First off, I want to thank Amazon for their amazing service once again. Ordered this laptop with prime and got it in 2 days. I was going to pull the trigger on the Lenovo website but now I'm glad I didn't. People on the forums are complaining their units kept being delayed... for even months!

Okay, lets get into the computer.

Un-boxed it, first thing I noticed was how nice it looked out the box, build quality was above average and looked great. Much better than the HP DV6T Quad that I returned due to terrible quality control and build quality on that thing was atrocious!

Powered it up and wow the screen is gorgeous. Beautiful glossy display, in FULL HD 1920x1080 of awesomeness. Viewing angles are great, colors pop and blacks are deep making a very rich viewing experience. The screen is very comparable to the DV6T FHD screen which I also loved, viewing angles can't quite match a quality IPS but it's close. This is subjective but one of the main selling points for me would be the gloss screen. Ever wonder why the displays on Macbooks and iMacs ect are so amazing and colors are so rich and vibrant? A big reason for that is the glossy overlay.

Keyboard and mouse feels literally 10x better than the DV6T, the touchpad clicks registered nicely, almost Macbook like. The tracking is great, keyboard travel is just right with just the right amount of feedback for you fast typists. Backlit keys are a great feature to have. No complaints here. Love the input combo.

Make no mistake by it's appearance on the outside, though it may look like any other normal multimedia laptop, inside is the guts of a MONSTER. This baby will run neck and neck with custom Sager's and Alienwares costing twice as much!

This computer is just awesome. It has very nice specs considering the price. Overall, this computer has handled everything I have thrown at it, which includes: Crysis, Ableton, and Photoshop. Aesthetically speaking, this computer looks very nice with it's gunmetal finish, very classy. The screen on this computer is flawless, especially with 1920x1080p. It looks just like the retina display on the new mac book pro. The JBL speakers do nice work to any music (mind you they have actual sub-woofers.) The webcam is also very nice, with a nice 720p output. The i7 processor can be overclocked, which allows it to multitask with easy. I have had no problems with this computer and is a very good competitor to the new mac book pro. So, if you want performance with a sleek design and at an affordable price, this is the ultimate laptop!

This computer is fast and has amazing speakers. The display, however, started to show deadpixels. I believe this problem is because of the too fragile display, with which i had to play around to 'fix' the problem temporarily. I have returned the item because of this problem only. All other aspects of the computer are very good.

I expected higher quality construction/assembling from lenovo.

I've lived with this laptop for a few weeks now and I can honestly say that it's brilliant. 2 Gripes are that glossy screen (Colors pop more but I know a lot of people prefer that matte screens) and the 5400rpm speed of the Hard-drive. My computer boots in less than a minute and is an absolute powerhouse through games, Blu-rays, and at amazons price which was far below the competition you really can't do better for your money. If nothing else, Lenovo is known for build quality and makes the best keyboard in the business. You really can't go wrong with the sub $1000.00 price.

Found there are some reviews grossly off mark when I finally have it in my hand. here is my take:
1) The build quality is solid with anodized rose-golden metal backing and inside. No keyboard reflex while typing.
2) The keyboard layout takes some time to get used to. The keys are a bit too small.
3) Very little heat or noise dissipation while surfing the net, unlike my 3-yr-old mbp.
4) The screen is bright and clear from wide angles, A+.
5) It weighs maybe even lighter than my 15" mbp, which is decent.
6) To my surprise, very few bloatwares installed if any.
7) heard it's lighting fast with mSATA. Can't wait to try it out.

Great looking...FULL HD screen ... Nice color and looks ... What I don't like is the POWER DVD 10 that comes with the laptop; it is very old and I cannot PAUSE my blu-ray movies, if I do then the program will freeze and the operating system (Windows 7) will not recognized the blu-ray player anymore. Worst than that is the power supply connector ... it looks and feels SO FRAGILE ... instead of using a stronger one or having the connector in the back, Lenovo decided to put the connector on the right hand side of the laptop. The connector has an "L" shape that seems it will break in the future. I see some other people complaining about this connector.

I've been using this for about two years now, and haven't had any problems with this laptop. The best feature is that it has an mSATA slot for an SSD. While they can be expensive, this SSD is excellent to put the operating system on for faster boot times, leaving the other hard drive for storage.
