"Yes, the wifi and comes and goes and I tried almost everything out there and they DO NOT WORK. The only thing that worked for me was uninstalling the wifi card driver and install a new one. Here's the link: support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?DocID=DS031815 Just follow the direction on uninstalling the old one and installing the new one. The problem with the graphics card is that intel hd4600 is the default graphic card and NOT the nvidia gt750m. I gave this laptop 4 stars because I was miserable on the first 5 days when I got this laptop. Wifi was on and off and the interchangeable graphics card was just plain annoying. Has to spend extra time finding solutions!"
Pros: Processor, Memory, Video card, Storage, Display resolution, Display performance
Cons: Wireless card, Battery, Weight, Included Software, touchpad, os not on ssd
"Cons: 1. Takes a long time to connect to internet 2. Trackpad has terrible sensitivity, scrolling is shaky, and click buttons are awkwardly placed. 3. Battery lasted only 2:45 on power saver mode running only Onenote. 4. Brushed metal looks dirty after absorbing natural skin oil. 5.OS wasn't installed on SSD, even after confirming with sales rep that it was. Doesn't come with a Win8 install disc so I can't do it myself.There is a ton of pre-installed bloatware.
Pros: 1. Runs games well on the highest settings. 2. Minimal heat when doing standard tasks, and not too bad when gaming. 3. Crisp clear sounds and good volume. 4. Glossy screen is bad outside, but great indoors."
"unfortunately, returning a brand new machine today (and this is a replacement machine) because, again, there are memory issues going on. second machine, same problem--what is going on, Lenovo? the low memory warning comes up every now and then. i have not even installed all the software I need!
wireless is not 100% reliable, but it has not been extremely bad for me--only small disconnection problems. what a disappointment."
"This is a great laptop. I have been using it now, for about 6 months. No issues faced ever.
Pros: 1. Good battery life; 2. Great design; 3. Beautiful red-backlit keyboard; 4. Powerful Graphics with Nvidia 750M; 5. Windows 8, 64 bit; 6. Quad Core i7 Processor (only few companies give this processor at such a low price); 7. Good cooling system; 8. And it will go on... (I JUST LOVE MY LAPTOP...)
Cons: 1. sometimes lags and hangs, but then I suppose that is the problem with all Windows laptop. 2. Sometimes wireless connectivity causes some problems. 3. Don't like the extra bezel around the screen
In All, this is a great buy at such a low price. I even got my friend to buy this laptop, and he also likes it. (he was going for a Mac)

"handles every game I own at high-ultra setting with 35+fps, With everything in Nvidia control panel maxed out except Anti-Aliasing Transparency at 2x Super-sampling. I will be using this for a few years looks sweet with red lit keys."
"I used this laptop for a few months and handed down to my relative who was looking for a good gaming machine. I really wanted to keep it because the specs on this machine (and y510p) are great, BUT I hated the fake carbon fiber looking exterior ... why lenovo ??? whyyy??? y510p has a nice exterior. why did not you keep the same design for y410p??? The other reason was the screen. I am not sure if it is an option now, but the one I had did not have an antiglare screen. For me, this computer could have been the best one out there if it did not have the hideous external pattern and had a better screen."

"This is by far the best laptop you can buy for $800 if you don't mind a little heft to your computer. Granted, it's a little heavy, but it's capable of doing everything from BF4 to SolidWorks without a hitch.
I personally play PlanetSide 2 on mine at 40+ FPS pretty much constantly, with medium-high graphics.
Also, the speakers are amazing. Very loud for a laptop and pretty decent quality at medium volume levels."
"in my opinion lenovo Y series is one of the best multimedia and gaming laptop in the market. I think it is also the cheapest when you compare the specs to the competitors.
I wish 2 things could be different or OPTIONAL ... 1 - red colored keyboard. It does not bother me that much, but I wish the customer could have an option of not having any color ... OR having white color instead of red. I use this for business and it is a bit embarrassing to have flashy red keyboard :) 2- The external casing of the computer. I wish lenovo offered different options. I knew what I was getting but I still think the fake carbon fiber pattern is hideous :P I wish Y410 had the same exterior as Y510 ... or anything other than the fake carbon fiber pattern."
Cons: Input/Output compatibility, Battery, Keyboard/peripherals, Included Software, Build Quality
"Bought this coz I have an X60, but this cannot come close. Impressive config for the price so good value like that compared to competition. Within 2 weeks, my keyboard broke and was replaced but now the left side sticks up - scotch tape holds it down now. The trackpad has occasional lag/sensitivity issues. Support reinstalled driver. Problem is still there. Glossy finish causes smudges. Cant find a docking station to connect multiple monitors. Display is good. Runs fast. Decent battery life. Back lit keyboard is nice, but keys can be better. Audio is not great but may depend on my prog. Is it value for money - not at this price point. Overall feel should be better."
"I bought this computer for business. It took a month before I could even use it because the battery was not working out of the box. It would not charge. Since the batter is built in I had to ship the computer back to Lenovo to replace the battery and have it shipped back. It also has significantly decreased my productivity mostly due to the touch pad. The touch pad is very sensitive and is tap to click. So as you type if your sleeve or part of your hand slightly touches it the cursor is suddenly somewhere you do not expect. For me it is not functional w/o an extranal mouse and the touch pad turned off, making it less mobile."

"I bought this laptop because I needed a computer that I could use for school work, and some semi-casual gaming on the side. The two biggest problems I have run into have been the build quality and the pre-installed software. The amount of software was monstrous, but it was all easily uninstalled. The build quality I didn't expect to be astounding, but there are some quality issues that should have been fixed. The GPU, CPU, and amount of RAM are all sufficient for my uses, and the keyboard is certainly above average for a laptop. Overall this laptop is a solid, well rounded computer. It has its flaws, but they are greatly overshadowed by the unbeatable price point. If you are in the market for a laptop, there is no better choice."
Cons: Wireless card, Weight, Included Software, Software compatibility, Build Quality
"My friend got a Y410 in the summer and I bought one in X'mas. Everything ran fine until I found a small chip on the screen. Call Lenovo for a replacement. The second one came in. When I first started the laptop, it was already very slow, installed office and other software and it was frozen 3 times. Very disappointed and return both. However I really like the Lenovo my friend has."
"I have this lap top for over a week. got no problem.just updated to 8.1 that is so faster and lighter.no graphic problem on 755 . track pad is not the best but you can deal with it.keyboard is nice.this is great on charge and not bad on battery.no problem with wifi card....."
