Had this product for a few days and am highly satisfied. I was very skeptical due to the VERY mixed reviews, and on top of that I've never owned a Lenovo product. Saying that, I was EXTREMELY impressed with the build quality of the laptop. It was very sturdy, and doesn't feel at all cheap. It feels like an ultrabook. Performance was very good. The only game I've really tried so far has been Borderlands 2, which I could play on high graphic settings at a perfectly playable fps @ 1080p. Now the most common complaint I've seen across the board was the crappy screen. I will admit, the colors seem very washed out. However, if you go into the Intel graphics properties you can adjust the color saturation. If you bump up the color saturation and slightly bring the gamma down, the colors will pop ALOT more. I'm not saying it makes the display absolutely gorgeous, but it improves it a lot. The matte finish on the display makes it very good for gaming and for any extended periods of time viewing it. My only real complaint is that the spacebar isn't very sensitive. You will find yourself typing and looking up noticing that you didn't type a space and your words run together. Not a huge deal, you just have to make sure you firmly touch the spacebar, For the price, this is probably your best choice for very portable gaming and really anything if your on a budget. The i7 is only a dual core but gets the job done, and the radeon r9 graphics are underrated, They have exceeded my expectations! Overall, great value.
************UPDATE**************** A year later and this laptop is still my daily driver, when away from my desktop. The battery has completely went to crap, and I have a replacement on the way from Lenovo ($75). This went out quicker than expected, but it did have heavy use (I am a student). The hard drive got to the point to where it was unbearably slow. I recently replaced it with a 240gb SSD and I cannot even begin to tell you how much life it breathed into the system. I know how nice having an SSD is as I have one in my desktop, but I never realized quite how slow of a hard drive this laptop had until I put in an SSD. Do yourself a favor and spend a little money on a solid state. It will really help fully unlock some of the power this laptop feels like it's lacking.
Pros- Awesome exterior quality with fancy, yet subtle looks Lots of power for the price (does well in games and any other tasks) 1080p screen resolution 3 USB ports, including one specifically made for phone charging 14in in my opinion is the perfect size
Cons- Washed out screen (fixable) No disc drive Spacebar doesn't work to well (not a huge deal)
I bought this laptop refurbished for 400$, and for that price it's really good. Battery last 3+ hours with normal use, keyboard it's fine but it's not backlight, screen it's 1080p with good quality (not amazing, just good), the speakers do a really good job and the R9 M275x it's good enough to run Esports games (Dota, League of Legends, Counter Strike Global Offensive) very good, between 30-40 fps in mid-high settings at 1080p, of course if you low the resolution to 720p you'll reach 60 fps.
I've tested: PES 2017 : 900p - Max settings with mods - 60fps Dark Souls II Scholar of the first sin: 720p - max settings - 60fps (constant) CS:GO : 720p - max settings (2xMSAA) - 70/80fps
Some cons are that for the size it's a little bit heavy and you're only be able to play with the dedicated gpu with the charger connected (but I think it's most a windows problem that the laptop itself). All the other problems written in the other reviews did not happened to me. Overall, it's a really good laptop even today, but just if you buy it for 400$ or less. For 800$ I'll definitely recommend this one: https://www.amazon.com/Pavilion-Notebook-i5-6300HQ-Affordable-Computer/dp/B01HSXL5CI/ref=sr_1_4?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1478694551&sr=1-4&keywords=HP+Pavilion+15+Gaming+Notebook It have a SSD + HDD, 4 core processor and a GTX 960m, which it's WAY better.
So far I'm fairly happy with this laptop. I had zero problem getting things set up, and for being a 44 year old mom who isn't very tech savvy, that's saying something. I mostly use the internet and sometimes let my youngest daughter play Minecraft or other games on my computer. Sometimes my older kids will use my computer instead of theirs for homework assignments. I find Windows 8 cumbersome, but I'm not used to it yet. The *only* real problem I have is that the colors are extremely washed out and drab. When I went out looking for more technical reviews, this seems to be a common complaint about this laptop. Considering that most of what I do is look at text and pictures, this may be a deal breaker and I may wind up returning it for that reason only. I have attached a picture to show the difference between my old desktop and this laptop. My brightness is up all the way, and I haven't found another setting to change the contrast or any other parameters that might help. I will probably call their support number and see if I'm missing something.
Like others have mentioned, the track pad is prone to failure. I'm at my wits end with it and it nearly cost me my grades in a few of my college classes. I will have to replace this laptop before Fall quarter comes around and I've had it less than a year.
Update July 5th: My wifi capabilities is dying on this laptop. Checked for viruses, nothing wrong. Restarted, still having issues. My wifi is working perfectly fine (I'm watching Netflix on my Roku while I write this review and wait for the wifi to work again on my laptop) and the fault is with the laptop. I feel stuck. Summer quarter started today and I cannot afford to be without a laptop, but I can't afford a new one either. This is by far the worst laptop I've ever owned. At least I got multiple years out of all my others, this one didn't even last one!
For the specs the laptop did not live up to its hype ..im greatly disappointed. Dude i freaking bought this laptop n had it for only 2 months n it completely crashes on me overheated n blew my usb aux board.but its been almost a year now since ive had it..i just realized i had warranty on it so i called n was able to send it to get it fixed. That was the best part iam currently waiting for it to be done. My experience with lenovo customer service was great .but overall i was disappointed about my laptop being destroyed i payed 600 bucks for it!!! Should work like any other gaming ultra book!
