    • With USB 3.0......eSATA....and mSATA capability !! <<<< (wonder why most don't include all 3 connetions)

      Vely tempting!

      As to the battery life....I suppose the discrete GPU can be turned "off" to increase longetivity?

    • Well. i may pull the trigger on this one. I just had my acer stolen recently. the same timelinex as is on sale for insanely cheap right now.

      While I very much liked that laptop, this one seems much stronger. I just worry about losing some battery life and weight savings

    • Battery life with this notebook should be pretty good. The GPU can be switched from the discrete 7690M to an integrated one when necessary.

    • I almost buy this every time this deal comes up, but can never deal with the prospect of possibly getting a bilingual keyboard...

    • What keyboard does this laptop come with? English or bilingual?

    • Another alternative is ASUS A53SD-TS71 Laptop Computer - Intel Core i7-2670QM 2.20GHz, 4GB DDR3, 750GB HDD, DVDRW, 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 610M, 15.6" Display, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, Black, selling at Tigerdirect.ca for 699.00.

      the asus has less ram, 4Gb only, but it has a 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 610M and 15.6" display, and it is $50 cheaper.

      The Asus is also 1lb heavier, a little wider, a little deeper, and up to 2x thicker (according to the specs). I assume most people reading this thread would be looking for a 14" laptop....

      It's easy to find 15.6" lappies with i7.
      This is a 14". Decent deal for the casual gamer who doesn't want to lug a brick around.

      The 610M is vastly inferior to the 7690 that comes with the 470P...it's only on par with the 520M: http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-...M.63759.0.html

    • Hey guys, I'm typing this from my 470p as we speak!

      Bought it about 2 months ago @799 (had it for a month now) and this thing is really a beast, runs most things I've thrown at it on high settings at its native res, even BF3 online plays at over 30fps with some tweaking (setting stuff to medium, but other stuff is high/ultra even). Really a great laptop, I'd rank it up there with laptops costing 1100+ easily...

      Although my laptop was stated to come with a bilingual keyboard when I received it it was standard US (and I'm even from Quebec) so chances are you will get a normal keyboard and not the bilingual one (although obviously I can't guarantee).

      As for questions of battery life, I've only used the battery periodically when I first got it, seems that it lasts about 4-5 hours for normal use (not gaming); to be honest, I've removed the battery since and use it kind of like a desktop, including setting the graphics to 'high performance' and not using the switchable interface (although when I tried it initially it seemed pretty flawless).

      If you are looking for a laptop that has great size + performance I can't recommend this enough, even the 5400rpm isn't really that bad, its hardly noticeable compared to the 7200rpm (my friend bought the Y570 which has a geforce 555m and 500gb 7200rpm --> i'd say he boots about 4-5 seconds quicker, but my performance seems to be better for gaming).

      Just FYI, for anyone looking to use it for games:
      BF3 - Mixed settings (shadows and AA down, but other graphics on high runs at >30fps online)
      Starcraft 2 - Everything ultra except shadows (very CPU intensive so to maintain FPS in online games I turn shadows low) - always runs beautifully. 3v3 and 4v4 online
      Diablo 3 beta - Everything on highest
      Crysis - Everything on high except AA and shadows turned down, runs great
      Skyrim - runs on high @ 30fps
      Kingdoms of Amalur - runs high @ 30 fps

      Just remember the screen resolution is 1368 x 768, a lot of people tend to complain about this but honestly when playing these games they look absolutely fantastic on the 14'' display. Speakers are great too!!!

      Anyways as you can probably tell I'm super happy with it!

    • Anyone knows if the palm rest area is aluminum or some cheap "silver paint" that will eventually wear of (SONY had big paint problems on some colorful laptops of theirs )

      Thanks.

    • Thanks OP, ordered.

      I called as well to see about the keyboard. they said the thinkpad/ideapad, whichever this one is, always comes as a bilingual keyboard.

      I said to make a note 'if they could' to slap on a US one

    • Serious question: Aren't the warranties far worse when purchasing through EPP?
      Is this true? I also want to know. The difference in price is small though. How do you claim the warranties when you purchase through EPP, are there any difference from when you purchase without EPP? Sorry, I have never ordered anything from Lenovo through EPP before. Thanks.

      I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E420 that I bought last summer and it has a US keyboard.
