Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Y730
Source: Comp Reviews
Lenovo's IdeaPad Y730 is designed as a consumer friendly desktop replacement. Rather than a super high performance model, it is designed as a more well rounded general purpose design. This means that it comes with fairly average specifications. While it does lack a few of the newer interfaces, it won't impact many individuals. It still retains one of the best keyboards on the market though. At least it is fairly well priced compared to many of is competitors.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650: The Hd 3650 is a middle class graphics card (in 2008) and compareable to an 8600M GT GPU from Nvidia. It is fabricated in 55nm process and due to Avivo video engine the graphic card can support the processor with several video operations (HD video too).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Intel Core 2 Extreme: The fastest Core 2 Duo variants of Intel are called Core 2 Extreme. Technically, these processors are based on a Merom/Penryn (X9000) core like all other Core 2 Duo processors, too.
The X9100 is the fastest dual-core of the Core 2 series and thanks to a free multiplicator can be overclocked easily. Later the expensive X9100 was substituted by the cheaper and more power saving T9900 (with a fixed multiplicator).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
