Not a bad laptop. The only off putting thing for me is now HDMI, but not everyone needs it!

not bad at all..

Or spend £600 for this Dell & get a slightly better CPU, much much better GPU, bigger higher res. screen, and a useful warranty.

Definitely hot.

Doesn't seem a particularly special price to me?You can get a 15" Win7 … Doesn't seem a particularly special price to me?You can get a 15" Win7 i5-430M for as little as £429.99 from Dixons. (even less if you get the 3% quidco)Granted it's an Advent, and has 1GB less... but it's £70 cheaper!

1. I personally would pay 70 pounds more for the extra ram and the brand, i have more faith in lenovo than advent, and considering the advent is the only i5 you can quote (if you anymore please share) it is quite special?

2. £100 for a brand that is on par if not worse than lenovo, just to get the extra gpu (cpu speed is only incremental, and 17 inch screen is more of a hinderence to me personally), is not worth it all all. that is alot of money for not alot of stuff.

please reply, as i trulely would appreciate it if you could show me any other laptops of this spec, 15 inch i5 3-4gb ram 250gb+ hd, around the same price and brand quality, as i am thinking of buying this myself.

after saying all that, im personally holding out for an i5 with a ded gpu at this price.... entertainment rather than business use.

This is getting warmer but stock levels are staying the same... Is there a similar/better machine out there for less money? Also, does anyone know if this is a CCFL or LED screen? And how many cells are in the battery? I tried calling to get more info but got a sales zombie who just quoted the web page back at me.

from lenovo website, Thin and light with a 13.3", 14" or 15.6" LED backlit widescreen and long battery life. go for it if dedicated graphics aren't essential for you. if you don't know what dedicated graphics are, it means you dont need them
if i don't find one soon it looks like the lenonvo it is!

When I click go to deal it says sorry this product is no longer available?

seems very good for the price. Voted hot

I have been using Thinkpads (both IBM and Lenovo) for several years now both at home and (until recently) at work too.
I also have mates / colleagues who use Dell / Advent laptops at home and as far as I am concerned the Lenovo Thinkpads have been so much more reliable than the Dell / Advent laptops.
I have only ever bought a new personal Thinkpad once - the others have always been refurbs / 2nd hand of Ebay. My Thinkpads have always been more reliable than any other laptop that mates / colleagues have bought from new.
In fact I have always managed to resell my Thinkpads back on Ebay after 18months to 2 years usage and still get a reasonable price back for them. I dont think my mates Dells / Advents would have been worth any where near as much after the same period of time.

At work as well until recently we always used thinkpads - some of the old T41's are still going strong after 3-4 years. We recently switched to Dells (management decision) and they have proved to be considerably more unreliable.

and its not just reliability - things like the Lenovo Thinkvantage tools make updating / reinstalling drivers or upgrading OS so much simpler on Thinkpads than Dells.
