Re: Lenovo Y480 Review

They're all 640M LE, there's no other option right now.

Did you get your y480 with 640M? I got mine with 640M LE. Smiley Sad


How long have you had your Y480?  I've noticed that when it was first listed, the card was described as the 640m (they added the LE last week I think).  It seems that some owners were able to get refunds or exchanges to other machines based on the "apparent misunderstanding."

Re: Lenovo Y480 Review

Please check my Diablo III mini-review for Y480, I have the 1TB+SSD model.

As of this morning Lenovo has removed the LE designation from their listing page:

http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:category.det...

 

However, the PDF spec sheet (naturally) is unchanged:

 

http://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/pdf/system_data/y480_tech_specs.pdf

 

As always, we'll have to wait for a lucky new Y480 owner to confirm if it really is the true 640m -- and if it's Kepler, even better!

Re: Lenovo Y480 Review

I ordered one  for my son (he's going out to college) two weeks ago, and despite inumerous calls to a so called supervisor, so far I don't have a shipping date set for it.

 

I am guessing that this delay has something to do with the Video Graphics specs change. 

 

I'll post the chipset when I get it.

Awesome, thanks!  Drinks on me if the "LE" is really gone.  Smiley Happy

Matt;

 

I'm counting on the drinks. Lol

 

NVidia's website lists the Y480 as a GT640M laptop, not LE. I am guessing again that they are done with the LE..

Re: Lenovo Y480 Review

I also ordered mine 2 weeks ago and it is set to arrive tomorrow. Unfortunately I'm expecting the 640m le. If it's true they are dropping the le, do you think it's possible I can exchange mine for the newer model?

Devon64327;

 

I am an IT consultant and always recommend Lenovo to my customers. One of the reasons I recommend them is their excellent support. If you really get the le version, give them  a call and explain the issue. This is your best bet.

 

Please post what you get.

 

Regards.

Re: Lenovo Y480 Review

The laptop is great. The backlit keyboard is the best I ever used and performance with a SSD is amazing. Only thing to know is you can't play games on battery (see this thread http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-and-Z-series/Y480-Slow-smooth-graphics-on-battery/td-p/765... ).
