Is this a good deal? I just picked it up because I had some points to use so I got it for 450 after tax. The guy at the store was trying to tell me a toshiba with an older I7 was a better deal.

Have to TU the deal just based on specs to price ratio alone. Never heard of a "P" Ideapad though...

Apparently a carbon copy of the Z580 that others (including me) got for $350+tax at Staples except for 2 GB less RAM in this one, unless somebody can point out any real differences.

meh, $500 for a lappy with a low end resolution and without discrete graphics is lukewarm. Especially without some fun features (backlit keyboard, etc)

FYI, new Lenovos at the same price point with backlit keyboards are due out this fall/winter.

The Z model has Bluetooth. The P model does not. (from what I could find from a google search and comparing at Newegg.

Also, the warranty on the model at BB says 1 year parts/labor except 90 day on the plastic crap that is going to break (keyboard, case, hinges!)

Newegg has an i3 z580 for $549.

Thanks for the legwork. The lack of Bluetooth and the extremely crappy warranty make this a cold deal for the price.

There will always be better ones for same price after 2-3 months. If you want to keep thinking like that, you will never have to get a Laptop again laugh out loud

Buying this would be somewhat stupid. Google Z500.

Anyway, I got a Z580 for $350. Certainly won't be buying this or any other for quite some time.

the lenovo warranty for the Z line is atrocious. Y series is much better. and with the Z you have to pay to ship it to them (not so with Y). I would avoid the Z line (in their words "lower tier") at all costs
