Cheap and well made laptop if you are looking for a light full featured pc

mundolap, Ebay
1 May 2013
  • Summary: I dont write reviews but I resell and love laptop computers since 10 years ago, so I'm ready to share experiences. - Overall design, assembly, size and weight: this is not an ultrabook, is a small full featured laptop, the combination of plastic on the bottom and Metal finish is good and helps to keep it light and thin.

Great NB if you can get it at a good price. Keep in mind the screen size.

  • Summary: Pros: It's a LENOVO, Metal finish, great JBL speakers, Lenovo's curved island keyboard, GeForce 640M or 650M graphics (I can play Planetside 2 on medium with around 40 fps), Intel i7 keeps things running smooth and has great future-proofing potential. From the HDD size to the RAM installed, I've got very little I can find bad about this model. Cons: WXGA screen, no HD+ available for this model that I could find.

Good components plagued by quality issues

Matthew, Amazon
21 April 2013
  • Summary: I ordered a Y480 with an i7 3610QM (4 core with hyperthreading), 8GB of RAM, and 1TB HDD about 4 months ago and have been using it heavily since. From what I've encountered, it's a computer with a great processor that's plagued by a bunch of crap that Lenovo has done to ruin it. First, the graphics card, a 640m LE from Nvidia, is total crap. Don't kid yourself thinking you're gonna get lucky and receive the 384 core version.

Am buying another for a spare, love it, love it, love it!

peddler35, Ebay

  • Summary: A fantastic laptop for the price! I wanted Windows 7 and got it, it is hard to find now. The lighted keyboard is a must, love it, the frame is sturdy, battery life is 4 hours, charges very fast and boots up in about 40 seconds from total shut down. This is a very fast computer, no lag time even with multiple windows open, and now after 2 months not one error message! One of the best features is the quality of the speakers and the placement, excellent!

great, but you have to know what you're buying

andy, Amazon

  • Summary: I read many reviews on this product before I decided to buy it, and some of them seem to intentionally try to scare you out of buying this product. I believe that this is a great laptop, but if you have to know what to expect when you are buying it in order for your expectations to match the product you are ordering. So, let me tell you what this laptop is, and, maybe more importantly, what this laptop is not. Value: This is a value laptop.

This is a great product with lots of power for anything you want to do.

gdickenx, Ebay

  • Summary: I purchased this Computer for my daughter for her birthday, she is 17. She loves it. When the computer arrived it was having some Video issues because it was still under warrenty I sent it back to Lenovo. I got it back in less than 2 weeks. The computer is working strong. For the money it is packed with lots of power. When I am ready to purchase another laptop I will be buying it right here.

Awesome laptop

Annika D, Amazon
26 October 2012
  • Summary: I've had this laptop for a few months, and so far it's been perfect. Having no issues at all, and speed-wise it's great. The build of the laptop is top-notch, and I've had Lenovo's before and if anything happens to it, I know it will be an easy process to contact them. This laptop is at a great price for such a new model with an Ivy Bridge processor, and it looks very sleek.

More shady practices and terrible customer service from the masters at Lenovo. The Y480 is absolutely horrid

Samuel Mitchell "Sam I Am", Amazon
2 October 2012
  • Summary: If you check out some of my other reviews it will be easy to see that I am not a fan of Lenovo. Out of all the companies I have dealt with, they are probably the worst - as their underhanded business practices (using poor re-branded GPU's, subpar parts, etc), and poor customer service combine to create a perfect storm of mediocrity.
