Lenovo Y50 Laptop
26 May 2015
Excerpt: If you’re not interested in customization and upgrades, then this gaming laptop is one of the best options on the market. It comes with an Intel i7 quad-core processor for terrific speed and performance, as well as equipped with Windows 8.1.
Excerpt: Here’s a question we get a lot: “What’s the best cheap gaming laptop?” Trying to answer that is tantamount to trying to recommend a budget, luxurious sports car. Lenovo, however, is hoping to champion the conundrum with its new Y50 series notebook.
Summary: When it comes to Lenovo’s laptops, they have always been associated with business.However, over the years, they’ve managed to successfully branch out to other segements and the company’s latest multimedia/gaming notebook, the Lenovo Y50-70 is proof that they can do more.
Summary: One of our favorite gaming laptops get a sharp 4K display that will make all kinds of content look better, although it's a bit of a tease, as you can't actually crank most games up to that resolution.
Pros: The Lenovo Y50 Touch 4K packs in features, including a mainstream graphics card, touchscreen, and full 4K resolution.
Cons: The 4K display looks much better than its dull 1080p predecessor, but the mid-level GPU means you won't actually be playing many games at 4K resolution.
Summary: When you see that a notebook has a 3840 x 2160p display, you expect brilliant color with precise detail. But the view on the $1,499 Lenovo Y50-70 Touch is rather...meh. The laptop offers respectable mid-level performance with a rather elegant-looking chassis and a comfortable keyboard.

Excerpt: The Lenovo Y50 Touch aims to take a make a stand in the gaming and desktop replacement market with this 15.6-inch Ultra HD model. It has 16GB of RAM and a 256GB solid state drive that make a speedy combination.
Pros: Great design, Spacious keyboard layout, Fantastic 4K Ultra HD display, Strong performance
Cons: Graphics card isn't strong enough for 4K gaming
Summary: The agony of choice. After our first review of the FHD version of the new Lenovo Y50 Gaming notebook, we are now focusing on a version with UHD display (3840x2160 pixels) and fast Samsung SSD. Full HD and matte or ultra HD and glossy? That's the question. We compare both displays.
Pros: High-end GPU for entry level price, Smart design, Brushed aluminum surface with rubberized wrist rest, Solid hinge, Display with high resolution, Loud and balanced speakers with subwoofer, Supports Nvidia Optimus, Fast SSD with large capacity, Respectable battery life, The fast and high-volume SS...
Cons: The plastic display frame seems cheap in comparison to the other notebook parts, Surfaces heat up strongly under load, Reduced performance when running on battery only, Limited turbo boost, Low feedback of the keyboard, No dedicated keys to control volume and brightness, Neither DisplayPort nor m...
