If one has a time machine, the 17.3" with same specs could have been had for $1086 or so.

Yeah, this isn't a great deal yet. Gotta wait till they start hitting $999 again.

Hmm. I ordered a Y740 (metal construction vs plastic) from Lenovo for a bit less last week. Its got a better screen, but not as good for disks (mine had 512GB SSD and a 1TB HDD) or GPU (mine had the 1660 ti).

But, when assessing this deal, its important to note that this one has some bumps from the lowest priced models on sale recently:

Its got the mid-level 300 nit screen. Most low end configs online only have 250 nits. A

An RTX 2060 while the other low price configs have a 1650 or maybe a 1660 ti. Lenovo (Dell and HP too from what I've seen) right now are charging about $200 more for an RTX over a 1650 and $100 more for an RTX over a 1660 ti.

16GB of RAM while 8GB is the usual for the lowest price models.

Ans as noted already, 1TB SSD.

Of course, if you don't want an RTX 2060 (1660 ti is a better performer with current gen games and costs less) , and don't mind upgrading RAM and drives yourself to save money, this isn't as much of a value.

But, if you want a laptop with this exact config, the price isn't bad.

1TB Nvme costs around $120. So not much difference. A combination of 250 GB SSD + 1TB HDD would be preferable for gamers.

I ordered a couple of weeks ago at $1299, called them up just now and they refunded the difference. Plus, no tax ordering from Texas is nice.

I personally think the 2060 is overkill for a laptop, and dont think youd really be able to appreciate it without a hier spec monitor.

I think the 1160ti is a much better pick and will save you a few hundred dollars.

However, this is my personal opinion, and if you're set on a 2060, this is an okay deal.

Doesn't exist. Slightly cheaper but 2060 is a better card.

Lenovo gaming laptops are not easy to upgrade.

Don't trust the reviews online about battery. After undervolting, turning off turbo, modifying the speedstep with Throttlestop and using hybrid mode to use integrated graphics, mine lasts 4+ hours doing office work (PowerPoint, emails, Excel, etc.). Super happy with this laptop (I have this exact same with rtx 2060, 1tb m2 nvme, also bought at b&h). To get the NVIDIA bundle, make sure you redeem from GeForce Experience instead of from a browser (I keep getting an error that GeForce experience wasn't installed).
