Lenovo IdeaPad Y470 and Y570 Updated For High Performance

Lenovo announced the IdeaPad Y Series of laptops including the IdeaPad Y570 and IdeaPad Y470 at CES 2011 in Las Vegas today.

The new IdeaPad Y Series laptops are aimed at users who want performance and multimedia chops with the latest Intel Second Generation Core i processors and options for switchable NVIDIA GeForce 525M graphics.


With performance in mind these two IdeaPad laptops can be configured with up to a Core i7 processor with TurboBoost 2.0 which can deliver extra power when needed.

For users who want to game or need a more powerful multimedia experience the switchable NVIDIA GeForce 555M GPU with 1GB of RAM is a good option to look for when configuring the IdeaPad Y series laptops. Because it is switchable users will be able to use the Intel graphics which are integrated into the new Intel Core i processors to save battery life and turn on the NVIDIA graphics when needed for gaming, video editing and more.

The JBL speakers and premium SRS sound round out the multimedia experience with a better audio setup than you’ll find on budget machines.

The IdeaPad Y series laptops include Lenovo Enhanced Experience 2 which means the computer will boot and shut down faster, there are also multimedia optimizations which will help deliver the optimum entertainment experience.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y Series will be available starting in May with a base price of $899.
