I purchased the IdeaPad Y580 model 59359513 directly from Lenovo. It came with a 1TB HDD, 8GB of RAM, a Blu-Rady/DVD-RW optical drive, and no mSATA. It replaced a 6-year-old ThinkPad T60p. I have been using my Y580 since late December, 2012. So far, it has been a very good computer.

The Good:
Fast Processor
Great graphics card
Beautiful full-HD display
Blu-Ray drive
JBL speakers
Fast boot time
Large hard drive
Backlit keyboard

The not-so-good (but definitely not deal-breakers):
Overall construction feels a little fragile, especially if you are used to a rugged ThinkPad
Keyboard takes a little getting used to
Windows 8 is a bit clunky
Generates some heat
A bit noisy
Could use more RAM
Some junkware, not enough useful software preloaded
Size & weight
Slow 5400 rpm hard drive

The Bad:
Awful track-pad
Glossy screen

Detailed review:

On the plus side, this machine is very fast, both in terms of performance and boot time. The NVIDIA video card and on-board Intel GPU work beautifully together and provide great graphics. This is a great machine for work (astrophysics) and play (games and movies). The display is crisp and gorgeous, and games look stunning on it. The JBL speakers perform amazingly well. Honestly, this machine is worth the price just for the speakers. It came with a huge, but slow (5400 rpm), 1 TB hard drive (although there are 4 partitions pre-installed on it, which makes the usable size about 884 GB; and you would have to clear out and resize one partition if you wanted to dual-boot Linux).

The machine is a little on the big and heavy side. But, it is supposed to be more of a desktop replacement than a mobile laptop.

Aesthetics: I think it's a beautiful laptop. Metal all around the keyboard area. The lid is entirely metal on the outside. It's a sleek design that is minimalist - which I love.

Function: The 1080P screen is gorgeous. Watching movies and high quality YouTube videos is great. The JBL speakers sound better than any laptop speakers I have heard. One of my favorite features is the keyboard - the feedback you get from the keys and the solid build quality makes it enjoyable to type on. Also, for you gamers, I get a solid 40-50 FPS on medium to high settings playing Battlefield 3.

I looked at about 5 different models from a variety of companies and this beat them in almost every category. My one gripe so far is Windows 8. The touchpad gestures can be quite annoying but I'm sure I will adjust to it in time. Of course, that is not the fault of the laptop, just an observation.

Also - DO NOT ORDER THROUGH LENOVO. I had a lot of issues ordering through them and their customer service has been less than helpful (that is putting it very nicely). I don't know why I made the mistake of ordering through them initially. Ordered through Amazon and it was easy and they delivered on time, as always.

All in all, if this laptop fits in your price range, you will not find a better product. Highly recommend.

This is an amazing product. Not only super fast, with excellent screen resolution and very reliable but for sure the best that you can get for this Price.
On top of that it comes with Windows 8 which believe me is simply fantastic and easy to use with your current mouse.
I can see now everything in just one single dynamic tiles based home screen. My mail (all accounts), my messages, sports news, whats going on in Facebook, twitter etc.
If you are considering buying a computer in this price range, this is by far the best choice.

The Laptop runs smoothly, has great resolution and graphics and also has a blue-ray player! The computer is equipped with a full keyboard with number pad, which is a plus, and is a good looking design. However, I don't particularly care for Windows 8; there still seems to be some issues that need to be worked out. Also, the track pad needs some getting used to. I often find myself playing a game using the track pad and then all of a sudden I am brought to the desktop screen. Overall, I recommend this computer to anyone interested in a multi-media device that doesn't want to spend over $2,000 on a Mac Book Pro, but still wants to have great performance.

I bought this refurbished and had a few issues installing updates, I reset to factory defaults and everything has been smooth and fast. I am a bit of a power user. I use this machine for developing software with Visual Studio and this machine handles this without a hitch. The resolution is great. I have not used this to game ... yet.... but I am sure this thing will handle it with ease. The battery lasts me at least three hours of normal usage, web browsing, pdf reading, programming in Visual Studio. I did a lot of research and am extremely happy with this laptop. It is a touch heavier than my last laptop (Acer with I3 and smaller NVidia card) but it is worth it for the HUGE performance boost. The chicklet style keyboard has taken a little getting used to but I am sure I will manage. Cannot speak for the touchpad, I always turn it off and use a mouse. I would definitely recommend this laptop to anyone looking for a solid performing laptop.
