Summary: This is a phenomenal laptop. I've been using this for almost a year now with no serious issues. There are 3 things worth mentioning. 1. This is a powerhouse laptop which means it really needs to have an outlet near by. 2.
Don't listen to the idiots, most of the problems are nonexistent.

Summary: Okay, I'm mostly interested in addressing the criticisms of this laptop, because it's honestly the only sub-$1000 gaming laptop and you should not be put off buying it because some idiot couldn't fess up that he broke the screen. First, screens do not break themselves.
Summary: The laptop was in great condition when I opened the package. Shipping was fast and on-time. Seller was extremely helpful via email (Andrew) Answered all my questions Please note: This laptop does NOT come with 2 Video Cards. It has a DVD Drive.
Summary: Amazing laptop, 3rd gen i7, 16gb of ram, solid state start up drive with 800gb storage and a sli gt650 which is roughly equivalent to a gtx670 all for $700......amazing machine. Aesthetically great looking, backlit keyboard is nice, light weight, great looking screen.
Summary: Unless you want to spend the time to build your own laptop computer, the value of this Lenovo Y500 simply cannot be beaten. Here's a bit about myself: I was a diehard Windows guy until I made the switch to Apple in 2008.
