Lenovo IdeaPad Y50-70 is designed for gaming and multimedia, which has a unique design, such as spacecraft, so that people can menyukain model
Laptop weighs 2.4 kg - no more and no less, than most 15.6-inch laptops on the market. Nothing stands out and shell thickness 24 mm, except, of course, does not compare with the thick notebook (thanks compartment Ultra-bay) IdeaPad Y500 (39 mm)
Y50 Use Intel Wireless-AC adapter 3160, which provides Wi-Fi dual-band 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac and Bluetooth 4.0 (and Wireless Display support). Of enhanced Wireless-AC 7260 is different 1x1 configuration - that is, the impossibility of simultaneous operation in both bands. Connections will be made on either the 2.4 or 5 GHz, but not both at the same frequency. Therefore, the maximum rate data is limited 802.11ac network 433 Mbit / s (Wireless-AC 7260: 2x2, 867 Mbit / s). Nevertheless, this is a very high quality wireless modules proved himself worthy in our tests. In another configuration we tested Y50 (with UHD-TV) mounted single-band Atheros AR9565 802.11n module, which is under the same conditions (15 m from the router, 4 wall or ceiling 2) ordinary "dropping" the complex and reduce speed to a low value interrupt - adapter from Intel to work without interruption. Carefully check the configuration of the purchase.
WWAN modem or GPS is not - in a gaming laptop to do nothing special, it is the prerogative of the company and professional applications.
Screen resolution is 1920 by 1080 pixels - the standard for value 15.6-inch laptop. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has chosen TN-matrix with performance rather mediocre. The black levels are too high (0.722 cd / m²), the contrast is too low (315: 1) - the game, which takes place in a dark environment (for example, Batman: Arkham City), looks so-so, not the darkness of the coal-black on a dark screen fog gray.
Although i7-4700HQ is one of the most powerful Intel processors for notebooks today, in Y50-70 the performance is much worse than expected. The reason for this is almost involved Turbo frequency: they are used by only a few seconds after the onset of severe stress, after the frequency drops to 2.4 GHz core. Well, at least that there is no sense to choose ... throttling configuration i7-4710HQ not at all, the only difference between this CPU - an increase of 100 MHz core and a maximum Turbo frequency. We tested Y50-70 other models with UHD screen i7-4710HQ and fears were confirmed - the frequency and then fall below the baseline (in i7-4710HQ it is 100 MHz above 2.5 GHz), but still not the Turbo-mode is used.
Other configurations can be selected Core i5-4200H - for half the number of cores (2) performance is somewhat lower, especially in threaded tasks. True, i5-4200H almost catches up with both Core i7 in a single-threaded tasks thanks to Turbo-high frequency
