Its latest introduction is 15.6 inch screen Y50 Touch 4K. This midsize laptop combines touch screen with mainstream graphic, which makes it suitable for both non-gaming and gaming tasks. Biggest weakness was touch screen display which looked washed out and dull having bad viewing angles at off-axis, marring a top tier product. But Lenovo makesY50 having full UHD display that fixes all the big problems that original had. Main problem is that it is unable to play majority of games at a resolution of 4K. Casual and older games can be played but detail settings have to be dialed down to a very low level. Despite this you would benefit from the new screen even if games have been set at lower resolutions due to fixed viewing angle.
