Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 (59359560) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i5 3230M (2.60GHz) 6GB Memory 1TB HDD Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M SLI 2GB 15.6

Pros: It is fast. I can play Skyrim on ultra settings. Sims 3 is a little sluggish, but really it's no worse than my old desktop.

Cons: I cannot make a recovery disk to restore the OS to a new disk.

Other Thoughts: I bought a mSSD along with this. While it was easy to install the card, despite having to take off the entire back of the case, actually getting the OS migrated was an exercise in frustration. The only program that worked (and I tried quite a few per directions given in many posts on the Lenovo forums) was Paragon. However, now that the SSD is installed, it screams. I am concerned, though, since I can't make a recovery that will restore the disk on another hard drive, about eventual hard drive failure.

Pros: It works. It's a good length for a desktop computer.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It's hard to give an in-depth review about a cable. It does what it's supposed to.

Pros: It's incredibly fast. Even though my motherboard only supports SATA II, it still performs on the Windows Experience Index a 7.8. Boot time is lightening fast, which I expected, and gaming is much improved, which surprised me.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: When I first installed it, I was getting dismal performance, and the Windows Experience Index rated it at 5.9. So I went into my bios and changed the HD settings to AHCI from IDE and reinstalled everything which fixed the issue I was having of it hanging every few seconds.
