Summary: The experiment continues. Lenovo's IdeaPad Y500 made quite a splash when it was introduced some time ago: the 15-inch multi-purpose system offered a second Nvidia GPU as an option.

Excerpt: Forget the staid, buttoned-down ThinkPads. Lenovo's first consumer notebook has the same solid construction with casual Friday looks—at an attractive price point. But a too-glossy screen, an absent HDMI port, and poor battery life hamper this otherwise winning package.
Conclusion: The Y510-300 is a fairy decent all-purpose notebook suitable for those with a strong budget and an eye for design. With good connectivity and strong hardware performance, just make sure you use the D drive after purchase.
Pros: Attractive design, good sound and connectivity, built-in webcam
Cons: Limited viewing angle, facial recognition is not a viable security measure and One Key Recovery can cause problems for novice users due to inconvenient partitioning
Excerpt: Når du åbner til den 15,6 tommer store skærm kommer et stort tastatur til syne – med røde LED-pærer, som endda kan skiftes til anden farve.
