[Lenovo Canada] Lenovo Thinkbook 15 Gen 3 - 15" amd - $811.44 - 6% rakuten?

Although I just bought the Thinkpad T14 G2 on the other thread, I noted a reasonable looking deal if you don't mind that this is a thinkbook.


Thinkbook 15 Gen 3 AMD (15") screen

Win 10 pro
1080p IPS screen - only 300 nits
8gb ram soldered but it APPEARS to support an open sodimm slot (confirmed).
512 gb SSD

720p webcam and 802.11AC are weak points

What do you guys think

the MSRP is $1449 (meaningless) but $811.44 seems to be a reasonable deal to me for a 15" Ryzen 5 with upgradeable ram.

I think rakuten is 6% back (- $48.68)

Not as good as the ebay flash deal; but getting close. I presume it is the same model.

Use promo code THINKBFRIDAYNOW and it'll be cheaper. I picked up the top variant (ryzen 5700, 16gb, touchscreen) for $877 before tax plus 12% Rakuten on Monday.

That code seems to have expired. And given that it's been a fair bit cheaper; maybe this isn't such a great deal and it can wait until boxing day.

Unless you need a gift for christmas.
