Any reasonable priced laptop with 4500U and IPS screen? Looking at Ideapad 5 but its not avalible yet


The HP is much higher end device in terms of display and build quality. The specs are almost identical the big difference being in how the 8gb of ram is configured. Also you get the 360 hinge which is important to some. Differences in battery and physical dimensions too worth considering.


This is rip off Britain. I doubt that prices will plunge that much. But I would love to see a 3500U 8GB RAM laptop deal...


It is but someone was asking if it can be increased


but 4gb is soldered. Solder 8gb or solder none.

BIG fan of s/h Lenovo Thinkpads. I've had 3 x220s variously maltreated by kiddies, This one is built to last. I'm after another - it's this deal vs. 5 year old x260 or similar. Think I'd rather go s/h.


Hard disagree, thinkpads, x and t series particularly are wonderful second hand machines, many have spent their life never outside an office, and they are the easiest machines in the world to swap out parts for. Not sure why not, until they get to high school, all they need is a browser. Both my kids grew up using Linux, using Linux on thinkpads, as it happens. One is now at high school and has had to start using windows, but recently requested a dual boot so he can use Linux again. Linux for kids is great tbh, adults may struggle with it, if all they have used is windows, but if it's what you start using, it's what you know. I'd recommend it for kids, certainly over windows


Always a dice roll buying a used laptop, especially a Thinkpad which tend to have had a hard life. If you can find one in great condition then wonderful, but it's still had someone's dickbeaters all over it... (highfive) Linux for Little Johnny and Ethel? Yeah, no.

I have a Unidays account, but I can't create an account for the Lenovo website with the same email. Any idea how or what I am doing wrong?


gotcha, yeah userbench has recently become quite a bias and hostile site, quite a shame as it once was a great starting point for getting a general idea of what performance you should expect. Zen and its successors have been the greatest development computing this decade. the 4000 series mobile chips are something else.


No it was to you, sorry I didn’t understand your comment though, I thought you were agreeing that the specs were poor rather than that benchmarking site

I ordered this and arrived by UPS on the following day - very happy with it. Was rather surprised by how fast it was delivered.


Just a point of caution I ordered a while back and the dates have changed regularly for delivery ranging from 20th July to Monday of this week. Its now somewhere between shanghai and my house but ups have stopped tracking it and I have no confirmed date


It depends how much value you put on those extras.


Point I was making is that OP said this was slightly more expensive than the honor / huawei options. Watch value included this is £200 odd more than those.

Just received my 4,400 “WOW Points”, basically £44 cash back. Nice!


When you say average specs, and price should be around 300, can u give example of decent specs for around 350-400?. I need laptop for my son (11). I was bit before buying a "cheap" Acer laptop - but soon slow. Literally 5 second delay on every keypress (and that was brand new). Any suggestions? Or at least minimum spec/processor. I have minimal tech knowledge. He not heavy user, not a gamer- but want it decent enough in case he wants to mess around with photo editor now and again. But will be mainly Word, email, YouTube etc. Thanks


I am not getting with this prise when I customise as stated above ... Any advice


This is the kind of scenario I envisaged. Sorry to hear about the aggravation you've had with them (not in the least bit surprised) but at least you'll never make that mistake again. ;)


That's nothing. It took me 2 months to get them to collect my laptop to repair a dodgy battery runtime (4hrs instead of 11). 2 weeks arguing with support that I should be getting close to 11 hours light use, where as they were arguing the advertised 11 hours is only for when it is "shutdown". Yeap, that stupid. Even had an engineer "confirm" this. Then about 6 weeks of trying to get it collected, only the 3rd arranged collection was successful. My emails were totally ignored for weeks. Easily 10+ emails ignored. Ignored on forums, Facebook, and WhatsApp too. Telephone is the only way of getting any response, but means waiting on hold for 30+mins during working hours. Their support forums are a joke, the admins are just Lenovo apologists doing mental gymnastics to excuse their appalling behavior and offer no help at all (ignoring private messages). Currently waiting on parts for the repair. I predict it will be around the 3 month mark by the time my issue is finally resolved. Seems like Lenovo are cheap due to slashing support costs..

Got a replacement as the first one was damaged. Replacement also showing signs of minor comestic damage. Asked for another replacement but now out of stock. Restoring to see if they will take any money off this one I have otherwise will have to go back. Has anyone else who ordered had the same issue?


anyone who received theirs can comment on how quite/load fan gets? I received mine and it looks like fan makes loudish noise most of the time, I have 6 years old Asus laptop and i never hear fan going on that one, but this Lenovo from start up its just makes noise then it goes quite and then it starts again even when i have multiple pages open not lick im pushing it to the limit or anything. Just wonder if thats normal. Thanks


Gone UP in price to £539!!!?


Thanks for taking the time. I'll go ahead and purchase as I'm not a gamer at all :)


That's pretty decent for the price (other than it not having 16gb ram) but if you can wait for buying a laptop the next generation of ryzen 5 CPUs have come out but the laptops aren't really out. If you plan on doing any intense work on it (gaming, video editing, rendering) then you'll see a huge boost in performance from the new laptop. If it's just for everyday use this above linked laptop will be fine for it.

Looks like a variation of but larger screen & different CPU. But the guy's a buffoon. I've been running Windows 10 on 4GB on at least 4 different machines ever since it was released without issue. Of course more is better but to claim it's essential, especially at this level is just daft. As for his radical discovery that a sub £200 ($200) laptop is no good for gaming or video editing, who'd have thought? It's like buying a small city car & slating it for not being able to hit 150MPH on the autobahn...


If it's the same machine then this guy says it good for a basic Linux notebook - but probably not for anything else: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HK8hSW8tcJo


At any given point in time there will always be new processors arriving "soon". Just buy something that suits your needs. At that price point warranty will typically be 12 months unless you pay to extend it or maybe buy from John Lewis, who tend to give another year free.


i have a budget of £300 to £350 max.I keep seeing comments that laptops with better processors will start being sold soon.does anybody know roughly how soon as I would like to get something in the next month if possible.with my budget will this be achievable for a laptop with ssd,8g ram and say min 125th storage. would like something brand new .also what sort of warranty can you typically expect to get? thanks


That's a terrible analogy. I can tell you're a CrApple user through and through. (lol)

Crap battery


Just paid £346 direct from lenovo for the amd ryzen 3 version


I'd get minimum 8gb ram 256GB hard drive. 128gb hard drive is too low once Windows and updates are installed. You'll probably be left with no more 95gb there after.

Not a great deal this, at all. You can get a full HD S340 on ebay (14" though) for £300. They were available for £260 four months ago. Slap another 8GB in one of these (there's a slot free) and you're golden. Seem decent quality. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/113989656569


You are correct on that. I bought this back in January 2020 it was on eBay Argos sold refurbished but was just customer returns so basically new. Ryzen 5 3500u. At the time I knew I bagged myself a bargain but sadly 4 months later it developed trackpad problems due to windows update crashing so gave it to Argos tech repair they repaired it but then problem came back. Have now got it refunded and bought two Lenovo ideapads linked on this site one being Intel mx350 and one ryzen 4700u. Here is proof of my purchase I was very happy with it. But sadly was a TN screen.


That kind of spec appears to be nearer £500 right now, so if you have a link do share.

The actual little plug gets warm? The charger brick gets warm (that's normal) and the bottom of the laptop gets warm (where the battery is, that's normal). I haven't noticed the actual little plug getting warm. It is incredibly difficult for my 9yr old to unplug, which is such a silly design flaw. My box came with a Lenovo sticker sealing it, and I haven't noticed any faults on the laptop itself.


Yeah that's it. I found the same and a bit odd. Did you notice how warm it gets when its plugged in? Going to have to v carefully when removing in/out of the actual laptop to avoid bending the element. I found a hairline crack in mine upon opening the box. Did you notice that your packaging had been re sealed? I found that 2 large stickers had been removed from the surface of the box.


You mean the power adapter? It’s a big one that plugs in directly, a bit unwieldy. The plug that goes into the laptop is horribly tight, it’s really weird.


Nice one. Can I ask what type of adaptor you got? Was it a large rectangle shape, roughly 8 cms by 6cms.


Installed CloudReady (basically turns it into a ChromeBook), and everything works 100% perfectly. The trackpad is *amazing*, silky smooth, two finger scrolling works very smoothly. The 1080p is really nice, gorgeous resolution. Boots up really quickly, and is blindingly fast once logged in. It is a perfect ChromeBook for £349. Unbeatable.

CPU wise maybe i5 is faster but if i recall correctly, Ryzen 7 3700u has Vega 10, which is comparable to MX250. So it is a trade-off whether you prefer better CPU or iGPU.


I was wondering about that - most of the benchmarks put the i5 ahead of the Ryzen 7 3700u, around 20% faster (there are a few specific multi-core tasks where the Ryzen will come out on top), but the trade-off is the fact that you get an SSD that's half the size. I guess it comes down to whatever you're going to use it for. Okay, might just keep looking.


Is it really that difficult to turn S mode off? I thought it could be done in about a minute. Not exactly the biggest hardship.


Good call Lazy. Would be horrible to get this home and then realise you need to faff around removing W10 S*** edition.


I agree but it's just an FYI in case anyone bought it without knowing ;)

As long as the unit is less than 14 days old, or from when you raised the complaint, then all you should need to do is tell the customer sevice person you speak to that you want to return the laptop and they do the rest. Winthin a few days you would be e-mailed the necessary documentaion that you have to print out including the return address and decide which day you want it collected from your home address.


Yeah I know, I'm trying for a full refund currently being messed around thou in a loop with different people from customer services. Asked 3 times for the RMA so far being told they will get back to me. I'm contacting my credit card company tomorrow too. Yeah I ordered the gaming version. They are stating that as it was customised, I added the free ram upgrade, better screen and additional hard drive that it becomes custom and therefore doesn't have the leds. To me that's rubbish.


You can just simply return it within 14 days if you are not happy with it at no cost to you. They will arrange collection and then fully refund once it has been received. It will normally be returned to the Netherlands, so nornally you would get your money back in a week or so. The gamming version, assuming that is what you orderd, would normally come with the backlit keyboard. Do you not have a copy of what you ordered which would have been e-mailed on completion of the order. It would normally state if the keyboard was backlit. In my own case I am still waiting to see what they are offering to do, but will most likely return it for a refund.


How are you getting on, I hope better than me. Its appalling service being lied to time and time again and still being told the keyboard was optional apart from the fact I ordered every upgrade I could and the led keyboard should be as standard. Going to get hold of my credit card company seems my only choice now. Or have to live without the keyboard that all over the Web site makes the gaming series. Gutted tbh


Your right. And customer services have confirmed the same on Facebook as no reply thus far on email. See what options they give me saying will get back to me in 48hours as they look into. Its a little thing the back lighting but was disappointed as they look smart. That's shocking what you have had. The build date on this one is the 4th of May so did well to receive so soon. But perhaps they have ran out of stock of the lighting keyboards and scrapping together the components. I've noticed the 15inch has gone off sale today. For interest this is it. Defo ordered the gaming L340

Let's face it Intel is just low end garbage for laptops. I wouldn't even consider this for any price. The performance is from 10 years ago.


The Lenovo deals are decent and all but after they pushed my delivery date back to 5 weeks time. I cancelled and bought a gaming laptop from Hughes.


Thank you for your response I might just give it a try do you know which membership is better besides? Obviously won’t qualify for the trade one but I work in one of the professions mentioned on the individual one is it any different to just paying £15 & buying online


Got my Costco membership around 6 months ago and I have to say it is an amazing trade-off for the value you get. They sell everything in big packs which makes it cheaper at the end of the day but more important high end quality big packs! Its very much inspired by the american supermarkets where you end up spending the day looking around for things you dont normally get in the regular supermarkets for a decent good deal...not to mention their exclusive and until the stock ends deals which are very tempting to throw some bucks to get. Only con I can see is that when you ready to check out do sum it up as the total can get quite high due to the "big packs" when compared to your regular daily shopping (which is only natural when you are getting an entire box of wine).


Sorry in advance if this is the wrong place to ask I just wanted to know whether people thought it was worth buying the Costco Individual membership Are there any bargains to be had & do we actually save money to shop there? Thank you x

It's unavailable, has the same GPU, half the RAM and half the SSD storage. Agreed it is a better CPU, but this is a swings and roundabouts discussion. Both good, but will outshine each other at different tasks.




Post something as an alternative in the price range that is better maybe? All opinions welcome, but at least add something.


Rediculous though they lost alot of money and custom doing this


I ordered 1 on the 27th April, expected delivery date was 24th June, it arrived today on the 12th May. I think they are just being super conservative on the expected delivery date in case of Covid caused delays. Just over 2 weeks isn't that bad. You can actually get a more accurate delivery date by using the tracking number.

Another option to bring down the price further is to remove Windows as an OS and opt for Free Dos which’ll bank £90. But then u will need to download and install Windows yourself if you know how to do it. Please also note the long shipping period (5-6wks). Hope this helps.

I'm looking to replace an almost 7yr old laptop (with SSD added 2yrs ago - which made a massive difference). Assuming it continues to work I'm going to wait a few months as appreciate it's a seller's market at the moment. It is used for basic tasks (web and my wife's work - i.e MS Office) but I'd like to get something that is somewhat future proof so it (hopefully) lasts 5yrs+. It doesn't need to be very portable so not fussed about screen size or weight. In terms of specs and with future-proofing in mind (durability and specs) what do people think would be a good bet? I'm thinking an SSD is a must (prob go for 256GB but have only used about 70-odd of current one), min 8GB and probably a Ryzen 5 3000 series chip? Is that processor overkill? I'm hoping to spend around 400 once the market is kinder but would be willing to pay more if a particular brand/model is recommended for longevity/durability (ie those aimed at the business sector maybe?). I'd be very grateful for any views.


The HP really is a budget offering. Case is sprayed silver plastic, wears in minutes in your bag. Screen is awful. 1080p or not. And whatever way they have the markings on the keyboard, it's impossible to see the decals? And the sound, considering it is a 'plus point', useless, even by laptop standards...


Thanks. I can understand the specs of a product on a product page, and do some googling to get an idea of performance if I don't know to then make suggestions, but of course real world usage can tell a different story. So yeah might be best getting the Lenovo.
