The Lenovo Y50 4K laptop is the company’s 4K variant of the Y50 Gaming laptop which I previously featured a few days ago. Like the Y50, the Y50 4K UHD version features the same design and built quality. It is powered by an Intel Core i7 Quad-Core Haswell processor, has lots of RAM and storage options, great keyboard with numeric keys, and comes with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M Maxwell discrete graphics processor. But what sets the Y50 from the Y50 4K UHD is its display (well obviously!) The Y50 4K features a 15.6″ inch display with a 3840×2160 Ultra High Definition or 4K display, giving you more room to work with, and images and text just look fantastic. Check out more details about the Lenovo Y50 4K UHD premium multimedia laptop below and find out if this one is the 4K laptop for you. There’s also a video review below for additional reference, you should watch that one as well.

Lenovo Y50 4K Ultra HD Features
Just like I said earlier, the Lenovo Y50 UHD 4K features a new stylish design, similar to the other Y50 series. It features a nice backlit AccuType keyboard with great tactile feedback. It also features JBL stereo speakers with subwoofer and Dolby Advanced audio technology.
Under the hood, the Lenovo Y50 4K is powered by a 4th Generation Intel Core i7-4710HQ quad-core Haswell processor with a base clock speed of 2.50GHz and Turbo clock speed of 3.5GHz. The processor is paired with either an 8GB DDR3L 1600MHz memory or a 16GB depending on the model.
Its 15.6-inch UHD display is driven by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M discrete graphics processor in either 2GB or 4GB VRAM. For storage, there is a 512GB SSD variant and a Hybrid 1TB 5400 RPM hard drive + 8GB SSHD. The Lenovo Y50 4K doesn’t have an optical drive but an external DVD RW drive may be included, depending on the retailer.
For network connectivity, it features an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 with Bluetooth 4.0. It also comes with an integrated 720p HD webcam and dual digital array microphone. For I/O ports, it has 2x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0, an audio combo jack for headphone and mic, an HDMI port, a 4-in-1 card reader (SD/MMC/SDXC/SDHC), a LAN port and a SPDIF port.
