When choosing gaming laptops, gamers would either compare specs, performance, design, and price; or they can dive right into their favourite games or games they’ve always wanted to try, and see how well the laptop is able to bring the game to life. One such powerhouse device that is scoring high with players in both game and work enjoyment modes, is the Lenovo IdeaPad Y700. With the Y700’s game-worthy features, top PC games based on gameplay, storylines and pure enjoyment are sure to provide hours of topline entertainment.


World of Warcraft

In World of Warcraft (WoW), players take on the roles of Warcraft heroes as they undertake quests, go on adventures, and explore the gargantuan expanse of the Warcraft universe. As a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), thousands of players can play together in the same world. They can fight against each other or interact peacefully and form alliances and friendships. Released by Blizzard Entertainment in 2004, WoW remains one of the most subscribed-to MMORPGs.

The Lenovo Y700’s large and vibrant display plus responsive and comfortable keyboard make the WoW experience completely satisfying. Gamers can enjoy WoW on its highest graphic settings. The Y700 not only gives impressing visuals, but is equipped with JBL Speakers and Dolby Home Theater because sound is always a vital dimension in both movies and immersive gameplay. With the Y700, gamers can get both stunning visuals and awesome sound in one gaming laptop package.


Hitman: Absolution

In the stealth third-person game, Hitman: Absolution, players take on the role of skilled assassin Agent 47, who must rescue a girl, Victoria, the target of agency 47. Players take on disguises, use whatever objects are at hand to remove targets, and have the option to either kill silently or extravagantly. Either way, patience, timing, economy of movement, and strategy are rewarded over callous wasteful gameplay. Hitman: Absolution can be played at the IdeaPad Y700’s highest graphic settings – its picturesque locations, fluid character movements, gripping action sequences, plus the crisp sounds (grunts, groans, shots, clangs of metal) are all so enjoyable on this play-anywhere PC.

The IdeaPad Y700 has a full-sized keyboard and a number pad that’s spaced out comfortably and with just the right keystroke travel. The W, A, S, D keys, the default direction keys for most PC games, are highlighted, easy to see, with no need to glance down and hunt for those keys, a move that can make gamers lose their game tempo. Fans inside the Y700 keep the keyboard, touchpad, and palm rest area temperature low, so gamers can comfortably keep on playing.


Fallout 4

The post-apocalyptic role-playing game Fallout 4 is set in Boston 2287, 210 years after a nuclear war. The player emerges from a bunker and the gameplay is similar to Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. Meaning, first and third-person perspectives are available in a non-linear gameplay. Companions can help out with battles and in scavenging (it’s a wide dystopian world out there). Gamers can deconstruct buildings and items and use them to create settlements. The game’s setting and premise are alluring, as are the rich details and room for discovery and the immersive gameplay.

These are just a few of the games that showcase the IdeaPad Y700’s gaming prowess – gamers get quad-core power, awesome graphics, and a total multimedia experience with hi-definition display, booming surround sound, and subwoofer. Gamers just have to put their game face on and don’t have to worry about heating issues because the Y700’s thermal cooling will keep things, well…cool.



Dota 2 is a highly competitive, addicting, and very colourful game enjoyed by pros and casual gamers around the world. Players pick from a selection of heroes and form two opposing teams comprised of five players per team. Heroes then fight to control a beautiful, textured, and highly detailed landscape, where cunning, stealth, ingenuity, and teamwork pay off. What started as a fan-made Warcraft 3 modification is now a worldwide hit.

A game this addictive and competitive deserves the complete gaming package that is the Lenovo IdeaPad Y700, a portable gaming PC with 6th Generation Intel Quad-Core i7 Processor, NVIDIA GTX 960M 4 GB GDDR5, and Dolby Home Theater. This combo of specs gives both casual and pro gamers an intense, immersive, and satisfying gaming experience. Practise alone or with friends or maybe even bring the Y700 to a local tournament to up the game. The Y700 weighs 2.6 kilograms, and fits into a large backpack. With its 15-inch frame, it’s also a great portable workstation for on-site work and entertainment.


Sims 4

The Sims 4 is the 4th main installment in The Sims franchise. As with previous games in the series, The Sims 4 lets users create and control a neighbourhood of “Sims”, or virtual people. The Sims 4 features an improved “Create a Sim”, an updated set of building tools, and comparatively more complex Sims due to the added elements of emotions and some new traits. The Sims series is so popular that it has sequels and spin-offs playable on various computer platforms (The Sims 2, 3, and 4), mobile platforms, and online. The richer the details users can savour in the game, the better the experience.

If gamers want rich and detailed gaming, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y700 has what they are looking for. Gamers can see the tiniest of details with crisp and vivid colours in the Y700’s Full HD (1920 x 1080) or Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) screen. With its Frameless UHD Anti-Glare display, gamers can enjoy work, games, browsing, or videos regardless of being outdoors under the sun or indoors with uneven or harsh lighting.
