Lenovo's first Ivy Bridge laptop now for sale in the U.S.
A few weeks ago, Lenovo, now the second largest Windows PC manufacturer, announced their Thinkpad lineup. Online orders remain on hold, and only review units are out in the wild. In the mean time, the Chinese company introduced a new Y-series lineup, the Y480.
The entire Ideapad Y480 lineup contains a 3rd Generation Intel i7-3610QM processor, NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M 2 GB graphics processor, 8 GB of DDR3 memory, 1366x768 screen resolution tacked in a 14-inch chassis (111.94 ppi), Bluetooth 4.0, 720p webcam, and operating under Windows 7 Home Premium. There are few configurable options such as a 500GB/1TB hard drive, 1 TB hard drive and 32 GB SSD hybrid, and a choice between a DVD or Blu-Ray disc player.
Lenovo, and other PC manufacturers, continue to sell notebooks with 2nd Generation Intel processors. HP, the best-selling Windows PC manufacturer, also led the line selling PCs with 3rd Generation Intel processors earlier this month with their DV6 and DV7 notebooks. Other manufacturers, such as Dell, also released 3rd generation Intel-powered processors, but will only start shipping next month.
