Hands-on with the Lenovo Y70 Touch
I'm Dan Ackerman here, taking a look at a bigger version of one of everybody's favorite laptops these days, I'm talking about the Lenovo Y50, that's a 15 inch gaming laptop, very smart looking.
This is the Y70 and it has all the features we like about the Y50 in that it is a gaming oriented laptop, you can get current gen in video graphics with it.
Plus a 1080p screen that is a touch screen, I don't think I've seen a full 17 inch gaming laptop with Nvidia graphics and a touch screen before.
And of course, you know, regular 1080p resolution, it's still got the, backlit red keyboard that we liked from the Y50 a lot.
It doesn't do multiple colors like some other gaming laptops.
But I like that the light comes up through the actual key shafts themselves, and it's actually kind of a cool striking look without being, you know, too dorm roomish.
You know, sound, even on big laptops never really that awesome.
At least you've got a sub-woofer here so that should help out a bit.
And, of course, the regular speakers here that carry over kind of that red theme.
And if you look at the back, it looks kinda like a big version of the Y50.
So you have kind of the brushed metal look.
A little bit angular.
But not quite that Alienware level of kind of, like, you know, a preteen, flashy laptop.
That's no alien heads here.
But this guy should have the latest gen in video graphics.
It's going to be out later this year starting at $1299.
I'm Dan Aykman That's the Lenovo Y70.
