Guys had a few issues will be updating as soon as i can sorry i see a lot of views so im guessing a lot of people looking forward to it. The good is there is an i7 version available now. Am i disappointed not really to be honest, as so far doing what i have been doing it has not missed a beat.

Glossy screen on a Lenovo hurts my sensibilities. :(

Good looking laptop though.

I got a Y560 last month, almost an entire month ago.
i7 here. 500GB, 4GB RAM, ..
same packaging. I haven't looked at the guide. I hope mine is English.

The face recognition VeriFace works for me. Try looking closer at the webcam when it scans initially.
I don't really like the gloss all that much. It gets smeary very fast.
Battery life is poor. I rarely use the battery and take it out most of the time. When I do pop it in, and turn brightness to normal (4 bars), it says 2hours 6 minutes. that's quite disappointing.
About brightness, it goes down if you put it on the Ambient Light Sensor Control randomly. I turned it off and now that's no longer a problem
Laptop also gets hot very fast. Side heat vent fans out very hot air...which I doubt is that great. AC adapter looks like a monster.

I don't get the top slidebar that much. It does not always pick up the lock screen, and I don't get how it changes background.

Other than that, good laptop. Only one BSOD two weeks ago. :] scared me shtless.

Cons: Sound system great, Webcam integrated, bright screen

Cheers~

what im trying to figure out is when Rapid Drive will be available it almost sounds identical to Segates Hybrid hard drive system. The Sound is Exxelent better then any laptop i have seen.

I see the Lenovo has the absolutely wonderful Canadian innovation, the BiLingual keyboard!

You have my sympathies. I am dumping my Acer netbook, and that keyboard layout is part of the reason. Picked up a Fujitsu P770, which has a standard keyboard, and is much nicer for those of us who have spent more years than I care to admit to, typing on a standard layout keyboard.....
