1 out of 5 eggsExpensive pile of garbage

Pros: Thin and light
Pretty powerful for the money
Backlit keyboard, with good feel
Runs any game on at least High
Pretty much everything in the specs list is good

Cons: But, this has been by far one the worse pieces of tech I've ever owned. I've only had this thing for about six mounts and it's been in the shop four times for the same problem and just today its getting worse. I have constant stability and display issues. I'm just done at this point. I'm selling this thing for parts and cutting my loses to go to another manufacturer. I didn't buy this laptop off of newegg but I still want everyone to know not to buy this thing. They're thinkpads might be great but that certainly didn't carry over to the gaming line. Please, if you're like me and are easily annoyed when your money is wasted on something that fails to deliver, do not buy this laptop.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Build Quality

Pros: -Fast Computer
-Good Graphics
-Good Price

Cons: -Low build quality
-Screen problems
-Somewhat bulky

Other Thoughts: So I purchased this computer 3 months ago and it was working fine for a while.

However last week the hinge on the laptop became misaligned and the plastic piece covering the hinge popped off. I tried popping it back in but it just kept popping off every time I opened the laptop. Then a few days later the laptop screen actually popped off from the laptop due to the hinge stressing the screen. This was when I knew I needed to get it fixed.

I called Lenovo's service center, but they outright REFUSED to fix the laptop under warranty. If you do a quick google search there are numerous other people having this problem so its obviously a manufacture defect.

All in all do not be fooled by the nice specs and price. This laptop has poor build quality and will do you no good if it breaks after 3 months. Save your money, buy another laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Laptop

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointing product

Pros: * Keyboard distribution with lights looks nice
* Material of construction
* Easy recovery system

Cons: * Poor Performance of battery
* Really Poor Quality of screen
* in less than year i must use recovery for problems with SSD+HDD
* Almost run counter strike

Other Thoughts: Definitely not a laptop for gaming, may serve to multimedia editing and rendering processes can run, but leaves much to be desired in games.

** Improved performance with windows 10

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy it. My hybrid drive had many many problems.

Pros: Keyboard is nice.
Starts up pretty fast.

Cons: After a few months, the hard drive just decides to get corrupted. This hasn't happened to any of my friends who got the full SSD over the hybrid drive. I wiped this computer over 10 times to fix the hard drive corruption. I highly doubt its a broken hardware issue because everything seems to work for maybe a month or so perfectly fine.

Other Thoughts: Do not purchase the Lenovo Y50 hybrid drive unless you want to suffer wiping your computer every few months. Good luck with that.

Ran on WIndows 8.1 and had problems.
Ran on Windows 10 and had problems.

4 out of 5 eggsNice laptop for the money

Pros: Bought this for $899.99 which is not bad for what comes with this laptop. It's a good looking machine with elegance design. Been running good for half a year now although haven't done a lot of gaming with it. It can handle casual games just fine though.

Cons: the screen feels a little cheaply made, flimsy at best.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Bang For Buck

Pros: Backlit Keyboard
Runs Cool
Great Sound
Well Build - one back panel exposes all internal components with easy access to RAM/HDD

Cons: Touchpad
No quick mute button
Hybrid Drive?
Bloatware!

Other Thoughts: I upgraded to the Y50 from my old Y570 (which was my first love of a laptop). I knew about the bloatware from my old lappy and it was just as bad the second time around, I really wish Lenovo would cut back on the junk. The backlit keyboard can be turned off with a function key which is nice to save battery life, which is average when not gaming, however there is no function key to mute sound which is less than ideal. This laptop runs cool and is quiet even when the fan spins up during gaming. Even with the hybrid HDD in this machine I feel it boots and runs slowly. The back of the machine comes off in one piece and the RAM, HDD and Heatsinks are easily accessible which is nice for upgrades (I always put good thermal paste on heat tubes and you should too!). The sound on this machine is quite impressive for a laptop and the small ‘subwoofer’ in back adds a nice low tone, not talking huge bass here, but it's not bad. The worst part of this laptop is the touchpad. Right clicking is difficult, which is rather annoying. I find the Windows settings bar (the one that pops up when you scroll from the right) pops up when I try and do anything.

Overall it's a solid machine and worth the money as it can handle just about anything you can throw at it. I will say the first thing I will be upgrading is the HDD to an SSD to increase the battery life as well as performance.

3 out of 5 eggsIt has it's issues, but I'd buy it again

Pros: -Good CPU and GPU, and an AC wireless card.
-Inexpensive for quality of components, probably the best bang for your buck for a gaming laptop.
-Very thin and light for what's packed into it.
-Can handle most games with decent graphics.
-Adequate battery life for what really is a gaming laptop. ~3 hours of mild use, 1-1.5 hours of gaming, although it seems to force itself to integrated graphics when not plugged in. Does what I expected and what I need it to, though.

Cons: -Windows 8
-Poor viewing angles and color representation with the TN panel.
-Keyboard cannot recognize more than 3 keys at a time in most situations, which is a nightmare in gaming.
-Came with issues out of the box, had to re-install windows to fix some system file problems that a system file check scan couldn't fix.
-TONS of bloatware. I've always used a self-built desktop, so this was a bit of a shock to me.
-Constantly stutters in games. Some background process is causing it, and I can't identify what it is. The only viable workaround I've managed is to run Razer Game Booster, which is annoying to have to start up every time I want to play a game.
-SSD cache is too small to affect much other than boot time and the hard drive is slooooooooow.
-The "always-on" USB ports are not always on.
-Audio port has constant white noise, which makes listening at low noise levels difficult.

Other Thoughts: For the money, you won't find much better than this. Even with its issues, I would definitely buy it again. If the TN panel didn't suck so bad, and there weren't so many software issues (needed to reinstall windows, bloatware, stuttering without running Razer Game Booster) this would have easily made 5 eggs for me. The keyboard, not always on "always on" ports, and audio jack were disappointments as well, but not enough to take an egg off for.

Once it's no longer under warranty, I plan on getting a solid state to replace the slow hard drive and an IPS panel to replace the TN one. Combined with a fresh install of windows 10 with no bloatware, this should hopefully fix all the major flaws with it. A shame it'll cost a few hundred dollars on top of the price, though.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop.

Pros: Owned for almost 6 months, and I have the 4710HQ model, which newegg dropped, but it's the same as this. GTX 860m will play BF4, Titanfall, Need For Speed Most Wanted 2012, all on high-ultra. BF4 dips to low 40's on ultra, so high is recommended.

Cons: The screen, fingerprint magnet, slow hard drive, and bloatware.

Other Thoughts: None of the cons are enough to drop an egg. The screen is actually really good, if you look at it straight on which is a hassle for a lot of people. The bloatware can be removed easily. I'd recommend if you do buy this, either get a SSD, or a 7200 rpm HDD.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother amazing Laptop

Pros: Excellent build quality. Nice stylish design. Illuminated keyboard. Windows 8.1. Very well ventilated. dedicated Nvidia GPU. On sale sub $1000. Full Keyboard. Really, this is more a desktop replacement than laptop.

Cons: It is true the screen's viewing angles are a bit restricted, but if you're watching video or gaming from any angle than actually in front of it, that I ask...."What is wrong with you?" Not difficult to turn a laptop to have it's screen face you.

Other Thoughts: This was purchased for my son. I already own the 16 GB RAM model and he wanted one as well but opted for the 8 GB RAM model. He is as pleased with his as I am with mine. Both are used for heavy gaming and although they are not the top of the line, they are VERY respectable machines! Also, it's Lenovo (IBM). That in itself says quality.
