Lenovo Y500 Reviews

Now refurbished for $700 which is a good price, since you won’t get this performance with no other laptop for $700 currently. Anyway, consider other options under $1000

Probably the best gaming laptop in this price range in terms of gaming performance to price, including an 1080p screen. You get dual GT 650M GDDR5 GPU, I5-3230M which certainly suffice for gaming, 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD and a nice glossy 1080p. This is actually an excellent deal and in terms of performance, you get most of the time a gaming performance between the GTX 670MX and the 675MX, which is excellent, see review.

The battery performance is so-so, but as far as gaming laptop goes – this Y500 has an excellent value per money ratio and I truly suggest buying it.

Even if you don’t need the extra GT 650M – you can pull it out and sell it for $100-$150

Thanks for the heads up – the newegg promo ends tonight. I picked one up for gaming (Eve, WoW) and will give some feedback in a few weeks on this bad boy. It’s priced just right!

Do you think this is still a better buy than the refurb Asus G75VX for 900? It doesn’t seem like there’ll be another deal on the Y510 750 sli 🙁

Hey there,

I’m considering getting a gaming laptop especially for Rome Total War 2. Reason being I’m in the military and dont have the space to set up a nice rig anymore. RTW2 doesn’t come out till september and there might be better lap tops coming out around then but if not, is this a good one for the job?
