They won't load if the clock isn't right.
Wendye
In my case it was that, it was MY MONEY, and I wanted an upper-end laptop for once so badly that it was worth the risk of getting a "headache in a box".
KennyReid
Well, this computer is the best one I've ever had.
Cheetahs rock!

I'm both a manager, developer, and a hobby gamer. I needed a laptop that could take me playing a few hours of video games, or could allow me to sit through meetings and type up my notes.

This laptop has covered both of those perfectly. If you check out comparison sites for its graphics card, you will see that it has about a midrange card (the 555M, that is). This can play Skyrim at high (but not ultra) settings at about 30 FPS (so it may lag a little bit compared to a high-end card, but I haven't had that issue).

In addition, it has this little switch in the front. When you flick it, it will switch between modes. The first default mode utilizes the integrated Intel 3000 card, and tweaks settings in order to conserve battery power. When you flick it again, a little white light will come on. This turns on the nVidia 555M, brightens your screen a bit, and tweaks settings to prefer power over battery life.

I personally installed a fresh copy of windows on the SSD in order to remove some of the bloatware crap that all manufactured computers came with (this one had some sort of McAffee crap on there - gone!). You have to go through some of Lenovo's manufactured stuff to do this, which is pretty simple, actually. If you do a quick search for "Reinstall windows on Lenovo rapiddrive" you should be able to get Lenovo's actual page that describes how to reinstall Windows onto the SSD. When you reinstall it, if you do it correctly, it even preserves a backup of the drivers that you need for everything from the Energy Management software, to graphics, wireless, USB 3.0 drivers, even Lenovo's theatre and facial recognition applications.

Definitely worth the money. I paid $900 for this at Fry's, and I absolutely love it. The only con I have found is that it's a pain to find a laptop sleeve that will fit a 15.6" properly.

Arrived from Amazon in quick order. I was surprised how easy it was to set up transferred programs and hardware. The keyboard is actually "pleasant" to use.....very nice touch!! Very pleased with purchase.

This laptop runs great. It runs all the current games except for one flaw, as mentioned in another review, the laptop overheats quickly unless you set the CPU speed to 85%. No big deal to me though, most games run at max settings anyway.

My biggest issue is with the hinges. I treat my laptop so nicely, and this problem still arose. After a few weeks whenever I open the laptop it started making this clicking sound, and is still doing it a couple months later, then when the laptop is open the hinges are very loose, and the screen falls back on its own due to this if it's at too much of an angle.

All in all, this is a good purchase, especially for the price, and my hinge problem may be just my own.

This laptop is amazing for the price. Have been using it for over 3 months now, and i have to say of all the computers i ever had, it is really nice to have an inexpensive laptop that can run just about any game. No problems with any hardware so far at all.

I purchased the Y570 primarily for business travel and presentation use and have started using it recently as a notebook workstation. I have been pleased in its performance in both uses. The keys offer more space than I had gotten used to over the years on laptops but it didn't take long to get used to the wider keyboard. The built in "number pad" does come in handy in fact I've come to depend on it.

I do wish the industry would standardize keyboard "delete" buttons and such. In this case the "delete" button is in the same row as the "F-key" row, right after "Insert". I keep having to look for it before using.

I love software that keeps my computer tidy and memory available without me having to do it and especially so that I don't ever experience slowdowns due to high fragmentation and poor memory management. But I hate "bloatware" and this computer comes with a bundle of it. In fact, one of them kept popping up a tax prepared service advertisement about every 5 minutes until I figured out which program that was causing the problem and killed it. I feel sorry for folks that didn't get a masters degree in computer science or are not an advanced computer hobbyiest as I suspect these folks just have to put up with things like that which totally takes away from the fun-factor of the computing and online experience.

Last, I don't know what is causing the following problem. I'll be typing along minding my own business when all of a sudden it appears that the "Control" function is stuck "on". The control key itself is not stuck but the functionality is. Rendering the ability to type any letters to "null". The only remedy I've found (after learning nothing after reading the manual and Google searching the Internet) is to reboot the computer.

I've previously owned 3 laptops; a budget Acer Aspire(2007), a "so-so" Toshiba Satellite M205(2008), and a decent HP DV6810(2009) that I actually loved, and would still recommend today if it wasn't quite technologically obsolete.

I feel like with every laptop I buy, I get better and better at picking them. I went from a cheap piece of crap, to a mediocre excuse, to an excellent laptop that lasted well over 2 years before finally not being worth the maintenance.

Unlike most older people that only believe in one brand or company or name, be it cars, trucks, or computers; I am still in the stage where instead of taking anyone's word for ANYTHING, I compare brands non-discriminantly at my own disgression.

Obviously with each generation of laptops, companies are learning how to make them more dependable(not TOO dependable though. hehe) and last longer. Just because my Acer was a hunk of junk that didn't last a year doesn't mean I would never consider another Acer. They make great laptops for a great price bracket, and even some high end machines as well. And the quality of their laptops in the last couple years is extremely underestimated by many people.

My Toshiba. ...Honestly, my personal opinion is my own, and its that Toshiba is my least favorite manufacturer. My Acer was cheap but it didn't exactly yell "Careful! I'm cheap!" every time I picked it up. I picked up my Satellite and I could hear the plastic cracking where space was developing in its body(after about 3 months of moderate handling), and it was as if it was spontaneously combusting. It was falling apart! It actually got to a point where if I balanced it centered on one hand I could feel it bending slightly like a 1000 pound barbell or a soggy sandwich. It still worked like that for a while.
