The pic on the OD website is incorrect. More pics can be found on the Lenovo site

here.

Possibly add a couple of FAR printers since OD has rebates on certain Canons and Epsons w/PC purchase.

Good although not as good as the Z61t.

Am I missing something here? How can you say this is not as good as the Z61t? The Y410 has a bigger hard drive, more ram, better battery life, and a better price.

thinkcenter said: Good although not as good as the Z61t.What are you smoking? This is a MUCH better deal than the Z61t

I've seen this laptop firsthand at OD on display earlier this week and it looked verrrry nice. It was the first time I saw that model, and I decided to google it before buying.


First & foremost If you are a fan of Vista or have no intention of using XP - then this laptop is definitely for you! (Please disregard the rest written below and check it out at your local B&M)


If you are thinking about getting this laptop with the intentions of putting XP on it, you might want to spend some quality time on google.

It appears that finding XP drivers for this model is a scavenger hunt. Some of the Vista drivers reported out there will work for some devices, but with the sound, exterior buttons, and WiFi there's been a number of reported problems. Another goofy problem is the phantom shutdowns reported. Long story short this is not as easy as trying to throw XP on a N100 that has driver support on Lenovo's site and personally I don't see Lenovo spending time making drivers when this system is intended for Vista.


The bottom line is that this laptop appears to have a solid build to it, and it looks really good! Many people still like XP and that could be a deal breaker with this particular model. I just wanted to give a heads up, because I spent a few hours looking for XP driver support before finally deciding to pass on this and wait for another deal.


(and yes this is much better than the Thinkpad deal mentioned above)

I need to order it today. But OD has removed the link to $150 rebate. Will someonePM it to me. thanks

I would also like the link to the rebate!!!!! I have been looking for another laptop!!

The rebate is still there...click on rebate savings on the page. here

That rebate expires today by the way.

I may check it outmyself today......one store by me seems to have it

I am using my wifes Y410 right now and it is really nice. As ccrows said, the lone drawback so far seems to be the lack of XP drivers for some items. Most of the hardware I believe has XP drivers, but some items don't. Since it comes with 2GB of ram though Vista doesn't run to bad though.

Hi ,
I am planning to buy this laptop today (oct 20th). can i use the above coupon for mail in rebat of $150 . the official site of Office Depot excluded that rebate from morning . the actual offer is between (10/14/07–10/20/07) . It means the date 10/20/07 is excluded or included .If included why they have removed ? I am in confussion .please help me .

Another Doubt : in the above coupon its mentioned " Office Depot® SKU 598-935 " is that an ID of a particular store or it can be used in any where (i want to buy here in Seattle).

Please help me guys !

I picked up the laptop yesterday. The rebates forms printed along with receipt. The OD $150 rebate form clearly says offer is for in-store purchases only and online orders with in-store pickup are excluded. Don't know what this means for folks ordered online. The laptop itself has glossy screen which I didn't like. The contrast isn't good enough for me.

It's probably a different rebate form compared to the one that FatherTed posted. Because the PDF didn't say anything for In-store purchase only. And the rebate form stated "3. For online or telephone purchases, you must include a copy of the UPC." So I think $150 still works if you ordered online before 20th.

I would like to know from those who bought one, what size hard drive they got. I saw two partitions. C with capacity of ~29Gb and D with 105GB. even after 1024KB->1MB conversion, I still get only about 140GB for the net size (the advertised size was 160GB). Also is the glossy LCD screen (highly reflective) typical of most other laptops that are coming out these days? It seems like a downgrade to me.

I don't have it in front of me but that seems like what I saw also for the partitions. But I think there is a hidden partition that they use for the restore. Just a guess. You might check this out also, I haven't read it all yet but I am probably going to... Clean Install instructions.

As for the screen it is reflective, I don't know if it what you consider "highly reflective" though.

It seems like a downgrade to me.i know what you mean.. i didn't like the glossy screens either when they first came out but the colors are a LOT more vivid than on the duller lcds so it may seem annoying to have the gloss but i assure you, it's an upgrade.

how this deal compare with this http://www.officedepot.com/ddSKU.do?id=531790

It seems like this Lenovo deal will come back next week so I just want to know which one to choose Thanks OP

It appears that the Lenovo is slightly lighter by 0.3 lbs, has a slightly faster processor 1.66 GHz vs 1.50 GHz and is slightly thinner 1 7/16 inches vs 1 9/16 inches, and a built in camera with face recognition software (biometrics ).

The HP has an infrared port and.... that appears to be about it..

So I would go with the Y410. I also think it feels like a more solid build of a machine, but thats a personal opinion. Don't get me wrong I don't dislike HP (my last 2 laptops have been Compaq's) but I am really liking the solid feel of Lenovo's. The Y410 I bought for the wife is my first time owning one.

The thinkpad might have the solidly built feel but certainly not the Lenovo 3000 laptops. The Y410 looked like cheap plastic. I returned it and waiting for a HP deal. I would have bought the dv2617us except it didn't have built-in webcam. May be something will comealong on BF.

My friend bought the L3000 Y410 and having owned countless laptops this Lenovo feels plenty solid. The screen hing is excellent and the body does not flex when trying to twist it in your hands. The build quality is better than many of the HP/Compaq, and toshibas you see on display IMO and FW members know how many laptops I have been through This laptop looks cool as well.

The speakers are ok but not as good as Lenovo advertises. The "sub woffer" does very little to bring out the low ferq.
Vertical viewing angle is not the best. The screen looks good when viewing straight at it but gets washes out fast when in vertical angles. Horizontal viewing was very good.

I like how the above poster thinks the HP dv2617us will have better build quality. TOO FUNYY!

went to OD to check it out, looks nice but the power and playback buttons are built onto the hinge so it looks kinda funny.

i've owned a few mid-range notebooks (pavilion dv2000t/dv2500t, Toshiba satellite, sony vaio, Dell inspiron etc) and from playing with it for 5 minutes feels like it's built as good or better than most...although i still prefer the pavilion dv because it's more stylish. my Toshiba u305 and dv2000t feel more "plastic-y". the Lenovo has a grey/black with orange fn buttons layout...meh.

also i'm not a big ibm thinkpad fan...looks like a black brick with the off-center screen. the Lenovo and ibm r61 were side by side and i'd pick the adopted lil bro Lenovo every time. i know ibm's rep but they do nothing for me.

So, is this a good deal? Does this Lenovo worth the money?

I don't know whether to wait for another one, which I prefer to Dell Inspirion 1420, or sweep this deal?

from my calculation it's $970 up front ($899x7.75% tax)...-230ar=$740.

This is not as hot as a Dell vostro deal, but the build quality is better.

Things going for it include webcam, +cpu t5400 1.66ghz(entry c2d cpu is t5250 1.5ghz), 2gig RAM. A comparable HP or Toshiba might run you around $800-$850 right now. My OD rebate took like 1-1.5months.

Thanks OP

Waiting some more reps

ps: just remind for those who's gonna buy it online, you can add a mini fridge (worth $40) for free

Coupon code: 34561218 - Expires 11/19/2007

when are the rebates coming back for this lappy? I am in dying need of a lappy like this. I almost jumped on the x61 but the adition of $300 and minus an optical drive kind of killed the deal for me.

It's on sale now for the whole week 10/28-11/3

i mean, it said $679 AR on the title, right now its 899+tax-$70 which is :/ for me

porkipine69 said: i mean, it said $679 AR on the title, right now its 899+tax-$70 which is :/ for me
I didtnt get your point, but even though you have to pay tax, the price after rebate is around $750, which is still cheaper than the X61 you planned to buy.


ps: Is this the newest Lenovo? I tried to find some reviews and info about it but failed. Also, there one more thing that I don't understand is that Lenovo company does not sale this laptop on their website.

ahhh, sorry its been a long day for me, I didnt notice the rebate links.

has anyone bought this Lenovo? some comments please?

by that, I meant some more

Hello everybody,
I bought this yesterday evening a very prompt decision.
This definitely looks smart and nice features.
Also this is my first 'owned' laptop (before this i have always used company provided lappy) and hence these queries:
1. The Norton Antivirus is only 90 days definitions
so do I need to buy the antivirus after the 90 days? how much does it cost? do i really need it?

2. Microsoft Office (trial version)
Again do I need to buy? how much would it cost?

3. Does anybody recommend buying service plan $130 for 2 yrs
The shop technology officer gave this logic - the 2 yrs service plan also covers battery which would definitly worn out within 3 yrs (1 yr mfr + 2 yr extended) and the cost of service plan would get recovered from the battery itself. Please suggest

Thanks for your help.

I never buy the service plan. They are expensive, and I always hear people dissatisfied with the service. for example people buy a 2 year replacement plan thinking that its the same thing as a warranty. But in fact when there is a problem, they will fix it or replace it once, after that your on your own. Also, $130 bucks for a battery is quite expensive and I would suspect unless the battery does not function at all, they would probably put a pretty stiff argument. I suggest you pay for it with a credit card that offers double the warranty, they are way more reliable.

Thanks.. That helps but did not understood what you meant by "pay for it with a credit card that offers double the warranty, they are way more reliable".
Is there credit cards that double the warranty? I paid it by credit card (for the laptop & I did not bought the service plan)but not sure if it offers some kind of double the warranty.

Most Gold & above Visa or MC has extra benefits of doubling manufacturer's warranty up to 2 years from the date of purchase. So if your purchase has 1 yr manufacturer's warranty, the card will cover it for another year. If it has only 6 months manufacturer's warranty, it'll cover for another 6 months. Call your CC company and ask them to send you the brochure for "Member's benefits" I forgot what it's really called, it's something like that.

I've done this with MC before for a digital camera. All I needed was submit a claim form, got a repair quote from a camera shop in my neighborhood, voila, less than a week after I submit the claim form and repair quote, the check to cover the cost of repair was in my hand. I was wowed!!

I think most of the AMEX cards and Visa cards have em. Again, check with your credit card company, you may already have it.

I checked.. my visa card does not have that feature too bad!!
