Maybe slightly outdated now but still a gem.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. Probably the best made computer I have bought in the last 25 years. (Oh, I forgot to mention that the only downside to this laptop is it came with Windows 8. What a mess that OS is.

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 (though I did have problems), and the large amount of storage space always gave me more than enough room.

Great desktop replacement.

  • 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. Hacking driver support together for an M class Nvidia card has been awful.

Good Laptop for the price

  • 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.

Great Product with great service

  • 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.

Excellent laptop

A. Lam, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • 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.

Great specs, build quality was sub-par

Brandon, Amazon

  • Summary: The specs are outstanding, and the software was great with little-to-no bloatware. I actually enjoyed lenovo's energy management app and have been using it for over a year. My only gripe about this is the build quality. I had a dead pixel right off the bat, but there's no way I'd wait for a return. Another dead pixel or two popped up over my year of using the laptop.

I can't really rate the actual computer

  • Summary: I made the mistake of buying a used laptop because the price was right for me. It was supposed to be certified to be as good as new. But it arrived with no booklets, disks or any kind of paperwork whatsoever. There were two stickers on the back with Windows product key's on them, but one sticker had been rendered useless with a big black permanent marker x through the key.

Legit laptop

Samuel Buck, Amazon
1 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought it from Lenovo but its a great laptop. Its fairly sturdy, but it is a bit heavy. I switched out the 1TB for a 250GB SSD and then took out the Blue-ray drive and put the 1TB in with a caddy so that it would have two hard drives.(boots from off in 14 sec.) the small SSD slot is nice but the price of a small SSD is just not worth it yet in my opinion.

A piece of junk

Elizabeth, Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: This laptop has given me electric shocks periodically since the day I first turned it on. The wireless card is completely unreliable ad crashes for no reason, usually requiring restarting it 3-4 times and running the troubleshooter each time before it will work again. Every time the laptop is shutdown or hibernates I have to go through this routine of restarting over and over.
