5 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal!

Pros: From my personal experience, reliable.

Great price for a overall decent computer.

Cons: Track pad is garbage.

Battery life isn't as long as I would prefer.

Other Thoughts: I'm new with computers. This is my first laptop and I have had it for over a year. Although the track pad is terrible using a mouse is a great replacement. The battery life is a little short but smart use of the battery saving options can keep it lasting if you really need it too.

4 out of 5 eggsBest Bang for Your Buck Laptop

Pros: -Comes with Window 8 (whether that's a bad thing or not it's up to you). I got used to it after a while, but I still think Windows 7 is better.
-Geforce 635M. Plays league with all settings maxed well, sometimes fps slows in large team fights, but it's not too distracting usually. Sim city runs reasonably well, it's not anywhere near as smooth running as my desktop though. It's just low fps, probably about 20-30 at most with medium settings.
-Boots pretty quickly. 6 GB Ram has been more than enough for me on this computer so far. Processor is really nice for the price of this laptop. Disk space is decent.
-STURDY. I was riding my bike on day and accidentally forgot to zip up my backpack. I fell forward on my bike face that day and the laptop flew out of my backpack and hit the concrete. There wasn't anything wrong with it somehow.
-The finish on the laptop cover is really nice.
-Fans aren't too loud even while playing video games

Cons: -Lots of third party software already on computer; the software is easy to uninstall though.
-I have to reset the wifi on my computer usually once a day. It just won't connect to anything sometimes when I initially open the laptop. It takes just a few seconds to reset the wifi though.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo Thumbs Down

Pros: Good price for a light gaming laptop with what appears to be a good GPU

Cons: I went through three of these laptops before Newegg finally just refunded my money. They all had various issues with them including: critical boot failures, referenced memory not reading and failing, freezing and crashing when using GPU in use. Each time lenovo recommended I just return the laptop for a refund or replacement and one tech stated this was a common problem.

I really wanted this laptop to work out but unforunately it's just not worth the time and hassle and I honestly am questioning whether or not I will shop newgg again.

2 out of 5 eggsNot worth it.

Pros: Specs.

Cons: Everything else. The motherboard broke on me after one day and I had to send it in for a month to get repaired. The trackpad is awful and basically unusable. Windows 8 is horrible but that's another story. The keyboard is okay but not backlit, it takes a good 10min after booting before it isn't incredibly slow, and is just overall a very disappointing machine. I recommend getting an Asus instead.

Other Thoughts: I bought this based off specs alone. Never again. The trackpad matters a lot because I don't want to have to always use a mouse just to get around. Lenovo makes very cheap laptops and they wont have my business again. Especially if it's going to take them an entire month just to fix an issue... and I had to pay to ship it to them? I had it one day... very unhappy with Lenovo.

5 out of 5 eggsplays games well for such a low price

Pros: Great video card for such a low price. It plays the games I want to play at high ratings and seems to handle anything I through at it well.

Cons: Track pad takes some getting use to. I use a mouse whenever possible. Windows 8 is awful, but everyone knows that.

5 out of 5 eggsIdeal Gaming Laptop!

Pros: Speed, speed, speed.
Runs very cool and very quiet.
Ultra-quiet keyboard that has a good feel to it.
Windows 8. I was worried about it before the purchase because of all the negativity surrounding it, but I absolutely love it.
Great price point for such a powerful laptop.

Cons: Windows 8 again, perhaps. As I said, I adore it, but I realize not everyone is fond of change. In my opinion, Windows 8 isn't worse than any other version of Windows; just different.
The touchpad is positioned a bit awkwardly. I find myself accidently tapping it with the base of my left hand a lot, which is truly bad in games like Battlefield 3, where accidentally tapping the pad causes my gun to fire. Also, since this area is where the video card is located, it can get a smidge warm under heavy load. Not good when gaming, since it's right under where the left wrist sets when using the WASD keys.

This is all very nit-picky kind of stuff, though. Still an amazing laptop.

Other Thoughts: FRAPS Gaming Benchmarks (all run at 1366x768) - Min, Max, Avg
Assassin's Creed III (Average settings) - 28, 55, 39.456
Battlefield 3 (Lowest Settings, Multiplayer, Wake Island) - 25, 104, 42.749
Battlefield 3 (Auto Settings, Multiplayer, Wake Island) - 20, 44, 29.027
Star Wars: The Old Republic (Max Settings, Tython) - 16, 64, 33.586
NBA 2K12 (Max Settings, One Quarter) - 39, 64, 59.395

3 out of 5 eggsIt's a LEMON.

Pros: It is just like advertised a good mid range gaming laptop with a decent dedicated graphics card.

Cons: Within the first day after downloading GuitarPRO 6 I had it crash and reboot several times. I finally got GuitarPRO working but cant download the Realistic sound drivers without it crashing.

I have installed Left4Dead and it runs good with the i5's HD 4000 - Cause I can't seem to figure out how to get the &*$# Nvidia graphics card to run instead. Went to the Nvidia control panel and changed multiple settings only to get the same message when booting STEAM "Unrecognized graphics card HD 4000 blah blah blah"

Aslo every now and then when booting up or waking from sleep the screen stays a dark color forcing me to hold power button and pressing it again to kick start the screen.

Im nervous investing anything more into this laptop,I am aslo unsure what route I take to get these problems solved at this point.

Not sure if it's going to last me like I would want it to.

Other Thoughts: It's a good laptop. I don't know what these problems are and if it's just mine. If these problems im experiencing were fixed I would give it 10 stars for my need for it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop with a few oddities

Pros: It is a very fast laptop and for the price it is a killer deal. It has a good sound system and the graphics run most games fairly well

Cons: I am not sure if it is the mouse itself or how it interacts with windows 8 but it is a very odd set up. You have to hold down the right click button to get the options to come up. It sometimes seems to have a mind of its own.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid laptop, horrible OS

Pros: Reasonably powerful, good battery life, well-built, great keyboard.

Cons: Windows 8.

Other Thoughts: I would give it 5 eggs were it not for Windows 8 being so awful. Everything that was easy in every prior iteration of Windows becomes a chore, and the multi-touch shenanigans they tout so much works only half-the time. Great hardware, terrible OS.
