I think its safe to say they're already spread throughout this thread if you read and search a bit.

Seriously, there are loads of post from owners of that unit. You're not going to get a summary of all there posts neatly wrapped up for you. A lot relates to issues with Windows 10 as well.
If you are going to spend that kind of money and not look into it yourself you'll just have to settle with what it is after buying one.

You will find the negative posts outweigh the positive posts by quite abit, because people that are happy with their Y700 generally don't come here to post about it. It just works like it should for them, and they are too busy playing games or surfing the web to write a review about their new laptop. After all, if its working like it should, why should they post about it? My car got me to work today without any issues, do I need to write a review about it?
Anyhow, this forum is good if you are the skeptical type, and wonder what might go wrong with your Y700 should you choose to buy it. Hanging around here is almost dangerous, because you know what issues others are having, and you go looking for them yourself, even if you did not notice it previously...
I've had my Y700 for 2 months, and it has been great so far. Plays games very well, I can hook it up to my TV and projector thru HDMI, the fan is reasonably quiet, I like the keyboard, and I think it has a very nice screen. Colors are not completely accurate, but it is nice and crisp. I did have what I thought was a pixel problem, there was an area on the right side of the screen where a few pixels were brighter, almost like a star. Not noticeable unless I specifically looked for it. Seems to have gone away on its own, because I cannot find it anymore.
Battery lasts 5 or 6 hours with the screen about 75% brightness(That's where I always keep it), but if you are playing 3D games using the graphics chip you gotta plug it in, otherwise the battery would last less than an hour. I like the feel of the keyboard and its illumination. The outer case is metal, inner surface is a smooth rubber like texture that has a great feel. Nice size trackpad.
