The Lenova IdeaPad Y530 is a terrific multimedia notebook with surround speakers and a subwoofer, an HDMI out and touch sensitive media controls as well as a “frameless” display.
The IdeaPad Y530 has a wide array of multimedia features that makes it ideal for dorm rooms or to be used as the ‘media hub’ of your home theater system. Like the Lenovo Ideapad S10e, the IdeaPad Y530 also features the unique QuickStart operating system, allowing fast access to programs, music, and photos.
The IdeaPad Y530 features an Intel Core 2 Duo process, a 15.4 inch WXGA Glossy Widescreen display with a 1280×800 resolution and offers you a 2GB DDR2 of memory.
Also included is a 1.3 megapixel camera, four speakers (and the subwoofer) and a Dual Layer CD/DVD Recordable.
The Lenova IdeaPad Y530 has an all black casing with a crosshatch pattern for style and easy gripping. The inside of this notebook is a glossy black surface that surrounds the display. The smooth black and grey interior is offset by orange media buttons, LED lights and a volume rocker. The color scheme gives this laptop a clean and sleek look.
The WXGA display is bright and displays vibrant colors and great contrast.
The keyboard is spacious and well thought out, giving you a very comfortable feel when typing. The touch sensitive media bar is located above the keyboard that gives you quick access to the media controls. The touchpad is very large and very comfortable to use on the Y530.
The port selection is more than adequate on the Y530 as it offers you three USB ports, VGA, HDMI, LAN, Firewire, modem, headphone/mic, ExpressCard/54 and a 6-in-1 reader.
The sound on this notebook is great, thanks to the very generous offering of the Dolby surround sound speakers.
The Lenova IdeaPad Y530 is a serious laptop that sets itself apart with the integrated Dolby sound system and subwoofer. It has the power and features to help you with your work and entertain you on the weekends.
