Nice, just to note it’s the last gen (3rd) Ryzen so whilst still powerful this will be roundly beaten by the far superior 4th gen range

Surely if Lenovo wanted to sell a no brainer they would have made this & just added another 8GB RAM?

Hot in any case.
13.3 too small in my opinion, doesn't give you a much feel for a Laptop

If you use the student discount and the code "LENOVOSAVE". The base model goes down to £519.99. And, this model becomes £599.

For this reason it’s not a deal imo, even the Ryzen 3 4000-series will likely give this a run for its money (same core configuration and higher IPC). I’m a bit surprised AMD haven’t restricted supply so retailers can ditch the 3000-series stock.

How much should I expect to pay for a similar laptop with the 4th gen?
Anybody any experience on this screen as it's quite rare to see a qhd resolution? Is it overkill for a laptop or does it give a good benefit over 1080?

This sort of price - have a look through deals with Ryzen in them using the search!

Indeed... there was a recent thread where someone trashed a Ryzen 3 4xxx deal as being “only good for browsing with one tab open” or some trash like that... I had a look at benchmarks and the Ryzen 3 4xxxU actually matches the 8th gen (so only 2 years ago) i7 U yes i SEVEN.

Deffo would take a 4th gen over a 3rd gen now especially with prices about the same.

4000-series with Zen 2, increased core count, IPC and smaller lithography is huge. I wouldn’t touch an older one like this unless it was particularly cheap or good value and it’s not.

LOL, well in April, a great many of us got the ideapad 5 15, the latest 4800u, with 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD. And most of us only ended up paying a bit over £500 by the time we got student discounts, discounts for delays and were also able to order it without windows, taking almist £100 off the build price

To be fair, it wasn't a QHD display though, just 1080p.

Exactly.

Even the previous gen Ryzen, like 3550H, have the same single core performance as Intel i7 desktop chips from a few years ago, and multi core performance only 10/15% less.

The one tab thing is nonsense. Besides number of tabs is actualy more related to RAM.

TL:DR most people need far less computing power then they think they do.

This won't work with the deal
For that money why can't they at least provide a 15.6 " display.

Clearly from a non-gamer
I have not seen a decent laptop deal on here in ages maybe change the name to averageukdeals ?

£630 for a last gen CPU... Ouch.
I'm loving my AMD 13 inch Huawei matebook still. And I'd prefer it by a mile over this. Look beyond marketing and the media and you'll find any laptop will probably do the trick
Need some advice. I'm looking for a mid range laptop but it has to have a nice screen. Ips, at least 1080p. Bright nits. It seems the only way to get good screen is to buy a high range laptop which I don't need?

I didn't order such a high end laptop but went for the 3500U model with 8GB, 1080p TN display and 256GB SSD but it only worked out at £235 in the end and installed windows 10 using a script. It's working brilliantly and a huge upgrade in speed. I know many people don't like TN panels but the response time is great which is ideal for action games. Very happy with it. Video editing is snappy on it and the 3500U actually has as slightly more powerful GPU than the model that replaces it even if it does have weaker CPU performance. Some games rely more on the GPU than CPU. My last 3 laptops have been AMD although this is the first with a Ryzen processor. Not keen on intel chips on lower end laptops because their own GPU's suck for both compatibility and performance. Anyway definitely recommend Ryzen for an all round great laptop experience. My laptop is close to emulating wii u games at full speed not something I realised it would be capable of doing when I bought it. Just make sure whatever laptop you buy with a Ryzen chipset has dual channel memory if you want to play games on the built in GPU.
