[Lenovo Canada] IdeaPad S340 (15”, AMD) Laptop - $522 + HST using 10% Rakuten

Came across this here deal that may be a better alternative the recent Dell 15.6.

Original deal with TN screen and no Touch is below. Better deal is now first with Touch screen and IPS. Along with additional 5%. Both updates thanks to @awsemo

Link is to both Touch+IPS ($629) and Non-touch+TN ($579). All other specs are the same as per below.


My order for the Touch+IPS along with the 5% discount was $676 all in. I'm expecting $63 back from Rakuten for a total of $613 (Taryag - it was meant to be)

I like this deal. Ryzen 5 is serious and can even play games with on board video (Vega) GPU. Easily plays StarCraft 2, basic settings fortnite, etc.

Edit - this is a buy for me. FHD, pcie SSD 256GB storage, 8GB ram, English and backlit keyboard... And of course the Ryzen 5 CPU/GPU.

screen is 15.6" FHD (1920x1080) TN 220nits panel.
Rather pay some extra $$ to get the IPS

Free returns, could grab and wait a bit I guess. But this seems solid to me. Not many Ryzen 5/7 deals out there. I'm still wishing I was able to snag that Ryzen 7 deal a couple weeks back.

Student and teacher and military discount took another $30 off, on top of the 5% code. Ebates may be denied if you stack them.

Going to update the original posting to include the Touch model as it has Touch and is IPS. Better deal in my opinion (and the model I ordered!). Thanks really goes to @awsemo for noticing this and for the bonus 5% coupon which also worked on my order!

Thanks @awsemo

Where did you get the 5% discount from? Also RAM is upgradeable or no?
