For gamers, it is difficult to find a laptop that not only offers top performance but also manages to keep the user's budget in check. Even more difficult is to ensure that such a laptop is suitable for non-gaming purposes as well. Lenovo Ideapad Y50 UHD is one such gem. Lenovo has recently developed quite a niche when it comes to affordable gaming laptops but Lenovo Ideapad Y50 UHD is in a league of its own. The best thing about this laptop is that it has normal looks – it isn't bulky like people expect gaming laptops to be.
Best Features of Lenovo Ideapad Y50 UHD:
Display – The laptop does not disappoint when it comes to its display. The colors are bright and rich and replacing the non-touch version with the touch one has been a great success for Lenovo. All the original display problems have been fixed in Y50 UHD. With a 15.6″ screen and a resolution of 3840×2160, Y50 flies high.
Design – Even professional gaming laptop makers cannot compete with Y50 when it comes to design. It is sleek but not the thinnest or lightest. However, most gaming laptops fall in the 18″ or more category while Y50 is 15.6″, and compact in that respect. The keyboard and the flash of red here and there are both quite appealing design aspects.
Audio – No one can go wrong with JBL speakers and Lenovo proves this with Y50 that has a crisp, sharp and balanced audio performance. Music lovers would love how silky and balanced the bass comes out on the Y50. Dolby Digital Plus comes with the laptop and offers additional features.
Keyboard – Both the touchpad and keyboard are designing successes. The keyboard has red backlighting that makes it perfect to watch movies, work or even play games in the dark. The buttons are comfortable and an improvement over the previous laptops in the Y series.
Battery Life – The battery drain is quite fast on the Y50 but with a laptop packed with so many amazing features, this is to be expected. On video playback, it comes up with a score of 4:10 and if a game is played, the user can expect the laptop to last for about 90 minutes. This means that the power cord would have to be carried with the laptop on road trips.
Other amazing features of the Lenovo Ideapad Y50 UHD include its great gaming performance and ease of use.
