"Lets start this with saying Lenovo customer service was very helpful with getting this deployed military member his laptop in a timely manner. They even jumped through some hoops for me. Thanks Lenovo...
I purchased the lowest end model for this series with the single GT755m, 1366X768 display, 5200 HDD etc. This thing optimizes everything you throw at it. Fully maxed Skyrim runs 50-60 FPS. Temps stay fairly cool for such a powerful laptop. Boot up time even without the SSD is around 10-15 seconds. The red backlight on the keyboard is a stunning feature.
Great laptop no matter what the price is set to. I have yet to find a complaint about this laptop from my perspective."
"I purchased this computer because it seemed to have awesome specs at a very inexpensive price.
However, the computer constantly freezes and crashes. Load up times, which are supposed to be lightning fast due to my SSD, take 45 plus seconds. Scrolling through pictures which I have saved from my camera to my hard drive seem to take too much out of this machine.
The McAfee security service seems to drag down the speed of my pc.
The computer, at $1000, is cheap for awesome specs on paper. That is why i gave value 2 stars. But there are better alternatives.
This thing is heavy, slow and unreliable. I absolutely hate it. I am seriously considering trying to send it back, but am dreading the switching cost of having to repurchase software and transferring my files."
Cons: Support, Battery, ac 4 doesn't work good whitout ac plugged in
"Very fast, very pretty, comfortable keyboard.
The only disadvantage is the battery. And I found a strange bug: when I play Assassin's Creed 4 without the AC plugged in the game barely moves even at the main menu, but when I plug the AC it works smooth. Can someone explain this? Apart from these, it's a very recommended computer!"
Cons: Wireless card, Battery, Keyboard/peripherals, Included Software
"I love this laptop. It is great for taking to school and gaming on the road. The short battery life is a small let down, when are you not near a power plug? The one thing that really needs some serious redesign though is the track-pad. Its practically unusable. Always make sure you have an extra mouse to take with you! Also, don't plan on upgrading the wifi card. This laptop has a white list, and will not allow you to boot with another wifi card. Easily fixed by flashing the BIOS, but voids your warranty."
"It's not as heavy as some other gaming laptops. It also has a pretty sleek look, unlike gaudy Alienware laptops. On to the important part: how does it run? My setup was 16gb ram with dual 2gb GT 750 graphics cards. It has a 1TB HDD/8GB SSHD. Everything I have run from Crysis 3 to Dishonored to Portal 2 has run perfectly smooth on ultra settings. The one thing that this battery doesn't do well, understandably, is its battery life, which on full brightness lasts only 3-4 hours, and if you're gaming, 2 or less. Anyone expecting great battery life in a gaming laptop should not get one, anyway.All in all, this is an amazing laptop in terms of the value compared to other gaming configurations."
"Best Birthday Gift my Gf can possibly buy for me and loving everything about this laptop, pretty good high end on almost everything. what i really love about this laptop are the many possibilties for tweaking it in the future is need be... BUT it's already so PERFECT."
Cons: Display resolution, Support, Keyboard/peripherals, Included Software, Build Quality, Durability
"Maybe I am spoiled from having an Alienware. There's no ID#s on the case, mouse pointer moves when i click it, you have to purchase software support separate, power chord is short/flimsy, screen is 1920 but looks worse than my 1020. No Windows disk. I've been told no returns (purchased direct from Lenovo online). I'll find out Monday. It is quiet and runs cool, but boy does the case show fingerprints, and it feels like it's bending when I pick it up. The mouse thinks I pressed the right button instead of left when I'm way over to the left. It's so smudged already it looks like it's a year old and I only got it yesterday. This mousepad stinks.
ps Windows 8 is too different, it looks like it belongs on an android phone not a PC."
"love the feel of the keyboard and I really love the red light up keys. I find that you can really survive without the touch. Windows 8 responds very nicely to wheel on the top pf the mouse. I prefer to use an external mouse, but that is just personal preference. I test drove other laptops with touch I found it very tiring to stretch across the keyboard to touch the screen. The responsiveness of this laptop is awesome, it powers up as soon as I lift the cover. I had a desk top prior too this and now that I have this laptop, I don't see myself ever going back. Sure you can buy a cheaper laptop, but that is the point, they are cheaper and you get what you pay for. I usually get at least 5-6 hrs on the battery."
"The first one came with problems, the microphone didn't work the display would cut in and out and the speakers wouldn't work. I called Lenovo and Little under a month I received my new laptop. I checked the SN number to make sure they didn't send me the same laptop. About two weeks later my new laptop started to have some problems, the speakers were having the same problems as the last, the keyboard would randomly stop working, and the laptop would keep restarting randomly. So I called lenovo again and returned it. It took almost two months to recieve my money back after I had returned their product. I really liked this laptop but there were to many problems."
"I Don't like the brushed aluminum because it feels like plastic and it's a little bit flimsy and it is a big fingerprint magnet and attracts all kinds dust and stuff, I also don't like the battery, I get a descent battery life but when i'am playing lets say minecraft it lags a little bit but when I put the charger in it works perfectly fine. but i do like the red keyboard. I do not recommend you stay with windows 8 because if your used to windows 7 like me it's a little funky and has a lot of bugs and issues. when i do have the charger in i can play lots of game like bf4 on ultra and it's really nice. I do recommend this to anyone on a budget for gaming laptops and it preforms a better than an Alienware 14m. but since it has windows 8 i personaly think it should have touch."

"I ordered my laptop on 10/13/13 and received it within two business days on 10/16/13. I was really impressed by the speed at which it arrived as I had been expecting it to take a few weeks to a month. Initial setup was pretty quick and I found my internet connection to be fine. My one main irritation is the location of the USB/mouse port on the right-hand side. It's rather close to the edge of its base so my hand continuously hits this as I am using my mouse. The second day of use I noticed some internet problems - my connection was fine, but I would attempt to use various websites and it stated there was no connection and dropped me multiple times. This lasted for about an hour and now seems to be working just fine again."
"I got the new lenovo Y510p laptop last week. I want to play Dota 2 with it. It is a nightmare to play games with friends. The wifi disconnects every ten minutes. My old Dell laptop is good, never drops the wifi.
I am sure the drives are the newest. I am sure the router is good. I cannot believe that a gaming laptop could have such awful design."
"It's a great laptop for both gaming and business. The speakers are phenomenal and the processing power on this thing is just great. Windows 8 took a bit while to get used to, but it's a decent operating system once you do get the hang of it. The only thing i don't like about it is its wifi card, the Intel N-2230. I do not know why Lenovo chose this card. I can't get a stable connection to my university's wifi(It's running on 802.11N). But it works fine with 802.11G. It's just a shame that it has that, other than that, it's an amazing laptop so far. One other thing is the touchpad. Not as bad as the wifi card, but it's still something to mention. It goes haywire when i have gestures enabled."
"This machine (the 59370005) ROCKS! Not simply because of its blazing performance, but because of its build quality and excellent keyboard, too.
The Win8 "Metro" UI, which is better suited for smart phones and tablets than PC's, is a terrible arrangement for anybody who needs to use his PC for any real work. But Lenovo included the Pokki Menu. It makes living with Win8 not only painless, but a genuine improvement over Win7. (I never imagined I'd ever say that.)
After I had loaded all my software, my new Y510p required only about 30 seconds to boot to a working desktop from a power-off state. I expected this to increase a little when I upgraded the OS to Win8 Pro in order to join the machine with my Domain. But to my surprise, it now takes only about 20 seconds!"
