So from what I've seen around the internet this laptop's supposed to have a 16gb SSD cache along with the 1TB HDD. Mine doesn't have one and it kinda bummed me when I bought the laptop. Maybe it's how units here in the Philippines are (that sucks). Anyway I got myself a 256GB Toshiba mSATA and it's just glorious. I posted this to ask if there are actually models of the y500 with no SSD cache. The more you know, right? Thanks! *I'm currently looking into flashing my BIOS with the sticky posted in this forum because I wanna switch out the crappy network card to an Intel 7260 AC. Also since I just got a better router that makes use of AC. Tips would be appreciated **Oh, I'm planning to OC too once the flash is done. Wooo!
