Lenovo 59443796 Overview

  • 1Description

The Y50 59443796 15.6" Notebook Computer from Lenovo features an Ultra HD 4K display. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 3840 x 2160 native resolution, which can play back 4K content without upscaling or letterboxing. The visuals are handled by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics card with 4GB of discrete memory. If you require a larger display, you can output video via the HDMI port.

The system is powered by a quad-core 4th generation Haswell 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor. It also has 16GB of DDR3L RAM, 256GB SSD, an external USB SuperMulti DVD burner, a 4-in-1 media card reader, 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) support, an integrated webcam, and a microphone. There are also built-in JBL speakers with Dolby Advanced Audio v2 technology.

Windows 8.1 is the installed operating system. Windows 8.1 improves the user experience of Windows 8 with several additions and changes. The Start button returns, but has two limited core functions. A left click takes you to the redesigned Start screen featuring tiles that update in real-time. A right click brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control Panel and more. You will also be able to boot directly to the traditional desktop screen instead of the Windows 8.1 Start screen. Windows 8.1 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.

Lenovo Y50

Quad-Core 4th-Gen Haswell Intel Core i7 Performance
The Lenovo Y50 houses a 4th generation Haswell Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor. Its quad cores have a stock speed of 2.6 GHz. The processor can also be overclocked up to 3.6 GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a dedicated 6MB L3 cache, 16GB of DDR3L RAM, and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, you'll be able to push the quad cores into eight virtual cores for efficient multitasking.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M Graphics
Built for a high definition gaming experience, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M arms you with advanced technologies including DirectX support, dynamic PhysX effects, CUDA, and more. Based on NVIDIA's Maxwell GPU architecture, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M provides optimal performance per watt. The SMX streaming multiprocessor is as efficient as the prior generation and the geometry engine draws triangles faster. The result is reliable performance, power efficiency, and high image quality.
15.6" Ultra HD 4K IPS Display
The 15.6" IPS display features a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 3840 x 2160 native resolution, which can play back 4K content without upscaling or letterboxing. You can also output video to an external display via the HDMI port.
Intel 802.11ac Wi-Fi
Featuring Intel dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, the Lenovo Y50 delivers high performance, broader coverage, and longer battery life. The Lenovo Y50 also comes with Bluetooth 4.0 technology so you'll be able to connect wirelessly to Bluetooth-compatible peripherals and accessories.

Windows 8.1

The Return of the Start Button

While it may not be exactly the same as its predecessor in Windows 7, the Start button has two core functions. A left click on the Start button will take you to the Windows 8.1 Start screen featuring live tiles. A right click on the Start button brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control Panel, Network options, and more.
Boot Directly to the Desktop
Windows 8.1 gives you the choice of booting to the Windows 8.1 Start screen with live tiles or booting to the familiar desktop screen of Windows 7. Users can also boot directly into an app or app view if they choose to.
To the Cloud
With Windows 8.1, when signed in using your Microsoft account, you'll have instant access to your personal Start screen, themes, language preferences, browsing history, and browser favorites. You can also connect to services such as Microsoft Outlook, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, and more.
