Lenovo Y50 is the next GeForce 960M star, already available

Y50Today, gamers were pleasantly surprised by the new ASUS ROG G501, which appeared on the market, although for pre-orders only. Just a couple of hours later, we became aware of another great laptop launch, through some of our special sources. A laptop about whose shipping we told you two days ago – Lenovo’s gaming flagman Y50.

The particular configuration of the updated Lenovo Y50, which we found on the Bulgarian market, will cost you ~1130 EUR and features NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M (4GB GDDR5), an Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor, 8GB of RAM and two 1TB hard disks, which gives you a total storage of 2 Terabytes – more than enough for all of your games and HD movies.

The screen is 15.6-inch, Full HD IPS and we don’t know what panel is used yet, but you’ll find that out, along with all of its capabilities, very soon, in our detailed review. Yes, the new Lenovo Y50 is already in our hands and we are definitely putting it to the test.

You can see the full specs below.

I’m curious if the HDDs are easily replaceable, so that you can swap one for an SSD. Hopefully you could look into that for the review:)

That aside, nice specs!

960M? Poor a little. I have got y50-70 with 860M. I guess it doesn’t have sense to update?

How can we import a bulgarian laptop to the UK?

the prev Y50 series had a very bad display but had realyl good config for the price. the main reason to buy the new one wud be for the better display, not performance upgrade. As i always wanted to own one, now its possible with the upcoming new, better display, the only shortcoming.

You can go along and change just the panel. (:
