hey friends! should i get a y510p or is thr any new gaming lappy coming around dec-jan?
(budget 75k)

Y510P is VFM in this price range so go ahead and get it and I don't think any new laptop is coming which can beat Y510P

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

Nice to know about it, currently I am playing NFS Rivals smoothly at Ultra Settings @ 1080p without any frame rate issue.

I am really confused as i want to buy a cooling pad which actually works for our laptop. Anyone who is currently using a cooler please share your experiences.

Can you please check the temp numbers and how much of a difference it makes from without cooling pad..

I would say it's about 5-7 degree celsius... Where a laptop cooler really shines is when you are using your laptop in your bed as the elevated surface helps in maintaining proper airflow... Otherwise, the vents could get blocked which hinders the cooling process... On a hard surface like a table, it is not of much use... :)
Anyway, the Y500/510p has excellent cooling and so, if you are using it on a table, it's your call if you want the laptop cooler... For soft surfaces like a bed, it's a must-buy!!! :-D

Actually i keep it elevated and without providing ample space to vents while gaming i observe temps in 80s and with bf4 max temps have touched 90 for CPU and 85 for GPU. So anything which can keep them under 80 would be nice.. I will give this cooler a look..

Has any one updated to Windows 8.1. Coz I am still holding back for a few more time before the update.

Well, I updated to Windows 8.1 about a month back and haven't faced any problem... A couple of guys were facing some problem with the 2 finger tap for right click but I don't know a lot about it cause I don't use the touchpad... Moreover, for me, if I put two fingers on the touchpad and click it, then the context menu (the one that appears on right click) appears... Am guessing that's what the 2 finger tap (or rather click) does so everythings fine for me... No driver problems on Windows 8.1... I had some trouble setting up the dual GPU Bios setup as I flashed the wrong file first (The 750m one!!! Lol!!! :mrgreen:) but flshing the right file fixed it... :-D

Btw, I think the Mods should merge the Y500 and the Y510p threads!!! :)

Has anyone performed gauge reset??

Nope... I think there's some problem with the gauge reset tool and read somewhere that people who resetted their battery gauge faced the problem of their laptop failing to charge their battery afterwards... Google it... :)

I talked lenovo rep on this and he told me that sir the only thing you need to do is a gauge reset. And than your battery will last long since the backup time of my battery is just 2 hrs on normal usage and no gaming.
