Most Favorable Review

Good pricing, but not without cons

Lenovo Laptop IdeaPad Y560 (0646-5LU) Intel Core i5 1st Gen 480M (2.66GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Lenovo Laptop IdeaPad Y560 (0646-5LU) Intel Core i5 1st Gen 480M (2.66GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: -Very good perfomance to price ratio -Good i5 -Radeon 5730 was an unexpected surprise at this price range -Switch to intergrated GPU and undervolt CPU to save LOTS of battery -little bloatware

Cons: -Fingerprint magnet -Dust magnet -Hinges are very weak, screen flexes and bounces after opening -Screen doesn't "lock" shut, and can open slightly when computer is held upside down -Cpu and the only fan are below the enter/backspace key and yet the vent is all the way on the left - Get's hot REALLY fast -Some people hate the option to switch between dedicated and intergrated GPU, when in BIOS, under display settings, there are 2 options, intergrated and discrete. Upon choosing discrete, display drivers went crazy

Overall Review: -If you can wait, get the acer aspire with the gt540m for about 50 bucks less -Again, very good price/performance ratio, actually sc2 detected this GPU and automatically set it to HIGH, which I wasnt expecting
