While looking for a deal on a laptop, none seemed to check all the boxes. I needed an SSD drive plus extra Ram and a storage drive, not to mention HD screen and dedicated 4gb graphics. It's got the specs of a gaming machine without looking like it belongs in outer space.

John Lewis also have a 28day guarantee for price so if it goes down you can get money back.

It's about £50 cheaper than buying from Lenovo direct.

The father in law wanted a "desktop replacement" laptop; we settled on this. I was very impressed by the speed of the thing (although hardcore gamers will no doubt want more graphics oomph), and he thought it was amazing! Great bit of kit.

This will make a pretty poor gaming machine. The GPU isn't that much better than integrated graphics.

It plays fallout 4 fairly well, GTA, and League Of Legends according to some of the reviews.

I'm coming from a Q6600 desktop with an old 512mb 8800 graphics card, so these specs Trump everything I have. No pun intended.

This needs an SSD.
A 15" has ample room to store both a boot SSD and a storage drive. There's not really any excuse other than cutting corners/cheating out but at this price that's unacceptable imo.

Title says it has one....?

It has Both a 128SSD boot drive, and a 1TB storage drive. Dedicated 4gb graphics, HD screen, backlit keyboard, ticks all my boxes.

Whoops. I must have missed that :p

With photo and video editing the is certainly a place for mid range video and extra resources elsewhere not everyone is racing to play games. This looks a decent worker to me but I would want to see the CPU details at least as I don't like those low power jobbies.

It's got the i5 6300HQ so no U processors. This is a quad core with Turbo boost.

Well yes that's a big plus, sort of thing I was looking for 12 months ago and was prepared to pay £200 more.

For the sake of £300-400 you may as well just get a 1060m gaming laptop, which will out perform this by a huge margin and will be future proof. You're choosing a budget brand and a laptop which isn't made for gaming to game on. Bizarre.

You can get a 960m, an i7 and a 17 inch screen for an extra £50.

I have an Xbox one to game on. I do however do imaging and such, with the odd light gaming here and there, but only when I'm out.

Please post a link to the i7. On Lenovo's website it's almost £800. I find with laptops, you have to find a happy medium as you can keep adding to the price to get something slightly better. I have a 24 inch screen I could hook up to it if I need a bigger screen, but 17 inches hinges on thw edge of portability.

Who said anything about it being on Lenova? I'm not going to link a "gaming" Lenovo laptop as they simply don't do them. The idea in itself is ridiculous, which is why I think this deal is terrible.

You said you wanted a gaming laptop and now you're supplying several reasons as to why you don't need a gaming laptop. If you want a gaming laptop it's almost always best to spend big. If you want a work laptop then you can get one for half the price. It sounds like you want both, just for the sake of having it in case.

I don't know what "imaging" you do or how often, but you're paying a £200 premium for a terrible GPU, just for "light gaming when I go out".

Thanks for the link. It may come in handy for some.

I don't want a gaming laptop, I just said it had all of the specs of a gaming laptop without the crazy red glow and such that most gaming laptops have (outer space)

I haven't played a game on my PC since the original Mass Effect came out so I don't use it for that.

In that case you may as well buy a premium Laptop and just use the integrated GPU.

Did you go for this or found something else ? I found it while looking for reasonable spec without breaking bank.

Bought it on Saturday, and it was just delivered today about 2 hours ago. Looks the part so far, and most importantly for me it packs a punch without looking like a UFO.

It's updating windows at the moment so can't comment much more yet. Screen looks good as well. It went from off to windows in about 12 seconds which my old Q6600 couldn't do even though it also has an SSD boot drive.

Gonna spend some time getting the drivers updated, and see what bloatware I can remove.I'm coming from a desktop so hopefully I won't remove everything I need in my quest for a vanilla windows. I also have Acronis so I'll make a backup once I remove everything so I can use it to restore in the future without the added extras.

Also love the fact it has the 2 year warranty as well from John Lewis which helps.

Thanks very tempted by this its for lad who who wants to do video editing I know its not going to be full blown but it looks good on paper for the price. Is the spec quoted on JL web site as received and can you confirm Lenovo part number as tried to find some reviews and seem slots of different build specs. Rang JL yesterday they quoted 80RU00FEUS but could not find this anywhere suspect they gave me duff info.

Only issue I picked up was the 1Tb disc drive is only 5400rpm and slow as well as battery life but would not be using it mobile most of time. Any other info appreciated hope it goes well. I am hanging out in case JL drop price a bit on friday if they do you should be able to get any difference refunded so keep an eye on it.

Many Thanks

Mine is the 80RU00EFUK model.

The 1TB drive is only 5400, but I was of the opinion if I want a faster drive later on I can just replace it fairly easily without have to reinstall an OS or such. I don't suspect it'll be noticed much when playing my music or opening up a few files here and there.

One thing I've noticed about the 1tb drive is..My WD black drives are faster than this one, but my external 5400 drive I use as a backup is a lot slower than the 5400 drive in this laptop. It's more than likely that it's down to only having USB 2.0 on my desktop. Interface seems to help out a lot.

I'm gonna miss my old desktop. It's so big and old, but still works really well considering it's 10 years old.
#19
Thanks does the battery appear to be removable from outside have read its not ? a quick upgrade would be some more memory and swapping out the 1Tb for another SSD and use the 1Tb in a usb 3.0 caddy. Depends if std memory is fitted in the two banks ie two x 6.

Defiantly worth having the JL two year warranty in today's world be pretty much obsolete by then.

Lenovo Spec Sheet

Disassembly and options

These two links should help. Not really keen on taking apart my own for science, as Laptops are a new frontier for me. According to the second link there is no memory on the board, but there are two slots which support 16gb each. The back looks fairly easy to remove as well, but again I don't think it'll be something I'll be doing anytime soon.

Thanks for those links really useful that PCle SSd disc is a new format for me familiar with the standard ssd having replaced operating drives in most of my machines for these.

looks like I will order it as seems to come apart easy enough.

Thanks

Anyone who got this are you pleased with it managed to get the Y700 for £699 not opened yet just wondered what you thought of Lenovo quality as found good deal via HP on HP Omen.
