Lenovo is no stranger to offering gaming machines that can give even the greenest of gamers the ability to play the latest and greatest, for a cost, of course. Today, Lenovo announced two new gaming machines: the Y70 Touch and ERAZER X315.
The Lenovo Y70 Touch comes with a 4th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, an NVIDIA GTX graphics card, a 1080p Full HD 17-inch touchscreen display, JBL-designed stereo speakers with subwoofer, a backlit keyboard, an external optical drive that supports both DVD and Blu-ray and multiple memory and storage options with up to 16GB DDR3L and 1TB of SSHD storage or 254GB SSD.
The Y70 weighs in under 7.5lbs, making it a lighter laptop than others in the same category. As for battery life, Lenovo says the Y70 Touch should last for up to five hours, although they didn’t specify if that’s 5 hours of game time or just general use. Something tells us that’s general use only.
For those who prefer to game on a desktop, Lenovo is introducing its ERAZER X315 as its latest affordable gaming desktop PC. Even though the X315 is budget-friendly, it still packs enough of a punch to keep its users happy with their purchase. The gaming desktop features an AMD Radeon R9 series graphics card, a quad-core processor and up to 2TB of SSHD.
The newly-designed chassis features front LED lights, a one-touch port cover for easy access and hidden air vents. Up to 12GB of memory is possible with the X315 along with four USB 3.0 ports and an always-on USB charging port.
The Lenovo Y70 is expected to become available in early October 2014 with models starting at $1,299. The Lenovo ERAZER X315, on the other hand, will become available starting in November 2014 for as low as $599.
