When you hear someone say “Gaming Laptop” does Lenovo come to mind? Likely not, but I think after this review it just might. Today we are taking a look at Lenovo’s latest gaming laptop which is the Y700. It follows in the footsteps of the Y50 and comes in a few different flavors. The version that we are taking a look at is the Y700 Touch, which is the 15.6-inch version that has a 10-point touch display. Under the hood you have an Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad core processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M dedicated graphics, 16GB of DDR4 memory, a 128GB solid state drive as well as a 1TB 7200 RPM hard drive for your games. The Y700 also has cool features like a nice red backlit keyboard, powerful JBL speakers, and a very slick aluminum lid. Lenovo also has unleashed their own gaming accessories which they sent us their gaming headset, mouse, and backpack. Read on and we see what the Y700 is all about and how these gaming accessories compliment it.

As we mentioned in the introduction Lenovo sent us the Y700 along with their gaming backpack, gaming headset, and gaming mouse. All of which we will go over later in the review.
The Y700 comes in a pretty plain box that has a photo of the laptop and says Lenovo on the side.
Getting everything out of the box we have the laptop itself, power adapter, power cable, and a safety, warranty, and setup guide.
