    and the most important thing,...
    3dmark 11 result for gt650m sli
    142025ggrkh1uu3ublfks3.jpg
    the score would be higher if there is driver for gt650m sli released by nvdia
    i am still using v306.00 which came from machine itself,and also this is the latest driver from lenovo

    so far only few game tested by me in sli(all those game tested by me was supported by sli)
    crysis 2 in all ultra setting in 1920*1080 ,i get around 30-40 fps (sli)
    battefield 3 in all ultra setting in 1920*1080,i get around 30-42fps(sli)
    cod black ops 2 in all ultra setting in 1920*1080, i get around 45-55fps(sli)

    and this is some game tested by me in single gt650m (those game are not supported by sli)
    assasins creed 3 in high setting 1920*1080 ,35-42 fps
    need for speed most wanted hight setting 1920*1080 19-27 fps

    END
    this machine is great for me,and the jbl speaker is awesome ~

    Not too shabby, looking forward to getting my Y400 sometime next week or the week after depending how Lenovo is dealing with manufacturing and shipping.

    I wonder when they'll start selling the GT 650m to enable SLI because i had no such option when purchasing.

    thanks. +1 repped :)

    could you comment on the build quality also? especially when compared to thinkpad T series and/or lenovo Y480/580?

    and how is the hinge? is it fairly tight and sturdy?

    thanks
