    very fast, graphics great. Looks awesome
    mouse pad is hard to get used to - two fingered scrolling.
    Windows version is a nightmare to get used to.
    battery only lasts 1:30 hours, but takes 3hrs to charge when using, so have to have it plugged in constantly.
    Fan is very noisy
    Fan is exteremely hot and poorly positioned - underneath - so your 'lap' gets hot... in 5 minutes.

    I was sent a model with faulty wifi and told i had to wait for it to get fixed from brand new.

    It also had a few odd problems like resetting key repeat time and the start button stopped working.

    It's got a really fast CPU and GPU, comes loaded with RAM and run Linux with all features supported out of the box .

    The keyboard is a little weird, but very nice to type and the build quality is impressive.

    Finally, all components are accessible and easy to replace. There are two fans, one on the CPU, one on the GPU, which is a big improvement from my previous E530, which overheated and broke the USB ports on that side.
    The reflective screen is a very poor choice and it's a bit larger than it should (large bezel on both screen and keyboards). The battery could be a little larger, too.

    Design and sharp screen
    Programs need support for the 4k screen! Resolution scaling is extremely disappointing and erratic, producing different scales across windows.

    Touchpad needs work, can be "jumpy"

    Hi Richard,

    Thanks for getting in touch with your feedback. Scaling for 4K screens has been greatly improved with Windows 10 and we will see better support from third party applications in the near future also.

    For details of Windows 10 and the easy upgrade process please see the following link http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/windows-10-upgrade

    On paper this has to be the best machine on the market but.....
    ...in reality it is not, it's slow to boot up, programs even slower to open and the amount of installed programs from Lenovo is in unnecessary, have removed them all but my pic still takes over 600 seconds to boot! I traded in a surface pro 3 for this laptop and wish I never! Maybe a ssd drive will help? More expense!

      I would like to ask about warranty. Does lenovo y50 has warranty? I mean I live in uk if something happened to the laptop it is possible to take it to the company in uk to repair it?

      1. Ian replied on
        It does come with with a warranty, though unfortunately it has to go all the way to Germany if you need to have it repaired.....
    3. Reece asked on
      Will this play world of warcraft?
      1. MATHIAS replied on
        Yeah it will run it maxed out at 1080p no problem I don't thing there is a game out there yet that it won't run I basically every new release I play on it is either maxed or high settings on 1080p so you will have a fair few years before the spec of this machine become outdated hope this helped :-)

    6. John asked on
      I intend to buy the Y50 with the UHD screen and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4GB GPU. How do you think it will fare when I used programs such as the adobe suite and the Autodesk suite (AutoCAD, Revit etc.)?
