Not that long ago we took a look at what Lenovo was offering for mobile gamers when we reviewed their Ideapad Y700 Touch gaming laptop. This 15-inch laptop really raised out eyebrows and definitely made us consider Lenovo a player in the gaming laptop market. Well now they’ve sent us their Ideapad Y900 gaming laptop, which is the big brother to the Y500. This 17-inch laptop is truly a desktop replacement and features a Core i7-6820HK processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M 8GB graphics, 16GB of DDR4 memory, 128 GB PCIe NVMe SSD plus 1TB HDD storage, Killer AC Wireless, and a mechanical gaming keyboard. Is this laptop the ultimate powerhouse gamers are looking for? Read on as we find out!
Lenovo really is not know for their packaging and the Y900 keeps with that theme. The front of the box has a photo of the Y900 and not much else. On the back there really is not much else.
Getting everything out of the box we have the Y900 17-inch laptop, power adapter, power cable, USB optical drive, extra keycaps and a key puller, and a quick start guide.
