Summary: It's been four years, and this laptop gets hotter than my heater, and the hinges can't stay on the cheap plastic case. I will never buy a Lenovo product again for it's construction is not solid. The laptop inner guts like processor and memory are great, but the outside is what matters to a consumer!
Summary: Hard drive no good, can not retrieve info, had to send back to get repaired, would not just send new hard drive. Ended up purchasing a Dell from Dell as a replacement to be able to get business working again.
Bad video flicker on my unit. How prevalent is the problem?
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: Laptop worked fine for about 11 months. It then started crashing with Blue Screen very frequently. Sent it to Lenovo Support, they pretty much replaced every thing but the screen and keyboard. After a couple of months Laptop fails to start intermittently - Display Driver failed to initialize.
Summary: This laptop has been sent to the Repair Depot 3 times for "Faulty Motherboards" and each time the interval has grown shorter until upon the third time, the laptop CAME BACK with a cracked side near the power jack.
Summary: Let me tell you a little about myself first. I am attending a University currently and am pursuing a degree in chemical engineering. I like to take photography and edit videos on the side because I am also creative.
Summary: Lenovo i7 core, 8 mb ram. Cheap keyboard. Display driver problems after 2 months. Tech support has been sub par and dishonest. I have to send computer half way across the country to get a new motherboard because of the display driver issue which will take approx two weeks to return.
Summary: A simple google search will let you know that there are known common hardware issues with this laptop. Works well until it doesn't. Lenovo customer service is unresponsive and have no qualms about asking you to pay for known hardware issues that are not your fault.
Summary: As one of the users mentioned, there is the big cursor problem. Added to this the frame is not very solid and I had few screws actually break out..Definitely not a good laptop for the price you pay for it..Also customer support is very poor..
Summary: Don't buy this item, it`s awful. I bought this product Novembre 7, 2010 and today, Feb 14 2011, one usb port don't work and one of the screen arms its broken. Please, if you're thinking in one of this laptop, see other options.
