Looking at most of these they're not that great spec even at the discounted rate TBH.

For example the Yoga being discounted has a 7th gen CPU but is currently more expensive than the 8th Gen which is better specced. With the reduction it will just be a similar price but with a much weaker CPU. Think the current prices are inflated.

Have to agree. Even on Lenovo's discounted prices I often still find them cheaper in PC world. I have had one or two bargains but not often.
I went to school once. Taught me enough to figure out that none of these are anywhere near 37% off and even if they were, they might just be competitively priced then.
£249 isn't bad for a new Explorer VR Headset when you consider that these cost about £200 on eBay.
Don't see teh discount codes, prices haven't changed on site, anyoane have teh code?
*correction* The code is FLASHSALE

PLEASE DON'T SUPPORT LENOVO!

A couple of years ago, they were found shipping hardware with pre-installed adware which tracked online activity and even allowed snooping when users were on otherwise-secure sites (eg banking sites). Please google "superfish lenovo".

Example article:
thenextweb.com/ins…rs/

They claimed ignorance and then helped users to uninstall this software.

Soon after, they did it again with other similar software:

gadgets.ndtv.com/lap…952

As good as their machines are, they are an extremely shady company.

Good point that, I even recall making mention of such on here also - about 2 Year's or so (how time flies, huh?).

Just under 1 Year in I'd all but forgotten about alllllllll of that, to the extent that I've even featured a few Lenovo Products in my Deal Threads (ironic, no?).

But to be fair (from what I recall of it 2+ Year's back?), Lenovo's supervise thing ONLY affected their Windows based Device's (PC's, Laptop's, Tablet's).

And of those Windows based Device's (PC's, Laptops, Tablet's), only some Model's of each Device 'type' were affected - so it wasn't across the board (or so the Lenovo said at the time anyway?).

Either way, the Model No's of the affected Systems were mentioning, including ways to then get rid of it, etc, etc, etc? - (I'm not 100% sure that those extensive 'tutorials' (as they were at the time) still exist in their entirety, or whatever?.

Hmmmmmmmm.

But what I also do remember soon after that superfish scandal thing of theirs blew up is this, Lenovo DID promise to behave itself, and/or stop putting the superfish of the Lenovo Device's of theirs that hasn't as yet been shipped out! (eg. the one's still yet in their factories, yet to be sent out to the warehouse's of their supplies, etc ... )

Whether they kept to their promise at the time or not, is an entirely different animal in itself?.

But they did offer extensive tutorials at the time for anyone affected, and/those wanting to either check if their Device's were affected, and/or were simply interested in removing that pointless thing from their Device's in the first instance altogether ...

I didn't own any Lenovo Device's at the time though, so I naturally quickly forgot (I was more with the HP Device's at the time, which sadly flopped on me, lol, but that's a different story, hehehe).

It's a shame, otherwise I would retained all the necessary superfish 'paperwork'.

I'm having some Lenovo Device's now though, so I really really need to check what's what for real?!. :-(

On the up side, Android based Lenovo Device's (Phone's/Tablet's, etc), were not affected by the superfish at the time - it was purely Lenovo Windows Device's only (though saying that, that was more than 2 Year's then?, but I doubt nowt has changed in relation to the Android front?).

I'm having Lenovo Device's in both the Windows and Android variants (as I'm sure many on here have similar combination a of Lenox Products in their arsenal too?).

It may be better to check allllll perhaps?.

Just to be safe? (rather than sorry, etc ... )
Just went for the Levano Explorer VR HMD and Controllers bundle for £250. Currently have a rift but use it with a laptop and the setup is a pain with 3 wired sensors that I have to install each time. So thought I would try this as it seems my rift with touch controllers and 3 sensors is selling for around £350 at the moment. If not in the same ball park as my rift can sell it for around the same price as this, if it does the job goodbye rift.

For anyone with a gaming PC/Laptop who has not tried a Vive/Rift/WMR then I highly recommend it. It is literally and figuritively a game changer.

It's always far cheaper to upgrade your own RAM than for a company to do it. I wouldn't want to know how much they're charging for 16GB.

With Windows Mixed Reality yes, though dongles are cheap. Rift and Vive don't use it though
