380

Thanks to research from Khurram, this deal has been updated. You can upgrade the base model price to an OLED screen and 16GB RAM. This results in a final price of $1640 on the regular Lenovo portal and is cheaper than the EDU portal deal.

If you add a 6800u 8 core CPU, the price will increase to $1815.79

This product was released in the last week and was selling for $2749 prior to EOFY. The EDU store is now selling it for $1769. This one of new AMD laptops equipped with 40Gbps USB4.

If you don't have access to the EDU store the price is the regular Lenovo online store is selling it for $1924. You can probably taking advantage of any cashback available to try and reduce the price even further

  • The specs look good. But how does this compare to lets say a 12th gen intel laptop or a m2 MBP?

    • +14

      Well I'm concerned about 12th gen in thin and light laptops due to the following article.

      https://www.notebookcheck.net/Core-i5-beats-Core-i7-Alder-La...

      With the following headline.

      "We reviewed a few new Alder Lake-P CPUs(12th gen) from Intel over the last two weeks and our concerns are supported by the test results. The power consumption is very high, which is a challenge for the cooling solutions."

      12th Gen is fine in gaming laptops when they may have enough cooling, but in thinner laptops it creates issues due to the amount of heat they generate and energy the consume ,which effects sustained performance and battery life.

      When it comes to M1 and M2, I would suggest getting one if you fine with Mac OS. I use operating systems like BSD and Linux in addition to Windows, which a Mac is not suitable for.

      When it comes to sustained performance, performance per watt and much better iGPU, the 6000 series is better in thin in light laptops where the TDP is low, 45w and below. 12th gen needs at TDP around 65w to perform. Refer to the following article below if you need clarification:

      https://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Ryzen-7-6800U-Efficiency-R...

        This is the exact concerns i have with intel cpus. It needs more power to perform at its peak speeds. But what good is all that raw cpu power if it is constantly thermal throthling?

      • Good find. Was tossing up between Intel 12th Gen or MacBook Air M1, decided to go with M1. The M1 single and multi-core performance still very competitive, iGPU is 2-3x faster than Intel's, better battery and also fanless. I dislike fans in laptops, often loud and higher-pitched than desktop equivalents.

        I'm wondering what was the point of Intel equipping Alder Lake with efficiency cores if power consumption is still high? At this rate, I fail to see how x86 processors will compete with ARM. Apple has already proven ARM can stand toe-to-toe with x86 on performance, and even beat it. ARM has the benefit of lower power consumption, smaller footprint and can be used from everything between phones, tablets, laptops and performance desktops.

        • +4

          In reality there is more to the story however. It's not x86 that is the issue but Intel's inferior 10nm manufacturing process (Which they call Intel 7 to keep their shareholders happy) and have been using for a very long time.

          The Apple M1 CPU is manufactured using TSMC's superior, for thin and light, 5nm process. The M2 pro CPU is using TSMC's 3nm process. The M1 has advantages because Apple has complete control of the ecosystem and the M1/M2's custom accelerators. It falls behind when an application doesn't comply within the rules of the controlled ecosystem.

          x86 has the advantage where the ecosystem is not under complete control of one entity. If you look at the 2nd link I sent above, the AMD 6800u, which is based on x86, and using TSMC 6nm process is within 6% of the M1 Pro in terms of multi-package power efficiency. 6% less using hardware and software which AMD doesn't have full control over.

          If you look at servers and supercomputers, x86 still dominates ARM. The fastest supercomputer at the moment is Oak Ridge's Frontier, which are based on AMD Epyc 64 core CPUs. It's the first exaFlop supercomputer. Fujitsu has the ARM based Fugaku supercomputer to achieve 442 petaflops.

          In terms of the actual number of CPUs needed:

          Frontier reaches an exaFlop with 9248 - 64 core x86 AMD Epyc CPUs.

          Fujitsu Fugaku needs 158,976 - 48 core ARM64FX CPUs to achieve 442 petaflops, which is 55.8% less.

        • Yeah but you have to bend over and let Apple have their way with you to get it.

          No way that's worth it in my book. Also there's a zillion things I use that won't work on Mac.

  • +1

    Im interested to see the review on 6600U and 6800U series, esp in this laptop vs the 12th gen

    • Refer to the second link I posted above. They test a Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED with a 6800u.

      • +3

        Oh yeah thanks, but yeah wanted to see how it performs on the yoga platform because it give a consistent results, esp for the 6600U.

        Graphics performance is what I want to see because I know 6000 series blows the 12th series out of the water in productivity already.

  • Slim 7 pro X AMD is also available. Just over 2k with a 3050. Shame it has no usb 4.0…

    • Waiting for Pro X Carbon with U series processor, if there is one coming.

  • +10

    that's a very decent deal! touch, OLED 90hz screen, 14" form factor, ryzen 6 etc - its a perfect mobility platform with some power when needed

  • +3

    Have been waiting for the Asus G14 2022 to land in Australia, but given my light gaming needs, I think I'll go with this instead. 1.4kg for light COD/BF gaming is a sweet spot for a FIFO worker. Thanks OP.

  • +6

    Great deal! Cheaper to get from the normal online store using this link - manually change the selection to 16GB RAM and OLED 90hz display and the total comes out to just $1,640.

    • +2

      If you also change the cpu to it only goes to $1815.79

      • You don't need to change the CPU if you're comparing the price with OP's post as that too is the same 6600U processor.

        • +1

          Just pointing out that its suppose to add $249.99 for the upgraded cpu but it doesn't.

  • +1

    when this drops down to around $1500 at some point im pouncing.

    • +1

      FYI it has dropped to $1558.76

  • includes pen?

    • If you refer to the specifications above, it states:

      "Pen

      Lenovo Digital Pen"
