  1. Among other things. What's the purpose of stopping someone who has already bought the machine from upgrading the components? It just seems like a massive, unnecessary restriction. I've heard that this is on a number of laptops, not just Lenovo. My guess is that you're supposed to buy a whole new laptop when you want a new feature. That way more money is leeched from you. Any other thoughts about why this is?

    decent ssd?

    Lets say you have files. You also have the need for speed. Nothing like good overkill: Amazon.com: Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 1TB 2.5-Inch SATA III Single Unit Version Internal Solid State Drive MZ-7TE1T0BW: Computers & Accessories

    upgrading myself to the Y580

    The only unlocked BIOS for the Y580 I'm aware of exists in this post on this forum: http://forum.techinferno.com/lenovo-ibm/2260-lenovo-y580-y480-unlocked-bios-versions.html

    y580 Touchpad issues

    Some gunk got stuck in my trackpad, though a can of air duster fixed it. The Synaptic TouchPad driver is also programmed to stop moving the mouse when typing. Also, if the HDD is having a lot of sequential writes, then the mouse will stop moving altogether.

    Lenovo Y580 / Y480 'unlocked' BIOS versions

    I can verify that the v2.0x mod works with my wife's Y580, I have yet to try the v8.01 on my own Y580 though.
