Decently priced Lenovo IdeaPad Y480 Ivy Bridge Notebook on pre-order, get one of Lenovo’s latest Sandy Bridge Notebooks.
If Lenovo is your brand name and you are in the market for a new Notebook, Lenovo just happens to have one model is for now is only available for pre-order but since time flies, you will have it in your hands before you know it. If you want to go ahead and pre-order it is available at Amazon and it has a starting price of US$899 for a basic configuration.
Specs you can find in the Lenovo IdeaPad Y480 are an Intel Core i7-3610QM quad-core 2.3GHz “Ivy Bridge” CPU, Nvidia GeForce GT 630M dedicated graphics card, 8GB RAM, a 750GB hard drive, JBL stereo speakers, and a $999 price tag, not bad for an i7-based laptop with a discrete GPU. Things are not all smiles and sunshine since it only has a battery life of 3.5 hours. Obviously not a notebook for people on the go.
Other specs you can find on the notebook are a 1366 x 768 screen resolution and brushed metal lid and palm rest, and a backlight keyboard. So far the release date for the Lenovo IdeaPad Y480 Ivy Bridge Notebook is April but lets just cross our fingers that nothing changes. Just in case these are not the laptop you are looking for, you might be interested in the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560p and Y460p Entertainment Laptops.
