    Overall pretty disappointed with the battery life. I seem to get 2.5 - 3 hour max.

    Is that using integrated graphics? Is there a way to switch off the graphics card? How high is your brightness? Thanks.

    kingfirejet, thanks for the tutorial!

    I just ordered my Y50 Touch from Klick also, and had a few questions if you don't mind answering them.

    1) What was the point of the last screw? Why was it okay to take it off with the last screw still in?
    2) I've always seen the storage at 8GB SSHD. Your specs listed is the first time I've seen it listed as "up to 512GB". Does that mean the size of the SSHD is adjustable (I didn't think that was possible)?
    3) Do you have links for the components (specifically the RAM) you upgraded?
    4) Do you have any links on how to clone the HDD to the SSD? I usually do a fresh install, but I know we're not given a key so it doesn't seem that simple. (I know I can google it, but any help would be appreciated!)

    Thanks!

    That's a pretty awesome background. Do you have a link?

    I just ordered a y50 touch, i'll be upgrading the HD when it arrives. both the enclosure, as well as the SSD include transfer instruction & software. it's fairly easy. After you install the SSD and transfer windows, you can reformat the SSHD that comes stock and put it in the enclosure as an external HD for your X1/PS4.. or just for additional storage.

    HD Enclosure (turns your internal HD into an external one) so you can transfer windows:
    Amazon.com: Sabrent USB 3.0 To 2.5-Inch Sata Aluminum Hard Drive Enclosure Case (for 9.5mm, 12.5mm 2.5-Inch SATA-I, SATA-II, SATA-III HDD and SSD) Black (EC-TB4P): Computers & Accessories

    SSD i'm replacing my HHSD drive with:
    Amazon.com: Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Single Unit Version Internal Solid State Drive MZ-7TE500BW: Computers & Accessories

    nice pics. still I find it sad from Lenovo not to integrate a mSATA-slot. that would have brought that NB very close to fullfill all of my wishes.

    Just a fact of the moment. It seems I have 4hrs and 40mins of battery life on power saver with 50% brightness and the touch I turned off.
