Gaming is one of the big things to look forward to in 2016, thanks to the momentum it has gathered in the past years with the onset of e-sports. Lenovo has thrown in a few products to support the industry, in the form of the Ideapad Y900, the Y900 RE or Razer Edition, and the Y27g Curved Gaming Monitor.
The Ideapad Y900 is part of the company’s Yoga line of devices, but geared to gamers. It’s around an inch thick, with an imposing 17.3-inch full HD display. Initial spec line include a quad core 6th Gen Intel Core i7 K-series processor, , NVIDIA® GTX 980M graphics, and a mechanical backlit multi-color keyboard. The cool thing about the Y900 is the overclock button, which can boost overall performance with a simple press.
The RE version has a similar processor to the vanilla Y900, but has greater freedom when it comes to upgrades via a push lever that opens a stylish semi transparent side panel – showing off its neat, internal cable routing for future upgrades. It also comes with dual NVIDIA GTX 970 graphics and a Razer Edition, the Ideapad Y900 RE is bundled with a Razer Chroma keyboard and mouse.
The Y27g Curved Gaming Monitor is a first for Lenovo, packing 144 Hz refresh rates and 8 ms response time. The 27-inch FHD VA display comes in vanilla and Razer-stamped versions, with the latter having customizable Chrome lighting effects.
The Ideapad Y900 and the Y27g Gaming Monitor and their Razer Editions will be available in June 2016. The y900 retails for $1,999, the Y900 RE for $2,299, the Y27g at $549.99, and the Y27g RE for $599.99.
