This information is correct... Frys has had this exact laptop in stock for a week or two... I am not sure how they have had what has not been released, but they have it.... I asked Lenovo and they said they won't be selling it until mid-June.
Btw, I have not posted on slickdeals for a very long time for this reason.... This is not a slickdeals, so why is it on here? Slickdeals are to bring attn to deals that can't be found elsewhere. Just sayin'.

Yep, always a bad sign when the OP actively stick around his thread to defend it. A hot deal will take off on it own. Just let it go OP, it's not the end of the whole not posting a deal that makes it to the front page.

8GB is likely a typo, there are definitely 8GB memory chips for Laptops.
You can buy this laptop today with 32GB of Ram (4x8gb)
Sometime next week it will also inlcude Ivy Bridge Options as the chipset supports it.
There are likely lots of typos, such as the CPU being 2nd Gen.
They the correct wording from Lenovo will likely be fixed next week.
And laptop will support 16gb because the chipset supports the 8gb sodimms.

correct but until then this is the best deal, also you can pick it up in store, I don't think anybody does high performance computing on a 14" screen my weakazz n51 has been hooked up to a vh222h for the past 2 years when doing intensive work or gaming

Yes, you can buy it today, but you won't get it today.
Early adopters always get screwed... I would wait for a better deal.
Even when Ivy Bridge is officially released... it's only a 6 month wait for the "Refresh".
In September and October, you'll start seeing the i7-3670QM rolling out on laptops with 2.5 GHz clock speed on the low end, 3.5 GHz on the high-end (w/ TurboBoost).

also despite logic bigger screens in laptops don't make them cost more, a good example would be mid range HP's and Dell's

Doubtful... unless you live in Chicago, since TigerDirect typically ships out of Naperville, IL.
Even if you chose Next Day Delivery, there's no guarantee for Saturday delivery.
All of that aside.. is this thread really necessary?
"Most advanced consumer grade notebook available" ---> Until Monday?
$1000 for a 14 inch notebook seems a little high, even with discrete graphics.
The HP dv7-7000 series is likely to come in at under $1000 (w/ coupon), and has a 17 inch 1080p display, Beats Audio, 2 GB GeForce GT 630M or 650M, etc.
The HP dv6-7000 series will probably be in the $800 range with similar specs.

2. its the maximum supported by the slot not the chipset there is only 2 slots and the largest ram stick for notebooks is 4GB
|04-19-2012 04:29 PM|
"2nd generation Intel Core i7"
"Maximum Memory Supported 8GB"
That means Sandy Bridge, not Ivy Bridge. The CPU model number must be a typo.

But the sale of the 3610QM is prohibited.
In fact, Tigre Direct is not even allowed to advertise it.
I'm looking for an IB/Kepler Combo, but looking for drop a little more and get a 1080p screen, 660m, and Killer Nic Wireless with 3 antennas, etc.....
Should only cost slightly more ..............
