Lenovo IdeaPad Y480 (20934EU) Notebook Intel Core i5 3210M (2.50GHz) 6GB Memory 750GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M LE 14.0" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • Intel Core i5 3210M (2.50GHz)
  • 6GB Memory 750GB HDD
  • NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M LE
  • 1366 x 768
  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • DVD±R/RW

Pros:

600 bucks for an Ivy bridge Core I5 and a dedicated Nvidia gpu! Great size, makes it very easy for me to take to work everyday. Backlit keyboard will make most happy, though I've yet to find a notebook whose screen didnt give off enough light to see the keyboard.

Cons:

5400rpm HDD is definitely the weak link. A quality ssd will make a huge difference. Also after extensive research and an hour on the phone with Lenovo's tech support, I was able to verify that this laptop indeed is equipped with the much slower GT 640m LE 1 GB GDDR5 with 96 shaders. It would have been nicer to have the Gt 640m or even the GT 640m LE with the 384 shaders. I knew this before I purchased it, but would have gladly paid the extra premium for the real GT 640 or even the 650m.

Other Thoughts:

Newer Y480 is available through Lenovo with an i7 and the GT 650m. Already bought mine, but wish I would have seen the newer one sooner.

People keep complaining about the resolution of 1366x768, but frankly the res is perfect for a 14" screen. After all most 15.6" notebooks have the same native res. It also helps the slower 640m LE keep up with newer games.
