    the much superior IPS 1080p option only costs an extra £10 so for those that want to go with this deal for goodness sakes get the IPS panel. Your eyes will thank you.

    + £10 for backlit keyboard definately worth it. this should be standard as it is in the US.

    Personally i find it a bit of a pain, first thing i do is switch it off.

    Shame that RAM is soldered and they are asking an extra £90 for another 8gb. Which makes the total price not that attractive.

    Does anyone know if there's an SODIMM slot as well as the soldered RAM? Lenovo forums seem to indicate there is for the Ideapad 3 Slim, but not sure if this applies to all models

    Nice - Passmark: 16519

    the IGPU would be good in this, tho would want to wait for a Zen 4 CPU with the newer IGPU (edited)

    Yes, that's quite high scoring for such low cost.

    Looks like alot of laptop for the money tbh. You can install Windows on there and not activate it so that isn't an issue. Either that or you could install a flavour of Linux. Hot.

    8 GB DDR4-3200MHz (Soldered).
    256GB SSD M.2 2242 PCIe.

    So not a great system for upgrades unless it also support the more regular M.2 2280 SSDs.

    False advertising from AMD calling this a 7th gen part to trick people into thinking its zen 4
    Smoggy1970's avatar
    It's not called 7th gen.

    Worse than that, if any of the RAM becomes defective then you have a worthless unrepairable laptop.

    It comes up at the same price for me (using the VIP members link) was going to post this for people to use, but it's the same price for the general public anyway LOL.

    It was for AMD Ryzen™ 3 7330U processor. The SAVE15 does not work anymore. You could not reach this price with AMD Ryzen 5 7530U
