Convince me from buying a Lenovo E570

I am getting a lenovo E570 Thinkpad, with a i7, 16 gb ram, 256 ssd, gtx 950M for $564.85 before tax.

My Lenovo B575 had issues with the sata connection (refusing to boot to the OS giving me a PXE Media Test Failure) so I am going to replace it with this.

I couldn't find any reviews on laptop aside from the posts on the Reddit thread and the reliability of Thinkpads.

people were saying that this is a better deal compared to laptops within this price range

here's the Reddit Link on how to get the same deal in case you are interested as well

if there are any other laptops that are better for the amount I paid, please tell me

The Lenovo Thinkpad line is rock solid. They hold their resale value too.

The only problem I have with Lenovo is their horrendous shipping times. If you are ordering anytime around the start of school or a holiday expect delays up to 2-3 months.

oh wow the website says expected ship date is December 3rd and a expected arrival at December 13, guess I have a while to consider my order

laptop is unshipped

did you try a different hard drive?

pretty sure the sata connection on the b575 is shot as the ssd I had inside had no issues booting up on my main rig.
I didn't feel like taking my ssd from my desktop out

I would still double check before getting rid of it.
I saw a review of the e470 it has an extra connector ribbon on the drive.

Please explain what you mean by that?

All I can say against it is the casing looks cheap and easy to break and that the battery is way too small. Thats like a battery from 2003 right there.

idk the specs and price look good. just don't throw it around cause it probably won't be durable

I don't know if it's the same with the e570, but I had not seen it.

Doesn't look like ribbon cables are a thing

Damn it Lenovo

@judahnator I see what you mean

Update Manufacturing

I've been happy with my edge 15 Lenovo laptop. My only complaint is that the stock HDD was SUPER slow. An SSD cured that problem. Now, all is good.

Yeah, I feel your pain.

After waiting over a month when the order was "Released to Manufacturing" I decided to simply cancel the order. I then went to Best Buy and purchased the model I wanted plus a memory upgrade kit.

It did cost something like $50 more than it would have online, but my time was worth more than $50.
