Lenovo Ideapad Y900 Specs, Launch, Price and Details
Lenovo unveiled the Lenovo Ideapad Y900 gaming laptop at CES 2016. The Lenovo Ideapad Y900 is a mean machine powered by the Intel Skylake 6th Generation Core i7 processor and has the monster Nvidia GTX 980M.
The Intel Core i7 Processor and the Nvidia GTX 980 M are the top of the line products which you can have in a gaming laptop; it is a dream machine for playing GTA 5 or the Witcher 3 at ultra settings without having any worries about the frame rates.
The Lenovo Ideapad Y900 comes with a 17.3-inch screen much like the Alien-ware bulky laptops it is also not a thin device to carry around with you. The laptop weighs close to 4.5 Kg.
The laptop has a great design with an Aluminum build with cross-hatching back cover for the laptop with a bright red Y insignia making the looks even more sophisticated.
The Laptop has another crucial highlight – it has got an RGB mechanical Keyboard which offers excellent gaming experience with the customized lights. Mechanical Keyboards are expensive even for the desktops, but the soft rubberized touch keys are a treat for your fingers and are an absolute necessity if you want to game all night.
The RGB (Red Green Blue) lighting is customizable, and you can set to have different lighting themes as per your mood and requirement. Mechanical Keyboards are too good, once you use one you simply can’t go back to using a non-mechanical one. I use a Corsair Blue Cherry Mechanical keyboard with my Gaming PC.
The Lenovo Ideapad Y900 comes with 1920*1080 IPS LCD display with anti-glare coating. The display is very crisp, and you would love Graphics intensive games on the screen with utmost clarity.
The laptop will come with different memory configurations with an option of 256 GB SSD and 1 TB HD in a raid and will also support maximum 64 GB of RAM.
The Lenovo Ideapad Y900 comes with a JBL sub-woofer to improve the sound quality in case you are not using the headphones.
The Laptop comes with an option to overclock both the CPU and GPU with a special Turbo Mode button if you are planning to push this ultimate machine to its limits. There is a Lenovo Nerve Center software utility which allows more manual control over the OC for the laptop.
The battery life as reported by Lenovo is more than 5 hours for the device, but we will have to see the real-life gaming battery life to conclude how long it can run on battery.
The Laptop will be available in India soon, and as per recent reports, Lenovo will be launching it on 8th Feb 2016 in the Indian market. Pricing is going to be steep; the laptop costs USD 2000 in the US market we can expect close to 1.5 Lakh price tag for the Gaming Beast.
