Lenovo Y70 Touch

 

The Lenovo Y70 Touch is an entry-level gaming laptop with a solid mix of performance and battery life and a rare, but welcome, 17-inch touch screen.

Large 17-inch touch display. JBL speakers and subwoofer provide good sound. Comfortable keyboard. Solid performance in gaming and productivity alike.

Keyboard could be spread out a bit more. Battery life falls a bit short.

Conclusion The entry-level gaming category is a bit crowded, but Lenovo has delivered a solid system at a reasonable price. The overall performance isn't mind-blowing, but it will support current-generation games with decent resolution and frame rates....

Lenovo Y70 Notebook Review

 

Touchscreen gamer. Lenovo launches the biggest IPS touchscreen Y Series model yet with the 17.3-inch Y70. Features remain largely unchanged from the Y50, including the GTX 860M GPU. For $1399, can this sleek black and red powerhouse hold its own...

Attractive brushed aluminum and rubberized matte surfaces, Very good CPU and GPU performance, No GPU throttling, Bright and large IPS touchscreen, Great contrast with accurate colors, Good sound from stereo speakers and subwoofer, Upgradeable RAM and...

Reduced CPU and GPU performance on battery power, CPU Turbo Boost is short-lived, Limited number of ports, No GPU options outside of the GTX 860M, Surfaces are difficult-to-clean fingerprint magnets, Creaking on the rear of the unit, Slow system...

The Lenovo Y70 Touch addresses the major issue we found on the standard Y50. The underwhelming matte TN panel on the smaller model is now a bright edge-to-edge glass IPS panel with outstanding color reproduction and contrast, especially for a...

Lenovo Y70 Touch Review and Ratings

 

The 17-inch Lenovo Y70 Touch delivers solid graphics performance, a beautiful 1080p touch screen, superb audio, and a comfy keyboard for a bargain price of $1,499.

Great value ; Attractive aluminum and soft-touch design ; Gorgeous 1080p touch screen ; Rich audio quality ; Comfortable keyboard

Only two USB 3.0 ports ; Performance can't match considerably more expensive rigs

While gaming laptops aren't known for their battery life, the Y70 Touch lasted a respectable four hours in our strenuous video playback test, getting a bit of revenge on the toplofty MSI and Asus.

Lenovo Y70 Touch review

 

A massive gaming laptop for a great price – what's the catch?

Slick design ; Decent graphics power ; Surprisingly good speakers ; Attractive price

Short battery life ; Poor keyboard design ; Too few ports for size ; Desk space hog

If you can look past its large size and puzzling design flaws, here's a gaming notebook with a unique design and capable hardware for a reasonable price.

Lenovo Y70 Touch is a fully loaded 17-inch gaming laptop (hands-on)

 

Lenovo's cult favorite gaming PC collection is getting a new entry in the form of the 17.3-inch Y70 Touch.

Sarah Tew/CNET The Lenovo Y70 Touch will be available beginning in October, starting at $1,300. Pricing and worldwide availability has not yet been announced, but converted pricing would be about £790, or AU$1,400.

Good on paper, poor in person

 

I'll be removing the hybrid drive, tossing it in a pile to rust and replacing it with an SSD.

Great screen size, touchscreen is convenient but not why I bought it.

Battery doesn't last very long, hybrid drive doesn't deliver as advertised, and secure boot has completely turned it into a brick after a windows update. It is now stuck between "installing updates", "unable to install" and tons of errors once logged...

Fast But Freezes Randomly

 

I've tried everything to resolve this stuttering issue in games or while watching movies. There are countless threads on the internet with people who have the same or similar Lenovo laptops with the same exact issue, and there IS NO SOLUTION. Don't get...

Beautiful Large Screen Great backlit keyboard Basic tasks are extremely fast

All video games freeze randomly for 1-3 seconds every couple of minutes Comes preinstalled with Superfish bloatware which creates a big a security problem on your computer.
