    Hi good folk,

    I am planning to buy a T470s for my wife but the prices here in Sweden for the lappy are crazy and almost twice as much as the prices in US. So my questions are:
    -Is there a thing like Lenovo Outlet in Europe or where do you goto for your next Lenovo usually?
    -Are there any contenders to T470s price-wise assuming the build and weight are similar.
    -There is only one slot for ssds, is that right in T470s?

    If there is no such site, we might fall to T470 instead. I'm wondering if we get it with the extra battery, does it always have to be attached to the laptop or ?

    Thank you in advance!

    That's the official store but I don't know about outlet, if one exists in EU market.

    Prices in US are usually showing at 0% taxes, while prices in EU it is mandatory to include all taxes in the price tag.

    There is a good review that says:

    Something to read.

    Notebookcheck reviews are nice because they often crack open the laptop and show the inside. Both the e7470 and t470s seem to have one m.2 slot and 840G4 adds one 2.5" slot. Both dell and hp have two ram slots, while lenovo has one slot and 8GB soldered on mb, 2x16GB vs 16+8GB. Having part of the ram in single channel is a performance hit in my T450s, altough it is apparent only when gaming (I guess GPU takes it share of ram from the top and misses bandwidth). Not exactly an issue in my work issued laptop.

    You get free healthcare, we get cheap laptops. Pick your poison.

    Some US based eBay sellers ship overseas. That may get you access to better pricing, though you might be responsible for any duties or taxes.

    If you've got access to the Dell UK Outlet, there may be some better pricing on the Latitude 7480.

    Sweden has apparently 25% VAT and on top of that come some import/customs fees. Dell UK outlets sounds much wiser choise, until brexit happens :p
