I5, GTX 860M
The new Lenovo Y50 15.6″ gaming laptop is Lenovo’s new top gaming laptop. It comes with good specs for around $1000. In terms of gaming performance, it’s about the fastest you’ll get for $1000 for now.
Some models also sport a higher quality Intel 7260 WiFi card like the I5 model, which is much better than the lower end options available from Lenovo site. Speakers are very good for a laptop an easily surpass the competitors, like in the Lenovo Y510p model.
Keyboard is only so-so with low keys feedback and it’s one disadvantage of the Y50. Battery is around 4 hours tops browsing the web. Future bios or other updates might fix it.
The 1080p displays are not very good (though vary in quality) and certainly not IPSs. However, it’s easy to replace the display.
Finally, the ~$1000 gives a good package, very good gaming performance, good speakers, lower weight (only around 2.4kg is relatively low for such a laptop) and good looks. Price is good and you can’t really go wrong with it, if you are willing to replace the display. However, other options might suit your needs better and better ask before you purchase.
