[Advice Please]My shiny new Lenovo y570 (isn't here yet...) - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Just watch your laptop...don't set it down and walk away.

Ipods are alot easier to steal since they are small and generic. Laptop would require more skill

OT:
Also, i really don't see the problem with having a bias...so the kid likes AMD...chill out you jerk.

I was surprised he let me go as high as $900

Anyways, I did some research, and Lenovo was ranked 2nd in customer satisfaction (below Apple). And they just so happened to have a $500 off sale before my birthday!


So THIS is my laptop.
What can I expect it to play? Can I do BF3 at low or medium settings?
How can I maximize it's performance?

EDIT: Also, I've gotten quite paranoid. My school reported tons of iPod thefts last year. How can I take my laptop to school safely? A lot of kids show up to school playing minecraft on their alienware, so it's not an electronic theft epidemic, I just want to be safe.

Free for three devices, similar to CompuTrace except they don't work with police, you do. Does not need TPM installed.

In case you were wondering, my sig had stuff about apple in it, and it made me look biased apparently. So I changed it. Which is why you are all confused lol.

Prey looks cool

That laptop runs circles around my Core2 and 4650m...I say it could do 13366x768 at medium settings

Not bad at all

very good advice!

that software is the bomb, seriously, with a high crime rate like in my neighborhood, i managed to find and recover 2 laptops from my friends without calling the cops!, needless to say the thiefs were not happy as they saw me and my buddies pull up in their driveway
