    Got my y50 yesterday! Can someone help with controlling the management of when the 860m and when the intel graphics run? Is there a setting where when it plugged in it uses 860 but when unplugged only does certain programs. Also what apps is the 860 necessary for, such as is there any situation where chrome would work better with the 860 on.? Or should i just change which graphics from auto to 860 all the time?

    Edit: Also has anyone been able to upgrade the nvidia driver yet?

    beeho, you're a champ! Honestly, the screen doesn't even look that bad. But I've already cancelled my Non-Touch 512GB model (was due to ship on June 19th) and since I watch a lot of movies I prefer glossy anyways. The computer looks so awesome! I'll be ordering the Touch model soon. :)

    Editing my review on the touch model at the moment. Will be quite long but divided into small parts for easier navigation. 1080p as well.

    While I'm editing. I took some nice screen shots with 4k resolution wallpapers.

    Looks great! Although, I think you mean 1080p resolution. Even if the wallpapers could be displayed at 4k, they are only 1080p since that's the max resolution of your screen. Unless you already somehow have a 4k Lenovo screen?

    thanks

    that is in line with the online review with the i5 processor y50

    seems the gs50 is tweaked to be a bit faster, but i'm sure you can overclock yours since it is maxwell
