    Hey guys. I just ordered a Y50 from the outlet on one of those "you must stalk the outlet" buys. I am a bit nervous because it says it has an IPS display, i7-4720HQ, and a GTX 860m. Did lenovo make this configuration? I am hoping it actually has a halfway decent IPS display because the TN panels are garbage. The outlet is known to be off on specs, but I am hoping I got at least what was mentioned... Id be thrilled if I got the 960m. Off to read 100+ pages of this thread :)

    Acceptable for an IPS display. Viewing angle is good but the color is not good as my old Vaio Duo 11

    I cleaned up the thermal paste and applied Ceramique 2, got a 5C reduction in CPU and 6C reduction in GPU temps, and this is before the 30 hour burn-in. Thanks for your help.

    Hey guys, Quick question. When i hit Fn+F3, it brings up the display options as it should, most Fn commands work fine. But the Fn+F6 combo for disabling the touchpad doesn't work. I switch to a mouse often, so i'd like to easily disable the touchpad. as it stands i have to go into mouse properties and disable the hardware each time.

    Any reason why that one specifically doesn't work?

    Running A clean install of Windows 7 if that changes things. According my mouse properties i have Synaptics touchpad V8.1

    ^^^^Working fine over here, W7 Pro x64, Synaptics. Maybe the problem is you're not running the Synaptics driver provided from Lenovo. I do, and the latest driver version is 17.0. Not sure what that V8.1 means you put in your post..?

    Edit: Right, I think I saw what you mean. Apparently I have "Synaptics Clickpad V1.1 on SMB port".

    Has anyone had issues with Optimus not working? I have to manually set games to use dedicated graphics and it's honestly annoying to keep doing. On the bright side I'm surprised the frame rate I was getting with Integrated Graphics.
