Ideapad Y550P: Lenovo’s 1st Core i7 Laptop
Last week, Lenovo showed us their very first gaming laptop running an Intel Core i7 processor. With a 15.6-inch screen, the Ideapad Y550P packs a good punch that could beat most desktops out there.
Wasn’t sure if the Core i7 processor was rated at just 1.6GHz but since it’s got Turbo Boost Technology, I think the CPU can overclock on its own when the need arises.
You get a Core i7 CPU, 500GB HDD, 8GB DDR3 RAM, Nvidia GeForce GT 240M with 1GB RAM, a Blueray drive and Windows 7 Home Premium. The 15.6″ screen has a resolution of 1366×768 pixels.

This model will be available in the market starting January 2010 and will have a suggested retail price in the vicinity of Php95,000+.
