Inside, this little gaming laptop features a sixth-generation 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, a discrete AMD Radeon R9 M375 graphics card (with 2GB of memory), a 500GB 5400RPM hard drive, 8GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support. And the 14-inch display? It sports an anti-glare coating, in-plane-switching, and a full HD resolution of 1,920 by 1,080. And thanks to the HDMI port on the side, you can enjoy your 1080p gaming experience on your HDTV or PC monitor as well.
Windows 10 Home (64-bit) comes installed by default, so you’ll have access to all of the new gaming-focused features coming out of Redmond. DirectX 12, Xbox One cross-play, local Xbox One game streaming, and game DVR are built right into the operating system. By all accounts, this is the best version of Windows for gamers.
Weighing in at a little under five pounds, this model certainly isn’t aimed at the ultrabook market. However, the combination of a quad-core Skylake processor and a respectable midrange graphics card makes this portable powerhouse a steal at the $699 price point. Unless you’re willing to drop over $1,000 for a high-end gaming laptop, this mobile gaming rig from Lenovo is hard to beat.
