Holy Crap...you are right. They lowered the prices as well to account for this change. I bought an 8 gb version back in October so I am sure I will get an 8 gb version, but weird that they are not making 8 gb anymore.

 

Maybe its a limited time offer for the holidays?

 

Someone in the shipping thread said the 8gb are all gone because they ran out.  for now...

 

I don't know if it is all speculation or the truth.  No idea.

I suspct they just ran out of stock on the 8GB verison of the motherboard (the RAM is soldered on) and since the Y2P has been so popular they've just outstripped their supply temporarily. I bet it will be back before very long.

 

As far as disappearing from the store, I suspect someone agressive in sales decided to temporarily hide the 8GB option with the hope that people will buy the 4GB version instead. This way they get to ship and bill the customer in this calendar/fiscal year, where if the customer ordered an 8GB machine that couldn't ship until 2014 then maybe sales would not get credit for it and Mr. agressive would not get as big of a bonus.

 

Or maybe they're nice guys and they don't want anyone being disappointed about not being able to get something before Christmas...

Best Buy seems to offer the i7/8/256 version for shipping once every so often, that's how I got mine. I'd suggest checking their status. I ordered mine on Friday, it was shipped Sunday and delivered Monday.

I online chatted with Lenovo this morning and they said they were temporarily out of the 8Gb. I see Best Buy has them for order and delivery to a store...but only in Silver. I wanted Orange and they told me to check back periodically.

 

I asked if Best Buy bought all their 8Gb's and got no answer.

THey ran out of the part AGAIN. They keep running out of the parts to build them. I have been waiting two months for 2 of them I ordered in October with 512 ssd and 8mg ram. Ridiculous....no estimated ship date that is confirmable again.

They ran out of stock I believe. Should be back soon!
