Re: Lenovo Y480 Review

They're all 640M LE, there's no other option right now.

Did you get your y480 with 640M? I got mine with 640M LE. :smileysad:


How long have you had your Y480?  I've noticed that when it was first listed, the card was described as the 640m (they added the LE last week I think).  It seems that some owners were able to get refunds or exchanges to other machines based on the "apparent misunderstanding."

Re: Lenovo Y480 Review

Please check my Diablo III mini-review for Y480, I have the 1TB+SSD model.

As of this morning Lenovo has removed the LE designation from their listing page:

http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:category.det...

 

However, the PDF spec sheet (naturally) is unchanged:

 

http://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/pdf/system_data/y480_tech_specs.pdf

 

As always, we'll have to wait for a lucky new Y480 owner to confirm if it really is the true 640m -- and if it's Kepler, even better!

Re: Lenovo Y480 Review

I ordered one  for my son (he's going out to college) two weeks ago, and despite inumerous calls to a so called supervisor, so far I don't have a shipping date set for it.

 

I am guessing that this delay has something to do with the Video Graphics specs change. 

 

I'll post the chipset when I get it.

Awesome, thanks!  Drinks on me if the "LE" is really gone.  :smileyhappy:

Matt;

 

I'm counting on the drinks. Lol

 

NVidia's website lists the Y480 as a GT640M laptop, not LE. I am guessing again that they are done with the LE..

Re: Lenovo Y480 Review

I also ordered mine 2 weeks ago and it is set to arrive tomorrow. Unfortunately I'm expecting the 640m le. If it's true they are dropping the le, do you think it's possible I can exchange mine for the newer model?

Devon64327;

 

I am an IT consultant and always recommend Lenovo to my customers. One of the reasons I recommend them is their excellent support. If you really get the le version, give them  a call and explain the issue. This is your best bet.

 

Please post what you get.

 

Regards.

Re: Lenovo Y480 Review

The laptop is great. The backlit keyboard is the best I ever used and performance with a SSD is amazing. Only thing to know is you can't play games on battery (see this thread http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-and-Z-series/Y480-Slow-smooth-graphics-on-battery/td-p/765... ).
