Beast of a Laptop

Adam S., Newegg
1 January 2016
  • Summary: Id recommend this laptop to anyone looking to game at low to medium settings now days as this is at least a 2 year old design. It only had 6 Gigs of ram when i got it. Not a con then but its now showing age I have upgraded this with a G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB doubled my ram for 35 bucks cant beat...
  • Pros: Fast Fast Fast... Can run all triple a Games even now 1/1/16. Price i got this laptop for around 850 in 2014 and i have been loving the power the 2 755s dish out.

Long-Term Review: Overall I'm Satisfied.

Anonymous, Newegg
28 December 2015
  • Summary: Overall I WOULD recommend this to a friend (both of my roommates have the same one). It has issues but overall it is a powerhouse and thus I can overlook the small things.
  • Pros: As far as pros go, there are a ton, too many to list here really. If you're buying this laptop you already know how the specs are, it runs really well and is an absolute powerhouse. Some other pros you might be interested in are: - The Keyboard. The keyboard is something I didn't even really thin...
  • Cons: There are a decent amount of drawbacks, but I've been able to overlook them. - Heat Apparently this thing kicks out heat. You won't notice it, but anyone to your sides will, as this spits out heat on both sides like a furnace, thanks to the dual graphics cards. - Overall construction The material...

Lenovo Y510P

Saul T., Newegg
7 September 2015
  • Summary: the power supply for this bad boy is monstrous! i accidentally walked over it and noticed i elevated about an inch and a half off the ground the thing is a platform its so huuge! plan on frying an egg on it that it gets nasty hot at times haha
  • Pros: it stomps any game i own right into the ground. can play the new metal gear phantom pain with all on high if not ultra and it looks beautiful! the gt cards are intermediate as far as the card series go but in SLI it wrecks on games like youd think. dual core i5 with hyperthreading is sufficient f...
  • Cons: running dual gpu's will get this thing pretty toasty that its uncomfortable to sit on your lap with but you can always add a cooling pad for it and help with that. nonetheless heat output is expected from two gpus so i guess this isnt so much a con what can you expect from a portable desktop if y...

Lenovo Y510P

Saul T., Newegg
2 September 2015
  • Summary: power supply on this bad boy is gigantic! the largest ive seen! aside from all this i got this brand new for 840 bucks and it showed up in three days with the free shipping (i placed the order on sunday night and received it at my door wednesday afternoon!) you cant beat that!
  • Pros: this laptop is a perfect portable replacement desktop as it can run every game i own at high settings or better! fast sshd combo which boots up from off to desktop in about 8 seconds. (could be faster if i didnt have to type a password in everytime but thats beside the point) i5 4200m processor i...
  • Cons: gets hot even with a cooling pad but what can you expect when packing two video cards in this. not so much a con cause if you dont like it you have the option to swap it out for more cooling, ram or storage space which is a very big plus! SLI wont work unless youre plugged into power otherwise it...

Worst item ever

Fedex, Amazon
22 July 2015
  • Summary: This is the worst computer I ever bought, don't do it. I just lost my warranty and the computer is no longer working, it doesn't even star. not able to do nothing, just died. It happens before, but i was able to fix it by myself.. and now that there is nothing else to do, I'm out of warranty.

It makes me feel like I'm in the future

Mitchell Sanchez, Amazon
6 July 2015
  • Summary: Compared to what I had before this thing is a beast. As far as gaming, I havent done anything too intense with it, I played star citizen at 720p and it worked well, runs new vegas and the most recent deus ex just fine. Its quick to boot up and I just havent had any problems with it.

Good specs but has endurance issues

chess & checkers, Amazon
22 April 2015
  • Summary: I don't normally write reviews, but the sheer poor quality of this laptop compelled me to warn other customers. After only 1.5 years of use, the Y510P has been rendered completely useless.
