    hi guys i need help right now, i want to buy a new laptop for gaming i think that the lenovo ones are the best for price tag, i7, 1tb hard drive + 16ssd + geforce gt750m dual and other things.

    the lenovo y400 came with a limited 8gb of ram thats enough for gaming? i like the y400 because is more portable and if i bought the graphic card ill have the dvd drive that is included.

    799$ + 229$ for the ultrabay graphic card gt750m sli, i need to know if that card is compatible with the y400 is the same size.

    8GB of ram is more than enough for gaming. Also the lenovo y500 SLI card is not compatible with the y400.

    What makes it incompatible when both are standard laptop ultrabay slots and even uses the same GT750M card already?

    Go for Y500 because you get a much better display with higher gamut screen that is near SRGB coverage and a 1080p display.

    The 750M SLI is N O T compatible with the Y400, currently. Also, as stated above, the Y500 as a 1080p display. Although you may think this is not much of a difference, try hooking it up to a TV. You'll see a huge difference.
