best gaming laptop at this price
by M.Rathore on 2015-06-03
i brought this laptop 3 months ago and i can play almost all games like watchdogs, assassin's creed unity,etc at max graphic settings without any lag....though its screen is not good for a laptop of this price, but it is unnoticeable while playing games.....and another big issue is that it heats up so badly while playing games that you can feel the heat on your fingers while playing.
Overall it is best gaming laptop.
BAD PRODUCT AND SUPPORT
by Himanshu Gawari on 2015-02-28
Lenovo Bad Service and Support after selling the product most important is the support. I bought lenovos Y50 Laptop to find out a few days later few screws are missing at the bottom of it. After calling lenovos support for dozen of time mentioning my laptop the not even a week under ADP and on site warranty. I had to visit a service center in Bangalore to find out they don't have spare parts for it. They refused to help and said nothing could be done or bring the screws VERY intelligent people if i had the screws or knew they would fall off in a week i would have tighten them myself. After few hours talking to people there they agreed to send a mail to lenovo about my problem now its been more then two weeks still no reply tried calling service center they are still waiting for screws from lenovo. And Now the lenovo y50 70 body started to crack from where the screw were missing now the problem went from a few screw missing to BAD QUALITY PRODUCT which body start to form cracks within a month. After experiencing lenovos support never ever going to buy a lenovo product or recommend it to anyone.
For those who think "Powerful Machine But AWFUL DISPLAY!"
by TARUN CHITTURI on 2015-05-03
BEST GRAPHICS LAPTOP..!
BEST SOUND QUALITY AND ITS LOUD..!
SLIM AND NOT HEAVY..!
Except the display everything is amazing. If you plan on spending around 90K for a gaming laptop, this is the the best you can get out there (May-2015). After spending around 79K for this laptop if you are willing to spend another 8K for buying a new LCD display compatible with this then PURCHASE it without a second thought.
There is an alternative if you prefer not to replace the screen by tweaking gama and saturation settings.
Buy the one with GTX-960m
by Vaibhav Sagar on 2015-08-22
it's a good laptop but for the guys who haven't bought the laptop yet you can now buy the one with gtx 960m model no. 59-441905 at the same price.

I bought this laptop from Paytm since it was available there in 69k. Below I will be mentioning the pros and cons of using this laptop after using it for about 15-20 days :
1. Awesome looks
2. Rubberized feel for the palm
3. Backlit keyboard which is really good.
4. Really great JBL speakers.
5. A mammoth of a graphics card ( 4 gb GDDR5 860m which is capable of running most games in medium to high settings )
6. Great build quality.
7. Wifi till now has been somewhat decent.
1. Lenovo after sales support is the worst I have experienced.
2. You have to backup your laptop as soon as you buy it because they will not provide any windows DVD. If your windows crashes, then you will have to pay Lenovo Rs.1600 and purchase a DVD from them if you want to reinstall genuine windows again.
3. You cannot partition your disk, otherwise Lenovo One-Key recovery will not work and your system may become unusable, so might have to reinstall windows after it ( happened with me on the 2nd day )
4. Display is a full HD TN display which is not as bad as people say it is. If you adjust the gamma levels and keep the brightness and 100 %, it is a better than average TN display.
5. Smudges : There will be a lot of smudges each and everyday and you have to regularly clean them.
6. 5400 rpm HDD so don't expect fast performance
7. Bloatware and other useless software preinstalled are really crap.
Overall, i would say, though there are many disadvantages, but the advantages eclipse them any day. Moreover, other laptops in this budget are no where near, (other than ASUS ROG model worth 70k). Moreover, its build quality is actually the best in under 1 lakh category. Do buy, and moreover, there is an offer going on from Lenovo, which gives u free warranty and a 1 tb hdd for rs.500, so do check that out.
Thank You ! :)

Its a bad product not worth of quoted as a gaming device.
The after sales services from the lenovo is so horrible there executive are rude and not telling us the right solution. I too have the same and facing missing screws problem and even after having onsite warranty they refused to fix it.
The laptop is also doing something weird as lenovo removed the turbo boost feature from it... overall the worst purchase ever already wanna sell it back even in half of the price..
better to go to asus.

Good product ,excellent service qbic india
by Sreekumar on 2016-03-07

its an excellent performance product ,only problems are little over heating,display is average
Don't be confused with misleading reviews!!!
by Abhijit Mukherjee on 2016-01-05
I bought the monster on 31 Dec 2015 from E-Mall (Kolkata) with the price of Rs 84000/-with 2 Yrs. extended warranty (extra Rs 1050/-).It is simply magnificent ultra-book with unbeatable performance. You can’t find his mate even worth Rs.110000/-. It is a serious machine with alien tech.
It is wonderful with extensive gaming with high frame rates. It is unmatched with graphics designing, Video/Photo editing works. As an editing fellow & as a designer my all works are done by it flawlessly. I get battery backup around 4 hrs. 30 mints with Wi-Fi. One thing I would like to mention that this notebook has different models therefore check before buy.
Some people complain about its display but it is absolutely gorgeous after 2015 model upgrade. As my model has IPS FHD LED ANTI GLARE display. Yes! It is IPS anti-glare LED display not LCD or backlit led therefore I said it has various models with differences. Except that all the specifications are same. It has no heating issues though I worked high intensive 8-9 hrs. in a day with lots of editing & designing. I play games 2-3 hrs. in a day with high settings no issues regarding fps are found.Trackpad is butter smooth love this.
Now I have few suggestion to potential buyers-
1) Don’t buy this notebook from online as it has various models buy it from a retailer.
2) Try to go with Windows 8.1 version rather than Windows 10 as it has few stability issues regarding drivers & security.
3) Work hard with everyday gaming.
TAKE CARE FOLKS!!!! ? ?
Gaming powerhouse at an affordable price!
by Abhinav Hazarika on 2015-07-25
Firstly, flipkart's delivery service was really fast as usual. Got it in 3days (excluding sunday) from Thane to Guwahati. As it was under flipkart advantage service, it was packed and shipped by flipkart. Bought it from JHSTretailers and the seller turned out to be as good as WS Retailer.
Now lets take a look at the beast:
1. This laptop is a beauty with its sleek design with red accents
2. The 4GB GDDR5 graphics is capable of running any game smoothly in high to ultra settings
3. The JBL speakers used here are better than the competition (there's also a subwoofer like vent at the bottom but I don't know if it works)
4. It has an extra ram slot if you want more than 8gb of ram (59-441908 has the extra ram slot)
5. The core-i7 4710HQ has a decent clock speed for gaming
6. The price here is a great discount as lenovo stores in my place asked 86k for it
1. The metals and plastics used are all fingerprint magnets
2. The display's viewing angles are bad and the colours are washed out but you can always tweak the saturation, contrast and gamma to your liking for better colours.
3. 5400rpm HDD may be a disappointment to some but, I don't mind it.
Overall its a decent laptop which can satisfy my gaming and graphic designing needs with ease. Haven't got any issues with the wifi as most people are saying on the internet (played fifa 11 and cs 1.6 in wireless LAN). So, finally I would like to say its one of the best gaming laptops at such an affordable price range.

Beauty and Beast Combined
by RMG on 2015-09-19
Processor: Intel Core i7 (4th Generation)
Processor Speed: 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost Upto 3.5 GHz
Graphics Processing Type: NVIDIA® GeForce® GT960 (N16P-GX)
Memory: 8 GB
Hard Drive Capacity: 1 TB
SSD Capacity: 8 GB
The lenovo Y50-70(59-445136) is a beast with a great combination of hardware.I had been using this for past 16 days.I can confidently say its perfect for Graphic Designers,Casual Gamers.It comes with an intel 4710Q quad core intel i7 processor.It has 8GB DDR3 RAM and is expandable to 32GB.There is a dedicated 4GB Graphics from nvidia,GTX 960M which I believe first time with lenovo.The hard-disk is 1TB SSHD with 8GB SSD for faster boot.It comes with a TN Panel (Full HD) display which is the only thing that is negative with the beast.I can say its not that terrible but not even average.So if you need some great colors you have to choose any other brand(Graphics Designers beware).It comes with two USB 3.0 Ports and a feature that charges the USB device when laptop is off(Always own USB).It comes with a red back-lit key board and numerical pad.One of the best part is the audio that is best in class among laptop.It features Dolby surround sound with JBL Speakers.The overall design with red-black gives it a gaming laptop look.It comes with windows 8.1 OS which can be upgraded to Windows 10.The battery life is 5 hours with windows 8.1 and 2.30 hours with windows 10.Lenovo gives 1 year warranty, but lenovo had an offer that gives a two year additional warranty and a 1tb HDD for 499rs.So you may checkout that too.
Such a Powerful Gaming laptop. My long wait turns to be a nice one. Gaming Beast
by Manoj on 2015-05-19
Hi everyone. I purchased this beast two weeks before, After a long dilemma. My first choice was the authorized
local store so that I can see it and feel it. But it costs 85,000. I have booked the laptop from the local store by
paying 1000 Rs. On the night I have booked my laptop, I visited amazon and have seen the same Y 50(Updated version)
is on sale for 78000 and also it s from the seller Cloudtail which is mentioned in the Lenovopromo.net's authorized
onlaine retailers. I called amazon to clarify the 2 years extended warranty(Peace of Mind offer). I didn't get
proper reply. My main motto is to buy this laptop at lesser price but also I don't like to compromise on the free
extended warranty as like everyone. I have ordered it on 12 o' clock without any hesitation at the same time I
leave a mail for cloudtail about the warranty. The next I got the mail from the seller that I can avail the lenovo
peace of mind offer. I got relieved. And I have chosen two day delivery. But it got delivered a day before the
expected delivery. I am very much satisfied with my BRAND new Y 50( Manufactured Feb-2015). The only disappointment
was the unavailability of th laptop bag. 5 Stars. GO for it without any hesitation pure GAMING LAPTOP. Thank you. Performance is great I tried Crysis 3, FIFA 14, Watch Dogs..in Ultra HD. Waiting for GTA 5. Hats-off to Amazon and Cloudtail.
Great Specs but lenovo has cheaped out on hardware
by Rohan J. on 2015-06-13
I had to return it because the hard disk crashed within 7 days but will probably buy it again soon. I did a lot of research before buying this and I still think it is a good buy. It has better specs than the competing ASUS ROG for sure and way better than alienware. The screen is a little s***ty but it is quite easily fixed by changing the display settings to "photo mode" in "lenovo user settings" and tinkering with brightness /contrast/saturation. I'm not sure but I think the screen issue might be a gpu problem - when you run it through the nvidia graphics card the screen looks fine but for normal usage, through the intel gpu, things look dull and washed out.
It does heat up quite a bit while gaming, you will need a cooling pad. I would also recommend changing the hard disk to an ssd or even simply a regular hdd, you will get better results than with the one they provide by default. Once you get the laptop definitely create all the recovery discs immediately.
- great specs. ran gta v on very high settings without any issues.
- build quality seems good. They seem to have fixed the hinge problem that was reported with the earlier batch.
- speakers are amazing, i was completely blown away by how good music sounded on them.
- horrible hard disk, throw it out and replace it as soon as you get it
- the screen is very under whelming for how much you pay for the laptop

Sleek and slimmed-down design.
Excellent gaming performance.
Good battery life for a gaming notebook
The Lenovo Y50 gaming laptop delivers powerful performance in a lightweight design.
Great specs, TERRIBLE laptop.
by Gokul Krishnan on 2016-03-26
The Lenovo Y50-70 might seem like a great choice due to its beastly specs and nifty price tag, but trust me, if you're looking for a decent midrange gaming laptop, this is not it.
I had read all the negative reviews about the laptop before purchasing it, thinking none of it would matter because of how great its specs are for the price. I was wrong.
You cannot enjoy anything on this laptop due to the EXTREMELY CHEAP hardware that Lenovo has used to set the price this low.
A few months after the purchase, the infamous plastic hinge broke off, which was luckily covered under warranty and fixed.
A few months after that, the hard drive failed out of the blue. Keep in mind that I take very good care of my devices.
This was a major blow as all my work had been stored in it, with no backups. Didn't really have a reason to back anything up as a hard drive that's less than 8 months old has very little chance of failing. However, the one used in Y50 is an exception. The WD Hybrid hard drive is one of the worst HDDs that you could possibly use and is the ultimate bottleneck of this laptop.
Along with all this, there was the consistent heating issue which requires you to purchase an expensive gaming cooling pad, which even then may not always be enough to bring down the temps.
The display is also very poor but I have gotten used to it.
The only real good thing about this laptop is the GPU and the processor. While they're not the best, they're not bad for the money you're paying.
If I could go back and stop myself from purchasing this, I would do that in a heartbeat.
The specs look good on paper but the hardware and overall usability is TERRIBLE.
If you're looking for a decent, midrange gaming laptop, this is not it.
Go for the Asus ROG GL552 or something else.
by Himanshu dubey on 2015-10-13
Its best laptop that i ever had seen but still it has few issues that are need to be consiedred
1. Pure and best gaming experince
2. Geat sound and dolby features provided along with jbl speakers
3. Extended warranty is provided
4. Ram can be expanded up to 16 gb in old model
5. Elegant and slim design of laptop that makes it less heavy and sexy
Now coming to its disadvantageS
1. Poor FHD display , it restrict ur angle of view
2. Poor battery life as u need to keep laptop on charge it gives up to 3 hours battery life
3. While gaming u need to connect it to charger as on battery as it discharge the gaming experince is very poor
4. Heating issue while gaming , u need to buy a cooling pad to enjoy uninterupted gaming
The Best Budget Gaming Laptop
by Sumedha Ponnamperuma on 2015-07-24
One of the best laptops i have found so far at a budget price range, the back lit keyboard is really good and it does not harm your eyes at all, the CPU power is very sufficent to handle daily tasks at ease same goes for the RAM as well. 8GB is enough for todays recommendation. Gaming is also good on the laptop, wish is was the 900 series GTX GPU though but this is good enough for running games for another year and a half on high settings. Speakers are magnificent thank you Lenovo And JBL for providing suck great speakers.
I bought this laptop mainly for my school work and for slight gaming also, as i would be doing 3D Designing i needed a good enough laptop and this was one.
Dont look more go forth and buy it you wouldn't regret buying it
Horrible laptop. Not FHD screen. Left/Right click does not work. And very slow.
by herschel on 2016-05-23
I bought this laptop last year. I agree with few people mentioned here that the specs are really good on paper ,but the performance is not that good. Rather is it not good at all. And I doubt whether the laptop delivered to me is even original or not. It makes fan sounds, the heating is also high. The main problem is , it is comparatively very slow and the screen is not FHD. Video if you see on this screen is horrible. You will get pixels.Also the right / left does not work. It has to be the mouse all the time to work it !!!!!!. I would suggest you please have hands-on experience on this laptop, see it yourself and then only think about buying it .
Best gaming laptop at the given price
by Tanush S. on 2015-08-25
Its an amazing laptop... Works great with windows 10... I have used lots of laptops in the past but the biggest issue I always faced was overheating. lenovo has done an amazing job with this one, better cooling that most laptops under 1lakh. I'm not comparing it to high end alienware, Asus n MSI gaming laptops, but I feel for half the price u are definitely getting at least 75% of their performance. I'll be upgrading to a ssd as I feel the hybrid HDD is actually holding back the performance capacity... This beast of a device needs a ssd to shine.
Pretty satisfied with this
by Sriram Swaminathan on 2015-07-24
Got this one for a pretty good deal. First off, the screen that everyone has been complaining about is all about personal preference. I actually like it. Its not an apple standard display, but this will do. The system itself is pretty solid, a bit on the heavier side. Looks are one of the best aspects of this laptop. Windows 8.1 might give you some trouble, but a standard system update must fix most of the problems. Gaming is a delight in this. Video and picture editing is real smooth. Overall a really good laptop.
