This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This deal is for the new second gen ThinkPad E15 which is hard to find at the moment. This one comes with a 4500U but they do have other variants in stock such as 14 inch and 4700U. Memory and SSD is upgradeable so easy to stick in an extra 8GB. The 8GB is soldered but is has an extra SODIMM slot for more.

  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Ryzen 5 4500U
  • 8GB DDR4 3200mhz RAM (Up to 24GB)
  • 256GB NVMe SSD
  • Wifi 6
  • USB charging with PD
  • Fingerprint reader

Think we'll see a 4700U 15 inch version soon?

The specifications tab on that website doesn't load for me so can't see if it is USB C charging or not.

Yep it charges with USB-C and has PD for charging other devices.
Hows this compare with this?

Please ignore the fact its from currys please lol
Misco? That takes me back - thought they were finished though, I'm sure I had an email years back saying they were ceasing trading. Remember sometimes being able to play them and Dabs off against either to price match, over a 56k modem or whatever it was
Seems like a great deal for me for the money as like you say it's very hard to get a laptop with one of the latest Ryzen 5 or Ryzen 7 processors at the moment. However despite adding this to my basket I think I'm going to hold out (end of September!) for the IdeaPad 5 14 that I ordered for slightly less than this with the 4700u and 16gb ram
Any ThinkPad specialistas?

Has Lenovo abandoned their proprietary OneLink+ dock connector and replaced it with a USB Type C based dock?

You had the old skool T series business laptops with the dock connector on the underside of the chassis, and more recently they introduced the OneLink, followed by the OneLink+ on their X1 range.
If you don’t mind Currys they have a similar spec ideapad for £529 (14” though and I believe half the RAM is soldered so you would lose dual channel if you upgraded it, which is not great for GPU performance). The ideapad has great reviews. It’s a TN screen, I don’t know what the thinkpad has.

Do you know what the difference is between the two? It’s unlikely that someone buying a budget laptop needs Pro.
This is out of stock at Misco now anyway but did seem a good deal and I might have gone for it if I could have upgraded the ram at a later date. One other thing I did notice on a teardown video of this laptop that it only has a single heat pipe for the CPU compared to the dual heat pipes on the IdeaPad 5 14 which might make this one throttle more and be a bottleneck even though they have the same CPU

I have also noticed some other Ryzen 5 and 7 laptops like the Acer Switch seem to throttle more than the IdeaPad 5 14 with some people on YouTube suggesting it could be due to the latency of the memory but others thinking it's thermal based throttling so something to factor in if you are wanting to maximize these CPUs
