The Lenovo Y400 series has been available in Asia for some time now and recently slipped into the U.S. with no fanfair or any type of announcement from Lenovo. The Y410 is a 14.1" screen notebook with built-in face recognition security, Dolby Home Theatre sound and the innovative Shuttle key for easily controlling media.
Here's the rundown on the specs for the Lenovo Y410:
The Y410 is on the Lenovo site but it is not possible to buy direct from Lenovo. Lenovo is touting the face recognition capabilities of the Y410, called Veriface. The built-in web camera and software on board allow the Y410 to recognize the owner and grant Windows logon. It's essentially the same as biometric security, but more simple to use.
The Lenovo Y410 is the first notebook available in the U.S. that has the Olympic rings on the palm rest area. Lenovo is the sponsor of the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
Two built-in speakers and a subwoofer are very generous offerings for a 14.1-inch notebook. You also get a unique "Shuttle Control" for adjusting volume and equalization. The glossy widescreen display further make this a fit as a portable entertainment style notebook. All this for well under $1,000 is pretty good on the price front.
