lenovo-y550-desktop-navigator-barIf you’ve been waiting for Lenovo’s IdeaPad Y550, the smaller sibling to the Lenovo Y650 – well it’s ready to buy!

The Y550 shrugs off the trend for Atom-based netbooks and is sporting a 15.6 inch (1366 x 768 pixel) screen as well as packing a 2GHz Core 2 Duo T4200 processor, 2GB of DDR3 memory and 250GB hard disk, 6-cell battery and integrated DVD writer.

What I’m really digging is that groovy touch-sensitive Desktop Navigator shortcut bar.

Yup, you get a real laptop for $669!

If you cough-up $1,199 you can be all smug with 4GB of memory, 512MB of GeForce G 105M graphics, and 500GB of disk.
