Did anyone comfirm if the barcode that shoppers scans is the same for the y520 and y530? Or are they different?
Y520: 1 91200 47951 9
Y530: 1 93268 22458 2
Pepsi: First a XBox360, then a Samsung 40" LCD HDTV, then a Sony Ericsson W300i, then a Samsung 32" LCD HDTV, then a ...

Coke: What!? This isn't a $2249 Dell Inspiron 6000! It's an entry level $899 laptop! But hey, thanks for the two Nintendo Wii's!

For anyone who is looking for a Y530, I was just at the shoppers in Bowmanville at Longworth Ave and they have one sitting at the main counter. They close at 10pm. I was thinking about buying it myself but I feel I got a real good deal on my yoga 730 and don’t really need a gaming laptop. Just giving the heads up to anyone who wants one and can get to shoppers at longworth ave before 10pm.

Thanks OP and thanked. I had just returned from Beijing yesterday and thought I had missed the deal. Called all the SDM's in the Niagara region and most had the Y520. On my very last call, scored one. I returned the unopened Y520 from a month ago and bought the Y530. I can confirm that I paid $568 after redeeming 300,000 for $450. I also had the 20x points offer and hence earned another 134,700 points. Essentially, I got a decent laptop for $568 less the $135 in points. NOT A BAD DEAL AT ALL.....SMOKING HOT ACTUALLY !!!
And now I need to buy a good SSD and add additional RAM. Any suggestions on hot deals on these either in the US or here?

Thanks again OP.

Tried quite a few shoppers in my region, no luck... Do they regularly restock?

Had to call 8 stores but I found one. One other store had the Y520.

I have an existing SSD but it's not M2. Would have to replace the HDD with it.

Read the screen flickering issues pertaining to the yoga 730. I cancelled my order. There is a link to the screen flickering issue in the yoga 530 thread. Not worth the $1000 headache.

It’s a different family product between Yoga vs Legion. This thread is about Legion Y530.

Covaboy was just responding to Hunito who passed on a Y530 because he had already purchased a Yoga.
