A Good Idea? The $1000 you'll put down for a Y580 will net you high-end performance from some of the top-end Ivy Bridge and Kepler processors. Is this Lenovo best-seller a must-have for gamers and multimedia users on-the-go?

100% Lenovo Y580 15.6-inch Laptop Review
Source: Think Computers English
Beyond looks the Y580 is a definite powerhouse. The quad core Intel i7-3610QM can handle pretty much any task a normal user would throw at it and more intensive tasks like video editing and Photoshop. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M discrete graphics will allow you to play pretty much any game out there, but if you want to play them at the full 1920 x 1080 resolution you may need to turn the settings down a bit. For the most part you can play games at high or medium settings and they will be smooth and crisp. Most people gaming on a laptop can accept lower resolutions or settings. For those wanting this to be something like a desktop replacement this is pretty close.

The Y580 is not only a beautifully styled laptop, it also offers great performance in just about every area. It feels like it will take a fair amount of abuse, which is what it will get if the laptop is purchased for a student. The discrete NVidia GeForce GTX 660m graphics give the Y580 much more responsiveness in video that would bring the integrated Intel HD 4000 to a crawl, but gamers will not be able to use the full 1920 x 1080 resolution without dropping the frame rate to an unacceptable level.

Lenovo’s IdeaPad Y580 is unquestionably an appealing, solid performer, particularly if you consume movies and music and prefer a 15-inch display for multitasking—perhaps editing documents while number-crunching with the keyboard’s separate numeric pad. While the Y580’s $1,699 list price may lead some to the comparable Dell XPS 15, which was superlative in our tests, or Apple's $1,799 MacBook Pro (without Retina display), as the song says, you better shop around.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 gives plenty of bang for the buck and almost entirely eliminates the need for a desktop altogether. It features a dazzling screen with 1080p resolution, a built-in Blu-ray player, and even a full-sized keyboard on top of superlative multimedia and gaming capabilities. While the HP Envy 17 (2012) offers a similar smorgasbord of features, the Y580 nonetheless outguns it while costing nearly $400 less. For these reasons, we're willing to overlook its so-so battery life, and it rightfully earns its place as our Editors' Choice for media laptops.

With Lenovo dropping out of the larger 17-inch laptop market, they have shifted their 15-inch IdeaPad Y580 to be their high performance laptop. The new Ivy Bridge processor with NVIDIA graphics give it superb performance regardless of the type of application you intend to use. Be warned though, heavy use can cause some excessive noise from the cooling fan.

Serious gamers who want the highest frames rates and graphics details all at full-HD resolution will prefer a dedicated gaming laptop that has a more powerful graphics card. However, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 works very well as an all-round multimedia and entertainment system that can also handle some casual gaming action when it required.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 delivers beefy specs and fast performance for a reasonable price. For $1,099, consumers walk away with a powerful Core i7 quad-core Ivy Bridge processor, Nvidia GTX Graphics, a dazzling 1080p display and a Blu-ray drive. While the design doesn't wow, overall this multimedia machine is a steal for gamers on a budget.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


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

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M:

High-end graphics solution as part of the 600M series and the slowest enthusiast GTX model.

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


Intel Core i5:

3210M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 GPU, core clock 2.5 - 3.1 GHz

3230M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 GPU, core clock 2.6 - 3.2 GHz

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.  

3610QM:

An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.8 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.

2.82 kg:


81.23%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
