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.
The less expensive unit has a 14-inch 1366x768 LED display, an Intel Core i3-330M 2.13GHz processor and integrated graphics, 4GB of DDR3 1066MHz RAM, a 320GB 5400RPM HDD, and a DVD burner. For an extra $200, the Y460 comes with a Core i5-520M 2.40GHz, a 1GB Radeon HD 5650, and 500GB of storage.
Connectivity looks equal across the board and includes 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, four USB ports (one eSATA combo), an ExpressCard slot, a six-in-one card reader, HDMI and VGA-out. Both systems also carry a 1.3MP webcam, a six-cell battery, and run Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
