    Quality is nice, mostly. Lots of screws on the back and enough paste on both CPU and GPU (one might say too much).

    I just bought a Lenovo Y50-70 which is arriving tomorrow, and I have a spare 4GB SODIMM lying around:
    http://www.corsair.com/en-us/vengea...e-sodimm-memory-upgrade-kit-cmsx4gx3m1a1600c9

    The questions are:
    1. Can I install 4GB in the second slot while the original slot have an 8GB module? (Yes, 2nd slot is empty on my model)

    2. This SODIMM is 1,5V, and I think 4th generation Intel CPUs mainly use low power (1.35V) modules, Is this a problem?

    So, can I use the one I have, or do I need to buy a new one?

    Is the 960m purported to be a different, less powerful version of a 965m? I think the 965m would be a better option for the IdeaPad if it's as a reasonable $1200 price point.

    Apparently the 960m is an 860m with higher clocks.

    1. Yes you can. (In terms of RAM capacities/configuration)
    2. No, 1.5V is not compatible with Haswell notebooks.

    Thanks for the info. I'll just go buy a new SODIMM instead. Really wanted 16GB total, but figured it was worth a shot with the 4GB free and all. :)

    I'm wondering if my brother was using my computer while I was away.

    I was gone for several hours and I put the Y50 to sleep when I left. When I came back I checked Event Viewer. I don't know how to interpret all of the information, but I see stuff with a time that was while I was gone.

    Can Windows do stuff while the machine is asleep, or did he find a way onto my account?

    EDIT: He could have accidentally un-sleeped it, I suppose. Even if he had no account access some events may have happened just from wake-up. Maybe I'm paranoid?

    They already have IPS models for sale on the US Lenovo Y50 site. Has anyone used a Lenovo stock 1080 IPS monitor? I can't find reviews anywhere.

    what are you asking? the only y50 model with IPS display is the 4k variant, which is, of course, locked at 48hz.

    He's probably asking if anyone has the refreshed model yet, which is supposed to have a GTX960 and IPS panel
