Lenovo Launches New Legion Gaming Laptops

If you happen to fall into the category of people who find most gaming laptops garish with their flashing LEDs and chunky designs, Lenovo has something to appease you.

Its new Legion laptops come with comparatively humbler designs, which will make you feel at home even in business environments.

Y730, the more high-end of the two, comes with a choice of either 15.6 or 17-inch display panels. Even in the latter configuration, the scales are tipped at just 6.4 pounds, which shows the design improvements. Base models start at 1080p with 300 nits of brightness, and 144Hz panels are optional.

Under the hood, you get a choice of the new Core i5 and Core i7 Coffee Lake processors, with up to 32 GB of RAM and a choice of either GTX 1050 Ti or GTX 1050 graphics. Audio needs are handled by Dolby Atmos speakers and Sound Radar.

The Y530 is built from more humbler materials. It only has a sole 15-inch version with 1080p resolution on the base model with 250 nits of peak brightness.

Under the hood, the RAM and processor options are largely similar, though, the GPU option tops at GTX 1050. Pricing starts at a relatively more affordable $930.

The Y7000 is the same as Y530 in terms of specifications, but it has an aluminum top and the logo on the back lights up. It also costs $30 more than Y530 and will be available for international buyers.
