    The Lenovo Ideapad Y900 is a formidable gaming machine in a well-constructed, sexy design. It's only serious flaw might be its price tag. You expect to pay more for a gaming laptop, but $2,500 is steep. For that price it could use a graphics boost to the...

    Good: Armored, tough look, Powerful graphics hardware, Room for expansions and upgrades, Slick keyboard and mouse, Solid, but pricey monitor, Brushed metal chassis, Plenty of graphics muscle, Gorgeous, 17.3-inch G-Sync display

    Bad: Price is outside some budgets, Heavy, bulky system

    ‘Tis the season to stomp on your enemies with the help of new gaming hardware, so we jumped at the chance to fire up a couple of Lenovo 's top gaming machines, a burly 17-inch gaming laptop and a gaming desktop PC designed in conjunction with Razer. Just...

  • On the one hand, Lenovo IdeaPad Y900-17ISK laptop is a very high performance solution that can be used for any resource-intensive tasks. Stunning screen, comfortable keyboard ergonomics and high performance make the work with this laptop is very comfortab...

  • Good: Extremely powerful, G-SYNC display, Mechanical keyboard, Sleek design, RGB backlighting

    Bad: GTX 980M graphics are a little dated

    As it sits currently the Ideapad Y900 sits at the top of Lenovo's gaming laptop line and rightfully so. Packed inside you have a Core i7-6820HK processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M 8GB graphics, 16GB of DDR4 memory, 128 GB PCIe NVMe SSD plus 1TB HDD storage...

  • If you're looking for a powerful gaming laptop with a mechanical keyboard, you can't go wrong with the Lenovo Ideapad Y900 — especially with the current 20% discount.Lenovo Ideapad 900$2499.99MSRP(USD)4.7 Out of 5Nailed itThe mechanical keyboard is a trea...

    Good: Beautiful Design, Mechanical Keyboard, Loud Speakers, GSync Display

    Bad: Lack of a Pascal GPU, Expensive

    If Lenovo released the Ideapad Y900 last year, it would be an instant recommendation and most likely one our editorial choice's. Unfortunately, the company was a bit late to the party, and it's hard to recommend a laptop that costs a premium price without...

    Good: Excellent performance for a notebook, Good looking design that doesn't overdo it, High-quality, 1080p display

    Bad: Large in every sense of the word, Almost too heavy at 10.1 lbs, Price might be a little too high at $2500

    All in all, I think the Lenovo IdeaPad Y900 has swayed me on gaming laptops as much as any one machine can. I like the look, I'm very pleased with the performance, and while I think the price is a little high at $2500, there are definitely other notebooks...

  • The Lenovo Ideapad Y900 is a solid gaming laptop. Even with a last-gen NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980m video card, the Lenovo Ideapad Y900 performs well for gamers and multimedia creators. Gears of War 4 looks and plays nice with this machine in Ultra settings an...

  • The internals of the Lenovo Ideapad Y900 scream best-in-class gaming machine. No one can argue that. It's the details that drive that point home, though.The keyboard is fantastic and so is the software that you manage it with. Though loud, the mechanisms...

    Good: Fast performance suited to demanding gaming, Mechanical keyboard with satisfying tactile feel, Sharp IPS display, Plenty of storage and ports, including USB-C

    Bad: Expensive given its last-generation graphics hardware, Large and heavy

    The Ideapad Y900-17 is a gaming laptop that plays demanding games at high settings, offers an array of features, and has an attractive display. Too bad it doesn't use more current graphics technology...

    Good: Beautiful Nvidia G-Sync display, Relatively quiet fans, Solid, clicky keyboard with dedicated hotkeys, Overclockable, Stellar audio, Good battery life for a gaming laptop

    Bad: Last-gen GTX 980M graphics at a high price (though Pascal update is coming), GTX 980M is not VR-ready, Awkward number-pad layout, Fans can come on abruptly, CPU runs hot

    With an excellent G-Sync screen, unique design flourishes, and a pleasing and colorful mechanical keyboard, Lenovo's new high-end gamer is impressive. But given its high price and last-generation graphics, gamers may want to wait for an update—or at leas...

    Good: relatively low surface and core temperatures, large keys with dedicated Macro keys, RAID 0 compatibility; 3x storage bays, unique design; strong build quality, wide keyboard backlight options, USB Type-C w/ Thunderbolt 3, very loud internal speakers, rem...

    Bad: disappointing Turbo Mode; high CPU temperature under extreme loads, keyboard does not offer "true" individually-lit RGB keys, loud pulsating fan behavior during low loads, sound reproduction could be more balanced, no 120 Hz/5 ms or 4K UHD display option...

    Lenovo is treading on deeper ground with its new Y900 and the $2000+ USD price tag proves it. While design and workmanship are sound, the new mechanical keyboard and Turbo Mode are a mixed bag. The keys feel soft and uneven and some users may not like its...

    Good: Sexy, redesigned chassis, Excellent customizable mechanical keyboard, Solid overall and graphics performance, Good Nvidia G-Sync display

    Bad: Lacks Nvidia Pascal GPU, Overpriced

    The Lenovo Ideapad Y900 has a first-of-its-kind clicky keyboard and eye-catching design, but we'd wait for Nvidia's newer GPU before buying...

  • Good: Neat and refreshing design with impeccable build quality, Configurable LED keyboard backlight with various zones and mechanical keys for gaming, Effective cooling system – the fans are seperately configurable, Supports two M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe SSDs (RAID 0...

    Bad: The display is a bit heavy, easy to twist due to the support of only one hinge and has distractingly big screen bezels, Unsatisfying touchpad performance, No G-Sync support for the built-in display, The fans are a bit on the noisy side, No switchable grap...

    The Lenovo Y900 should be treated as a premium notebook as it is. It falls into the same price category ($1 999 starting price) as the ASUS ROG G752 and Acer Predator 17 holding a few selling points over them but fails to deliver in some cases. For starte...
