5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product! Powerful laptop with all the specifications specified in the header, 19 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lenovo Y510p 15.6-inch FHD Laptop Dusk - Black (Intel Core i7-4700MQ 2.4GHz, 16GB RAM, 1TB HDD, 8GB SSD, NVIDIA GT755M 2GB, Bluetooth, Camera, DVDRW, Windows 8.1 Home Premium) (Personal Computers)
I have been looking for a top performance laptop for months. I have tried Dell, HP, Sony and Lenovo.
This Lenovo laptop has the best power, data storage and interfaces (i.e USB, CD/DVD etc) with the best price tag. With similar specifications other manufacturers are asking for lot of money.
I was concerned about Amazon's bespoke specifications as other retailers dont sell DVD/RW or 1 TB HDD as baseline specifications.
The SSD is built in within the HDD and it's really fast. I have verified the system to ensure SSD exists.
Another good thing I noticed, the laptop comes with OEM Windows license key and it's built inside BIOS. However If you have MSDN or MAPS licenses, you can still use your own. If you rebuild the laptop with your own Windows OS, the laptop takes the OEM licenses from the BIOS. It brings trouble in case if you want Windows 8.1 Pro. As I wanted to run Hypervisor and I needed Windows 8.1 Pro, OEM license was preventing me to do that.
There are various Microsoft forums on how to fix this licensing problem. Microsoft licensing team will not help. I dont exactly remember how I fixed it as I used trial and error method. But I now have Windows 8.1 Pro with my own license key.

Only issue I could find with this laptop is the touchpad. The response time is not great. I installed latest Lenovo driver and it improved it. I have ended up using mouse now. I have managed to compromise myself with this issue as the benefits outweighs drawbacks.
