IdeaPad Y40 - Amazing Value!

Date:October 23, 2014
"So I love that I am able to get a 500gb ssd, AMD R9 275 with 4gb, an i7 processor and 16gb of RAM for under $1,000. A couple years ago it was that much for the SSD alone.
I am not going to reiterate the feedback that has already been mentioned except to say that this is an amazing, dependable, and screaming fast machine, and I have no regrets about my purchase decision.
One thing I did notice is that I read reviews where people were complaining about the keyboard being backlit. If you look at the photos, it is very easy to see that they are not and never have been backlit; they simply have red plastic at the base of each key. Nowhere in the documentation does it claim to have backlit keys. I think the system is fine without them; the contrast of white text on the black plastic is sufficient.
If you're looking for an affordable, killer, gorgeous gaming laptop, look no further."

Good but screen isn't great

Date:October 21, 2014
"After four months of use I will tell you what I think of the Lenovo y40. It Runs games very well all though it can get rather warm but not too bad. It's also a fingerprint magnet and the screen is pretty bad but I don't think you will notice it too much unless you're sitting next to a computer with a better monitor. Despite all the negatives its still a great laptop for the price"

Sent back twice in first month...

Date:October 21, 2014
"I received this laptop less than 3 weeks ago and head to return it to have the display replaced because it had a stress mark on it.
Two days later, the laptop was frozen (screen would not come on) so I had to power down the laptop by holding the power button. When I pressed the power button to turn it back on, smoke came from the laptop. So now it is back at Lenovo having either the battery or the motherboard replaced it sounds like..."
