Lenovo Goes Gaming! @ IFA 2015

September 3, 2015

Key highlight would be the Ideacentre Y900

The announcements at IFA gave little indication of the restructuring that’s been happening within Lenovo. They seem to be fully going out for focus areas, lean and mean team at hand.

One of the highlights of Lenovo’s pre-IFA briefing was definitely their focus on PC gaming with the Y Series.

Running on Windows 10 with up to the latest Intel Core i7 processor, they have dual full-size discrete graphics support, are overclock capable, and can be upgraded with ease via a tool-free design. The interiors are pretty excitingly done complete with internal cable routing and intimidating red LED lights.


Still on the Y Series line, they also announced the Ideapad Y700, which will run on i7 or AMD quad-core A10 variants, with AMD and NVIDIA discrete graphics options. Available in 14″, 15.6″ and 17.3″ models, the Y700 has a 1920 x 1080 IPS anti-glare display, optimized thermal cooling, optional Intel RealSense 3D camera and JBL stereo speakers with Dolby Home Theatre audio enhancement.
