Lenovo IdeaPad Y510

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 is a well-designed, light, thin and reliable notebook boasting the latest technology for the ultimate multimedia experience. Powered by duo Intel Core processors for entertainment, games and more, the Y510 should be a favourite...

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 delivers outstanding performance in audiovisual applications.

: The VeriFace feature is very gimmicky and was found wanting.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510-300

 

Although Lenovo is traditionally synonymous with business platforms, its new Y510-300 IdeaPad represents a bold step towards consumer notebooks. With ...

Attractive design, good sound and connectivity, built-in webcam

Limited viewing angle, facial recognition is not a viable security measure and One Key Recovery can cause problems for novice users due to inconvenient partitioning

The Y510-300 is a fairy decent all-purpose notebook suitable for those with a strong budget and an eye for design. With good connectivity and strong hardware performance, just make sure you use the D drive after purchase.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 (non-Australian model - not rated)

 

Lenovo has long been a strong force in the business notebook market, and has seemingly opposed or chosen to ignore the ever growing consumer market, t...

Design, easy access power-mode button, facial recognition (while gimmicky is still kind of cool)

Fairly average results from the Dolby tests

Lenovo's first reach into the booming consumer-notebook market looks to be a good one. The IdeaPad Y510 has got style and function, now we just have to see the local build and we'll be happy.

Lenovo Lenovo IdeaPad Y510

 

Lenovo's ThinkPad line is synonymous with business class, but the company's newer IdeaPad series tries to fly coach. In fact, Lenovo's sub-$1000 IdeaPad Y510 vaults into the upper reaches of our most recent all-purpose laptops chart, largely on the...

Hardy construction ; A multimedia machine with great speakers

Anti-glare screen actually caused glare

Well-built laptop provides middle of the road performance and a sizable hard disk for a good price.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510

Solid construction; reasonably priced; face-recognition software that actually works; decent battery life.

Fixed configuration; overly glossy screen; no Bluetooth.

Lenovo's entry into the consumer laptop market with the 15-inch IdeaPad Y510 provides ThinkPad-like quality but the design still comes off as a little buttoned-up.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 consumer laptop has a great look at a great price, but it could use more configuration options.

Good-looking, textured design. Frameless widescreen is sleek. Keyboard isn't like a ThinkPad's, but it's nice. Five speakers and Dolby surround sound. Budget price.

Available through online retailers and Office Depot only. Limited configurations. No extended battery option. ; Watch the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 Video Review!

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 Review

 

The IdeaPad Y510 is a solid first notebook for Lenovo's new consumer line. The robust sound system and convenient facial recognition software help this budget machine stand out from the pack, even if the orange accents won't appeal to everyone. The...

Feature-packed for the price, Sleek frameless LCD, Responsive facial-recognition capabilities, Impressive speakers, Button for power management

Heavier than competing 15.4-inch systems, Overly reflective glossy screen

The Y510 is another classic example of multimedia functionality at the cost of system performance.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 Review

 

The name ThinkPad has been synonymous with business for years and remains one of the single most popular notebook brands for corporate road warriors. But what about average consumers? This is where Lenovo's all new IdeaPad line of notebooks comes to...

Excellent built-in speakers ; Solid construction ; Attractive design ; Nice one-touch power management

Overly glossy/reflective display ; A little heavy compared to competition

Sure, we would have liked to see an HDMI port and dedicated graphics option (here in the US) for a can't-miss multimedia package. But the lack of these features is hardly a deal breaker for most consumers. In fact, the only "serious" negative issue...
