Though the Centrino 2 platform was launched in August 2008, it’s not until
recently that we see notebook manufacturers flowing in products based on it. The
Ideapad Y430 from Lenovo is one such product. Primarily an entertainment
notebook, it has a good set of features and runs on a powerful engine. It has a
trendy dual color design and on paper is supposed to be one of the best
notebooks available. In addition to being an attention grabber, the notebook is
slim and feels sturdy.

The ergonomically designed keyboard and touchpad are quite comfortable to use
and leave a lot of space to rest your palms on. In true Lenovo style, One touch
back up key is also present for easy backups. Other features include a webcam,
DVD writer and wireless ‘N’ compatibility. The notebook has a 2.4GHz processor
coupled with 2GB RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GPU for enhanced video
capabilities.

We put the notebook to our regular set of benchmarks and in PC Mark 05 it
gave a score of 4033 which is impressive. In Battery Mark 04, the machine just
lived for 2 hours which is nothing great, given that the Centrino 2 is a power
efficient platform. And a score of 1677 in 3D Mark 06 means the notebook can
deliver adequate performance in graphic intensive applications.
