As it's vat back it works out nearer 16.5% of the purchase price, rather than 20%.

you may have a point

This Cashback Promotion offers a cashback amount equal to the VAT on the purchase price paid for Lenovo products included on the Website ("Qualifying Products") bought during a specific period of time (“Promotional Period”) which is described as equivalent to a VAT cashback. Participation in this Promotion and receipt of cashback does not affect the participant’s liability to pay VAT to HMRC or relevant tax authorities. Participant is fully liable to report and pay VAT due to HMRC and other relevant authorities.

In the UK the VAT rate is 20% and is calculated by dividing the purchase price paid by 6.
As an example, if purchasing a qualifying product for £1,000, you would be entitled to claim a cashback of £167.67


works out 16.767%

any chance of sending it back and getting your money back?

I just found out about this deal last night..well timed as I am looking for a new desktop to replace my dell. I have been looking at dell outlet for few days but nothing descent. I found these two lenovos which look to have attractive price (after cashback) and will appreciate people's comments on which one is better (ignoring the small price difference:

JL has an SSHD which gives you closer to SSD speeds. Ram can be added later and so can a SSD or larger magnetic drive. But for £730-50 (£625 ish), you have to option to build your own. EU gives us a 2 year warranty but im wondering if JL one also has accidental breakage.

Amazon link to all eligible products:

amazon.co.uk/gp/…RCE

Cheapest laptop is £529.99 which will give £88.33 cashback bring the price to £441.66

According to this
lenovo-offers.com/pag…ing

the qualifying products is larger that the list Amazon have compiled - hence my comment regarding the Miix tablets (no Special Conditions).

Y50 should be included so it might be a nice chance to get a half-decent laptop with Nvidia's Maxwell 860M for those who want a gaming laptop without spending a fortune.

Is it possible to get the cashback if I order off the lenovo website. If so, I will be able to get the 10% student discount and this. Which will be an excellent saving.

I'm wondering if this can be combined with Curry's £50 offer?

currys.co.uk/gbu…tml

Use the £50 off from o2 to bring it down to £549, and then get the VAT off.

Hmmm, Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro or Microsoft Surface Pro 3?

Hmmm, Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro or Microsoft Surface Pro 3?

Here's a article that may help

Price paid must be £500 or higher (for Desktop/Notebook)

Well that was short lived. Not applicable to me and many others unfortunately.

what a con !!!
Example the core i7 Z50-70 is £570 and the core i5 is £530 on Lenovo's own website where as they are £599 & £549 on all the qualifying retailers. Talk about putting the prices up before running a promotion.

Oh by the way, the Lenovo website does not qualify for the VAT cash back

Lenovo.com is included in the list of qualifying retailers, so why do you say that?

I assume you can make more than one cashback claim per household? Can anyone confirm?

I was seriously contemplating getting a lenovo with cashback but couldnt find one that had ssd / 1080p screen and budger was £500 after discounts.

Ended up getting everything i wanted and more with a custom built Clevo laptop via PCSpecialist

Here is the http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/2034607

Till then, i will keep on using my Lenovo SL510 (which is built like a tank!).

was contemplating it but the Intel® Core™i5 Dual Core Mobile Processor i5-4210M (2.60GHz) 3MB really was a stick in the mud. Quad core minimum for my clients (i.e freinds and family). you can always stick an SSD in later they're going for under £100 for 246GB

You do realise you can choose the CPU as you choose the components yourself. You can pick and mix..... I didn't need quad core but if I did upgrade to the i7 4712MQ would have cost an extra £98. i3 was too slow and i7 was OTT for my needs, so the i5 4210M seemed like the sweet spot. Would appreciate if you can have a look at the CPUs and tell me which one i should go for?

the i7 is the only quad listed and would outstrip your budget. I only say go for quads as applications will be moving to multicore processing in the near future. also allows you to have more tasks open to take advantage of the extra oomph. If you're happy with it wish you all the best. Just my guys have different needs so i had to be very strict with the specs for them.

Fully agree with you. If it was my work laptop I would go quad core. However for browsing and playing some light games, it is good for me. Which Lenovo model is interesting you? Which would you recommend to your clients?

still on the hunt for them seemingly not many true quads on offer. Ive put across some duals but they likely they wont be happy with that. Reality is if you want the top end expect the premiums attached.
