Yes, this laptop does come with 1080p touchscreen. I just posted a review of the laptop. You will not beat the price of this laptop with the same features/config.

It has a hybrid drive which is part solid start and part regular hard drive. It starts up very fast and seems to run at a good speed, but that is probably due to it's processor as well.

I asked the people on the Lenovo Live Chat Help (useless) thing and they said you can't buy that model through their website which is why its not listed. But it looks like its already available through the BestBuy website http://www.bestbuy.com/site/lenovo-ideapad-u530-touch-ultrabook-15-6-touch-screen-laptop-8gb-memory-500gb-hard-drive-silver-black/1836027.p?id=1219065630762&skuId=1836027

This is a best buy exclusive, which is why it's not listed on Lenovo's website. Yes all the specs are correct for this PC. It's comparable to the Ideapad U530 Touch 59401453. The difference between these 2 models is the hard drive. This one comes with the smaller 500gb hybrid drive instead of the 1TB higher performing drive. This version is actually a better deal if you don't need the space, or are comfortable upgrading the hard drive yourself.

Question

Can it be upgraded?

I need to know if this computer can be upgraded at all. Specifically it's memory and hard drive. I also would like to know if it will work with an external BlueRay drive but the first two questions are far more important. Thank you.

You can upgrade the hard drive. The memory is replaceable also but the problem is there is only one DIMM slot. As far as I know they don't sell memory that comes in 16gb capacity sticks yet, so you're stuck at 8 gb of ram for the time being. Assuming they start selling 16gb DDR3 sticks ... I would assume they would work, but we won't know until they are available. Hope that helps.

According to Lenovo - YES. both RAM and HDD can be upgraded but only after purchase... also, should not be a problem to connect blu ray drive externally.

if size is not an issue - look at Dell's 7720 special edition, I also have it and it is a dream!!

You can upgrade the hard drive on this computer yourself. So you can replace it with an SSD. There is no option to order it with one though.

answer 2
This particular laptop (SKU #1836027) is not currently available through Best Buy with a solid state hard drive. Best Buy also does not offer configured-to-order computers or pre-purchase computer customization services at this time, so you would need to purchase both the laptop and a compatible replacement drive if you'd prefer an SSD.

No. It does let you upgrade to Windows 8.1 for free, which is a significant improvement over 8.0. Features such as the start button, and the ability to boot to the desktop have been added back.
