Summary: I purchased this laptop from Lenovo 3 years ago in Dec'2010. It has had some problems but overall I am satisfied with the laptop and its amazing performance till date. I have the same configuration as mentioned on Amazon except for the RAM (I have 8GB) (Note : I have been using a 3D monitor with this laptop and now a 32" TV, connected via HDMI) Detailed Points: 1) Display - Good At a native resolution of 1366x768, the laptop has a decent display.
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
Excerpt: When i purchased my Lenova ideapad in a deal, i never imagined that it would really make my job easy and will save lot of time for me. Its power packed i7 processer finishes anything in no time. its stunning sound clarity and music quality makes it differ from other bench mark laptops. Its lenovo keypad is ideal and soft. I feel it is one among the best. As it has the high end video card, I love to play Age of empires always.
Excerpt: This laptop is a very powerful entertainment machine. It has i7 720 cpu, hd 5730m high level graphic video card, 4g ddr3 1333 RAM and 500G 7200 RPM HDD. And most important one is that it has a 3D screen with tridef 3d technology. With this laptop, you can enjoy 3D films and play 3D games. I can tell this will give you different feeling. You can set high configs to nearly all PC games such as Resident Evil 5, Call of duty: modern warfare, black OPS...
Excerpt: I bought this directly on the lenovo site because I was looking for a fast all in one entertainment system on my laptop. It is slightly heavy but thats also because of the large screen. One year down the line I noticed that one of the hinges has come lose mainly because of the screen weight and I need to send it back to lenovo to get it fixed. It does tend to also just crash and power off without any reason.
Excerpt: First of all, what really caught my eye with this computer was the price tag. An i7 processing laptop for $800 dollars is simply a great deal. On top of that, this laptop boasts a dedicated Ati Radeon HD5730 graphics card which definitely packs its fair share of a punch. It can handle many highly demanding games with ease on medium to high settings. Also, the laptop has a standard 4gb of memory, which is completely satisfactory for 95% of the population.
Summary: As of about two weeks ago, I have owned this laptop for one year. With a Core i7 Quad, 8GB of RAM, and a 7200 RPM hard drive, this thing is pretty speedy. It runs flawlessly and I have yet to experience any of the issues put forth by the other reviewers. The screen isn't as sharp as that of, say, a Sony Vaio, but it looks way better than a Macbook Pro's.
Summary: Aloha, I bought my Lenovo Y560 to have a portable office. I love my first lenovo. PROS: Is fast, does all my programs well plus no problem video editing etc. Is light, very Slim, has good sound, mic works great, love the bright LCD lid screen, is quit even when it gets alot to do. The way they build the bottom keeps the lenovo runnung cool even in midday Hawaiian summer. Love the Keyboard, feels very good, fun typing. Also have no problem with the track pad whatsoever.
Summary: This is an excellent laptop for the price. It has a top-shelf i7 processor and a higher-end discrete graphics card capable of running most modern games at high detail settings. One caveat to mention is that the retail version of this comes with a slower (5400RPM) hard drive and slower (1066MHz) RAM compared to the identical laptop ordered direct from Lenovo. (7200RPM and 1333MHz RAM.) My unit has the faster hard drive and RAM.
