Y410p/Y510p Why 170W AC?

I know that there is no SLI option for the y410p yet, but just in case they ever release it or I end up buying a y510p SLI, why do you need the 170W AC? What happens if you stay with the 120W or what happens if you are in SLI but on battery mode? ALso what happens if you are not in SLI yet you are in battery mode? The laptop could get damaged or something? I don't understand the reasoning for getting the 170W AC, thanks Smiley Happy

hi DemonicLink,


Thanks for Posting!



SLI Requires the 170W AC Power

This Article may help.


If your system does not have a Graphics in the Ultrabay, a 120W AC will not be a problem.

Re: Y410p/Y510p Why 170W AC?

So I ordered the other graphics card off lenovos site the 755m one and ive been reading about it and some people say it works fine with the charger I already have and some say that I need to get the 170w charger, Does any one know for sure? Also does any one know where I could order one for some what cheap if I need it? There was the one for $30 on the deals section (0C22240) but when I went to buy and add it in my cart it says "Unfortunately your order cannot be completed at this time. To assist you more quickly, please contact
us at 1-855-2-LENOVO (1-855-253-6686). Please note Code INO and provide if requested." but its still posted up for sale so im confused
