Date:August 26, 2014
"You might have heard bad things about the screen. Dont listen to them it looks amazing. I got the one with the sshd and i7, and its gaming and web performance are incredible!! as fast as my gaming desktop! THE BEST THING are the speakers!! OH MY GOD they sound like pro desktop speakers!!!! I only wish it had a backlit keyboard but its ok. Overall id say BUY THIS LAPTOP"

You will not be desappointed

Date:August 21, 2014
"Very pleased with this purchase. The battery life, performance, and look of this laptop make it industry leading for this price point. I got the 512 SSD model on sale for $999. You really cant beat this setup for that price. If you are looking for a fast computer that looks great, and also plays video games at console quality, then look no further!
Note to lenovo: would have loved to see a back lit keyboard and IPS display."

Beastly Computer

Date:August 15, 2014
"Ok this thing handles like fine silk. It never lags EVER. and forget your game crashing mid game. I love this thing. It has so much space and mind blowing speed. I mean this is definitely a gaming computer and the sound is amazing. The display looks like it was carved out of a diamond, I mean, It's the best resolution I've ever seen. honestly, I cant find anything I dislike about it. 1 major thing that is really nice is that it DOESNT OVERHEAT. I hated getting my hands sweaty on my old computer while playing and sometimes I put tissues under my hands so that the sweat wouldn't get messy and annoying... but with the finish on the computer and no overheat, it's perfect. 5 star review through it all. I couldn't suggest a nicer computer."

Wireless Speed of mas 30 mbps

Date:August 14, 2014
"I had high hopes for this laptop. I got the 16gb of ram and 512 SSD version. I have some major problems.
First and most important, the wireless is absolutely atrocious. I noticed serious lag times opening windows. I did speed tests over multiple networks and the max I could get was 30 mbps upload and download. My 5 year old laptop with atrocious specs did 3x better. This is unacceptable. I've been on the phone with the help lines...Lenovo computer help lines must be real life purgatory. I could not for the life of me understand the last guy but there was talk of charging me extra since it may be a software issue. If I have to pay to fix a brand new laptop I am returning-that is absurd.
Also the trackpad is touchy and the right click is difficult.
If the wireless worked I could have written a great review. If the machine ran consistent with the supposed specs it would be an amazing deal, but so far I am very disappointed. If you don't need internet this is the deal for you..."

Took some work

Date:August 12, 2014
"I love this laptop's hardware. I don't love the mountains of bloatware that it comes with. For example I had bluetooth driver issues, these issues were caused by the lenovo energy manager. So once you delete everything that has the word lenovo in front of it you're good to go. Also if you're willing to tweak settings, this machine can hold it's own in intense gaming, it's not a desktop, but it can handle anything a console can. Great value, and if you need the extra performance you probably have the skill to tweek it to fit your needs."
