The latest versions of the Chinese Y family include upgraded design and quad-core processors from the Skylake section
One of the series of laptops designed for gaming that can be found in a variety of stores in Israel is a series The IdeaPad Y50 של Lenovo, Which knows how to provide decent hardware capabilities at relatively sane prices of 5,000 NIS or more. Now, this series becomes the IdeaPad Y700 series, and claims to be even more advanced.
The most significant change in the new generation is in the design, which looks much more aggressive and unique now thanks to the combination of matte plastic and dark brushed aluminum and touches of prominent red color - we really liked the trapezoidal connection between the screen and the computer body and body (hopefully it is durable and tough enough The screen is accidentally misplaced).
Under the updated shell you will find quad-core processors in a thermal envelope of 45 watts from the new Skylake section, though without mentioning the Core i7-6820HK model with the currently open product, DDR4 In volumes up to 16GB, storage based SSD Up to 512GB or volume storage Mechanical hybrid of up to 1TB, pair speakers 2-powered stereo each with a 3 watts subwoofer that comes with JBL, connectivity Wi-Fi The 802.11ac standard with a pair of channels on transmission and reception and 4 batteries has cells with a total capacity of 60-watts.
Like now, the Y700 series can be either 15 or Y700-15, with full-resolution IPS screen or IPS screen resolution 4k And the option of touch support in any one, or 17 inches in size as a Y700-17 with screen IPS Only FullHD resolution and no touch.
Beyond the rather modest capacity, Lenovo chose to base all models on a GeForce GTX 960M video card NVIDIA, In a version that includes an 4GB of GDDR5 memory, or a card Radeon R9 M375 which also has GDDR5 memory of 4GB - which should deal well with gaming with resolutions of up to FullHD, but will not be enough for the Ultra HD resolution offered in the 15-inch models. Hopefully we'll see you later Lenovo Introduces additional models, possibly with models graphic cards More powerful or alternatively with double the transfer of cards from the models written above.
All Y700 models will offer a pair of USB 3.0 connections, an additional USB 2.0 connection for charging even in sleep mode, a full-size HDMI connection, a slot for SD cards and a wired Ethernet connection, while the 15-inch models also have a RealSense camera with a depth sensor of Intel, For authentication support based on face recognition and a host of other advanced control technologies.
With a stated starting price of $ 950, the Y700 models probably knew how to continue the nice momentum of their predecessors - and as long as there are not too many competitors around who are willing to provide more competitive prices, we are definitely in favor.
