Great laptop rated hot!

looks ace but the integrated graphics are a bit of a let down.
still hot though

Good price - voted hot

2-3 hours battery life sucks as well, so tempting though

Decent price, hot.

Although the current model from Lenovo has a few upgrades on this for £668

- Intel Core i5-450M
- Mobile Intel 5 Series Discrete GFX Chipset with 512MB ATI Radeon Mobility HD 5145 Graphics
- 6 cell 2.2Ah Li-Ion Battery (assuming the model listed has the 4cell)
- only 3GB Ram though

Not sure if the newer i5-450M and graphics card are worth the extra £118 though

Shiiiiiiit battery!

i don't get it, why ppl want 15inch laptop with huge 9cell or 6cell battery.

if you want mobile laptop, get 13" or less.

eezray

I've got a 'laptop' with a 17" coz I sometimes work at home and sometimes at the office and sometimes have to take it to clients and in the evening we watch iplayer on it in the lounge. Is that good enough reason?

What I don't understand is people who moan about battery life. I've never been away from a mains socket for more than 3 hours. If i were to be I'd take my netbook which gives me 10 hrs.

Good price but not to sure on the brand.

Graphics are poor tbh -

There's a laptop reliability chart here for various brands that may help you.

I know that Lenovo are quite good, but to prove a point, that link doesn't really say much about the brand.

Which shows that Lenovo are worse than Dell who are also cheaper? Just go to Dell Outlet, far cheaper than this machine. According to the chart better quality too.

Unimpressed. Price seems "about right" to me. Far from a hot deal by anyone's imagination. Lenovo are also blah. I mean they're no HP or Gateway, but they aren't exactly winning me over either.

For this price I'd want Dedicated graphics.

Uhh Lenovo have quite a reputation for build quality. Their laptops are generally targetted at the business market, and are therefore built very solidly and designed to last.

There's nothing wrong with HP laptops.

Apart from being built like they came out of a Christmas cracker, they constantly come near the bottom of customer satisfaction and reliability surveys. Apart from that, you're 100% correct.

Afraid we're going to have to agree to disagree. They cost more than the Acers or Dells, are worse built, and the support is terrible.

It shows their malfunction rates compared with other brands over the first two to three years after purchase, very important information in my opinion as I like to make expensive things last. If you're after other information about the brand then you may find what you're looking for here.

How were you proving a point and what was said point anyways?

Bought Dell's top of the range 15" Studio laptop wth a better spec than this from their outlet for £450 on Friday. Included a i5 processor and exactly the same spec but with a 512mb graphics card. Plus it looks better than this one.

Do we have another Loughborough guy?
Surely not!?
Can lightning really strike twice!?

Lenovo. The company that bought out IBM's PC division. Used IBM Laptops for years and now Lenovo boxes are no better/worse. Big brand but primarily the business sector (as befits the old IBM heritage).
I'd have no problem buying one and rate the brand up there with Dell/HP(Compaq) etc.
V Good price H&R

For this price you're getting an i5 4Gb & 320Gb. Can't have everything

You're also getting Windows 7 professional and not home premium (Again, because it's directed towards a business user rather than a home user/gamer).

Got a Link?

this one is not too bad either, and extra 70 quid for the dedicated graphics card, and 500GB HDD

Just noticed if you want to go to lenova's shop directly - u *could*1 get 15% off, 10% with 5DAYSDEALSSEPT and 5% quidco. I just bought one of the site using that code. IT was about 750 quid - 10% discount, and hopefully the 5% will track

it's now 499 with cashback

When looking for better graphics in a laptop, check the resolution of the SCREEN as well. Many laptops these days (sub £500) sacrifice vertical screen resolution (1366x768 which used to be 1200x800) to give widescreen capability. The x768 can be really limiting even though the graphics card can display way higher. You'll end up having to plug in an external monitor.
