Summary: I've had my ideapad y560p for about 14 months now. The machine is great. People talk about the bloatware in some of the reviews but these must be people who've only dealt with home built or business grade machines. Trust me, the amount of extra software on this thing is minimal and doesn't slow the machine down at all. (Curses to you HP & Dell in this regard!
Summary: While I didn't purchase this item from Amazon, I would like to say that as someone who relies on Amazon quite a bit for reviews I wanted to share my experience. Unboxing: The unboxing process was pretty straight forward, very minimalist packaging. The machine is fairly well protected in styrofoam blocks on either end of the laptop. The AC adapter and cord was stored in 2 little cardboard boxes and the user guide was also included (about the size of a CD jewel case).
Summary: Pros: I just received this laptop today. This PC runs very fast, which matches its high tech specs, i7+4g ddr3+ati 6570. Therefore, it basically can handle everything I need to run on it. I tested two games on it, WOW and SC2. Both of them run very smoothly on this machine at high settings. Temperature does go up a bit when gaming, but its quite tolerable. Speakers quality is good. Not heavy as a 15.6 laptop. Price is competitive for a i7+dedicated video cards.
