Cutting-Edge Mobile Performance.
Performance and portability go hand in hand in IdeaPad Y Series notebooks. For too long, laptops haven't had what it takes under the hood to handle multimedia-intensive tasks — but the Y Series changes all that.

From advanced processing to next-generation graphics, from unbeatable boot times to lightning-fast data transfer, IdeaPad Y Series laptops change the game in mobile multimedia.
  • Workhorse CPUs. Latest-generation Intel® Core™ quad-core processing provides the muscle to handle multimedia-intensive programs.
  • Storage to spare. With up to 1 TB HDD storage, you'll always have plenty of room to stash movies, music, games, and other files.
  • Accelerate with SSD. Choose a model with an optional solid-state drive to boost performance even more.
  • Boot up quickly. Sick of waiting forever for your laptop to start? Enhanced Experience 3 for Windows 7, available on select Y Series models, allows for boot times as much as 40 percent faster than PCs with similar configurations.
  • Transfer data 10 times faster. USB 3.0 ports — available on select models — transfer data 10 times faster than USB 2.0 connectors and use less energy to do so.
  • From laptop to big screen. Want to watch notebook content on a compatible, big-screen TV or monitor? Choose a Y Series model with Intel® Wireless Display (WiDi) technology, which lets you connect without messy, inconvenient cables.
