Can we focus on the deal? The speculations are great, but I really wanted to grab this. If anyone knows how to keep an eye out for a similar deal, please let me know!
There will be more like this, dude, don't worry. This was really hot, no doubt, but I would be shocked if you couldn't get it for this price again within a month or two. I would probably have jumped on it considering the warranty. Shopdiscover not a huge deal for me b/c I would buy with my Amex anyway to extend the warranty.
As for keeping an eye out, it's kind of just luck. You can check the outlet every day, but you'll come up dry most of the time. Bookmark the outlet, bookmark a slickdeals search, and check em frequently, but don't go crazy.
The $630 systems seem to be going in and out of stock. Keep checking if you are interested. I was able to place an order for the first linked system with 12GB memory about 15mins ago. It was in stock around 6AM as well but I waited too long onre it was in the cart. Hopefully Lenovo honors the orders people get in. A few mins ago the second linked system had a couple in stock as well. As other people have said, this is by far the cheapest I've seen anything like this system. Though I've read about construction issues with the y500, it sounds like you can't beat it for the price range. And Lenovo gives a year warranty. Right now there is no restocking fee for returns as well apparently. Through 5/30 I think.
Oh and thanks OP, I've been eyeing this system the last few days.
