Hello All,

I want to purchase new laptop. I have checked that lenovo is running 3 years warranty extend offer, but on online stores Amazon, FK its not there. main reason is to opt for no cost EMI from amazon or FK.

so any dimers have experience regarding this whether we buy laptop from amazon or other e commerce site then can we extend our warranty by buying through it either from lenovo.com or local distributors? are they allow it or not?

also on lenovo.com price is high even from local distributors. i have asked ideapad 330s model with i5, 8GB has 56200 on local but on lenovo.com its showing around 58500 something.

I hope your purchase is not solely based on warranty extension cuz that would be strange. Lenovo seems to fare not so well in aftersales service and neither in the value for money criterion.
Edit: I seem to recall at least some dimers who had purchased from Paytm being able to extend warranty online even though the seller wasn’t listed specifically.

You haven’t stated your primary use-case
of the laptop.
P.S. Since you have had good luck with Lenovo, you could perhaps consider the Ryzen 5 version which sells for just 30k. Extra 4.3k for upgrade to 8GB RAM. You would have to trade away a bit of battery life though in return for nearly 2x faster graphics.

Yes. Except in overwhelmingly single-threaded workloads like web browsing benchmarks. However if long battery life is an important concern look beyond Ryzen 1st gen. which are characterised by high idle drain ( most don’t go much beyond 6 hours whereas Intel ones can range upto 8-10 hours ) . Plus Lenovo is not known for its battery optimisation. Ryzen 2nd gen. launch is around the corner.
