Errrr, so frustrated they keep including an optical drive. Get rid of it and add more batteries or just lighten it up.

I changed out Windows 10 Home to Professional 64 bit and also changed the wifi card to dual band and added $30 more so my total is $539.40 + tax.

If you choose the SSD option - which is the secondary slot, it may NOT come with OS. Check the Q&A section.


If I order with the second hard drive can Lenovo install the OS on the SSD instead of the HDD?
Lenovo · 11 days ago
No, the OS is always installed on the HDD.

This is a very good deal. OMG must resist. Besides now I can't go back from my 17.3" screen. This is best laptop deal I've seen in about 2 yrs.

rated:
I'm very tempted. I haven't compared yet, but on my last ThinkPad it was cheaper to get the 250GB HDD and replace with a 250GB SSD from elsewhere, instead of paying the upcharge for SSD (and I ended up with a spare HDD). Same for memory, it was cheaper to get base memory and swap out. Is that the same now? I know I can do the research but if it's a no-brainer as it was 5 years ago, I would just jump on this with the cheapest memory options and shop later.

Also, with the "you must have a storage device" I'd end up with the small SSD and an empty slot, so I can use both. What's the answer on the OS? I assume even if no OS is installed, it still comes with a Windows license embedded in BIOS?

Thanks!

This is also in the Q&A on Lenovo site, contradictory to what's quoted upthread. No idea which is right, but as long as I have a Windows license guess it's not too critical (big download though).

Please be clear - if you only order an SSD drive and NOT an HDD, will Lenovo load Windows on the SSD? If not, and Windows Pro is purchased, will the user be given the license to load it on the SSD themselves?
Windows will be loaded on the SSD


No idea if the responder is right. ...but then what appears to be an answer from Lenovo:

If I were to purchase only the SSD for the E570, would there be a code or cd to redeem Windows 10 so that I would be able to download and install it myself?You would need to purchase Windows 10 separately.

Lenovo · 11 days ago
No, the OS is always installed on the HDD.

I think that just means that if you order a machine with 2 drives, then the OS will only be installed on the HDD. I placed an order for a machine with SSD only, and it still shows Windows on the order page.

Yeah I remember the free upgrade to XP that came with my Vista machine years ago. My only concern is I'm not abandoning my old machine so I technically don't have a Win 7 Pro license available. MS pricing is $199 for Win 10 Pro, and Lenovo will discount $220 to remove the HDD and Win 10 license.

I priced it with i7, 16GB, IPS display, and both HDD and SSD plus a couple of minor upgrades. Bottom line was U$683.40. If I pull the HDD (and Win license) it's $551.40, saving $132.

When I bought my X220 years ago, it was a no-brainer to take the base RAM and base HDD and throw them out, rather than a Lenovo upgrade. This time it seems more reasonable (based on very superficial search): they want $45 per 8GB SODIMM (first Amazon hit was $54 for Crucial), and $110 for the SSD (Amazon is $199 for a Samsung) [those prices are after the standard 25% but before the 40% coupon that replaces it]. I'm sure there are cheaper out there but last time it was like half the price.

What about extended warranties? They're advertising 20% off until Dec 31. 4yr NBD onsite is $200 (reg $250), which seems pretty reasonable. I'd think it was definitely worth the upcharge vs $135 for 7-10 days at depot.

Thanks!

swandown, I get it you mean he wants Windows on the SSD (which is where it belongs in this configuration) and Lenovo won't do it, it's up to the customer to re-install on the SSD?

Thanks that makes sense if I've got it right now, it does mean the other answer is right that removing the 500GB HDD also removes the Windows license. I'm thinking the two might be worth $132 together.

Well, that is certainly a discouraging answer but I wonder if it's just a miscommunication? Maybe what Lenovo meant to say here is "You would need to purchase Windows 10 separately if you want to install it yourself"?

i cant see how if you purchase windows 10 pro that you get a laptop with no OS or license by only selecting the SSD, that doesnt make any sense... i think the CSR was confused originally

Would be easy to return otherwise if it did not come as it is misleading

Anyone else unable to place the order when it gets to payment?

rated:
Yes, been fighting page timeouts trying to actually buy for more than 30 minutes now... Once I'm at the cart and click "check out" everything starts sucking.

rated:
I was finally able to get it to go through with Amazon Payments.

rated:
It did eventually work for me too, just using normal checkout. What a pain, though. Tons of timeouts and on top of that, I think it lost my cart and made me reconfigure from the beginning 3 times.

When you choose none in the HD slot, it auto-enables the SSD in the SSD slot.

  what is the benefit of dual band instead of wi-fi card?

rated:
Both cards are dual-band AC. The Intel has 2x2 antennas (max 867 mbps) and the Qualcomm has 1x1 antennas (max 433 Mbps). The Intel also has Bluetooth 4.2, while Qualcomm has 4.1.

Most people probably wouldn't notice the difference, but at $20 it's a pretty cheap upgrade. I chose to get it.

  You save about $200 by replacing the slow hard drive with a faster, better one.

rated:
I think this is a good deal but i'm not a techie, but huge savings!

rated:
The price is definitely superb, however, no backlit keyboard and touch screen option.

rated:
did anyone talk to the CSR whether the OS is loaded on to the SSD or not?

rated:
How is it for Gaming? Also please tell about battery as it`s 4 Cell Battery only.
