Comment

Model: The powerful and portable Lenovo Y40-80 is a solid performing laptop for users wanting the best of both worlds. Without burning a hole through your pocket, this gaming laptop comes packed with features and looks good. Design is classic with strong edges and clean lines. The entire device is finished in dark-metal and sports a keyboard with red backlight. The anti-glare 14 inch display features FHD resolution and produces good color saturation and clarity. This is a must for any gaming device.

The Windows 8.1 system comes with an Intel Core i7-5500U processor clocked at 2.4 GHz, up to 16 GB of DDR3L RAM, an AMD Radeon R9 M275 GPU with 2 or 4 GB of VRAM and various storage options from a 1 TB HDD to 256 GB SSD. Audio quality is impressive. Despite the Y40-80's small size, its JBL speakers deliver a solid sound. The Lenovo Y40-80 comes with a 1 MP webcam, two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, a card reader, an HDMI out and a dual array microphone. At just 2.2 kg, users can definitely game on the go especially since the supplied 4-cell Lithium-Ion Polymer battery lasts up to 5 hours.

AMD Radeon R9 M375: GCN based mid-range graphics card with DirectX 12 support and a 128-bit DDR3 memory controller. Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  
5500U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
14":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

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.
