A familiar refresh. The jump from the Y50 to the 15.6-inch Y700 brings about a few important upgrades, but there are still some major holes in terms of features and accessibility that have yet to be implemented.
Lenovo Laptop Review: Ideapad Y700
Source: The Cheat Sheet English
With the next generation of NVIDIA graphics processors hitting the market and finding their way into laptops without the significant downgrade they’d usually get, we’re going to be seeing a lot of powerful gaming laptops available soon. In other words, now is not the time to invest heavily in a gaming laptop running older hardware. If you want a serious gaming laptop, hold your horses for a few months and then see what the market has to offer. At that point, you may be able to get the Ideapad Y700 at a lower price, or perhaps Lenovo will have a new model featuring NVIDIA’s 10-series GPUs.

80% Lenovo Ideapad Y700 Touch (15")
Source: PC Mag English
The 15-inch Lenovo Ideapad Y700 Touch can't quite compete with either in terms of gaming performance, but it beats the MSI GE72 6QD Apache Pro and even Lenovo's own Y700-17 on value and compensates for what it lacks with a touch screen and top-notch battery life. If you're drop-dead serious about squeezing the most you can from today's biggest games without squeezing your bank account dry, you'd be better off going with a GTX 980M–equipped model like the Acer or the pricier MSI GT72 Dominator Pro G-1438. But if you consider the touch screen and almost-as-good gaming for most of a full day off-plug viable substitutes, the Y700 Touch is worth a look.

Lenovo is positioning the Y700 as a multimedia laptop, more than a gaming machine and for that, we feel it delivers very well. It costs Rs. 99,990 and if you buy it from the company's store, you'll be able to pick up some optional gaming accessories at a discount. It's expensive but then again, which true gaming laptop isn't? Unlike others, the Y700 also boasts of unique functionality like Intel's RealSense camera setup, which can be used for security and some leisure apps. Overall system and gaming performance is good, with a comfortable keyboard and very good set of speakers that deliver an immersive audio experience. Lenovo's software suite is also well designed and functional.

From a strict performance standpoint, the Lenovo Ideapad Y700 rises above both the Pavilion and the Inspiron. Its design unmistakably marks it as a gaming laptop, with just enough flourish and angularity to let everyone know your computer is primarily means business.

When we reviewed the IdeaPad Y700’s predecessor in 2014, the Y50 Touch, we knocked it for its lackluster display and slow hard drive. Lenovo made it impossible for us to make the same complaints twice this time around; the 15.6-inch Y700 now has a positively beautiful IPS display, and it includes a speedy 128GB SSD for the OS in addition to a 1TB hard drive for storage.

"Budget" and "gaming laptop" are rarely said in the same sentence. Lenovo is one of the few companies to offer a relatively affordable true powerhouse gaming laptop in this price range. Some call them entry level gamers, but they're really more powerful than that since they can run most recent games at 1920 x 1080 in a mix of medium and high settings with good frame rates.

A powerful (and heavy) gaming laptop
Source: Slashgear English
As far as performance goes, the laptop is top notch and you'll find it handles your gameplay well. In fact, the laptop's downside doesn't come from its design or performance, but rather its hefty, bulky design. This is by no means a lightweight laptop and it is chunky. For gamers who play at the desk and rarely find reason to pick up their machine, this won't be an issue. If you enjoy portability, though, the Y700 might prove too cumbersome.

The Lenovo Y700 is a solid choice for gamers looking for a mobile rig that won't put their wallet in traction. The improved display and longer battery life make this system a much better option than last year's disappointing Y50 series. The $1,099 laptop offers a somewhat subdued but attractive chassis, with a powerful Core i7 processor and a midlevel Nvidia graphics card.

Model: The Y700 gaming laptop series continues the sophisticated and solid design, which is almost the same as its predecessor. The build quality has improved though with tougher edges and corners and larger speaker grills. In this version, it continues to keep the iconic red-tinted, island-style keyboard with a size of 34 x 10.2 cm. The key travel is soft and good with a nice bounce. Putting the design aside, this laptop is powered by Intel Core i7 Skylake processor, which will enhance battery life and performance. All in all, it is really promising apart from little disappointment on its mid-range Nvidia GTX 960M graphic card.

However, the frame rate should normally lie between 950M to 970M in real-world games so that it is believed to be decent for most of the games like The Phantom Pain or Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Besides, it features 16 GB of RAM and a number of display configurations, either FHD (1920 x 1080) or UHD (3840 x 1260) touch panel support. It also comes with two JBL speakers with a subwoofer and the optional Intel RealSense 3D camera technology, which certainly brings the thrill back to all gamers.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

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.  

6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

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

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.

76.3%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
