Lenovo IdeaPad Y470p pushes gaming with Radeon HD 7690M

Lenovo puts up IdeaPad Y470p for sales

Lenovo has stepped up its gaming credentials by quietly taking orders for the IdeaPad Y470p. The 14-inch notebook swaps out NVIDIA's low-end GeForce GT 520M video of the regular Y470 for a mid-range AMD Radeon HD 7690M, giving it an edge in 3D games. The 2.2GHz quad Core i7 and 8GB of RAM help keep the system running at full pace.

The system also fits a 750GB hard drive and USB 3.0 input. Most of the sacrifices include a short battery life, which tops out at four hours, and the 1366x768 display resolution. At just under 4.9 pounds, the Y470p is heavy relative to its screen size, although lighter than most full-size 15-inch systems.

Lenovo's trimming helps make the new IdeaPad one of the less expensive gaming-friendly systems available, at $799 without having to pick any options. Orders made as of Saturday ship by February 13. [via The Verge]
