The Lenovo Ideapad Y510p Thread

thekingstallion

Right off the assembly line
Can someone please tell me what is the exact price of Y510P (Core i5 version) in kolkata? I don't want to purchase it from online.

A lots of shop telling me it's not available or it's come to the end of life. And those people who have stock is asking for around 65K (Before price drop in FK). While it's available in lenovo site for around 60K also.

If the offline price is not less than 58K then can someone please suggest me another model (Lenovo / HP / Asus / Dell) with more or less similar configuration. I'm willing to purchase it in 1st week of June.☺

nw its a different seller. so W S Retail lost stock i guess..
the price of y510p when i checked almost a month was 72000 on flipkart.so it might not have been a stock clearance sale nw .. were u following the prices closely ?

+1 to this... I also remember it being around 72k for quite a long time at the beginning of this month!!!

keep looking..carefully. WS Retail did came back for 71xxx on FK few days back for a few hours that too with a free lenovo backup.

I dont think people should trust snapdeal with a 56000rs laptop purchase.. especially after the companies are saying that they wont be responsible for warranty services if their products are brought through such outlets ..

You are right...I ordered from Snapdeal and the product has only 8 months warranty, have escalated the issue...lets see what happens next... :cry:

Yes...but when i checked on the official lenovo website it shows warranty is valid till 24th Jan, 2014, whereas I've received the product today only...

also if any1 knows anyways to check whether the laptop is new or old, please help, though it seems completely new from the exterior, still i want to be sure...

I ran a hard disk test, it shows that the hard disk was switched on 22 times and had run 9 hours, does any1 know whether it is ok for a new hardrive to have these figures coz i believe lenovo must have switched it on to install OS & other softwares but would it have to run 8-9 hours for that...???

In lenovo's site it says that they test all of their products b4 selling ..so it may be due to the tests they ran.. MAYBE..

whoa..9hrs of runtime?
try running crystal disk and see if it's the same.
IMO the HDDs will def have sm runtime logged as the OEM install OS :| but just compare them

Maybe it's because of the marketplace. I still think if you buy from WS Retail you'll get warranty... but can't say for sure. Wait for others opinions too.

anyone who have bought from ws retail please reply asap. want to buy tomorrow. Thanks

Well, when I bought my Y510p, it had extra 15 days of warranty (when I checked it online).

Lucky u...

In lenovo's site it says that they test all of their products b4 selling ..so it may be due to the tests they ran.. MAYBE..

May be...but how to be sure...??

i ran crystal disk only...but the question is whether it is normal for a disk to have 20+ power counts and 8+ hours of runtime...??

a positive development...I called lenovo to know how to check whether the laptop is used or not, they checked with the serial number and confirmed that laptop has not been used...also they say laptop is switched on & off a few times for testing at the manufacturers facility also the retailers before receiving the delivery may switch on the device for testing...

for the warranty they have asked me to mail the invoice and they can update the warranty on the website, apparently the warranty displayed on the website is as per the manufacturing date, the warranty will be updated as per the date on the retail invoice...

some relief :Fingerx:

even i want to know the same as already some space (approx 100 gb) is not accessible to us, which lenovo claims is reserved for recovery, then why do we have to create another backup file on the hardisk which will take another 20-30 gb space...
