Review Update Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p (GT 755M SLI) Notebook


Power boost. Lenovo has enhanced the graphics performance of its successful IdeaPad Y510p. The device is now available with either a GeForce GT 750M (SLI) or a GeForce GT 755M (SLI). We grabbed the brand new dual-GPU version and compared its...

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.

Review Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p Notebook


The experiment continues. Lenovo's IdeaPad Y500 made quite a spla

Easy to maintain and upgrade; Noise is well controlled; Outstanding performance; Matte Full-HD screen; Backlit keyboard; Easy recovery; JBL speakers; Ingenious UltraBay; ExpressCache; Fair price; 2x USB 3.0

No CPU Turbo under heavy load; Delicate high-gloss elements; Port distribution far from ideal; High temps; Throttling under maximum load; Not a lot of accessories included; Battery life could be better; Wobbly touchpad; Micro-stuttering is an issue;...

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

Like an assassin in a business suit, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p has a sleek, almost professional look that hides powerful gaming hardware within. Lenovo's gaming laptops have always been something of a contradiction, pushing beyond the company's...

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510P Review


The Lenovo IdeaPad Y510P manages to offer strong performance while remaining relatively cost-friendly. Keep reading to see what we really like about this gaming laptop.

Portable Design (for gaming notebook) ; Versatility via Ultrabay ; Solid Performance at Affordable Price

Poor Battery Life

With its portable form factor, strong performance and affordable price point the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510P delivers on all fronts. Equipped with dual NVidia GT 750M GPUs, 16GB of RAM and a 2.2 GHz fourth generation i7 processor the Y510P is able to tackle...

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p


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

Very good graphics performance; Excellent 1080p display; Powerful JBL speakers; Affordable price

A bit heavy for 15-inch notebook; Some keys shrunken; Below-average battery life

Gamers looking to buy a powerful system without breaking the bank will find a lot to love in the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p. For only $1,299, the notebook comes loaded with a speedy Haswell quad-core processor, dual Nvidia GPUs in SLI configuration and a 1TB...

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

Expert Review


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,...

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p


When the IdeaPad Y510p arrived at the PC Pro office, it was clear its focus is high-performance gaming. With a pitch-black chassis and blood-red backlit keyboard, it's reminiscent of Alienware's intimidating range of dedicated gaming laptops, yet its...

A powerful, well-priced desktop replacement let down only by a below-par display

Great budget gaming laptop


This laptop has served me well for a little over two years now, and is still going strong. Runs Fallout 4 well, along with every other game I've thrown at it.

It could use some more RAM, but that's a pretty simple upgrade if I ever got around to actually doing it. The stereo speakers don't seem to work quite right. It seems to only play one side of songs, if you know what I mean.
