How long does the deal last? Nice find! So do I get $749 without the taxes added in? I'm seriously considering this! I've been looking for a $500~$750 range laptop for weeks now.biggrin.gif

its a bit extra but it looks like sale price is half off almost. Did you get free shipping on that?
P.S- is it true lenovo have whitelisted parts?

Hey man,

This one is a sweet deal. Considering getting one myself:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2008030

It's an i5-2450 with a radeon hd 7670m for $500... this is definitely the best bang for your buck at the $500 to $800 price range

sweet deal you got there, but for 250 more dollars i'd rather stick with i5 < i7, 4gb ram < 8gb ram, 500gb hdd < 750gb, hd 7670m < 7690m, and i would like to say for a smaller 14" screen you get more fps than a 17.3" screen. but yeh pretty nice deal smile.gif

I see, still a good deal, how long do you think the weekly deal lasts?
**EDIT

I just found out the weekly deal ended? and it's the Earth day deal right now..

Is the Ideapad Y470p a good deal too?

i really cant see a laptop that beast this one with specs over price. if you want, i can take you a few shots/videos on how it performs if that makes you feel better on your buy, i can show you how it runs some games smile.gif

EDIT: i forgot to mention that the deal was so good i have bought 3 of these laptops in total xD (1 for myself, 1 for each of my parents) smile.gif

That would be awesome sir! I would definitely like to see some pics/vids of it. I love the specs and I'm just wondering about it's aesthetics. I do not want to be a bother.. but if it's possible could you make it by today? I'm not sure if the "Earth Day" $750 deal ends today or not. thumb.gif I will +rep for such help! Thanks! thumb.gif

Awesome! I'm looking forward to that. in the meantime I'll use the rest of the day to decide whether if I should make a purchase or not smile.gif
