Lenovo has taken the wraps of its latest gaming laptop, known as the Y70 Touch. The machine is thin for the category and packs an expansive 17.3-inch touch screen. As with many gaming laptops, available configurations vary significantly, but the higher-end options offer a lot of portable power, providing your wallet can handle it.
Sporting a design that's a little less bold than some gaming laptops, Lenovo’s first 17.3-inch touchscreen model has a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 and some powerful graphics on board in the form of an Nvidia GTX-860M 4G DDR5 card.

The system will be available with a range of different specs, and can be configured up to an Intel Core i7 processor with 512 GB SSD storage. This being a gaming laptop, there’s also the usual bevy of extra goodies on board, including a backlit keyboard and JBL speakers.
At just 25.9 mm (1 in), it's not as thin as some gaming laptops we’ve seen in recent years, but its a lot thinner than most 17-inch systems.
The Y70 Touch will launch in September with prices starting at US$1,389.
