Lenovo Y50 Touch

Lenovo Y50 Touch description

Lenovo Y50 Touch has upgraded the processor and storage, which translates into a small bump in performance. All of this is nice, but like its Y Series brethren, the Y50-70 is plagued with a bulky frame and short battery life, keeping it from being realistically portable.


The Y50-70 Touch has the same black aluminum chassis as the regular Y50. I'm still a fan of the understated black lid with its delicate crosshatching and the black diamond-cut Lenovo logo.

It's a great choice for gamers looking to avoid the Close Encounters of the Third Kind light show that's typically associated with gaming notebooks. Weighing 5.6 pounds and measuring 15.23 x 0.37 x 0.9 inches, the Y50-70 Touch is on the heavier side of the spectrum 



The Lenovo Y50-Touch is outfitted with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M GPU with 2GB of VRAM.

It's not the most powerful dog in the fight, but it can definitely hold its own. 

When I took a break from beating back hordes of the undead, the notebook switched over to its Intel HD Graphics 4600 card for less resource

The boldest design feature is the deep red backlit keyboard, easily the visual highlight of the system. Many other gaming laptops offer backlit keyboards, usually in a rainbow of user-adjustable colors, but this version is built around that single red color.



The effect is heightened because the side shafts of the island-style keys are made of translucent red plastic, and the light shines through the actual key bodies, rather than simply leaking from around the key cutouts, as in other backlit laptops.

The keyboard itself is fine, not as custom-made for gamers as, for example, an Alienware keyboard, but I appreciated the large Shift, Tab and Control keys -- all frequently used in PC games.

As most PC gaming is done via external mouse, you may not spend a lot of time with the touchpad. It's a buttonless, clickpad-style one, and offset to the left in order to line up under the spacebar

In the original Y50 Touch laptop we reviewed, the 1,920x1,080 touch-enabled screen was a sticking point. It lacked the crisp sharpness we look for in a high-end display, and had especially poor off-axis viewing, causing the image to degrade quickly as your head moved.
