    Seems like a pretty sweet deal honestly. Really like the form factor of my 14" Zephyrus G14, but this seems to be an incredibly decent system spec for a compact laptop at this price. I look forward to being corrected if I am wrong :D

    I take it the 5.5% Shopback Cashback would apply too.

    • +4

      Only 2% cashback on E series Thinkpads at time of writing through Shopback. Cashrewards has 5%.

      • +1

        Cashrewards has 14% Lenovo cashback today.

    • Is this better compare to jb hifi below? thanks

        Thinkpad has a better CPU, more RAM out of the box and would be better build quality compared to the Dell. Dell has an extra USB port. Personally I'd spend the little extra and get the Lenovo. We have 100+ E series Thinkpads in our work fleet and they've been very reliable.

      Great deal OP!

      What I would recommend for buyers though is to stick with the 14" - the internals are exactly the same for both the 14" and 15" - most critically including the battery. So if you don't need that extra diagonal inch of screen real estate, you may get slightyl better battery life with the 14" model.

      • +5

        15" has a numpad. That might be important to some.

    • +1

      14" deal found here

      What happens if the soldered ram has issues or dies?

  • dont suppose it's a touch screen? daughter's school specifically requires this function….

    • Nope.

    • +1

      Had this requirement from my kids high school. The youngest has turned off the touchscreen because it was annoying and never used, the oldest in year 12 got an upgrade last year and specifically asked for no touchscreen.
      As far as I know macs don't have touchscreens, so if they allow BYO macs then there's a fair chance that it's a bit of a pointless requirement. If you can, check with the older kids to see if actually use it often enough to make a difference.

    • +19

      my son said his school needs him to buy specifically a gaming laptop. wierd

    • Touchscreen are the Yoga series if I am not mistaken.

    • +1

      My eldest uses the touchscreen all the time, my second kid never, even though the school strongly recommended it. Personal preference.

  • Dell have Ryzen 5 3450U/8GB/Win11pro/256GB SSD/15.6" screen.. for $729 (promo $809, before 10% cashback) if you are not fuss about CPU/memory

  • Comes to $853.51 on their education store, is that good value?

    • for the same model id say thats amazing

      • Thanks mate. Cheers.

        • Hey mate. I just checked and those have lower specs as compared to this one.

    • That's for the 8GB/256GB SSD version.

      • yes. I think same 14 inch is $1013.71.

  • Size Resolution Touch Type Brightness Surface Aspect Ratio Contrast Ratio Color Gamut Viewing Angle
    14.0" FHD (1920x1080) None TN 250 nits Anti-glare 16:9 500:1 45% NTSC 90°
    14.0" FHD (1920x1080) None IPS 300 nits Anti-glare 16:9 800:1 45% NTSC 170°
    14.0" FHD (1920x1080) None IPS 300 nits Anti-glare 16:9 1200:1 100% sRGB 170°

    Looks like it can have 1 of 3 screens but the au website doesn't seem give you the option to pick a display?
    (It points out its 300nits, so has to be one of the last two)

    • 45% NTSC would be quite bad, no?

      • I'm not too sure but it sounds bad….

      • It's around 60% sRGB for a more like to like comparison with the better screen, but it is at least an IPS panel so it looks mostly consistent from a variety of angles.

        Compared to a panel that displays 100%+ sRGB, with a sunset image for example where there are a lot of similar colours close together in the sky, on a 60% sRGB display they all look like big blobs of the same colour and you lose colour accuracy and detail.

        But bad displays are quite common for laptops with good CPUs, 16GB of RAM, etc at this price point. Many manufacturers won't even tell you the % sRGB coverage, and you get many "IPS-level" displays that aren't even IPS displays.

        • Ta!

    • +1

      its the 45% ntsc version

  • Is there a touch screen version of these lenovos?

  • How's is this compare this compare to recent deal of Idea pad 3 with RTX3060, please?

    • +1

      ThinkPad is more focused on business use

  • Is there much weight difference

    • ok and the 15 inch from 1.78 kg so not much between them

  • +2

    Weight: Starting at 1.64 kg
    Quite heavy for 14"

  • I was able to get another $30 off on the chat. Ask nicely and they should be able to give you some discount. Plus 5% Cashrewards ($48.45) so $922 overall. A good deal overall. Thanks for the post OP. I was quite disappointed to miss out on TA's earlier AMD deal that had 5825U but this deal worked out well in the end. There wouldn't be a massive real-world difference between 5625U and 5825U for my use cases. I bought the E15 that can support up to 40GB ram so I will plonk in more ram if it slows down in a few years. 🙂

    • +1

      I think if you have negotiated on chat then cash rewards won't honour the cashback. It's listed in their terms

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

      • Damn! I was not aware. It has been tracked for now and is pending with Lenovo for approval.

  • This question might have been asked before, but if not, do the series E, X, P or T matter if the underlying hardware (CPU, Ram, Disk etc) is the same?
    The series do differ hugely in cost so wondering what's so special about the T, P or X that E doesn't have. Is this just the chassis with premium build or motherboard or some alien tech that makes them durable and faster compared to the low cost series.

    • +1

      P & T series are virtually the same (P has some certification for professional use whatever that means). X is top of the range. Essentially the T & P series will be lighter, have a better availability of ports and most likely more battery life. X/X1 series will further improve lightness & battery life and tend to have a 16:10 screen compared to 16:9 on the E series.

      The new 3rd gen T & P series also come with 16:10 screens but are a bit pricey as they've only just come out.

      TLDR: For the general home user for web browsing, emails, media consumption etc you won't miss out on or notice the differences too much. Several family members and friends have E series Thinkpads and love them.

  • +3

    paid $844 with edu store today for 8gb ram/256gb SSD version. upgrading to 1tb m2 + 16gb ram ram stick will cost approx 200. (come on EOFY)
    I think it is better value there if you have basic understanding of computers.

  • I paid $846 for this. Negotiated $50 via chat and I had $103 Lenovo rewards credit on registering with ABN on Lenovo PRO.

    • You can still negotiate after the onlinediscount?
      Cashback would've been more than $50 right?

      • Yes I asked nicely :) and cashback is also capped at 5% for E series. So it's the same but I got the discount straight away and didn't have to wait for the cashback

        • Cashrewards has 14% Lenovo cashback today.

          • @sintro: Duh. Missed it by a day. Could have saved another 100

    • thats amazing price! didnt know you can negotiate on the discounted prices, also cashback on edu store discounts. You learn everyday.

  • 15" looks out of stock. (1 left but couldn't add to cart)

  • Strange CPU number, it's a 5600u with a higher clock?

    • Yeah, it's the 2022 model for OEMs who weren't willing to shell out for 6XXX series processors, it's basically just a clock bump on a 5600.

  • Isn't Cashrewards 14% cashback?

    • Yes for right now! good to jump on it now.

  • Is the purchase from education Store eligible for cashrewards?

    • +1

      Don't think so. This is the rule on their website

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

  • -1

    Can you downgrade to windows 10? Do the drivers work?

  • Seems to be OOS now - makes picking between it and the IdeaPad easier, I guess!

    • The 14" model is still available

  • Cashrewards is back for Lenovo.

    Does anyone know from experience if using official coupon code from Lenovo website will still successfully track on Cashreward? Their Lenovo cashreward page doesnt list any coupon.

    • +1

      This is what it says on their website

      Cashback is however eligible on codes generated by Lenovo on its website, even though they may not be listed on Cashrewards, provided last click before purchase is from Cashrewards

      • Yay! I remember something like this but wasn't able to find it. Thanks heaps :D

  • I bought this exact laptop two weeks ago for $1119.00. I know it's 'only' $120 but hey this is Ozbargains. Feels a cop out I paid an extra $120 for no reason.

    Do Lenovo have a process for this?

    I bought it with my NAB Qantas Rewards Signature Card but not sure if this has any price protection features.
