Review: Lenovo IdeaPad Y570

 

Lenovo's IdeaPad series -- the bulkier, cheaper and more consumer-friendly little sibling to the ThinkPad line -- gets little love, but why?

Great combination of performance and price. Outstanding battery life from just a six-cell unit

Hefty at six big pounds. Status lights and buttons above keyboard difficult to make out from a distance of more than eight inches. Don’t have a shovel large enough to get rid of all this preinstalled junk and upsell come-ons. Not sold on the burnt...

Lenovo IdeaPad Y570

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y570 is a big laptop capable of doing big things, but there are slimmer, better looking ones that do just as much.

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

Case design is thick, heavy, and unattractive. Higher screen resolution needed.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y570-086225U Laptop Review

 

Multimedia Nexus. Desktop replacement notebooks are a dime a dozen, and Lenovo has tossed its hat into the ring with its introduction of the IdeaPad Y570, a strange hybrid between a media center and a portable business notebook. While the last part...

NVIDIA's Optimus switchable graphics, The JBL speakers, NVIDIA's Optimus technology and the overall fit and finish of the Y570 were impressive, to say the least
