    Upgradeable ram? I can see soldered but no extra slot so assuming not

    Think there's also £50 cashback via Quidco if you opt in.

    I've done 6 of those deals I think with Quidco, only one has been accepted by the retailer.

    "Windows 10 Home in S mode"

    Is that a good or bad thing?
    Avatar
    It’s not a bad thing as it doesn’t matter either way because you can easily switch out of S mode. (edited)

    This looks well worth the extra £50. Much better screen, bigger battery, more cores/threads, more power efficient, better onboard GPU, backlit keyboard. Lose some storage space though. (edited)

    can you upgrade the ram on that one please? I see 16gb being useful in the next few years.

    ps just google it, looks not (edited)

    Does anyone know if this has back-lit keyboard? Not an issue for me but the picture looks as if it has one, just curious. (edited)
  6. Avatar
    Not a good screen and no option to increase ram. Ok for some office use but not for those who open a ton of tabs.
    Avatar
    From what I've learnt on here, the spec would make me feel the screen on this was good but I'm not well up on these things. Anything better around £350-400?

    Thanks op. I know there are negatives with this laptop from what others have said but this is the best value laptop I've personally seen recently so gone for one. Any idea who Lenovo uses for delivery and how long they usually take to deliver.
    Avatar
    They use DPD and usually 2 to 3 days delivery depending where shipped from (I have occasionally had some next day though)

    Can anyone tell me about this? I need a laptop for my plumbing buisnness which is pretty admin heavy due to alot of subcontracting work, i want something that is not going to feel is lacking (slow, rubbish battery ect). Seems a large discount. Also would I get the odd rts gaming out of it when I've got a spare hour

    Avatar
    I think I would go for a larger screen, eg 15.6 inch. With Admin work, extra screen space can make life much easier (edited)

    Solid specs to price ratio.
    Have some heat OP!

    Amazing processor and great spec but will be bottle necked by 8 ram that doesn’t look upgradable, this should be criminal as this whole laptop will be made redundant much faster than if you have upgraded ram to 16 or 32
    Avatar
    11th gen Intel is anything but amazing. Any pressure on cpu and most laptops throttle due to heat.
  12. Avatar
    Just ordered none, 8gb RAM is pants.

    Soldered ram again! Will they ever learn?!!
    Avatar
    They learned a long time ago.....make them non upgradeable and you need to buy a new one!
    Computers just don't need replacing every 2 years like they did 15+ years ago.... (edited)

    Quidco has tracked at £26.25, plus the £50 bonus hopefully!
    Avatar
    I'm new to Quidco how long would it take to show up on Quidco after ordering?

    Great spec for the price.

    better deals to come end of the year, early next year.

    Just ordered 3, try to get an i7 11th GEN laptop for under £500, there is a mix up on the website where it says the processor is a 10th gen, taken lots of pics when i phone them tomorrow, these are super fast, i work in IT (edited)

    Just ordered 2 (not for ebay), cheers OP 🏾

    I would agree with others here, for any heavy using 8gb is simply not enough these days. I've got this processor with 20gb of ram and it still struggles with more complex projects on Ableton. Definitely not suitable for gaming or graphics work.

    However, it is very cheap for this so if you are planning to use it as a student or for something similar, its a good option in my view.

    I normally use Linux distro. Ram usage is miles lover than what you need for windows.

    This looks like insanely good value!

    Is there a touchscreen model with similar specs? Used to touchscreen devices now, non touch seems a step backwards.
  22. Avatar
    you can still get that Ryzen 3 5300u deal which is just as fast as this.......ok that one has only 4gb ram (upgradable) but it's only £250 before cashback.....so this doesn't get me excited

    versus.com/en/…5g7

    Hardly a comparison between the two especially when this laptop comes with double as a minimum in storage and RAM. The added perk of potential big cashback and no need to fork out to buy some more parts to upgrade the machine which according to my calculations takes the Ryzen laptop up to near enough £350 using very basic model upgrade parts.

    Upgrade parts:

    RAM let's say an additional 8GB cheapest I found was approx £21

    Upgrade the 2.5" SATA SSD cheapest I founded is the integral 480GB which works out around £26.99

    WiFi 6 card works out around £10-£15

    Sata cable around £8-£10

    Screws £1

    Minimum extra cost of £66 with potential extra cost of £73 having kept to these exact specs of parts plus the cost if buying the laptop at £249.99 = £316.98 or £323.98

    Or have I made a bad mistake and bought the wrong one??

    £50 Bonus on £300 ex vat so may have to add something of a value of around £15 to the basket, I'm not sure.
    Avatar
    Where does it say the 300 spend is ex vat?
    Terms say cashback % may not include vat (these are generic Quidco terms tbh)

    Just bought.Seams like a good laptop for web browsing, Netflix and storing photos with the big storage. And should get a few years updates out of it. “I’m no expert tho” lol 
    Avatar
    Definitely. More like 5+ years for updates.

    With cashback and Quidco bonus final price should be around £276

    writing this on an I7 10th gen, Super Super Fast, going to sell 2 of them to one of my customers, grab a bargain (edited)

    Sold out 😔

    The only downside looks like RAM and lack of upgradability.

    Mu usage isn't as heavy as gaming but not light either. I'll usually have following applications running in parallell:
    Outlook
    At least 2 Chrome with multiple tabs
    Google drive
    Adobe
    Word
    Excel
    Amazon Workspace (Remote Desktop application)
    Slack ( collaboration tool)
    Zoom

    Can somebody please point out if this laptop can work smoothly considering my above usage?

    Thanks.
    Avatar
    The ram is the only thing that has stopped me buying this. Given your usage I think the laptop would soon struggle. Windows easily chews up 4gb, chrome often gets around the 1gb mark so although this laptop would be ok, I think you’d be limited on what you can run simultaneously. The fact you can’t add more is a big negative for me.

    Not bad but I'm thinking 12th gen Intel cpus will be a lot better. The big.little cpu architecture makes a decent difference.

    I only got £13.12 cashback on quidco even though it says 7% the only ones available were 3.5 %

    Looks a good deal. I got the i5 version of this a couple of years ago and suffer from battery drain after shut down not sure how this happens or if there's a solution

    Is this an aluminium body rather than plastic?
    Avatar
    I wouldn't have thought so. The ideapads usually have a metal lid and plastic bottom/chassis. (edited)

    @Gadget-Monkey I looked closer at that versus comparison......a french guy says the i7 'heats up enormously'
    I know I've been a Ryzen fanboi for years but that Intel has heat issues ie quick google (up yours intel )
