Finally, Lenovo has entered the business of 4K laptops. Even though the shipping has come after quite a delay, the company is ready to challenge Toshiba, which was the only company selling 4K laptop.
The device comes with a 5.6 inch screen and is named IdeaPad Y50 UHD laptop. The device targets gamers and is priced at $1,299.99 USD. It has an image resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and stands out as the highest resolution available in modern laptops.
The competing Toshiba model is priced at $1,499.99 and is costlier than the Lenovo model. Toshiba started shipping the P50 model in April 2014 and for few weeks the sale was halted, but now the product is live at Toshiba Store again.
Lenovo’s Yoga 2 Pro, Razer’s Blade gaming laptop and Samsung’s Ativ Book 9 plus had the highest pixel resolution before the Lenovo model came out with a ratio of 3200 x 1800.
Lenovo had earlier announced two 4K models: the 14-inch Y40 and the Y50. But these models which were shipped initially lacked 4K screens and had HD displays. The Y40 model is still to come with a 4K screen. Lenovo has stated the difficulty in procuring 4K screens caused for this delay.
The Y50 is already power packed with latest technologies which makes it a laptop for hard-core gaming fans. The laptop has Core i7 i7-4710HQ processor, 8GB of DRAM, an NVidia GeForce GTX 860M graphics chip that has 2GB of video memory and 1TB of hard-drive storage. A cheaper model priced at $1,599.99 packs a Core i7 CPU, 16GB of DRAM, the GeForce GTX 860M with 4GB of video memory and 512G B solid-state drive storage.
Both the laptops runs on Windows 8 and has Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, an HDMI connector and 2 USB 3.0 ports.
