Most helpful reviews

christopher, Tyne and Wear Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
ultrabay idea is great, very fast compared to my old laptop, can handle new games too, even though mine is the single graphics card version. the light up keys look great in the dark too.
Bad points:
now the ultrabay ... trying to buy another graphics card even from lenovo company itself is difficult as i have emailed a few different companys and not had one reply only a canada lenovo shop said straight off... NO we do not ship abroad. This is a SATA 3 motherboard and for the money i payed i would have expected a SATA 3 SSD and HDD installed but there only SATA 2?
