      got mine within 10mins, paid with paypal

      • Did you disable ad blocker?

        Paid 24 hours ago with PayPal but not showing up yet

        Another friend paid about 22 hours ago and cash rewards not tracking yet

        • yes no ad blocker

    • Just got the mail

      • When did you order

        • Took almost 12 hours

  • Thanks OP!

    bought ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 Black - cashback worked!!

  • Would something like this be good for a 15yo to use at school as part of the BYOD program, or would there be something better suited?

  • +1

    It seems the cashback been reduced to 5.5% for thinkpads on Cashrewards.

    • yup - now down to 3.50% :(

      I bought 3 yesterday for my business and got 5% discount on top from Lenovo plus $363.07 cashrewards - bargain!

      Want to order another 3 but will miss out on the cashrewards - 1st world problem but still…

      • +1

        URGGHHH. CASHREWARDS!! Shopback is currently at 6%.

        • Thinkpad A, E & L Series2.50% shopback

  • On Average how long does it takes to track cash rewards

    • I just ordered and received an email within about 5 mins

  • Awesome price. Just got one, thanks OP

  • Just went out of stock just as I was about to buy. Ugh

  • Received it, damn it feels heavier than it looks

  • Sold out. Hopefully there will be another good deal since we’re near EOFY.

  • Any ideas when it will be delivered ? Cant see any details under my order

    • Lenovo expects that the laptops will be shipped by the end of June.

      • Oh

        • Support on chat mention 3rd week of july

    • Ordered mine on Sunday and just received it today.

  • Great laptops for the price. Have 7 at my workplace and all the staff are very happy with them. Ordered 8 more of the 4700u models (before they ran out of stock) through our business portal for $950 including 2 years onsite and battery warranty (onsite warranty is a must for us).

    • +2

      So that's why it ran out of stock! lol
      You don't need to order from the business portal, you can just order from the public site and get the same discounted premium onsite warranty.

      • Haha. We have too many Lenovo enthuisiasts at work :D

        The SMB portal gave an extra $10-$20 off the laptop too. And the more we buy through the portal, the more discounts we get going forward.

  • Ordered on Sunday 20th June with an expected late June shipment date

    I called them today and found out that they are shipping it out on the 8th July… Gonna be a long wait :(

    • Yrah mine is 3rd week of July to WA

  • Ryzen 7 and 5 laptops back in stock NOW! <14% cashback using Cashrewards.

  • Cashrewards never tracked my order, how likely would submitting a claim be to get the 14% it was when I ordered it last Monday?

    • In my experience very unlikely. When they didn't honour one of my tracked cashbacks I just got a canned response from them denying liability due to the problem being with the merchant.

      • Yep, got a response claiming that the deal wasn't eligible for the cashback. Dunno why I even bother with Cashrewards or Shopback any more

        • I've never had anything fail to track - but I use a dedicated browser for CashRewards with zero ad block and all privacy controls turned off.

          You can't just use your normal browser with 746 blocking technologies 👍

    • I got both of mine from Cashrewards within 10 mins of paying. Highly unlikely it is tracked and getting the cashback on your end now.

  • Just got the following email from Lenovo.

    Your order is now on its way to you.

    Status

    Shipped On 12/07/2021

    Weird wording given it is the 6th of July but hopefully it is on it's way

    edit: no idea why some of the words are bolded above

    • Lol. Got the same message today. I think they meant delivered 12th july.

  • Finally got it delivered today

  • I haven’t received my order yet as I purchased it late on 30th June. Has anyone tried this laptop for gaming yet?

    The game I am playing has these recommended requirements, and wondering if the Ryzen 7 version I ordered can take it:
    CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 or AMD FX-8310 or later
    CPU SPEED: Info
    RAM: 8 GB
    OS: Windows 10 64 bit
    VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 or AMD Radeon R9 280 or later
    PIXEL SHADER: 5.1
    VERTEX SHADER: 5.1
    FREE DISK SPACE: 70 GB
    DEDICATED VIDEO RAM: 4 GB
