Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p

82% Review Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p Notebook | Notebookcheck
The experiment continues. Lenovo's IdeaPad Y500 made quite a splash when it was introduced some time ago: the 15-inch multi-purpose system offered a second Nvidia GPU as an option. The new IdeaPad Y510p has updated hardware and now features a GeForce GT 750M SLI instead of the GeForce GT 650M SLI. Can the dual-DirectX 11 notebook threaten the established high-end competition?

Lenovo’s Y50 is affordable and reasonably quick, but it does more to damage the company’s gaming reputation than to enhance it. The system’s unforgivable flaw is the display, which would be disappointing on a system sold at half the price. A low-contrast panel with poor viewing angles has no business being part of a gaming laptop.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p suffers from being a very good gaming laptop in a crowded category where it is not the very best. Despite this, it's a well-built gaming rig, and it will play even demanding high-end games without so much as a stutter. While the Editors' Choice MSI GX60 1AC-021US remains our top pick due to its longer battery life and affordability, the IdeaPad Y510p is a good machine, and worth looking at if you want gaming prowess combined with Lenovo's reliability.

Overall, we like the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p: it’s attractively designed, with top-quality ergonomics; it’s a swift performer with a decent specification; and it doesn’t cost the earth. However, the Asus N550JV – with its touchscreen and superior display – edges it in this price bracket.

Still the fastest gaming laptop under $1000

No question the Y510p SLI I5 gaming laptop makes a lot of sense: top gaming performance for the money, combined with relatively good (though TN-panel) 1080p screen, good looks, comfortable backlit keyboard, very good sound system and 1TB SSHD. The only major issues are the heat and battery performance (on SLI) with the heat being the most important.

Comment

Model:

For the performance it offers, the 15 inch Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p is a steal. Costing noticeably less than machines with similar hardware - this is the gaming rig to buy for those who couldn't afford one before. It features a minimalist design, in simple brushed black aluminum. Red tints on keys and the JBL speakers give it a few tasteful highlights. The audio is loud and clear, and it's easy to turn it up high enough to annoy the neighbors without distortion. At a rather bulky 2.9 kg, this heavy weight won’t break your back, but it’s not ultra portable either.

As should be expected, it packs a punch with graphics performance. The 1920x1080 resolution supports crisp and gorgeous color and contrast, the screen is simply bold and bright, beating out the competition. With its dual Nvidia GeForce GT 750M GPUs with 2GB of VRAM and 2.2-GHz Intel Core i7-4702MQ quad-core processor, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p performs quite well in demanding games on medium to low settings. With the power it packs, it is no surprise that the battery life is short. But this is standard when it comes to gaming laptops. This machine can also be configured differently to match a desired price point. For gamers on a budget, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p provides the best value for the performance it brings.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M SLI: High-end SLI-setup of two GeForce GT 750M, based on the Kepler-architecture and manufactured in 28nm.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

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.


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