Customer Reviews for IdeaPad Y50 Touch
Review 1 for IdeaPad Y50 Touch
Gaming feature to consider
Date:July 31, 2014
"Looking for a gaming machine and love the touch screen technology too. (Dad just got a Yoga 2 - very nice screen). That brought me to the Y50 Touch. Lenovo should consider an optional model that has a straight SSD drive, with more options for upgraded Video Cards, like you have on the Y50 and Y50 Ultra. Adding the GTX 880M as an option with an SSD drive would attract many more gamers. I'd be buying one TODAY! Now, I am looking at other options instead. :( I still want to buy Lenovo, but have to purchase something soon for schooltime and cannot wait for other models to surface... Plenty of college students game too, and only get one machine to buy... "529 funds" can pay for those machines, so why not get one capable of gaming while giving the touchscreen too. The ultimate would be having all the above on a Y50 Ultra HD (3840x2160). AT LEAST add a straight SSD option."
"Let me just say that on paper, this is the best gaming laptop for the money that you are going to find out there. Period. When you count the touchscreen, the gap is even greater. Unfortunately in practice...
The screen quality is the worst I have ever played with. The viewing angles are so bad that literally can't move at all without altering the picture. Even in the sweet spot, the colors are incredibly washed out at best. I can't believe a company would sell a rig that is supposedly a gaming/multimedia system that includes a screen like this.
Out of the box, the experience is a lot more sluggish(worse than my 3 yr old rig) during regular usage than is acceptable for these stats. I suspect a fresh install of windows to remove all the bloat would take care of that, but I didn't bother trying as I ended up sending it back.
Gaming was indeed powerful as you would expect, but again there were driver issues etc out of the box that were frustrating to deal with on a new rig."

"I had a feeling half these reviews were written by non-owners. Do everyone a favor and don't review a product [and rate it 1-star] just because you don't like the specs compared to a last-gen product. Speak with your dollar instead -- don't buy it. You're screwing up the ratings due to your "expert" opinions. Go ahead and apply for a job for a writer at Maximum PC magazine instead."
"This is such a great computer. I was looking for a laptop with a hd touchscreen, a dedicated graphics card strong enough to play games at higher settings, and a decent processor, for less than $2000.00. It also had to be backed by a dependable company. This laptop ticked all those boxes plus more. I looked for a week trying to find a setup like this. The problem I kept running into with laptops in this price range was, If the laptop had a great display, it only had a sad little Intel 4400 integrated graphics. If it had dedicated graphics, it had a sad display. I really got frustrated until I found this jewel through Lenovo. I know there are a few gaming powerhouse laptops out there, but most of them are a lot more than $1400, or they did not have a touch screen. I do not think you can find a better deal at the moment. I was so happy with this laptop and with the company I purchased a second laptop for my daughter. I am very happy with my purchase."
"The Lenovo Y50 is a fantastic upgrade from the previous Y510p and Y500 by slimming down the design, but also adding better performance to compete with other multimedia gaming notebooks.
The build quality has improved over the Y510p and now features a slimmer and sleeker design making it more portable than ever. I love the matte soft touch finish on the keyboard. The screen is a TN panel with a better response time than IPS screens, but sacrifices color vibrancy and saturation.
The GPU is fantastic and perfect for a laptop of this size and caliber. 2GB of GTX860m mows through all triple AAA game titles. I get 60FPS on high settings for Battlefield 4 and on Titanfall. The laptop also barely gets hot so during long gaming sessions, you'll notice the heat is all concentrated in the rear away from the trackad and wrist area.
Overall I love the purchase I've made. I was deciding between the P34V2, Lenovo Y50, Asus N55jk, and the Asus G550jk. I went with the Y50 for its GPU and size."
