Heat added. Looks good.

I've avoided looking at Lenovo on my recent laptop hunt simply because the FN key is in the wrong place.
Silly reason I know, but I know it would really irritate me.

Not silly at all, it's VERY annoying! I've got the same problem. I avoid MSI, Samsung, Lenovo for this reason. It's a good price, though if you can get used to it.

Great Price, saw it this morning. Heat Added.

Using one now - built like a tank hence not the lightest but feels really sturdy. Only (minor) complaint is disabling the touchbad (FN+F8) every time when you use a mouse. Very easy to brush it when typing. That said still been a good buy, and good value at this price.

In Windows 7 goto Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Mouse, then in Mouse Properties click on Tab Device Settings and tick the box "Disable external pointing device when external USB pointing device is attached". This will enable the touch pad when no external mouse is used and disable the touch pad when you plug in a mouse to your USB socket.

If you keep your eyes peeled, you can get an i3 laptop for sub £300 or at least £300. Therefore I would hold out for an i3, as the CPU is a lot better for the money.
#7
That's what I'm waiting for. Really want a new one, but i3 for 300 or i5 for 360 (pretty unlikely!) Is my price point.

I would avoid celeron based systems.very compromised processors even for basic usage.

Such nonsense.

A dual core 2.1GHz processor is more than fast enough for "basic usage". Its like saying because an Audi A4 can do 140MPH, my Ford Focus' 115MPH top speed is too slow. Feels terrifyingly fast enough to me, especially when my wife is driving.

cars cannot be compared to computers.
celeron and atom are both compromised,budget cpus whether you agree or not.
if this was a net book,I wouldn't complain,at £269,there are other laptops with much better cpus,an Acer model with penium dual core and another one with athlon II cpu were posted here recently,both superior to celeron and better value for money.
if audio a4 cost same as your ford focus you wouldn't buy focus would you?

Well Intel disagree with you as if you look at their website it shows how similar the specs are for a Celeron DC and Pentium DC - See Intel

I think you are mistakenly thinking that anything branded Celeron is crippled which is a common misconception.
#12
Is there still a fan problem with this model or is it now fixed ?

Lenovo forum thread on fan problems
#13
These Celeron CPU's should not be dismissed, the dual core Celerons are very good peformers for everyday computing.... just look at the benchmarks before saying they're crippled

http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup.php?cpu=Celeron+Dual-Core+T3500+%40+2.10GHz

Just because some Celeron CPU's have been lame ducks doesn't mean they all are. I doubt 80% of computer users would notice any real difference between a Celeron T3500 and a core2duo or i3 processor in most tasks.

Funny that cause I'm pretty sure they just were.

Well that's me told then. Does it matter if everyone else disagrees with you too? Or is your opinion a priori truth regardless? I'm starting to understand how those libyans must feel.

I don't mean to sound like a dick, but would it be possible for you to use a little grammar and punctuation, its kinda hard to read without. Ok, that does make me sound like a dick.

Voted hot,

cars cannot be compared to computers.

they can because it is the easyest way for people to understand !

[quote]celeron and atom are both compromised,budget cpus whether you agree or not.

Celerons have always been known as the underdog as a prosser because they where cheap desktop pc prossesers. but good laptop prosesers ( laptops aint ever going to be as fast as a PC) Celerons are a hell of a lot faster than Atoms ! and a 2.1DC ? the atoms are designed for low power usage thats it! remember we talking about laptops or netboks. yeah celerons in desktop would be weak...

yeah if you coulld get a i3 350M for £300 then it would be a HOT deal.... BUT you cant, so this is the next best thing and a Damm good deal ?
Lets face it, we talking about a £270 laptop here price vs performance this is a good deal
#16
celeron is just a brand name now. All the main (non-atom) processors are the same basic design. Top performers are called core-duo, mid range is pentium and low end celeron. Main diffs across range is L2 cache size, clock freq and some extra fearures like virtualization (not relevant for win7 home). At same freq perf diffs are minimal I think. Main think to check is dual vs single core - single core is probably a big compromise now.

Thanks - but I don't get a "device settings" tab - its a bluetooth mouse btw - maybe that's why? cheers anyway.

Amazon are price-matching this too.

Yes, unfortunately this only works with a USB mouse :(

Bump. (Price reduction).
