Review 3 for IdeaPad Y40
A good laptop for a reasonable price
Date:October 7, 2014
"I had a 5 years old Dell running on stock 32 bit Vista so it was high time to get a new laptop. I got the model 59423032. Y40 has a dual core processor and AMD graphics as compared to y50's quad core and nVIDIA. This might be to save power on the y40. It runs for around 4 - 5 hours of normal use, 2 - 3 hours of intense use. The touchpad on the computer is good but the buttons are a little hard. The keyboard is a little disappointing . It has a very low travel and also is not backlit. The screen looks ok but not as great as you would expect a full HD screen to be. The speakers are quite nice for a laptop. The laptop usually stays quite cool on the two internal fans but do not forget to put the laptop on a support leaving some empty space under it. Overall, the laptop is a nice buy with some desired changes. A better screen, keyboard and touchpad. I was also a little dissapointed to find that the laptop was $200 cheaper a couple of weeks after I bought it. I was unlucky I guess."
