The Z series is Lenovo's "entertainment" series; but even though they fit a Blu-Ray player they don't have an option for a full HD screen. They fit an i7 processor and 8GB ram; but a hard disk that can't match even an i5 processor. The GPU is only a 630m so it's hardly a gaming system that 'requires' an i7 processor...

Lenovo are no different to the other major manufacturers. I guess it's a little like the Megapixel race on cameras; consumers look at HDD size, CPU speed and RAM so manufacturers invest the money there rather than providing a well balanced system.

You're right - I guess this deal was expired before it was even posted ;)

i did ask them last night abut the cashbeck before it was expired

Hello,

Greetings from Amazon.co.uk.

This is a followup email regarding the conversation we had on Amazon.co.uk chat.

I understand you would like to know whether the "Lenovo Ideapad Z580 15.6-inch Laptop (Gunmetal)" comes with £100 cashback.

I've checked our website and see that the cashback offer for this item is no longer available with us.

In this case, I would request you to contact the manufacturer "Lenovo" to know more information about the cashback offer. They will assist you further.

I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Anyone know what speed the RAM is? It would probably be easy to replace though right?

Also the HDD at 5,400 RPM seems very slow. So that would need to be replaced with a 256GB SSD for what I need I think too. Could the motherboard support the SSD at full speeds?

Guys this deal is back on. Lenovo have extended their offer till the end of September

See here https://www.lenovo-saving.com/en/summer-saving

Just purchased. Think this is a STONKING DEAL at £579.99 with cashback for an I7 8Gb 1Tb 2Gb Dedicated and Bluray

TTT

Expired as this is an old deal and will not be read.
XplosivduX#14
Not old check the lenovo link: https://www.lenovo-saving.com/en/summer-saving
on for another half a month.

the processor gets impressive benchamarks

Dedicated graphics are pretty standard for a laptop (so below average desktop speeds, not for the gamers out there)

if you plan on using this for any kind of music production or something with long processing times the ivy bridge is worth it.

Just to reiterate, Summer Savings deal is still on as long as you are invoiced before the 30th of september, which knowing amazon, won't be a problem if you order in a morning or the evening before a working day.

I think it is better to avoid Lenovo cash back promotion. As mentioned by few users yesterday I too noticed the listing of this model in above promotional sites and ordered the laptop through Amazon... But today they have updated the site.. Now M81D2UK model is not listed there...

Have to cancel the order.. :-(
thecorrectness#16
Had to cancel last night.

- No Gigabit Ethernet.
- Screen is a typical x768 (nothing special)
- No backlit keyboard (should be standard for a laptop this price).

Ideally like to go for a Lenovo as the build quality normally is better. Have my eyes on the IdeaPad Y580. Might have to wait a few more months before prices drop to 500-600.

Meanwhile I'll carry on searching for a decent i7. I've finally saved up enough cash lol.

There's a review of a Z580 i7 on pcadviser that specs a gigabit ethernet port

http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/reviews/laptop/3371524/lenovo-ideapad-z580-review/

One of the pdf files for the z580 on the Lenovo website also suggested that some models have gigabit ethernet. Hopefully the i7 models do.

Mine is being delivered thurs/fri so I will try and post my findings when I have had chance to play!
