4 out of 5 eggsLong-Term Review: Overall I'm Satisfied.

Pros: As far as pros go, there are a ton, too many to list here really. If you're buying this laptop you already know how the specs are, it runs really well and is an absolute powerhouse. Some other pros you might be interested in are:
- The Keyboard.
The keyboard is something I didn't even really think of when I bought this laptop. Turns out, it makes a huge difference because now when I use other laptops, I mess up all my typing. The keys are curved on the bottom to prevent you from pressing multiple keys at once, and it really is a bigger deal than I thought.
- Always-on USB
This baby lets you charge your phone when the laptop is closed, it's awesome.
- Keyboard backlight
Tons of compliments, and it's different than most people's white backlight.
- Amount of ports
Has enough ports and different hook-ups than I've ever needed, even with various gaming peripherals.

Cons: There are a decent amount of drawbacks, but I've been able to overlook them.
- Heat
Apparently this thing kicks out heat. You won't notice it, but anyone to your sides will, as this spits out heat on both sides like a furnace, thanks to the dual graphics cards.
- Overall construction
The material this thing is made out of is complete trash. It is plastic almost all the way around, aside from lid and around the keyboard. My back cover is broken in one corner, and my headphone jack fell in and I never replaced it. Just annoying.
- BATTERY LIFE
It is rated at 3 and a half hours of battery life, mine gets about 1 and a half hours. It sucks.

Other Thoughts: Overall I WOULD recommend this to a friend (both of my roommates have the same one). It has issues but overall it is a powerhouse and thus I can overlook the small things.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible HDD

Pros: Overall good performance until the HDD was dead.

Cons: After one and a half year, the HDD started to stop spinning occationally when the system boots up and the HDD could not be recognized. After one month under this situation, the HDD was completely dead.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Most of things were good!
This is a gaming laptop, so I5 is good enough for game,don't have to wast money on I7 CPU.
750M-SLI is powerful for games !

Cons: I just want a win7 system with it. I had so much hard time with win8 system.

2 out of 5 eggsNot durable at all

Pros: extremely economical, most graphical power available in its price range. It was nice, while it lasted.

Cons: When people tell you this laptop feels cheap, they mean it.
It creaks disturbingly when picked up and screws rapidly loosen. Ive had it for nearly a year now, and the escape key has fallen off six times, one USB input has completely failed, the keyboard pops out of its socket, and now it refuses to boot up. DO NOT purchase if durability is of any concern to you at all.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective???

Pros: SLI and works... sometimes! Lighted keyboard, and the key presses are really responsive. My fingers can glide over them.

Cons: Windows 8! Errors everywhere, junk installs EVERYWHERE! I've had to restore twice already and it crashes around 2 hours of straight use. It's a gaming computer and I am working school assignments on it. Haven't dared try to play on it, it's just not happening. I have to go to my pc to finish anything, save constantly so I don't lose my work. It is a giant pain.

Other Thoughts: I don't know if I got the bad one of the batch but after seeing all the reviews it really seems like it.

5 out of 5 eggsBEST value for the money

Pros: *ATTENTION IDEAPAD OWNERS* Press "Fn + F6" to disable the trackpad. Now there's nothing left to complain about.

Cons: Oh, yeah... Heads up, expect bloatware.... Lots of it.

Other Thoughts: Such gaming, very performance, much happy. Wow.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop for the price

Pros: 1 Great aluminum case and sleek design
2. backlit keyboard and solid does not bounce while typing
3. Fast processor
4. sli gt750m's capable of playing many games.
5. 1tb of storage more than enough.
6. quiet fan for gaming laptop

Cons: I read a lot of reviews before buying this and I think a lot of peoples problems could have been solved by updating drivers. Out of box most if not all hardware drivers out of date. windows update did not get these you need to go to Lenovo site for it .

my only cons are
1. lack of external volume control
2. odd position of right shift key for me makes it hard to get used to capping letters when I use that shift key.

Other Thoughts: Overall these is the best value for $$$$ you can get. I did research for weeks before choosing this laptop. I looked at acer, msi, HP, and cyberbook. with all those brands I would give up features or power for same price I paid for this.

The week I got this I upgraded to windows 8.1 and went to Lenovo updated all drivers, and its running flawless. I have no issue with SLI , synaptics touch pad , or design.

I highly recommend this but defiantly update everything before you review it should get a lot of bugs out.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy Great Value Gamer

Pros: 1 Solid Build Brushed Aluminum
2 Backlit keyboard and quality of keyboard
3 Fast processor and Graphics cards
4 Amazing display bright looks good
5 Copper heatsinks and quite fans

I wanted a decent gaming laptop without breaking the bank or having overly large laptop. Very sleek design its simple yet sharp looking I didn't want shiny plastic and this isn't it

Cons: 1 No external volume control
2 Odd placement of right shift key oddly enough hardest thing to get used to if you type a lot.

Other Thoughts: Before buying this I read a lot of fellow newegg shoppers reviews. I suggest people go through upgrade all drivers before posting a review and going to windows 8.1.

I saw a lot of cons I think would be resolved if you go to the Lenovo site and update all drivers needing it. I know for a fact this model is outdated on most drivers. The automatic updates will not do this go to Lenovo for all needed drivers.

Personally I had no issue with sharp edges its the design looks good. I also had no issue from touch pad updated drivers was fine. I don't complain about battery life this has 2 gpu don't buy it if you want long battery life. I also didn't find heat as an issue but than I used older generation processors that ran hot just sitting there.

Honestly the biggest issues for me were smallest thing lack of volume control and that shift key in odd spot.
