Lenovo Y50 gaming laptop: Great performance spoiled by a sub-par display

So close, yet so far
In terms of gaming performance, Lenovo's Y50 is one of the best laptops in its class. It's a great choice if you're looking for a portable gaming rig on a budget. Unfortunately, Lenovo compromised several key components—the keyboard, trackpad, and (most importantly) the display—in order to offer the Y50 at a mid-range price. Hook up a mouse, keyboard, and external display and you'll have a solid gaming machine. If you can't tolerate those compromises, you might have to bite the bullet and spend more money for a competitor's offering.
