    Some impressions after watching the vid, man that guy has a serious dust problem.

    Also:
    1. The finish looks chintzy to me with the textured palm rest area.
    2. I like the glossy screen, also that the bezel is hidden behind the glossy panel.
    3. Don't like how much screen real estate is lost, heck you might be able to fit a 4:3 screen in there.
    4. It sounded LOUD.
    5. No mention in the video about temps, wonder how bad it is.
    6. The thin brick was a good idea.

    What did you guys notice, were the benchmarks on par with expected results?

    He talks bout it being a very loud fan at about the 6:20 mark. Says "most gamers will be using a dedicated headset and probably won't notice." In other words, you can't help but notice without plugging your ears with something.

    As a Lenovo Y510p user currently, I applaud Lenovo for what they've accomplished but I can already tell you this laptop probably won't be worth full retail asking price. For me the reason to buy Lenovo was at the time, no other gaming laptops were being discounted so low. Assuming they release the Y910 for roughly say, $2500, in about 4-6 months when they add Kaby Lake or some other minor revision, it will go for 500-700 dollars cheaper.

    Really looking forward to a more thorough, regimented review like Notebookcheck.

    All the Pascal laptops run hot under gaming load, and loud fans are an added bonus.

    I've had hands-on with the Y900, and found it to be quite unique. The textured palm-rest feels like a solid piece of rubber. The mechanical keyboard takes a bit of getting used to, but is solid. The multi-color backlighting is well done. The layout of the keyboard is really only good for gaming, though, not productivity (lack of dedicated Home/End/PgUp/PgDn, no Enter key in the numpad). Didn't get a chance to see what the fan noise was like.
    More noise for your money, right?

    Any idea when this is getting realised in the UK?
    I see you can purchase in Australia.
    Given issues with other brands I.e Alienware screen issues thinking this could be the answer...

    Not a fan of the new styling. Way too outlandish.

    Hey guys!

    Thinking about buying this laptop. Anyone who has seen it in person or owns it? I am interested in how much noise it makes when doing simple tasks on it? If it is noisy when gaming does not bother me that much.
