    Best value for a gaming laptop., November 2, 2013

    POLAR (Atlanta, GA) –

    This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p 59388313 15.6-Inch Laptop (Dusk Black) (Personal Computers)

    I have not found a better gaming laptop for this price. (I got mine for $999.99)

    Besides the obvious facts that this laptop has great specs, this is why I like and dislike:

    CONS:
    - The keyboard can turn a bit hot when gaming. However, I use it with a external keyboard and mouse so it is not a big deal for me.
    - The touchpad is a bit oversensitive.
    - It is larger than previous Ideapad Series Y 15″ laptops. (It barely fits in a laptop case I used for my Y580)
    - 5400 RPM hard drive and no mSata connector. (Come on Lenovo, who wants a 5400 RPM hard drive for a gaming laptop? At least include 7200 RPM and/or an mSata connector)
    - It is a bit complicated to remove the bottom cover if you want to upgrade memory or hard drive.
    - It has a heavy 170w power adapter. So the regular ac adapters that you can get at your local PC shop will not work if you want to game)
    - The Intel HD graphics drivers do not come installed.
    - The screen is very nice. However, the bezel is very glossy.

    PROS:
    - Ultrabay – Apparently Lenovo will start selling DVD, Blu-Ray, Fan cooler, and hard drive adapter for this port.
    - Best specs for the money. (The dual Nvidia 750M in SLI perform similar to a single 770M)
    - The speakers sound great
    - The back light for the keyboard can be adjusted (Low/High) depending on how dark is the room where you are using it.
    - The Intel HD Graphics can be enabled in order to extend battery life.

    Tips:

    1) If you are using Windows 8.1 and the second 750M is not showing as SLI capable then you have to update the BIOS.

    2) If you want to improve battery life by enabling the Intel HD 4600 graphics (Nvidia Optimus):
    2.1 – Turn off the laptop
    2.2 – Follow the instructions to remove the second graphics card (fairly easy)
    2.3 – Turn on you laptop and install the Intel VGA drivers found in your Lenovo partition (Drive D for mine)
    2.4 – Now you will see the Intel logo in your task bar. (Optimus will not work if the second graphics card is inserted in the Ultrabay port)

    3) Upgrade to a SSD of at least 250GB (More GBs is better but costly)

    4) Use a cooling pad when gaming

    5) I have used 90 watt ac adapters when I’m not gaming or doing anything graphics intensive without signs of overheat. I would suggest to remove the second graphics card if you want to run games but you don’t have the 170W brick handy.

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p 59388313 15.6-Inch Laptop (Dusk Black) (Personal Computers)

    First off I went into this purchase knowing full well that the Lenovo Y510p has a very bad name in regards to its SSD card slot. Some laptops include the SSD, some laptops don’t include the SSD but have the slot on the motherboard to install your own, and for some reason there are quite a few out there that don’t even have the slot soldered on to the motherboard to install the SSD.

    I purchased from this page because the product clearly states a 1000GB Hard Drive and 8GB SSD. I’ll just fill you in right now, this particular model shipped by this product page does not even have the connector for an SSD soldered on to the motherboard.

    Great laptop regardless, slightly disappointed, I wish Amazon would do a better job of keeping product descriptions up to date and accurate.

    This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p 59388313 15.6-Inch Laptop (Dusk Black) (Personal Computers)

    The version I got of this laptop is the 1,200$ one with SLI, 1920×1080 resolution screen, 1TB HDD, 8GB.

    There is nothing I find that I don’t like about this laptop besides the fact that Lenovo and Microsoft tend to pre-install useless apps that unnecessarily takes up too much space (summarizes what Windows 8.1 really is).

    DESIGN sleek design (compared to most regular laptops, let alone gaming laptops). I really like the nice brushed aluminum look that makes it appear simplistic while elegant. Nothing flashy like most other gaming laptops which tend to go overboard on the design. The tic tac keyboard feels nice and responsive when I type,

    HARDWARE. I find that the SLI configuration does its job at playing most games on Ultra or at least High settings with Vsync, Anti-Aliasing and Ambient Occlusion all the way. I’ve used FRAPs to capture the framerate and on power hungry games like Battlefield 4, it surprisingly does well, staying around at least 45 fps on High settings. The only drawbacks of having SLI though is that there is very noticeable microstuttering(flicking/flashing graphics during movement) that happens on some games and it is common problem among many SLI setups. Playing with a SLI set up is also more unstable than normal, where certain times, part of the graphics on screen would glitch and malfunction but when SLI is disabled, it goes back to normal. But that is the developers end to fix that. Besides that, I would recommend to get the SLI if you really want to play games on this, otherwise, you are stuck with playing on Medium graphics settings.

    The hard drive on this laptop is horrendously slow. Its only 5400 RPM compared to the normal 7200 RPM HDD. and even then I still considered that as slow. So if you want really anything to load up, read, transfer instantaneously, I recommend you buy a SSD and swap out the HD. I swapped mine for a 500GB Samsung 840 EVO and computing was never the same for me. Boot time for this computer is around 4 seconds compare to 20 seconds, loading Photoshop took 1.5 seconds compared to 10 seconds. Another part I swapped out was the RAM, for a new Corsair 16GB RAM to handle more multitasking. During the installation of these parts, removing the bottom cover of the laptop was really easy, simply remove the battery first, unscrew all the screws and gently pry the cover off and pop in whatever parts you want.

    Overall I was generaly pleased with the performance, stability and design that this laptop offer. Most of the promises of this laptop came through and certain ones exceeded my expectation. Priced at around 1,200, I would say it is worth the money. If you choose to upgrade it with a SSD, the total cost of the laptop and SSD combined would be only a fraction of what the overpriced MacbookPro would be while surpassing it with twice the performance and capability. While being powerful to game with, compact to bring around from place to place, and versatile enough to handle all kinds of work put out for it, the Y510p is the best laptop I’ve ever bought and being a computer science student, I would really recommend it to anyone out looking to buy a monster of a laptop.
