At the core of the all-in-one PC is a desktop computer with choices of Intel Core 2 Duo processors, optional ATI Radeon graphics card technology with DirectX 10 support, up to 4GB of DDR3 memory for multitasking and up to 1TB of hard drive space for storage.

The expanded Y series adds new screen sizes to the IdeaPad notebook lineup: the 16-inch Y650, the 15.6-inch Y550, and the 14-inch Y450. The new Y series notebooks are configurable with up to 500GB of hard drive storage space and up to 4GB of DDR3 memory.

To provide HD entertainment and multimedia experience, the Y series notebooks are equipped with 16:9 format widescreen panels, optional Nvidia GFX graphics for gaming, HD video playback and Dolby Home Theater surround sound.
