Lenovo 520s i5 laptop £340 @ Lenovo Via Perkbox

Found 12th AugEdited by:"LovemeABargain"
Never posted before but was looking for a laptop for my daughter to start college...came across this one which was available through Perkbox with extra discount...thought I would share as I think it's a bargain when the i3 320s with half the RAM is still around the £340 price.
Apologies if already posted, not intersted in getting shouted down if it's not your bag...just hoping to share the bargain with like-minded folks.

When i click on get deal it says i need a passcode whats that all about ?
Can't find it on the website either
This is via perkbox which is an employer reward website so you would need to go via perkbox to get it at this price.
I linked to it through Perkbox which is a company rewards system...think it's getting adopted quite a bit now so ask your employer I guess

Its for perkbox users people. Abusing it always end up affecting all genuine users!
Thanks OP. Think this is a great deal. I’ve been looking for a decent 14” Laptop for a few weeks and monitoring HUKD.

I think this has to be the best value one I’ve seen for all round specs and price point. Ordered.
Absolutely great machine for this price
Thanks, been looking for a good laptop deal to pop up for a few days now and bit at this one. Heat

So was I (I posted the Very deal!). I was giving it the weekend to see if anything else came up. Glad I waited.

The Very one has an 8th gen i5, whereas this only has 7th gen. But I can live with that for the £90 saving.
Can the SSD be upgraded in this machine as well as the RAM?

Are you including the ! at the end? That's part of the code too. It opened the page fine for me.

This one says 8th gen?
Featuring a 8th Gen. Intel Core i7 processor and up to 8 GB DDR4 memory, the Ideapad 520s delivers a surprising amount of power. Seamlessly switch between web tabs and run multiple applications at the same time–you’ll be able to multi-task with ease.

That is on the landing page for the range of 520s 14”, however this particular model has an i5-7200U which is a 7th gen. This isn’t probably why it’s on offer, they want to clear stock. It doesn’t make it a bad deal by any means though.

Other models have the 8th gen and dedicated graphics card, but not this one. I think the blurb is basically listing the top spec possible
Does the one in OP have a backlit keyboard, doesn't mention in specs but a reviewer says it has?

80X2006NUK is definitely right, as confirmed in 'my orders' whether we'll actually get it remains to be seen.....
ordered thx OP
Beware of the battery on these, although it states 12 hours it will probably only be about 2 hours. They have terrible 2 cell batteries and dim screens. When you up the brightness, it drains the battery
I didn’t get order confirmation yet. Received an email saying order is submitted. Money is out from PayPal credit. But I had an issue at the end of the order processing.

Ordered. Thanks OP. Fingers crossed it arrives.
This is probably the best affordable laptop deal I've ever seen on here. Unbelievable price. The cheapest of this model goes for is £450 on Box, which was at £400 at one point.

There are great reviews on this laptop and to get this model for £340 is an absolute steal. And I thought the £400 Box one was a steal haha!

Thanks OP. Just ordered. Hope it goes through. Perfect for me since I've just sold my old laptop a week ago for £300.
Thanks - just ordered! Confirmation email received and no error messages!
