Lenovo Ideapad Y700 Touch (15


Lenovo's 15-inch Ideapad Y700 Touch might not be an obvious choice if you're in the market for a midrange gaming laptop, but with superb battery life and good performance and features for the price, it should be on your short list.

Terrific battery life. Good performance, features for the price. Decent amount of storage.

Video card may soon be obsolete. No USB-C port.

Conclusion How much you care about gaming will determine how much you're willing to spend on a laptop dedicated to it. There are screaming machines that can blast through the latest AAA titles almost as well as ultra-expensive desktops, but that...

Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-17 (80Q0001NUS)


The Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-17 is an excellent entry-level gaming laptop with a big screen and fast hardware. It can play demanding games smoothly at moderate to high settings, and you get plenty of storage, good port options, and a killer sound system in...

Nice price. Fast performance. Plenty of storage, including a solid-state boot drive. Impressive sound system.

Keyboard is small and awkwardly situated.

Conclusion The Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-17 is a well-performing gaming system, offering a smooth experience in high-end games at an affordable price. The large display looks good, and the sound system is a standout, though the keyboard sizing and location...

The Lenovo Ideapad Y700 Laptop Review

Lenovo ideapad Y700 Review: A Balanced Behemoth


There's a lot to like in a big laptop, especially if it's big on processing power. The Lenovo ideapad Y700 fits that bill with a Core i7 and dedicated Nvidia GPU. But what about build, display, battery, and other elements that make for a great machine?

Great balance of performance and price ; Excellent speakers ; Bright and vibrant display ; Runs quiet and cool

Keyboard not very crisp ; Non-touch display ; Gamers beware, limited build options ; Lid prone to smudges and fingerprints ; Lenovo achieves a near perfect balance of performance and price for this desktop replacement. The Lenovo ideapad Y700 is...

Lenovo achieves a near perfect balance of performance and price for this desktop replacement. The Lenovo ideapad Y700 is perfect for multimedia and mainstream gaming, but those looking for a dedicated gaming rig will be turned off by its limited build...

Lenovo ideapad Y700 Review: a powerful (and heavy) gaming laptop


Lenovo has a new gaming laptop that obviously follows in the footsteps of its Y50 and other past gaming machines, but with updated features and hardware to tackle the industry's most demanding games. The Lenovo ideapad Y700 gaming laptop features the...

The Lenovo ideapad Y700 is quite the capable laptop, though it limits its audience with its gamey design. Given that Lenovo makes no bones about the audience it is targeting — PC gamers — there’s nothing wrong with that, and if you’re in the market for...

Lenovo Ideapad Y700 17ISK 80Q0 Notebook Review


Barebone gamer. Lenovo is doubling down on the gaming front with the Y700 series. The successor to last year's Y70 is better than before, yet it is still lacking in features common on competing gaming models.

fast display response times, no PWM, relatively strong case quality; minor creaking, accurate colors; 85 percent sRGB coverage, strong performance for the price; no throttling when gaming, good battery life

non-upgradeable CPU and GPU, potential for major backlight bleeding, no RAID support; no NVMe, no dedicated Macro keys, no mDP, no USB Type-C, no Thunderbolt, no optical drive, only 3x USB ports, only 2x SODIMM slots

Lenovo's updated Y700 series is a reasonable improvement over the previous Y50 and Y70. Users now have a stronger chassis with two storage bays alongside the expected performance benefits from Skylake and a dedicated SSD.

Lenovo ideapad Y700 17″ Review: Portable Gaming In A Slick, High Performance Package


Over the past few years, gaming laptops have become faster, sleeker, and more portable. Our ideapad Y700 17" review takes a look at one of the latest gaming laptops from Lenovo.

Excellent performance, slick design, reasonably priced for what you get.

Higher screen resolutions and touch option would be nice to see on the 17" model, especially considering touch and UHD are options on the 15" model.
