For a 17-inch gaming laptop, the Lenovo Y700 (17″) holds up pretty well in our battery tests

y700-17-non-touch-mouse-product-heroGaming laptops are not the first to come to mind when battery life is involved, especially 17-inch notebooks, but it seems that in the last one or two years, things are slowly changing. However, the Lenovo Y700 (17-inch) surprised us with even better battery runtimes than expected. It seems that the notebook inherits the overall good battery performance from its 15-inch sibling with just about the same readings but most importantly, the 17-inch Y700 holds an edge over its competitors in this class.

You can find the notebook’s price and configurations here:

Our Wi-Fi browsing tests indicate around 390 minutes while watching a movie will get you through 356 minutes. That’s mighty impressive and probably the main reason is the fairly big battery capacity – 60Wh. For the record, the direct competitors Acer Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition and ASUS ROG GL752VW hold 52.5Wh and 48Wh units translating into roughly 24% and whopping 47% shorter battery runtimes, respectively. So if you are looking for a 17-inch gaming laptop capable of productivity on-the-go, the Y700 might be the wiser choice.

Of course, all tests were performed with the same settings – Wi-Fi turned on, battery saver mode switched on and screen brightness set to 120 cd/m2.
