    OK now is all clear for everyone:
    Official data sheet: https://www.google.it/url?sa=t&amp...C&usg=AFQjCNHIw9ZbWtTyMsjLQOt5f2qTONt1UQ

    Optional GPU rispectivly:

    R7 270m ===> for y40
    860m ===> for y5
    Both 4gb vram

    Problem is: I suppose r7 with overclock will ne quite better 860m overclocked

    Sooo, a rebrand of the 8850M?

    AMD Radeon HD 8850M - NotebookCheck.net Tech

    Still weaker than the *DDR3* 750M, minus the awesome kepler overclocking. Laaame.

    Ok so just to be clear... r7 270 is MUCH WEAKER than 860m...it will be about on par with the 850m MAYBE if we are lucky. R7 270 is not an enthusiast card.

    If everyone looks at the official specs that lenovo released it's obvious that somehow they are lying to us.

    Line 2 in the specsheet says DVD Drive....
    Either the specs they released are wrong (wich i doubt) OR the CES laptop is not the final product as it clearly did not have a dvd drive...just a prototype that will never go into mass production

    I knew it was too good to be true :(

    Does the y40/y50 have better build quality than their y410/y510p predecessors?

    Probably not, but don't take my word for it.

    As for the DVD, don't give up hope, i have seen dvd drives in laptops thinner than the Y50.

    I hope , DVD drive or no, that the Y40/Y50 has the same look from CES.

    That's not the point...i actually like the fact that it has a dvd drive...that way i can swap in a caddy and ssd.

    The idea is that a dvd drive means a whole different chasis. If they change something this major then all the suppositions we are making on this thread based on what we saw at CES are for nothing. It will be a whole different machine then the one we saw at CES.

    If its a different chassis that'll be definitely disappointing, because of the cool looks of the laptop that was shown at CES. Not to mention that's the picture they're showing on the Lenovo site too, so it'll definitely make for some not-so-happy potential customers if they pull a "bait and switch".
