I love my Ideapad y560, it's been working great for the first day that I've had it.
I'm just a tad bit concerned though, why is the Windows 7 reinstallation disc not included? The serial key sticker is of course still on the bottom of my laptop, so I know it's (mostly) legitimate, although I wouldn't know what to do if something irrepairably bad occured to some important operating system files. Are users expected to download Windows 7 from a torrent network?

Unfortunately, they don't bundle the disks anymore. You'll see a OneKey recovery utility on the notebook which allows you to make your own recovery DVDs.
Truth-be-told, the units are activated with a corporate licensing system. The key on the bottom of the laptop is to serve as a proof-of-purchase, but your notebook's software Windows 7 license probably doesn't match it.
Simply put, you won't need the bottom key with the recovery disks. If you "provide" your own disks (in my case, retail disks), use the one on the bottom.
