Lenovo IdeaPad Y900 Review: surprising power in a big package

Lenovo IdeaPad Y900 Review: surprising power in a big package

I've always found it difficult to wrap my head around gaming laptops, and when I first opened the Lenovo IdeaPad Y900 notebook, I didn't think my feelings were going to change. I found myself almost immediately wondering why I would use such a bulky laptop when I have my own gaming desktop at home. Still, there's more to a computer than its size, and once I really dug in and got to playing around with it, there were a few things that caught me by surprise. The question then was whether the IdeaPad Y900 was enough to change my opinion on gaming laptops, or if I'd end the review process with the same opinions I had at the start.

Microsoft, Lenovo accused of blocking Linux on “Signature Edition” PCs

Microsoft, Lenovo accused of blocking Linux on “Signature Edition” PCs

Laptops these days are getting more powerful, thinner, and, like the Lenovo Yoga Book, more interesting. While most of these were made with running Windows in mind, some consumers prefer to have the final say on what OS to use, which usually means Linux (or Chrome OS sometimes). But much to their dismay, some buyers of the Lenovo Yoga 900, 910S, and 710S have found out that they can’t do so, supposedly because of an agreement between Microsoft and OEMs like Lenovo to prevent other operating systems like Linux to be installed on Signature Edition PCs like those models. However, reality isn’t as simple as that may sound.
