"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."
"I just got the i7 Haswell a month ago and so far am very pleased. Having the 2gb graphics card beats my old laptop to pieces. I haven't had any of the lag problems or connectivity issues mentioned in other reviews, although I'm in the same room as the router. (Unlike my Samsung S3 that can't find the signal.)
Colors are good. Speed is awesome. Power doesn't quit, although I haven't really pushed the capabilities. Keyboard is crisp and certain, not mushy. Sound is good.
Only thing I don't like at this point is that all of the connections are on the sides toward the front. I don't like having my extra monitor cable and USB connections being so prominent on my desk. Would really prefer the bulk of the connections be in the back. (And apparently there is no docking station for the Y410P.)"
Pros: Input/Output compatibility, Processor, Memory, Bluetooth, Video card, Display resolution
"I have had this for 3 month and always respond as expected. I'm a video editor enthusiast, works great editing HD videos from my Sony camcorder, also it´s excellent for gaming.The audio is great, I love S/PDIF feature and Bluetooth connectivity with my BOSE soundlink speaker . Love the design. The always-on USB port it´s so practical for recharge my tablet and camcorder! cool feature.
Thank you Lenovo, I´ll buy this brand again and I would recommend it :)"
"I purchased this laptop for my son as a Christmas gift. It runs very cool and quiet, plays all his games in high or med-high settings and the display is awesome. The sound quality is very good and excellent for a laptop. The back lit keys are much needed. The always on USB port is nice for keeping his headset charged. The price I paid for this gaming laptop was much less than others with the same hardware and capabilities. About $300-500 less. So far, it is a great purchase. We have owned it about 4 months. Battery life isn't great but that is to be expected. It isn't as bad as my old i7 laptop. Be careful with the screen as it can flex. It is very thin in that area. Other than that, great build quality."
"Overall this thing is a good computer, but with it comes some annoying disadvantages with going with a PC gaming laptop. First, the Wireless card. Its a piece of junk. I have had a very hard time staying on my internet for more than an hour at a time. The build quality and overall look of this computer. The black metal where you rest your hands when you type gets really grimy and smudged and is really hard to clean. The optical drive also broke, so my dvd drive keeps on falling out, so I had to duck tape it shut. My keyboard is also slowly coming off from the upper right side where the delete key is. If you are wanting to buy a laptop for gaming and schoolwork, I would recommend buying something like a chromebook and save up for a PC desktop at home so you dont have the problems."
"I ordered this laptop thinking it will be the greatest purchase I ever made. I turned it on and right off the bat I had problems. Blue Screens, error messages, constants decreases in performance. I called Lenovo and they said they couldn't fix it unless I paid an additional $70.00. Even though it was their fault they still want me to pay for this garbage machine. Just pathetic.....you are better off buying from a company that helps their customers."
"The computer was excellent and shipped to me right away. Very fast and feels durable. A lot of extras preloaded and it is tough to tell what can and can't be deleted safely. My computer shipped with hardware problems and in a case like this, one would expect a fast resolution but this was far from what I've experienced.
A single letter on the keyboard didn't work so I sent it back for repairs and it came back with touchpad problems, now I am waiting for a complete replacement, which was my initial desired solution, but which had gotten delayed due to errors on Lenovo's end."
"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."
Pros: Processor, Durability, Video card, Storage, Display performance
Cons: Wireless card, Battery, Weight, Included Software
"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."
