Introduction

We have looked at a few QHD and UHD gaming notebooks, and more often than not, they have small screens where the resolution makes things slightly more difficult due to icon and application scaling. Even with a decent sized screen, some of these notebooks can't properly play games at 4K (UHD) because the onboard mobile graphics or CPU aren't powerful enough.

 

 

Lenovo and other vendors know that the demand for higher resolution displays on the mobile side is more of a vanity play, as bigger is always better, except when you want smooth gameplay on the go. That's the reason notebooks such as the Lenovo Y920 exist. They combine a decent 1080P panel with a strong mobile graphics card, powerful overclocked mobile CPU, and even gaming feature such as a mechanical keyboard.

 

Let's see what the Y920 has to offer.
