Entry-level portable gaming. While Lenovo's Y40 clearly isn't the best choice for hardcore gamers, there's no question that the sleek 14-inch system with its current-generation i7 Haswell CPU, dedicated Radeon GPU and 256 GB SSD has plenty to offer for its $850 asking price, even though the display doesn't quite measure up.
70% Lenovo IdeaPad Y40 Review

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y40 is a shining example of how to provide value. This 14” gaming notebook excels in most areas even without taking into account its price. Its noteworthy highlights include a 1080p anti-glare display, attractive design, solid construction, good keyboard and clickpad, and usable performance for most of today’s games. It has a class leading six-plus hour battery life and even great speakers. We wish the display was more colorful and had better viewing angles, but found little else to criticize.

60% This sleek, budget gaming laptop is all looks

With understated features aplenty packed into its hood, the Lenovo Y40 impresses with its sleek design and premium build quality for the price. The Y40 might be the crowning victor among multimedia laptops, but Lenovo is pushing this as a gaming laptop, which simply won't do. If you buy this laptop to play the latest games, you will be frustrated and disappointed with its poor performance. The Y40 is too pricey to fully recommend as a budget multimedia machine, and simply isn't punchy enough to be a sufficient mobile gaming rig.

80% Lenovo Y40 review: An understated 14-inch gaming laptop for less than $1000
Source: PC World English
All told, Lenovo has done an exceptional job with the Y40. It has the Lenovo-ness (simple design, great input ergonomics) that has won the company legions of fans, it’s fast, and it games well enough for the average player. There’s not a lot more you could ask for in a 14-inch laptop in this price range.

Lenovo continues to impress me with its ability to offer gaming laptops at affordable prices. For $949, shoppers get a sleek-looking 14-inch notebook with solid overall performance and long battery life. However, while the AMD Radeon R9 M275 GPU isn't a lightweight, you won't be fragging or questing at the maximum settings. I also wish the notebook featured a better display and keyboard.

Comment

AMD Radeon R9 M275: Upper middle-class GPU, based on the same chip as its Radeon HD 8870M predecessor.

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.  


4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

2.034 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
