Excerpt: Let's start with the pros. The Lenovo IdeaPad Y550 (41865BU) has a neat honeycomb-like design on the top of the laptop. It has a LONG battery life. I like the depression feeling of the touchpad buttons when they are being pressed. There is a very convenient SD card slot on the front of the laptop, making downloading photos quick and easy. Now, on to the cons... The monitor brightness cannot be adjusted as low as I would like.
Excerpt: I bought my idea pad last August 2011, for business use. The product is light-weight and very sleek in design (when you compare it with Mac). I'm very pleased that it's not glossy! I have a travelling job, so after I got used to carrying a tank like Dell Precision - this is awesome. I used it only on normal business hours and took care of it. The product crashed 5 months later and customer service refused to pay for my shipping to send in for repair.
