Lenovo T460s (i5 6300U, 8GB, 256GB SSD, 1080p touch) £749.00 ebay / etradingcorp

Cheapest I've seen these are ~£1k on ebay. Not a bad deal, although the T460 goes for £550 with similar specs, but if you're after the more ultrabooky laptop.... There's a good comparison of the tw…

The same specification from Lenovo can be obtained for £977 so while it seems a good deal for this option, the listing is rather lacking in the important details. Personally, I'd rather buy the stock T460 for the double digit battery life.

No mention around what battery configuration is being offered, what warranty is being offered ie are these already missing the best part of the first year of the typical 3 year Lenovo warranty, what keyboard they have considering these could be cheap grey imports among other things.

For basic web browsing, word processing, etc. this is just perfect at this price. Why spend more? To do what?
Parents laptop with w10 and same benchmark score as this is painfully slow just booting up or connecting to the internet and everything takes ages to update,although its only switched on once a week.
So what i would do is spend more around £250 and get an i3 that will perform far better compared to this.
I have one too - it's not the CPU that's the issue for browsing / word and such, it's the utterly rubbish hard drives they put in them. One I replaced with a SSD is fine now for my mum.
It's not a fast CPU for sure, but you shouldn't be seeing painfully slow boots from it once you have a decent disk in there.
For sure a SSD will improve speeds but that's more expense again,,but my I5 Laptop with a cpu score of 3900 compared to this with 1000 is in a different league,so the cpu has a great effect as well.
Just my 2p worth,but I would look for an i3 for about £250 which would have a cpu score around 3 times this :)
Of course ian i5 is in a different league, look at the price difference.
Also, look at CPUBoss: http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i3-4010U-vs-Intel-Celeron-N2840
The i3 for that price will be a U series, which is not even close to being 3 times as powerful unless you're throwing very specific benchmarks at it. It's certainly not 3 times faster in day to day tasks a laptop like this will handle.
I understand what you're getting at - it's a low end CPU for sure, but you're talking about spending 40% of the product price on top of this, to get performance which isn't going to translate to browsing and Word in that way.
Theres this one,although £80 more http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/dell-vostro-3558-core-i3-5005u-2ghz-4gb-500gb-15.6-inch-windows-10-professi-0n8kd/version.asphttps://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i3-5005U+%40+2.00GHz which is nearly three times as fast.
All things are relative though like buying cars,spend more get a better/faster car.
Absolutely irrelevant. Either post a deal for the same price or cheaper with better performance.
Yes it won't rip the skin of a rice pudding. However it will work and will allow people to use the Internet. It won't run Crysis and photo editing would be painful. Netflix/Amazon Prime will be fine.
PC World have at least gone sensible, finally, by tagging it social. It's for Daftbook and other such social media.
As for only £80. If that was a car you'd be going from £18,000 to £26,000 which is not viable for many. The same old argument crops up for every PC deal, oh spend a little more they say. It's only £20 here, 30 quid there. It all adds up.
The guy bigdeal66 is speed obsessed. Boy racer methinks. CPU Score means feck all in a laptop like this. Laptop users generally only need a laptop like this. Any more powerful CPU, graphics, etc. are totally irrelevant. I talk from very many years of experience. Being building and using computers for over 30 years.
Boy racer ;) them days are long gone,just don't see what the feck this has got over a Tab for less ?

How does it compare to this Xiaomi Mi5?
https://www.spemall.com/search.html?cate_id=0&keywords=mi5



​Specs-wise comparison here

Note that the Mi5 comes in 3 models (ram & storage-wise), has NFC, infrared, a larger screen & thinner body (admittedly in exchange for a lower-capacity battery) - all of which appeal to me.

What are the prices of the 3 different Mi5 models btw?

just don't bother buying this phone. I have used it in the past for about 2 months. The signal strength is rubbish.
Its a 4G handset but you'll be lucky if 4G signal flies in and lasts 1min.
It has also another problem of rebooting itself.
Although the finger print sensor is quick, but not as quick as Honor phones
I haven't seen anything negative before about signal strength, where do you live?
​It lacks UK 4g Bands so signal strength will be rubbish. In effect you are buying a tablet and not a mobile phone.

Maybe you should read some of the posts where I've mentioned that my OnePlus 3 has all the UK bands but my Xiaomi Mi Note, like this ZUK Z2, is missing band B20 and my Xiaomi Mi Note actually got better signal than my OnePlus 3.

B20 is only vital if you want to use 4G on O2. If you're on any other network then you'll be fine. However, this is coming from experience in London - I don't see how it would behave differently in other parts of the world but I reckon the phone itself will make more of a different compared to with what bands it will support, unless you're on O2.


​B20/ 800 is best 4g band on all networks in UK not just O2. 4g phone can combine all 4g bands available and get greater data bandwidth. That's the main attraction of cat 12-13 snapdragon 820 modem. I would not buy any phone without proper UK bands, just because it can make voice calls on 2g but data download speed is poor due to lack of proper bands.

'Operating system provided Windows 7 Pro' - the Windows 10 upgrade bird has flown.
This is a completely different scenario and the bird is still in the coop. :)
It’s a business class PC and comes with as Lenovo state:
“Windows 7 Professional 64 preinstalled through downgrade rights in Windows 10 Pro.”
In effect you have a full license for Win10 Pro and can choose to use the pre-installed Win7 Pro for as long as you like and move to Win10 in the future if you prefer at any time.
This is only available with Windows Pro on certain business PCs and not on consumer PCs with the Home version.
MS have been doing this for years.
Absolutely nothing in either the product summary or tech spec to confirm that.
Look on the Levono site as that's what I was directly quoting from and search for Windows Downgrade rights which is a long term thing.

Hi, the deal seems to have rallied - still cold (as expected) but not as cold as it was! If anyone has bought and used the voucher code GOLD100 successfully - please can they advise? I'm not sure who added it here, but seems to be for TV's only - if it works, I need to speak to Customer Services.Thanks.
Keep your eye out on dell outlet usually have discount codes too.

Just got a scratch and dent xps 8900 for £607 after cashback.

i7 6000k, 2 TB 7200 rpm,, 512 GB SSD, Bluray DVD/RW, 16 GB ddr4 Ram, heatsink, Windows 10, half decent motherboard, average 460w PSU. No GPU but gtx 1060 fits.

Ignoring the rest i.e the average PSU and motherboard the components alone are cheaper than buying separately and can easily be taken out and put into another case.


Edited By: andy1989 on Aug 17, 2016 13:26
At a time when people are getting excited about the performance leap of RX470/480 and the GTX 1060, it's hard to generate excitement around a computer built around a GTX 960. I appreciate you have said you wouldn't want to build your own, which is perfectly reasonable, but for those who do, they could build something around an RX470 or 480 for around £630 - £640, including OS, substituting hard drive for a 250GB SSD and taking the memory down to 8GB, with the full retail warranty on each component, rather than the usual one year warranty that comes with most prebuilt PCs. The full retail warranty is worth the extra, for me. Still, it seems an okay deal if you are happy enough with a GTX 960, though it would be good to know what the power supply is.

In fairness, I checked out the full spec - whatever else people think about PC World, kudos to them for a fairly detailed spec listing - and notice that the Lenovo comes with card reader, mouse and keyboard, so that bumps up the price of the partpicker build by £10 - £15. PSU 400W. Still, that 1 year warranty is off-putting, to me, compared to the often longer warranties on the individual components if building your own, for those who like that option. A quick look around and I couldn't find a cheaper deal from a high street vendor.

The £599.97 is a clearance price. So stock will be limited and could well be exdisplay.
While at the moment it doesn't reflect a big saving. My experience is it will drop another £100-£200 in the next 4 weeks. Thursday used to be the main price change day, so could be worth stalking it.
With the Win10 free upgrade being over, they will be trying to dispose of Win8.1 machines to take in fresh stock. There will be bargains to be found but it will involve looking.

The Win10 free upgrade may not be over depending on your personal circumstances. See the article here

Isn't it the case that if an SSD fails you have Zero chance to recover any files, whereas with a HDD at least you can recover files from the non corrupt sectors?

Lol you got that completely the wrong way round.

If your standard mechanical drive fails you are pretty much stuffed unless you get lucky or can afford to send it off to a data recovery lab

In most cases and all the cases I have worked with a failed ssd will become almost read only as in you can pull the files off and that's about it.... Which is what you want

Looks a good deal to me with the 10% off - just a pity about that mechanical disk.
Buy an enclosure and ssd, connect to laptop, clone drive, install ssd, put HDD in enclosure, format hdd, use HDD as external hard drive (for pc/mac/Xbox/whatever else)
You could yes - but computers (especially at this price) should be coming with an SSD as standard these days.
They're still not popular enough to completely replace hdd because of the price. Those that are very computer literate would see a 1TB HDD way better value than a 256GB SSD because it's more.
When the price difference becomes more even, then it will be in most laptops as standard.
Which is more important then getting one with a SSD or higher processor. I thought the processor. Also is the trade in at curry’s a good deal as I can get £125 for my old laptop which makes this deal for me. Anywhere else advisable to get money for the old beast 15 acer aspire.
Depends on what you're using it for:

light use (browsing, multimedia) = get a lesser processor and as much storage as you need (which may not be that much)

Gaming = at least i5 + dedicated gpu (not 920m-940m though) and enough storage for all files and games. (ssd for fast load times)

Video editing = ssd for cache, quad core Intel, enough storage for all video files

There's not that much difference these days - and we're not talking about a sub £300 laptop but one in the £600 mid range. At this point I see lack of an SSD as a serious omission.

I had the chance to review this phone recently and it had serious issues maintaining a signal. I was sent a replacement, but it was no different. I usually get 2-3 bars of 4G signal on EE in my house, but the Lenovo struggled to get a signal at all, or was only able to get one bar when my Moto G4 and Lumia 950 both had 3 bars on EE 4G.
It's worth considering if you are in an area with poor signal.
I also found that the casing could get very hot when gaming, or simply using the camera. The speakers are excellent quality though.
Different brands of smartphone show very different conservative/optimistic bars while in fact holding onto the signal identically.
Would've been more helpful if you'd reported your experience with actual call stability and Ookla Speedtest results comparing on one network like for like.

While true that different brands of smartphone report signal differently, the Lenovo K5 was the only phone of the three to completely drop signal (going to emergency calls only), where the other two phones would show 2 bars of 4G, and were still able to take calls and connect to mobile data.

How do you get Windows 10 Pro on this as mentioned in the spec. now that we have gone past the free upgrade period? Do they send an upgrade DVD?
Some business class systems are sold with what is called downgrade rights. So they come with a license for the current version of Windows Professional but also the right to use an older version. In this case 7 is installed and it will come with the media for 10. So you can move to 10 whenever you like, say after a bump on the head when you lose your common sense. :p
It only applies to the Professional version for selected PCs.

I got this. Build quality was awful and I ended up sending it back because the CPU fan stopped working completely.

Dell Vostro 3559 is a much better price. No SSD but you can sell the HDD you get with it and buy a cheap SSD (I'd advise 256GB since the HD 520 can play a few newish games)

Also it does NOT have a full HD screen. It's 1366x768

Just one thing. These DO NOT have an R9 chipset. I spent over an hour in my local PCs world trying to get to the bottom on it and it has an r5 chipset. With ddr3 ram NOT the stated ddr4. Take warning if you've bought one check the specs.
I rang PCs world on Sunday who said oh really have 10% off any laptop. However. As on now Tuesday evening it's still on the website as an R9 machine. Shocking

Sorry to disappoint, but this is a listing error on the Currys website. I know this because I have seen it in store, and the spec sheet lists the dedicated graphics as an r5 m430 or some such.

I actually bought the slightly more expensive i7 version of this exact laptop last week. That was priced at £750 with the R9 M380. I did think to myself it was too good to be true but I bought it anyway. There is nowhere on the exterior packaging that discloses the model of graphics card. naturally, the first thing I did when I got it home is go to device manager, and there was the much weaker R5 M430 listed.

I've bought a Yoga 700 instead, which has a 940m - still a bit pants, but about the best you're going to get in a convertible laptop at the moment.
I m in the market for a new laptop and went to Currys to see this laptop. The screen is sharp and its 'relatively' light but the plastic body didnt feel too solid. May be ok at this price point but there are some other cheaper laptops out there with a better chasis (e.g. Asus E403).

I was about to buy this, however when I checked the lenovo website for current models none of them have the r9 m380.
I was kinda foolish to believe that a laptop this price would have the r9 m380. Its comparable to a gtx 960m.
No it's not. You're thinking of the M390 which is very much comparable to the 960m and a whole heap more expensive. The M380 is more like a 945m in terms of performance and not a million miles from a 950m. Not blistering, but not slow either.
The Lenovo store site not showing that it's got a dedicated graphics card is nothing unusual. There are plenty of reviews of this model that confirm (with pictures that the dedicated graphics models do exist).

Yeah, im a little out of touch at the moment. I cant be that hard to copy the specs off the box onto the Currys website.

You can get a laptop with a Skylake i5-6200U and better integrated GPU (HD 520) with the same RAM/HDD for the same price/cheaper.
Also I had the B50-80 (with i5-6200U) and build quality was awful. I replaced it with a much better Dell Vostro 3559. It was £320 but seems to be £360 now.

Purchased a dell xps 13 it went back the same day constant crashing fully updated.

Came back to this or a ASUS Zenbook UX303UA.

Scan are a brilliant company to deal with. :-)
Could have done with dedicated graphics but heat nonetheless
Lenovo 710S is a better ultra portable especially at 1.1kg compared to the Yoga 12. Just wait for the price to drop.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A81B4cyeg5A
nice but unfortunately not a great laptop overall especially for the cost. In my experience consumer laptops are generally overpriced and don't last as long as business grade ones - like the Lenovo X series or older T models which seem to last forever. just another mac copy!

Is this better than an Dell Xps 13. Its a hell of a lot cheaper.
​thinkpad hardware are top spec
XPS13 blows the Yoga 12 out of the water.
It doesn't - depends on the model.
This is the previous gen ThinkPad (hence why it's cheaper) and the specs are better than the base model XPS13 (which will cost you more) = Lenovo has i7 processor is slightly faster than the i5-6200u, has double the RAM (8Gb instead of 4Gb) and SSD (256Gb instead of 128Gb) a touchscreen and longer warranty period.
XPS13 blows it out of the water. You need to use both of these in the real world rather than quoting paper specs regarding machines you're unfamiliar with.
Well, am kind of familiar with both = I played around with current model XPS13 at a conference (had it about half a day to present stuff rom) and my previous work laptop was the 1st gen ThinkPad Yoga 12 with an i5 (this is the 2nd gen) and I have to say - I prefer the ThinkPad, the screen res is higher on the Dell but most of the time I write code so higher res wouldn't benefit me (have a Surface Pro 3 at work with Win 10 too and find the resolution too high, have to scale it down)

I've been using IBM/Lenovo laptops since IBM's original Thinkpad range. I've owned Thinkpads in the past and I even have one of Lenovo's current laptops as well as the XPS 13. One thing that has happened since Lenovo bought out IBM's laptop division is that they've cheapened the products and the manufacturing and component quality has gone down in the name of cost cutting. Quality is nothing like the original Thinkpads.

As an ultraportable, the Yoga 12 is a joke. 1.6kg without PSU and 1" thick when in tablet mode? The thing is a brick. Poor real world battery life, atrocious Adobe colour gamut, average keyboard, silly hardware whitelist, paper display problems etc etc. It's not a terrible laptop (when it works) but it's not a premium laptop that you would choose over the best of the best.

Dell on the other hand, have maintained a premium line within their laptop range. The XPS13 is simply superb. Quite easily the best Windows ultraportable out there. 'Playing around with the laptop' at a conference is not using the laptop on a day to day basis. In real world long term usage, the XPS13 blows the Yoga 12 completely out of the water; they're not even in the same market segment - the XPS13 is in a premium tier above the Yoga 12.

Did anyone else see the Argos supplement together with the Daily Mail today? (Saturday)

It showed the Tab 2 Full HD tablet reduced from £179.99 down to £149.99 yet the website still shows it at the higher price...

Thanks for the post. Might try and reserve one for collection and see what I get...
well my nearest Argos only had the tablet at £119. can confirm it does have 2gb ram
makershaker
right... gonna get the 2gb Ram version then at £119.99.
The version at £109.99 has the correct specs on the Argos / Ebay site = 1gb RAM

Just read "SugarRays" post, he went to the shop and checked the spec of both and they were identical, both had 2GB RAM. If you click his link you would see he's talking about the £109 model.

The spec listed on Argos is for the wrong model anyway, it doesn't say 1GB RAM in the spec either its in the Q&A.

Originally this device (A10-30F) had 1GB of RAM but as two people above have said, it now has 2GB of RAM.

Personally I would reserve and collect in store though as its possible they still might have some old stock with 1GB RAM :|

Just tested the code 5VCLEN and it gives 10% off. Red and silver is in stock at the moment if anyone is interested still.

Just silver in stock now, but no matter. Just to let you know that the 5VCLEN code (which has changed from 5% off to 10% since i posted it) seems to work at 10% off any item in the entire store, even this yoga tablet for example
http://imgur.com/t3OpdwH

Frustratingly for me this code doesnt stack with student discount, so the ideapad is £404 with this code, and £404 with student discount haha, so not such a great deal for me, and the original code did stack bringing it to something like £380, which i should have jumped on if i had the money ready.

Lastly like i said it works for everything in the store so you might be better spending £20 more and getting a yoga 510 which has the IPS display (this one says optional?) and also has touchsreen, Downside is less ram and a 1tb hard drive instead.

Would this machine run ITunes ok if I ditched the Acer?
Install Windows 10 on the C720, much better hardware. Typing this on my Win10 C720.
Does the keyboard and trackpad on the laptop work in Windows 10 ?
How is the general performance ?

Keyboard and trackpad work fine, I think all of the hardware is supported. General performance is excellent. Its not a powerhouse, but the 2955u is a pretty useful CPU for most tasks. I don't think you can get anything better for near the price.

Why the cold votes?

A lot will be from antipathy to Amazon. Others will be from people who would rather order directly from Hong Kong and take a punt on not having warranty repairs.

I went for one as I wanted a phone with 2GB of memory, and a Snapdragon CPU. I don't need a big screen, or one with full HD resolution. An equivalent Moto G would be ~ £125

​This thing is great. good keyboard, track pad OK, but it's nippy and it's got decent storage for a Chromebook. zips along nicely.
I've got a bluetooth mouse attached as I'm not a big trackpad fan.
I'm super impressed with it all so far.

Me too, works a treat with the bluetooth mouse!
got it today. it's superb.

Sometimes it's really frustrating not having office but that coming in a decent form with android apps. Please don't install windows on it! I've got a HP Stream 11 with Windows 10 and it is so slow! Always updating in background, issues with big updates and slow as end up saving everything to SD card because Windows and office take up 90% of the 32GB alone. In short Windows makes a good chromebook a rubbish laptop

How's the performance on web browsing? Do you feel any lag as some reviews mentioned it is a bit slow?

Working well. Currently 11 tabs open and no lag. Citrix and Teamviewer sessions running at the same time as well.
Streamed some HD videos from YouTube earlier without issues.

seems its gone up to £399.99 now! oO
showing as £399 now, this still available anywhere?
Er, link now leads to cost of £399, not quite the deal as posted. Maybe time to expire..?
I ordered one of these and just been updating it. However it is constantly shutting down and is extremely hot to touch near the power supply. I guess it will be going back.

There's every chance that an ex corporate machine doesn't get moved much. I've maybe taken my HP640 to three or four meetings, and taken it home a similar number of times - the rest of the time it just lives on a docking station. Hence the keyboard/trackpad also remain unused.

Yeah, my experience is that generally the ex-business ultraportables are in excellent condition. I think those that get the bigger ThinkPads tend to use them as a primary computer, but an ultraportable is generally for those who don't want the weight (and therefore can't justify the weight; probably not mission critical).

I've bought maybe three X200 (two girlfriends -- at different times -- and myself), one X60, two X61s, and my current X230. I also frequent eBay for ThinkPads and my experience is that you're 100% right.

Firstly think why they are a refurb, I use an X1 at work and I have had 3 replacements from Lenovo in that time and now on the 3rd gen and it is still no better 3 replacements in less than 2 years is a sign of big problems. We have over 100k people in our company and this laptop has been removed as a preferred workstation because of how unreliable it has been. Now waiting on my replacement machine which is not an X1 and I can't wait!!!

100K people in a company, you leaving in a chinese factory town or something? did you build the laptop off of scrap pieces? that would explain why it doesnt work... j/k

Might be good value at half the price.
These were good in the day. If you're after a heavy chunky black plastic laptop that runs hot then there are cheaper ways to get one.
Excellent laptop, but this is way above the going rate for these.
A quick look on ebay finds plenty for far less even with some kind of warranty. For instance newandusedlaptops4u have one for £135 (ebay item number 371651275951)

These are so old now. Spend £300 on a new laptop! Very cold.
A Sandy Bridge i5 is still competitive as CPUs haven't really gotten any quicker except for the iGPU.
A new £300 i5 laptop won't have the built quality of this. No point comparing this class of machine with the cheap plastic throwaway laptops you can buy.
The closest would be maybe a deal for an i5 HP ProBook.
Of course, like I said this more than the going rate for a ThinkPad T420 and used Haswell ThinkPad T440's, EliteBook 840 G1's etc. can be had for under £300 often with remaining Lenovo or HP warranty. Even Broadwell (ThinkPad T450's, Elitebook 840 G2) might be possible for under £300.
Must be like 5 years old, sandy bridge cpu
Great laptop, easily worth £125, may be £150 with 6 months warranty and a tested battery, but £220 is way too much.

Very very slow running windows 10.
slower than my 13 years old work computer running windows XP.

you obviously didn't install it properly.. my unit is working perfectly.
have you ever to try install firefox on it? or actually running anything from it?
like loading bbc iplayer?
Firefox works. Funny thing it plays YouTube in full HD without lag but even keyboard gave lags. Bluetooth and wireless one
When I upgraded to W10 it installed default GPU drivers. I got atom drivers from Intel website and it is all good. You might want to try that.
I will try but I don't really like Windows 10. Besides couldn't upgrade to 10 at all. Regarding lags on Bluetooth It's a design fault. WiFi is using same antenna as Bluetooth and when data is coming keyboard lags. My wireless keyboard from pc doesn't lag at after being plugged into usb port.
Ah, cool. I concur with WiFi/BT issues. Common with the cheapo atom chipset.
I got a different one with same chipset and Windows 10 and no issues at all.
That's good. I've another z3735f device that is impossible to use a bluetooth mouse with at the same time. BT keyboard is fine, so long as you don't type quickly!

It's £240 for a not too bad spec..... the build quality will be crap, pretty much any laptop under £400 is crappily built, yes the screen won't be great, again it's cheap, the CPU will be crap compared to a desktop i3 equivalent.

There's a reason laptops used to be better built, they cost at least twice the price, same reason why a refurbished IBM business laptop is better built, it originally cost much more than this.

You have to set your expectations accordingly, this is incredibly cheap for a semi decent specification but something has to give and that's all the above can be found 'wrong' with this sort of product.

As for the SSHD comments, ollie87 explains all..... it's such a shame people probably vote this cold due to their lack of understanding of the product.
Terrible build I bought one and regret it.

Is it separate so you can install an OS on it? Must take a lot of management to keep your Windows folder under 8GB - mine is currently 14GB...

Only the files required to boot into the OS are saved on the SSD.


That's not has it works either!

Hybrid drives move the content that is used most often to the SSD portion. It isn't necessarily the operating system.

I bought this on Sunday evening and it arrived on Tuesday. The box it came in was clearly second hand but the tablet itself looked brand new (no scratches or marks of any kind).

This is to replace an ageing Samsung Tab 2 10.1 which is now crawling despite a factory reset and all apps stripped off of it.

I'd originally budgeted about £250 to pick up a new tablet but as it's just for light browsing and gaming this looked to be good enough to take a punt on.

Browsing seems fine. A lot faster than the samsung but not as good as my work's iPad Air. It's light and thin so easily luggable (and to hold up when lying down). Build quality is ok (it's bit plasticky and it creaked disturbingly when I grabbed it once).

It copes very well with the Sentinel game but Candy Crush seems to stutter (not all the time but it is noticeable, the Samsung is better here *shrug*).

Can confirm that 1GB ram doesn't seem to limit this in day-to-day browsing and gaming. The speakers are very, very good - I am really impressed with them.

The only negative I can find, and I haven't figured out if it's just an annoyance, or something that will make it unusable in the long term, is the screen resolution. 1080 x 800 just feels to small nowadays.

Yeah only old stock came with KitKat, had mine for nearly 4 months now and they just pushed a new update for Lollipop a few days ago.
​how was that update...Ive been holding off in case of horror stories (I used to own an Asus)
I haven't updated yet either, as its already running fine on 5.0.1, plus its best to reset after so that means installing apps again and I can't be bothered at the moment.
FYI if you have lots of apps and want to reset then "Helium" is great for backing up your apps to pc (root isn't required), works best for me just backing up app data instead of app with data.

Thanks OP.
Just reserved pearl white one in Argos for 139.99.
Just a word of caution:
Argos only gives you 1 year warranty.
John Lewis gives you 2 years.
Good point but you do in fact get 2 years warranty on electrical items under EU law. Even if we come out of the EU the law will still apply from date of purchase. If we had people in power who actually had some brains our government would have made the retailers tell you this. JL are only stating your statutory rights under EU law. If you had a problem with the item after 12 months you tell argos or whoever you wish to make a claim for repair under EU law. You could also exercise your rights under UK Consumer law which gives you protection up to 6 years. They cannot turn around and say your product is only guaranteed for 12 months after you state you wish to make a warranty claim but they will try it on if you don't stand up for your rights. You need to quote the right wording but it's easily found using Google. But it is easier just to buy from JL and if Argos, Tesco and Curry's only had some brains also, they might notice just how many sales they miss out on when compared to JL.
Its an EU directive (1999/44/EC), which means EU country's create their own laws that conform to those directives, in the UK that's the Consumer Rights Act 2015, and the consumer rights act states if you return goods that are faulty six months after the purchase date then it's up to you to prove they were faulty when you bought them.

Yes it is, but you can still claim your rights under European law which do apply in this country however our own Consumer Act supersedes that anyway. My son actually used our own UK acts to get Currys to repair a faulty tv after 2 years 6 months. It was not subject to an extended warranty. As it was a Samsung it was easy to access the service menu and establish total usage, approximately 2500 hours, well below the expected life expectancy. Searching on the forums it would appear that failure of the panel was quite common. 2500 hours would be less than a years use for me so also quite easy to state fault was a manufacturing defect and not fair wear and tear.

This is exactly what I was saying, our Consumer Rights Act is our law based on that directive, once that was created it trumps any EU directive.

Your son did exactly what I said using the Consumer Rights Act, the fact that it was a common problem with that panel proved it was a fault that existed at the time of purchase. Without proving that they would have been perfectly within their rights to refuse to do anything because it falls outside the six month period.

Thanks OP.
Just reserved pearl white one in Argos for 139.99.
Just a word of caution:
Argos only gives you 1 year warranty.
John Lewis gives you 2 years.
Good point but you do in fact get 2 years warranty on electrical items under EU law. Even if we come out of the EU the law will still apply from date of purchase. If we had people in power who actually had some brains our government would have made the retailers tell you this. JL are only stating your statutory rights under EU law. If you had a problem with the item after 12 months you tell argos or whoever you wish to make a claim for repair under EU law. You could also exercise your rights under UK Consumer law which gives you protection up to 6 years. They cannot turn around and say your product is only guaranteed for 12 months after you state you wish to make a warranty claim but they will try it on if you don't stand up for your rights. You need to quote the right wording but it's easily found using Google. But it is easier just to buy from JL and if Argos, Tesco and Curry's only had some brains also, they might notice just how many sales they miss out on when compared to JL.
Sale of goods act u must be talking about
im glad you mentioned it as my hudl broke down right after 1 year
Sale of goods act would apply to all goods purchased before October 2015. It has now been replaced with the Consumer Rights Act. Don't expect to call in on your rights if your electronics have got wet or have signs of being dropped.
What if theres a chip on it?
The fault has got nothing to do with it.
Whatts your advice?

Agree it a horrible trackpad - it's like the T series - T430 good, T440 bad, T450 good again. I am using 2x T430 at the moment (employer and customer site) and got my daughter a T450.
And I'm typing on my T440 - the missing buttons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! was one of the key things I look at when buying a laptop and tell others to try it. Not sure if I've ever used the 'nipple' in 10 years plus of having one!
Agreed the nipple is just there to please all the fanbois who would riot if Lenovo removed it.
Trackpad tech has gone miles since those days.

The trackpads on the T430s etc *were* pretty decent. The one on the X1 v3 that I'm currently typing on is pretty awful however!

You nippers with your T400s lol I remember having a T20 with NT4 Workstation (no PnP with that those were the days) and what a cracker of a laptop it was at the time then had a T21 with Win 2000 on it and thought it was the best machine ever. They were built like tanks and think I still have a T20 in the loft but not much use now phones have higher specs. I'm just off for my cup of ovaltine and take my dentures out for bed time (_;)
Haha. I had a 770, T60 and a couple of others before I got to T400s...

any deals on v1 and v3? as missing the f keys. thanks
I sold my x1 gen 3 to my friend for £400 a month back. He knows that was a bargain
You mean you had his trolleys down..
He was prepared to pay £500 for it as I bought the Asus gaming Laptop. But it was his birthday so I let him off £100
Is the keyboard a pain? Please

I haven't had any issues with it really. My friend still has my old x1 gen 1 and he loves it to bits. He uses it more than the lenovo helix he has.
The keyboard on my new Asus laptop is really annoying. They changed the size and shape of a lot of important keys so will take lot of time to get used to it. But I get bored of laptops very quick.

Are there any decent android tabs out there? Budget less than £200
Must be new as it is a gift.
Xiaomi tablets are really good, although you have to order from aliexpress website. Curry's had the Samsung s2 tablet reduced to £260.

Cold, buy a Nexus 7 2013 (New £99 or second hand ~£60) with double the specs and running Android 6.0.1 today. If you need the SD card slot, buy a second hand LG v500 (Gpad 8.3) for ~£70.
Right on. Had an ASUS Memo PAD HD 7 with very similar specs to this lenovo, and had to buy something else because the thing is unusable. Got a 2nd hand LG G Pad 8.3 in mint condition for £70 from CEX and it's like night and day.
