TIPS FOR USING THE LENOVO OUTLET WEBSITE

You can set the filters you want and just keep changing the "show 10/25/50/100/view all per page" selection to refresh the view. Another peculiar thing is that the different "per page" views will update differently, so at any given time you could see different items in one from the other until they've all updated. The refresh cycle seems to vary from around a minute or less to several minutes.

Refreshing the page will clear all of your filters, so you generally don't want to do that.

Also, you may not want to use Firefox. For some users, the views get all wonky with FF, and the sorting won't always work.

If you're having trouble registering via the outlet website, you can register on the main Lenovo.com site instead.

CSR knowledge and helpfulness varies.
Good, recommended CSRs to specifically request:

Hey Guys, I got myself a Yoga 13 for $525 before taxes a few weeks ago, and now my gf wants one for her too. I noticed that there are no more 13" yogas on the outlet. Are they still replacing them (as they have been doing for a long time) or is it totally dead? thanks!
They are just sold out for the moment as they recently did a mass clearance on them this past Monday.

Most likely, but how well it will handle it depends on what configuration of the U410 you get. Check out a review here...

If you scroll down you will see their findings of this particular U410's gaming performance, which should give you some idea.

If you want a true gaming machine, then look for the Lenovo Y400 model.

lol, that's super for you. but yes son, i have proof. remember, i'm talking about cloning the existing OS install onto the SSD. You need 20GB for the full Win8 64 bit installation: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-u...quirements. And that's the OS these machines come with. Plus there's a recovery partition, bloatware, etcetera - you can't fit all that in 24GB.

So sure, if you want to buy Win7, or do a custom stripped down version of the install, yeah, I guess that can be done. But there's no way you can clone the stock OS on a drive that small. And forget about installing anything else.
Which is the same requirements for windows 7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-u...quirements, but which comes in at less than 24gb (around 10gb-15gb) with a clean install. Reason I used windows 7 as an example was because I dont have windows 8 available to check the original argument which was: "The stock SSD isn't big enough for a full windows install." And I beg to differ based on my own experience with 7, and http://www.intowindows.com/window...tall-size/ . But if there is any doubt, Im going to download and install a copy of windows 8 x64 as soon as I get my hands on it and see exactly how big the install size is.

Now, if you really want to go into the whole factory install, then yeah, you might have an issue because AFAIK, you cant even use the 24gb ssd cache for a target drive for the factory install (though I might be wrong on this). At which point, *most* users thinking of installing onto that drive will not be cloning the factory recovery partition, and the "bloatware" is pretty minimal, depending on the machine, rather, they will be using clean installs with OS only and some programs.

OK, I have no quibble with most of this, and you are correct, it isn't accurate to say that the stock SSD isn't big enough for a Windows installation. That wasn't specifically my point, but yes, absolutely, that statement is wrong.

However, I don't agree that most users won't want to clone the factory partitions. If you browse Lenovo forums, or those of notebookreview (or Tom's Hardware or whatever), it seems like most people 1) don't want to figure out how to install Windows from scratch/aren't interested in finding a valid Windows key; and 2) want to keep the one key recovery feature intact. To my knowledge, if you want to use OKR on another drive, you need to keep the factory partitions in place - and cloning is the most viable way to do this. I'm referring to the kind of process detailed here: http://blog.laptopmag.com/triple-...our-laptop - doesn't need to use Macrium or follow that exact procedure, but that's the general idea. And all I was saying is that you can't expect to perform that kind of operation on a 24GB drive. There's just no way.

Lastly - I think most people interested in really leveraging the SSD will want to install more than just the OS. The Y series machines (which, again, were the ones I was specifically referring to) are gaming models, and I expect that a lot of those buyers would want to put some games on the SSD (if only to speed up loading times). Obviously, you need more space for more applications.

A bunch of Y500 stock came up a little while ago. Most of the great deals are OOS currently, but it looks like a lot of churn is going on today.

Nice deal on a refurb Y500 650m SLI for $547.

How did you get to the wifi adapter settings?
I think the occasion when my wifi has gone out (U510) was when the batt ran low. Then it gets shut off and I have to use MS diagnose to get it to turn on again. Thru device manager I found a setting for the network adapter to "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". I unchecked that and am hoping the problem doesn't arise again.

I think I can only remember once when I had signal but could not connect.

From what I was told, 7-10 business days after they recieved the item. They recieved my return on the 9th and I still haven't gotten the refund back on my card yet.

Wow, Lenovo. They have some great deals but horrible customer service. I asked what is the status of my return and the person kept on repeating "7-10 business days". Guess it's just a waiting game. I better get my refund by the end of the month.
