Last month on June 4th Lenovo equipped two new PCs with the latest and greatest 4th generation Intel “Haswell” processor: the 15.6-inch Y510p and smaller 14-inch Y410p gaming laptops. These are ultimately replacements for their old 3rd gen “Ivy Bridge” equipped Y500 and Y400 machines that have been a popular choice among buyers looking for a balance between performance and cost. Now with a significant processing boost (~10%) these machines are on the market and priced to sell.
If you’re looking for a sub $1,000 gaming laptop that’s up to date, the Y510p and Y410p should definitely be on your strong consideration list (both comes with the latest GeForce GT 750M). For the 4th of July week, both laptops are getting strong discounts:
