What does "Sorry, this product is no longer available" mean on Lenovo.com?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've decided that I do in fact want the Lenovo 5 14 inch, (with AMD 4500U) but for some strange reason I had the tab open tonight and when I hit refresh it changed with a popup window to say

Sorry, this product is no longer available

Unfortunately the "IdeaPad 5 (14”" is no longer available

 

Which is super confusing because it just came out in March. Is this due to the supply problem with Ryzen Laptop APUs? I chatted with a sales rep and they had no idea what was going on, all they said was "in my experience it won't be restocked", etc which of course makes no sense because of the above.

 

Anyone know what this may mean and when I will be able to buy the laptop?

This is what the page should look like:

Exactly what it means, it's not available.

 

It can either be because they've discontinued it already or because it's out of stock, just like nearly every other laptop with this CPU is. Either way, it doesn't change the meaning of the phrase "no longer available".


CPU: AMD Ryzen 3600 / GPU: Radeon HD7970 GHz 3GB(upgrade pending) / RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB DDR4-3200
MOBO: MSI B450m Gaming Plus / NVME: Corsair MP510 240GB / Case: TT Core v21 / PSU: Seasonic 750W / OS: Win 10 Pro

Ryzen 4000 shortage hit Lenovo very hard.

My laptop went from 48 hours shipping to "over 5 weeks" in the 24 hours I had it in my cart.

Yeah but that really doesn't help me in terms of timing. If it's discontinued I'll have to look for another model but out of stock is different than no longer available they have a different system for that, as you can see (i added another url to my post)

Well, shit. That's what I thought. But of course they wouldn't discontinue any lines because of that, only mark it as "extended out of stock" or something, right?

No. This happened with the Ideapad Slim 7 I was initially going to get. Every other week it was either in stock or listed the same way you came across.

Lenovo is weird. Their site is laid out like no one talks to anyone in other departments.

Okay I'll be watching it like a hawk then. Just yesterday I talked to a sales rep who said they would send me an automated email when it's in stock, and today, this. Thanks for the info. You should be able to reserve the next spot in line....

Take it at face value:

The product is no longer available from Lenovo, and they are sorry about it.

The CPU released less than 6 months ago and they are still selling 8th gen stuff on their website no way it's been discontinued
