LenovoY-SeriesGamingComputers2Lenovo's most affordable premium gaming laptops are from its favored Y-series, a group of laptops and desktops that are gaining the likes of PC gamers. The Lenovo Ideapad Y700 laptop has been upgraded since last year, now sporting the latest from Intel, Nvidia, and AMD for processing and graphics. The Y-series will also be featuring two Ideacenter desktop models, as well as gaming accessories to win the hearts of computer gamers everywhere.

Each laptop runs a 6th gen Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, comes with 16GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, and a 128GB SSD. As for graphics, the gaming laptops will use an Nvidia GTX 960M, and will run for about 4 hours on its 4 cell, 60 Wh battery (First Post).

There is an additional Y900 model, which ups the ante a little bit, offering more memory (64GB of DDR4 RAM) and graphics (Nvidia GTX 980 GPU) (An and Tech).


As a final part of Lenovo's Y700 series, accessories will be available for all 4 gaming system options. From the Surround Sound Headset, the Y Gaming Precision Mouse, to a microphone, and a mechanical keyboard, all items are available this month. These new efforts from Lenovo are an important part of the (slowly, but surely) growing population of portable PC gamers. Gaming customers simply need the right pricing, graphics, and power to lure them away from Lenovo's pricey competitors. Pricing is said to start at $949 for the Y700 laptop, and $999 for the Y-series desktops.
