The listing is still not quite correct. For the dual graphics model, GT750M should be listed as the "optical drive," while currently there is nothing listed under optical drive.

In my opinion, I think the GT 750M shouldn't be listed on the optical drive section since that section is reserved for "Optical disc drive," and clearly the GT750M is not an ODD.

 

I would prefer for Lenovo to rename the optical drive section to "Ultrabay (TM)" and then they can put "Nvidia GT 750M 2GB Ultrabay"

Well on the y500, they do know how to do it, its just funny how they can't do the same thing here...

Guess they have to do another "overnight" change :/ Life so hard :/

David,

 

Yes.  The web is staged and then updated overnight.  Yesterday, changes were being entered and the 720 info was removed and it looks like it passed through the null info.  I know the correct 750 info has been set up to go back in - just an issue of timing.

All,

 

Our sales team is sending a proactive email to all customers who purchased the 59370006 model direct from Lenovo.  If you have further questions after receiving the email, I would encourage you to contact sales directly.  

 

Best regards,

 

Mark

So, this laptop is coming with the 4702 now, and it is in fact dual 750m's...not a 750m and 720m? I just want to make sure. 

 

I was really leaning towards this laptop. I've been a long time Asus guy...and thought I was about to break that trend when I found this laptop. This thread is making me seriously think twice. I hope that Lenovo is going to take this thread seriously... I'm only 1 person potentially walking away. You get 20 people who read this thread and decide not to buy, your talking about +/- $230,000 loss.

 

I fell in love with this laptop... Hopefully Lenovo gets things straightened out...

Just a question. Are the sales people changing the information because you mentioned a bunch of people on the forum are questioning it and saying it's incorrect. Or are you guys verifying for sure? Just seems like you were so quick to change the site. Hope everyone did their homework. 

 

For all we know, the card in the ultrabay is a 720m...hence the issues people are having with SLI being blamed on "bad" drivers...

I am pretty sure the one in ultrabay is 750m. SLI requires two GPUs to be identical.

Yeah. I was pretty sure they would need to be the same card. I've seen a lot of reviews and threads of people complaining about bad drivers. Didn't know if maybe It's because the cards were different. 

 

Any chance you could post a screenshot with gpuz or something thats lists both cards? 

 

Aside from the misinformation, how do you like the laptop? Performance? Build quality? Sound quality? Screen quality?
