Lenovo Ideacentre Y710 Cube Review and Ratings

 

The Y710 Cube brings high-end GeForce graphics, all-the-way i7 muscle, and good value to a lean, mean gaming PC you can grab by the handle.

Excellent gaming performance, as configured ; Compact design, with a carry handle ; Cool, quiet operation while gaming ; Tool-less access to internals

No USB Type-C port or SD reader ; Case lighting is only one color ; Internal wiring could be neater ; Included SSD isn’t PCI Express

The Lenovo Ideacentre Y710 Cube is an SFF desktop that gets much more right than it does wrong.

Lenovo Ideacentre Y710 Cube review

 

A LAN-friendly gaming PC with native Xbox One controller support

Compact design ; Xbox controller button ; GTX 1080 power

Expensive ; Questionable upgradeabilty

Lenovo IdeaPad Y710-200

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y710-200 is a desktop replacement notebook aimed at gamers and home theatre users. It's big, well-equipped and reasonably powerful,...

Good application and multitasking performance, high-definition screen, HDMI output, notebook screen can be used as a second monitor for your existing PC or notebook

Game Zone' isn't located to the left of the keyboard, no optical audio output, screen looks grainy, no Gigabit networking, no digital TV tuner, no remote

Lenovo thrills us with many useful features on this IdeaPad Y710-200, but it fumbles the ball a little in its implementation of the 'Game Zone'. It's also let down by a lack of Gigabit networking and a digital TV tuner.

Lenovo Ideacentre Y710 Cube

 

Who said that gaming PCs had to be big and overbearing? With the Ideacentre Y710 Cube, Lenovo has crafted a high-spec PC that you can easily move around, one that can handle games in 4K.

A fantastic-looking PC, but the slow SSD and choice of processor feel limiting at this price.
