Lenovo - Thinkpads on sale. SL510e laptop for $674.10 (save $583)

29 April 2010

Lenovo have a new eCoupon AUPLEGENDARY out at the moment that provides from 10 to 30% off SL/T/W laptops until the 10th of may.

In general the Thinkpads are not the prettiest laptops out there (your opinion may vary - actually originally based on the Japanese bento box, in case you didn't know!), but they are pretty damned rugged.

eg:
ThinkPad SL510e Series
AU$1,257.94
on sale: AU$749.00
after applying "AUPLEGENDARY" code: $674.10

Intel Celeron Dual Core T3000 processor (1.80GHz, 800MHz, 1MBL2)1

    My dad is looking for a new laptop and I stupidly said I would have a look for him. Will we get cashback if we use this code or will the one Nod posted work? ]http://www.buckscoop.com.au/forums/deals-bargains-coupon-codes-discounts-promo-codes-vouchers-cashback/23931-new-lenovo-coupon-15-30-off-thinkpads-ends-4th-may.html I was going to get him a Dell.

    Ok. I just noticed the dual core. My dad just does really basic stuff so will it really make that much difference to him? He really wanted a built in camera too I just went through the build process and grabbed a better warranty and a built in 2 MP camera and used the other code (Au think one). Your code Ninkasi the total was $747 (was $820) but with the other code $702.37 and then I get the cashback, or so the post says. I am going to go and price the Dell machine with the better warranty

    It's dual core, but Celeron..... the Dell has better specs in some areas, not as good in others. Both are entry level notebook so don't expect to be able to play graphically intensive games but should have plenty of grunt for most uses. I've had bad experiences with Dell, and IMHO feel the Lenovos are slightly more solid, but know others who love them so would not stop anyone from getting one if the price is right and in particular if the laptop is likely to be treated reasonably carefully. If your dad doesn't do much more than email/web and perhaps the odd letter or two he might be just as well off with a smaller netbook. Cheaper, battery life better, lighter and more portable.... screen smaller, though, so would also depend on how good his eyes are! Cheers.
