IdeaPad Y580 - Windows 8 - Enhanced Experience, Rapid boot, Boot Shield for Windows 8???

Hi , 

Good day, 

I would like to ask for your advice on this matter. 

 

I am seriously considering to purchase a Lenovo Idea Pad Y580 which comes preinstalled with Windows 8. 

The full product name is: 

Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 (59349463)

 

However, this laptop is shipped with Windows 8 (NOT Windows 7). Hence, please advice whether Lenovo Enhanced Experience + rapid boot technology + boot shield will be incorporated into this laptop (for Windows 8)?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

All of these softwares would come preinstalled on windows 8 with any lenovo laptop implying that you have a msata ssd with a capacity more than 16 gb installed on your laptop.

Thanks for the quick reply. However, when i checked in the product catalog, there is no SSD. Only Hard Disk Drive.

Other forumers opined that since Windows 8 is already quite lean in its performance, hence Lenovo is not extending the enhanced performance package - Rapid Boot, Boot Shield for Windows 8.

It is really confusing...
