My PC technician broke my old Y570 (5 years+) while he was trying to fix the heat issue last week ugh, well I was thinking of getting a new one anyways and hope Lenovo improved their thermal cooling over the past years.
I heard many throttling and heat issues with the Lenovo Y700 15', but I'm afraid if I should buy it or not. I need real input from consumers, not their representatives.
If I buy it, my friend want to trade his Y700 15' (i7-6700hq, 4GB 960m, and 256GB SSD) for a my Y700 15' (i5-6300hq, 2GB 960m, and 1TB HDD+128GB SSD). Both are non-touch, he bought his a while back (I think his specs were discontinued).
I don't know if he has heating issues, but he doesn't play games much. I guess he just want the i5-6300hq because it produces less heat. I play games for hours and expect no CPU or GPU throttling due to heat which I heard from this laptop.
So If anyone is a long term consumer of this laptop, do you recommend it for extended periods of gaming?
(Especially heat issues, I can hold back the trade and use the i5-6300hq model if heat is a problem)
