Seems like many people are having their laptops delivered much earlier than the delivery estimate stated by Lenovo. If delivery time was putting you off getting this deal, then you might want to reconsider.

That's right. Just add the 10 percent code now. You gotta sign up to the newsletter at the bottom of the homepage and check your email in about 20 minutes
Too bad this laptop doesn't have dual channel memory.
Wasn't this posted earlier this week by you @Zaidyzaid ?

Can't see it now - was it taken down for any reason?

Yes it was removed by mods.
I got the price with 4GB memory. Did anyone manage to get 395.55 with 8GB?

It should be £413.99 total. Add it to the basket. Then add the code you received in your email for signing up to the newsletter, which should take 10% off bringing it down to £372
Ignore the £395 price, mods changed my thread and added it on, it is incorrect. It's £413.99 before discount code and £372 after discount code.

ElectronicsFirst has mixed reviews across the Internet so people should be aware of the risks before buying

The code is unlikely to be valid and genuine at that price. It will work but will be an OEM, MSDN or academic version that could OK orbe deactivated in the future.
Worth upgrading to 16GB RAM

Too bad this laptop doesn't have dual channel memory.


The default configuration is dual channel: 4GB and 4GB. Other variations will be single channel: Review . Great deal, heated.......If you go for a Ryzen 7, this is possibly a better deal than the HP one costco did for £600 recently.

Downside to relying on the onboard RAM is if it goes faulty, the whole laptop is rendered useless. With RAM modules, atleast you can swap them out if faulty.
Is there a way to connect two external monitors?
Spec wise its a very good deal.
Good processor ,ssd,8Gb of Ram and a decent IPS screen

My only reservations would be the weak battery and plasticky build quality.
It's also very heavy at 2.8kg .
I bought a dell inspiron* with Ryzen 3550U and 8gb ram 256gb ssd from mcscom refurbished with windows 10 home installed looked brand new when it came boxed up with all the usual accessories.

I don't know crap about laptops.. was that a good deal ?

How much

it has HDMI out and USB C out so you could if you have HDMI and USB-C inputs on a monitor do it that way, alternativley depending on your monitors inputs you would need HDMI to VGA/DVI/Diaplay port adapter and a USB C to VGA/DVI/Diaplay port adapter.

Alternativley a USB -C Universal Dock may work, but that will add at least anopther £100 on to the cost.
Mine is coming out at £485 with the above changes

My mistake sorted now.
Quick question is the colour black or silver and is they keyboard backlight?

Also how big is the charger? It is USB. C?
Thanks @Zaidyzaid for this post, I've been looking for such good deal.

FYI, I added this:
1-YR On-site upgrade from 1-YR Depot/CCI delivery
£12.00
Part #5WS0K75702

And surprisingly it brings the total lower:
Item Subtotal£471.99
eCoupon: xx -£42.26
Enter Cart eCoupon ?
Total:£380.37
£63.40 VAT Included

Waited over two hours for a code, and still waiting.
Can’t seem to change these parts? - Change First Hard Drive to Dummy HDD
- Change 128GB SSD to 256GB SSD
- Change Display to 1080p IPS
How easy is it to install an operating system and what's the cheapest way?
Like for the windows link for 6.99
I am getting this at £368.99, but the 10% code will not work in conjunction with any other offer.
Not sure how it jumped down from £413.99.
Coupon valid for 30 days. Multiple ecoupons cannot be used at the same time, or in conjunction with any other promotion/offer (including Instant Savings).
Just looking at the other options and 3 year on site warranty for parts and labour for £40 is a bargain! Well worth adding

No, man. That is a review of the TN panel that this configuration ditches for the IPS which gets a very good review:

There's more info around this range here:

But I think for anyone who wants a big screen to move around the house then this seems a great price and decent quality.
