IdeaPad Y560: are the bugs all over the series?

2010-07-15, 16:37 PM

I've been leaning towards getting myself an IdeaPad Y560 (0646-2EU), but after researching YouTube and this forum I'm quite afraid of this purchase.

 

I'm in Brazil (I'd import the notebook) so... no chance for returns!

 

Are the display problems all over the Y560 series? Are there any good apples or are they all lemons?

 

Thank you.

As far as I know... is on every Y560.

But, we have to be calm... It will be solved... or that's what the guys at Lenovo told us.

Also, it seams that you don't have International Warranty in Brazil:

Hope you can send it to Argentina, where you will have.

 

But, so far (what Lenovo guys says)... all the screen problems are just a software issue.

Let's hope it really is, because it's got some great specs otherwise...

 

I might consider waiting for the Asus N53JQ-A1. I really wouldn't be (financially) able to deal with technical problems.

 

Darn, I really wanted this notebook, though! :smileysad:

06242QU kit (i5-450M), you can see it on buy.com

 

Came with rapiddrive too. (I'm not joking, I can see a 32Gb samsung SSD controller in device manager, and the drive is substantially snappier than your typical laptop drive).  No screen issues though I am disappointed with the resolution, I thought it would be OK but even compared to the 1440x900 on my corporate 14" its noticeably grainy. fingers crossed nothing develops. 

 

Wireless performance was abysmal out of the box but resolved  by installing driver from manufacturer (do companies even do testing anymore lol).
