So I just received my IdeaPad Y500 Notebook today. Tried running Guild Wars 2 which was a complete fail. At highest settings I'm getting no more than 10 FPS and at the very lowest settings I am getting around 20 FPS... 0_o . Why is this?! Please, someone help me out and tell me what I need to do.

I just got my Y500 the other day and so far I've only managed to get StarCraft II installed and it runs ultra settings super smooth. I'll install guild wars 2 tonight and test it out. I'll report back with my findings.

No worries ya the base config is 1366x768. Was just curious how it runs on the 1080 but I can always crank down the resolution. Did you try any big multiplayer games or only single player campaign?

Kool thanks for the info. Well I can't speak for this model because I havn't received mine yet but I will update once I do. My current laptop does the same thing if you bang the table so I think that's fairly normal to a point. Do you find the overall build quality seems fairly sturdy aside from that?

Sounds good I heard from others the build was decent and the cooling was much better on this model than the y580. well my current lid is glossy and attracts fingerprints like crazy so i'm used to it. Not much of an issue as I only take it out occasionally anyway.

Could you please elaborate on this?
