Excerpt: Its been 6 months since i am using this laptop and tell you what I am abolutetly in love with it. I bought it for 776$ (including tax) where the actual price was around 900 bucks. It was an absolute deal for me. Gaming is a breeze on this laptop. it can run almost all games from med to high settings. thanks to it 4 gigs of ram and 1gb viseo card. The laptop is very stable and the JBL speakers gives superior sound quality.
Excerpt: Outside of the Apple world and Macbooks craze, if there is a laptop that is as stable, then it is the Lenovo laptops. My IdeaPad was a great deal on the lenovo website and shipped to me very quickly - comparable to apple company in every way in that respect. The system is stable. Mine has never crashed, and no programs have ever frozen on me, even while I worked on large files, I had seamless computing.
Excerpt: This laptop has amazing features. But the best I found is the digital dolby speakers. Whenever we have a party I connected the laptop to the speakers and it gives best quality sound. Another feature I like is that it has the HDMI port that gives me easy access to connect my laptop to the tv. We have a lot of movie nights thanks to this laptop. It also has a veriface function, where my face is basically the password.
Excerpt: A little bit about me first: I've been a Systems Manager in the IT field for over 20 years now and have had the opportunity to work with and on so many different systems there's no use counting anymore. What you need to know right off the bat is that this is the system that I researched and bought for my own personal use. So with that said, here's the review: This performance laptop offers fast cpu and memory combined with great graphics processing power.
Excerpt: Sleek laptop, i really like the design. The performance of the laptop is also really great. I used it to play some games and the graphics are pretty smooth. Watching movies on this laptop is also really nice. The speakers are above average (for laptops), unlike other laptops which have very poor sound quality. I really like the face recognition software it has for loggin in. This way i can just sit in front of it to log in without having to type in my password.
Summary: We bought this laptop primarily for gaming and web use while traveling, and it has been wonderful so far! I even use it while walking on my treadmill at home! Its powerful and has great graphics. Exactly what we wanted!
Summary: My new Y560 is a real performer given its inexpensive price tag. My reason for purchasing this laptop is because I have now chosen to move away from the desktop type computer, but more importantly because my other 4 year old lenovo netbook has always performed without fail. To me Lenovo means absolute reliability.
I love all aspects of the Lenovo, it is a dream to work with.

Summary: I purchased this laptop primarily for my university studies after my old computer retired. Not being familiar with Lenovo I was hesitant as to it's performance capabilities, however, it has exceeded my expectations. Having 8MB has allowed me to undertake my uni work with ease as I am required to access the multitude of my study online. This computer is fast and efficient and the keyboard makes lengthy assignments a breeze.
Summary: i would have gave it a 10 but there's no switchable gpu, hope they can correct this with software. where is the "enhanced experience" have the sticker but no hardware. not a big deal. still a great laptop.
