Im in Love

Lenovo IdeaPad - 15.6" - Intel Core i7 4th Gen 4700MQ (2.40GHz) - Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M SLI - 8 GB DDR3 - 1TB HDD - Windows 8 - Gaming Laptop (Y510p (59375625) )
Lenovo IdeaPad - 15.6" - Intel Core i7 4th Gen 4700MQ (2.40GHz) - Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M SLI - 8 GB DDR3 - 1TB HDD - Windows 8 - Gaming Laptop (Y510p (59375625) )

Pros: Backlit keyboard screen (matte!!) power button... power icon with little white dots making it ( idk i think this is awesome) feel of the keyboard ultrabay dual GPU (runs BO2 at 90+ FPS runs BF3 good at high(dont know an exact fps)) LOOKS!!! this thing is S-E-X-Y!! (although it does attract finger prints very much, but idc its still sexy!)

Cons: the hard drive sucks..... takes so long to load and just slow.... i put in a samsung 840 pro 250GB and WOW takes about 10 seconds to get to login and after i type in the password about .25 seconds to load up to desktop. i was waiting for applications to load and stuff with the old hdd trust me put in a SSD and you will not regret it

Pros: looks like good stats...seemed like good construction wished it worked

Cons: was DOA had to RMA with newegg, thank gosh newegg is amazing at that, got all my money back! ordered http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341018 instead been running great for a year now

Overall Review: wish it woulda worked but sent it back and got an upgrade

great upgrade

Pros: fast!!!! my OS loads instantly after typing in password, restarts in seconds. jeez! i thought my old HDD was okay...then i got an ssd haha i love it!

Cons: PAIN IN THE A* to setup! i ended up finding some shortcuts though. what i did is installed a fresh copy of windows on it, and then when i got it all installed i set my documents, music, pictures etc. to be located in my old hard drive so instantly all my stuff was there (properties of the folder and click location, browse, very easy) then i installed my core programs and then set my other ones to just shortcut to my old computer. i put the programs i wanted to load fast and used the most on my ssd and left the others on my hdd. i wish it was easier to do the transfer (btw my ssd is 128 and my ssd had 200GB of stuff on it so i didnt want to screw around with the ghosting) also for those who didnt turn AHCI on in bios before installing you can do it!! http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976 (follow do it yourself instructions

Overall Review: DEFINITLY worth the trouble of installing. and depending on how you do it you can do it pretty easy (i kinda made it harder then it had to be but thats how i am =) )

Pros: Great PSU! Modular!!!! this is amazing! considering i used my old case from a standard compac made about 5 years ago i could use all the space i could get and this helps so much! bought after http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371048 was DOA been running flawlessly for about a year. plenty of power for my system and any upgrades i may do (very soon =) )

Cons: oh idk... maybe that more cords arent modular? oh well...theres like a PCI and a hardrive/diskdrive connector, and the mobo conector that isnt. not a big deal at all i use all but two or three maybe that the cables are long and bunch up in my case?? wait isnt that more of a pro? cuz people with big cases will like it and when i upgrade my case? haha really not any cons

Overall Review: great PSU would definitely recommend!!! My system: core i3 2100 3.1 GHz Corsair 8GB ddr3 1600 MSI Z68MA-G45 Mobo OCZ 700W Modular win 7 64 bit
