Y550 glut on Lenovo Outlet

[ Edited ]

Hi all,


I hope I've chosen the right category for this question; if not, kindly relocate it: I'm looking for a laptop for my niece who's going away to college. On the Lenovo Outlet right now, there is an absolute glut of new IdeaPad Y550 systems -- hundreds of them, all in black. The Y550 seems to be well reviewed, and it looks like a nice system, but I'm a bit nervous. Does anyone know -- or can anyone (intelligently) speculate -- as to why so many should be languishing on the Outlet shelves? (edited to add) All systems, or nearly all, have 4GB RAM and Windows 7 Home Premium 32 -- perhaps purchasers canceled these orders for ones with 64-bit Windows?


Thanks for any tips.
