7 October 2014
  • Summary: Overall, the Y50-70 Touch can't hold a candle to better-equipped models that don't cost that much more. For example, the $1,649 Gigabyte P25X offers beastly graphics with more than 7 hours of battery life.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y50-70 (59424712) Notebook Review Update

29 August 2014
  • 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.

Lenovo Y50 Touch

15 August 2014
  • Summary: With the Y50 Touch, Lenovo has created a reasonably priced, not-too-big gaming laptop that doesn't look like a throwback. But the most serious PC gamers may want to hold out for a better display and faster GPU.
  • Pros: The Lenovo Y50 Touch has great style for a gaming laptop, plus a touchscreen, and it balances performance, size, and price to the benefit of mainstream gamers.
  • Cons: The display suffers from poor viewing angles and the midlevel graphics card means you can't run newer games at the highest detail settings.
