    "Overall nice though perhaps a bit pricey. Works great for my purposes but there are better deals out there. One problem is that steam will function very small sometimes when in 4k."

    "Piece of trash, had to throw away after 1.5yrs of mild use. The motherboard died and the PC wouldn't turn on. read online many people with the same issue. Starting starting with the fact that when the computer worked, the 4k screen was locked to 48mhz and there is nothing to be done about it. The other issue with regards to the screen is the color yellow, but this I worked out until the computer died on me. "

    "I love the IdeaPad series. I would recommend this one to fellow programmers for all the same reasons that IdeaPads have attracted such a dedicated cult following. They do everything well, in a slick package. In particular, the keyboard and trackpad are truly the best I've used. And when you are coding, that makes a HUGE difference."

    "I like this IdeaPad because it is fast from the get-go. It is already 4k ready and the i7 is blazing fast. There's not much else you could really want out of one of these things. It's really nice."

    "Lenovo IdeaPad Y50 has a nifty touch screen display. The best feature about this laptop is the 16GB RAM. For the longest time I was always purchasing external memory, but with the Lenovo IDeaPad I no longer have to do that! I highly recommend this laptop! "

    "The Lenovo IdeaPad Y50 is a great basic laptop for anyone who wants to get things done. It's got a powerhouse of a CPU and lots of extra RAM so you never run out of space or memory."

    "Lenovo offer a simple solution to an elegant laptop idea. It gives you everything you need and is sleek, stylish and comes with lots of ram space"

    "For me, Lenovo has always been about solid design and performance. Their new IdeaPad Y50 is no exception to that. It boasts a powerful set of specs with a slightly understated design. For my money, this is a solid choice for a gaming laptop."

    "This laptop functions nicely and is good design. However, it makes for a very poor gaming laptop. Battery life isn't great, the fans are noisy, and the games won't always run full screen."

    "The Lenovo IdeaPad Y50 continues the good reputation of Lenovo. It has a touchscreen that is user friendly, great speakers and plenty of RAM to carry you through. It is ready for 4K so it ought to be great for watching movies if you use it that way."

    "This is far from the best gaming laptop in this price range. There are loads of better ones for less."

    "The Lenovo Ideapad Y50 appears to be a decent option for a middle of the road gaming laptop. It has Intel i7-4700HQ (Haswell) 2.4GHz with Turbo Boost Technology up to 3.40 GHz and a 15.6 in screen. The touchscreen feature sets it apart from other gaming laptop options on the market. The backlit keyboard with two levels of light is another attractive feature. "

    "Lenovo is great if you want factory installed spyware and bloatware. They got busted for it a few years back and I will forever not trust them. Sure the hardware might be great but with them touching it, no thanks. "

    "Never have to worry about ram with the 16GB that comes installed. Lightning fast, no matter what programs I am running."

    "I am currently using a Lenovo desktop. I really would like a new laptop, but I would not recommend Lenovo. All the stats look really good for this laptop and it only costs $850, but I do not trust Lenovo. This company got into trouble years ago for hiding spyware on their machines, and I feel quite certain that they have simply found a different way to install that spyware, because my Lenovo would periodically run a program that I could not stop from running. I sifted through many, many commands on the hard drive, while deleting suspicious-looking files until I think I finally shut off whatever it was that running without my permission; but, who really knows? I do not like sneaky, dishonest computer manufacturers. "
