Performance and Benchmarks
The NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M is a mid-range graphics card, meaning the machine will be able to handle most modern games well as long as the graphics settings are turned down to "medium" or even "low" in some cases. The Y570 scored over 9200 points in the 3DMark06 gaming benchmark. Playing 1080p video will also not be a problem, and multi-tasking several programs at once should be a breeze thanks to the dual-core second-gen Intel Core i5 CPU.
Overall, these are good specifications for a multimedia notebook; not to mention the "perks" such as USB 3.0, a physical graphics switch on the front, and maybe most importantly, the price range. Another interesting fact about this notebook is that the GeForce GT 555M is a 3D-ready graphics card, but since the display doesn't have a 3D emitter you'll need to connect it to a 3D monitor or HDTV via the HDMI cable.
