₹70,090 Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 Dusk Black: A laptop packed with some serious firepower
Lenovo is selling the IdeaPad Y500 Dusk Black laptop directly from its online store for ₹70,090 with one year onsite warranty + 1 year accidental damage protection. Even though the laptop is expensive for the common household, those looking for some serious performance should find the Y500 at par with their expectations.
This top-of-the-range “prosumer” workstation from Lenovo runs an Intel Core i7 3632QM processor – one of the fastest mobile processors in the market today. It has four cores clocked at 2.4GHz which can turbo clock to 3.2GHz plus features 6MB cache.
The laptop comes in a dusk black colour, packs 16GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive spinning at 5400RPM, a DVD-RW reader, a dedicated Nvidia Geforce GT650M GPU with 2GB GDDR5 RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000 and a 15.6-inch 1,920 x 1,080 pixel full HD display.
The rest of the spec sheet is made up of a card reader, a 1-megapixel webcam, up to three hours battery life (with a 6-battery cell), Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, Windows 8, GbE NIC, four USB ports, HDMI/VGA ones, and two 1.5W JBL speakers. As expected the device is massive. It weighs more than 2.7Kg and is 36mm thick at its thickest.
