The Lenovo 15.6" Ideapad 500 Notebook features an integrated Intel RealSense 3D camera that comes with depth perception technology so you can capture objects in 3D and control this Windows 10 system with gestures. To provide everyday performance, it has a dual-core 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6500U processor and 8GB of RAM. The 15.6" display delivers a 1920 x 1080 resolution, which is driven by a dedicated AMD Radeon R7 M360 graphics card, so you can view the details in movies and photos. For storage, a 1TB hard drive provides ample space for holding your files. You can transfer digital content to this drive with its three USB ports or 4-in-1 card reader. Other features included along with this notebook are a microphone and two speakers as well as 802.11ac Wi-Fi for accessing the Internet wirelessly.

Dual-Core 6th-Gen Skylake Intel Core Performance
The Ideapad 500 houses a 6th-generation Skylake Intel Core i7-6500U processor. Its dual cores can reach a stock speed of 2.5 GHz. The processor can also achieve speeds of up to 3.1 GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a dedicated 4MB L3 cache, 8GB of DDR3L RAM, and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, you'll be able to push the dual cores up to four virtual cores for quick and efficient multitasking.
Intel RealSense 3D Camera
The front-facing Intel RealSense 3D camera features depth perception technology so you may use it to scan objects to create 3D digital models, which can be printed using a 3D printer. Furthermore, this technology can track movement better than a standard webcam to control your PC with gestures or create a more lifelike video chat.
AMD Radeon R7 M360 HD Graphics
The AMD Radeon R7 M360 HD graphics card renders 3D textures so you can play games with smooth frame rates. This dedicated GPU can also be use to edit photos and home movies.

Windows 10 Home

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 Notebook, 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.
