    I emailed them, as I had a similar issue. Ordered on may 30th w/ an estimated ship date of the June 9th. As of June 8th the estimated ship date was June 30th.

    This was their response:

    Dear ***,


    Thank you for contacting Lenovo.



    We apologize. As of now we also have the same date (the week of 30th of June). Please note that the given date is an estimated ship date which has been generated by the system and it is not entirely correct. Right now the Hard Drive is in backlog. I would request you to contact us again after 2 business days and we hope get a better update by then.

    Late shipping has been a consistent problem with Lenovo in my experience. It happened with my Thinkpad T61 back in 2008 -- I waited almost two months.

    I called a bunch of times and was given a free 3 year next-business day warranty as compensation.

    They clearly have some supply chain problems unfortunately.

    The x120e reportedly has such short supplies that it's no longer available. Might* be back in July a sales rep. said. :rolleyes:

    This is what has me concerned. Dj1001 claims to have been getting 21 fps average with 0xAA and 0xAF while playing Black Ops Campaign, on his i7 Y570. Now I apologize for seeming to speak for him, but I'm really curious if other Y570 owners are having similar experiences (and I'm sure he's really curious as well). Like I said earlier, I like the Y470 for various reasons, but am attracted to the 555M on the Y570. Can't see myself making a decision and ordering until I know what's going on.

    To Dj1001: Have you spoken with Lenovo or in any way figured out more about what your problem is? Obviously, from what ruhtraeel reports your Y570 is really underperforming. (Not trying to male you feel bad... just checking to see if anything's been figured out.)

    I purchased the Y470 on June 1st and it has shipped as of June 7th. The expected delivery date was listed as June 14th, though that has since disappeared. This will be my first Laptop. I prefer desktop computers but was in need of something mobile for school. The Y470 seemed to have some nice specs at a nice price. I will post impressions when I get the laptop on Tuesday Hopefully.

    I will post the basic 3d mark scores if anyone is interested, than get rid of the bloatware and do some optimizations and see what else I get. The newest Pc Game I have is Starcraft 2 so I will post my impressions on how well that runs on the laptop as well.

    Are you guys getting the 2yr warranties or just sticking with the basic? My possible y470 i5 costs $27 for the extra year if i get it, can't decide.

    Hey ekokinex! How was your Y570? Mind doing a full review? Searching for reviews anywhere and still cannot find one. And how was the performance of your games? Thank you so much!

    Notebookcheck posted a new review yesterday of the Y560p (you can check it out on their homepage), and they gave a terrible review the screen. I mean, really bad. Very low contrast, too reflective screen, lousy viewing angles, unusable outdoors.

    So, the obvious question is: How do Y470 and Y570 owners feel about their screens? Anyone able to compare with the Y460 or Y560?

    My y570 is on the truck for delivery today. Hopefully I'll be home in time to receive it. I'll post my impressions as soon as I can.

    @fractl, if it makes you feel any better I would never have purchased the y560 (any model) simply because the build on those particular models are sub-par (imo). Most people have been saying the 570 screen is about average.

    One more question, owner of Y470 can you tell what is the material of the outside top cover, the Dusk Black cover? Plastic, alumi ?
    How about the inside material, the palm rest area? thanks.
