Lenovo Legion Y520 Tower

 

Affordable, compact, and upgradeable, the Lenovo Legion Y520 Tower is a solid desktop for HD gaming on a budget, even if its performance is limited.

Reasonably priced. Compact. Upgradeable. Delivers 60fps HD gaming.

Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM hamper performance.

Bottom Line: Affordable, compact, and upgradeable, the Lenovo Legion Y520 Tower is a solid desktop for HD gaming on a budget, even if its performance is limited.

Lenovo Legion Y520 Tower Review: Upgrade-Friendly Gaming Value

 

The Lenovo Legion Y520 is a simple pre-built machine for midlevel gaming, and when configured correctly, it can handle VR. It has plenty of room for upgrading, and, thankfully, Lenovo didn't weight this machine down with bloatware.

Lots of room to upgrade ; Light on bloatware

Slow transfer speeds

The Lenovo Legion Y520 is a pre-built midlevel gaming PC with plenty of room for upgrading.

Lenovo Legion Y520-15 Gaming Laptop

 

Lenovo perhaps isn't the first name which comes to mind when considering gaming laptops. But the company is seeking its own path, and a mix of bang for buck and design attention may help in revealing it. The Legion Y520-15 is one of its current...

CPU: 2.3GHz Intel Core i7-7700HQ Memory: 8GB 2,400MHz DDR4 Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050M 4GB Sound: On-board Screen size: 15.6in 1,920 x 1,080 IPS Hard disk: Samsung 128GB PM961 M.2 SSD, 1TB HDD Weight: 2.5kg Ports: 3 x USB 3, 1 x USB 3.1 Type-C,...

We like the look of the Legion Y520-15. Physically, rather than on paper and in practice, because we don’t believe that the selection of parts delivers an overall experience best for gaming.

Lenovo Legion (Y520) Laptop Review

 

This gaming laptop is a good value for young gamers—but it isn't perfect

Lenovo Legion Y520

 

Lenovo's got their mojo back with the Y520: it has competitive specs for the price, an NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti, a nice slim design and it's understated looking. The laptop starts at $850, and that gets you an Intel 7th generation Kaby Lake Core i5-7300HQ...

Lenovo Legion Y520 gaming laptop review: A consistent performer at a great price

 

Established gaming brands already sell capable gaming laptops. What is Lenovo offering that can set it apart? That's exactly what I intend to find out.

Of the gaming laptops I’ve tested this year, I think the Legion Y520 is my favourite. It’s a boring design and thermal throttling is a minor issue. However, it’s built just as well as the competition, performs fractionally better in gaming tasks and...

LENOVO Legion Y520 15.6" Gaming Laptop - Black & Gold

 

It’s cpu makes for a rapid load up. Performance is great. The graphics are amazing. Perfect for the causal gamer up to the semi serious gamer.

Battery dies quickly so isn’t ideal for using in the go

LENOVO Legion Y520 15.6" Gaming Laptop - Black & Gold

 

Good performance. Great keyboard. Efficient and quiet cooling system.

Plastic case marks very easily. So-so speakers (poor bass). Odd numeric pad.
