Deal Details

Someone posted about this computer before, but I don't know if they realize you can use the new $75 Staples coupon to knock the price down to $265 + tax....I thought I had better alert some people who want to get a great deal on this computer. Here's the link to the computer at Office Depot.....I just picked one up at my local OD here in Nashville

To respectfully answer your question "why" ..... I am a single mother of two girls (5th & 10th grade), I am unemployed and must budget with limited funds, and they share one semi-working computer. To my family, this is an AWESOME deal and both my girls will be thrilled to have a functioning keyboard. I am grateful for the chance to give my kids a well deserved, yet very late, Christmas gift. So to directly answer your "why" ...because I can not afford $500+ for a computer and I am stoked to be getting a $480 computer for $265 that is more than sufficient for our basic everyday needs.

This might be a stupid question (so be it) but where do you get the $75 Staples coupon?

Attached is the coupon.

I just talked to an OD manager this morning who stated that there was a corporate email that went out to all the stores to put restrictions on the coupon. The laptop you're purchasing must be the exact model that Staples have and if Offfice Depot have it at a much lower price then they have a right to refuse the coupon. But I heard from others here have mention that the wording was that if OD has a similiar laptop that shows IN-STOCK from a competitor then they may let you use the coupon. I guess it depends on how you interpret the new corporate policy.

So the verdict is 'Yes' the coupon is valid but due to all the new OD restrictions 'No' you will not be able to use it. Frown

At my store that I work at we take open box returns no problem.

That is nice to know. however it's not in the return policy.. I hope to never have to drive to your store to return something.. the fuel costs would likely be more than the item I am returning Wink

Anyone know where to buy the Lenovo blessed WiFi cards? I would like to get the one with BT 4.0 support (FRU 20002051), but I can't find where to buy it. I suspect if I put a stock Intel card in it, the BIOS will complain at boot time.

oh it will! i have an initel wifi/wimax card. it's on the blessed list but does not have the FRU firmware. The lenovo spit it out.


I can only suggest fleebay or suck it up and blow the cash with lenovo.

Also what's this talk about the Wifi card? Will I not be able to connect to my home's TP Link router since it's not made by Lenovo or what?

You will be able to connect no problem. It is only a problem if you want to remove and replace the internal wifi card in the laptop.

Buddy and I bought two of these last night. No hassle, accepted the coupon from staples just fine. Went in, said im looking for 2x G580, showed coupon. he walked us to the register, in and out in under 15 minutes.

It's really up to the employee you get. The guy who helped us was the Manager, he didn't have a problem with it. Could have been due to the rain, sales might have been slow, and we prob helped him make his night.

Office Depot just went up in my book. I spoke with someone via chat on OfficeDepot.com - they told me they would honor the coupon, in store, but that there wasn't really anything they could do online to help me. Then I explained the nearest OD is an hour away. After giving him my zip code he set it up so that I could just email them the coupon, explain what I wanted, and we could just do it via email!! Well after having to send two of them, I got my $79 credit (including tax) by not even having to go to the store. I farking love SD and OD. Smilie

I went to OD to get one and was disappointed to find out the NIC is not gigabit. Now day company still making 100Mbit NIC, really? at least it has more USB 3.0 port (2) than old technology USB 2.0 (1).

The hard drive made in December 17, 2012 and is SATAII 3.0GB. Come on, why company keep old tech around to annoy people like me. I'm not too greedy, but the cost to make a SATAIII controller VS. SATAII probably the same.

System can not handle Sandisk Extreme 120GB because it's 5V 1A, flickering and refused to boot. The hard drive came with the system is .55A. It does boot up with SSD Verbatim 120GB SATAIII, Verbatim does not put the power specification on the drive's label so I'm assumpt that it is less than 1A.

it has 1 module 4gb of RAM.
Why would they ever include a SATA III compatible motherboard on a budget laptop that's not going to be getting an SSD?? HDDs don't yet bottleneck a SATA II connection anyway. What you're asking them to do makes no sense financially

I purchased this laptop on Sunday for $340. Went in last night to get a price adjustment and the manager refused to honor the coupon. Said it didn't apply to items already on sale...and that Staples doesn't carry this model...blahblahblah.

Just got offline with a chat session from an Office Depot CSR (gotta love it, they're there chatting at 3am) and have confirmation that the coupon will be accepted by the store. Unfortunately, the nearest OD is 45 miles away, so I will call and speak to a manager in the am to insure that the store will honor the "chat" with the CSR. I was chomping at the bit last Sunday night reading the thread about this computer but just couldn't spend the money....but take another $75 off.......I bit, kicked and ran to the finish line. I will follow up in the morning. Feeling good about this.....Mr Manager at OD #2339 in Rancho Cucamonga.....Please don't mess this up for all of us at Slickdeals.....
Make sure to say "Hi" to that store MGR and tell him/her that I'm the King Of England as well!

Good luck!

PS. Chat CSR will say "anything" to get you off his/her chat line, including promising you his/her first born!

No this one is the same specs but an i3 c855-s5194. It's fairly quick (I put start8 on it and a ap that stripped metro out of it). I also like the feel of the keyboard. The touch pad is a bit well touchy but I am sure I could adjust that.

If I had to pick on it.. both memory slots full. mini PCI slot very hard to get to.c
Thank you for the info. Toshiba c855 with i3 which is my first choice is OOS at Staples within 50 miles so I thought I would get the one with B980. I may be able to get a rain check with the coupon......
