So you have big ambitions, but not a fat wallet. You want to play Crysis 3, Mass Effect 3 solo and multi-player and Batman Arkham City... maybe even some Call of Duty: Black Ops. The Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 just might be the answer; for $1,100 to $1,200 or considerably less when Lenovo's running one of their frequent sales, you can get this 15.6" full HD, quad core beast with dual NVidia GT650M graphics cards, 8 gigs of RAM or more and a beefy hard drive. In case you missed it, our Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 video review is here.
In this video, we test and demo three top, demanding games at full 1920 x 1080 resolution: Crysis 3, Mass Effect 3 and Batman Arkham City. We've got FRAPS running so you can see the frame rates and we show you the settings we used for each game. Yes, it does well.
