Got this to replace my problematic Alienware M15x. It had the best specs for the price and I'm extremely satisfied by it. I don't feel like a bought a cheap product. The style of it is decent enough not really fancy or cheap though pretty much all plastic. Performance matches what it should and runs any current game perfectly fine (BF3, Guild wars 2, Skyrim, Call of duty)

Speakers seem to be very loud, probably louder than my alienware was.

Keyboard is a hit or miss, It is smaller because of the added number pad which some people might love and some might not like. I get mixed up hitting things by the number pad on accident but I have to say overall after getting used to it the number pad is great to have. Trackpad seems to work fine, I don't use it much though

Screen is the 1366x768 res which I was fine with, I mean I would prefer the higher resolution but I haven't come accross any time where I miss the pixels really, I would rather use the money towards something else like an SSD.

Software wise there really wasn't much crapware at all thankfully, most of lenovo's software seems to be useful and not interfering.

Battery life seems like to be around 3 hours which isn't to off for a gaming laptop, optimus helps keep it cool too. Weighs a bit over 5lbs and its really not that bad, its comfortable on my lap during normal surfing.

The device never really seems to feel to hot, the vent area is right above the WASD keys which you can feel a bit but not much. According to HWmonitor my temps have reached 90C though when I was playing guild wars 2, though I didn't notice and it didn't slow though it does seem a bit hot, it idles in the high 40's though which is cool enough.

Don't regret getting it one bit though, i've had no real issues at all.

So, i just got this about 2 days ago, and so far, all is looking well! I'm gonna try to go in-depth for those of on on the fence.

Windows 8: Was my biggest concern because of the new interface
A really neat guide to Windows 8 ---> [...]
Actually really cool. Main thing most people worry about is the new interface and no desktop menu. But I found out that it does indeed have a desktop menu that looks just like Windows Vista/XP/7. It's actually an "app?" on the start menu that opens up a desktop that resembles the interface we all know and love. The taskbar is there, you can still create app shortcuts, there's a recycling bin, everything except the start menu, which you switch to by moving the mouse into the lower left corner and clicking. So, basically, it's still the same desktop from Vista/XP/7 with a start menu that has its own page. And if you put the mouse into the upper or lower right hand corner, it has your system settings, system search bar (formerly the "Run as" search box), devices, etc. Everything is nice and smooth. Actually really good, better than I expected.

Normal Day use: Great all around, could be a replacement desktop
Not much to say, it delivers what you need and more. You'll be set for a while.

Battery: Not great
It is a gaming laptop after all, so battery isn't so reliable. Great if it's gonna be used around your house. Don't expect it to be too portable.

Exterior: Good
Like how it looks and feels. Touchpad is nice and responsive. Not really any complaints.

Gaming: The fun yet tragic part of this laptop
Ok, read the WHOLE thing. There's a good and bad part. So the bad part of this laptop is the super spectacular GeForce GTX 660M graphics card. Well, it's a hit or miss really.

I'm writing this review OVER my old one.. on a very spotty wifi connection.

You see, upon the release of Windows 8.1, (allegedly, according to others with the same issue), intel wifi drivers have horrible DNS default gateway name resolution (or something like that) and this results in MANY MANY completely DROPPED.. nay, *broken* connections. It's a real deal breaker. Gee, this amazing graphics card will play some great games!! Singleplayer. Or LAN'ed over hard ethernet. This isn't as much of a "lap" top after all. Perhaps I should tote around an external USB wifi?

Now I question whether this wifi issue wasn't simply exacerbated by 8.1, and was always there to begin with. In fact my original review was already wary of wifi issues and I said (on factory Win8.0) that wifi was "slow to connect". What's more annoying is it doesn't play well with other computers on a network. Often (even "normally")when one connects after the Ideapad, there seem to be issues, killing the local machines connection, but sometimes even causing the ROUTER to grind to a halt. This makes you a wifi terrorist which I'm sure anyone will realize is NOT cool.. given it's normally friends/family you're terrorizing, or potentially worse, those you're working with.

Now it may be that I have one of those amazing government rootkits attacking my machine (check out Flame or "BadBIOS" if you wanna feel paranoid), which has been there presumably from day one, OR that for the second time, Lenovo is offering up a very tantalizing deal which makes you PUCKER 1 year later from the distinct lemon flavor. **

**the previous Y series I owned completely imploded in simultaneous mouse, keyboard, and screen issues, which eventually killed the PSU.

I got a warranty this time.
