    where does the 2nd HDD go in the s430 ?
    does that mean losing the disk drive ?

    either way i would be cool with that, really just hoping
    this has a proper gpu, and throw money at it.

    Y480 Release time determined: presumably with 650M.

    May 26th. China. You can get your paws on it in June I believe.

    ????????. The World. ???????????

    Possibly with two different configurations:
    Intel IVB + Nvidia 650M
    OR
    AMD Trinity + Radeon 7XXXM of some sort.

    Half a month people :3 (chinese source:)

    and another thread on the same site.

    All he says is that someone on the internet released this information. We can cross our fingers that it's true and the Y480 really will get a 650M version and a Trinity version, but this guy's no more reliable than anyone else. Besides, is there any history of Lenovo's Y-series using AMD processors? If not, I'm skeptical that they'll release the same machine with two different platforms. At least not if both versions have the same name.

    And there are no real dates, just that the Intel version will "hit the market" mid-May and be sold in the last third of the month, and the AMD version will hit the market late May and be sold in the first week or so of June. Once again, no better source than "a guy on the internet."

    Thanks for starting this thread. I'm looking for a 14 inch ultrabook to play diablo 3 with. I was going to wait till Ivy Bridge comes out in some of these books but who knows when that will happen.

    Gotcha - you said there was another thread but didn't link it. I'm not a native Chinese speaker/reader so it can be a real bear to get through stuff like that, and even harder to search for it.

    Still, it's worth remembering that most pre-release specs and information like this tends to come from Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and Taiwanese sites like this, and a significant portion of it is either wrong or completely full of it, so any pre-release information that doesn't come directly from the manufacturer should be taken with a grain of salt.

    Only if they fix the micro stutters. I turned off Xfire on my Llano machine because an overclocked 6750m was near performance of a stock clocked 6750m + crossfire 6620G. Xfire is good in theory, but execution so far is horrible. I honestly wouldn't even look at Crossfire performance.
