Guys please don't curse me as this is from a US site.

My misses is going to USA and I was wondering on what your views are on this deal, I know it will have a US keyboard, and i think the warranty is international.

I have selected the base model and added bluetooth, finger print reader and webcam.

there is a code for further 10% off using "LOGICBUY10" where I saw this deal.

Anythoughts would be most welcom the deal expires tomorrow.

I am using 1.6 as the FX rate

Intel Core i5-2520M Processor (2.5GHz, 3MB L3, 1333MHz DDR3)

Can't comment on the deal itself but remember to factor in the import duty payable on return to the UK.

Thanks for that I am hoping she can just bring it back without box in an old laptop case.

Probably but it's not a thinkpad...

I have owned several Thinkpad's both at work and at home - all were extremely reliable.
I currently have a 2yr old T400 which I am very happy with. My wife still uses a 5yr old T42 - perfect for surfing the web.
I had a quick look at the Lenovo UK website and the closest model to the T420s you mention above is over £1200 - so this sounds like an absolute bargain.
I have owned a USA purchased Thinkpad in the past - my brother in law brought one over for me many years ago and the warranty was international - but did not need to use it as it worked fine until I sold it on Ebay.
If I was in your place I would definitely go for it. Just make sure you missus dumps the box etc and packs the user manuals etc in a separate suitcase. Get her to take a used laptop case from here to transport it back in. Get me one while your at it please

Harry, at last a sensible reply. I will be getting one just need to order it today as the offer expires tomorrow, all int comming in at $1,097.10 approx £685 using 1.6 with 10% coupon.

I have a T60 which is 4 years old and still gong strong just need to replace it for development and this seems ideal, was also considering the T510 with 1920x1080 15.6" dispaly not too much diff on price but maybe a tad too big to luggage around.

£685!! You jammy sod! Nice one.
It is absolutely crazy that we have to pay the same number of £ as the $ price in the USA - Ripoff Britain!!
The one below looks similar spec to yours £1127 in the UK!!
