The Y410p's can definitely be bought. Not sure about the ultrabay additional components as I haven't actually looked into purchasing yet.

More customization would be nice, like more than 24GB caching drives, and/or actually named SSD models. The general rule of thumb is that if the specific part isn't mentioned, it's whatever happened to be cheapest to buy in bulk that month, which will always be the worst performing POS on the market.
Also, a pretty easy way to tell is the fact that it's a 24GB SSD. No hybrid drives have that much NAND.
Of note: I read somewhere that Lenovo is not using the standard Intel SRT/RST caching software. They apparently are using their own proprietary caching software. Don't know why they would bother, but it's corporate warfare, probably just to be able to say that they have it.
