Lenovo Y70 17, Very nice laptop. High spec

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.

Massive horsepower in all departments – adult styling. 2 design tradeoffs worth noting, but would buy again in a shot. . I bought my brother this machine some years back for christmas and because his was shocking. This is an awesome machine so i’ll list the few negatives first:the biggest negative is the weight – feels about 5kgs but is apparently only 3. 5kgs on the specsand secondlyfor some with an external storage drive the size limits on ssd hard drives – only 256gbs. Everything else about it is awesome:16gb ramprocessors: quad core i7 – rapidssd makes it start form cold in about 3 secondsgraphics card fast enough to run smoothly any game we have. I note for people buying the latest & greatest it will probably only be considered midtable given how fast this changes – and how much a top end card is. But we can run everything we have at max settings. If high spec immersive gaming is your priority or a rig for vr you need to do more research. There isn’t an inbuilt cd/dvd drive which is a minor annoyance as we’ve been caught out a few times and had to zip up stuff and faff to get it installed.

Good value, when you fix the screen flicker. I’m pleased with this machine – but i wasn’t until i fixed a bad problem. It was bought mainly for mult-media work and watching videos at a price i could afford. I nearly sent it back because, after some win10 updates, the screen started flickering and blinking, leaving magenta afterimages on videos and blinking when scrolling web pages. It seemed related either to disk activity or power settings. I tried advice i found on the internet, driver updates, bios update, driver reversion, setting all the power saving off and so on but none worked. There seems to be a loose screen connection defect on some of these but i knew it wasn’t that because it only occurred when certain apps were running. I finally found a post on the lenovo forum that solved it. On the advanced power settings, the maximum processor power needs to be set to 99%, strange but true for me,some clock speed sync. Issue apparently but boy, am i grateful to the person who posted it.

Crap customer service from lenovo though when trying to first buy it direct and also trying to buy a spare battery.

A very fast machine but only 4 stars because it. A very fast machine but only 4 stars because it is very heavy in weight. I had to reuturn it and am now looking at 15 inch screens. Large screens need large batteries.

But not so happy about having the operating manual only on the computer. Nothing but praise for the computer,but not so happy about having the operating manual only on the computer. Developed a problem where no exe files would work,nobody had an answer and still hav’nt,after many fruitless enquiries,please note lenovo,0800,or 0845 numbers are not available from outsideuk,eventually using my old computer downloaded the operating manual and discovered the reset button,now that meant that everything i had done with the new computer was wasted time but this appeared to be the only solution as even the cmd prompt and regedit would not work being exe files themselves,and the replies from the service dept. Still have not come up with a reason for the error coming up in the first place ,i think some one should investigate this error as it seems a common one if the number of mentions on the internet is anything to go on.
