    Has anyone found a hard drive caddy that works in the Ultrabay? I have the dual video card version... but I'm not a gamer (it was all they had available at the time). I bought a 9.5mm caddy, but it does not seem to work.

    Lenovo uses ExpressCache instead of Intel RST. Start command prompt as administrator and run the following command: "eccmd.exe -info". That should give you the details of your SSD cache and how it's being used. More info in this thread.

    By the way, has anyone tried installing Linux? What's the deal with UEFI and installing linux? From the looks of it, there seems to be lot of steps to get it working.

    I hope all those who got the 4702QM realize that the model with SLI on Lenovo's website clearly says it comes with the lower voltage CPU??

    Thank you, good sir!

    Just ran 3Dmark with new Nvidia drivers.

    ICE STORM 79117
    CLOUD GATE 11744
    FIRE STRIKE 3118

    So definitely increasing.

    So when you put the Ultrabay attachment back in, does the driver have to be uninstalled every time or what? Or does iGPU option just not show up when the Second 750M is inserted?

    Does Optimus auto switching work when on single 750M?

    Do you or does anyone else know what adapter the Fry's model that has both BD and SLI Ultrabay attachment uses? I want to get Lenovo to match that model with my warranty exchange for my Y570 that 've already had to exchange once because it Windows would give a bluescreen after the boot animation,

    I don't know for sure, but if it includes the ultrabay graphics, it most likely will come with the high power adapter. Currently, you can't buy the Blu Ray ultrabay separately from Lenovo, so you probably won't be able to get an exact match.
