[Lenovo Canada] Lenovo Thinkbook 13s i5-1135G7 / 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD / WQXGA (2560 x 1600) IPS = $664.05

Don't use the supplied eCoupon. Use coupon EXTRAFIVE instead for $664.05 and don't forget ebates of 6%.

I would say this might be a better deal than the $538 clearance deal listed earlier today: 16GB RAM, arguably a better processor, better display.

Many will have to get into the still-not-great Windows scaling given that this is a 13.3" screen paired with whopping 1600p.

When the ram is soldered like in this, does it run as single channel or double channel? Is that even a relevant thing in today's machines?

Lenovo says this model is "dual-channel"
Dual-channel is relevant to applications that need memory bandwith


from https://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/ThinkBo ... 20V9004DUS

Memory Slots
Memory soldered to systemboard, no slots, dual-channel (8GB or 16GB model)

How do you like it? I'm thinking of upgrading my Gen 1 - 16:9 screen and cooling is subpar.

I know it's a Thinkpad vs Thinkbook but other than the build quality of those lines, price wise is it better to save around $200 taxes in to grab this.

the only problem i have is the keyboard is not as good as my thinkpad T490s
but outside of that, it is very quiet, keeps cool, runs fast and i use an eGPU dock for gaming (sorry AMD :P)

Thinkpad has better CPU, better keyboard, better touchpad, upgradable RAM, brighter display, RJ45 and thinkpad build quality.

Thinkbook has better resolution, 16:10, more portable (1.26kg vs 1.47kg), usb 4 with thunderbolt 4, 16gb out of the box. It'd cost around $40 to add 8gb to thinkpad.

It's a matter of preference and usage. But for the majority this one is the better deal.

Just curious when was the last time you tried Windows scaling? I remember this used to be a problem, but haven't even thought about it in years despite using very high resolution displays.
