Reviews for the Lenovo Ideapad Y700-15-80NW0010US

Performance is most important to gamers, and the Y700 Touch did great in all of our tests. The Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad core processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M dedicated graphics, and 16GB of DDR4 memory do a really great job. I was able to play all of my favorite games, and quite well. Modern games like Star Wars Battlefront, GTA V, and Paragon played just fine. Not only is this performance great for gaming, but you have a pretty powerful system for multimedia, photo and video editing, and more! It was nice having a powerful machine on the go that did not slow me down if I had too many Chrome tabs open or I wanted to edit a few photos in Photoshop.

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.
