Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect gaming computer for the price I got this for Christmas sor I've just have a few games so far and its amazing. Love the design, from the carbon fiber top to the nice black material with the power button. I also got the headphones, and mouse and absoutely love them. This is a high quality computer, the Lexus of gaming computers. Its incredibly light, love the red highlight on the asdf keys. Nerve sense works great, incredibly fast and powerful. Next I'm going to get a vr headset and put it too the test. I gave three reviews for my lenovo on facebook my name is Jake Mcray on it. This is the nicest and best computer ive ever had. I would love to review your other products if you are interested. Thanks Lenovo for making a insanely good gaming computer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW So, I have always loved pc gaming, but I had 2 slow and chunky laptops, that had very slow processors. I knew that I was a teensy bit jealous of my friend having a nice Lenovo gaming pc, so I looked into the price of one like it. I found myself here, and decided that I would get it. Pretty simple, once I had the money. (quite cheap, i love it!) I have received mine the day before this was posted, and I love it. I got the core i5 model, and it is SUPER SMOOTH. It's backlight can get a bit annoying if you have glasses, (like me) but overall, it's a great computer, and very, very portable. I would recommend this product to anyone and everyone. P.S. best fans EVER

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great laptop I've been using this laptop for two months and it's been great. As for what I was looking for, I wanted something that could play games, stream videos, and multi-task, but also be able to do these things without overheating (main issues with my prior laptops). This has incredible cooling power with a large surface area of ventilation and multiple fans. The fans come on and off as needed and my laptop rarely goes above 50 degrees unless I'm loading something big (once it's loaded it goes right back down). The screen is nice and it is physically appealing. There are two problems I have which are the keyboard layout (random keys in places where other keys SHOULD be) and the trackpad. The trackpad is the worst one I've ever used and I highly recommend you get a mouse if you don't have one already. It's incredibly hard to use the trackpad even for non-gaming since the large surface is unclickable (so tap only) with two small areas of clicking that is not really in the easy to hit area. Since the keyboard is different than ordinary keyboards I've used it does take some time to get used to. CTRL key is not in the proper position and is shifted to the right by a recording key. PgUp and PgDn, Home and End are now function keys which makes scrolling a little obnoxious. Once you're used to it, however, it's a lot easier to work with! I have not experienced any crashing, slow downs, or hard disc failures with this laptop. It's been very reliable unlike my previous laptops (different brands, this is actually my first Lenovo product!). If you are interested, it works perfectly with Ubuntu 17.10 under Intel graphics (No support for the dedicated radeon card yet, but that will come out soon). No crashing, no boot troubles, wifi is perfect. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great laptop, but you can get unlucky I've had this laptop for 8 months. I really love it. It's great for games and for schoolwork. It's pretty fast, has clear graphics, tons of storage, and a nice big screen. The speakers are decent, the light-up keyboard is nice when it's dark, and I don't see any lag when playing games or working on virtual machines. There are a few minor annoyances. The battery life isn't very long (about 3.5 hours when unplugged, though you can try to extend it by lowering the screen brightness, reducing the number of open applications, etc). So you have to take the charger everywhere you go with this laptop. The screen is also relatively dark, and this issue is compounded when lowering the brightness to save on battery. When the laptop gets hot, the fans may turn up and can get pretty loud. This should be normal, but I've found that it happens sometimes even when I'm not doing computationally intensive work like gaming (for instance, I'll be just surfing the web and the fans will start going). What's worse is that this doesn't always stop when I close the laptop. When I pull it out of my backpack after walking to class, sometimes it's very hot and the fans are going full blast even though its been asleep; this burns up battery, too. However, these are just minor issues that I believe most people can deal with, since the laptop is otherwise great. Of course, I wouldn't be writing a review if I didn't have some major problem to bring up. I've had some hardware and servicing issues with this product, and if it can happen to me it can happen to other potential customers. A few months after buying the laptop, the screen started having yellow/pink discoloration around the edges; at first it was just in the corners, but it worsened and spread over time. It was really annoying, especially at night. It was also clearly a hardware issue, since the discoloration could be seen even when booting in BIOS mode. I finally sent in the laptop for servicing under warranty a couple of months ago to get it fixed. The screen discoloration was fixed, but whoever did it also re-configured my hard drive. I luckily had backups of my data (just in case) and could restore that, but I also had to re-install a lot of programs that were broken because the paths to their files were changed, important libraries were lost, etc. It took a long time to even find all the things that I needed to restore since I had no idea how many things they had changed. Mostly, it was annoying, because the screen discoloration seemed like a hardware issue - so why would they need to alter my data/program setup? Maybe they just tried to re-install the HD, and that temporarily fixed the issue. I wouldn't be surprised if the screen discoloration shows up again in the future. I'm glad they fixed it, don't get me wrong, but it would have been nice if they told me what they did and why they did it so I could at least have a starting point for restoring my setup. And that's not even the worst part. There is now a loose screw or something rolling around inside the laptop and causing who knows how many new issues. I've noticed my battery life has been drastically shorter recently and the fans have been going more often. I'm anticipating future problems. In conclusion, the laptop is great, performance-wise. But it's not as well-built as it could be, and in the unlucky case that you have hardware issues, be extremely wary of the servicing you can get. From researching my computer's issues on the Lenovo forums, I know that several people have had similar problems. I would recommend the laptop for those who want relatively inexpensive gaming-level performance. I just hope you're luckier than I was.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from SHORT battery life...2 hours without the key lit Got this as a Christmas present. Was surprised that for a "gaming" computer it is kind of slow. Battery doesn't last very long at all! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
