Amazing laptop, amazing and trusted seller. The laptop is amazing, i put alot of research into this and expected nothing less. It plays every game if thrown at it so far on high settingsthe laptop arrived as promised by the seller, who was very proffesional in his dealings with my problems when the first laptop arrived (unknown to them, it was second hand,) he dispatched a second one that was brand new this time and i could’nt be happierthis product is well worth the money paid, and you get alot for that money as well, this is easily one of the best laptops for its price range you can buy, and if your thinking of buying, use this seller, as he is extremely trusting and helpful if any problems do arise.

Was feeling a little skeptical about buying a laptop from a site that doesn’t specialise in computers, but i am very happy with what i have gotten. Visited computer specialist shops to find the same laptop, only to find they charge £150 more than the price listed on here. Really blown away by how good this thing is, it handles everything. Great desktop for all your applications, use it to watch netflix and play pc games too. It was a little difficult to adjust to windows 8, but it’s well worth it. Does overheat a little when playing games, but if you put it on a raise surface you should have no problem. Had the lenovo g550 before this and loved it, and this was no exception. Well worth the money and a cheaper alternative to similar gaming computers.

Arrived on schedule, no concerns other than battery life seems a little low handles latest games available – with speed and efficiency. Here are the specifications for the Lenovo Y510p 15:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Backlit AccuType keyboard with rounded keys for more comfortable and accurate typing
  • Always-on USB port – use the USB port to recharge a mobile device even when the laptop is powered off and unplugged from the mains
  • JBL-designed speakers supporting Dolby Home Theatre v4 audio certification for immersive sound
  • UltraBay – an interchangeable bay that can be instantly swapped out for dual graphics capability, increased storage space or an additional fan for cooling
  • Metal cool-touch cover and palm rest

Going well for nearly a year now. Does all it is expected to do.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Amazing laptop, would rate it 6 if i could!
  • amazing laptop – shame about the finger prints!
  • Great laptop if you install Windows 7

Amazing laptop, would rate it 6 if i could. Words can’t express how pleased i am with this laptop, it’s nippy and plays virtually all games under the sun, anything you throw at it really. (some maybe not on the highest settings, but in all honesty who cares about the odd shadow here and there. )as other reviews have stated, it’s a massive fingerprint magnet, it’s all over the laptop, it’s really bad for fingerprints, however i just like to look at it as a sign of being used ^_^to clarify, because i was looking for a review which stated this, this laptop does include a 1920×1080 screen which by the way looks absolutely amazing compared to the average laptop screen. Now you’re probably sitting on the edge thinking should i buy it?. Well you see that little yellow ‘add to basket’ button. Press it, because it’s so worth it.

Good laptop but omg windows 8 is bad. This is a good laptop that works well. Great looking and an easy to use and very attractive illuminated keyboard, bright screen with a good viewing angle. 1 upgrade it starts in under 10 seconds too. That is better then my linux machinesthe not so good points:attracts finger prints like some sort of super finger print magnet. The edge of the body where your wrists can rest is too sharp, i cannot use the touchpad for long due to this and need a mouse. Usb ports are a bit close to each other, stops wider usb sticks fitting in next to other usb items. The very bad:it had windows 8 installed – this is absolutely terrible. It is just cluttered, unintuitive, clunky, and a nightmare to work with. I use all sorts of operating systems and this is the worst i have ever encountered in terms of usability and integration. 1 upgrade improves things a tiny bit. It had the uefi type bios so it is difficult to load other operating systems to make it a dual boot computer.

This review is from : Lenovo Y510p 15.6-inch Laptop (Intel Core i7 4700MQ 2.4GHz Processor, 16 GB RAM, 1TB HDD, DVD-RW, LAN, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Nvidia Graphics, Windows 8 Home Premium) – Metal

I purchased this item a while back, the laptop is fast and very pleased with the performance however coming to sell the laptop as it’s no longer needed i noticed it’s only 8gb not 16gb as stated on the description when i purchased which obviously is frustrating as the laptop was expensive. Other than the amazon description it’s a great laptop especially for gaming.

Well made and brilliant for gaming. Excellent laptop but had to return this after a week due to software crashing issues. Seller was excellent and sent a new one out before i even returned this one though. New one works perfect and is amazing for gaming (skyrim/ rome 2 on extreme).

My experiences with this laptop over two years. This laptop looks expensive and has a high build quality. The screen is very good quality, and has low reflection (not quite the best i have seen but good for a laptop)3. Powerful, this laptop’s cpu would make photo editing and video encoding a breeze. The geforce gt 750m in this laptop can currently handle most games on low to moderate settings. The keys on the keyboard are black with white lettering, and have a red edge to them. The optional keyboard light has two brightness levels and the keys light up with a red glow, the light they emit is not distracting and looks nice. The keyboard has a number-pad. The finish on the keyboards keys is not very tough and it can wear off. After 6 months i noticed that the finish on the keys i used most frequently had started to wear, and that light is now shining through small marks / blotches on the keys. I noticed that with the always on usb port enabled, and virtualization support enabled in the bios the laptops usb 3 ports functioned erratically. The lenovo power management software bugged and kept limiting the performance of the laptop so i had to remove it (later i put it back in and the re-installation seemed to fix the issue). A few months later the laptop failed to charge the battery (see bottom fix for this). As everyone else will attest to this laptop is a total fingerprint magnet, so invest in a soft micro-fiber cloth to wipe it down and keep it looking pretty :)recent issues:1. The tracker pad’s buttons have become slightly sunk in, and are now not very responsive, and awkward to use (and i use a mouse most of the time). A serious issue is that the nvidia graphics started to crash so regularly that i gave up playing games on this laptop. (i tried updating the drivers). Fix for the battery issue if it occurs (this is not unique to lenovo)1.

Amazing piece of kit, runs rings around other laptops and perfect for complex photo-shop work at a professional level. Red keyboard back-lighting looks cool but also practical as it helps if you happen to be working in a low light environment.
