Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Y570-08626JU
Source: Inside HW
Lenovo’s Ideapad Y570 is not what you’d call a portable notebook, but it makes up for this drawback vastly with its remaining characteristics. All the latest technologies and high-performance components included provide users with very pleasant and comfortable work, gaming or multimedia enjoyment. Even some similarly priced desktop systems would have trouble competing with it – Lenovo has certainly made this a well-rounded offering. Its only real flaw that may reduce its value depending on your needs is the low display resolution, but with the very advanced and fast hardware on the other side, as well as an unbeatable price, this minus quickly fades into oblivion.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M:
As the successor to the GeForce GT 445M, the GT 555M is available in many different versions based on different chips (GF106, GF116, GF108) with different graphics memory (128 Bit, 192 Bit, DDR3, GDDR5) and varying core speeds.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
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.
2670QM: Fast Quad-core processor clocked at 2.2-3.1 GHz based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
