I searched for a great length of time to find the best laptop that fit my needs: portability, gaming, school, and aesthetics.

I believe that this laptop I purchased meets all of these requirements exceedingly well. The build quality is solid, and the soft touch material is very comfortable to type on. As for portability, it is pretty lightweight considering it IS a gaming laptop with a 15.6" screen built in.

When you first get this laptop, expect a lot of bloatware to remove. For me, I just went ahead and did a clean re-install of Windows 8.1 and reinstalled the ones I needed. Conveniently for me, all of the drivers are included in another partitioned drive, so that made it easier. Although it was a pain to update the NVIDIA driver to the latest, it wasn't a very big deal. What I did was Youtube "Update your Lenovo Y50 NVIDIA Drivers" by uploader Bee Ho and follow his instructions. Smooth sailing after that.

On average, I was able to achieve approximately 4 hours and 30 minutes with light usage, such as browsing the web, word processing and the like with power saving battery usage. Brightness down to one above the lowest setting. However, the battery performance while I was gaming dropped significantly. From 4:30 hours to a mere 2 hour battery life while playing games. My testing only included Portal 2, League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth, and Path of Exile. However, I am not disappointed at all given this laptop's powerful hardware.

The curved (red) backlit keyboard looks amazing especially with the black body surrounding it. The keys feel very satisfying to type on, and the keys are very well spaced out.

Just got mine in and immediately upgraded it to 16gb RAM and a Samsung Evo SSD.

The PC out of the box was nice, but once upgrade this thing is amazing. SSD makes the difference. the stock HDD is slow for the first few boots while it builds out the SSD portion with the needed files.

Few things to note for those interested. the machine DOES INCLUDE an external USB DVD+/-RW Drive. it is a rebranded LG GP60BN50. Also, this is an 8GB (2x4GB) system. Some of the videos online were showing a single 8GB chip but that is not how mine was. SSD and Ram upgrade is very simple. Remove 12 screws, plus 4 for the HDD caddy and 4 for the HDD itself.

Overall i am satisfied with the price I paid as the RAM and SSD i already had around from some work related items.

As someone who has been using this laptop for all around purposes. I find this laptop perfect for all of them, but there are a few cons, but the pros of this laptop outweigh the cons, especially considering that many things like the screen, hard drive, and amount of RAM can be changed without too much trouble.

The Screen - In my opinion the screen isn't as bad as people make it out to be, yes the colors are a bit washed out but it is still a good enough screen to get by with and if I ever want to change it, there are plenty of YouTube videos showing how to do it and where to buy the new panel. Secondly the viewing angles aren't as great as a IPS panel but they are still not terrible. I can see everything just fine looking at it from a good bit off center.

The Speakers - The speakers on this laptop are great. They deliver clear sound as well as really loud sound. For me, at least, a comfortable level for the speakers where it isn't too loud or too quiet is at around 30-40% volume.

Battery - The battery life is decent I have been able to achieve 3-4 1/2 hours of battery life on average on day to day tasks like browsing the web and watching YouTube. But the battery recharges very quickly. For me it takes around 2-3 hours but there is a setting to charge the battery from dead to full in only 120 minutes.

Trackpad - the trackpad isnt that bad, for me it is good enough to use for times when I don't have a mouse available when I am on the go.

Where to start? This laptop has quite a reputation should you Google it. The leading problem is the screen. I can't deny the screen has issues. The colors lack and unless you're viewing this straight on, one might confuse this beefy laptop for a entry level laptop.

Beyond the screen, which is amazingly easy to replace and takes less than 5 minutes. This laptop is one of the best mid-level laptops available. Like most I would replace the screen. Amazon offers an great replacement (AU OPTRONICS B156HAN01.1 LAPTOP LCD SCREEN 15.6" Full-HD DIODE) and you can search Youtube.com for easy to follow instructions. If you choose to stay with the default screen I would easily say the screen is not as bad as some have made it out to be. It's average at best. To say it's worse than that would simply be dramatic. Just be prepared to have the brightness turned up to 100.

Now that we are past the major issue with the laptop, we can get into the rest.
With an i7-4700HQ processor this laptop is fast. The benchmarks make this the second best CPU based on value and price. Shipping with 8 gigabytes of RAM is nice and most will not need to upgrade to 16 gb RAM unless they are doing Photoshop, video editing, or any other high resource programs.
The GTX 860m is a great video card. While not a high level card, the 860m brings power without lots of heat. Through my own experiences the left side of the keypad will get slightly warm, but not hot. While running Metro Last Light on ultra settings (1980 x 1080) I experienced no heat related issues as the venting and fan system is great. Similar to the Macbooks/Macbook Pros the exhaust is built under the screen.
While shipping with a very nice hybrid 1 terabyte drive, I upgraded mine with a 128 gb SSD for gaming.
