Summary: Just got the computer in the mail. Screen is broken and does not boot properly. It also appeared to have been opened before...This was supposed to be a new product. I will be notifying Amazon. Not happy.
Summary: I purchased this laptop last year from Lenovo's website during a sale. While this laptop has a killer graphics card and a good keyboard, the quality of the case and display is very, very, *very* poor. My Y410P's display has a 1600 by 900 pixel resolution, which is not good enough for a display this large. (I understand that the display is not a "retina" display — however, it would not be asking too much for a 1920 by 1080 resolution.
Summary: It is a powerhouse. I ran GTA 4 high settings. No problems. Ran The Ballad of Tony Gay, no problems. And yet has the option to add another video card through the expansion bay. Also has the ability to add another 8gbs of ram. It's very stable.
Summary: I purchased this laptop for around $900 because I liked video games and was on a budget. However, the computer only lasted a single year because of its left hinge, a manufactory defect which caused the computer to turn itself off and on spastically when opened and also was, unsurprisingly, not covered by warranty. So unless you don't plan on opening your laptop ever, this cheap plastic coating which lenovo calls a "case" will be an issue. Graphics looked great.
Summary: At the time I bought this product it offered the best power for the price. I expected that the components would be fairly cheap but the software issues were just plain annoying. Here's what you should expect from a cheap manufacturer like lenovo: the case is made of cheap plastic, the screen is thin, fragile and sits directly on top of the keys (this means that there will be scuff marks all over your screen and if the computer isn't hibernating or off, they keys will get...
Summary: If I could give it 0 stars I would. Expresscache is broken by default and causes windows to hang in even basic fresh installs. Do NOT buy this product. Lenovo does not even acknowledge the issue despite thousand of angry people who could have gone with a another brand.
Summary: I bought this laptop just over a year ago from Lenovo and recently, the hinge near where the processor sits snapped and now cannot open over 40 degrees unless I bend the base/motherboard (which would snap it and totally break it). This computer also has overheating issues and will run EXTREMELY hot, even sometimes when you are simply browsing the web.
Summary: I ordered the IdeaPad Y410P for it's high specs for a relatively low cost. The first laptop showed up with a broken screen straight out of the box. "These things happen", I told myself. I called Lenovo on Saturday, and was told I had to call on a week day to get a replacement. I called Lenovo's post-sales number on Monday, but none of the automatic options were related to replacements, only to "refunds", so I followed the most reasonable chain of options and ended up...
Summary: I got this laptop with a 24gb ssd and the better wireless card. loving this laptop it is super fast and handles most of today's game. Only 1 problem is that this laptop gets hot. Might want to consider a cooler if you buy this for a lot of gaming.
