[Lenovo Canada] Lenovo EPP (YMMV) - Legion 5 AMD Ryzen7 4800H, RTX 2060, 10pro, 16 GB DDR4 3200MHz,1 TB PCIe SSD ($1,146.86)

I was looking at Lenovo's EPP site and I noted that when I went to "customize" certain laptops on sale, the price did not update when I changed the configuration. I only tested on gaming laptops and it worked great. You can only upgrade components upto hitting the "price floor" (i believe as they ask you to call to complete the order if you are below the price floor). It also allowed me to upgrade to their Legion Ultimate Support for 1 year for $0.01. Mine is shipping in 12 weeks so I guess I will wait and see if I want to cancel.

I picked up a laptop which I think is great for working/gaming at home for 1146.86 all in. I just tried it again on the EPP site and the issue seems to still be there. Please note: this does not seem to be happening on the retail Lenovo site.

I think it's worth including RTX 2060 in the title

Did they fix it? I can't seem to setup the same one as yours at a similar price through IBM epp or perkopolis?

can I mine on this?

yes you will make enough to pay off your parents mortgage and retire at 24. Anyway a laptop with a 2060 will be worth 30k next year. There is also zero risk involved so you should buy as many of these laptops as you can.
There. I covered it all.

I just tried it this morning. Go to "gaming" header and to "gaming deals".. On left, select "build your own". Select a higher tier laptop that has available upgrades and try adding some customization.

I am using Firefox. It is still working for me when I try right now.

Ya I am getting significantly lower prices show up on mine. About 500 less. These are the ones showing up for me. I believe I am using someones Lenovo login for EPP. Maybe it is only for Lenovo Employees?

Thats my current machine and i absolutely love it. No thermal issues whatever you throw at it. A little loud when gaming but you can ramp up volume :). I rather have noise than a slowly dying machine due to overheating.

Only issue I have with it right now is the conservative charging to prevent from fully charging the battery always resets with reboots so it goes to 100% when it should stop at 60. They will refix it with a bios update as a lot of people reported it, otherwise, solid machine, solid performance, much better build quality than that asus tuf cheap bending crap.

Screen is terrible they used to have at least the 144hz one on this config but price is good. Too bad its only open to EPP and theres no way for us to access.
