Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Bright backlit keyboard
The red backlit keyboard is very bright.
At 0.9 by 15.2 by 10.4 inches, the Lenovo Y50 is pretty slim for a gaming laptop.
Pro JBL speakers sound great
The included JBL speakers have a good bit of punch, sounding great with movies and games alike.
Pro Huge amount of storage
This has a hybrid 1TB SSHD with 8GB of nand flash.
Pro Nice design
By utilizing angles in the design the device looks a lot less blocky then its predecessor while also looking more thin than it is.
Con Computers may have man-in-the-middle adware installed
Lenovo is shipping computers preinstalled with man-in-the-middle adware called Superfish. It's a web proxy that can hijack any web session, including encrypted/https sessions. And since the root certificate is the same for everyone with private key present on the machine that's now publicly known, anyone can spoof any site to people using Lenovo laptops. Currently, it affects IE and Chrome browsers with Chrome expected to push an update that will block the certificate soon.
Uninstalling Superfish won't remove the certificate.
Lenovo are standing by their choice to install adware.
Con Poor display
With lackluster viewing angles matched with low brightness and poor color reproduction, the display is not that great. Especially when considering that the laptop is meant for gaming and multimedia.
Con Shallow keys
The keyboard feels shallow, something that should not have been compromised for a gaming device. Considering PC gaming is all about keyboard and mouse, a shallow keyboard leads to mistakes while gaming.
