Customer Reviews for IdeaPad Y50
Review 1 for IdeaPad Y50
Date:July 1, 2014
"The specs for this laptop are truly fantastic. As an amatuer 3D modeler I needed something powerful and portable. With the 5.0 compute capability graphics card, GPU rendering in Cycles is blazing fast. Its build quality is fantastic too. The soft, rubbery finish around the keyboard gives a very comfortable hand rest, and the brushed aluminum finish on the outside gives it a sleek feel. The screen isn't amazing, but it's really not bad. Overall, this is definitely a great laptop to buy if you're looking for well-priced power."
"Powerful light weight gaming laptop; the specs says it all! I'm using my y50/i7-4700/16G RAM/1T HD+8G SD/GTX860M 4GB for mainly graphic design and just a few gaming. Handles graphic software like a piece of cake. as for gaming, i can run WatchDog at Max settings with no problem. Overall, you can pretty much know about it performance-wise from others' reviews. Some down sides are cosmetics. First it's quite a fingerprint magnet. Second although the rubber-feel surface on the palm rest is pretty comforting, i'm worried it may easily get worn out like these ThinkPad Travel mouse. Last but not least, keyboard is a bit loose; that is, when you hit a key, the keys around it will also move up and down a little, as well as the keyboard frame. After all, considering the power it has, I'm cool with that."
"Great Laptop. The screen its not that bad. Great keyboard and awesome gaming performance with great tmperatures (not more than 65 celcius playing 1 hour of rome total war 2 for example). The negatives are the touch pad and the finger prints."
"like i said before i wanted to give the product a second try. and it met my expectations. it works much better than the one i had. glad it got fixed. definitely worth the buy. new design is to perfect."
"I must admit, I am disappointed. First of all the screen is just total garbage! Really a TN panel? Come on, Lenovo! This is advertised as a "multimedia" notebook. Watching videos on this is atrocious. If watching videos on this system isn't great, then the system should not be advertised a multimedia laptop. Secondly, the battery life is below average. Yes, it's a gaming laptop, but a 4 Cell 54 Watt Hour battery doesn't serve it justice; especially with an i7 CPU and 860m graphics. I give credit to Lenovo for crafting a more affordable multimedia laptop with great specs, but as a result, the screen as well as the battery life suffers. My recommendation for next year's model: IPS Display + Bigger Battery while maintaining the sleek design and affordability. I hope Lenovo's engineers really take this review into consideration because over the years, Lenovo's quality is noticeably getting worse."
"First off, I had the Y50 non touch that cost$ 1249.. the computer was great, I used it for graphic designing and simple gaming like counter strike. I had a few issues with the computer. One file explorer would work on and off, as in I would open it and then the application would close down 1/7 times, but it still worked fine. Second google chrome was not able to run correctly. It would not run most websites, nor videos on YouTube, while internet explorer was perfectly fine.Lastly I was not able to update the NVIDIA graphics card for some reason. Went on lenovo and the nvidia website to see of anything was avaliable. There was an update for it but whem I tried to update it said,"no compatable hardware". Not sure if others are having the same issues, but I ended up returning it... but gunna purchase it agian and give it one , more try. Overall its great product for a great price."
