TechRadar's verdict

"The more we play games on the Y500, the more impressed we are with Lenovo's minimalist design aesthetic. We can only hope that other system manufacturers learn from Lenovo here, thereby ending the string of over-priced, kitchen-sink gaming laptops we still occasionally see in favor of more chaste and powerful configurations."
