Geek deals Lenovo IdeaPad Y460p notebook starts at 549

first_imgMid-range laptops are a little tricky. So often these days we see bargain basement machines that are barely equipped to run the latest software, much less run it well. Then the offerings tend to jump up to higher end systems with pricey add-ons like Core i7 CPUs and Blu-ray drives. Today’s deal defines the mid-range segment rather well.Lenovo‘s IdeaPad Y Series have always offered a good bang for your buck, with a system design and overall experience that you don’t get from some of the less expensive bargain brands (*cough* Acer *cough*). The Y460p, a prior generation chassis upfitted with Sandy Bridge processors, has taken second seat to the newly designed Y470 despite sharing many similarities. It looks like Lenovo is ready to start clearing out the Y460p models and has taken a rather nicely spec’d model down to an exceptional price.This system does only come with a Core i3 processor, so you don’t get the additional clock speed possible with Turbo Boost in a Core i5 or i7, but its performance is plenty for most users. The blandness ends there, thanks to a strong outfitting with AMD Radeon HD 6550M 1GB graphics, 6GB of DDR3 RAM, a 500GB hard drive, and Bluetooth. These specs are certainly not unheard of in many mid-range machines, but the fact that you can get one of these sent to your door for $549 is indeed rather impressive.Lenovo’s tradition of excellent keyboards also carries over and the little details aren’t forgotten either. All Y460p’s have a 6-in-1 card reader, three USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA/USB combo port, and HDMI output. The massive $400 coupon, combined with $100 instant savings, on this well equipped machine expires after limited uses, so be sure to head over and grab this bargain before it slips away.Visit LogicBuy for the Lenovo IdeaPad Y460plast_img read more
