Thanks mate

Guys how future proof is this, precisely for casual gaming, and occasional video and photo editing will this serve for 2-5 year's.

How much does the laptop and charger together weigh
More than 3.5kg approx.

How much does the laptop and charger together weigh

Around 3 Kg (Laptop=2.7Kg+Adaptor=350g)

Few more doubts:

1)My laptop turns itself off when battery remains is 6%, is this happening with you all, how to fix it?
2)I have seen you guys talking about playing games at low, medium or high settings, how do you configure that?
3)How much battery backup you guys get, i get around 2.30hrs only.
4)How to check display type and resolution?
5)Do you guys play games by removing the battery and connecting it to power? Or keep the battery on and plug it in, is it safe to remove battery and play?
6)How to check battery wear level?

The other one is:
Hey guys, i have a question on how to set nvidia graphics card on battery as well.. I AM PLAYING NFS RUN AND IT KEEPS ON PLAYING ON INTEL CARD UNTIL I Connect my battery. I have checked and set 3d settigns and physx viewer in nvidia to gt755m but still whenever i play on battery it always uses the intel one. Also set the default as nvidia and power mode to high performance.

Thanks again, thanks for all the help that you do!

All your questions are answered in detail by manukoleth but I would like to clarify question 7...
The battery in Y510P is not powerful enough to power 45W Core i7 and 50W GT755M so to save the long life of Li-Po battery it (GT755M) automatically goes into low power mode when on battery. Its a gaming laptop and not an Ultrabook!

gt 750m is a 33-35W card.. 755 will be around 2W more...

but yes... you are right about the battery. its not powerful enough to supply enough power to both.

Anyone found out a way to remap the Fn keys, like Fn+arrows controls volume and brightness remapped to something closer (not the whole keyboard apart). Like Fn+left arrow >> Fn+z and/or Fn+right arrow>>Fn+x. A mute button is also missing.
Such a lame keyboard setup :(
Why is there no mute button? Its like telling your laptop to stfu but seems i cant anymore :evil:

Use this command in the command prompt after running it is administrator mode (Run as administrator)

powercfg.exe /setdcvalueindex SCHEME_CURRENT SUB_BATTERY BATLEVELCRIT 1

this would set the critical level to 1%. Please not that at 1% the PC would be in capable of hibernating properly.

also you can change "1" to any value even "0". Guess this helps.

Get a service report from the service centre and then file a DOA with lenovo. This should work.

Playing BF 4 multiplayer at 1080p High settings and no AA
Fps- ~35-40
Temps CPU- 80-90 C
GPU - 81-83 C

Nice. This is with cooling pad or without? and why no AA? does the gpu performance decrease if enabled?
*********
Any1 tried AC4 or tried BF4 with different settings than above?
