I can't find the laptop you're describing, could you link it?

It not a direct link. When selecting the Y540 and clicking view or customize, you’re presented with build your own or prebuilt options. Scroll to the right. I added another image to my post above showing the price drop message

When I try to enter the coupon it says "The coupon you activated is expired. Please try another." Anyone else getting that?

The difference between a 2060 6GB and 2070 8GB Max-Q run anywhere from 3% to 15% higher max frames and generally better 1% performance across the board (with a few outliers where the 2060 is actually faster in a few games like Assassin's Creed Odyssey, etc). However I don't just place value on the current framerate differences (which are important): 6GB vs 8GB of ram will increasingly play a more important role moving forward (Red Dead, Metro, et al) and, most important, I want my laptops to retain as much value within 24 months as possible for resale. On a PC you can throw in whatever you want to maximize resale value, on a laptop you cannot. That 24 month mark combined with current performance and longevity are why I'd choose the 2070.

The code is case sensitive, make sure you are entering SAVE30 with no white space.

i'm pretty sure they adjusted, because now the same setup turns out to be 1350.99

SAVE30 still works just fine on all builds from here (same prices as quoted earlier).

Thanks so much!

I'm being redirected to the Lenovo EPP website asking for Lenovo serial number and Last Name after I sign in the Lenovo SMB Pro login page.

Quick Edit: Deal may be dead. Coupon SAVE30 is expired.

SAVE30 just worked for me - I had to type it in CAPS though...

Thanks OP!

I can confirm it uses another code (BFCM18) for the 1660ti prebuilt model 81SX000LUS $300 price drop (3pm ET). Therefore SAVE30 cannot be stacked with it.

SAVE30 replaces the existing codes, not stacks with them. Does it not replace with the pre-built?

How much is the quality of 740 better than 540? I have the 17 inch of the y540 from the price error and I'm not impressed with the build quality (even though it's quite decent).

Much better from what I've seen/read. Uses aluminum vs plastic, and the cooling is better.

Thanks! Other than the chassis, are there any different in quality like mobo, ram and other components used?

I mean the guts are the same. The Y740 has G-Sync and if you get the 15" version you can get a 500nit screen

Specs wise it's going to be identical.
