    A quick glance over Lenovo's web shop will confirm the availability of a new IdeaPad laptop, a model called Y470p which features a 14-inch (1366 x 768) LED-backlit display, a 2.2 GHz Core i7-2670QM processor, 8 GB of RAM, an AMD Radeon HD 7690 1GB discrete graphics card, a 750 GB hard drive, and a DVD writer.

    Lenovo's mobile PC also has JBL stereo speakers, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, a 2.0 megapixel webcam, a HDMI output, and a 6-cell battery. The IdeaPad Y470p is backed by a one-year warranty and costs as low as $799 (thanks to a special offer).

    I have the y570, the larger brother of this one, and I can't speak highly enough about it!

    I REALLY like the look of this - Looks very business like and professional. but underneath it has what it takes to play some L4D on the train home from a day at the office!!

    And why is that? Is it a good product? Are you a mute?

    Too bad AMD doesn't appear to be releasing any 28nm notebook GPUs anytime soon from what I have heard. The 7690 is just a 40nm Whistler chip. :(

    Great specs for the price, though I would wish for a better screen resolution.
