Need a laptop or PC? Check out Lenovo's 'warehouse sale'

Posted September 11, 2009

— Just in time for Christmas and not too late for the back-to-school rush, Lenovo is offering a “warehouse sale” of bargains.

The world’s fourth-largest PC maker has vowed to expand its sales to consumers worldwide this year, and its global headquarters will become a direct outlet on Saturday.

Lenovo will offer what it is calling “deeply discounted" new and refurbished ThinkPad and IdeaPad laptops and ThinkCentre desktops direct to the public. Some models will cost less than $300.

Starting at 8 a.m. and through the afternoon, the machines will be on sale in the auditorium of Building 3 of Lenovo's Morrisville campus.

Monitors and accessories also will be available.

Lenovo has invested heavily over the past two years in laptops and desktops designed for consumers, from “netbooks” of miniscule size to super-model, thin laptops and ultra-small desktops.

Warning – checks won’t be accepted. Bring cash or a VISA or MasterCard, Lenovo says.

The Lenovo campus is off Interstate 40, at Airport Boulevard at Exit 284. For GPS users, here’s the address: 1017 Think Place, Morrisville, 27560.

Happy shopping.

    Oops! That should be "I'll stick with my Dell"!

  • JaredsMom Sep 11, 2009

    The two Lenovos I've had at work didn't last. I'll still with my Dell.

    The ThinkPad and other items which were designed by IBM are fantastic and also have an unbeatable warranty.

    Yes, the Lenovo stuff is cheaper.

    journey985: Different systems at these sales come w/ different OSs, some will have XP, Vista or nothing.

    I've been to these sales, you really have to know what you're looking for. You'll get an inventory list when you get there, find what you want on the sheet, then try to locate the cardboard box with the item, then get into a checkout line.. Takes hours but you will save $ if you know what you want..

    why are they garbage? Well, when lenovo cleaned house in the past 2 yrs with multiple layoffs, 1000's of former IBM employees lost the opportunity to contribute their knowledge to the product lines. What is being sold is cheap poorly engineered garbage --> this and 4th in the market is what you get when you outsource it all to Asia Pacific and Latin America

    How are they junk? We switched out most of our Dell Laptops with Lenovo Laptops last year and we have had significantly fewer numbers of maintanence ticket issues (i.e. blue screens, driver errors) with the Lenovos than with the Dell.

    I have had mine here at work for a year and a half, and the battery just took a dump..cost of a new battery? $155. Other than that I have not had any problems to speak of. Question here is, what will these "refurbushed" models come with? Will we have to upload an OS?

    The ThinkPad line is by far the most reliable laptop ever manufactured.
