Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p-59393383

60% Review: Ideapad Y510p, Lenovo's Only 15.6" Gaming Laptop
Source: Digital Versus English
The only gamer-dedicated laptop in Lenovo's vast catalogue, the Ideapad Y510p uses two graphics cards to provide high-performance gaming. The Ideapad Y510p is a well-built laptop that can support a wide range of uses thanks to a beefy configuration (two graphics cards with SLI, Core i7...). It's just a shame that Lenovo didn't concentrate a little more on the screen, which is very bad, and the speakers.

Model:

Under the hood of the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p, you'll find an Intel i7 quad core processor, a dual GPU system by Nvidia, and a generous 8 GB of RAM. This gives an ideal gamer's laptop at a bargain. Windows 8 is used as operating system. Audiophiles will appreciate the built-in Dolby Home Theater-certified JBL speakers.

The case is solid, but it does not look impressive at all. The Lenovo Ideapad Y510p features a stunning 15.6-inch 1080p LED backlit, anti glare screen with wide viewing angles and vivid and crisp images. This powerhouse weighs in at only 2.69 kg and competes with other slim gaming laptops in the market.

The downside of this product is its battery life of only 3 to 5 hours depending on the load. Like any other laptop in the market, it gets warm after a while of usage, but its seems to fare significantly better than the rest of the pack. Overall, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p can be considered a great gaming laptop with great value for your money.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M SLI: High-end SLI-setup of two GeForce GT 755M, based on the Kepler-architecture and manufactured in 28nm.

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.  


4700MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» 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. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


2.7 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
