Lenovo Ideacentre Y700

 

The Lenovo Ideacentre Y700 isn't the most powerful or expandable gaming desktop out there, but it delivers fine performance (even with VR) while remaining affordable.

Affordable. Gaming performance is solid. Ready for VR. Lots of ports. Side panel is easy to open.

Limited expandability.

Conclusion It's hard to pass up a good deal—and the Lenovo Ideacentre Y700 is a good deal. There isn't a whole lot of expandability and you're limited to one graphics card—but if all you want is an entry-level gaming PC, this is certainly a capable one...

Lenovo Y700 ideacentre Gaming PC Review

 

I haven't gamed on a PC in years, so when I was offered a chance to review the Lenovo Y700 gaming desktop I couldn't turn it down. Seeing an Intel i5 processor in it, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 graphics card, and 8GB of RAM I wanted to push this PC to...

The design of the Y700 is one of a kind from other PCs and the performance is fantastic

The price is a bit too high for those that are looking to get into gaming for PC

The Lenovo Y700 ideacentre Gaming PC will be your go to gaming PC whether you're just getting into gaming for PC or wanting to upgrade this rig more and more. It'll be able to handle just about any PC game you throw at it.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Y700 Review and Ratings

 

The IdeaCentre Y700, in our $999 test configuration, achieved a nice balance of "just enough" power for mostly cranked-up 1080p gaming.

Gaming performance adequate for high-detail 1080p on most titles ; Quiet running ; Reasonable drive, memory expandability ; Aggressive case design ; Better-quality bundled mouse, keyboard than most

16GB of RAM would be nice ; No second PCI Express x16 slot ; Core i5-6400 is a step down for CPU-intensive work, if not gaming

It’s every gamer’s dream to play the latest games at their best settings. The entry price to do so historically hasn’t been what we’d call affordable, but it’s steadily gotten lower. The IdeaCentre Y700 we reviewed manages to push it down to three...

Lenovo IdeaCentre Y700 34-ISH Review — Center of the Pack

 

In spite of some truly underwhelming peripherals, the Lenovo Y700 34-ISH offers decent hardware at an affordable price. Even if it can't run the latest and greatest titles with stunning 4K definition and eye-popping textures, it does a respectable job...

Not too expensive ; Solid gaming performance ; Easily upgradable

Subpar peripherals ; No Blu-ray player

The IdeaCentre Y700 34-ISH plays games well at 1080p settings and has plenty of ports, but its included peripherals leave much to be desired.
