how does the 8970 compare to the 770m? is the bottleneck large enough, to make the 770m outperform the 8970?

For this price range, I would try to make sure that it has an SSD.

Okay... Just try to get one with Haswell (for better power consumption) and an SSD (for quite fast boot times). :)

You will get a better deal with the y510 if you buy from the Lenovo site.
