Lenovo Y50 Touch 4K review
Published On 11-November-2014
The Lenovo Y50 Touch aims to create a stand in the gaming as well as in desktop replacement market along with its 15.6 inches Ultra HD model. It contains 16GB of RAM and a 256GB solid state drive that might create a fast combination.
The design of the Lenovo Y50 is very edgy and also of precisely looks similar to the gaming laptop. The lid contains a brushed aluminum panels accompanied by a criss-cross pattern rather than the usual horizontal brushed appearance. Whereas it is a desktop replacement and its weight is only 5.29 pounds, which is really not the heavyweight out there. This device is also comparatively thin having thinness of almost 0.94 inches.
Inside the laptop there is the island-style keyboard which is both glossy as well as black to give it a slim appearance. The keyboard feels very nice because it is quite commodious. It is also backlit with bright red lighting accompanied by the numeric keypad. The backlighting is unique because the keys are really of luminous plastic, and hence the light shines via keys and not only around them.
The touchpad is a clickpad and without buttons and is slightly counterweight to the left to align along with the spacebar. We originate the touchpad to work quite well and the click to it was also very strong. One of the strongest selling points of the laptop is the 4K Ultra High Definition touchscreen 15.6 inches display. A 4K Ultra High Definition display (having 3840 x 2160-pixels) contains four times the pixels of the present High Definition 1080p resolution displays. When you utilize the notebook as well as searching for the 4K resolution images, you will be definitely got surprised. Text also appears too much sharp. When you do view non 4K content, particularly the snaps or the video below 1080p High Definition, you can actually tell as they look a little blurry. However after some time, you do get familiarized to it.
The touchscreen feature of the display worked exceptionally, however as this is not a convertible tablet design, you perhaps would not utilize the touchscreen that often. Our review unit contains a configuration that might comprises of a 4th generation Intel Core i7-4700HQ (2.4GHz) CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB solid state drive and Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M graphics along with 2GB of dedicated video memory. The dive also contains the integrated 802.11ac wireless and Bluetooth. There are three USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB 3.0 port, and HDMI-out as well as multi-card reader.
The 4K display screen appears much better as compared to its predecessor 1080p boring, however the mid-level GPU means that you do not really play a large number of games 4K resolution. One of our favorite gaming laptops attains a strident 4K display, which is all sorts of content appears marvelous, however it is our little of a tease, as you cannot actually crank most games up to this resolution. The present object game action, the 15.6 inches touch Y50, an affordable laptop that does not appear so much terrible gamer-like, as well as syndicates a touchscreen with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M mainstream graphics card, that’s why it does not work well for gaming and for performing other tasks. Battery life is quite decent for such a powerful gadget. It gives the battery life of almost 3.75 hours a day.
