Lenovo IdeaPad Y570

 

A sharp-looking mainstream laptop with decent graphics and some configuration flexibility, the IdeaPad Y570 is a solid alternative to some of the better-known consumer laptop brands.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y570 looks great and has a surprising amount of configuration flexibility for a mainstream laptop

The system is brimming with bloatware, and a physical switch for GPU modes is confusing

Great gaming experience. Excellent keyboard and navigating experience. Two USB 3.0 ports. Nice speaker system. Respectable battery life
