The L340 is the IdeaPad, I think it's just been miss posted as the ThinkPad.
This is probably a silly question but... what is the benefit of it folding flat? I literally can’t think of a reason why id need a laptop to do this?!

My mistake. Rectified
The time scales for custom builds are due to it being reliant on supplies an suppliers.

I am not in a rush, so saving such a wedge of money is very much worth it to me - if you need something ASAP, I'd order from the in stock items that have immediate dispatch or buy something else.

It's the price with both discounts. Some options are not available atm. For example you can't remove Windows and save 100 pounds. It's also impossible now to remove HDD to get bigger battery. Might be just supply issues and those will be back later. Keep in mind, delivery date is long.

What's better for playing games? The Ryzen 4800 with integrated graphics or this? They are similar prices but I'm confident they'd both do everything else I need so it's just which will be better for gaming that has the edge.

I know they'll both be massively outclassed by an actual gaming laptop but you're looking at much higher prices to get that.

The Ryzen is a more powerful processor, but integrated graphics are not for modern gaming. If your other choice doesn't have a dedicated graphics card then this Lenovo Ideapad all day long.

Call them and ask. Especially during current circumstances you may get a passcode for the rewards site.

Just to note Huawei replied very quickly, but said they don't do discount.
Blue light card doesn't work for me. Takes me to rewards page but gives me no password, how do you get the password?
This only has one memory slot, so runs in single channel. Big CPU performance penalty in gaming
From looking at the specs it seems that if you're selecting 16gb or RAM it has 8gb soldered and 8gb in DIMM slot.

My mrs has a an Ryzen 5 Asus Vivobook, it only has 1 available dimm slot but has 4gb soldered and 4gb in the dimm.

But runs dual channel.

I am getting it as a multimedia device. Only games I like on PC are the indie horrors such as Visage etc.

If gaming is the only purpose for this then I'd get an Nvidia RTX card loaded device.

But for £670 - single channel or not, this is packing a hefty punch at this price for a laptop.

I had this issue, and got around it by using a desktop PC in work, so perhaps load the website as 'desktop page' if you're on a tablet or mobile.

Thanks, but I ordered laptop with 4800u for studio (production/mixing/mastering), which requires raw CPU power. Intel can't match its performance in that form factor and price range. And I still can play eSports titles on low/mid settings as 4800u has most powerful iGPU on the market.
