Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560-06465AU

80% Lenovo IdeaPad Y560 15.6-inch Thin And Light Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
The IdeaPad Y560 offers some unique features for an $1100 15-inch laptop including a Blu-ray drive and switchable ATI graphics. The switchable graphics will be very important as those wanting long battery life will need to turn the dedicated graphics off otherwise they will suffer below average battery life. The unique SlideNav feature also offers a unique way to launch frequent applications quickly.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730: The HD 5730 is a higher clocked HD 5650 (and therefore not based on the desktop HD 5700 series). It does not support GDDR5 and therfore performs like a middle class graphics card with DirectX 11.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

460M: The Core i5-460M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-2.8 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
