Ever since the company picked up the ThinkPad business from IBM, Lenovo has been able to find a very comfortable spot for itself among the business market. However, business-oriented notebooks tend to cost more than their consumer-oriented counterparts. Thankfully, there’s a huge sale going on.
If you go to the official website, you’ll find that the Lenovo IdeaPad Y550 notebook is on sale for $900 off its regular price of $1988. That brings your net price down to just $1088, representing almost 50% in savings.
For that price, you don’t get into the new Core i3/i5/i7 line of processors, but you do get the Intel Core 2 Duo T9800 (2.93GHz) processor, 4GB PC3-8500 DDR3-1066 SDRAM, a 15.6-inch HD WLED display, 1.3 megapixel integrated webcam, 320GB hard drive, SuperMulti DVD-R drive, a 6-cell lithium-ion battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
It’s a little on the heftier side, tipping the scales at 6.06 pounds, but the IdeaPad Y550 is quite the workhorse based on those specs. If you want to get it for just $1088, you’ll need to act quickly. The $900 savings can be enjoyed by using the eCoupon USPY5T98, but only first 100 users can use it.
