Excellent value for money. . This is a very nice laptop, i bought it for customer demos, on-site work (hence the 17′ screen) and as a ‘techie toy’ whilst i am in hotels. It does all of these things and more. The screen is bright, clear and easy to read, the touch part works ok however i do not really use for that a great deal. The processor/graphics chip work well together, i play elite dangerous in hd at the high settings and i get 40 fps which although s not the best (i get 75 at home) for a laptop it does extremely well and the picture is flicker free. The amazing part however for me is the battery, i have had 5 hours from whilst playing games and doing work on trains, tbh when the spec said 5 hours i was very sceptical but it really does do the business. The bad, such as it is, lenovo, hp and the rest all seem to insist of filling the drive with what is frankly garbage, my example is a program that allows you to log in via the web cam (it measures your face or some such nonsense) and yes it works, but really is typing in a password really that difficult. I spent almost an hour cleaning out the rubbish which left me 100+ gb of space. Over all unless you need an ultra light or a small form factor laptop you could a lot worse for the money (i know because i spent 4 weeks researching which to buy) but as always my professional advice would be make a list of the requirements and the tasks the device will need to fulfil and work from there.
Top notch 10 second boot up, never wait for anything.

Computer is good but do not trust lenovo. They have cashback offers then make it difficult to claim so that they can look for any flimsy excuse not to honour their commitment. Be warned they are out to scam you. So 5 stars for the computer but 1 star (as i cant select zero) for lenovoany other victims want to join me in taking these pr fails to task?. How about you lenovo – brave enough to go to court to ‘save’ your reputation?update: amazon have made good the loss – what a fantastic company. Lenovo are still a lenono (the pits).
Soon as i got the laptop i watched guardians of the galaxy and was in shock how good the picture and sound quality was. The speakers are insanei then loaded up all my music and played poker for a few hours and say the battery lasted 5-6 hours. I have downloaded a few games now on the microsoft games app but yet to play them. I would highly recommened watching youtube tutorials on microsoft 8. 1 if you are like me (clueless to how to do things on the new set up)the build quality is much stronger than i thought looking at the y50 review on youtube so they improved that greatly and also i have no complaints on the screen which i have also read in other reviews but i haven’t started gaming yet so maybe ill see some resolutions problems. All in all the battery lasts longer than i espected 5-6 hours running a number of programs at the same time ie music, poker, surfing web, downloading games. It is the most silent laptop ive ever not heard crazy silent but haven’t been gaming.
Just received the laptop and have to clear up one or two things in the description. 3 inch and feels much bigger. The display is very crisp and absolutely great quality and due to the ssd start up takes no time at all, meaning the computer is very cool and quiet, however i was under the impression when i bought the computer that it had both an hdd and ssd, however the 1tb hdd mentioned in the description instead refers to a 1tb external hard drive contained in the box. This is fine for me as i don’t need the space on the computer, however this is a gaming laptop, and will therefore struggle to hold large game files on the computer. The touch pad is also difficult to click and move around the screen, which is ok due to the touch screen, but could become annoying.

This is a fine laptop (and it should be, considering the price). The best thing about it: the screen. It’s fantastic: bright, crisp and with wonderfully rich colours. Another thing i like is the super fast startup, at least compared to what i was used to with my previous laptop. I have the y70 with win8 and a 256gb ssd. From powering on the laptop with the power button, till you have windows loaded and are out on the internet, only takes 10 seconds. On the more so-so side is the touchpad. It’s ok, but could have been a bit more accurate. At last, i’d like to mention the sound and speakers.
