The 10+ pound laptop packs a lot of gaming features into its huge form factor. This includes a true mechanical keyboard, a 17 inch 75 hz 1080p display, quad core i7 processor, 16 gigs of DDR4 RAM, and a 980M GPU.
The model I tested also has a super fast 256GB Samsung SSD and a 1 terabyte 5400 RPM hard drive. Both are replaceable.
Performance did not disappoint, with most current and popular games I tested delivering solid frame rates at close to or over 60fps. I was especially impressed with the Gsync technology on the display that kept everything running smooth with no screen tearing.
At $2600 (or thereabouts) this is not the typical budget computer we look at. But it makes for a very useful gaming system that can be moved around a little more efficiently than a gaming desktop PC. It’ll be interesting to see if Lenovo integrates the new Pascal architecture into this form factor.
