Lenovo Ideapad Y700 Touch (15

 

Lenovo's 15-inch Ideapad Y700 Touch might not be an obvious choice if you're in the market for a midrange gaming laptop, but with superb battery life and good performance and features for the price, it should be on your short list.

Terrific battery life. Good performance, features for the price. Decent amount of storage.

Video card may soon be obsolete. No USB-C port.

Conclusion How much you care about gaming will determine how much you're willing to spend on a laptop dedicated to it. There are screaming machines that can blast through the latest AAA titles almost as well as ultra-expensive desktops, but that...

Keyboard is small and awkwardly situated.

Lenovo ideapad Y700 Review: A Balanced Behemoth

 

There's a lot to like in a big laptop, especially if it's big on processing power. The Lenovo ideapad Y700 fits that bill with a Core i7 and dedicated Nvidia GPU. But what about build, display, battery, and other elements that make for a great machine?

Great balance of performance and price ; Excellent speakers ; Bright and vibrant display ; Runs quiet and cool

Keyboard not very crisp ; Non-touch display ; Gamers beware, limited build options ; Lid prone to smudges and fingerprints ; Lenovo achieves a near perfect balance of performance and price for this desktop replacement. The Lenovo ideapad Y700 is...

Lenovo achieves a near perfect balance of performance and price for this desktop replacement. The Lenovo ideapad Y700 is perfect for multimedia and mainstream gaming, but those looking for a dedicated gaming rig will be turned off by its limited build...

Lenovo ideapad Y700 Review: a powerful (and heavy) gaming laptop

 

Lenovo has a new gaming laptop that obviously follows in the footsteps of its Y50 and other past gaming machines, but with updated features and hardware to tackle the industry's most demanding games. The Lenovo ideapad Y700 gaming laptop features the...

The Lenovo ideapad Y700 is quite the capable laptop, though it limits its audience with its gamey design. Given that Lenovo makes no bones about the audience it is targeting — PC gamers — there’s nothing wrong with that, and if you’re in the market for...
