10 January 2013
Summary: The unit I received had a very annoying screen flicker. Search for "y560 flickering" on YouTube to see what it's like. I returned it. I don't know how widespread the problem is. A Google search for "y560 flicker" brings up quite a few people inquiring about this issue.
Summary: Pros: - Fast, - Comfortable keyboard, - Connection outlets (USBs, LAN, power ...) in right places, - Light compare to HP comps Cons: - Battery life is relatively short (2-3 hours), - Too many junk software that annoied me and makes computer to malfunction
Summary: While I admit it has passed its prime, this little laptop is capable of big things. Aside from its design that is solemn but also slick, what it has under its hood is really impressive. You just can' t go wrong with an i7. With this configuration I played the latest Need for Speed (The Run) and it just went with it. No problems what-so-ever. I did experience a single soft-related problem: my video card crashed while performing my Windows 7 update for the very 1st time.
Summary: I've been looking for a good laptop for a while. I found an article in a magazine and there was a review of this computer. It immediately brought my attention - its sharp look, great colors and wonderful finish. Plus, I always wanted to have a good graphic card. The laptop also had some movie programs/functions that I was really interested in since I watch most movies on my computer. It was one of the best purchases I've made.
Summary: This laptop has had its ups and down. However, I do enjoy its amazing performance with how it meets my expectations. This includes internet browsing, playing pc games, and multitasking with school work and other associations. I had a a problem last year with the hard drive according to my cousin that said that caused my windows to start up slowly, but this computer just runs like a beast. I would recommend it but its costly though. Take it at your own risk!

Mine has never crashed, and no programs have ever frozen on me, even while I worked on large files, I had seamless computing.
