*the X201 is a decent Ultra portable full spec laptop, and weighs 1.35kg.

Hi all, this is my first Hotuk posting.

I ordered the spec above last week for £1,098.23. Lenovo have since renewed the deal to be even better. Remember that this price includes the x200 ultrabase, free shipping, and 64bit OS (default 32bit, but its upgrade free).


If the link doesn't work, go onto the main Lenovo page, click on "products" on the top left, then "special offers"...then "laptops for work". The site is also littered with lots of other savings.


Remember that its not just the X201. The deals include the edge 15, T410 & T510. The T410 is Lenovo's version of the MBP.

If this deal doesn't get some heat I don't know what does.

The point of this website perhaps?...to inform others of savings...:?

A normal x201 of that ~spec costs 1.2k.
This deal is including the ultrabase.

Thinkpads last for years. I'm typing this on a 5 year old x41 which hasn't missed a beat. If you've owned a thinkpad you'll understand.

For this model its a good price I think.

Oh ok, Just seems so expensive for its spec :thumbsup:

hmm, as mentioned, these are the Rolls-Royce of laptops to be fair

It's debateable whether these are still 'Thinkpads' though - my company switched to Lenovo last year mainly with T400s (a thousand or so on site) and reliability has been surprisingly poor particularly with motherboard failures despite gentle use. The chassis design makes it more time consuming than it should be to access the insides of the machine for servicing or repair and the dock is simply atrocious - the X200/T400 class machines are not compatible with each other's dock and the monitor stand is a joke. Their system software is almost as bad as Sony's and the Ctrl/Fn buttons are the wrong way round although at least there's a bios switch for that now (although not for the X200 which is what I use).

It does look a good deal for the machines (I haven't voted cold) but wouldn't be my choice. Just in case anyone isn't familiar with these machines, the X201 doesn't have an onboard optical drive - the DVD-RW slots into the docking bay which the X201 sits on.
