Lenovo Ideacentre Y900 RE review


Lenovo has had a semisecret side business for years, selling decent gaming PCs at reasonable prices. The Lenovo Y-series gaming laptops have always been of interest to me, as they offered excellent value for a very mainstream combination of Core i7...

The Lenovo Y900 includes the right processor/graphics card combo for virtual reality, offers easy access to its spacious interior and includes a premium keyboard and mouse.

The huge tower case is bland, with just enough gamer-centric touches to not blend in. No options for high-end features like liquid cooling.

Hitting the sweet spot for price and performance in a VR-ready PC, the Lenovo Ideacentre Y900 is a safe mainstream choice to pair with your HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headset.

Lenovo ideacentre Y900 Gaming PC review: A sports car in a world of stationwagons


After just few weeks with the Lenovo ideacentre Y900 I knew I was dealing with something marvelous.

Look-at-me design that is well executed with attention to details that carry over to accessories and peripherals. Blazing performance and power that can handle just about anything you throw at it. Future-proofed with up-to-date specs and made to be...

Price a concern for some. Polarizing styling. What we loved about it, is not for everyone.

I’m as much of a hardcore gamer as I am a professional race car driver. That much is clear. But how often do we daydream about the things we want vs the things we have? My college job didn’t send me running joyfully back to my humble Civic; it made me...

Lenovo Ideacentre Y900 Gaming Desktop Review


Taken on its own, the Lenovo Ideacentre Y900 ($899 starting; $1,599 as reviewed) is an impressive desktop for those looking to get into PC gaming. Its Core i7 processor and GTX 970 graphics can handle just about any modern game without causing issues,...

Strong gaming performance ; Sleek design ; Tool-free upgradability ; Useful peripherals

Pricier than competition

While somewhat pricey, the Lenovo Y900 offers strong gaming performance within a sleek, easy-to-upgrade design.
