Great desktop replacement; not so great laptop replacement,
This review is from: Lenovo Y550P 324156U 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black) (Personal Computers)After using Macs exclusively for 3 years, I switched back to Windows because of one reason: I wanted a quad core laptop (i7 specifically) and Apple has yet to make one. Furthermore, I know that when they do it will only be offered at first on the highest end of the 15" and 17" MacBook Pro models and will likely cost between $1800-$2200. When this laptop went on sale for $999.99, I knew I could no longer justify staying with Apple because $999.99 just happens to be the price of their lowest end laptop. For $999.99 (PC vs Mac) you can get processor quad core vs. dual core, HD 500GB vs 250GB, Ram 4GB vs 2GB, max ram 8GB vs 4GB, LCD 13.3" vs 15.6", and internal graphics of 256MB shared vs 1GB discrete. To me this is no contest. I was able to switch my Adobe programs over to PC by calling Adobe customer service and performing a cross platform swap. I needed to update my MS Office suite anyway so I didn't mind spending $170 to get MS Office Home/Student 2007 plus Outlook 2007. I will... Read more

Has some issues, but overall a great computer,

This review is from: Lenovo Y550P 324156U 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black) (Personal Computers)Like one of the other reviewers I also am switching to this Lenovo after having a Mac for nearly 3 years. The main reason for my switch was that I wanted an i7 processor and a 1GB dedicated graphics card which Mac just doesn't offer at any price...the huge bonus here is that this computer only cost $1,000!
Pros: Overall I'm very satisfied with this product, but not crazy impressed. I had reservations about the y550p because of its lackluster screen resolution and supposedly poor build quality. Honestly though, I haven't noticed any issues with these things. The screen is bright and clear, the colors look good and from what I can tell the computer seems sturdy enough (though I don't get very mobile with it). The keyboard is also pretty good, I wasn't eager to switch over from Mac's pebble key design, but this keyboard is springy, responsive, and well-spaced. As far as looks go this Lenovo is slick. Not as slim as a Mac would be but still fairly compact and its coloring and... Read more

I love this thing!,

This review is from: Lenovo Y550P 324156U 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black) (Personal Computers)Pros:
-- The keyboard is a nice size. It feels nice, and types well.
-- The LED lights look sweet - and the little ideapad logo is really neat
-- The sound on this thing is nice - it has a subwoofer - which is noticable when tested against my fiancee's MacBook Pro that is broken and basically plays sound far too loud.
-- The screen is bright and easy to read
-- The computer can run, illustrator, photoshop, world of warcraft and google chrome with no slow down.
-- Great at running any application or game with the processor
-- The graphics card helps with games - my games look excellent
-- Lots of storage - 500 GB I've only used maybe 200 GB , a good portion of that photos.
-- Windows 7 is great. I have little to no problems with it.
-- The computer is light and is carried easily in a backpack (I'm 5'2")
-- I love the orange accents
-- HDMI port yes!
-- Not a loud fan. I heard others complain about this but I... Read more
