Found 24th Dec 2013
This is in the john lewis sale with 2 years warranty. It has one of the latest i7 cpus, usb3 as well as a hybrid sshd.
Seems like a great price for the spec.

Cold cos it's not a Thinkpad.

Shame it doesnt have a dedicated graphics card - otherwise, nod bad.

Thinkpads are £1000+, I know, I had many Thinkpads at work. This is £500 so we know it is not a Thinkpad.

They are not all £1000. Take this for example- outlet.lenovo.com/SEU…2M5

Mine didn't cost a thousand quid it actually cost the same as the one in this deal, and at the time of purchase, it was pretty much fully loaded...

Thanks for posting that... I'm actually thinking about buying

A ThinkPad that doesn't cost a bomb may not be so hot you guys .

even though the processor is fast... a computer without Full HD, 1080p just doesn't cut it in my eyes anymore, speed yes its important, but viewing pleasure is number one. For any reasonable game a dedicated card is needed. Windows 8.1 a touchscreen is a must... nice drive its all about the performance.

I would say a work from home PC... great... for pleasure... keep looking.

thinkpad here for you guys!

Shared graphics, so don't buy this if you want it for gaming.

The latest Intel HD graphics are actually quite decent, moreover the power consumption is reasonable too.
Ok, so you really need NVidia discrete GPU if you want to play games.

The thing that really kills this deal for me is lack of 1080p or more.

Is there a similar priced laptop with 1080p screen. Not fussed over playing games as its for a school student

Same price on Amazon if preferred.

Speculatrix - where can you get a similarly priced and specced laptop with 1080p please?

The Ultranote II on PCSpecialist specced outsimilarly (but with 1080p) is actually cheaper.

why are people so obsessed with having a 1080p screen on a laptop or am I missing something? Surely HD stuff on a laptop screen is never going to look as good as using a HDMI port on a decent tv?

Tried halving your current PC/laptop resolution. That is the main reason for most of us that don't buy low resolution laptops.

Watching movies etc it helps. But mainly it is for improving the interface by being able to see more.

It's not... have just specced it similarly and it comes out at over £600....

Why would I buy a laptop with a display advertised as having glare issues... matte screens all the way.
I would say i7 is an overkill, totally unnecessary, an i5 and a higher res screen (what about 1600x900?) would make this a better buy.

I really like the spec on this and I don't mind not having a dedicated graphic card as I mainly use the laptop to browse internet and never play games.
But how is this Lenovo brand like?
Anyone has got one of the Lenovo laptops?
Are they good?

Very good spec for the price ... quad core processor ..4th gen i7 ....

same price on amazon..

Heat from me, great deal for 4th gen i7 processor with decent all round specs

Imo, Lenovo are the best laptop brand out there, offering superior build quality and high specs at an affordable price.

Was considering this, but really wanted a touch screen.

Went for this in the end:

amazon.co.uk/Len…top

3rd generation i7 but with the extra £50 I can upgrade the RAM. This is also about 2/3rds the height.

I am looking for something like this. The reviews do not seem to be that good though!

What RAM would be needed to upgrade this to 8 or 16 GB ?

You can only have up to 8GB on this so one stick of 8GB.

same price on amazon? link?

I have a Lenovo G770. Cost me £730 from amazon in May 2012.

Lenovo said that it can only have a max of 8GB RAM too... but i found a poster that put in a matched pair so i followed suit and it worked fine with 16GB RAM now. Upgraded to Windows 8 as well as a 1TB/ (32GB SSD) Hybrid drive. Boots in 12 seconds. That upgrade cost me £100 all in. I'm now whipping out the DVD drive - putting in a 480SSD for extra storage and either buying a external DVD or using an eSata drive to link to the old DVD when i need it. I'm a Microsoft developer so need it those features but if you want to watch movies on it that might suit you. (i use my ipad). The laptop is a flying machine. That upgrade takes me to £1k.

Still available if you ring up any store (free delivery). I picked up mine yesterday - can't find a better deal anywhere - and I've looked v hard. I like the minimal look and feel of it.
