ET deals: Lenovo Y40 1080p gaming laptop with R9 M275 graphics for $850

When we last talked about Lenovo’s Y40 just under a month ago, we were pretty thrilled with the price of $1,100 for a rig with a huge 512GB SSD. Today, Lenovo dropped the price on the base model to a new low, so if you don’t mind swapping that SSD for 508GB of SSHD, you can now get in on this powerful gaming laptop for just $850.

Even the entry Y40 config still packs elite gaming specs. To start things off, there’s a fourth-Gen Core i7-4510U processor paired with a new 2GB AMD R9 M275X graphics card, a combo that will deliver high-end performance that’s also surprisingly power efficient for a gaming laptop. The Y40 is more portable than most frag-friendly notebooks at 4.85 pounds, and that energy efficiency means the battery will last up to five hours, so you’ll actually be able to throw it in a bag and leave the power brick at home sometimes.

That battery life is all the more impressive considering it’s powering an anti-glare display capable of pumping out a 1080p resolution. That’s a spec you won’t find on typical 14-inch models, and is especially key when you’re gaming and every pixel of real estate counts. With 8GB RAM and a 500GB HDD and 8GB SSD combo drive, boot time and multitasking will be snappy too.

Connectivity is strong with the speedy Intel dual-band wireless-AC 3160 and Bluetooth 4.0 serving your wireless needs. For your wired peripherals, you’ll find three USB ports (two USB 3.0), HDMI, and a multi-card reader, giving you plenty of options.

Lenovo also includes nice touches like JBL stereo speakers, a backlit keyboard, and Veriface technology for unlocking your computer with your face, so you’re getting an all-around premium package here. Pick up this portable gaming rig now for the lowest price it’s been before this deal disappears.
