5 out of 5 eggsSuperfish?

Pros: This laptop has top grade hardware.

Cons: This laptop ships with crapware.

Other Thoughts: completely reinstall windoze to a new SSD to make this laptop a gaming monster and NOT be spied upon by le-NO!-vo.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Design? maybe

Cons: Adapter or battery idk, something went wrong. Not recharges when machine is on. If you close the lid or put on sleep or turn it off it starts recharge with very low rate. But consumes battery with very high rate, about 2 hour use when fully recharged.

Other Thoughts: Tried to visit local "Lenovo" support. They ask me 300 bucks for service. I asked why I have to pay, answered me warranty is not valid in Japan. Tried to replace or refund to Newegg. Asked me to ship in 2 weeks. (from Japan to USA?) It's simply not enough time to deliver it with regular post. If I pay for faster shipment payment will be plus 300$. Right now I don't know what to do with it. :(

2 out of 5 eggsLenovo Y50 (59418222) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i5 4200H (2.80GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Great graphics card
Great processor

Cons: I could hardly ever get the wifi to work properly. When i originally ordered the machine, i lived in a small apartment and had no issues with the wifi. However, I always had trouble getting it to work at my girlfriend's house. I told her to have the internet provider come check out their setup, but they didn't find any issues. Then I moved out of my apartment, and had the same issues in the small house we moved into.

I sent the laptop to Lenovo for repairs (after a week and a half of waiting due to Lenovo mailing the box to the wrong address), and they said they were able to repeat the issue. They replaced the wifi card (after several mixups with my serial number), but when I got it back, it was the same exact issue. Ultimately, very frustrated and still improperly working wifi, I demanded a refund. I am currently waiting on another shipment box and have all ready purchased another computer from newegg. DO NOT buy anything from Lenovo. Their service and product are horrible.

Other Thoughts: This computer had such great potential. It works PERFECTLY plugged into ethernet. However, if you want a desktop, there are cheaper options. This is a laptop, that will only perform as a desktop if you want internet connection.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Everything but the screen, but I knew that before hand and

had a replacement ready to go.

Cons: The screen is dull and not up to par.

Other Thoughts: Not sure why you guys are knocking eggs off looking for a

solid state drive (SSD). under specifications it clear states its

a solid state hybrid drive (SSHD).

1 out of 5 eggsMissing SSD, Fragile Case, Poor HDD

Pros: Once you replace the 5400 rpm HDD it will perform well.

Cons: It says 8GB SSD but there was no SSD to be found. Also, the 5400 rpm HDD is horrible and is a huge bottleneck. I replaced the HDD with a Samsung 250GB SSD and I saw a huge improvement. Be careful about opening it up though, the case is extremely cheap and can easily crack. While I was replacing the HDD, I very carefully opened up the case and still had some small pieces of plastic break off. Luckily I was still able to screw it back together, but now I know how fragile this thing is.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazed

Pros: I bought this after selling my macbook pro and I must say that this laptop blows the mac out of the water. I have been able to run games on it at high to ultra settings depending on the game. but the GTX 860m is an amazing graphics card in my opinion.

Cons: my only complaint with the laptop is that the trackpad needs work and they cut a corner on the screen.

Other Thoughts: All of my other tech friends are also amazed at the build quality which is solid. a must buy for the price and quality. Lenovo sure knows how to make a laptop.

1 out of 5 eggsMissing 8GB Solid State Drive

Pros: Good for gaming.

Cons: The laptop didn't come with an 8GB solid state drive as advertised. Not sure what to do about that.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid little laptop

Pros: Sleek design, zippy gaming, loads of space, hybrid drive, and decent sound.

I didn't realize how thin this laptop was until I pulled it out of the box. It's really thin and sleek. That said, it still seems like a durable design. The screen hinges are stout, and the overall quality feels real solid, which is impressive given how thin it is.

It is also very easy to open up for upgrades. 7 screws and 4 hidden clips, and you have access to the ENTIRE computer.

Innovative and effective cooling.

No optical drive! - yes, I consider this a pro. The only time I used the optical drive on my previous laptop was to accidentally eject it, then push it back in.

Cons: Windows 8. It's for tablets, not computers.

Many have cited the screen as being a con, and I cannot disagree, but it's not as terrible as some make it seem. Yes, it's best viewed straight on, so it's bad for multiple viewers, but from the optimal angle, it's a good picture.

Fingerprint city. If you want it to always look pristine, keep some wipes nearby. It's still sexy, even with the fingerprints, though.

Other Thoughts: I immediately replaced the 1TB hybrid drive with a solid state, and downgraded (read: upgraded) to Windows 7. I've been very happy with the performance of this laptop, especially given I got the dual-core model. Most games run quite well on medium-high settings.

I also do a lot of LAMP development, and C# development. Jetbrains and Microsoft IDE's are both very crisp and responsive on this machine.

NOTE: For those of you having issues with video drivers upon re-install of the operating system, you MUST install the Intel HD Graphics 4600 driver BEFORE the nVidia 860m driver. Also, the nVidia 3DVision driver component at the time of this writing is faulty and causes blue-screens whenever Chrome runs Adobe Flash (which is all the time). It probably has other issues as well, so opt for 'Custom Installation', and disclude the 3DVision driver when installing the nVidia drivers.

My overall feeling of this laptop is that I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good machine in this price range. It multitasks well, and games well.

Newegg rocks.
The end.

4 out of 5 eggsLenovo Y50 I5 4200H 15.6"

Pros: Great laptop. Very powerful, excellent video card. Build quality is great with sleek asthetics.

Cons: Screen is a weak. Like others have mentioned the screen is the weakest link and can look washed out :(. The laptop performance is 9/10. The screen is 4/10.

Other Thoughts: For the money this laptop is hard to beat. Overall I would recomend it. Even if I replace the screen it is a fantastic value.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat budget gaming laptop

Pros: Great GPU
nice styling and not too flashy
Has all the features a gaming laptop needs (1080p, GPU, options for more memory, backlit keyboard)

Cons: SSHD it comes with was lacking (took 3 mins to boot up every time, i never could figure out why)
Only one 2.5" slot and no mSATA slots
Screen not great quality, only fair

Other Thoughts: This is an awesome gaming laptop when you consider the price point. I got it for $889 at the time I wrote this but I see it went back up. I went from a top of the line monster (SLI, RAID SSD and RAID HD and 4 memory slots, $4.5k) to this to save some money. I had to change out the SSHD, I thought I could deal with it but I just couldn't. Once I put an SSD in the whole machine was fast and boot time went to 7 seconds (Win8 fast boot). The screen I can deal with, and with an SSD it flies in day to day tasks I am finding most of the games I play I can play at 1080p ultra or maybe dial down to very high. Honestly it outperforms what I felt a sub $900 laptop would do.
