Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 0633


Lenovo's 14-inch IdeaPad Y460 is a well-designed gaming/multimedia laptop--but in this price range, the competition is also bringing its A game.

Excellent CPU/GPU combo; slick design

Unimpressive battery life; gimmicky touch controls; pricey

Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 Review


Lenovo recently updated the Y-series notebook lineup, adding the 14-inch Y460 and 15.6-inch Y560 to the mix. These new models offer superior graphics options than their predecessors at the same price. We took a closer look at the smaller of the two...

Great gaming performance ; Good battery life ; Huge improvement in the looks department

System gets too hot while gaming ; Limited screen resolution options

Lenovo IdeaPad Y460


Fantastic power for its size ; Multipurpose champion

Mediocre battery life ; Horrifically glossy screen

A great compromise between power use and performance, but a compromise nonetheless.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 Review


It's not enough for a 14-inch notebook to deliver decent runtimes, a little processor grunt and pleasing looks any more; now we expect graphical excellence too. In response, Lenovo have outfitted their IdeaPad Y460 with a dedicated ATI Radeon GPU, and...

Lenovo's Watt Whiffing Gaming Powerhouse Is a Swit...


Power conservation or gaming performance? Yes you can really have both. With the slide of a switch.

Unbelievably dazzling performance. Switchable graphics give you the best of both worlds — gaming performance and battery life — at the flick of a switch

Not all features are perfectly polished: SlideNav application switcher bar is functionally useless. Noisy optical drive. Surprisingly heavy (5 pounds) for its size

Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 Review - A Review of the Lenovo IdeaPad Y460


Strong graphics and overall performance, Innovative SlideNav control, Good audio quality, Great webcam

Expensive, Narrow viewing angles, Irritating trialware

Throughout our testing, the Y460 remained relatively cool. After playing web video at full screen for 15 minutes, we measured the keyboard at only 90 degrees Fahrenheit and the touchpad at merely 88 degrees. We consider temperatures below 95 to be...

Lenovo Ideapad Y460


People are doing more on the road than ever before, including creating high definition videos, editing photos, and gaming. And there's no better way to optimize these tasks than to buy a thin and light laptop that packs a big performance punch. The...

Switchable graphics. Powerful Core i5 processor. Pleasing design. Fantastic keyboard and mouse buttons. Lightweight. Big hard drive. Impressive JBL speakers

Runs warm when the ATI graphics card is active. Pricey

If you're looking for extra horsepower on the road, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 can meet those demands.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 0633 Review


Lenovo's IdeaPad line of consumer-targeted laptops is a far cry from the traditional dry ThinkPad business systems the company is known for. We'd go so far as to call the ...

Lenovo IdeaPad Y460


The thin, stylish IdeaPad Y460 delivers gaming-class graphics performance for just over a grand. Its battery life is one of its few shortcomings.

Very good productivity, graphics performance; switchable graphics; stylish design

Reflective screen; short battery life

Portability, excellent performance, and a bold, eye-catching design are all good reasons to choose the Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 as your next thin-and-light notebook. Unfortunately, the whole point of switchable graphics is to offer the choice between...
