  1. Lenovo is now selling its IdeaPad Y460 notebook, and orders placed today will ship within 13 days. Originally introduced at CES in January, the system has a nifty looking geometrical pattern sketched on the exterior. Lenovo offers two base models, the $999 Y460 - 063347U, and the $1,199 Y460 - 063346U.

    I have never had any problems with Lenovo and have been using the Thinkpad T60 for about 4 years now. Seeing this may make me want to upgade..and the core i5 option seems to be calling my name. Just don't know if I want to spend that money yet.

    I have to say I love the pattern on the outside, just looks awesome.

    I've heard Lenovo's Ideapad line isn't exactly on par in terms of quality with their Thinkpad line.

    Regardless, these new Ideapad laptops don't look too bad. No doubt they need to be like that to compete against Dell and HP.

    This is one neat looking notebook. Reasonable price range for quality specs.

    That really is a funky pattern, the Y460 is pretty reasonably priced.

    I love the design, the orange outline adds a nice touch. Glad Lenovo stepped up their game.

    Loaded laptop there! I would go for the HD 5650 model for sure, that's a really good mobile GPU atm for the price. Great styling (love the orange accents), DDR3 RAM, 14" LED display (great for portability), and the new 1156 Intel platform. <3

    I believe Gateway has a similar model called the nv5909 or something that has the HD 5650 with the i3 330M for $799. But is the quality still the same? I have old IBM Thinkpad 770X ($2000 laptop from 1998) and I love it and I'm using right now, moderately slow but reliable and built like REAL TANK. Pentium II wooo woot!

    The body looks awesome. Too bad there's not as many customization options as there is for Thinkpad.

    It looks a little girly with the patterns and orange trim and all... not nearly as butch (or as rugged probably) as their Thinkpads.

    Ewwww! Apparently from previous comments, I'm the only one who thinks that the pattern on the cover is ugly... I'd look for another laptop if I was looking for a new one.

    But this is more affordable (well not for me:<) than other ranges of laptops on the market. And it is suitable for everyday normal purposes. In our school, we used Lenovo on our desktops. The cpu's that Lenovo provides are small but faster (approx12"x6" size of cpu). I have no experiece yet on lenovo's laptop performances.
     
  22. Ewww, what an ugly laptop!
    Also, I would never consider getting a Lenovo which doesn't have a trackpoint.

    It is remarkable and the time at which the laptop can run on battery power, which in the model with the Core i3 and Intel GMA HD is 4 hours and in the version with two video cards and Core i5 is 3 hours.

    I will be waiting for USB3 and SATA3 to be included in laptops by default before I buy another laptop. Personally not a fan of the look of this laptop but I wouldn't go as far as saying it is ugly. I think alienware laptops are ugly but this is just not attractive.
