Lenovo had another price drop on the Y500 Laptop. Use the Barnes and Noble Gold affiliate website below and save $30 over the standard Lenovo website. You must log in or create an account for the affiliate pricing.

Once logged in navigate to the Y500 page. Second selection should be for the IdeaPad Y500 Laptop - 59371972. You could choose a different configuration but this one is the best value. Direct link:

http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrar...e=59371972



Current promotional pricing using IDEADOORBUSTER code is $869. Through the above link it will be $839. This includes the GeForece GT750M and the 16GB SSD drive which acts as a cache (OS is not saved on it).

Yesterday the price for this was $899 without the 16GB SSD. The last deal on this was $799 for the model with the GT650M graphics card. The GT750M is superior.

Full Specs:

  • NVIDIA GeForce GT750M GDDR5 2GB

16gb ssd? what exactly can you put on there??? win7 looks like it takes up like 20gb on its own lol
It's just a cache. The OS will still be on the C drive.

I got a more compact y400 in the mail last week, and now these deals come out, lol. I wonder how much more performance an overclocked 750m would offer over an overclocked 650m. The latter performs near gtx660 levels, and better if the BIOS could be modded to increase the gpu voltage. The future SLI support for the 750m is also a question.

Can the Barnes and Noble $30 discount be used with the student/business discount site on lenovo (which gets you about $10 off the sale price)? I originally got the y400 with the 650m for $719 sale - $10 student - $10 customer service deal = $699. Might consider the new model if it's less than $50 more.

Gup: If you need the very best graphics performance, go for it. Otherwise, if you have to spend less, the 650m model is still a powerhouse, and is guaranteed to be SLI compatible should you choose to buy the ultrabay SLI card in the future.

Been debating between this and the new 2013 Bestbuy Samsung Chronos 15" (which has a slightly brighter touchscreen 1080p panel and excellent 8 hr battery).

At this point, slanting towards the Sammy mainly cos the battery life apparently sucks on the Y500 (being geared for gaming).

My last gaming laptop was a 17" heavy ass Asus n71 with 2 hr battery life so I told myself my next laptop would be a MacBook Pro (and then realized I couldn't afford it..lol) or any lighter 15" notebook with a decent GFX card and excellent battery. Me hate power bricks.

But for under $1k shipped on this Y500, you are getting some serious hardware in a laptop (albeit the battery life thing).

this is great system for someone who doesn't have to carry it a lot. as a student < 3 pounds is a big deal. if this was just something you carry to the car to the office to the house i would jump on it, but when you are walking miles with it on your back this adds up. still tempting to upgrade from my series 5.

I'm not able to register on my shitty android phone (HTShitty Evo). Could someone tell us the # of USB 2.0/ 3.0 ports, weight, length of warranty, and whether it has a backlit keyboard.

Does Discover double the warranty of electronics like some Visas? I may end up applying for one of those if so. So far during the last 2 years I've ended up with busted Sony Vaio i7, Toshiba Qosmio, HP DV7, and almost a freaking Asus G51. Next in line is China brand, lol.

Edit: Does this laptop have one of those things where I can add a fan inside the laptop? I forgot what that is called. Sick of these crappy, expensive notebook coolers from Zalman and Coolermaster that do jack shit.

If you don't mind 720p on a 14" screen, get the Y400 model instead. It's cheaper, smaller, and significantly lighter, with the exact same amount of power. My old 15.6" laptop wasn't a heavyweight, but the switch to a 14" is a very noticeable load off my back, lol.

And as far as battery life goes, you can squeak out nearly 5 hours on the Y400 with power saving mode, keyboard backlight off, and medium screen brightness. You'll most definitely get well over 3 hours of battery life.

I was under a similar dilemma. I really like the Samsung laptops and was looking at getting one but it was just too hard to pass up the value of the Lenovo. I would like better battery life, but realistically my laptop will be at home 98% of the time as I don't need it to travel. But I do like the ability to take it with me on trips.

This will be replacing my current 8 year old "desktop replacement" laptop which weighs over 10 lbs. So even at 6 lbs. it's an upgrade. nod

Here's a link to the Y500 specs, shouldn't have to log in.

2 USB 3.0 ports
1 USB 2.0 port
6-in-1 card reader (SD, SD-Pro, MMC, MS, MS-Pro, XD)
Backlit AccuType keyboard

http://www.lenovo.com/products/us...ries/y500/

And yes, I believe a fan can fit into the Ultrabay. Link:

Ok, thanks friend! I'm getting an "unable to connect" message when I try to click on the links in your post and the op's post (could be the retarded phone), but the info you provided is useful enough.

Got one. $839 - $50 Capital One coupon (assuming they ship before the 27th) - 2% cash back (capital one) = $772 + tax (tax was $50, here in MI). Super good deal.

Been scoping out laptop deals for over 6 months now - this is probably the best one I've come across yet...but I'll wait it out a bit longer.

Increasing the V's on a laptop seriously increases temperatures to dangerous levels. People in the library / boardroom will think you're testing afterburners inside your laptop when the fan starts screaming while you're on your headphones.
