Lenovo specs out Y560p and Y460p
As a minor element of its IdeaPad revamps, Lenovo today detailed the specs of the Y460p and Y560p it previewed last month. They can use the full range of Sandy Bridge chips from the 2.1GHz Core i3 through to the quad 2.5GHz Core i7. Either has the option of a 32GB or 64GB SSD as an OS drive that can dramatically speed up the boot time without sacrificing a primary disk up to 1TB.
They use AMD's new Radeon HD 6000M graphics and can have as much as a 6550M in the 14-inch Y460p and a slightly faster 6570M in the larger, 15.6-inch Y560p. Either can carry as much as 8GB of RAM and a Blu-ray drive, and like the Yx70 series have JBL speakers. Battery life is short at three to 3.5 hours.
Lenovo hasn't said when the Y460p and Y560p ship, or how much they cost.
