worst investment

  • Summary: Do not buy Lenovo's Ideapad series, I own an Ideapad y530 that I bought in 2008 and it is a major disappointment. Although all the hardware is still intact, the screen no longer stands on its own, the hinges are broken and many Lenovo customers have had the same complaint.

Not happy with lenovo

Stephen Witte, Amazon
24 August 2009
  • Summary: We bought the Lenovo IdeaPad y530 1 year and 1 week ago from Fry's electronics for $599. The road for the past year has been quite rough culminating with an unbootable computer with consistent blue screen of death every time it was powered up.

Motherboard Failed after 2 years

N. Patel "Home School Valedictorian", Amazon
24 August 2009
  • Summary: Maybe this won't happen to yours, but my laptop's motherboard failed after 2 years. The laptop just wouldn't start. I tried looking for a replacement, but I only found a refurbished and used for $149 online and with labor cost of installing about $200ish, buying a new laptop just made sense.

Great laptop!

  • Summary: I've owned my laptop for over 2 yrs now. I use it everyday and take it everywhere. I am giving it a 4 only because of the hinges that have now failed and it is a common problem with these laptops, but they are available.

  • Summary: Pros: 1)value for money in the price range below 800$ 2)if you like glossy screens...well this one is very nice. And yes, it's very reflective but it doesnt cause any problems even with some strong spotlights in the background.

Very satisfactory computer for entertainment purposes

Hirudinea, Amazon
24 August 2009
  • Summary: I bought this computer primarily for entertainment purposes and it's handled everything I've thrown at it. I splurged for the nvidia dedicated graphics card which means I can play games like Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines and The Witcher on full res with no lag (even with environmental details...

Saren, Amazon

  • Summary: Lenovo is known for making excellent products, and the Y530 is no exception. I have gone through various OSes on this laptop, including: *Windows Vista HP (included w/laptop) *Ubuntu 10.04 (for about a month; ran very well, just don't care too much for Linux) *Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (my last...

  • Summary: This is my second Lenovo notebook. The first one was a ThinkPad R61 which I liked very much. It got stolen out of the back of my car. So, liking the Lenovo product, I bought a new one.
