Windows 10 keys can be bought legit very cheaply online

Lenovo are charging €100 for the pleasure of having it pre-installed

Or there is always Linux

That’s from the Irish rewards Site with the e-coupon applied

Took a while but it eventually excepted the email code for that last 10%

Got it. And does that still allow the install of a second drive later on?

This seems like a very good price for this spec machine, with the 10% discount on the Irish reward store.

If you want the metal palm rest, you have to chose the higher spec model from the default series selections. Then customize it as you want. I did it both ways, and the only difference is you get the palm rest option on the higher spec selection (even though both customized specs & the prices end up the same).

Can someone point me in the direction of a review for this specific model laptop? I think I am looking at the correct model review, but I made a complete balls of buying an ASUS the last time, because I was looking at the wrong model

Also, I specd it out pretty well, but am I missing anything?

tbh im not sure you're going to get a review, i was poking around and these seem like fairly new configurations

that spec is plenty powerful and quick for pretty much most tasks that arent heading into specialised areas tho imo

To be honest, the laptop is specd to a higher requirement than is needed, but I am within the budget I was given! I generally try to future proof as best as possible. I have my own laptop for years and its still going strong.

Thanks Snoopsheep, for the initial recommendation, and the link above.

I still cant proceed without getting an error.

Is there a specific way of getting a laptop, customising it and proceeding without an error

If i use a URL from here it brings me to the serious 5, I can make a few changes and then boom error

If i go and use a fresh URL the code to enter doesnt work,

What am i missing

Great Deal, needed a laptop for my son's 18th and this looks like a right belter for the price, I maxed out all the options and got it €619 (obviously didn't get the pre-installed windows)... Thanks OP
