You might want to contact them and get the ram bumped to 8gig, otherwise its a decent laptop for the price.

Dump windows
Processor fine
Upgrade memory
Add backlit keyboard
Upgrade wireless card
Upgrade charger cable
Upgrade panel


Lenovo newsletter reg for 10% off evoucher:

https://www.lenovo.com/gb/en/emailSignup

Even without the rewards access, the above 10% still gets you a good deal with either of these. Dumping WINDOWS in the configuration to save 90 quid is the real sweetener

Edit:Throw in fingerprint scan for a fiver

Definitely go backlit keyboard and add fingerprint scan
If you’re not going to add 2nd HDD, dump the dummy first HDD which then allows you to upgrade to 70Wh battery.

jaysus if you can see any deal like it on the irish site id thank you for a pointer!

(or if you get into the uk site for the deal, even without ten percent off or whatever its a great setup for the money imo)
