Lenovo Erazer X700 PC targets the gaming crowd

When we think of hardcore PC gaming, Lenovo isn’t exactly the first manufacturer that comes to mind, but the company is looking to change that. Today Lenovo unveiled its new Erazer X700 gaming PC, and if you’re thinking of entering the PC gaming realm but don’t want to build your own rig, the Erazer X700 might be worthy of your consideration. Most gaming PCs come equipped with truly stellar enthusiast-level hardware, but the Erazer X700 has one feature in particular that sure to turn some heads.

Specifically speaking, we’re talking about Lenovo’s Onekey Overclocking feature. We’ve heard about Onekey before, as it’s a standard feature on many Lenovo machines that lets you create a backup and recover your computer with a simple button press. Onekey has been somewhat revamped for the Erazer X700, as it allows you to overclock your processor without going into the BIOS first. That should prove to be a pretty handy feature for gamers who need to be getting the most juice out of their processor.

Speaking of processors, it seems that you’ll have your choice of Intel’s Core family of CPUs with the Erazer X700, along with dual-graphics support for NVIDIA GeForce or AMD Radeon HD GPUs. Lenovo didn’t say what kind of graphic card will come standard in the Erazer X700, but the company did point to the fact that the X700 comes equipped with a whopping 32GB of RAM. That should be more than enough to make sure your game is running silky smooth.

Add to that support for AMD Eyefinity technology, a liquid cooling system, and the ability to add up to 4TB of storage while the computer is running, and it sounds like we’ve got one beefy gaming PC on our hands. The Erazer X700 will be available starting in June, and models start at $1,499. We imagine that $1,499 price tag applies to the lower end of the spectrum, so if you want your rig to be rocking a Core i7 and a top-of-the-line graphics card, expect to shell out a little more cash.
