Very good deal so far this year, I have found. Ignoring few lucky folks who were able to double dip with CB + EPP + Coupons, etc. May be handful got those.

Start with the link: *Still working*
https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/lapt...customize?

My choice of options, choose as listed below:

Use the code: THINKBUSTER

Price Computation:
Cart price: $1,792.00
After Coupon: $806.40
Tax (CA) : $882.98

Final Price after CB:
CB @ 15% : $132.44. ==> Final** : $750.54 **Expired on 11/27**
CB @ 12% : $105.95. ==> Final** : $777.03 **Current**

Technically my options was sold at $750.54 yesterday, and with today's cashback% it is $777.03. Lucky if you don't have state taxes, get much lower price.

Advice: CB% keeps changing. Now at 12% down from 15% yesterday. I choose the famous Japanese CB site (R a k). Always start from the CB Site for checkout to properly get the deal.

Choice Options:
● AMD® Ryzen™ 5 PRO 4650U Processor (2.10 GHz, up to 4.00 GHz Max Boost, 6 Cores, 12 Threads, 8 MB Cache)
● Windows 10 Pro 64 English
● 16 GB DDR4 3200MHz (Soldered)
● 128 GB PCIe SSD
● 14.0" FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS, anti-glare, low power, 400 nits
● Integrated AMD Radeon™ Graphics
● IR & 720p HD
● Fingerprint Reader
● Backlit - US English
● Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX200 802.11AX (2 x 2) & Bluetooth® 5.1
● Enabled Discrete TPM2.0
● BIOS Absolute Enabled
● 3 Cell Li-Polymer 50Wh
● 65watt AC


Choice selection suggestions:
  • Processor:
    Ryzen 5 is good enough for general consumers. You need a upgrade if you are going to run high computing operations. I'm an pro engineer, don't plan to run them, so choosing to ignore it.
  • OS:
    If you are consumer, should be happy with Home, I choose Win10Pro because I may need some OS features for networking.
  • RAM:
    8 GB + [extra] -- Works for many general consumers. Not good for high graphic users. Choose to buy additional 8GB to use the dual channel high performance option. Now, total 16GB is really good.
    16 GB + [extra] -- If you are planning use dockers, containers, high graphic process, ML computations, etc. Go for this option. With this you buy additional 16GB for a total of 32GB. Worth upgrade for Pros.
  • Monitor:
    Mostly I will use a monitor, but I have travel use case where this will be handy. If you are budget minded, just go with
    200 nits -- This is for suckers, not even 1080P, ignore it.
    250 nits -- Should be sufficient for many. Eg: Using in good lit environment (or) use a monitor 90% of time.
    300 nits -- Touch screen, power drain. If you desperately need it, go for it.
    400 nits -- Work in varied lighting situations well.
  • Storage:
    Don't buy at Lenovo, period. Super inflated prices.
    Per this laptop this is how its shipped to you:
    • • M.2 2242 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 2 [WWAN slot] : Empty
    • • M.2 2280 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 4 [SSD slot] : Loaded with 128GB WD SDD with Product Name "PC SN520 NVMe SSD" with interface standard "PCI Express NVMe 3.0 x2"
    I would suggest this:
    • Upgrade to 1TB NVME SSD: Good performance choices -- Samsung EVO $129 (or) EVO Plus $149 (or) SK hynix Gold P31 $134.99. These are special prices now. Grab them when you can.
    • If you want exact drive as Lenovo, you can buy chasing on WD SSD drive I shared above.
    • If you are budget minded, feel free to choose your drive.


Happy hunting!!

By all means, if you need 32GB. But very, very few people even need 16GB. The upcharge is around 20%, at that point you're better off just upgrading more often (e.g., every 4 years instead of every 5 years).
True. Any ram not used is money wasted
The T14 has a RAM slot, so if you're trying to get to 16 GB total, save some money by ordering only 8GB soldered and buying 8GB on your own (<$30). That way you also get dual channel.

Good deal if you're ok with waiting, but like other recent Thinkpad deals "ships in more than 5 weeks" kills it for me. Thumbs up though

bad advice. Max out the soldered RAM, so that if you want to max out at 32+ later, you can.
