This is a pretty good deal.

Should we expect to pay customs on this?

Thanks

No, if its shipped by Lenovo then they do the clearing through a third party and ship via UPS.

I have experience from lenovo directly, I don't see why it would be different if lenovo is doing the shipping.

Not sure what the returns and support policy would be on these, it shows as new and not as refurb or open box. Not to mention the e14 gen3 is new, and they wont last more than a couple of days. There has been a stock issue, they come in and are gone in a day or two.

No. In the item description, it says "Lenovo covers all logistics costs for domestic and international shipments."

The price is warm. Warm is good, warm isn't hot

What's the differences between T14 and E14 now? There used to be a clear distinction among X, T, E series but with the introduction of L series, it seems E has share a lot of the design and material as T series.

T has some metal here and there, mechanical dock capable, and enterprise inventory and other management software/hardware capable at hardware level.

If for home use, i would only get T if you were using a dock.
Also look at HDMI specs on E, the T does 2.0 whereas gen3 hdmi is 1.4b... here are the differences with ports available.

E14 G3
1.USB-C 3.2 Gen 1
5.USB 2.0
2.USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Always On)
6.Ethernet (RJ-45)
3.HDMI 1.4b
7.Kensington Security Slot
4.Headphone / microphone combo jack (3.5mm)


T14 G2
1.Smart card reader
7.Side docking connector
2.USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Always On)
8.USB 3.2 Gen 1
3.Ethernet (RJ-45)
9.HDMI 2.0
4.Kensington Security Slot
10.Headphone / microphone combo jack (3.5mm)
5.USB-C 3.2 Gen 2
11.MicroSD card reader
6.USB-C 3.2 Gen 2
12.Nano-SIM card slot

Comparing grapes to raisins here.
Upgrade laptop is accessible to anyone far from playing with an operating system (IMO). At the right time of the year $567, you put $40 for 256GB in the second m.2 slot and replace both RAM for $40 each slot or stay with 12GB RAM. Total should be $647-$687 without including Rakuten.

Just answering the guy asking why it is not a hot deal based on what happened in the last month and probably will during black Friday. As of today, the deal is warm at best.

EDIT: Of course, there is more going on than the price. For example, the dell has both RAM not soldered, but it has WVA touch screen vs IPS panel if not used dock all the time.
