Fantastic value, being able to save €100ish by dropping the OS helps a lot. Have to be prepared to wait a bit for delivery. The specs on a lot of these Lenovo ideapads are far higher than the cost suggests. There is another cheaper model I had ordered before cancelling and opting for the above. It is excellent value for anyone looking for a cheaper model. Dual channel memory on this :

Stupid question time...

If I follow the links from HUKD I get to a black page...and can't get any further.
I put the code from HUKD into the passcode box and it doesn' let me in...

Am I doing something wrong?

Blocked for me, seems like thats a rewards site for either internal staff or commercial customers.

Reading the comments it looks like the passcode expired. No surprise, I bet they sold a ton.

For best bang for buck go with the 4000 series processors, the 3000 (eg 3500U) aren't as good (both value and speed).
