Lenovo introduces Y70 Touch, ERAZER X315 gaming machines for fall release

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.
