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 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 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.

What's the difference between this laptop and the one sold on Amazon? Other answers said it's built for each store.
Asked by: Carrie
This is a special version, which is difficult to compare with "official" Lenovo makes. It is based on Y500 series with most feature from Y700 series, which gives it better price/value. For me lack of colorful lighting is a plus, for others it is not.

That will depend on the requirements and compatibility od the specific software. We recommend you check with the specific software publisher's web site for their compatibility with Windows 10 Home 64-bit operating system and the minimum/recommended hardware requirements (Is a Graphics card required, the processor speed and the minimum required system RAM and the minimum available hard drive space) to run their program, then compare those requirements to this system's configuration.

It is probably average for the specs on this laptop. I can get a max of about 3 hrs. just surfing the web, emails, some YouTube, etc. Some light duty gaming gets me a max of 2 hrs. Otherwise it is a great laptop with good performance!

Are you talking of Video? The laptop is very fast. Its only limitation could be RAM. I don't think you can add anymore. I use this for video editing. I also added a second internal hard drive - SSD.

Can we add 4tb hdd inside it and how

Can we add 4tb hdd inside it and how
Asked by: Tej
I installed a 2TB 2.5" 7mm (thickness) SSD in mine. I'm not sure the max thickness the laptop can take, but if you can find a 7mm 4TB, it should work. You'll have to take your chances for something thicker. Go to youtube, and search for "Y7000 teardown" for installation video ... I did. I picked up a "iFixit Essential Electronics Toolkit" to open the laptop. Good luck.
