    Hey guys, I've found a Y50 on amazon for 1k CAD, and I'm thinking of getting it. It's a 4700HQ, 4K Res, 860M model, and I was wondering if there were any build quality issues or things I should know about on this laptop besides it's age.

    Not sure if my Y50's sub is doing anything. Any well to test? When I play this frequency thing, I think I start to hear around 90 - 100 hz.

    Hi! New user here!
    I'm a fresh new user of the Y50 FHD, i7 4720hq, 960m. Aside from occasional flickering that appears after wake up from standby for some seconds, it seems ok to me.

    Two questions:

    Can you confirm that there's no way to turn fans off when the CPU is in idle?

    Aaaaand.. Is there really no way to fix this crappy unresponsive touchpad?

    The last one is no big deal to be honest. I use this laptop exclusively for gaming purposes, I've a MacBook for work and study.

    Any other must-do tips for this model (bios settings, color screen settings, performance clock tweaks) are really appreciated

    buy this model with gt 960m + 1tb ssh disk

    i come from a samsung series 9 notebook with 512gb ssd disk, always super fast and i used to have a 8 seg boot to windows

    this 1tb ssh disk is a disaster, how lenovo can place a disk like this in a "gaming" laptop

    sometimes i want to pick the laptop and destroy it ehehehehe

    solution wil be buy a ssd because with this ssh there is no solution to have a good performance

    the design of laptop is very good, sound is great too, gtx is great, materials of construction aren´t bad at all too, but i would prefer metal instead of ruber in the keyboard area and base

    my touchpad is broken :(

    the left and right lick buttons don´t work

    only tip that i sugest is format all disk, make a clean install from a updated version of windows 10 from a usb pen, and don´t install nothing from lenovo

    Yeah, I agree.
    Since I have a second laptop for serious stuff with SSD, I said "well no problem, I have just to launch games here, I can wait". But damn, sometimes its really slow.

    Switching to an ssd will make me lose the warranty? Since there's occasional flickering on the display, I have to be sure to send it back in case it gets serious.

    but if you have problems send it to warranty and ask them that
