    Can we start bashing lenovo wallpaper? it just doesn't match the machine.

    How is the fan noise and heat you feel?

    yes,i did
    the fps for crysis 2 in single gt650m is around 20 fps in ultra 1920*1080
    battefield 3 in single gt650m is around 20-25 in ultra 1920*1080
    cod 9 in single gt650m is around 15-30 in ultra 1920*1080

    the driver version i use for gt650m sli is v306.00
    according to my friend,if i upgrade it to v310.64,i can get more fps
    but there is a issue there,if upgrade to 310.64,i cant adjust the brightness,because310.64 cant fit with the gt650m sli yet

    didnt hear any fan noise so far =.=
    and i keep playing game for 5-6 hour without stop,the temperarure never hit more then 70 ,so i think it is great for gaming
    of course if you wan better heat cool down system,you can buy a fan cooler

    the machine i bought,it came with the external graphic already,but without the ODD DRIVE,anyway i can buy it later on
    now still cant get to buy external graphic yet
    and external graphic for y400 is different with y500 ,external graphic for y400 only will be released next year

    How about battery life? Can you test how long does the battery last while playing and typical usage (wifi, medium brightness, browsing the web etc.) ?

    I too am interested in knowing the battery life. I've heard three hours, but I've also heard three hours while playing games in SLI which surely draws much more power than just browsing the web, or playing games with a single graphics card. Mine comes in this week and I'd like to know how long the battery lasts while just browsing the web/watching movies, and while playing games on a single graphics card.

    You don't attach it. You swap it out via its interchangeable ultrabay drive.

    Hey guys, I've been looking for a new laptop as of late. The best value in gaming laptops right now seems to be either the lenovo y500 or the lenovo y580. For those with experience- is there any difference between the y500 and the y580 in terms of the construction of the laptop? The only difference I can see is the slight upgrade in graphics card.

    TLDR: Go with the y500 or the y580?

    it last around 2hour and 30 minut when playing game with non stop , and also the battery plan, i put it on high performance, if i put it on balanced or power saved plan ,it should last longer

    y500 have better design, better heat cooling system, and also you can have more options in ultra bay
    for few hundred bucks, and you will get 40-50% improvement in gaming performance compare to y580,why not ~

    sorry that i dun know much about this, but according to chinese forum, system will auto hide the intel graphics 4000
