Summary: I have owned this laptop for well over a year now and I haven't had the best experience with it, but it has been functional enough for continued use. We'll start with the good. PROS: - The speakers on this computer are impressive, really. Being sort of an audiophile and highly critical of most laptop speakers, the JBLs in this model do a fine job and then some.
Summary: This is a great laptop. I've hat it for the better part of a year now and it was a great bargain. The processor is fast, the memory, well I want more memory... Fortunately it's cheap. =) My main problem with it is that the screen is a laptop screen. It's only a 1366 x 768 screen. These days laptops really should be 1080 high. But even with that issue, I would still buy another one of these laptops. **Edit** This laptop is not well put together.
Summary: Got this machine for my daughter who was ready to go off to college in Aug 2010. We had little time to do much tweaking before she left other than strip out the Lenovo bloat. It was fast and seemed to be just the ticket. Then she started mentioning an infamous "big pointer" issue and more frequent BSOD. After two semesters of college, two of the flimsy keys are missing and there are two one-pixel vertical lines running down the left side of the monitor.
Summary: I bought Lenovo Ideapad Y560 M330 Intel Core i3 @ 2.13GHZ with a 64 bit Windows7 operating system in 2010 June. The Alt key on the keyboard got off the keyboard after first 5 months and there was no easy replacement and fix. Its still like that. Face recognition and other features looks attractive but you do not use on a day to day basis. You want to keep simple and not pay for these features. Click button on mouse pad is really bad.
Summary: Let me start off by saying that this is a very fast computer. I7 makes it a blaze and with 4 gigs of ram it holds its on on any advanced program or game. The videocard in it is more than enough to run Modern Warfare 2 at some high settings and it'll run most things without a hitch. It is relatively slim as a desktop replacement laptop. I categorize it as a desktop replacement for a few reasons I'll explain later on.
