Lenovo IdeaPad Y510P (59375624) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 24GB SSD Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT750M Discrete Graphics (SLI) 2GB 15.6" Windows 8
  • Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT750M Discrete Graphics (SLI) 2GB
  • Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz)
  • 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 24GB SSD
  • 15.6" 1920 x 1080
  • Windows 8
  • 15.2" x 10.2" x 1.4" 6.4 lbs.

Pros:

Everything. Something I recommend to everyone - read the specs and you can even get the product manual off the Lenovo site. You get what it says you get. The SLi'd 650m's are amazing. 1080p HD screen with matte finish is beautiful. Keyboard feels great, good response, tactile finish is wonderful and the adjustable (3 settings - off, medium brightness, high brightness) backlit keys not only increase functionality in the dark but looks very awesome. The mousepad takes a little getting used to but is not nearly as bad as some have tried to say. I also recommend getting the 24gb SSD drive as this means your laptop will include the connector for an SSD (if you get the hybrid, there is no hookup for a second harddrive unless they're changing it in the future). The longest I've waited for the computer to boot up is 12 seconds since completing the initial bootup.

Cons:

Just a small quirk but like many other have said, it's a fingerprint magnet. Just be a clean adult and it'll only be a minor annoyance. Mouse pad did take getting used to but once you understand the little things about it, it's a cinch. If you're going to game or even photo editing things, you'll have a mouse anyways!

Other Thoughts:

Something that irks me terribly about so many reviews - people complaining about things they already read about a product in the specs, etc. This laptop comes with Windows 8, that can't be a con since you KNEW it was going to come with it. So again I say, read the specs and product info, everything, and if you see something you don't like, keep looking around. This laptop at it's price point is fairly amazing and Lenovo has produced a machine that has easy access to it's internals!

Also, as with any computer, laptop, piece of hardware, etc, update your drivers. My first 2 steps were to uninstall all included software I didn't want and then updated everything. I have zero problems with SLi thus far and it seems like Lenovo must now include an updated driver for the wireless as I've had zero issues downloading, browsing and playing games online. That said, Lenovo's website was a little difficult to navigate so here is the link to everything software wise (drivers, software, etc) to do with this laptop: http://support.lenovo.com/en_GB/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS035829
This includes all drivers and current fixes (Windows 8.1 SLi fix!!)

So for the last time, read! Always. Know what you're buying and do what you can to understand it. For the price, this thing is fairly amazing and while I fought with myself over spending a decent amount of money on a laptop when I built a desktop just last year, I'm 24 hours into feeling quite satisfied about my purchase.
