Processors operating as Cores are improvised versions of entry-level Celeron and Pentium and are much more powerful. For server and workstations however, an even more effective processor called the Xeon is available. The Intel cores in use today are the Intel Core i3, Intel Core i5 and Intel Core i7 and earlier models such as Intel Core 2 Solo, Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Core 2 Quad, and Intel Core 2 Extreme lines.

A Core duo processor comprises two cores on a single die, with a 2MB L2 cache shared by both the cores along with an arbiter bus to control the L2 cache and the FSB access.

  • - The JBL stereo speakers, similar to the ones in the IdeaPad Y650, are great-sounding and pack better-than-average punch for movie viewing and headphone-free music listening.


  • - The feature set is rock solid at this price.


  • - Webcam and Facial Recognition The 1.3-megapixel Webcam captured sharp, colorful images, even in low light.


  • - Inset screen is not as nice as the Mini 10's edge-to-edge glass..

  • Rating Unavailable

    - Battery life is quiet long.
    - Glossy 10.1-inch screen is very attractive.


  • - Limited configuration options • Inset screen is not as nice as the Mini 10's edge-to-edge glass.


  • - The 15.6 inch widescreen has a native resolution of 1366 x 768, which is better than most notebooks.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - Sensitivity is great out of the box... requiring only a light touch to move the cursor across the screen.
    - Keyboard and Touchpad The keyboard is comfortable to type on and has a pretty solid typing surface.


  • - The trackpad on the IdeaPad Y550 uses multitouch, and we think it could be put to better use.
    - Movies on the Y550's 15.6-inch 720p screen looked pretty good.
    - Battery life on the Lenovo IdeaPad Y550 was pretty good.

    - We were very pleased  about the touchpad , as it has a good position and is sufficiently sized .

  • Rating Unavailable

    - The touchpad is large and responsive, although we still prefer a mouse when it comes to fast and accurate control during games.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - The display border seems generally sturdy.
    - Touchpad

    The matt surface of the touchpad is relatively smooth but does allow you to steer the cursor precisely and effortlessly.
    - The mechanical properties of the two touchpad buttons are satisfactory.
    - However both the keyboard and the touchpad are satisfactory.
    - The webcam integrated into the lid of the notebook is handy for video conferencing.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - On the Synaptics pad it is easy to drag and lift off, while the ALPS models seem to need a strong tap at the end, otherwise it won't let go of the selected item and you keep dragging it around the screen.
    - Keyboard support is excellent, barely a hint of flex on the main section of the keyboard.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - There was no bass at all but the overall sound is good enough to conduct a webchat.
