Cons: there are few things I would change if I to redesign this product: 1. the hard drive on it very slow every start up I get 30 sec to a minute with 100% disk usage. 2. i would suggest a stronger USB ports mine got loose few months ago, and with little screw driver I managed to fix them. 3. i would ...
Maybe slightly outdated now but still a gem. Depending on the price buy it.

Summary: I have owned this laptop for 18 months. It still works great and runs Diablo 3 and Minecraft with ease. As with most gaming oriented laptops don't forget to buy a good quality cooling pad. Massive hard drive is a plus. I can't review the battery life as I always keep the laptop plugged in.
Amazing laptop clearly not designed for manual repair

Summary: I have had a very interesting year with this laptop before it died on me. When I got it, I was downright amazed at what it was capable of. I had near-desktop-quality graphics on most games I played, the processor was insanely fast for a mobile device, the Wi-Fi was smooth and rarely had problems...
Summary: This thing is a powerhouse. RAM and hard drive are easily upgradeable. As soon as I got it I wiped windows 8 off and setup windows 7 / arch linux dual boot. Having mostly Intel internals most of the drivers are no problem with windows or linux. The only issue I had is with the Nvidia card.
Pros: For the first 6 months, this machine made me overall happy. Good hardware with good response time and a solid heft to the unit. Windows 8 was not preferred but begrudgingly learned.
Cons: The first major point of failure was the WLAN drivers for the Broadcom card after the update to Windows 8.1. The drivers provided by Broadcom and / or By Microsoft rendered the card non-functional. Rolling back to the Windows 8 functioning driver still did not solve the problems. Installing of th...
Summary: When I purchased the Y580, it had excellent specs for the price and even a few years later it still does. As laptop graphics cards are want to do, it heats up on the exhaust and has summarily caused the left speaker to stop functioning but other than that it performs flawlessly.
Summary: I've been using this for about two years now, and haven't had any problems with this laptop. The best feature is that it has an mSATA slot for an SSD. While they can be expensive, this SSD is excellent to put the operating system on for faster boot times, leaving the other hard drive for storage.
Summary: We have all purchased technology at one time or another and walked away with a migrain and not product. This machine performs exceptionally well. The JBL sound is great, the HD Video is 3d quality and the processor is fast. The vendor was excellent in responding to any and all questions.
