Make no bones about it, a 17.3-inch laptop is a huge machine and ideal for gaming. Back in May, Lenovo launched their new 2014 14-inch Y40 and 15.6-inch Y50 gaming laptops. Missing from the lot was an expected 17.3-inch beast that finally made its debut today – the Lenovo Y70 gamer laptop. On top of that, they’re offering a $201 discount this week.
Lenovo Y70 Touch Gaming Laptop is $1,699 with free shipping (normally $1,900).
Go big or go home. This 17.3-inch Y70 laptop stands apart from its smaller Y40 and Y50 brothers in a few key ways. For starters, the huge 17.3-inch display is a Touchscreen, which is not an option found on its predecessors. The base model for the Y70 also has a ton of high end specs, including its 4th gen Core i7 processor, a huge 512GB SSD, 16GB RAM, and GeForce GTX 860M 4GB graphics card.

While it’s only speculation at this point, it could very well be the future of the Y70 is an upgraded configuration with a 4K 2160p display vs. the current 1080p.
