Ordered this on the 3rd May. On unpacking the laptop I was impressed initially by the design and build quality. The windows 8 OS started almost immediately with a 16GB SSD, not 64GB I might add. The laptop has an impressive GPU an nvidia GTX 660M with 2GB of GDDR5 RAM. I managed to play Bioshock infinite on medium quality without any problems at all and there is a video driver update which does give some improvements in game playing as well.

The JBL speakers are outstanding, the onekey theatre system is great and the surround sound is nothing short of remarkable.

All in all I cannot fault the spec of this laptop. However, there is always one caveat and that is the keyboard. Yes it is back lit which is great, but as this purports to be a gaming laptop the most important part of the keyboard is the top left hand portion i.e the keys WASD. However it is this part of the keyboard that is loose and ill fitting. You can see the keyboard give way as you press the keys. The other three quarters of the keyboard is solid.

I spoke to Lenovo and they said that the keyboard should be completely solid and he said that they have had a few units where this part of the keyboard was not screwed in properly.

I have sent mine back to Amazon and when I get a refund, I will purchase another one and hopefully that one will be fine.

Perhaps other users can see if their keyboards give the same way as mine did.

Don't get me wrong for the money it's a top spec laptop and you will not find better value anywhere and I have done a lot of research.. When I get the replacement and the keyboard is fine then I will adjust my final rating to 5*.

*** Amazon, Why has this laptop jumped up in price from £849 to £1000? Not so great value now perhaps !!

I just got this laptop today and as expected the SSD drive turned out to be only 16GB instead of the advertised 64GB. So this configuration is exactly the same as currently being sold on the Lenovo UK webpage. The SSD is a SanDisk SSD U100 16GB with mSATA socket. It looks relatively simple to replace it with a larger version if you want to spend the extra cash.

The screen is brilliant and the keyboard backlight looks decent. I have not yet had the chance to test this laptop fully, but one of the obvious bottlenecks is the 5400rpm 1TB HDD (ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB), which runs only SATA2 (3Gb/s), whereas the SSD runs on SATA3 (6Gb/s) according to Intel Rapid storage manager.

Nevertheless this laptop has a decent CPU, graphics card, memory and screen. I will replace the 1TB HDD with my "old" SATA3 Kingston V+200 SSD.

The windows scores are as follows:
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHz 7.8
Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB 7.9
Graphics Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 6.9
Gaming graphics 1664 MB Total available graphics memory 6.9
Primary hard disk 850GB Free (884GB Total) 5.9

Here are some more specs of this laptop:
Windows Windows Version 6.2 (Build 9200)
Internet Explorer 9.10.9200.16420
Memory (RAM) 8058 MB
CPU Info Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHz
CPU Speed 2436.

the product description stated it came with 64gig of SSD (solid state drive) but only came with 16gig, told amazon and they gave me 10% of which is there normal refund price if you wanna keep the product - so check your machines. Blue ray drive is abit loose but i have heard this for all lenovo y580 laptops so i dont think its just my machine, it must just be bad design - it still works a treat thought, and tested the screen and blueray player with avatar - OH MY GOD - it is so crisp!!! better than my 1080p 50inch plasma and playstation. as for speed its amazing, I programme windows phone apps and it does not struggle, i have had been playing super meat boy (game) while visual studio was open on another screen downloaded 4 gig of documents and updates, nothing flickered and ran smooth. the price is very steep, but for an all out power machine which has a better graphics card than the new Xbox and the playerstation 4, and frankly more RAM, you can not complain.Read more ›
