Idepad Y450 Upgradeable Configuration ?

Hi all,

im planning to buy a new Y450, but all available models in lenovo US site offer configurations with 800 MHz and 667 MHz FSB Processors, i was wondering myself if bought an 667 MHz basic configuration with 2GB of DDR3 memory ( 418932U )  could i upgrade processor to an newer Socket P Processor with 1066 MHz of FSB and 6 MB of Shared Cache and even upgrade memory to 8 GB or more?

where can i get more info about possible Y450 model upgrades?

Why china website Y450 base models has "better" basic configurations available on their site, are the same Y450 models?

Thanks in advance,
Rafael.

Hi i find that lenovo marketing is so stupid as to releasing only the T6600 processor for the new Y450 laptop.

Why in the world would people go buy a new laptop equip with an old processor.

You should at least make the P8600 processor available for customer to choose. Rather then having it all the T6600 processor which not only use more power and run slower.

cinsn, since when are Penryn-2M 45nm-technology based processors with 2mb of cache and 800 fsb are treated as old? You made my day.

 Please be carefull in your words - every processor has it's benefits. For example, price here - P8600 will cost more.

Well I think the T6600 is not bad processor but if they use the P7450 should be better, the Thermal Design Power (W) of the T6600 is 35W compare to the P7450 & P8600 which is 25W but yea price will be different if the P8600 or P7450 is used but I think u got the option to change ot it right?? Is at the brouchers pdf file they got 3 kinds of processors
