    Yeah for sure - I was thinking about looking for some app for my phone but I couldn't be arsed to tinker around with it or guzzle the battery if I'm out and about :p But I'm sure you'd be able to do something great with a phone. The expresskey thing is nice as its plug and play and quite discreet but its definitely a lot of money for what it is. Damn that wacom premium!

    Hope you like it!

    Thanks for the news! I've been having trouble getting out of bed in the morning going to work because I have flexible hours, this got me out of bed in 5 minutes and into Best Buy in 15 :p

    They did the price adjustment no hassle at all. :)

    Damn, that's a good deal! If I get a friend in the US to ship it over here - even with import tax - that's a respectable <£650 price tag. Despite the different keyboard layout and concerns over returns I am really tempted to go for this. Genuinely surprised by the $700 sale.

    Crumpets - you can set the keyboard to be uk in windows so it's the uk layout software wise. By habit my fingers find the " and @ keys in the same place but I guess you could put stickers on the keys if you really wanted to. I don't think it's necessary really though.

    You can replace the keyboard once they turn up on eBay or something.

    Hey guys. So I'm wondering whether I should return this laptop and just get a whole new one for 700 dollars instead, or if I should just get it price matched.
    I don't seem to have any major problems at all, just a display driver crashes infrequently, and even more infrequently a BSOD (really rare).
    Have you guys had any issues with this, and how do you solve it?

    What's the production date? I'd probably return it and get a new one. My 2nd unit became worse with time over the 2 days I owned it.

    You may want to dump your BSOD log to the "tenforum" for the windows 10 experts to check if the problem is just a common Windows software problem. Microsoft do bad things to new hardware. It doesn't worth you to go back and forth to exchange the devices and only to find out it is just a software problem. Good luck!

    I just requested for a Price Match by calling their Toll-Free number thru Skype. :D That was a lot of savings.

    Quick question, apologies if it's already been covered in this gigantic thread - which particular cpu and gpu models are used in the best buy version of this notebook, and which cpu model options are planned for lenovo's official 460 release?
