Deal Of The Day: Large Savings On Lenovo’s IdeaPad Y570

By David Ponce

The successor to the Y560, Lenovo’s IdeaPad Y570 is an attractive looking laptop that comes in a metallic coating, is 0.86 inches thin at its thickest point and has competent integrated JBL speakers. When it was first announced, it was touted as being able to “boot faster than a MacBook Air” and this is indeed possible if equipped with the optional 32GB or 64GB SSD drive (to hold the operating system) and can be paired with a regular drive of up to 1TB. So not only can you boot faster than a MacBook Air (10s vs. 15s) but you can also store large amounts of data on it as well; you can have your cake and eat it too. Interestingly, the Y570 also comes equipped with a 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M graphics card which provides ample gaming prowess. Processors range from the Core i3 to Core i7 and RAM up to 8GB.

There are several specials going on depending on configuration. All feature between $250 and $400 in instant savings, while each being paired with a 20% off coupon. This means the base Core i3 model will set you back $639 after about $400 in savings while the top-end Core i7 model will be $999 after about $600 in savings. And yes, that would be for the one with the SSD drive.

Deal Of The Day: $539 For A Dual-Core 15.6 Inch Laptop From Lenovo

By David Ponce

It’s easy to get caught up in a game of one-upsmanship in the consumer electronics world. This manufacturer’s laptop is thinner than everyone’s. This one’s battery lasts longer than everybody. But there are folks out there looking for a good deal everyday and the Lenovo Essentials G575 15.6-inch Dual-core AMD Fusion Laptop (long name!) is pretty darn good. Coming in at roughly the same price as any offering from the netbook craze (remember that?), you get instead a full-fledged higher-end Lenovo G575 that packs a dual-core AMD E-350 processor, “1.6GHz dual core, Win 7 Home 64, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6310 graphics, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 15.6-inch 1366×768 glossy LCD, 750GB 5400rpm HDD, DVD burner, 6-cell battery, b/g/n WiFi, and 1 year warranty.”

[CES 2010] Lenovo Skylight Smartbook Is Smart, Stylish

DSC_3269

By Evan Ackerman

When someone (like Lenovo) says that they’ve got this laptop that runs on a cell phone processor, and that they’re calling it a “Smartbook,” your first thought might be a mental eyeroll. So it helps when someone (like Lenovo) plies you with alcohol and desserts, and then points out that it’s really a pretty decent idea. The Lenovo Skylight has a 10 inch screen, a full size keyboard, and integrated WiFi and 3G, all of which you’d expect in a mobile connectivity netbook. It’s missing three things that you’d also expect: a 2.5″ hard drive, Windows, and an Atom processor, and Windows. Instead, it uses a couple microSD cards (one of which is swappable), a customized version of Linux, and a 1ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 512mb of RAM that’s strong enough to play back 720p HD video. Put that all together and you get a lot of functionality coupled with a 10 hour battery life (think 6-8 in normal use) in a wicked skinny package that weighs less than 2 pounds.

The OS is heavily focused on web integration, as you’d expect from such a low power computer. One of the most interesting physical features is a long and skinny USB accessory slot… They had a 16 gig USB drive in there, but hypothetically, you can plug anything you want into it, like some extra media buttons or maybe a webcam or something.

Lenovo is still working on their customized operating system, video playback, and other stuff like the touchpad. Everything should be ready to go by April of this year, when you’ll be able to pick the Skylight up for, uh, $499. Another option will be to buy it along with a 3G data plan from AT&T, which will likely subsidize it quite a bit, but still, for what it is, that seems like a lot of money… Even if it is so little and roundish and cute.
