Main Features:

  1. Processor: The i7 Dual Core/Quad Core Intel next gen Ivy Bridge Processor provides a muscle power to the multimedia support. This brings high power to the multimedia programs.
  2. Operating System: The Y-Series from Lenovo basically runs on Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium which provides it a smooth, clear and sober navigation which a person most probably wants.
  3. Storage Memory: This notebook is built with 1TB Hard Disk space which is really suitable for everybody I think. You have a large plenty of disk space to enjoy movies, games, music etc. I think this much disk space is enough for any person.
  4. Boot Speed: It feels really irritated when your laptop takes much time to start. But now you don’t have to feel embarrassed. Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 Notebook is built with the technology of high-speedboot time. It takes just 10 seconds or less to start.
  5. Data Transfer: As I have mentioned in the basic features and full specifications; it is built with 2 X USB 2.0 ports and 2 X 3.0 USB ports. Now, 3.0 ports can transfer your data 10 times much faster than 2.0 ports and eats less energy too. This is the best feature I liked personally.
  6. Intel Wireless Connectivity: Many of you connect or want to connect your laptop with big-screened TV or monitors. Will you connect your laptop with messy cables? Now you don’t have to play with inconvenient cables to connect your laptop to big screens. Just choose any Y-Series Lenovo laptop/notebook and feel free to use Intel Wireless Display Technology.

      Although I don’t know much about Dell Inspiron 15R/17R and its specs. But if you want a super gaming device with superior features then you have to go for Lenovo Ideapad Y580. Else you can Google; it’s your wish. ;)
