Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p (59390909) Intel Core i5 4200M(2.5GHz) 6GB Memory 1TB + 8GB SSHD Hybrid Drive 15.6" Notebook Windows 8
  • Intel Core i5 4200M(2.5GHz)
  • 6GB Memory 1TB+8GB SSHD Hybrid Drive
  • 2 x NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M (SLI)
  • 1920 x 1080
  • Windows 8

Pros:

*Huge 1080p capable screen
*2 750m Nvidia cards with SLI
*USB 3.0
*Cheapest laptop with these specs- period.

Ok I got this laptop for under $900 off of a NewEgg special. The Y510p is better than the Y410p because the 410 does not actually support Ultrabay which makes future SLI options non-existent. The computer has a non-gaming battery life of about 4 hours and a gaming life of 2 and some change depending on your brightness settings.

Cons:

Mouse pad is a little to far to the left which makes ----*WASD gaming sometimes trigger the mousepad to do weird things.
*5600 rpm hard drive is not acceptable for an OS.
*Requires a fresh install of windows 8 to have a good experience.

Other Thoughts:

This laptop comes loaded with bloatware and Lenovo apps that are unnecessary and slow down the natural Windows 8 experience. The first thing you should do with this is get a new hard drive that is preferably SSD but at least 7200RPM and install a clean Windows 8 OS. I ordered a 256gb SSD with the laptop and had no issues installing a fresh copy on it and running smoothly. Second, Windows 8.1 will disable SLI for some reason. So do not install 8.1 if you value this feature. I was unable to get Nvidia to recognize the second graphics card until I reverted back to Windows 8. After everything was fine tuned this laptop is able to run everything on 1080p with high or ultra settings. Everything being Black Ops 2, Resident Evil 6 and SWTOR. I have not tested much else. Boot time with an SSD is about 4 seconds but that is normal. Remember to manually enable SLI in the Nvidia control panel as it is by default disabled.
