Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Y500-59346619

90% Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 (59-346619) Review
Source: Think Digit English
The performance bit between the Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 and the HP ENVY dv6 is almost the same, and so is the market price (approx. Rs 66,000) of these two machines. But, while they are the closest in terms of competition, we believe that the two cater to fairly different user demographics. The IdeaPad Y500 is meant more for the user who is the power user and will use the machine for a considerable amount of gaming or fairly intensive designing work that requires a Full HD display. The dv6, on the other hand, is meant for someone who wants to do the balancing act – tiptoe between office and a spot of gaming every once in a while. But, for all the advantages of a better graphics card and a Full HD display, the Y500 does lose out with a couple of niggles with the way it is put together.

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.  


3632QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller. The speciality of the i7-3632QM is the low TDP of 35 Watt compared to 45 Watt of the other Ivy Bridge quad core CPUs (e.g. 3610QM).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays.

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.


2.9 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
