Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p 15.6-Inch Laptop (59406648) Dusk Black (Personal Computers)
I bought this to use at college for research and writing papers, as well as for playing games at school and at home on a 29" monitor. There was not a ton of bloatware to remove, and Windows 8.1, once properly setup, works perfectly fine. The keyboard is a charm for someone like me who types very fast and really pounds the keys, I find myself making very few mistakes, and the lighting is incredibly nice. I've tested this playing a few Steam games (Team Fortress 2 and Counter-Strike: Source), and League of Legends, so far it runs everything beautifully without any hesitation on max settings, and it does not get terribly warm (certainly not as warm as my last laptop would get). I'm not a fan of trackpads, but I was able to navigate around within Windows removing and installing programs for several hours without any problems (until my wireless mouse arrived in the mail; I don't intend to touch the trackpad again save to wipe it down on occasion). The speakers are pretty nice as far as laptops go. I will likely order a SSD within the next few months, since the hard drive is really the only thing "slowing" the computer down, but so far I'm incredibly happy and impressed.
