Well I would suggest you to do 2-3 times full charge (100%) and full discharge (0%) cycles and check if the problem fixes. After all these steps if you are getting good backup than nothing is required to be done but if not than think of requesting a new battery under warranty. Also select Maximum Battery Life under Lenovo Energy Management.



Hi, Welcome to the digit forums.

99% is what it goes to max. Does this twice but it is not getting better. Also on usage of just songs or one or two movies with brightness 60% battery life is just about 2 hr+

Well, the only way out for you seems to be the gauge reset tool... Btw, what happened to your battery wear level??? :-?

It is showing bloody 9% wear.

I have also checked my laptop's battery wear level for the first time using HWMonitor and was shocked to know its 11% but I am getting almost same battery backup I used to get when I got this laptop, so I am happy with it and I think these wear levels are not always accurate!

Hi Guys,

Amazing forum. It is always better to get the info from real buyers than the professional reviews :)
I am getting a deal on snapdeal.com - with the discount the y510p will cost me Rs. 68.1k

1) Is it worth buying? My main purpose is graphics design, photoshop, some video editing etc. Not much of a gamer but I do heavy duty processing and rendering. I also have a wacom intuos tablet for digital painting.

2) People who have purchased it. How is the battery life on normal use? (no gaming)

Welcome to the forum dude!
Well its definitely worth buying @ 68K. This model has got enough power to compete with an Alienware which costs 1.2+Lacs with similar specs.

Hi everyone, I'll get my y510p(59405668) in two weeks from US. I'm confused whether I can use the same AC power adapter which they provided or I have to buy the AC power adapter for india?
 
Yes you can use the same adapter, but the plug's pin which goes into the wall socket is a bit diff. most new sockets in india do work fine with it but the older ones need a small converter which just takes care of the pin size and does nothing with voltage or anything of that sort. Its costs around 20-25inr max.
See this post

PS: The sockets I have at my place work well with the US plugs too, but I stick to desi round pin plugs :p

Hi guys.. Iam confused between the models of this laptop :: :s
IdeaPad Y510p High-Performance 15.6" Multimedia Laptop from Lenovo | Lenovo (CA)
guys.. Try to suggest me a good model of this laptop..and As iam buying this laptop from canada, Can I avail international warranty?
Thanks.

About your query for international warranty, email Lenovo...

Y510p doesn't seem to be mentioned in the following page:
Lenovo Support - International Warranty Services (IN)

My Y500 was imported and since it is listed in that page, am eligible for international warranty as was confirmed by Lenovo in an email I sent them... :mrgreen:

That list may not have been updated too, especially since Y510p has been officially released in India and hence should have International warranty!!! :)


As for the models:
If you are into:
A. Heavy gaming: 59405672
B. Moderate gaming:59392623
C. Light gaming:59405661

:-D

Thanks for your reply.But how can you say that the above models are light or heavy gaming? As there are no major differences between them except the 1000$ one..

I think that GT755 can run graphics hungry games like Bf4 on high with decent FPS..
So how did you say that its for light gaming?

Thanks again :p and please clarify my doubts. :D

:facepalm:

How about going through the classification again!!!

Making it easier for you:


GT 755M SLI > GT 755 M > GT 750M

Hence, 59405672 > 59392623 > 59405661

Source: Comparison of Laptop Graphics Cards - NotebookCheck.net Tech

All the 3 cards are good, per se...

I said, choose the GT 755m if you are into moderate (and not light!!!) gaming...

I compared them relatively just so that it's easy for you...

Thus, according to your usage, choose what you need...

A quick recap:
If you are into:
A. Heavy gaming: 59405672 - GT 755m SLI
B. Moderate gaming:59392623 - GT 755m
C. Light gaming:59405661 - GT 750m

Now I wonder what I meant by "If you are into"!!! :-D

Also, adding the make of graphics card beside each model just to be sure you don't wander off again!!! :lol:
 
The 755m is just the tiniest OC 750m(+39MHz core & +100MHz MEM); you can oc(using MSI afterburner) 750m to 755m without any mods or (any) alarming temp/power consumption rise.
The 750m benchmarks on notebookcheck are for the GDDR3 version which is slower compared to the GDDR5 version lenovo offers.
The 750m gets my pick as they have already released the 750m sli ultrabay adapter, whereas the 755m is yet to hit the stores; although you could do different SLi via hacks and mods but its just not worth it.

Go for the 750m sli if you have that much $$ to blow on a laptop or go for 1x750m FHD. & get the SLi later on(note that this will be a tad expensive as the bundled offer is generally cheaper) .
