    Comments about Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 2099-42U 15.6" Notebook Computer (Gray):

    This is a great laptop quality and overall just a well built machine. I have had Dell and HP after I read reviews I thought I would give Lenovo a chance and was not disappointed. Best screen I have never seen on a laptop and just about nothing comes close for the money. I would recommend this to any student or multimedia Geek. The video playback/sound and speed of the CPU is great. I have yet to have any problems or complaints about this machine. sorry HP Lenovo is #1 in my book now! Only one note it is a bit heavy for carrying around school or traveling.

    Amazing laptop. Fast enough to play 2012 games, as FIFA 13, Dirt Showndown or heavy apps such as Photoshop Cs6, Illustrator CS6. Immediately after buying, I add a M4 Crucial SSD. Now I have a blazing fast PC.
    The only problem is that this lenovo gets pretty hot, even in idle. ( but consider I live in Sao Paulo Brazil, where temperatures can reach 40 ºC.

        Great gaming performance after I added an mSata HDD just great temps and a nice videocard overclocker.

        Not much bloatware to get rid off from the get go, the only "con" I can find is the integrated webcam which I must say I don´t really use.

          Great laptop !!!, I do audio editing with pro tools and other DAWs, video editing, audio programming and I was looking for a laptop with enough horse power and good portability at the same time and this one is perfect for me, it's not easy to find such a great laptop at this price range. I had an hp laptop and an ASUS G73 but this is the first time I buy a lenovo machine and I'm very happy with it.

          The only thing I dont like about this laptop is that the touch-pad feels a little cheap, but I am using a bluetooth mouse so I dont mind.

          Overall this is a great laptop for gaming or for anyone using heavy applications. The screen looks great too !!!

          The product looks good and is great for its value. So far I have yet to see any problems regarding to hardwares or the heat produced. Shipping was okay, product was carefully placed and handled. Boxes were NOT damaged after travelling several of countries......Overall, product looks great and the screen resolution of 1920x1080 on a laptop is absolutely gorgeous. I could run modern games at ease at high - ultra settings. Kudos to B&H Photo and Lenovo for the service + great product.

              Comments about Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 2099-42U 15.6" Notebook Computer (Gray):

              I bought this notebook for casual gaming, watching movies, and taking to class. It has exceeded my expectations in all aspects. The powerful quadcore i7 and 660M graphics are more than enough to play modern games at above average settings. At the same time they throttle down beautifully to provide amazing battery life when one is simply browsing the web or typing a paper. My only caveat with this notebook is the screen. Under certain lighting conditions the glare can get quite annoying. It's nothing a small change in screen angle can't change, but having the option for a anti-glare screen would have been nice.Personally, hard drive capacity isn't too important to me. There's a version of this notebook available with a 32gb SSD cache, but for only a few dollars more I opted to get this version, and replace the entire 1tb HDD with a 256gb SSD. Now, in addition to this notebook's already impressive performance, it can go from completely shutdown to on and ready to use in under 20 seconds.
