Good computer, but Windows 8.1 is awful

Date:November 25, 2014
"I got exactly what I expected from this computer's hardware. It's a little on the heavy side, screen view angle is limited, can be too dim. Haven't noticed any difference in speed with SSHD vs. wife's ideapad w/ windows 8.1, with i5 processor, HD, etc.
The real problem is Windows 8.1. It is awful. Everything is much slower than it needs to be, none of the new features make navigation or activities faster or easier. I spent several days changing default settings (for example, not using the default photo viewer), installing fixes (startmenu). The new start screen is useless. Why would I want to go to a different screen to get to another program which then can't run side-by-side, when I could previously click twice?
Video plays worse than on my 5 year old Dell studio w/ windows 7 and an integrated graphics card. I hope I can learn how to dual boot win. 7.
Recommendation? Lenovo made a good computer at a good price, but Windows 8.1 is a deal breaker. Get a Mac, or one with Win 7."

Awesome product, but extremely sad pricing!

Date:November 21, 2014
"Just a week after I bought Lenovo Y40 from the official company site, I get a coupon mailed from Lenovo (official) on my alternative email ID for 35% off. This pricing strategy is extremely disappointing. This notional loss of 35% feels terrible as I have been a loyal customer of Lenovo products since 2006.
