Summary: Worked fine for about a year but internal battery/clock stopped working so I frequently have to reset it. I can only be off cord power for about an hour before the battery dies. It affects by ability to use websites somehow. They won't load if the clock isn't right. I've been trying to stream Coursera videos, which stream fine on my Dell laptop on home network but no longer work on this laptop. It's very frustrating. I won't be buying another Lenovo.
Summary: This laptop works very well, it is very responsive and fast. Also some have said about the keyboard not being very good but I found it to be the opposite. The keyboard works very well and has a nice crisp key reponse.
Summary: I really hate saying this, but this is by far the worst computer that I've ever used. The specs are great, but the fact is that this computer absolutely cannot handle a program like Pro Tools (which I specifically bought it to run). It's crashed on multiple occasions, once Windows failed to start (which was a big hassle), and ever since the first two crashes it's started freezing whenever I open Chrome. Oh, and IT IS SO NOISY.
Summary: I still am learning this computer. It is great in some ways, but as I said in my title Lenovo is not IBM. They lost a lot when they became Lenovo and it took a while for it to happen. I bought an upgrade to the 3 year on site anything happens warrenty and they did not proccess it till I called a week later. Then I was told it would take 2 more business days to process it and 2 more weeks after that to show up on the web site.
Excerpt: This is a review of Lenovo IdeaPad Y570. The Y570 is a laptop that grew on me from the moment I put my hands on it. Lenovo IdeaPad Y Series addresses especially to gamers, film fans and audiophiles.
Summary: If you are thinking of buying a Y570 with the intention of gaming, please reconsider and choose another laptop. The Y570, while a nice laptop for non-gaming applications, overheats and stutters while running 3d games. The only way to get the laptop to run games without overheating and stuttering is by hamstringing your CPU to only use 85% of processor power. There is a very lengthy thread on Lenovo's community forums discussing this problem: [...
Summary: I've previously owned 3 laptops; a budget Acer Aspire(2007), a "so-so" Toshiba Satellite M205(2008), and a decent HP DV6810(2009) that I actually loved, and would still recommend today if it wasn't quite technologically obsolete. I feel like with every laptop I buy, I get better and better at picking them. I went from a cheap piece of crap, to a mediocre excuse, to an excellent laptop that lasted well over 2 years before finally not being worth the maintenance.
