Lenovo Quietly Launches IdeaPad Y470p Laptop with Radeon HD 7690M Graphics

If you're looking for a well equipped laptop sporting AMD's new generation current generation 40nm graphics technology, Lenovo may have exactly what you've been pining for. Lenovo quietly slipped out its IdeaPad Y470p, a 14-inch notebook with an Intel Core i7 2670QM processor (2.2GHz, 6MB cache), 8GB of DDR3-1333 memory, and AMD Radeon HD 7690 graphics with 1GB of video memory. That's a solid foundation, folks.

It also has a 750GB hard drive (5400 RPM), DVD burner, 2MP webcam, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, GbE, HDMI, premium JBL speakers, three USB ports + USB/eSATA combo, 6-in-1 card reader, 6-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit wrapped in a "real metal cover with brushed-metal effect."

The Y470p lists for $1,499 MSRP with a Web price of $1,249. That seems a bit much for a 14-inch laptop, but don't despair if this happens to be your dream laptop, Lenovo currently has it listed for $799 after eCoupon (WKLYDEALSY470P), or about the price of a lower end Ultrabook.

Estimated ship date is February 13, 2012.

the Y470 has an Nvidia 550m graphics card, which is inferior in performance. Maybe you ask yourself why is the Y470p 14'' notebook too? well, the lower the resolution the better gaming performance but at the same time disappointing that Lenovo didn’t also upgrade the Y470p to a higher resolution .

I'm calling overpriced. I could get a better Dell for cheaper, with a higher resolution display (I'm big on 15" 1080p displays).

With the eCoupon, the Y470p seems more acceptable in terms of pricing. I wonder what the battery life is like.
