Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p gaming laptop offers modular upgrades and a sleek design.

An Intel Core i7 processor and dual-GPU system offers solid performance in gaming and productivity. Swappable Ultrabay options let you reconfigure your system as needed. Display, sound, and keyboard are all well made.

Short battery life.

Conclusion The Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p suffers from being a very good gaming laptop in a crowded category where it is not the very best. Despite this, it's a well-built gaming rig, and it will play even demanding high-end games without so much as a...

Packing dual GPUs, a 1080p display and JBL speakers, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p is a fantastic gaming notebook for shoppers on a budget.

Acceptable maintenance possibilities; Moderate noise development; Bright non-glare screen; Performance-money ratio; Backlit keyboard; Decent sound; UltraBay feature

CPU's Turbo sometimes disabled; Unfavorable interface positioning; Sensitive screen bezel; SLI without graphics switching; Wobbly touchpad; Bulky power supply; Micro-stuttering

15-inch gaming machines like the Gigabyte P25W, the One K56-3N2, the MSI GE60H, the Schenker XMG A503 or the Schenker W503.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p - One Good Turn Deserves Another

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p features an innovative "Ultrabay" features that lets users install an add-on graphics module for added graphics performance. But does this turn the IdeaPad Y510p into a bona fide gaming notebook? We find out.

Good performance via Ultrabay ; Generous amount of RAM ; Attractively priced ; Above average audio performance

SLI performance can be erratic ; No flash storage ; Mushy trackpad ; Compromised keyboard

Powerful, latest-generation CPU and Nvidia SLI graphics deliver excellent performance, Versatile Ultrabay offers choice of optical drive or second graphics card, Comfortable backlit keyboard

Short battery life, Hard drive with SSD cache rather than full SSD, Unnecessary amount of RAM in test configuration

Overall, the $1,599 top-end model of the Y510p is a good option for gamers, as long as you can look past the lack of real solid-state storage and the non-touch screen's narrow vertical viewing angles. But if you really want a good value, as we said,...
