If it's roughly around $200, then it's ok. It's around market price for an SSD. Sandforce 120G is around $200, after MIR. The fastest SSD on the market. If you want until actual boxing day, I'm pretty sure NCIX or CC will have them for maybe $10 less.

I'm currently thinking about buying the IdeaPad Y560 Laptop. Any comments?

It has very capable graphics ability and a good processor. But I don't know the IdeaPad much.

The information I have is that our exclusive is stronger than the public Boxing Day offer.

So is Lenovo saying that anyone who buys now with the coupon, will not regret the decision come Boxing Day???

Sure the 40% discount might be better than whatever is publically offered on Boxing Day, but the general prices of their products could fall another 25% and they could offer 25% off, than the 40% deal (on now) isn't as good. OR the public Boxing Day deal could be 35% off for the Laptops AND warranty (which they don't usually do). If this is the case the 40% still doesn't look as good (as the warranties could get pricey).

If you're saying that I will be COMPLETELY satisfied using this coupon vs waiting for Boxing Day, I will buy now. If you can't make that statement, I think I'll wait it out.

Regards,
Jim

I get "The configuration is invalid." for this exact same config and am unable to check out. It seems to have something to do with the i7...
