5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Amazing gaming / graphics / visual editing laptop for the price. Really, it's a steal. I have quite a few friends who swear by Alienware and similar gaming laptops that are quite gigantic and bulky. This thing isn't extremely light, but it is sleek and well designed for what it has in it. It runs every game I've thrown at it without a hiccup or burp. Fantastic display.. very quiet too.

Cons: It can get a bit hot at times which is to be expected. I'd recommend having some sort of laptop cooler or lap protector so you avoid burning your junk if you play with this on you instead of on a table.

As other reviews have mentioned, it does come with bloatware on it. I haven't come across a laptop that hasn't had some sort of bloatware so it's not really a con that is specific to this unit.

The worst part about this laptop by far is the touchpad. It is horrendous. Worst I have ever had in a laptop. It's kind of laughable, for me. Other reviews have already glossed over the specifics of this atrocity so i won't waste my time but all I can say is have a mouse handy. Solves all your problems. If you are buying this laptop for any of the reasons I list above (gaming, video editing, photoshop, etc.) then there's no way you could be functioning without a mouse anyway.

Other Thoughts: I've been disappointed many times by laptop purchases that have seemed promising. This one delivered above and beyond. As a recent college grad I couldn't ask for anything better within my price range.

1 out of 5 eggsSharp edges

Pros: Not sure. Used the computer for 30 minutes and hate it.

Cons: The edges of the computer are quite sharp, to the point where my hands and wrist were irritated after 10 minutes of use. Terrible design. I am extremely disappointed and hope that Newegg has a decent return policy.

4 out of 5 eggsHonest Review

Pros: To me the pro's with this laptop were that it can do a lot for the price that I paid. It is great for gaming without raising your blood pressure about the price! Some people have issues with the SLI but for example I play Call of Duty Ghosts online with a mixture of high, ultra and one or two medium settings and it runs perfectly!

The startup among other things are very quick, which I think is attributed to the hybrid solid state hard drive. This thing does not load everything in the blink of an eye so don't oversell it to yourself, but it really is faster than most new computers. See my 'other thoughts' for more details.

It is also great for watching anything with the Full HD screen. Unless it's something besides the laptop, you will never find yourself irritated due to the wait time on this computer. Some people on reviews of laptops say the screen is weird in certain angles or has a hue to it... don't even sweat it on this one- it's perfect.

The keyboard feel is amazing. The buttons have a nice texture and the layout is smart and doesn't take up too much room and lets you rest your wrists comfortably. The buttons have an optional/adjustable(med/hi) glow with the red lights which looks really cool. You can turn them off though if you're not in the mood for them. When you touch this laptop you can just FEEL the quality, honestly.

I found having three USB ports is more than necessary (especially if gaming) so I'm glad two of those are USB 3.0 ports.

There is no place to put any disks, but that's okay because we're progressing away from that as a society anyways, so having an entire Terabyte is absolutely necessary for this laptop and I'm glad it has it.

I really have to say again, this computer runs games with ease. It's not the top of the line laptop that can run everything at super ultra settings, but I make trade offs. Like I said I play Call of Duty Ghosts (seriously do yourself a favor and don't buy battlefield, get Ghosts) and I run everything on either high or ultra, the maps look great with the SLI graphics and I have no lag, but the trade off I make is running the characters at a medium quality so that the graphic cards can focus on making the maps look great. So everyone will find there preferences with this computer, just don't oversell yourself and think you can run everything on full blast without any lag. But you almost can.

And really the connections on the sides are set up in ways that your cords will never really get too hectic.

Cons: WARNING: You WILL see advertisements saying this computer has an interchangeable slot for a different fan, more memory, graphics card etc. Lenovo does NOT make these anymore and I personally could not find where to buy any let alone find out if it would even be compatible anymore. This was not an issue for me but I thought I should let yall know since it took me several hours to get to the very bottom of this haha.

My biggest con with this computer is that I bought too much RAM. I didn't need to spend that extra money. I think you would only need to if you do some serious 3d design work or movie editing, I'm not sure if 16GB is enough for flight simulators or not... but for what I'm using it for, I will never use the 16GB RAM, and honestly I don't think the other components of the computer could keep up to use 16 GB of RAM.

I know people say "the track pad stinks" and you think "all laptop track pads stink"... well, this one extra stinks. But you get used to it. It just has a weird feel and isn't super slick feeling.

I used Google Hangouts and I was told my microphone through the laptop isn't very great.

Fingerprints. Everywhere. I don't mind at all, I'm not very keen on who cares what my laptop looks like in public. Although I think it looks really cool with the dark sleek look and the red glowing lights, the fingerprints are all over and just make it look a little dirty when it's not.

The laptop only has the fans on the bottom. So if you're on your bed or anything, the left bottom of it will get too hot to touch if you leave it running high powered stuff without letting it breath after an hour. So I find myself lifting up the laptop to let it suck in some cool air every 15 minutes or so when I am on the bed or whatever. But there is a vent on the right side that lets a little air flow, so the laptop doesn't get completely suffocated.

Laptop is a little heavy, but hey- It does a lot of work! Worth it.

Last thing is the power cord could have been a little longer and someone joked with me and asked if the power block was a suitcase. But it wasn't too big of an issue, I just wasn't expecting it and don't want you to be surprised when you open the box.

Other Thoughts: Honestly this is my view on the laptop-
In my eyes I paid a lot of money for it. But it was worth it. I wanted a computer that would be able to play games like Call of Duty Ghosts (Go buy Call of Duty Ghosts... it's awesome) and it plays it excellently. I wanted a computer that would edit videos and photos like it was nothing, and it does. I wanted a computer that would simultaneously load several youtube and not adult videos lol and play them all with ease and it does. Basically I wanted a computer that I could play games with at a good level, a laptop that was somewhat future proof, and a laptop that could do basic to moderate demanding tasks very easily, without breaking my bank and having it look cool... and this laptop is exactly that. I would say this laptop is on the upper end of the 'middle of the road' entertainment laptops. I wish I could buy this laptop for all my friends, so if you have the money and are seriously considering this laptop, I would get it and the additional warranty plan.

Additional notes:
What is SLI and how does it work: Basically there are two graphics cards in this laptop. And they process the same thing. One card will process one frame and the other card will process the next frame, and they keep going back and forth like that. So they basically share the load and each do half the work that they would normally do.
What is SSHD Hybrid Drive and what does it do?
From my research I found that Solid State Hard Drives do load things and retrieve information noticeably faster than regular hard drives. But I also found out that they are insanely expensive in comparison to regular hard drives. Regular hard drives have an actual disk in them and spin, and they are magnetized in a way so that when the other components send it a message it basically bounces back in a certain frequency from the magnetized disk and the other parts translate that. Solid state drives really are just computer chips and I don't know how they work but the important part is that they're less risky and they retrieve information faster and last longer since they have no moving parts. What's so awesome about the Hybrid drive is that the Solid State Hard Drive will remember which tasks/programs you do the most, and will keep those saved in the SSHD. So basically the things you do the most will load faster and you still have an entire Terabyte of memory. So you basically get the speed of a SSHD at the price of a regular hard drive. And don't hold your breath, SSHD's are expensive to produce and they aren't projected to get cheaper for a number of years. So definitely get a SSHD Hybrid Drive!

2 out of 5 eggsTracpad Folly

Pros: Newegg shipping and return policies. Lenovo build quality and form factor.

Cons: The absolute worst mouse pad ever on a laptop in my experience. I read all kinds of reviews that mentioned that it was terrible, I mostly dismissed them. Boy, was I wrong to do that. It is truly awful as it jumps around when trying to click on the integrated buttons. Not having a touch screen makes it exponentially worse. Avoid this product if you plan on using as a mobile platform. I never realized how frustrating it could be clicking or trying to click on internet page buttons and missing them all the time. Lenovo MUST fix this.

Other Thoughts: The battery life is short, but is to be expected for such a graphic/gaming oriented laptop. The graphic performance of the laptop was uninspiring. It did fine, but not as good as I hoped. You can play top-tier games, but be prepared to lower the quality.

3 out of 5 eggsNice looking, fast, and annoying

Pros: Full HD Screen
Fast processor
SLI graphics
Great build quality
Stays relatively cool
Awesome keyboard
Awesome speakers

Cons: The LCD bezel is way too big at the top. This make the whole design look a bit funny. Also, WHY ON EARTH would Lenovo choose to use a shiny bezel around the LCD? Mine came with pitting at the top right out of the box. It also scratches WAY too easily. It looks like Lenovo took a completely separate LCD assembly and stuck it on a completely different laptop. Also, why would you not put physical buttons under the Touchpad. Using a Touchpad with integrated buttons is the worst thing that laptop manufacturers have ever done. Also, the wireless card stinks with Windows 8. It drops constantly and you can't upgrade it because Lenovo blocks you from doing so in the BIOS.

Other Thoughts: The Ultrabay is a gimmick. Lenovo won't sell you half the parts and they over price the ones that they do. I bought an external USB cable for the Blu Ray burner and a hard drive caddy elsewhere for about $10. I took the UltraBay parts off the BluRay Burner and put them on the hard drive caddy. Now I have an extra hard drive in the UltraBay and use the BluRay burner as an external drive. This is the most logical setup IMO.

1 out of 5 eggsWanted to Like it

Pros: * Very Powerful
* Very Affordable

Cons: * Bad Battery Life
* Fingerprint magnet
* Tracking pad is mediocre
* First one broke after two months
* Bad service

Other Thoughts: First one fried after two months. Disappointing, but it happens. So I called customer service. They were very nice and paid for speedy shipping and handling and the warranty covered repairs. I got it back two weeks later and was happy. Then things took a turn for the worse.

On opening it, I was unhappy that they put those labels that are almost impossible to cleanly remove on the case. Next, I found that they had replaced the motherboard (which means that it had indeed been faulty), they had replaced my Windows 7 with Windows 8 for seemingly no reason, and most importantly they had returned it damaged. The expansion bay had clear damage to it. So I was mildly annoyed, but these things happen. So I saw on the sheet they sent with the laptop there was a number for tech support. Here's where things get really annoying.

I call the number for tech support and they immediately start telling me I've been given a chance to get $100. This is the tech support line, so I thought it wouldn't be a scam. It was. They get your credit card number saying they'll charge three dollars to ship the card, but then they quickly say they've signed you up for a $40 auto renewal of their service. They then "transferred" me back to tech support, which really means they just hung up. I immediately canceled that debit card, ordered a new one, and called tech support back. After somehow navigating their line, I was given explaining to tech support when they dropped my call. So I called back. After talking with them a while again, they told me I could send it back in the shop again, effectively meaning this would be a month of repairs total, or deal with a damaged laptop. The call got dropped again. My phone never does that. So I called again and asked for a refund. They told me I would have to wait for their manager to call me back at her convenience to get one issued and it might be a few days. I just told them to screw it and I'll deal with the laptop as is. A couple days later I got a voicemail from the manager asking for my feedback. Today I called her back and got to her voicemail. We'll talk and I'll update my review, but I don't see it changing. To be fair, their tech support people were some of the most polite I have talked to in all my years.

TLDR: It's a great laptop if it doesn't break. But their support was by far the most disappointing I have ever had to the point where they even tried to scam me for $40 a month at one point.

1 out of 5 eggsNo SSD port

Pros: 1) Nice screen (mostly matte), great resolution
2) SLI is fast, should be futureproof for gaming for quite some time
3) Keyboard is nice (can turn the backlight to high, low, off)
4) i7 is fast
5) Buying through Newegg actually resulted in me receiving a laptop. I had originally ordered through Lenovo directly, and after 4 weeks and 2 estimated delivery changes, I told them to go pound salt.

Cons: 1) Separate from the Hybrid drive that comes with this unit (1TB disk with 8GB flash), there should *also* be an empty slot for an NGFF SSD card. Unfortunately, Lenovo doesn't install the connector unless you buy a version of the laptop that includes an SSD card. So now, I own a laptop that could
2) Trackpad is acceptable, but not great. Totally unusable until I removed the stock drivers and replaced with the full featured Synaptics drivers (which includes more features). Why don't the full featured drivers come standard?
3) The case is a fingerprint magnet. I didn't think that I cared, but it gets ugly fast.
4) The SLI broke after the Windows 8.1 upgrade. Had to manually perform the VBIOS upgrade. I imagine that there are plenty of people who would never be able to fix this.
5) It's impossible to buy a separate Ultrabay DVD/Bluray drive. I've done a lot of research, and so far no luck. Lenovo will not sell it to you directly.
6) The BIOS includes a whitelist that prevents you from upgrading the wifi NIC to an ac card (which would be a relatively cheap ~$35 and simple upgrade otherwise). You have to hack the bios if you want to upgrade (which is a bit risky).

Other Thoughts: I gave it one egg because the potential of this laptop is very high, but due to the issues above, it just hasn't been executed correctly. With that said, I think I will keep the laptop because of the pricepoint and the SLI. I am pretty upset about the missing NGFF connector and the wifi whitelist.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Runs anything i throw at it

-Backlit keyboard is fantastic

-capable of running multiple virtual machines and high demanding games at the same time without issue

-looks stunning, has a very good design and doesnt have the cheap plastic feel that some laptops have

-pretty fair price all things considered

-Boots up almost instantly

-the hybrid SSD is fantastic and while it isnt as fast as a standard SSD it has made me never want to go without one

Cons: -as advertised it comes with windows 8, windows 8.1 (see other thoughts) fixes a lot of the problems but i highly suggest down(up?)grading to windows 7 (be warned though as this voids the warranty)

-the touchpad is kind of frustrating but then again they all are

-comes with a significant amount of bloatware but that can be fixed in a few minutes

-does not have a light to indicate whether or not capslock/numlock is on, you wouldn't think this is an issue until you use it for a bit

-Lenovo's warranty isnt the best, simple modding can break warranty but lenovo has worked with me in the past

-as with most laptops with a numberpad the keyboard is a bit more crowded than your standard keyboard

-processor is a little lacking and can be a bottleneck depending on what you plan to do (emulation, etc)

Other Thoughts: DO NOT UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 8.1 >YET<

I HIGHLY suggest downloading & flashing the lasted bios revision before updating to 8.1

5 out of 5 eggsSlow HDD, but good overall

Pros: Great video performance in games, fairly lightweight. Red keyboard back light looks sweet.

Cons: "Hybrid" hdd is not all it's cracked up to be, it's the slowest component of the system. When running on battery the "mobility" video cards drop to very low performance and games are un-playably low fps. Windows 8 sucks, and the keyboard is a bit crowded.

Other Thoughts: Suggest replacing with a normal SSD for a sizable speed increase.
