Just having a nose around the Lenovo site and saw the Idea pad y910 had dropped again, to what it was over Black Friday. Showing at £1799.99 on searching, but if you click through, it's back to £1299.99.

Decent specs and a good sized FHD IPS screen, which is a total bonus (Love IPS)

Its a great gpu but I suspect you will get tearing at high fps. Great specs shame G-SYNC isnt available its standard thing on most gaming notebooks now.



According to their website here:www3.lenovo.com/gb/…764 It does.

I got one for £1,099 through a scheme at work but havn't gamed on it yet.

It is blisteringly fast. It is also heavy. The screen lid is cast aluminium and there is some in the base too. The screen is really bright.
The charger is huge - about twice the size of a normal charger. The back lights for the keys change colour.

The keyboard has a slightly odd layout and a small return / enter key. The DVD drive is a separate USB drive.

Fantastic build quality overall and is better then any other brand that I have seen. this is not a "cut price machine"!

Yeah but then you have to threaten court, possibly go thru with it etc etc at least a proper warranty is 100% guaranteed repair relatively easily.

Most manufacturers offer cheap extended warranties. For example Acer do a 3 year warranty for £40

I've never had to get that far but i am sure some companies are more difficult than others.
Aren't the specs a bit redundant though for a 1080p screen? Should have at least a 1440p screen I'd have thought

And we need to know this because?

have had no problems. I would consider the same computer when I need another.
I have been reading about cpu temperatures causing thermal throttling even with undervolting...
can anyone shed any light of their cpu temperatures?
Thanks.
Hmm, have looked at the settings and can't find a G-Sync setting, though the web page above says it has it!

Still very happy with it!
I have to admit it is a great price for a thumping gaming laptop, but I have to question why a 1 year warranty?

For a top of the range type laptop I expect a top of the range type warranty. Seriously, 1 year and you have to take it to a store yourself or pay for deliver? It makes me wonder whether Lenovo know something that they aren't willing to tell.

Not very different to Dell who offer 1 year on site for their more expensive Alienware laptops and significantly more for extensions. I have just looked at the Dell site and 3 years onsite for the Alienware 17 is £458.80!!!!!!! and accidental damage is another £103!!!! If you want a 4 year warranty - sit down - it is £618.80. This is on top of a laptop that costs £1949.01 comes with 8gb ram and a 128gb SSD and only 2 DIMMs (the Y910 has 4). The Dell processor is marginally faster and it has G-Sync but otherwise its very similar!

The MPN for the product is 80V1000BUK and several stockists of this product specify that it is G-Sync capable. Can anyone confirm from the previous sale if G-Sync is supported?
Guess if the screen is not gsync then could just hook it up to a gsync enabled monitor? Defeats the point I know of portability, but is kind of a desktop replacement of sorts I suppose. Great specs though!

The screen doesnt support G-Sync but the hardware i.e the GPU does support G-Sync I read on the official lenovo forum regarding the AIO Y910 didnt support G-Sync screen. But I can now firmly confirm it doesnt have a G-Sync capable screen.

laptopmedia.com/hig…ct/


Have read it clearly says it doesnt support G-Sync Screen. Its great Laptop but but I really dont want to spend another couple hundred quid for G-Sync screen.
Trust pilot don't like em. Nearly jumped at this. Second thoughts now.

just editing. No laptop manufacturers fair well by the look of it.

Not for VR
I find it funny those asking if the laptop is for VR and gaming etc....

A laptop isn't designed for gaming.... It's too compact and doesn't have the adequate cooling as such massive heatsink.

I learned that the hard way with a HP laptop played it 24/7 must of left it on for a year constantly turned off never turned back on had a look inside bubbles on the GPU.

You're a bit behind the times I'm afraid. The 10 series gpus are almost identical to the desktop models. This laptop is a gaming laptop and will quite happily power a htc vive/oculus rift.

I would argue that a Desktop has more space for cooling I.E that's why CPU's have massive coolers such as D15's and even the stock coolers are bigger than those in a laptop and the CPU's have to even be degraded to compensate for the lack of rquipment to cool.

This also applies to GPU's as mentioned.

Cheaper materials but still built well in my opinion
I have the Y50-70 (since 2014) and its never let me down, and I use it quite heavily

Some employers offer discounts too through Xexec, and that knocks about £100 off it as well if you go through their website, down to under £1,200.

It does have more space for cooling however laptops are designed to run a lot hotter than desktops for that reason. Thermal throttling doesn't start on my 17r4 with 1080gtx until above 90c and it won't hit that temp unless the vents are covered.

As I said, compare the stats for laptop 1070 & 1080 gpu to their desktop equivalent. Very little in it. Processors like the 6820hk & 7820hk have factory overclock settings to run them at full capacity if needed.
Student beanss does around 10%.
I wander if there is a thunderbolt and how much is the battery life, as I couldn't find detail review of this model.

For similar money Proteus V from PCspecialist could be a good choice / no thunderbolt port most likely .

I don't know about Thunderbolt, but it does have USB 3.
Battery life has varied between 4 hours and 2 hours. Depends on what you are doing I suppose. 4 hours was screen at 50% brightness and web surfing. 2 hours was 75% and CIV4.
