Couple of questions:

1. Is it better to buy a lenovo product from amazon? Or from lenovo.com?
2. Are the deals offered on lenovo usa site available to other countries as well?
3. Where to find best deals and coupons/sweepstakes for lenovo thinkpads (esp T series)?

Thanks :)

Welcome to the Forum.

May I ask what country are you located in ? (you can click User Control Panel above to update your Profile).

What kind of laptop were you looking for? Basic specs? What will you mainly use the laptop for? Some sellers here on the Forum may be able to offer you a better deal than what you'll find through Amazon or other sources.

Daniel :)

Welcome to the forum.
Samia is from Pakistan.

1) Buy wherever you can get it, from whomever is willing to ship to Pakistan.
2) Those deals are limited to USA only.
3) Find deals on websites in the country where you will be buying from.

given the existing circuimstances politically it might be very tricky buying from and getting delivery in pakistan..

the best deals are usually found in the USA and Canada..
the EU and elsewhere seem to be higher priced..

but buying online and paying with a credit card you will be hard pressed to find anyone willing to take the risk of a fraudulent credit card..

you might try paypal or using a bank wire to pay where the funds would be good once received..

just LOOK at the top of your screen and click on ECoupons or on the THINKPADS.COM :banana: links..

good hunting..
