Went to best buy to try out similar models of 15.6 inches laptops. But this one is heavy, include number pads, which I don't particularly like. I was looking to get the Asus k55A at the store but found it to be heavy and didn't suit me. Only 14" now for me, cuz it's sleek and light.
I am still thinking on this.... I know it is a very good deal. Should i pull the trigger? Can someone pls tell me? grrrrr.... damn....
Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 (21512MU) Notebook
i'm still thinking about this laptop too..
all i need to know if the build quality and reliability in terms of no overheating issues won't be a problem with this laptop. i've never owned a lenovo in my entire life or knew anyone who owned one. after taxes, 528$. the display is what i don't like though
%-wise I think this (i5 3210+GT630M) is slightly a better deal but they are both very good. It comes down to what your budget is & how much you're willing to spend, and what you really need it for...so both deals target 2 different audiences.
This laptop is probably worth $600-$650 & targets the budget conscious, but we can get it for $480. (making this 20-26% savings)
The other laptop is a high end laptop that's probably worth $1000-$1200 but you can get it for $879. (making it 12-26% savings).

I don't think heat will be an issue with this. I've had the fan come on "high" and it's not really noticeable compared to my Mac. Note that I have the Staples HD 4000 model without the GT video card.
Stays pretty cool to the touch. Like all cheaper Windows laptops (and some really expensive ones), the trackpad sucks --- is way too sensitive. At least it's smooth (not textured like many) so doesn't grind the skin on your fingers. And the charcoal "brushed" semi-glossy finish really picks up the fingerprints.

I've never owned Lenovo either but read reviews from people liking them, more likes than hates.
For the money most laptops will have a deficiency, nagging part of some kind and sometimes come with their own problems, wifi card not connecting, glossy screen, keyboard, touchpad comfort, hinges, electrical outlet, aesthetics, etc.
So nothing is perfect. Even high end stuff isn't completely perfect. Since you have to pay tax, the deal isn't quite as good. Anything like this under $500 and it's a great deal. Since you have to pay tax in many other places then it maybe ok.

Will something better come along around BF?
Insight please! Before they are OOS
This is close to the best it will get. You will see subpar gaming alternative options like A8 4500m 7670m, A10 4600m integrated gpu, A6llano 7670m, A8 7670m, and maybe more Lenovo i5 GT630 deals, and all will probably be priced similar to this. I posted something along the same lines as this here: http://slickdeals.net/forums/show...tcount=121
Everyone here is lucky this deal didn't sell out already. So sometimes you have to think later and just pull the trigger.

This is a very good deal at the moment, but right before/after Windows 8 comes out are the current laptops going to drop significantly in price? If I can choose from a variety of laptops in a similar price range in couple months, I can wait that long.
