    Is it just me or does the Glossy Touch Display have way more colour vividness and brightness than the Anti-Glare Non-Touch Display? The reds on your background pop out a lot more to me than the ones on the Anti-Glare screens seem to. I am going to cancel my order of the top 512 GB SSD Non-Touch model (currently due to ship on June 19th in Canada) because a decently vivid screen is important to me as long as reflections aren't THAT bad. How reflective is the touchscreen by the way, kingfirejet? More than the Y500's screen?

    A screens is really hard to find a compatible replacements for, replacing it is a pretty big hassle, and using a different screen on a laptop it isn't meant for can reduce display brightness and not look as good as the native screen regardless of specs. Meanwhile, upgrading to SSD and adding an extra 8GB of RAM doesn't seem that hard, the difference between an i7-4710 and an i7-4700 is pretty minimal, and the difference between 4GB VRAM and 2GB VRAM is even less (should be completely unnoticeable to me). So I think I'll probably be getting the base Touch Y50 either from Klick or from the Lenovo Canada website when it becomes available. Just to have the colour vividness I've grown accustomed to and like. Matte screens are so boring unless they're super high quality like the Y510's. :(

    kingfirejet, please post more colourful pictures or videos ASAP! ;)

    I think the glossy touchscreen allows for more accurate color and a "clearer" display since the matte/anti-glare versions don't let as much light through. Matte<Glossy when it cones to accurate color reproduction. The panel itself should be the same, though.

    Yeah, I posted that when I was in class and I opened the laptop. I had like 5 Chrome tabs on a window. And it was more like 30% brightness, my bad not 50%.

    I'm also contemplating getting this model. How is the heat when gaming? Can you use it on your lap?

    Yes, would also like to know this. Heat is my main concern that I have with this, so I'd like to know how bad it is.
