Lenovo Y700 Overview

  • 1Description

The 17.3" IdeaPad Y700 Laptop from Lenovo has been designed as a weapon of choice for gamers who are on the go. It is powered by a 6th Generation 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core processor that will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the CPU can be overclocked to 3.5 GHz and the 8GB of DDR4 RAM allows the system to quickly access frequently-used files and data, as well as helping to ensure smooth multitasking.

The 17.3" anti-glare display on the Y700 features IPS (In-Plane Switching) technology, a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution, and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The dedicated NVIDIA GeForce 960M graphics card has 4GB of dedicated GDDR5 video memory and delivers a sharp, clear picture. You'll also be able to output video to an external display using the built-in HDMI port.

For long term storage of your files, a 256GB SSD provides quick access to your data. While this SSD may not have the larger capacity of a traditional hard drive, SSDs have no moving parts and are able to operate with faster data transfer speeds. Having no moving parts also enables the drive to receive less wear and tear, as there are no read and write heads for the drive media to come into contact with.

If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, this notebook is equipped with 2 x USB 3.0 ports and 1 x USB 2.0 port. 802.11ac Wi-Fi is also built-in for wireless networking and Bluetooth 4.0 technology will allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. Other features include a 4-in-1 SD & MMC media card reader, a Gigabit Ethernet jack, a 720p webcam, a red LED-backlit keyboard with 2 level brightness control, dual digital array microphones, dual 2W JBL stereo speakers with Dolby Home Theater and Chamber+, as well as a 3W subwoofer.

Included with the IdeaPad Y700 is an AC adapter and a 5-cell / 60Wh battery that lasts for up to 5 hours before recharging is required. The installed operating system is Windows 10 (64-bit).

Windows 10 Home (64-Bit)

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With it, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift

    Lenovo Y700 Reviews

    17.3" IdeaPad Y700 Laptop is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from IGNORE THE BAD REVIEWS! This laptop is a beast! Nowhere else can you get a quad core i7, 17 IPS HD laptop with a 4GB dedicated graphics card of good quality, SSD and KILLER sound for well under $1k. This machine screams with speed. Only dropping 1 star because there is no USB-C port and battery life is less than stellar but by no means should that steer you away from this STEAL of a laptop. If you purchase the additional HDD tray and Cable, a 2nd SSD is added for additional storage for very low cost. I now have over 1TB of SSD storage on this laptop with the 2 SSD drives and still paid under $1k for it. I am VERY happy with the performance of this machine. Other comparable machines are $400-500 more than this one. Buy with confidence!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DONT buy this computer I bought this. 1 week later, it shut down and didn't turn on. I got a new one from B n H, now 3 months later, the display is not working. I don't know what is wrong with this model but I regret so much buying it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Purchase I purchased the Ideapad Y700 laptop through Lenovo at the beginning of this month for my daughters 18th birthday at the end of this month. It arrived on 11/20. Upon opening it and beginning the process of setting it up I opened the Nvidia Geforce panel in the right corner and saw that there was a driver update. I clicked update and it immediately gave my an error saying Nvidia could not be found. So I got on the phone with tech support who at first refused to help me because they said I was having a software issue after frantically explaining to them that I had just received this laptop today they agreed to take remote control of the machine. After several minutes the technician told me that my graphics card was not fitted properly in and that this was actually a hardware issue and I would need to send back the laptopWTF! WHAT?!?!...so here I am with a brand new laptop with hardware issues already boxed and sitting on my kitchen floor to go back. I'm left with nothing to give my daughter for her 18th birthday. I truly believe when a company shows you who they really are through poor quality products that you should listen. I'll be sending this back for refund and investing my money and time elsewhere. The time that I spent on Lenovo should have gone towards giving my daughter the best 18th I could.that I won't be able to get back. I suggest you do your research before purchasing Lenovo, start with consumer complaints there are a lot of them!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trash Piece of junk's Motherboard died after under a year of desktop use; the screen would flicker off when adjusting the screen position and would have to be closed and open each time to reset connection. Avoid like the plague.
