4 out of 5 eggsA solid choice, but be sure it's what you want

Pros: -Excellent build quality. Feels sturdy with lots of metal components that don't weigh it down too much.
-Excellent graphics performance. I can run pretty much whatever I want, though perhaps not always at the highest levels.
-Future-proofed on memory. 12GB of RAM is more than I'll use for quite some time, I suspect.
-Plenty of hard drive space
-Love the backlit keyboard (not sure how to turn off though?)
-Side boot-to-bios button (near power port) is an interesting feature I'd be more likely to use on a desktop or a computer I was tweaking more, but still good to have.
-Full keyboard with Num pad and nice feedback on keys. I like typing out work documents with this thing more than on my gaming keyboard. Good click to the keys without being obnoxious.
-Webcam is nice--got me through a previously long-distance relationship. Google Hangouts and skype both delivered excellent video and mic quality.
-Ultrabay flexibility is cool, though I'm not sure why anyone would prioritize anything over having two SLI'ed graphics cards.
-Speakers are alright, though they're already buzzing at high volumes about 4 months into ownership. That seems to be the case with most laptops these days, though.
-Overall, this thing is light enough to get around okay. I bring it to work most days without too much trouble.
-Definitely like having VGA and HDMI output flexibility
-Lit up headphone port makes it easy to find in the dark (and less easy to confuse with the mic port)
-Hasn't really overheated at all--plenty of ventilation even on the lap
-Never had any hiccups related to CPU...the i7 is plenty strong for gaming and home use. I've done some video captures, conversions, etc. No heavy duty editing where I would be able to report on render times...perhaps I'll edit in the future.
-Big, beautiful full HD screen

Cons: -Slower HDD (even though it supposedly has an 8gb cache SSD built into it...boot time and time to actually being able to use the desktop are a little slow for somebody used to legit SSD speeds). Wish I could afford to upgrade the 1TB drive to SSD, but that's not feasible at present.
-Track pad could be less finicky. I think my hands must be greasier than the average person's because sometimes it tweaks out clicks things multiple times when I am just trying to click them once. I suspect it's sensitive to skin oils...
-Button to toggle keyboard backlight?
-Button to toggle WiFi off/on?
-Oh, originally came with Win8. Wiped that and installed Win 7 Ultimate...because Windows 8
-Power brick is big and heavy
-Laptop overall is heavier and less portable than many comparable gaming notebooks on the market today (I was looking at a few other options that were less than 1 inch, around the 4 lbs mark...)

Other Thoughts: Overall, it's a great value gaming laptop. When I sold my desktop looking for something more portable but could still play modern FPS games, this fit the bill. I've not had much time to play any BF3 or BF4 on this guy yet (I did play BF4 Beta, but that was horrible due to some driver glitches, I believe), but I hope to eventually be able to get around to that.

Overall, there are many days I wish I had a lighter machine that I could more easily bring to work, but every so often there is a day when I am truly thankful for being able to play a few rounds of L4D2 on full graphics on a good sized screen. Worth it.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome for the price

Pros: What you get for the price is amazing, the dual graphics cards let you play all new games at high-veryhigh settings, depending on the game.

Cons: The worst part is the touch pad, who was the idiot who designed such a terrible touchpad for a GAMING LAPTOP, you can only click either the right or the left mouse buttons one at a time. You cannot type while you move the mouse around, means no aiming and moving while gaming! ( You can change that in the settings though, but it still stupid that it ships like that... ) Also, at least in my model it randomly just fails, the mouse freezes or easy scroll doesnt work.

4 out of 5 eggsGood bang for your buck, but at a price.

Pros: A lot of bang for your buck in this laptop, performancewise. 12GB ram, dual 750M, and a quad core (eight threads with Hyper Threading) i7 4700M Haswell with boost to 3.4GHz. The screen is 1920x1080 and looks very nice.

Cons: The CPU runs pretty hot, even when not gaming. There's no SSD (or cache that I can see). The trackpad is one of the worst I've used on a laptop, and the speakers sound pretty terrible, even for laptop speakers. Also, there's no physical switch or keyboard Fn key to toggle wifi on or off.Lastly, there's no ultrabay accessories being sold separately at this time, so if you get dual 750M, don't plan on switching it out for a dvd drive anytime soon.

Other Thoughts: My biggest gripe is the fact that Lenovo sells a model of this laptop with an SSD drive. I opened up the laptop to see where said drive goes and what I might need to add it. There is a clear empty spot labled SSD (mSATA perhaps?). However, Lenovo doesn't even solder a connector on the models that don't come with the SSD, so it is impossible to upgrade to an SSD in the future. This is a huge disappointment.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat machine

Pros: -Great feel to the keyboard
-dual 750m sli video cards (playing all the games i like extremely well along with a great looking display with good angles)
-the 4700MQ is awesome at multitasking
-really good sounding speakers
-absolutely the best deal i found, just cant beat the price.
-the red keyboard glow is really neat, 3 settings on the brightness from what i have found
-12GB of memory
-boot speed < 20 seconds (impressive for the given hard drive)

Cons: -does not have a cache ssd
-this is a given, but with the dual video cards you give up the optical drive (not a big con because most smaller laptops dont come with one anyways and you can easily buy an external drive for under 50$)
-i dont like the trackpad, i would rather have a pad with dedicated buttons for the clicks, but this is just a preference and since i'll be gaming with this computer most of the time anyways i'll be using a mouse so this is sort of a nitpick
-windows 8, but im quickly coming around to it.
- i would rather the cool air intake be somewhere else(large vent on the bottom), but with a laptop you're pretty limited to placement.
-battery life, (its a gaming laptop, dont expect more than 4-5 hours doing misc. tasks (2-3 with high performance settings and gaming)
-lastly, the hard drive, it is a 5400 so it is slower than what i would want

Other Thoughts: im very happy with this purchase. i researched my options for roughly a month before i landed on this. I compared video card models and processors, the 750m sli has roughly the capacity of a 770m as far as performance but the cheapest laptop with a 770 is about 500-600 bucks more than this and most of those have the 4702mq processors.

5 out of 5 eggsEverything I Hoped For

Pros: Looks and performs beautifully. The casing is sleek and stylish, and it runs my games like a champ. I get 50-60 fps on WoW high settings in Orgrimmar in a high pop server. That's just ridiculous for a laptop.

The screen is matte (!!!) and puts out gorgeous picture. Viewing angle is great too.

Even while playing games this thing is pretty silent. Though it does put out a bit of heat!

The keyboard is surprisingly nice and the backlight is useful without being too bright. The speakers are super nice and very loud.

Cons: The harddrive, but this is a minor, almost non-existent issue. Though the thing runs at 5400, it's not that noticeable, and that's coming from a guy who's used to SSD raid0's. I'm planning on replacing the HDD with an SSD sooner or later, but for now this is acceptable.

Comes with Windows 8 and not 7. This is more of a personal preference than anything, but be prepared to choose between true UAC disable and metro apps which define win8. I'd also recommend stardock's win7 start menu solution if you want to give win8 a 7 feel.

Other Thoughts: I did quite a bit of research before buying this laptop. Almost gave in to an MSI and at one point an Alienware, but I'm very glad I chose this particular Lenovo. If I could go back in time I'd buy it again.

5 out of 5 eggsWell-built machine!

Pros: - Fantastic matte display. Colors are very bright and vibrant, and I haven't noticed any glare, even in harsh or direct lighting.
- Touchpad issues seem to have been fixed. If it jumps around a bit when you are trying to click, just turn down the sensitivity in the touchpad settings.
- The computer generates a bit of heat while gaming, but it is all exhausted out the sides, the keyboard, touchpad, and palmrest area stay comfortably cool. On the right side, the exhaust is directed out and back, so you don't feel it when using a mouse.
- Easy to downgrade to Windows 7, just disable secure boot in the BIOS, enable Legacy OS support in the BIOS, wipe the disk, and install 7. All Win7 x64 drivers are available on Lenovo's website and work well.
- The button on the left side of the computer, near the power plug, is the best feature! I have never seen anything like it in a computer! I'll tell you what it does, because I couldn't find it online: When the computer is off, pressing this button will instantly bring up a menu with choices to enter BIOS setup, see the boot menu, enter recovery mode, etc! You don't have to hit the power button and furiously mash F2! Wonderful!
- If you remove the second graphics card and reboot the computer without it, you can install the latest drivers from nVidia's website (NOT Lenovo), and the HD video driver from Intel, then nVidia's Optimus technology DOES WORK! Saves alot of battery life.
- During the daytime, the keyboard backlight is still a nice red glow around the keys, and the markings on the keys are white. In the dark, and red lighting DOES show well through the markings on the keys.
- The performance benchmarks for the laptop and specs speak for themselves.
- Sound quality is SUPERB. Definitely a cut above my last laptop.
- Under heavy loading and high temps, the fan is very quiet when running at full speed. I have not heard it yet!

Cons: - Keyboard backlight is pretty evenly lit, but I wish it had a third brightness level. It can be quite dim in a dark room with the display brightness turned up.
- In Windows 7, there is no way to disable the WIFI card with the current drivers. It is on all the time.
- In Windows 7, some of the Fn keys at the top (to switch applications, search, settings) do nothing, and I have not found a way to program them.

NONE of these Cons is a reason to pass up this laptop! It is the BEST bang for your buck. You won't be able to find another laptop to match it's specs unless you pay hundreds of dollars more.

Other Thoughts: - I can't figure out how they can make a laptop this good for so cheap. They definitely did NOT use cheap materials. The laptop has a superb feel of quality. The aluminum body is very rigid, and keyboard is first-class, and the display is great. I really don't know how they were able to cut the cost down.

I was worried about reports of the aluminum body being vulnerable to etching from fingerprints, making them impossible to wash off, even with solvents. To protect the metal from fingerprint stains, I purchased ProtectaClear. It's a clearcoat that you wipe on, I applied it to the lid, palmrest, and metal around the keyboard (metal only, NOT THE PLASTIC DISPLAY OR BEZEL). It did not change the color or look of the laptop, but now the fingerprints wipe off easily and don't leave stains (This is not a paid sponsership, just an end-user comment.)
-Three-day shipping is a real bargain for this laptop! Got here in exactly three days!

1 out of 5 eggsExpensive Lenovo laptop, stay tuned.

Pros: Nice looking laptop that was recommended to us by someone who deals in computers every day for our local bank.

Cons: Laptop is 6 days old and does not work. It keeps freezing up and there is nothing you can do about it. Same person who recommended the laptop says, "Oh yeah, Lenovo is known for RAM problems on every 50th computer". We must have #50. Now we will see if we can get a replacement.

Other Thoughts: Trying to figure out how to send this laptop for a replacement is a pain also. I filled the questionnaire out twice and it doesn't look like it is being submitted. I will have to call during their business hours tomorrow. If we get a satisfactory result in sending it back I will update you all. If we don't, you will also be hearing about that. This is too expensive of a laptop for it to be broken after 6 days of use!

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Fast. big storage, good video performance. No problems with VLC/MPC. Runs silent and cool. Zero noise and heat issues. 4 hours of real time battery sufficient for long law school lectures.

Cons: Windows 8, Windows Media Center requires 100 dollar+ upgrade. Subtracted an egg because it is terrible. This with windows 7 would earn 5 eggs.
