Deal: £429 Lenovo IdeaPad Z500T touch laptop

Buy the Lenovo IdeaPad Z500T from Very and get £100 off the cost of the laptop, down to £429. Like many recently launched devices, this one comes with Windows 8 and a touch display. Although we're not big fans of swipe and touch (other than on a tablet or smartphone), it looks as if this might be a must-have feature for mainstream notebooks.

Aside from these two, this is a classic model. It is powered by a third generation, Ivy Bridge-based Intel Core i5-3230 processor clocked at 2GHz with 3MB L3 cache and two cores. Other notable points include 4GB of RAM, a DVD writer, a backlit keyboard, 1TB hard disk drive, a 15.6in display with a 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution, Dolby Home Theatre, Wi-Fi, USB 3.0 and HDMI.

Lenovo has also included a number of innovative features like DirectShare, VeriFace and its own Energy Management Solution. It is likely that the so-called back to school period, which starts at the end of the month, will witness a number of significant price reductions on laptops based on Ivy Bridge.
