Lenovo IdeaPad Y470 Review
Source: Student Buying Guide English
The Y470 laptop, aside from a couple of build and design issues, is nearly perfect and fits my needs well. It packs some serious hardware, has the cooling system to handle it, looks great, and has the sound and video capabilities to make you feel like your getting blown away like the guy in that old Maxell commercial. If you are willing to sink more money into the Y470 after purchase, installing the mSATA SSD, which retails for around $199 from NewEgg.com, really helps the machine fly. If fast boot times get you excited you’ll be impressed by the 12-second boot time I get with the Y470 with the mSATA SSD installed. I highly recommend the IdeaPad Y470 as a laptop choice, especially if you are able to catch it on sale and find a coupon to sweeten the deal.

Lenovo reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M:

Performance-level graphics card for laptops based on the old 400M series but with support for DDR3 at 900MHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

2410M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 


14.0: 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.25 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.3 kg:


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
