Lenovo's Y50 is even better with 4K

Laptops
[MUSIC] One of our favorite laptops gets upgraded with a 4K screen. I'm Dan Ackerman. This is the Lenovo Y50 4K edition. A couple of months ago, we reviewed the Lenovo Y50. That was a 15 inch gaming laptop, that had mid level, to decent components. Could do some, very nice gaming. But it was in a, a small, reasonably attractive case. The screen, however, was not our favorite part. A little bit washed out. Not the better, not one of the better disp- . Displays that we've seen was a regular 1920 by 1080 display. We have gotten however now, and upgraded version with an optional 4K display. That's a full 3840 by 2160 display. And besides just being a higher resolution, this version actually just plain just looks nicer than the regular 1080 feed display. it's, it's brighter, it's less washed out, it looks better from sort of off angles. And that's all the important things that you want in a multimedia laptop, especially a game playing one. Now if you want to drive games at that full 4K resolution, it's gonna be a little bit tough. Cause it's not have the super top end mobile graphics card. It's got an Nvidia 860M. They're actually up to the 900 series now although that's brand, brand new. You're probably not gonna see that in too many products until 2015. That said, this is fine for casual or mainstream gaming. We even knock some games all the way up to 4K by dialing down the detail settings a little bit and I think that's actually a a more fun resolution to. Play at, and I would trade the higher resolution for some lower texture and detail settings. But you can find that perfect balance for you, maybe even going back down to 1080 and cranking the detail settings further up. Still a fairly inexpensive laptop considering that it's an attractive touchscreen. 15 inch laptop with a graphics card and with a 4K screen. The original version was about $1,100 or $1,200. This 4K version gets your core I7 CPU, that NVIDIA 8 60M chip, and the 4K touch display all for $1,499. I'm Dan Ackerman, and that is the Lenovo Y50 4K Edition. [MUSIC]
