Lenovo Legion Y530: Shortlist this entry-level gaming laptop

 

While its insides match the competition's, the Y530's unique workstation-like design helps make this budget-friendly gamer one to strongly consider.

The Lenovo Legion Y530's delivers on entry-level gaming performance and has a useful design that makes it as good for travel as it is on a desk hooked up to a monitor, keyboard and mouse.

Display is somewhat dim with dull color. Keyboard might be a little too soft for some. Webcam is below the display.

As entry-level gaming laptops go the Lenovo Legion Y530 offers one of the best mixes of performance and design you're going to find at the moment.

Lenovo Legion Y530

 

Lenovo's Legion Y530 tops today's class of budget gaming laptops with a sleek, distinctive build, alongside solid performance and a full feature set.

Aggressive price. Slim, sturdy build is nice for the money. No garish gamer aesthetic. Super-slim bezels. HD gaming capable. Above-average keyboard.

GTX 1050's performance ceiling with demanding games is limited. Smallish 256GB SSD in this model.

Bottom Line: Lenovo's Legion Y530 tops today's class of budget gaming laptops with a sleek, distinctive build, alongside solid performance and a full feature set.

Lenovo Legion Y530 (i7-8750H, GTX1060) Laptop Review

Lenovo Legion Y530 review: Affordable but no-frills gaming laptop

 

The Lenovo Legion might not be as fancy as some gaming laptops we've tested, but that doesn't mean it should be ignored. Price is its biggest sell.

Understated but stylish design ; High refresh rate screen for the money ; Plenty of output options ; Reasonably quiet under standard use

Gets uncomfortably hot when gaming on the lap ; Performance is average ; Specification options are limited ; Weird numpad layout

The Lenovo Legion might not be as fancy as some gaming laptops we've tested, but that doesn't mean it should be ignored.
