EXCELLENT

Date:December 28, 2012
Pros: Input/Output compatibility, Processor, Video card, Build Quality, Display resolution, Display performance
Cons: trackpad
"This laptop is wonderful. The performance is great, the display is great. Games run brilliantly and windows 8 is pretty nice as well. The only cons would be battery life and the trackpad. The trackpad does seem to be somewhat quirky at times, but it takes a little getting used to. Once the controls are figured out the trackpad is wonderful. And if it still bugs you, buy a mouse. These things are DEFINITELY not deal breakers."

Owned Product:Less than a month

This is not reliable

Date:January 18, 2013
Cons: touchpad
"The biggest problem with this product (Y500) is its touchpad, after using iit for 30 mins, it started moving and clicking on its own. This happens so frequently in a way that prevents me from concentrating on my work. I have tried updating the drivers, disabled advanced touchpad features but with no luck to get it to work properly. I do not recommend this product at all.
Moreover, it doesn't have multimedia keys although it is a gaming laptop where you need to increase/decrease the volume while in-game. This is another big diisappointment.
The rest of it is okay but nothing impressive."
