Lenovo's Ivy Bridge Infused Laptop Goes Up for Preorder on Amazon

The latest round of leaked slides suggest that come hell or high water, Intel will release its Ivy Bridge platform at the end of April. That's a little over a month and a half from now, or just a little further than right around the corner depending on how you want to look at it, but if you're feeling particularly anxious, you can preorder an Ivy Bridge system right this very second.

Lenovo's IdeaPad Y480 laptop with Ivy Bridge inside is now available to preorder on Amazon's website for $1,000. Specs include:
  • Intel core i7 3610QM processor clocked at 2.3GHz
  • 8GB of DDR3 memory
  • Nvidia GT630M graphics
  • 750GB hard drive (5400 RPM)
  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

The system also features a pair of USB 2.0 ports, a 14-inch screen, two 1.5W JBL speakers, 3.5 hours of battery life, and a frame that measures 13.6 inches (L) x 9.4 inches (W) x 1.3 inches (H). Not too shabby for a $1,000 system, though the slow spinning hard drive is nothing to write home about. If it were us, we'd wait until the next round of Ultrabook models show up before committing to purchase and Ivy Bridge system.

I'm waiting to see the Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks as well, otherwise this sounds good for $1000. A price drop on the Sandy Bridge Ultrabooks should be coming so if OEM's decide to release the new Ultrabooks and drop prices on the old ones around the same time then I would pick up the Zenbook UX31. Unless of course I can get a sweet new ivy bridge ultrabook for under the $1000 price point!! Like that will ever happen :(

Very nice and a great price for being the newest tech. One more year before I get a new laptop from work :P

That kind of price for that kind of technology is reasonable. Levono has done it again!

«Newest tech» ? Disappointing that Lenovo decided to release this machine with USB 2.0 rather than, e g, USB 3.0 ports. Ivy-Bridge fans would seem best advised to wait a little longer for a system which offers better integration of the most modern technical advances....
