The Ideapad Y900's M.2 SSD is performing as it should, and its HDD is doing better than some competitor products.

Battery Tests

One issue with the Ideapad Y900 is that it doesn't disable the GTX 980M and use the CPU's integrated graphics in non-gaming scenarios. Its battery life isn't the best, but it's designed to be a portable gaming machine and features such as overclocking are only available when plugged in.
