John Dizon says:

Quick Question….Which should I buy? Acer VX 15 Or Dell Inspiron 7000.

win tang says:

I returned my computer. The display was the thing that killed it for me too, it isn’t bright enough for me, but on setting u can tweak the colors to make it look brighter. Yeah the keyboard is a pretty good, the hard drive is nice when u get the higher price version. I think the speakers need to be bigger. Overall it’s a good labtop for that price.

Alex Fili says:

there is a deal in my country for 660 euros, it is worth it?

Sittichok Poosiri says:

where did u get the Lenovo Nerve Sense ?? official site said it still unavailible.

Ádám Batta says:

Hi there, What were the highest temperatures that you got under load? (CPU GPU)
The other thing … I’m living in the EU and on the EU website of lenovo says each models of Y520 have GTX 1050M 4GB. Is that a mistake by the Lenovo or the EU models are released with 1050 only? Do you know something about it because I could not find anything about it.

Piyush Sharma says:

acer vx 15 or legion 520?

MriChinese says:

should. I get the Lenovo legion y520 or the Acer vx 15… the Acer has more bang for the buck but the y520 looks more aesthetic and the Acer ,to me doesn’t look that appealing .

DSPN00BY says:

That moment when he says the laptop is $849 but its really $1,120

Hans Schaller says:

Acer VX15 or Lenovo Legion Y520? Which one is better?

Poison1Scorpion says:

So would you choose this or the Omen 15?

Hunter Hassler says:

I know i’m not a professional computer analysis person, but on my end the screen looks good. I can’t wait for the Y720, but all i’ve been hearing is how bad the Y520 and Y720 screens are…

Ostinar Mali says:

Charles Torres says:

You deserve more views and subs. Good job on every review!

ZergNsk says:

ho, ho, im russian, but like watch this is yankee )) thx Matt ) great video

Mantas Simonaitis says:

does it have any quorks? for example i have lenovo Y700-15isk and lenovo hasn’t adjusted audio drivers (audio quality is good, but it tends to have some kind of clicking or cracking sound from speakers before the sound comes through) also very low max speed of fans and reduced pci e 3.0 to pci 2.0 speeds

Maksi333 says:

feels bad, its more than 500$ more expensive in Denmark…

Nabeel says:

i had bought it but returned to get y700. y700 is much more powerful with its design and speakers. y520 has awful low sound and bad design and fingerprint keyboard .. reason to buy y520 if one play latest games but y700 will also do that same 🙂

Aleksandras Lipatovas says:

which one to buy legion y520 or ideapad y700

Adarsh Mohanty says:

less handsome Ryan Renolds

Manthan Wadiwala says:

They copied the Alienware design.

Clive Elden says:

mustafa alkotobe says:
