great

Date:October 19, 2014
"serves a great purpose for gaming on games like minecraft. It is kind of upsetting that it is a finger print magnet. but overall it serves its purpose well."

Pretty good purchase

Date:October 12, 2014
"I got this laptop about a month ago. I'd say overall I'm happy with it, although I have a few complaints.
Cons: The display screen doesn't have very good viewing angles and also older programs or even when I'm on facebook chatting, the font looks blurry.
Also another downfall is the soft keyboard. Even my computer illiterate significant other realized this. You have to hit the keys pretty hard in order for them to register which is kind of annoying.
Pros: It seems to run games pretty well, CS:GO averages about 40-60 FPS on high settings. I haven't tried many other games yet.
Also the 256GB SSD is really nice, I'd suggest getting this model if you're not too worried about space-- there's always the option for an external SSD 3.0 USB.
Another complaint is that the product key for Windows 8 is hard to find, I can't find it... why is this?
Overall good buy, I imagine hooking up external displays and keyboards in the near future and using it as a desktop."

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.
