    Good laptop. But can't run VMWare Mac OS. rest all good

    • +1

      Do you mean you can't run hackintosh via VMWare or that you can't run VMWare or MacOS on these laptops? The hackintosh/MacOS directly is a pretty niche use case. Usually it's more about tinkering than running as a full on OS. You would be better off just getting the Mac. As for VMWare, not sure why you couldn't run it. It installs on just about anything.

  • Is any way to buy if I do not have edu email?

    • +1

      Find someone with an .edu.au email address, get them to sign up an Student Bean account then login to the Lenovo edu store via the Student Bean login thingie then you go create an education account there with your normal email address. That should work…

      Convoluted? Yes. Saves ya $ though.

      • Thank you very much!

        • otherwise, happy to help if you DM.

      • EDIT: no it doesn't work, it will give you some sort of domain validation error when you tried to check out if the account you've created doesn't end in .edu.au so you'll need to crawl back into the online store via the Student Bean thing again.

        Managed to check out ok afterwards. I do have a valid .edu.au address/student card so YMMV.

  • Note that this P14s has the 250 nits screen. To get the exact same model with the 400 nits low voltage screen, you're looking at $1,421.10 using EDUCOMM coupon code:


    I was about to purchase the 400 nits model when this 250 nits deal popped up. Is it worth $182 for the better screen (ie, a dollar per week for the 3.5 years I expect to keep the laptop)?

    • It is 100% worth it to upgrade from 250 to 400, while from a work perspective it won't make a big difference 250 nits is noticeably dull

      • even indoors? or just outside

        • I am using the 250nits screen right now and it's fine after software update. It was terrible before the driver update as you can view my previous comments. It's all good now. I actually prefer it over Dell, especially the keyboard. It's probably the best I have ever used.

          • @Torres: I ended up going with this 250 nits version. Lenovo's previously listed price difference to get the 400 nits model was only $50 more, so to pay an extra $182 in this scenario didn't sit well, especially when I'm always connecting to external monitors at work and home, and there's no outdoor use.

            The added bonus is $74.94 Cashback bringing the total down to $1,174. It's a terrific machine at that price!

            • @DarrylD: I don't think cashback covers EDU store. FYI

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


              • @donkeyhokey: You may ultimately be correct if they do a manual review of the purchase, but I do have the email confirming that $74.94 has been credited to my Shopback account.
                The difference may be that I used my .edu email to log into the Lenovo Edu Store to get the offer, however, I used my personal Shopback email when processing the payment.
                I'll update if the Shopback is canceled.

            • @DarrylD: That's an awesome price. I am sure you'll be happy about it.

              • @Torres: Cheers, Torres, very happy with the P14S which arrived 44 hours after ordering! As you said, the screen was really lacking brightness out of the box. However, after doing the driver updates, I now run it at 60 or 70% brightness indoors.
                I wouldn't have done those driver updates without you referencing them in your post, so thank you!

  • Thanks, OP. Probably a stupid question, does the edu store ship from Australia?

  • Dell or Lenovo. I've been out of the loop for a long time. Lenovo price wise is excellent.

  • Any idea what the shipping time is on the ThinkPad E15 Gen 2 15" AMD Ryzen 7 4700U?
    Thinking of cancelling my Lenovo 16" order from previous deal as spoke to them today and have told me 8 weeks away.

      Shipping times seem to vary greatly depending on your model and selected upgrades. I ordered the above-mentioned P14s model yesterday at 3pm and it shipped this morning with expected delivery on Monday (27/9). That is amazing compared to most people's wait times on the recent Ideapad and Legion deals.

      As for the ThinkPad E15 Gen 2 15" AMD Ryzen 7 4700U you're thinking of, give them a call and hope you don't get the seemingly generic "7 weeks" response.

    • A quick update to say that the laptop arrived via DHL yesterday at 11am, 44 hours after ordering! (in Sydney btw)
      Clearly, if you don't do upgrades and they have stock, delivery service is terrific.

  • How does E15 Ryzen 5/7 compare to E15 i5-1135G7 version on main site for $1019 (only 256Gb SSD)?
