    A Great Gaming Laptop!

    Posted .

    We initially bought a MacBook Pro. While the SSD on the MacBook was awesome, my wife was unable to utilize many programs Windows can. Gaming was another issue. The Lenovo Y700 works excellent! It charges really fast, and I'm loving the 4 GB of Video memory! It did only have 8 GB of RAM, however, it is expandable to 16GB. The speakers are AMAZING. My wife and I enjoy watching movies. It has a little sub-woofer on the bottom that gives it extra bass. All in all, it's a great laptop. You're also getting a 6th Gen Intel Skylake processor - I7-6700hq.

    Great laptop but has defects

    Posted .

    Everything seems to work fine. Great game play, screen resolution is nice but it lacks brightness level. Overall great laptop but i cant give it five stars because in the 2 1/2 months that i've owned it, it has crashed with the blue screen of death randomly at least 6 times. Now, i know its not the elite tier laptop but for someone that paid over 1200 for the laptop after taxes, i'm very disappointed at the fact that it crashes the way it does. I literally freaked out the first time that it crashed as i was writing a paper for school and "My pc ran into a problem" screen came on followed by a function less restart that ask you to chose how to boot the system on a unresponsive keyboard. The only away i could fix this is by force shutting it off again and restarting it again. I would have rather gone a different way instead of constantly worrying about when my laptop is going to crash again.

    The Y700 Will run your steam Library

    |
    Posted .

    This computer does the job you would expect. Runs all the video editing software I needed and all my steam games run great on this computer. I was real sketchy as I have always been a desktop guy but the specs in these laptops such as this Lenovo y700 really make the switch a easy choice if your looking for a mobile platform. My only knock on the computer and this is a "pc" problem in general is all the bloatware that is preinstalled from windows and lenovo. You really have to do some cleanup duty to make it run optimal. Nothing more than uninstalling unwanted programs but I hate that PCs do this on everything. When I bought this the best buy employee told me he heard these run hot. That is not true that was true with the Y50 models but this model stays cool and when the fans cut on they are drained out by the great JBL audio that it has so its a non issue. Only Cons I have are minor, but the black allows for fingerprints to show easily and the ports are too close together so it can be problematic if you're usb's are larger... But nothing major to complain about. If you're in the market for a laptop that can run the latest games in high to medium settings this guy does the trick... You wont be disappointed. Games I've played on this are: Witcher 3 Wild Hunt (High Settings) Diablo 3 (High Settings) TF2 (High Settings) Heartstone Left for Dead 2 (high) Metro (Medium) Heroes of the storm (High) no issues on these games in these settings

    Excellent Mid-High Range Gaming Laptop

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this almost a month ago, and it has been an excellent product so far. Pros: For this price range, it has some of the most impressive performance in game than I have seen out of any other machine. Its JBL speakers are absolutely booming, with the addition of a sub woofer, these speakers are the best I've heard out of a laptop so far. The touch screen is nice and responsive. The back lit keyboard is my favorite layout in a laptop, as it includes a shortened NUMPAD0 key, and full size arrow keys, where many laptops choose to shorten the arrow up key. The key travel is great, and its a very satisfying keyboard to use. The track pad is a soft matte that is pleasant to use, and I haven't had any skipping or anything of the sort. The touch screen comes with a semi matte finish that is, in my opinion, wonderful. It cuts reflection by a massive amount, and its viewing angles are great. The 960M, 8GB of RAM and Core i7 6700HQ in my model crushed the mid range titles I threw at it. I have run about 90 hours of GTA V at near maxed settings, with about 50fps consistently. I appreciate the inclusion of a single 8GB DIMM of RAM, allowing for expansion to 16GB by buying only one DIMM, instead of replacing both. I also appreciate the inclusion of an M.2 drive slot, which I filled pretty quickly. Its I/O is very good as well. Cons: The screen is very noticeably lacking in color accuracy. Comparing it to a TV that I connected via HDMI was worlds different, but don't worry, it it completely unnoticeable when you are gaming on the laptop. Do not use this laptop for color accurate work (it measures 66% Adobe RGB). The battery life is not stellar, but its impressive for this range of laptop. You can expect an hour and a half while gaming on battery, and about 5 hours of browsing and media streaming on battery. Do not use this laptop if you depend on full day battery life. You can expect some Lenovo bloatware, but nothing bad compared to other products that I have seen. Notes: The soft matte finish on the majority of the machine gets smudgy very easily, so it requires cleaning now and again. The red back lighting DOES NOT change, if you do not like red, don't buy this laptop. It turns all the way off, but if you want any back lighting, it is red. When gaming heavily, there is some noticeable fan noise. There is also some obvious throttling happening, but nothing major that caused problems for me. If you are torn on the touch screen, I recommend that you get it. It is wonderful for media viewing when you are on the couch at that awkward angle :). Overall, this laptop is excellent for the student who wants the performance to play almost any game without giving up the portability of a laptop. An excellent and pleasing product that I would recommend to anyone.

    Really nice machine- TERRIBLE TRACKPAD

    |
    Posted .

    I've only had this machine a month (plan to update review eventually), but I really love it. Boots fast on Windows 10 and runs my games on ultra graphics without an issue (For example: Elder Scrolls Online, Minecraft with a really high chunk radius). Laptop is really beautifully designed and comfortable to use EXCEPT FOR THE TRACK PAD. Luckily I hate trackpad using unless absolutely necessary so I use a gaming mouse, but when I have used the trackpad I hate it. The buttons to click with are also part of the pad so while clicking your cursor slides off what you were trying to click unless you click the pad in the right spot. The Track-pad is also easily bumped by my palm while gaming sometimes (accidentally slice at important NPC surrounded by guards anyone?). Really surprised that such a nice laptop would have such a horrible trackpad feature. Luckily most gamers aren't big on using trackpads. That being said this laptop really blazes and the screen is bright crisp and beautiful. The touch screen is responsive and easy to use. This laptop has just enough USB ports (2 on one side, 1 on the other which is nice). Power cable is nicely designed (rectangle plug so it wont spin around in the port). Back-lit keyboard is bright and really aesthetically pleasing. Right side of the laptop under the keyboard does get a tad bit warm but nothing I would be really worried about (laptop bottom has a little bump to help keep the laptop propped up for ventilation even on flat surfaces which is nice). I've gamed on it for 6-8 hours at a time with no problems and it doesn't go beyond a certain level of warmth (wont burn your hands or anything) Can I just take a second to note how wonderful the sound is on this machine? By far the best sound I've ever heard from a laptop. I'm usually not one to concern myself with sound quality but after using this laptop I am so thrilled with it. The sound is not tinny or laptop sounding, it sounds like it comes from a desktop speaker system, really lovely sound. Just as a note both the brushed metal top and the keyboard area FINGERPRINT LIKE CRAZY. You will never keep this thing looking spotless, never. But other than that it's a really lovely machine. I would recommend this to any gamer. At the time I bought this, they were able to price match to New Egg for 100 cheaper than sticker price, definitely double check that before buying. Also a CD/DVD external drive COMES IN THE BOX. So even though this laptop does not have a CD/DVD drive, there is a nice USB external one that works fine that comes in the box. No need to buy an extra one (was pleasantly surprised at this).

    Pretty good, not perfect

    |
    Posted .

    First off, I'd give this a 4.75 stars or 4.9 if that was an option. I bought this computer hopeful that the cpu performance would outperform my current desktop computer. IT DOES!! What an upgrade! I'm not a heavy gamer, far from it. But I do use Photoshop, LightRoom Photomatix, DXO Optics Pro 10, and Corel PSP a lot though and I wanted something that didn't lag so long I fell asleep between actions. This accomplishes that. Just for comparison I've got 18mp Canon raw files that I use the DxO Optics Pro 10 set to Landscape Stadard, with Noise Reduction Prime turned on, and 9 images take less than 6 minutes. That would have taken 20+ minutes on my old machine. The bonus that I didn't even realize before I bought the computer is the screen is viewable from most angles with little to no color shifts. The 1TB drive is great. The drawback is the amount of ram it comes with, but just throw a bunch in there for a few bucks more and you're rockin it.

    Good laptop with a few bugs and needed upgrades

    |
    Posted .

    Out of the box, the Lenovo y700 model that I purchased needed some display driver upgrades that were kind of tricky to find and install. The issue with the drivers were that the screen would flicker and sometimes black out. It has since been resolved at no cost through some internet research and the issue hasn't recurred. The other issue I have is why put an awesome processor with awesome ram, then use a 4800 rpm hard drive??? The bottleneck is definitely the hard drive so I will soon be upgrading to an SSD. Overall, the laptop performs very well minus the slow hard drive because once programs load, it is very fast and can handle many different heavy tasks at one time. For the price, this laptop is amazing, the build quality is solid, and the finish is really nice although it is an instant fingerprint magnet. Battery life is okay at best, but expected for this beast of a processor. It lasts about 3-4 hours unplugged before it starts warning you about low battery. It has intel HD graphics and also an Invidia GeForce 960m 4g gddr5 graphics card. The backlit keyboard is nice, but would have been cooler if you could select the LED colors. They are red and can be dimmed and turned on or off. The battery is not removable without taking the laptop apart and to upgrade RAM or the hard drive, you must also take the laptop apart, there are no access doors on the bottom for easy part upgrades. The sound is pretty good with the onboard JBL speakers and it is quite loud for a laptop. You could use it for presentation audio in a quiet room and it would be adequate without external speakers. To summarize, its good for its price, and close to perfect with a few hundred dollar upgraded hard drive. I paid around $1000 for it with the i7 8gigs ddr5 ram and a 1TB spinning hard drive but now its listed for less than $900. I can't see it being outperformed by anything in its price range with an SSD upgrade. The ram is silly fast and the processor is great.

    Excellent gaming laptop!

    Posted .

    After purchasing this laptop and spending some time with it, I felt compelled to write a review. Being one who have experienced countless high-end brands/models of desktops and laptops, I'd have to say that Lenovo has outdone themselves on this beautiful work of art. The appearance and feel are that of high quality design and material, the performance and operations are paramount, it's an "undercover super computer", so to speak. Built with the latest technology to date -- Intel's 6th generation and smartest quad core processor makes this laptop super fast and efficient, NVidia's high performance dedicated graphic processor is a power house for everything visual and offers a major boost to the overall performance of the laptop, Dolby audio provides clean, clear and solid audio quality #it's an awesome entertainment system#, the touchscreen works perfect, the backlit keyboard and touchpad are very nice, and Windows 10 makes everything easy and user-friendly. This laptop can and will handle your hardcore 3D gaming #such as GTA 5 on high settings#, multimedia editing and production #such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere and After Effects# and anything else you can think of throwing at it. The battery life last for an average 3 - 4 hours doing normal things that are not heavily demanding like word processing or simple web browsing. However, if you're running video, audio or gaming while on battery it might last for 2 hours or much less. But of course you'll naturally get better performance when the laptop is plugged in with the charger. I also must add that within the box came an external disc drive, a very good addition from Lenovo for those who requires such use. Last but not least, the cooling is really amazing on this laptop, no matter how hard you push it, it stays cool! Before purchasing this laptop, some reviews stated a black screen issue. Since I purchased the laptop, I realized that this issue only occurred in Microsoft Edge on some websites #that's the new browser that comes with Windows 10#. This is not a problem with the laptop, and can very easily be resolved by disabling hardware acceleration in the web browser options or by using a different web browser -- just Google search for "How to Disable Hardware Acceleration #GPU Rendering# in Microsoft Edge". In conclusion, I would highly recommend this laptop for any computer enthusiast, high-end gamer, high-end multimedia production or high-end business. #5 Stars!#. I hope this review helped, and I wish you all the best in your purchase! :)

    Mostly Great Gaming Laptop

    |
    Posted .

    For the money this thing is fairly beefy: great graphics card, great processor, enough RAM to start. The only drawback is that it only comes with a 1TB 5400 RMP HD: pretty slow for gaming purposes. The light at the end of the tunnel is that it does have an M.2 slot for an SSD; I put in a 256GB and it's working great when I install demanding games there. Other notes: RAM is upgradable to 32GB which I plan to do eventually. I'm also thinking of replacing the 2.5" HDD with an SSD eventually. With those improvements, it'll be a certified beast.

    My son suggested that i buy the $2295 (on sale) Dell with a 4K display and a 1 TB SSD. The processor and memory were the same, although the dell had 16gb standard, and the Lenovo had only 8gb. The Lenovo has a better than high definition display. Not 4K, but it seemed very sufficient. I went for the Lenovo at a sale price of $895. I immediately ordered 32gb of ram and a 512gb m.2 SSD for the Lenovo. Thus armed it boots in seconds. Anything on the m.2 drive is blazingly fast. My main reason for this purchase was a failed prior laptop. My main use is for Adobe Lightroom. Running Lightroom on this machine with all of the ram and off the SSD is so much faster! The experts suggest to run certain Lightroom retouching in a particular order to prevent bringing your computer to a crawl. With this machine order doesn't matter. It blazes through whatever you throw at it. Now if I could only figure out how to load the operating system onto the SSD and then boot off of it... It didn't use to be this complicated! Nice machine and a steal at the price.

    Wonderful little powerhouse of a laptop

    |
    Posted .

    I initially bought this laptop to replace my desktop while it was in the shop for three weeks getting hardware replaced. So far, this laptop has performed better than the high-end desktop has! It's able to handle computer games, videos, and everything else without lagging at all, and it has an incredible amount of memory. Really the only downfall is that you can't put CDs in it, but it does come with a USB connected CD reader, so you can get all your music onto the laptop that way. I'm also not a fan of the touchpad. I'm used to the pad, but I'm used to the pad ending in large buttons at the bottom to click on things. With this one, the buttons are part of the pad itself, and you can still move the cursor while clicking. It can make things a little difficult, so I just bypassed that issue by getting a wireless mouse. Overall, this laptop is a powerhouse and has a neat sleek design. It's also pretty sturdy. I accidentally bumped it and knocked it off the bed at one point with the lid up, and it didn't phase the laptop at all.

    Just as good as Alienware

    |
    Posted .

    Purchased this laptop for a family member who was struggling to play even basic games on their older laptop. Amazing machine for the price with an i7 processor, dedicated graphics, 8GB of DDR4, backlit keyboard and a 1TB hard drive make this a great buy. I had purchased an Alienware R3 (17") a number of months ago for my wife who doesn't play games, but is an avid photographer, so I thought a gaming laptop would be the way to go for photo and video editing. While the R3 is also a great machine (the only difference being a klipcsh speaker system and a 128GB SSD), the y700 is just as good at half the price... plus it has touch screen capabilities. Highly recommend this.

    Good mid-ranged gaming Windows laptop

    |
    Posted .

    I shopped around for a long time before pulling the trigger on this one after BB had a good sale price. I specifically wanted a decent gaming laptop with a minimum 960M video card and the ability to install a m.2 SSD for the system drive. The i7 cpu is a beast and the 960M is sufficient for my gaming needs. I didn't need something crazy powerful and with the sale, I got this thing sub $800 out the door tax included. That gave me breathing room to purchase a Samsung 950 Pro m.2 PCI-e SSD and 2 sticks of 8GB DDR4-2400 ram (it comes with a pair of 4gb DDR4-2133 installed) Critical step to getting the system to boot off the new SSD is to install the Samsung driver BEFORE cloning the 1tb drive. I learned that the hard way and wasted hours befuddled. It so much faster now, but not utilizing the full 2500 GB/s bandwidth. I get about 1500 GB/s r/w but still light-speed faster then mechanical drive. I use the 1TB drive as storage, but it is so incredibly slow that I plan to ditch it for an SATA SSD. I'll sacrifice a little storage space for more speed, less heat and power consumption. Keyboard has a nice tactical feel and the weight/size is good for it's purpose. I use a MacBook Pro for work, but not a fair comparison for the price point. Speakers are really good for a laptop and the way it vents out heat is done very well. It is a fingerprint magnet though for the case, so I'm constantly wiping it down. Lenovo bloatware is annoying, I will most likely do a fresh clean install of the OS. I dislike many features of Win10 (privacy invasion anyone?) and you need to take multiple steps to mitigate it. Google "windows 10 privacy" and you'll see what I'm talking about. In conclusion, catch a sale and you can't beat the bang for the buck. I'm happy with the purchase. Just be ready to put in a little work if you want to get maximize it's potential and protect yourself from M$ tracking. The main knock is more OS and not the hardware.

    It's a great $1000 gaming PC, don't update anythin

    Posted .

    ***********Don't update anything if you are tech noob, just let the windows update do any drivers update for you. Otherwise, you gotta have same problems as other noobs have. AND tech support won't help since they are just getting minimum wages in India call center. Basically, they search their database to help you solve your issues. In the other hand, if the solution isn't in the database, they will screw your laptop all over. The driver issues are across to ALL laptop regardless any brand as long as they have both video cards************************ I picked this one when it's on sale today. For $1000, you can't find any better options to choose in terms of the whole package. Pro Screen, it's the best in this price range. Don't compare it to $2000 MacBook pro. Speaker. It's the best across any laptops, even better than MacBook pro. Materials: It feels good. just go to bestbuy and touch it. Performance: i7 + gtx 960m. it can run a lot of games. Con: the 1TB HDD is slow despite it's 7200 RPM. I immediately upgrade it to SSD.. Weight- Heavy. 5.6 lbs Bezel: WTH is this? It's 2015, they are still having ultra wide bezel. Lenovo needs to take some note from Dell XPS series. Fan: ...not quiet at all. Warranty: no in home service.

    Excellent design and build quality

    Posted .

    I purchased the Y700 after trying several Ultrabooks (Spectre x360 and Samsung Book 9) which had small issues that bugged me. I needed a workstation with enough hard drive space and memory for running VMs. I really needed a solid state drive so I purchased the Y700 with a stock SATA hard drive so I could upgrade it myself. It has an MKey M.2 Sata slot (2280) and a regular 2.5 slot. The downside of this laptop is that it comes with a regular hard drive. Also, the coating all over the laptop is a fingerprint magnet. Touchpad feels a little cheap. Upgraded to a 950 Pro + 850 Evo -Fast 6700HQ Quad core -Fast and newest DDR4 Ram -M.2 Mkey 2280

    Great for Developers, Suberb Anti-Glare Screen

    Posted .

    I searched high and low for a strong CPU laptop that would meet a developer's needs, which these days mean generally looking at gaming laptops. Major requirements for me were a decent high-end processor, back-light keyboard for evening programming, ANTI-GLARE screen for coding outside (a must for me), and a touchscreen to test coded touch enabled apps, FYI gamers: Lenovo makes a comparable version without the touchscreen for about $200 bucks less. The NVIDIA graphics was just an added bonus. Most of my apps don't make use of the discrete graphics, though Chrome and a few other browsers do (I don't use Edge, so don't know about that). The laptop does come loaded with Lenovo bloatware (and others), but can be un-installed via the control panel (and regedit if you know what you are doing). The bloatware was an irritation, especially since some of it is broken and HAS to be removed anyways). Battery life is OK, but I get a full charge from a drained battery in about 30 mins. THE anti-glare screen was a gamble, being a glossy touchscreen panel (i figured I would have to return it on the basis that it wasn't antiglare). I was quite honestly astonished I can use it outside in direct sun, even with the sun at my back, as long as it's about 15 degrees off from directly behind me (superb!!!). Just remember it's a touchscreen so need to clean the screen if you are going to use in the sun outside. Also, I have never used a mil-spec matte anti-glare screen to compare to and I would assume it is not as good as those but those machine lack strong processors and are twice the price. Lenovo Chat Support has been EXCELLENT.. Never had better support in 20 years. I repeat, support is amazing, they actually can address all my issues without research! The One MAJOR issue is the screen does not tilt back back as much as most laptops (i don't mean open to lay flat, it only opens about 115 degrees - a guess), so if you are laying back in a recliner and want to tilt the screen back to see it better you are out of luck. The DVD drive is external, but no issue for me and is included. Sound is best i have on a laptop, the sub-woofer really helps. For people having issue with crashing, etc, try to remove all the bloatware helps a lot, but it does take some knowledge. There could be issues if you can't get rid of the bloatware. PROS: Everything but the screen tilt-back and bloatware. CONS: the limited screen tilt can be a major irritation and the bloatware really needs to be removed. That said, I'm running Visual Studio, Internet Information Services, and a bunch of other developer tools on it all at the same time without a hickup. For a sale price of $999.99 I considered it a steal... Even at current list of $1149, I couldn't find anything comparable. Gamers, your mileage may vary.. Oh, the battery is built in (but accessible to replace). Not an issue for me anymore, but can't just buy an extra battery to pop in when the other runs low.

    Good but not great

    Posted .

    I bought this laptop cheaper than the regular price because it was an open item. There are a few issues that I am dealing with right now. For example the screen goes dark out of sudden and it doesn't react with the mouse or the touchscreen. Sometimes I have to restart it or swipe the screen left to right to get all my windows in line in the center of the screen. When I click on the window that I was using before the screen went dark, it will happen again. So the only way to avoid the screen from going dark is to completely close that window. The good news is that the 4 gb graphics card is more than enough to run SolidWorks 2016 and the few games that I have played, run smoothly. The bad is the 8 gb memory ram, one would imagine for the high price of this laptop, that it would at least have 16 gb memory ram. Think about it, Intel Core i7, 4 GB GTX card, 1TB hard disk, why not 16 GB memory ram. It's like buying a 500 hp supercharged car, and only having 17" thin tires. You would be able to use all the power to its full potential. To me the touchscreen is cool, but pointless, this laptop does not fold into a tablet, so why need a touchscreen. I can't see myself ever really needing the touchscreen.

    Excellent gaming laptop that was on sale

    |
    Posted .

    Another one of my Black Friday pickups. I don't know if I would have paid full price for this laptop as I'm more inclined to do a gaming desktop. However, I needed a replacement for my oldest who's desktop was having issues and she was using laptops purchased from Goodwill. So the bar was set fairly low for her. I had looked at the previous model, and was not sold on price/performance. But when this option came up on the Black Friday list, I relooked at this unit and the specs on this newest edition were more impressive (although still did not have an SSD). We've had no issues setting it up, and the performance has been as expected. Gaming is very acceptable, and basically preforms close to claims. The red keyboard back-lighting is interesting, and while I would not prefer it, my daughter is OK with it. The touchscreen works well with Windows 10. The audio doesn't touch my 5-piece powered system, but I would gauge it as one of the best I've heard from a laptop. Over time, I will breath new life into it later with an SSD upgrade. I think this unit (especially with a later SSD upgrade) should be usable for a long time. I would recommend this model to others in the market for a gaming laptop (and willing to pay some premium).

    Firstly I purchased this item because of all the wonderful things I heard. Secondly because it was super fast or so I was told. Well I purchased the laptop and I had to exchange it, The screen would go black and freeze. I exchanged it for the same exact laptop because geeks quad said it must of been a faulty one, well I've had this new one for about a week and it's very slow and semi freezes. I'm not sure if I'm just "lucky" or it's a no good laptop. But when it's working right it's fast and I love the speakers!

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
