The Lenovo IdeaPad Y560 home entertainment laptop sells for a price of Rs. 51,190. For that price, you get a very good all-purpose laptop which has very good hardware configuration and offers very good performance -- gaming included -- at a very good price. Unless you want a smaller, 14-inch laptop for home use -- in which case consider the Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG or the Dell Inspiron 14R from our Top 5 Mainstream Laptops list -- we wholeheartedly recommend the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560 as our No.1 choice for a home entertainment laptop, currently.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y560 has some serious firepower - it has an Intel Core i7-720QM (1.6Ghz ) processor, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 graphics chip with 1GB RAM, JBL stereo speakers and Bluray combo drive.

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.

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

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


330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
