Lenovo shrinks its gaming desktop down to the Y710 CubeIt's a small but powerful gaming cube with the latest Nvidia graphics.
[MUSIC] I'm always surprised that more people don't know about Lenovo's gaming PCs. For years the ThinkPad company's put out some decent but not flashing laptops and desktops at very reasonable prices. The latest [UNKNOWN] is a small form factor desktop. Lenovo calls it the Y710 Cube. It reminds me of smaller breadbox-style PCs like the Falcon Northwest FragBox. And the idea is that it's smaller than a full gaming desktop, So it can fit in the latest GPUs like the NVIDIA'S Geforce 1080. But it's got a big handle on top so you can lug it to gaming events or a friend's house or down into your man cave, wherever. Unlike some of the very squared off gaming cubes we've seen before, this guy isn't trying to hide discreetly behind your desk. It's got the big red lights and sharp angles of the big Lenovo gaming desktops. And since it runs current Gen desktop-level graphics, it should be able to handle virtual reality without a hitch. There's also one new feature, I haven't seen it actually, but it sounds very promising. You'll be able to get as an option an integrated Xbox wireless controller/receiver so you could [UNKNOWN] a game head without having to have Giant XBox wireless stick that it makes using a game controller on a PC such a hassle.
