I have an older Lenovo ideapad y500 barely ever used I mean it's been in a box on a shelf in the closet for about 2 years, It's in Mint condition. My question is, what is the point of the M.2 SSD for? See I have taken it out and it doesn't affect the performance or anything, absolutely everything works as it should and as it always has. I've tested the M.2 SSD with HD Tune Pro, and everything is good and everything is good through Intel S.M.A.R.T as well. So WTH did they charge me a guestimate of around $120.00 extra for a SSD that seems to be pointless? I'll post full specs below. I got a Sager NP9170 for Christmas 2 months after I purchased this Lenovo y500 that's why I parked it, the Sager had been hit by Lightning so I brought out the Lenovo. But it's apples and oranges here, and absolutely everything is locked on the Lenovo, WTH do they do this? Also is there some way i can unlock the CPU and GPU's? I think she'll run more like the Sager if I can somehow get this thing unlocked. Maybe the appropriate direction and I could beef this Lenovo up, If not Hell I'm going to sell it.
ANYONE NEED A FAST NEW LIKE LAPTOP? ANY TAKERS OUT HERE? LOL
Thanks So Much!

I recently bought a "Lenovo Ideapad Y500". I like it a lot, but there is one big problem: the games doesn´t run properly.
On notebookcheck.com "Max Payne 3" gets around 70 fps on medium. I get 8-15 fps on medium with some settings turned off.
"Red Faction: Armageddon" gets 8-19 fps.
On notebookcheck.com "Metro 2033" gets around 80 fps on high. I get 20-30 fps on high with some settings turned off.
All three games were tested in both DirectX 9 and 11. The fps i wrote about is from DirectX 9.
