During this year’s IFA event in Berlin, Germany, Chinese company Lenovo decided to lead a full-blown attack on its competition and launch a numerous army of products that would supposedly overwhelm the other brands present. Lenovo
’s attack is not based only on numbers, but also on impressive features and innovation, and a good example of such features would be the new Y series gaming notebooks.
There are two models available; the first is the 14” Y400 with a 1366 by 768 screen and the second is the Y500 with a decent FullHD display.
Powered by Intel’s Core i7 Ivy Bridge, both notebooks
are able to use 16 GB of RAM and support 1TB HDDs.
The most interesting part is the UltraBay that allows the user to swap out the ODD for dual graphics capability, increased storage space, or an additional fan for cooling.
For the time being, we don’t know exactly whether this feature is present on both models, but we can tell you for sure that the 14” one has it.
The Y500 comes with an Nvidia
GeForce 650M or a 655M graphics adapter for some decent gaming and availability is slated for next month, with prices starting at $650 (€516).
