The 15.6" Ideapad Y700 Series Notebook from Lenovo is built for users who need a portable notebook for working and gaming. Powered by a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core processor and 12GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, this system will let you efficiently multitask as well as quickly access frequently used files and programs. When you need more processing power, the CPU's core clock can reach up to 3.5 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology.

Its 15.6" anti-glare display has a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and is built with an In-Plane-Switching (IPS) panel that offers wide viewing angles and vivid colors. Furthermore, it's driven by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics card with 4GB of GDDR5, which will give you the power to enable additional graphical options and turn up in-game visual settings so you can experience games at their best.

For storage, this system is equipped with a 128GB PCIe-based SSD and a 1TB 5400 rpm hard drive. SSDs are created without any moving parts and can thus endure more and perform faster than a traditional hard drive. On the other hand, the large capacity of the hard drive makes it suitable for long term storage of your music, videos, files, and more. Additionally, you can use its USB 3.0, USB 2.0 and media card reader to attach external storage options as well as transfer data from your mobile devices.

Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi or the Gigabit Ethernet port for a more reliable and stable wired connection. Other integrated features include a 3.5mm microphone and headphone combo jack, speakers, microphones, a webcam, and a HDMI port so you can connect another monitor. The Y700 also comes with an external DVDRW drive so you can read and write optical media. The pre-installed operating system is Windows 10 Home.

Immersive Audio
This system features JBL speakers with Dolby Home Theater audio and Intel Realsense for an enhanced and immersive listening experience.
2 x USB 3.0 Ports & 1 x USB 2.0 Port
The Y700 notebook features two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 port that will allow you to connect external peripherals such as hard drives, printers, memory card readers, and more.
4-in-1 SD & MMC Media Card Reader
The 4-in-1 media card reader supports SD, SDHC, SDXC, and MMC cards so you can transfer files from your mobile devices.
802.11ac Wi-Fi & Bluetooth 4.0
Built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi lets you connect to wireless networks while Bluetooth 4.0 enables you to pair wireless devices and free up USB ports.
Backlit Keyboard
With two levels of brightness control, the backlit keyboard lets you game, surf, and chat long into the night - even with the lights out.

Windows 10

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 Microsoft Edge, 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.
