I have the y410p and I'm just trying to understand if it will be possible to upgrade the GPU in 4-5 years. When I tried to look for purchase options, I couldn't find anyone selling mobile GPUs. Are every GPU connector so different that you wouldn't be able to fit a 755m into a 750m? Are graphics card manufacturers holding a monopoly on laptop GPUs, and justifying it by saying that laptops are much harder to open and upgrade. I don't understand why lenovo made the Y series is so ridiculously easy to replace parts, yet they decided to whitelist wifi adapters. The ACdualband 7260 is so cheap only 30$, I don't understand why they don't come packaged into base models, especially since in bulk the price is probably 10$. The only possible reason is if lenovo bought in bulk like 100,000+ of the 2230, or that intel knew the 2230 were problematic and offered lenovo a firesale of like 50 cents per adapter. Then you have the weird product issues of them not providing a matte screen despite advertising a matte screen, and then all of a sudden not providing the y410p/y510p models with dual gpu sli ultrabay upgrade. Then to top it all off, you have the weird sales practice where Lenovo says that all of their products are on sale for hundreds of dollars cheaper than the real price. I'm actually kind of mystified that somehow, there was an designer in Lenovo that made the new y series into a great form factor, and that it is actually one of cheaper gaming laptops on the market. I am thoroughly enjoying my purchase however Lenovo will not be seeing any more business out of me, as their support isn't even good enough to make customers happy, as I've seen numerous screenshots of supports who don't understand anything about the product and are clearly reading a script and can't actually help people. Does anyone think my concerns of lenovo not being a reliable company is justified?
