Lenovo Y700 950M Reviews

Lenovo Y700-15

The Lenovo Y700 950M is now selling for $500 from Adorama eBay store. This is a basic gaming laptop with a basic IPS display. The I5-6300HQ + GTX 950M DDR3 are a good combination for $500. Speakers are decent, build quality is ok. It’s a good machine for those who don’t want to spend more than $500 (no dime more).

If you are looking for higher performance for a little more money, there are the HP Pavilion 15t for $540 + tax which has a GTX 950M GDDR5 (close to the GTX 960M in performance).

Not a lot of words to say about this one. It’s considered a “deal” by me, because of its relatively high performance/price and value/price ratio for low performance gaming.
