IdeaPad Y500 Allows Some Customization

Want a performance gaming laptop?  The Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 laptop is worth your consideration.  Not just because it’s loaded with performance components, such as top of the line processors and video cards, but because you can upgrade select parts yourself.  That’s unheard of with laptops.  So if you’re a hard-core gaming enthusiast, you’ll love the flexibility this system offers.

Perhaps the single thing I liked most about the Y500 is its ability to upgrade components…to a certain degree. I’m no stranger to laptops, and while it is not a huge pain to flip it over, unscrew a bunch of panels, and switch parts around, it is more work than I would like to have to do. Also, with most other laptops I have used, the ability to add components is virtually nonexistent, since there is such a demand for space.

IdeaPad Y500 Gaming Laptop

Lenovo’s IdeaPad product line caters to mainstream consumer-grade computer users.  There are several laptop families within the IdeaPad brand that highlight specific computer usage.  The IdeaPad Y Series focuses on mobile entertainment.  Systems in this grouping are equipped with great multimedia components and features.  If you’re into gaming, the IdeaPad Y500 system is worth considering.  It’s got a large 15.6″ display and is spec’d out pretty nice too.

Performance-wise, this build of the Y500 is very good, though it can’t quite hold its own with the more intense gaming models. It received a score of 70 (out of 100) on our WorldBench 8 benchmark tests, which puts it well above most mainstream laptops, but still below behemoths like the $3785 Origin EON17-SLX (which scored 115 out of 100). Still, this is one of the better laptops we’ve tested, and its graphics performance is comparable to that of the EON17-SLX. In our Dirt Showdown graphics test, the Y500 managed 116.1 frames per second (fps), while the EON17-SLX managed 139.5 fps.

In other words: If you’re a gamer, this is a viable, and much more affordable, alternative to an Origin desktop replacement.
