Lenovo 14-inch IdeaPad Y470p comes with Radeon HD 7690M GPU
Lenovo has quietly started taking orders for its 14-inch IdeaPad Y470p which looks just like the existing Y470 model but it barters away the NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M for a far more potent Radeon HD 7690M. Driven by a 2.2GHz quad-core Core i7 processor the laptop packs 8GB of RAM, an optional 1TB HDD, JBL speakers and a native 1,366 x 768 screen resolution. It weighs just 4.85 pounds with a six-cell battery. Other features include a Blu-ray Disc drive, a two-megapixel webcam, HDMI out and USB 3.0. The laptop is presently available for pre-order with the price tag of $799 with the Y470p scheduled to ship on February 13th.
