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."

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."

Deal Breaker

Date:January 8, 2013
Cons: trackpad, doesn't charge the battery
"I wanted a laptop that is versatile, portable, and reliable. The trackpad is sporadic in it's use. Drifts around the screen clicking on things when I'm trying to to get to click on what I want. Also, and this really is upsetting, the battery won't charge. Not sure which component is faulty--charger, connections, or battery. Was really sold on the specs of this machine. I guess you get what you pay for."

bad keyboard/mouse

Date:December 26, 2012
Pros: Input/Output compatibility, Processor, Memory, Screen size, Display resolution, Display performance
Cons: Storage, Battery, Bluetooth, Keyboard/peripherals, Included Software
"the laptop is fast. the FHD screen is awesome.
The biggest problem with this laptop is the keyboard and mouse. The keyboard types two characters at a time. the mouse is not accurate at all. it should have been more accurate.
No dedicated volume keys. NO KEY TO MUTE. not even with the fn button.
The microphone in port is too small, i cannot put the mic in it.
i have researched so much , i could not find a key that can turn off my bluetooth."
