IdeaPad Y series

I know everyone has a certain spec/features of laptops in mind that they want and this won't cater to all of you out there, so I'm just trying to give you all some options. For those of you trying to find a cheap, well built laptop for gaming (or for business), Lenovo Outlet has a 25% off sale very often on refurb, open box, and some brand new laptops. Without this 25% off, everything is overpriced. They are also offering free two day and or ground shipping!

The IdeaPad Y series are their gaming laptops, so to speak, with 5650s and 5730 for 14" and 15.6" laptops respectively. Configurations and conditions of laptops will vary and they restock daily, maybe even twice, but in small quantities of many configurations.

Every once in a while, there are gems in the rough. I got my brand new Y460 with a i5 460M and 5650 for $540 and free two day shipping. Before tax though, sadly. Another time, there was a Y560 (refurb) with a i5 560M and 5730 for $475. The i7 quad laptops are in stock most of the time though.

There might also be good deals on ThinkPads or their Essentials line, but I've only looked through the IdeaPad Y series.

I would like this to stay on OCN because the stock for each configuration is very low (1-3 most of the time), and I'd like this to benefit fellow OCNers and lurkers.
