Just noticed this laptop was back in stock at Lenovo if you use the Perkopolis link. The new Perkopolis passcode is MEMPksGLd. Rakuten cash back dropped to 7% today.

*EDIT

They appear to be OOS again. They must've had a small batch available for sale, because I was able to order one.

Just a friendly reminder that Rakuten cashback is very YMMV with perkopolis and lenovo

Agreed... if you use the browser extension, there's a chance you can get it to work.

I was able to get one a week ago and I love it! My only complaint is that the track pad doesn't feel smooth at all :(

Great... was worried there'd be something I might not like. I'm so used to my MacBook trackpad. Unfortunately no Windows laptop I've tried even comes close to it.

It's even worse than my previous windows laptop so I'm stuck with using a mouse. Now I gotta look for a good mouse to go on sale haha

I bought the Logitech Triathlon mouse a while back, and it can be paired with three different machines. It easily switches between them with the click of a button.

Debating canceling my gen2 think book from this thread

lenovo-canada-thinkbook-13s-gen-2-13-c- ... n-2445653/

I know they are different beasts.... 13",non touch vs 14" touch aside, how do they compare?
Portability/Battery life and screen quality are high on my list.
Then you have premium build, "power", video editing, I'm big on thinkpad quality keyboards etc. Would normally buy both, and return the one I don't want... But two G5 gamers and a Gen 2 think book already coming.... Argggghh

If you're talking about this thread, then the ThinkBook is better. Better CPU, better GPU, more RAM, faster RAM, better screen resolution, and Windows 10 Pro. Maybe it's just me, but I think touchscreens are overrated. I have one on my Dell XPS and never really use it, so getting a non-touchscreen was a no brainer.

The only benefit of getting the Yoga is the slightly bigger screen, touchscreen, tablet mode, and more ports/connectors.

Whoops... Accidentally posted in wrong thread.... But you nailed it. That was my thinking too.... I would use touch screen for screen casting, marking, tutorials etc... But I figure my S6 lite that finally shipped can take care of that.... And with super display app, I can turn it into a touch screen drawing tablet for the thinkbook.... Just gotta wait until the first week of March... But Microsoft Deal S6 lite should be here tomorrow!

Thanks for your insight.... Was slipping into "can't let a great deal slip by" mode.... Lol.

Take Care.

I ordered on Feb 10th and they are estimating that it will ship March 2, so they must be waiting for more stock to arrive.

For those who received it, is the AC power connected through the usb-c port? Did you order an ethernet adapter to hardwire router to? If power is connected to usb-c, I guess my best option would be usb-a to ethernet adapter?

Thanks for the info. The hub is a bit expensive for what I need. I will try out wifi first, but I have my whole house wired with ethernet so I might look into a cheaper ethernet adapter.
