Lenovo IdeaPad Y70 Touch

  |   by Ian Debevoise

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y70 Touch is not a laptop for one specific use but rather can be used well for many different tasks and possesses a nice 10-point touch screen in an elegant body. Its Intel Core i7-4710HQ quad-core processor is one of the best you’ll find in any laptop device while the Nvidia GTX 860M graphics card does a fine job on games and the 16 GB of RAM allow the user to preform multiple tasks without slowing down the computer. The 1 TB of space would be nice if it didn’t slow down the laptop significantly.
