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 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.
Summary: First, this particular configuration code (59399853) for the y410p is the one that comes with some key upgrades and one downgrade over other y410p configurations. The first is that it includes a 24GB M.2 SSD which is used for caching, and after a few reboots makes the boot up time very fast, less than 10 seconds from power to desktop. Second is that this particular configuration includes an Intel 7260 wireless card instead of the 2200 series centrino on the other models.
Best cheap option for gaming, but apparently Lenovo has quality control issues.

Summary: I bought this laptop about a week ago and I am actually considering returning or if possible asking for a replacement that solves my issues. As far as ratings let's get into it by listing the Pros and Cons **List of Pros** Gaming performance 4/5 So far one the games I've tried, this machine has performed like a champ. No real complaints here. Also, considering I'm upgrading from a 5 year old laptop, this machine is greater than anything I have ever experienced.
Summary: I bought the lenovo Y410P from the manufacturer for a really good price, the only problem i have is that it takes a while to load when you start it up. works great on all the games i play on. 4.9/5 stars.
Summary: Why do I pit Lenovo against HP ,well most computers use standard parts .They don't make hard drives .motherboards and don't use their os .So what's left ,you got it service & price .Lenovo is a bit pricey ,you can do better with HP on price .So I bought this Lenovo around Xmas time .in Feb I called Lenovo about battery problems after only getting 1 1/2 hours on it .Lenovo wouldn't take my word for it and insisted on remotely taking over my computer,they fiddled around...
Summary: Well this is a really cool laptop I have to say. It can carry lots of games in high set. But I can't plug my headphone into this laptop completely and I don't know why. But overall this is not a bad laptop for you to choose.
