An Ideapad 500 model can't be found on lenovo.com but sold in store

Hi

I live in Iran and went to a local store to buy a laptop, it offered a Lenovo IP500 with 2 TB of HDD and Core i5 6200U cpu with 8GBs of ram and AMD Radeon R7 M360.

I came home and did search it but I couldn't find it on any english official website but in some other Iranian online shopping sites. Is it possible it's a model for say, middle east and not released anywhere else?

Re: An Ideapad 500 model can't be found on lenovo.com but sold in store

Hi AHashemi , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Would this be for a 500-15ISK Laptop (ideapad) ?

Documentaion and information specific to the model support site here.

User guide  , Hardware Maintainance Manual , Product Overview  

 

Each model varies from customize parts differentiated by its MTM or machine number (ex. 80NT007PUS with Intel Core i3-6100U Processor  and only with Intel® HD Graphics 520 ) .

 

It is different from your customized design ordered directly from Lenovo thru worldwide distributors and partners depending on their marketing demands , part availability and regions (example: current model still coming soon in the UK offering 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor with Integrated Intel® or AMD Radeon™ R7 M360 and up to 16GB) . Store resellers may act as local distributor of the sales partners. 

 

So to answer your initial query, variant MTM /machine number for the model (with specific devices on the package) may not be available on one region but a distributor/ partner may have one specifically customized MTM order from Lenovo directly to be sold on a specific country.

 

Hope this help answer your query. 

Update us how it goes best for you.

 

Regards

Thank you!
I guess it's the same as the link you provided me.

Just wanted to make sure that what I'm buying is "Lenovo" not a fake model.

 

Problem solved. Going to buy it. Thnq.
