Welcome to the Community, happy to have you here.
The system is not yet available for sale as of the moment and I have only seen the unit on display on CES, I cant give a first hand experience about the unit but, it is one of the unit that I would love to have in my collection together with the Y720. Hopefully I can get one of these by the end of April.

I bought the same configuration 2 weeks ago, first thing was installing a SSD (I used SATA port but M.2 is also available), second thing was installing Diablo 3 Coming from a desktop with an old AMD processor, this notebook was like a breath of fresh air... the wonder! It's fast, it's silent and surprisingly light. Do not expect battery to last more than 2-3 hours, it' a gaming laptop, who needs battery?! I'm happy with it, it runs smoth Metro 2033 maxed out setting, Diablo too.
One piece of advice, please do not settle for less than 1050Ti, the difference is notable.
