  1. Man The sale is going on for this laptop and you can get it around 850 bucks. I will be surprised to see if any other brand will offer it so cheap.

  2. I bought this while it was on sale last week for 750 bucks, arrived today at home and I am in office. cant wait to go back home and test this baby. I am glad I was able to get it so cheap. It is still going on sale but on a little higher price around 850 if someone is thinking to get one.

  3. yes i mean it, i couldn’t believe it when my friend told me about this site. i can tell you one thing, i’ve been getting paid about $200 a week just for letting brands know what i prefer to buy. its worth a try here: bit.ly/Yddc1p?=jjjqh

  4. No, the video card is not socketed or upgradable for the internal card. Unless Lenovo decides to make a different ultrabay video card, that one is written in stone too.

  5. As a lefty I find it slightly annoying when the trackpad is offset, but it’s done to keep it centered under the spacebar. The real problem is when that darned number pad is on the right 😉

  6. So Please Clear This Up For Me? I’m buying the new Y500 with the new 750m and a Lenovo rep kept telling me I need to buy a bigger power adapater and also a SLI Connector? I want to add a 2nd discrete graphics card in the Ultrabay so could you tell me what exactly I need instead of getting ripped off. From the video on their website it looks like a plug and play. I feel like Lenovo is trying to rip me off getting me to buy “options” I don’t need.

  7. asus g55 has better build quality(statistics 2012) and better cooling but not necessarily better in overall specs and performance. on g55 and y500 it out performs the g55 on the video card spec. slimmer lighter.

  8. Y580 gtx 660m. Y500 gt 650m sli(2x gpu)… performance = gtx 670mx roughly around 40% performance difference as of April 9, 2013. Y580 has an ODD Y500 no ODD. used for the 2nd GPU sli but swappable. Y500 is much cheaper and has better performance. it even out performs the g75 gtx 670m. asus g75 and g55 have better cooling. i7 $1099 i5 $889 on resellers but if you order online on the lenovo website it is much cheaper.

  9. Currently Y500 series have released the same config but with GT 750M. Can you tell if this is better than the norm GT 650M/ GTX 660M. I checked online but was unable to find reviews or benchmarks despite the claims that it beats 650 M and 660X hands down. Is it really worth having an SLI. Can I possibly play most games like Dota2, FarCry 3, Dishonored, BioShock 2 in high settings?
