Oh no, missed the 499 code :/ Might it invalidate the Quidco? Got an extra 6% off with the childcare vouchers though so not all bad.

I don't think it will invalidate Quidco, I'm going to purchase so we will see - in about 8 months!
Tempted to cancel but will need another gift card sent out then and the offer might have expired so item OOS.
Good for Photoshop???

Yes, it's got a very competent processor and decent integrated graphics. Much better than any Intel processor on the graphics front. To get anything significantly better you'd need to spend a lot more and go for something with a dedicated graphics card.
I've been searching for an Ideapad for a while, I've found nothing within the spec that I'm looking for for this price. I just bought a refurbished one from Laptops Direct and am having to return that due to issues, absolutely delighted to get this one!

I used reward gateway to take off 8% by paying in gift cards (scheme from work), Quidco for 12% and LAPTOPS499 to take another £50 off the order!

Thanks OP!

I know what you mean - I think there is an option to collect in store and pay then? So you could reserve it and pay when your gift cards come through

If it is a TN screen, dealbreaker for me.

Was just about to buy this one currys.co.uk/gbu…tml

Now having seen this, I'm not sure which is better?
Is the touchscreen a bit gimmicky and more likely to break? Or a genuine improvement?
I'm struggling to tell from the specs which is better
A lot of people of another thread reporting that the hinges on the Lenovo 2-in-1 touchscreen break quite quickly. It's put me off this style of laptop, now looking for just a regular one but can't decide which one to get!

The spec are VERY similar, if you're not fussed about the touch screen, I'd just go for your original. Honestly I just prefer the model in this deal because of the flexibility, even though it's probably just a novelty.

Someone above just said about the hinges having issues on this model too, so probably best to go for the one you linked! Especially with the £50 off, although cash back may not be applicable?
TN screen on a 2 in 1 convertible laptop? What a joke.

Lenovo really cheap out on their laptop's display this year. Same on the S340 range.
win2630/10/2019 16:29

No, not on a display like this.


THANK YOU 🏻 🏻 🏻 🏻 🏻 🏻 🏻

I just need a computer for Photo editing. I do have a monitor that I believe is good but I just need either a laptop or a desktop. I need help!

Took the words right out of my mouth win26. Wouldn't also like to do Video editing, CAD, Movie watching on this display.
I can't really find any reason not to buy this one instead hotukdeals.com/dea…361
Seems better on most metrics, although I'm by no means the best judge of these things
Price isn't correct for that model. The Ryzen 5 with 256 GB SSD is £499 after discount. The Ryzen 3 with 128GB SSD is £449.

You not going to get IPS for the price so not sure were you are getting comment about "cheap out".

Have you seen or even used one ?

Yes, I have seen it, it is truly awful and would advise anyone to see it in store first, most people don't. it's just an average TN display with bad viewing angle.
You're getting less for your money, especially here in the UK. Last year IPS display was standard on the Yoga range.

It's £549 before the code and £499 after code. If you go in store they automatically apply the £50 discount.
Actually it's £449 after the code - purchased thanks op.
Thank you. I've ordered one

The Acer Swift 3 is worth looking at. All Aluminium, IPS screen and backlit keyboard. Maybe wait for a discount code, has been cheaper at £450 before.
2 in 1 is a gimmick to me, after a while, you're not going to use the tent or tablet mode, but touchscreen is useful though.

Oh fab thanks for that, I've been looking for a while and was after something of that spec and no bigger than 14" . I'll add that to my list!
RAM's soldered and not upgradable on this, right?

There two model. The Ryzen 5 / 256 GB SSD that is the one listed at the top of this post is £549 before voucher. The slower Ryzen 3 with 128GB SSD which is one in the "get deal" is £499 before voucher. Just make sure you get the right one.
Was umming and arrring about it yesterday. Went into PC World today and it looks like a nice machine. With £2.50 TCB as the clincher, I've just ordered one.

£499 - £50 - 12%TCB - £2.50 TCB bonus = £400 odd

That's a very good price for a touch screen laptop. It's not a gimmick. We use £2000 Dell laptops at work and the touch screen is great for those who don't get on with trackpads. Once you start scrolling through web pages with your fingers you'll see what a drag using the trackpad really is.

If you go in through quidco and take the AMD link it takes you to the Ryzen 5 reduced to £499 with a further £50 of with the code. Unless we're all strangely capable of some tech manipulative voodoo!? The black model doesn't have the initial reduction. Trust me, I've bought one and it worked.

Agreed with Geraint, I have one at home that I purchased for that price. Ryzen 5, so I beg to differ.

I doubt it would go any lower, it was £449 last time and back up to £599. Unless eBay comes up with a 15 % off code.
