Thread Summary
Most recent thread in Expired Hot Deals for the LENOVO 81SX00R6CF Legion Y540-15IRH:

[Walmart Marketplace] $709 Refurbished FRENCH KB LENOVO Legion Y540 GTX 1660Ti 16GB RAM 512GB SSD

There were two vendors in that thread: the first one was vipoutletcanada (eBay store, $720 + FS. IIRC) and the second was a marketplace vendor at Walmart ($709 + FS, IIRC)

IINM, this laptop model has been on sale a couple of times earlier at eBay. Please look for those threads yourselves. ;)

This is what was posted in the previous thread. Seems like the major issue people had was the left shift.

Read the previous thread: [Walmart Marketplace] $709 Refurbished FRENCH KB LENOVO Legion Y540 GTX 1660Ti 16GB RAM 512GB SSD

No, not easy to swap.

Edit: Looks like a very involved process to replace, so would not attempt unless you have a guide and are comfortable disassembling.

I have a T420 from back in the day and it takes me 2 minutes to replace the keyboard.

It looks like you are disassembling the **** space shuttle for this legion model

Bought one from original deal on ebay. One of the best purchases I have ever made on RFD. 144HZ screen is simply amazing. Remap left shit button and keyboard is fine.

I am a sincere window user and i have not much idea of mac os or mac software..but i wonder Macbook or Apple for me " the road not taken" Whenever people asked about Apple product, I felt I am an idiot. I heard M1 is crazy. so keep eyes on the air..when I saw free Airpods..already i finished to checkout. I used more than 10 win laptops in my life..but i really tempted..this noiseless macbook air. I heard that i should give up all i did in the past with windows.

If I didn't order macbook air, i sure to buy this laptop..I also not sure of 3rd party walmart reseller. when peple got it from ebay seller. but when I click walmart deal was gone.

I agree. 100%. If u are sitting on the fence for a 1650ti clear out, this is by far the better buy. Value wise it even trumps the $899 Dell G5 SE deal a few weeks ago.

By the way, has anyone noticed the laptop clearance at
Microsoft store?

Sounds like you don't even know if Mac OS is for you.

If you don't seriously game, keep the MBA and learn to deal.

If you do seriously game, save your money, return the MBA and get this laptop.

You're not properly gaming on an M1 MBA, unless you have a computer for that purpose.

sorry, what is MBA? Master of Business Administration? I'm not seriously game at all but I feel frustrated when I test to try free amazon prime games when it doesn't work with my new base model desktop without GP.
