This one is similar except with a core i5-3210M and goes for only $249.99!

PM at FS (in stock online at $449.99). Would bring cost of the machine to $229!! Should be an easy PM as web codes are the same.

(not available in QC)

This is a superior and cheaper machine than the one posted by OP:
- faster processor
- faster RAM
- Intel HD 4000 video (not HD3000 like other)
- 2 USB 3.0 ports (none on other)
- bigger battery

EDIT: Must have been only a few in stock at BB as this sold out within minutes. Still in stock at FS, worth a PM attempt
You can't PM at futureshop if the item is OOS.

Wow, so cheap. Now where are they gonna ship it to me since I am in Quebec? :cry: :facepalm:
Currently, our suppliers and/or manufacturers are only providing this product in English which is not in compliance with the Quebec language legislation. Therefore, it is not available for shipping within the province of Quebec. Customers within Quebec may still purchase this product as long as it is shipped to a province outside of Quebec.

Is it possible to get price protection if purchased at Future Shop?

How about with credit card company.....is it tough to do? I have Capital Aspire One Travel card with some good benefits.

Anyone with experience?

That's awesome. I phoned BB to price protect and was told no because their was no stock at bestbuy.ca. Reading so many people who have been successful in getting the price adjusted I was a little fumed at not getting the money back. So I phoned back hoping for more luck with another CSR.

Second CSR right away knew what I wanted, she said they've been getting calls all night for price adjustments and she was more than happy to adjust my price. Got my $130+tax back on my CC within 7 days.

So if anyone gets denied trying to get the lower price, phone back and try again with another CSR!

It's weird that they'd say no. By that logic I'd then threaten to go instore, return the item and repurchase it at the updated new price. Makes no sense that they'd refuse.

Good thing they finally budged :)

Just called BB and will be getting the $130+ credit in 7-10 days.
Nice and simple in about 3 minutes (on hold for 10 though).

Congrats to all who PMed or got price protection. People who ordered through bestbuy check the notebook thoroughly as the reason they might have dropped the price could be all the returns they got with some cosmetic issues. I has 2 P580 from BB amd one from FS. The 2 from BB were pretty banged up and from FS was pristine.

It seems to be all random. The one (and only) I got from BB looks brand-spanking-new. According to the manufacturer date on the back of laptop it was made Dec 5th 2012. Checked the warranty online by the serial number and it still has almost a year left on it. Although there is a refurb sticker on the back of the laptop, I can't believe it actually is. There was no fingerprints, scratches or anything. Everything works great. I've had mine running 24/7 since I got it setup too.

I've heard of a lot of people returning them though due to issues (cosmetic or otherwise). Also receiving laptops out of warranty and having to contact Lenovo and sending them the bill of sale and everything to get a new warranty attached. So I feel very lucky with the one I got.

Since I got from FS after PM BB, I paid $363. Definitely not a great deal compared to what people have paid now $249.99. I was late to the party so missed out on another PM opportunity. Now hoping that FS drops price so I can Price protect :-(
