Gamers have yet another reason to rejoice this year as the arrival of the new Lenovo Y50 4K UHD gaming laptop has landed brining with it an impressive line-up of features and upgrades that should keep game players happy for a long time coming. But with its 15.6 inch screen running an imposing 3840 x 2160 resolution and its step up from its predecessors lesser 1080p display right up to a whopping 4K does the laptop really perform?
The new touch screen is packed and arguably a little overkill for a simple laptop but it really gives depth and a much needed boost in crispness and sharpness to its on-screen graphics and other visual multimedia. Unfortunately gamers should be aware that just because it comes with a 4K UHD screen does not necessarily mean that you’ll be able to play all your games at such a high resolution. This is mostly due to the fact that the laptop has actually been fitted with an Nvidia 860M, a very mid-level GPU. This means that the graphics processing unit itself will actually struggle to benefit most games which will likely mean you’ll have to lower the resolution anyway. But most gaming sites like that of ca.royalvegascasino.com or other online casinos will run very respectably on the device; meaning multi-player poker games and unlimited hands of blackjack can still be enjoyed from this sleek device.
Aside from the much improved touch screen this bulked up laptop also comes complete with a Core i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD. The keyboard features a deep red backlight which is coupled with its translucent red plastic keys which allows the attractive backlight to shine through the keys as opposed to peeking out from around the keys edges. Red is obviously this laptops main colour scheme which is apparent throughout its overall design. Along with the backlit red keyboard the colour is also splashed around other areas of its metallic body including on its various speaker grilles, the rim of the interior tray and the colour is also sported on the USB ports.
Aesthetically the laptop is a lot nicer and sleeker to look at, it’s a tad thicker than most but nothing that’s particularly back breaking from a portability perspective. The new Lenovo Y50 is perfect for high-end gaming pursuits and holds its own in a highly competitive market often dominated by the likes of Alienware and the Aorus X7. What makes this laptop even more special is its price tag and you can even now pick from a range of different configurations so you can easily find exactly what you’re looking for.
