Lenovo IdeaPad Y50 Review

Digitaltrends
15 December 2014
  • Conclusion: Lenovo’s Y50 is affordable and reasonably quick, but it does more to damage the company’s gaming reputation than to enhance it. The system’s unforgivable flaw is the display, which would be disappointing on a system sold at half the price.

  • Conclusion: Testing the Lenovo Y50-70 with Western Digital SSHD turned out to be rather challenging. At a basic level, we feel that they're interesting laptops as they combine a swift Intel Core i7 or Core i5 processor with a GeForce GTX 860M. The performance of the Maxwell-based GTX 860M is quite good.

  • 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.

LAPTOP Magazine
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.
