    I'm able to get the below laptop for £340 through an employee scheme, I really have little idea when it comes to tech but seems a good deal to me considering list price on website and Lenovo UK site.
    80X2006NUK, Lenovo IdeaPad 520s
    Would this be considered good value, any alternatives with similar specs at that price range?

    Any info would be much appreciated.

    I saw this on HotUKDeals as well ;).

    I’ve ordered and it should be here tomorrow. For the specs it seems like a really good deal, a step up from you’re budget laptop for sure. Reviews suggest it’s a good laptop, only slight negative is the battery life is only average (5-6 hours normal use), but I can live with that for the price.

    It’s OOS now though. Did you order in the end?

    I did, ordered last night in a bit of a rush because I missed out on a deal through JL over the weekend. I certainly thought it looked decent but wanted to get a better idea, as I said I don't really have a clue but was only £30-50 more than a couple I was looking at with pentium processors and 4gb RAM so pretty happy with it.

    My order has unfortunately been cancelled, not having much luck getting a laptop!! Hope you receive yours without any issues.

    Thanks. Sorry to hear that yours was cancelled, but I’m sure another deal will come along soon. Mines actually coming from the Netherlands, which is a bit odd, should be here tomorrow.
