Lenovo 3000 Y500 Review


The price of the Y5000 – Rs 56,000 – is just right, we think, for its configuration.

The feature set is sound: the buttons on the front can be used for battery management, there’s a 1.3 megapixel camera on top of the display, and there’s a media centre called “Shuttle Center” which can also be controlled using the bundled remote.

The face verification feature is another cool feature: it can distinguish faces accurately, and looks at your face for logging you in to Windows. It even logs a cam-shot of the last user who failed the verification process, though it should be noted that the verification process can be bypassed altogether just by closing the window – no real security here.

The sound subsystem situated on the front of the unit features Dolby-certified surround sound, and can be turned on or off via a switch; ditto the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Battery life is about average with a running time of 2:33 hours under stress. The laptop was almost perfectly cool despite all the stress, thanks to the vents provided on the left and back of the unit.

The price of the Y5000 – Rs 56,000 – is just right, we think, for its configuration.
