"Darxas"-Lenovo Y580


Original Post (Click to show)

Hey im looking for something that is meant to help out with gaming of course but also for editing photography through CS6 in photoshop along side with LR4
My gaming consists of
Battlefield 3
New Final Fantasy games
Day of Defeat source (i dont need much power for this game tongue.gif)
some new games which i am looking at here soon dont know good games been out of gaming and such for awhile been working on doing only photography and website stuff....

I would like to get a 3630QM i7 ivy bridge CPU
and a 650m or above GPU
the memory i can get it with out any and just get some from newegg and same with the ssd to alleviate the price of the comp from the sellers...maybe call and see about dropping the price down for taking both of those out and along with no operating systems....
i read a post that lenovo is a pain in the neck to reinstall the os because of the Intel SRT is not there persay just lenovo uses something else for that same effect...


What is your take on this
i do have some money to spend but not trying to spend a bunch of money less than 1200 so i can do some gaming but mostly buisness stuff really i know i dont need much but id like to have this so i can just do tons of work and look pretty boss when i go out and show it off because i like repping quality towards teh company for designing quality machines

so any suggestions would be awesome...


(i might just say eff it and go with a cheap one and play DODS instead and have a good screen and GPU for rendering purposes and that would be all..)

i have looked at the sager 6350 and 6110 and along with the sager 8150 and 9150 series from xotic pc but im not really down with the waiting for ever in a day because they have to build it there first then send while i could get it faster and do what i need to do asap...

Plus im getting an xbox 360 and a new ps3 mobo for my birthday payed by myself (have no friends)
haha yes i know 360 really but me and my roomates want to play games and so do im done playing battlefront 1 and 2 on ps2 and waiting to play ps3 games when my mobo is dead on the cecha01 model (first gen ps3)

any help would be awesome...

Yes i will be doing heavy timelapse batch work with LR4 and LRtimelapse with this laptop to do alot of beautiful work...im coming from a Macbook pro where i learned both these programs and im looking to get in deeper with it biggrin.gif


Thanks guys seems pretty vague but know some of you guys are pretty pro at doing this ...
i have been out of the looking up research game and for the past two weeks i have been torn between tons of laptops....

cosmetically im wlling to take a good build but again i like parts more then looks really to show hey man for a good price you get amazing performance biggrin.gif
conflicts with my idea of showing off the company but then again i show them that its RAW POWER and its amazing power that the companies have partnered up for designing such a beauty

thanks guys and much love for any help;

What I (odin2free) ordered:
Lenovo Ideapad Y580 (59345717)
Crucial m4 128GB mSata
G.Skill 1600 16gb (F3-1600C10D-16GSQ)
Intel Ultimate n-6300

New Parts:
ODD-HDD Caddy
External Enclosure ODD/Bluray


What to do:
Install New parts - Check
Install Fresh Win7- Check
SVL7 Bios Flash (whitelist wlan)- Check
Typical Process of Fresh Install- Check
Overclocking GPU- In Process
Benchmarks- In Process


I decided to go and see what windows 8 was about huh..felt as though they wanted to make it feel mac for some reason well more of a tablet then anything else...i dislike that it had to go five mins litterally went by and i said nope
Grabbed my All in One Disk and popped it in...
Restarted get to the bios and ya duh uefi...huh and it looks well horrid feels crippled and held back to be honest...specially for a computer with quality parts right...
Legacy (tron) mode enabled Optical drive first restart boots to windows 7 and start the set up

Now this is where studying before purchase and finding the guides and other users forums makes a world of difference
1. With new SSD you should typcally clean the ssd first before installing to make sure nothing is on it same with the hdd
I followed this guide
WeirdHarold's Y580 Install Thread
The step by Step is so straight forward really, you might notice i did get the m4 because well i choose either samsung or crucial when it comes to ssds and western digital and samsung f4 when it comes to hdd

After following the guide on what to do well its a fresh install...
It is important though that you do it in order
Backup#1

After drivers are installed decided to go ahead and follow hey you guessed it another well known guide here on Overclock.net
Sean Websters Windows 7 Install/Optimization Guides
Backup#2

Afrer all of that is said and done i then go ahead and install manditory programs:
A minimal list of what i use: Software List (Click to show)
Firefox:
Adobe Flash, PDF viewer
Avast Anti Virus or Avira
Comodo Firewall
CCleaner
CCleaner Enhancer
Steam
Borderlands, Day of Defeat Source (only two im playing currently )
Auslogics Disk Defrag
Paragon Backup and Recovery
Photoshop cs6 and LR4
AutoCAD
Emulators
VLC
Malewarebytes
Spy bot search and destory
ImgBurn
Alchol 120%
Tixati
7zip
CPUz
Speedfan
Teamspeak
Teamviewer
skype

REVIEW

Lenovo Ideapad Y580 is not a machine to be looked over and laughed at in my opinion. The Black/Grey color scheme on the outside view is something different until you open up to unveil the
15" Glossy 1920x1080
Full Numeric Keyboard (WOAH it feels amazing to have a full keyboard again)
Two JBL speakers to bring in the Dolby home theater experience
two stickers to remind you yes your running
intel Core i7-3630QM and Nvidia GeForce GTX660m
it feels like a computer designed for only one purpose....To bring to the table a gaming computer that is yet simple and elegant in design...not that of an apple product but of a lenovo quality machine product...
this is first glance....


Powering this is the i73630qm processor clocked at a whopping 2 .4Ghz (sarcasm). Im not intel so i have minimal experience in teh department of intel though im catching on quick..Wait then again what is actually powering this is a power supply into the battery from a electrical outlet which is feed juice from the power company of APS.. Though this seems to be handling everything i throw at it with ease... though im right now not stressing it at all until i am ready to delve into a deeper world of clocking and so forth

GPU- Powerful punching card...That is all

1. Hold off on the Xbox until E3.
2. I would go Y580. I believe Lenovo has better build quality.

A bu I'm also seeing that try sell "gaming" series which is the y series
So as fr the gpu choices on the y580 the 650 or a 660 I really would like a 680 buy I can really hold off on that
Would it be wiser for the sake of getting the 660m and a 3630qm i7 in the laptop they have a cool weekly deal thing and it helps the price significantly

I only read part of a tomhardware review and it seems that for me is have to go 660 but trying to save a few Coin

As for the xbox
When is e3 ??
I'll just get a cheap mobo for my ps3 than and fix that so I can play at least some games out there

We have a bookmans a used book store that sells electronics and such they have em there for cheap the Xbox 4g model and controllers and such I'm not needing tons of room it's just for pick me up an Jill type of thing

E3 is June and there is a strong suggestion that they will announce the next Xbox to be coming out Q4 2013 or Q1 2014.

I hope you were reading about a GTX 660M not the GTX 660. There is a BIG difference. A laptop with a GTX 680M will run you at least 1,600.

I honestly didn't read your whole post but my sister recently purchased a Lenovo Y580 on my recommendation. So far she really likes it and the 1080P screen is gorgeous. You also get the components you want (Core i7 3630QM and Geforce GTX 660M) at a very good price (she paid 980$ before taxes and shipping @ NCIX). She uses the laptop for architectural design, Photoshop CS6 and other less-intensive task. So far, I can say without a doubt that she is extremly satisfied. Also, the notebook is incredibly thin for such a powerful machine, I simply couldn't believe it at first!

This is the SKU that she bought: http://ncix.com/products/?sku=77809&vpn=59353260&manufacture=Lenovo%20Consumer

Ok i have a two grand budget but im going to go with this

lenovo Y580 from newegg(ships faster than waiting four weeks :/)
this is the link to the product
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834310662

I am also getting 16GB of memory this kit
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231582

Now im trying to figure out how this whole mSata ordeal works and how lenovo handles it
i have been reading since the last post i have made on what issues there are along with how to go about installing the OS on the mSata (128GB)
Does this support intels SRT (smart response tech.) im lost as to what they use instead and how i go about keeping the one terrabyte drive that is there so i can just use it for storage( it is a 5400rpm but im ok with that for now just need something super fast and want to utilize all internals i possibly can to bring this beast of a machine out)

so the mSata is this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148612

i am also looking for a different wifi card as i would like to have support for dualband (router is dual band capable and would like to utilize it)

any help would be appreciated im at 1200 dollars right now in upgrades and such of that nature...

Sucks no docking station for the computer but that is ok...

i am going to be getting a wireless mouse and maybe an external keyboard for playing games i like the feel of huge keys instead of laptop keys when playing video games that require you to rage on the keyboard hah
plus i would like to save the life of the onboard keyboard as much as i can when im not out and about biggrin.gif

i will be utilizing usb 3 ports fully with external drives i have
gotta do tons of editing asap and fix computers asap so i can start making money again and this is the way im going to do it


So anything else any information regarding new fresh installs bios configurations overclocking (maybe?) im really worried about computer when i install the fresh OS that it will just say nope not going to work now figure it out :/

thanks man you seriously deserve some rep cuz i know your going deffinitly help out alot with this biggrin.gif you have a beautiful machine btw that was a choice last year my brother and I really like that laptop

he got a np6110 for portable power house (over seas and backpacks everywhere so its essential for him)
i think that it is the most powerful note book at 11 inch screen on the market?

Installing an OS could not be any easier. You might as well be installing DirectX. I also had a NP 6110 it was nifty. I actually just sold this laptop and got a desktop on the way.

Make sure you buy USB 3.0 drives. The speed difference is amazing. Also make sure they have an ac adapter as i found the ones that don't have ac adapters shut down during large transfers because they run out of power.

As for the mSATA i've never used one before. I'm not sure.

Overclocking. There may be a bit on the video card on the OS layer, but not in the bios. You also can't overclock the CPU however you can use Throttlestop to keep the Turbo up at all times.

ya i know about the USB 3 power supply i only use ones that dont have power cords for travel light quick things not where i have to constantly access the drives thanks to lightroom 4 and such biggrin.gif

I looked at this thread
http://www.overclock.net/t/1325197/lenovo-ideapad-y580-windows-clean-install-guide

which seems to make sense to me as to why its a pain in the neck the more i read on other forums and other sites the more complications come up towards upgrading this computer


This makes sense to me
Im just worried about the wifi cards because i really want to utilize dual band and it looks like lenovo has yet to catch up to the world of stronger wireless...(might not be there fault at all)
so the hunt for a new wifi card is ongoing...if anybody knows anything about that let me know (i will be usiing though to at home ethernet cord but portability is a must and a stronger card would be awesome for me because well heck im sinking money into this and im going to use the heck out of it for so much stuff...(specially music and editing photos (music im wanting to get into learning just how sound works and not go crazy and become a professional or whatever just want to learn about sound and physics of it where im able to hear it through different products and such blah blah tangents)

So as of right now im looking pretty good know that 16gb of memory work with this cuz i will be using it alot
mSata is a must and following the guide is so simple and straight forward just going to use friends computer to make windows disk and recovery disks for win 7 if i do not like windows 8 which is more than likely ( then to i wll be running linux and learning that alot)
ah excited thanks guys
