Sadly, it could happen to you too.

  • Summary: This is the story of a defective support service, 6 hard disk drives and an empty box. Back in April 2013, I acquired a Lenovo laptop (about $900), directly from the Lenovo.com site. Everything works satisfactorily until 4 months later. The laptop wouldn't boot and the error message points at a hard disk drive failure. Request #1: A quick and pleasant call to Lenovo and, two days later, I receive a replacement drive and reinstallation DVDs.

  • Summary: I'm writing this review OVER my old one.. on a very spotty wifi connection. You see, upon the release of Windows 8.1, (allegedly, according to others with the same issue), intel wifi drivers have horrible DNS default gateway name resolution (or something like that) and this results in MANY MANY completely DROPPED.. nay, *broken* connections. It's a real deal breaker. Gee, this amazing graphics card will play some great games!! Singleplayer. Or LAN'ed over hard ethernet.

Lenovo y580 Bug

  • Summary: This laptop seems like a reasonably priced gaming laptop. For the money it cannot be beat. There is an old saying in the auto racing community; Fast, Cheap, Reliable, pick two. This definitely applies to Lenovo y580. It is cheap, fast and unreliable. I have had the laptop for a little over 3 days and have already started calling it the "Crash Pad". The main problem seems to be the nvidia GTX 660m. The card is extremely unstable.

Nice computer, definite flaws

  • Summary: I received this computer a few days ago, and while I like the computer overall (speed, gpu performance, etc.), there are definite flaws in the overall design. This computer is designed to handle high end gaming, and it does a pretty decent job at it. However, the ventilation is extremely poor. It gets pretty hot, pretty quickly. As others have posted, the resolution is not 1920x1080...which I knew in advance, so that's not an issue to me.

Fast but breaks and stupid restore options

  • Summary: The laptop is a monster and plays BF4 at 1440 x 900 on medium quite well. The screen is nice and the keys light up white rathe rthan obnoxious blue or red, which is a cool touch. That said: There is no backup media. No disk and no download for firmware form Lenovo. I swapped the HDD for a solid state drive and couldn't get Windows back on. Turns out it was on a partition on the hard drive.. which I've sold, and would be a pain to get off even if I still had it.

  • Excerpt: рад что в магазине поменяли на asus 56 vz . прекрасный матовый экран , а какой звук .
  • Cons: звук - колонки jbl - как из бочки . громкость большая но разобрать что невозможно. клавиатура дребизжала кончии пальцев стали неметь . в моей модели он меня еще не сильно эликтричеством бил . клава и крышка ноута неприлично прогибались. после часа работы с экраном full hd глаза покраснели . экран не понравился .
