Its a great laptop

Alex, Amazon
15 February 2012
  • Summary: I received this laptop as a gift for college, and I've been using it for 3 years so far. I have had NO problems besides the battery died on me since I hadn't taken care of it to begin with, I found pretty good replacements for 20 dollars on ebay; still working as well as original battery. I noticed this laptop spills our tons of heat on the left side when I'm playing a game; since this laptop is a gaming laptop, might as well.

Lejunko Y550

  • Summary: I purchased a Lenovo Ideapad Y550 as a graduation present for my son two years ago. I have always used IBM Thinkpad's so when IBM sold off their laptop division to Lenovo, I decided to take a chance with the new company. Out of the box, the Y550 really looks great. The keyboard has a terrific feel. I admit that I was quite satisfied with my purchase. After using the machine for about 11 months, the LCD hinges became very loose.

  • Summary: It doesn't cost a lot of money and it has crazy good performance. Not sure what else you'd want in a laptop.

Started Great... But Quickly Went Downhill

Miss, Amazon
27 March 2011
  • Summary: The Lenovo is fast, looks good, and did everything I wanted it to... at first. I hadn't owned it half a year before I noticed tons of issues with it. Firstly, if the laptop is set on a desk or table, it will very quickly overheat and shut itself off. Maybe I just got a bad laptop, but this was a constant problem with mine. It always had to be perched precariously on the edge of whatever surface it was resting on so the fan was hanging off the side.

This laptop is a real work-horse

J Bride, Amazon
23 March 2011
  • Summary: I've owned this laptop for 16 months now. It has served me extremely well to include a 4 month deployment to the Helmand Province of Afghanistan. due to the hyperthreading technology of the Intel i7 processor on this laptop, there are actually 8 logical cores available to the operating system. I've made one modification to it and that is to replace the windows operating system provided by Lenovo with Fedora Linux 12.

  • Summary: For the price, this is a great laptop. It's super fast, has lots of nice shortcuts keys and function key features, a great keyboard layout, it can do gaming, has every port, input, and device you could want, runs quiet and cool, is sturdy and reliable. I love it. It even has a sub-woofer underneath. Everything piece of the hardware works great in Linux too.

Made in China - says it all.

Anita M. Lahey "percina rex", Amazon
22 December 2010
  • Summary: I have had this computer one year. God I hate this computer. Battery life is about 20 minutes to 1 hour so you pretty much have to leave it plugged in. It makes a horrendously loud beep when it is low. Like a fire alarm. The neighbors can hear it beep so it's a big rush to repower the darn thing. It overheats like crazy on the mildest applications (watching movies online) and then everything lags. I will never buy a Lenovo again. Ripoff.

Lenovo Ideapad Y550P

SirMarxster, Amazon
10 December 2010
  • Summary: Pros: Overall I'm very satisfied with this product, but not crazy impressed. The keyboard is pretty user friendly,color of display is great. I have installed Star Craft 2 and was able to play the video game without a glitch. The sound quality of the speakers is impressive. The Y550P is equipped with a Dolby sound system with give a great crispy sound. The wireless is also very good no bad connection or signal. The battery life is also fair. The price is awesome..

Disappointment from Lenovo

GuitarPlayer, Amazon
17 October 2010
  • Summary: In April 2010 I purchased 2 of the Y550P Lenovo laptops. The specs and features looked great. However, after about 2 months of use I had issues with one of them locking up constantly. I sent it in for repair and the keyboard and touchpad had to be replaced. Then, 2 weeks later, the same laptop started having issues with the power adapter not being recognized and the battery would not charge unless the computer was rebooted.

Stay away from Lenovo - terrible warranty and customer service

Gene Golub, Amazon
25 August 2010
  • Summary: I bought Lenovo notebook 6 month ago in JR music - large electronic store in NY with 1 yr. warranty. Then bought 3 yr. extended warranty. I was surprised to find out later that my warranty status was showing it almost expired. When I called them, they gave me really hard time updating it. They actually made me to go to the store and recover 6 month old receipt for it even though I was ready to present them. It took multiple calls, hours and aggravation.
