  • Excerpt: An astonishing value in a flawed gamer machine with a lousy scratchpad and a keyboard with a mediocre layout but good keypress action. This is a Flawed machine in every sense of the word.

  • Summary: Runs every game I had in mind, including black ops and bf3 and bf4! There is one drawback though - after several weeks of use, the laptop is loosing part of the its "premium" paint. It makes it look trashy. For gamers who don't care about htose little things: this is computer with good price performance ratio!! Definitely happy with it!

Ah Laptop.

  • Summary: For the price, I bought it for $900 Sept. 2012, IT'S GREAT. Now let's get real, it overheats quite easily, sometimes i'm just browsing the web and it o/hs. Quite annoying. DO NOT GET RID OF LENOVO ENERGY MANAGEMENT! If you do, the laptop will always use the on board graphics. Lid has 2 dents, very soft, might wanna take good care of it. The keyboard is one of the most comfortable I've ever used. The touchpad is a bit annoying, esp.

Good laptop, keyboard needs an adjustment period

  • Summary: I wanted a powerful, lightweight laptop that could do everything from office work to running virtual PCs to gaming. Ideally, I wanted something to replace my existing 17-inch gaming laptop, but I decided to try 15.6" as a compromise, and I'm still a happy camper after 6 months! PROS: - Lightweight and good-looking - Fast and powerful - Runs cool - Battery saver feature that keeps the battery at 60% to preserve battery life - Works great with Windows 7 - Easy to swap out...

  • Summary: The laptop is good for gaming when the games are optimized but the main issue is overheating there is only one vent. Idle temp is around 78c which is 150f or so. now while gaming is alot more then that. 8gb of ram isn't enough but it can be upgraded to 16gb 1600mhz ddr3. overall with a good cooling pad and some upgrades this is a good mid level gaming laptop.

Outstanding notebook

  • Summary: Bought this back in February to replace my old notebook. Despite all the ominous reviews I have read online about Lenovo laptops, I haven't had a single problem in four months. The performance is smooth both in working and in gaming conditions on Windows. A minor caveat though: About two days in, my sweaty palms have already left a mark on the palm rest, which is presumably made of brushed aluminum.

  • Summary: I really love my lenovo y580. It plays all recent game on high settings very smooth(battlefield 3, crysis 3, tomb raider, far cry 3, ghost recon future soldier...need 4 speed most wanted....) compare to my asus g51vx I've owned. It come with 6gb of ram, 750gb Hd, 1 pair of JBL speaker with dolby surround and windows 8, i upgrade it to 8gb and tweak the boot up in windows 8 and the system laughs pretty fast. the only problem i have with it is the track pad operation.

  • Summary: 15.6 inches with 1920 x 1080 resolution <- Great! i7-3630QM (Quad Core) 2.3GHz <- Good RAM 8 GB DDR3 <- Okay Hard Drive 750 GB SATA 5400 RPM with 4GB(?) mSATA SSD <- BAD! I don't like this because I struggled when I installed Windows 7 in my OCZ SSD because without removing mSATA, I couldn't install it. NVIDIA GeForce GTX660M 2GB <- Good Average Battery Life (in hours) 6 hours <- Don't believe this... it works less than 4 hours... Item Weight 6 pounds <- HEAVY...
