From their recent announcements, it is evident that Lenovo is ready to compete with every big brand in the world in their respective territories.
The Lenovo ideaCenter Y900 is a rugged looking gaming PC which is designed to directly compete with Asus ROG series and other top manufacturers who rule the roost. Satisfying a PC gamer with a pre-built PC is impossible because they can easily swap the same parts from NewEgg and build their own for at least $200 less or even more.
However, Lenovo is clear about what they want and have eliminated some of the mistakes that manufacturers continue to make in the gaming PC sector. The new Y900 and Y700 is fully customizable with overclocking features out of the box. It also supports dual graphics card, for both Nvidia and AMD. The chassis is easy to remove and work with, because people love to tinker with their computers from time to time.
On the specifications front, the Y900 is a beast powered by an i7 K processor which is fully overclockable combined with an Nvidia GTX 980 graphics card and 64 GB of DDR4 RAM. Buyers can go for an SSD or SSHD option, while DVD or Bluray disc drive is completely optional. There are so many ports on the Lenovo Gaming PC Y900 including a 6 audio jack with SPDIF 7.1 surround support, four USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0, LAN and PS/1 combo port.

The pricing will go high based on the customization you do when placing the order. For the asking price, it is easy to build a more powerful gaming system on your own with a GTX 980 ti graphics card but this one is geared towards people who love brand support and don’t have to worry about placing the processor on the motherboard socket on their own.
