There will be a pre-authorization when you place the order. Once your order ships, your credit card will be charged.

https://www.lenovo.com/ca/en/shopping-faq/#payments

During checkout, Lenovo will request a pre-authorization for the total order amount from your credit card company, this is not an actual charge. Once your order ships, your credit card will be charged. If you ordered more than one item, there may be multiple charges as items ship separately as they become available. This will not increase your shipping charges.

At times, we may have to re-authorize your credit card for the unshipped amount. This may result in a duplicate authorization that will be released according to your banks authorization hold policy. Again, this is a hold on the funds, not an actual charge.

I made a post before about how windows didn't recognize the onboard graphics and that was causing causing the video_scheduler_internal_error BSOD crash and how I fixed it by enabling hybrid mode and restart to force the onboard graphics back on and thus windows will recognize it and install the necessary drivers... well guess what, the other day I miraculously got another same video scheduler crash, i looked in my device manager and for some odd reason the onboard graphics card was once again not there anymore... Had to do the same steps above to get the onboard graphics detected and installed again... after which I went onto lenovo's site and used their autodetect feature to find out what drivers i'm missing, it recommended updating the AMD VGA driver, which I did... and it was afterwards that I noticed that the usb disconnect chime coming in at the beginning of each boot. Googled it and found other reddit pages with other users reporting same thing.... weird. I really love the build quality but the bugs are getting quite annoying.... starting to wonder if I shouldn't have reformatted back to Windows 10.... I still got the original windows 11 sitting on the OEM NVMe... really don't wanna have to plug that darn thing back in.
Is this only happening to people who downgrade?

Yeah, looks like they re-authorized my credit card again even though the shipping date is March 31st on my order.

Don't remember what the estimated shipping date was. But sometime over the last several days my estimated arrival date went from late April to April 14th. Hoping all their estimates are overly conservative.

On the plus side. Since I've ordered there has been an Amex Lenovo offer "Spend at least $1,000 and Earn a $100 credit." Hopefully it applies since they only charge when it ships.

I ordered in March 3rd. Initially estimated arrival was July 18th. Then estimated shipping went to March 18th, then March 21st.

And then today, March 17th, I received my shipping notification.

Much better than 4+ months!

Has anyone ever done an online return with Lenovo? Is it easy? ie. similar to Amazon, go in and get a return shipping label, and send? Or it is more problematic?

So if I decide to try this again, I might get the original one I ordered back in Jan. But with a larger Rakuten bonus this time.

building the 5800H with base specs 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD and adding the 3070.. LEGIONDEALS20 and ID.me discount I'm seeing $1971.59 in the cart before tax. (the current rakuten negates the 13% tax if your in Ontario)

also there are double lenovo rewards on right now as well, so $118 in rewards is added that you'll have a year to use.

alternatively .. the only real significant savings over the ones we've seen since BF would be the Legion 7 Gen 6 AMD (16") with RTX 3080 Part Number 82N600DUUS. Jan 10th as per the Elrondolio thread price back then after all discounts (rakuten, id.me) pre tax was $2,907.12 on the custom build Legion 7 AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, RTX 3080, 32GB, 2TB SSD

that spec'd model is ready to ship and after discounts (rakuten, id.me) the pricing would come in around $2448 pre tax and another $168 in rewards back. temping.

I did a couple of returns in the past. They send you the return labels and you bring it to the UPS store. It was fairly simple.

I ordered one, 3070 build, with Rakuten back in February. The original shipment was on April 13. I don't want to wait that long and I ordered another one ,3080 build, which is in stock last night. Then this morning UPS send me a message saying it will arrive on March 26. I end up cancelled the first order and going to keep the 2nd order. LOL
