              I use this laptop for videos, movies, games, and blasting music.
              It has excellent performance and starts up quick. The video quality is very clear and the sound is great too but sometimes I heard a buzz but I think it's the desk I'm using. As long as you have great Internet connection you can use this laptop for anything. The mousepad could be better but a mouse can fix that. You can't use both the keyboard and mouse at the same time.

                          Just got this notebook for college and not disappointed at all. This is probably, if not, the best notebook you can get for the money. Great for gaming and daily use. 660m basically can easily run most games at high to max settings and new Ivy Bridge i7 runs lightning fast. Has more than enough ram and HDD space and can be easily upgraded if you wish. Some say a 1366x768 screen is not ideal but just change some view settings and the picture looks clear as day. The brushed finished also looks absolutely astounding. Some small cons are that it doesn't have the best cooling solution so mostly the CPU gets hot under load. There's also no grip or anything to lift the screen open and it has a gloss display. Other than that this notebook is still a beast of a machine and can handle anything thrown at it. Once again, you probably won't find a better notebook at this price.

                            This laptop is able to play all the newest games on high. GPU stays 65 celcius or cooler when running under full load. It has an excellent heat sink that gets all the hot air out. The keyboard stays pretty cool unlike other brands. You will barely feel the heat coming out from the keys. The fans will turn up to keep it cool and will get a little loud but if you're playing games the sound of the game will probably mask the sound of the fan. When doing simple things like typing a paper or surfing the web the laptop is silent. The keyboard is back lit which is great for using in the dark. Some may say the resolution on this thing is low but it works for me. The GPU can handle higher resolutions but you may have to turn the details down to medium. Battery life on this thing is great. I can get up to 5 hours just surfing and watching movies. This laptop has by far the best speakers on any laptop that I have tried. The sound is full and doesn't have that muffled sound most laptops have, and when the volume is turn up you don't hear the vibration sound other laptops have as well. If you need something mobile that can play games on high, this is perfect for the price.

                            Comments about Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 20994CU 15.6" Notebook Computer:

                            I put in a solid state drive and upgraded to 8gb ram... omg it's great.
                            I play Diablo 3 right now... GREAT! Just make sure it switches over to NVID card (weird that mine didnt in auto NVID settings)
                            It's HOT! getting a slanted cooling mat that lifts it off table. ie.(Cooler Master)
                            GREAT DEAL!
