Lenovo unveiled the high power IdeaPad Y700-17IS laptop at the Lenovo India Gaming Week in Mumbai for the Indian market. Some of the basic features of this laptop include a quad-core Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor, 1TB 5400rpm hard drive, 128GB solid state drive, 16GB of DDR4 RAM and 17-inch full HD display.
Power packed performance
For an enhanced gaming experience, the laptop comes with an Nvidia GTX 960M video card and 4GB GDDR5 video RAM. This is one of the first laptops to operate on the all-new Windows 10. To justify the hefty price of Rs. 1,25,000, the company claims they want to focus on eSports activities with this laptop. However, the fact that they did a demo with basic games like Counter Strike and Dota 2 does not speak sufficiently about the capabilities of this game.
Average gaming device at a high price
Introducing a high-end laptop that doesn’t seem to have enough features will be a challenge for the company. However, National Product Manager for Consumer Notebooks at Lenovo Hiral Somaiya believes a device like this would improve the overall gaming experience of users and make them familiar with serious gaming.
