2 out of 5 eggsSolid. Except when it's not.

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 Touch (59426255) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Touchscreen Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: It's quick, quiet, and does everything advertised. As usual, Newegg got it here quickly. The screen is bright and the red backlit keyboard is great.

Cons: * The touch pad is constantly triggering when it shouldn't be. It's really frustrating to be typing along and suddenly have your text showing up someplace else.
* The hinge cover has come loose after two and a half months. This prevents the laptop from opening and closing easily. Even though it's still under warranty and never been dropped or abused, Lenovo are claiming it's "Accidental Damage" and unwilling to repair.
* Windows 8 was frustrating, so I went back to Windows 7. If you do this, be sure you have the drivers ready to go, as they're not included in the stock Win7 install.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat gaming and everyday laptop

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 Touch (59426255) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Touchscreen Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Great laptop, good built, processor, excellent and sharp display, great sound quality from JBL speaker with S/PDIF audio out. Overall it is a very nice laptop for the price. It is tough and can has been able to handle pretty much anything from games to everyday work in graphics with agility.

Cons: Poor support with Lenovo, slow HDD even with SSD hybrid

1 out of 5 eggslow quality

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 Touch (59426255) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Touchscreen Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: I don't see any pro to this unit

Cons: fell apart with a month, internet keeps dropping out, blue tooth never worked and tech support ended up downloading free software that had a malware on it and it had to restore to factory default to undo.

Other Thoughts: just too low quality!

2 out of 5 eggsI wanted to love it but cant

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 Touch (59426255) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Touchscreen Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Built quality is amazing, feels great in your hands and looks great.
Keyboard is really good once you get use to it.
Touch screen works good (if you end up actually using it)
Doesnt get to hot or to loud when gaming.
Plays games like Crysis 2 on high settings with no lag.
Very fast when you add and SSD in it.
I got good web browsing battery life out of it. (3-4 hours)

Cons: There are only two major issues with this laptop that kills it as a gaming laptop-

The screen- everyone talks about how bad it is, and yes they are right. The screen is just awful, the color is very washed out and the contrast is not there. The Dota 2 Point Booster is a dark gray pink instead of a bright vibrant pink. This makes gaming on the laptop kinda a poor experince.

"But wait, ill just hook it up to a monitor and use it as a desktop replacement" you might be saying to yourself.

Nope, this is the second issue. Lenovo failed to hook the 860 up to the display out, from what im reading it is a hardware issue, not a software issue.
The HDMI out only uses the intel graphics which will lag when playing Dota 2 even. This throws out the option to use the laptop as a desktop replacement.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to love this laptop so much but I just couldn't, Lenovo ruined a great laptop by being lazy. This is marketed as a gaming laptop but fails on two parts, you cant enjoy your games cause of the poor color of the screen but you cant bypass the screen by using HDMI out either, so it fails at what it is suppose to do.

However with that all said if you dont mind color being decent then this is one of the best bangs for the buck.

But if you want to enjoy your games how they should be then look elsewhere and save up another 500$ for a top of the line book.

I ended up returning mine.

Also be aware, I was wanting a good gaming laptop with a touchscreen because of windows 8, however once I adjusted windows 8 to look like win 7 i never used the touch screen again, I suggest saving touch for tablets and foldable notebooks, not conventional laptops, it just becomes to awkward to use a touch screen when you can not have the screen already in your hands.

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic Laptop

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 Touch (59426255) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Touchscreen Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: I love this dang laptop. Its very well built with a sturdy chassis. Lenovo has great software that makes the laptop easy to work with. I love that the backlit keyboard has two levels of brightness. Im a huge power freak. When on battery I want the monitor turned as low as possible, processor reduced and keyboard lite but not bright all in an attempt to make the battery last as long as possible, Right now it lasts about 2 1/2 hours depending on how much i'm working on it. Usually i'm just watching movies or surfing the net. Anyways, Lenovo makes it incredibly easy to adjust the screen brightness, turn on and off the backlit keyboard including two different level settings. Lenovo is the first laptop i've owned that gives me a keyboard stroke (fn+f2) that can turn off the monitor. It also comes with software to easily switch between power management. My only problem with this laptop is listed in the Cons.

Cons: This is going to get slightly complicated so hang with me. The mouse pad is placed slightly off to the left of the laptop. Normally this isn't a problem but this laptop has a feature that if you slide your finger across the mouse pad from the left to the right then you can swap between screens. I love that feature except when I am typing my thumb muscle tends to trigger this feature and can get quite annoying when i'm trying to type an email. I did learn that you can shut the mouse pad off but that really only works when you have a extra mouse attached.

4 out of 5 eggsSo worth the money

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 Touch (59426255) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Touchscreen Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: I love this computer. I'll start off by saying that the reason Why I didn't give it a 5 is because of the options it SHOULD have come with and I would have and I would have paid extra for and those two things are:

1) 9 Cell battery (This is obviously just me... a lot of people don't like the bulkiness... but when I think about it the laptop wouldn't have been as beautifully slim as it is now so it's a trade off.)
2) Hard drive is just "okay."
3) The 3rd one is sound and I'll get more into that in the CONS.

Even writing those two things makes me feel like I should put it back at a 5 because I paid 1050 for this laptop and it was SO worth that money.

Okay now to the actual review and not in any particular order.

1) Backlit Keyboard... so nice
2) Coming from an i5.... this thing is SO smooth
3) Screen brightness goes from incredibly dark (for when you are watching in a dark room and want to go to sleep) to VERY bright for when you need it. A lot of people are saying the screen isn't bright enough.... I couldn't disagree more... I think its perfect.
4) Lenovo's settings power management systems are SO much better than Dell, HP by far.
5) Touchscreen is very nice; I have pretty big fingers and I sometimes miss but its still pretty good for
6) Pretty fast boot time but could be faster if you replace the HD (which is probably best)
7) Dual Band network.. that's nice never had one before.
8) There's so much more that I can't remember... but for the battery size and the power output it stays charged for a decent amount of time... Especially on power saver.

Cons: 1) Bloatware... So much
2) Harddrive for a gaming laptop is kind of dissapointing, but then again you pay low for everything else that is REALLY good so I think it's good. I hardly notice a difference between this and an ordinary HD that doesn't have an 8gb SSD.
3) Sound... Okay.. I came from a Dell XPS L502x (HATE that laptop and will forever hate Dell... overheating GPU problem that thousands of people have yet no response from Dell? okay great.) I will say that the bass from that laptop has kind of ruined the Y50 for me. The Y50's sound management system: Dolby Digital Plus is a joke. I HATE IT. With it turned off... your computer sounds like a pair of cheap headphones. With it on your laptop sounds GOOD if you don't care that much about bass. Unfortunately... I do. I love having bass and that aspect on the y50 is incredibly disappointing honestly.
4) Touchscreen is good but sometimes its unresponsive for like 10 seconds at a time but this happens rarely.
5) Bloatware.
6) Fingerprints on the aluminum is surprisingly hard to get off

Other Thoughts: Get the laptop. It's worth the money... Plays all my games incredibly smoothly (AC4, LoL, Sim City 2013, WatchDogs)

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Successor to the Y500

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 Touch (59426255) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Touchscreen Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: + Best Price for what you get and good for budget buyers.
+ Full HD Display
+ Slimmer design than Y500
+ Very Portable (5.5ish lbs)
+ GTX 860m is Maxwell as well as DDR5, amazing performance on all modern games and next gen.
+ 2x USB 3.0 and 1 USB 2.0
+ Responsive and nice feeling keys on keyboard
+ No screen flex or keyboard flex unless applied high pressure.
+ Soft touch texture around whole keyboard so sweat or stains are hard to appear.
+ Improved trackpad over the terrible one on the Y500
+ 10 pt Touch Screen
+ Barely any heat on keyboard or wrist area, way better cooling than Y500.
+ Hardcore gaming for 2 hrs, heat doesn't go above 75c (Was playing Crysis 3)
+ Improved speakers

Cons: - Lots of bloatware
- Doesn't come with Windows 8.1 CD
- Customer Service of Lenovo is horrid
- Decent Warranty
- Slow HDD, I added a 500GB Samsung Evo and it gets 8 sec boot ups compared to 20sec+ with the HDD.

Other Thoughts: --Build Quality--
The whole build is made of aluminum alloy on the lid and on the bottom. There’s a metal etching of the logo on the lid overall it feels very nice with its hairline design. Of course it attracts fingerprints so be prepared to clean it if you hand carry it anywhere. The aluminum on the Y50 however isn’t as nice as a Macbook Pro or a Razer Blade is.*Here’s the screen flex. The hinges are very durable and won’t give away easily so no problems on the hinges. As for the ventilation, all the vents are situated on the back and near the speakers as well as an air intake on the bottom and may I note it has a DUAL FAN cooling system which most gaming laptops are now incorporating. By having two separate fans one for the CPU and one for GPU, it will increase cooling.

--Keyboard--
The surface around the keyboard is a soft touch material unlike the Y510p having aluminum over the whole design. It will feel good on the wrist and palms during gaming, but will leave sweat marks. The keyboard is very nice with the accutype design, which I’m used to being a Y500 user. The keys are thinner than the Y510p, but still have a great feel with no key flex what so ever. The trackpad on the Y50 is improved over the previous models, but still might annoy people like myself that don’t like the corner pressing which leads to jitter because the touchpad is multitouch.mine

--Display--
This has a Full HD LED Backlit Edge to Edge Glossy Multi Touch Display with a TN Panel. Pros for a TN Panel: They are cheaper, have better response time, and have lower power consumption, but sacrifice color accuracy. In my opinion, I think a TN Panel could be good for gaming because of its responsiveness, but for those hardcore gamers that play everything on ultra, they will dislike the visual quality of the display. My Y500 had a TN panel and all I did was photoshop and games, It had a bright display so viewing angles didn’t bother me as much. With the 10t touch screen, I have to worry about fingerprints on the edge to edge display and that’s pretty much it. Now for viewing angles, it has average horizontal viewing angles and below average vertical viewing angles.

--Temps--
The temperature control of the Y50 is vastly superior to the Y510p mainly because it has a dual fan cooling system and uses a single GTX Maxwell graphics card instead of SLI which frequently overheats the system. The average temps I get during hardcore gaming on a wooden surface with no cooling pad was below 70 degrees Celsius for the GPU and about 74 degrees Celsius for the CPU which is very nice. When the fans are working 100% temps reach near 85 degrees Celsius for the GPU and almost 100 degrees Celsius for the CPU, but only during maximum stress testing. The area around the hinges, speakers, and the QWERTY keys on the keyboard get fairly hot during heavy load. The keys are still very usable. As for noise, the Y50 is almost dead silent on Idle and barely audible during normal web searching u
