Pros: So, this thing has the Ultrabay, an insanely good idea that Lenovo has pretty much perfected here. The graphics overall on this laptop are INSANELY good for the price you are paying. The keyboard layout is phenomenal, and the backlit keyboard with its various brightness settings is a huge plus. Its very well built, and if you do plan on changing things up on the inside Lenovo is in no hurry to slow you down with the easily removable bottom. The ventilation in this thing is the best I have seen for this price range, the huge vent on the bottom means this thing won't over heat but you probably won't want to be having this in your lap while you are gaming. The price alone is a pro, because the amount of awesomeness you are getting for your buck is HUGE here. This laptop can tackle today's toughest games on ultra and I picked mine up for $949.99.

Cons: So, let's be real. The trackpad on this laptop is less than stellar, and my main concern is the fact that it is a full range trackpad, so what happens is that when you go to press to click, the cursor will often move :/. Also, FINGERPRINT MAGNET! The case, while looking stylish with its brushed aluminium finish, picks up a ton of fingerprints. However, it's not too hard to wipe off.

Overall Review: It plays today's toughest games like Crysis 3, Battlefield 3, Bioshock Infinite, and Metro Last Light on solid 40-60 FPS, making it a huge deal for the price. However, notice how I said TODAY'S games. With only having Nvidia GT 750m, I wouldn't count on this laptop playing games in 2 years or so on ultra settings sadly. Still, huge leaps and bounds for your dollar here, AND DEFINITELY WORTH IT!
