Lenovo's new Legion gaming laptops are ready for VR and more


Inspired by Roman armies (for real), these new gaming laptops offer option 4K and even a built-in Xbox gamepad receiver.

Lenovo Legion Y720


The Lenovo Legion Y720 has rich audio and works with any wireless Xbox One controller, but it suffers from a dim display and mixed performance.

Awesome speakers; Xbox wireless controller adapter built in; Decent battery life

Ugly; Dim display; Mixed productivity performance and slow SSD

Lenovo Legion Y720 Review


As someone who primarily games on PC, my advice to anyone who's looking to get into PC gaming is usually going to be to build their own. Up until recently, I would have written that my advice would be to always go the custom build route, but thanks to...

GTX 1060 graphics and Core i5/Core i7 make for a powerful machine ; Design isn't overwhelming ; Full-size keyboard is a pleasure to use

Speakers, as always, don't offer full sound with weak bass ; Outer shell attracts fingerprints easily ; Relatively unexciting despite solid internals

Lenovo Legion Y720 Review


The Lenovo Legion Y720 offers a solid mix between performance and price, but the dim display detracts from this otherwise attractive gaming notebook.

Lenovo Legion Y720 (7700HQ, Full-HD, GTX 1060) Laptop Review


A convincing concept. The equation Lenovo uses for describing their new gaming laptop does appear to make sense: power + portability = perfection. The perfection might not be absolute - but Lenovo does show that they know what a true gaming notebook is...

Leistungsbereitschaft ; PCIe-SSD ; Akkulaufzeit ; Hitzeentwicklung ; Geräuschentwicklung

Gehäuse äußerst anfällig für Fingerabdrucke ; Hohes Gewicht ; Eingeschränkte Leistung im Akku-Betrieb ; Kein SD-Kartenslot

Lenovo succeeded with their new Legion Y720 - the gaming laptop is certainly a worthy competitor. The build quality is high and both the design as well as the color scheme cater to the target audience. The only major drawback are the sensitive surface...

Lenovo Legion Y720 review: Gaming PC that can adjust to most any budget


So you want to play some games on your PC but don't want to spend an arm and a leg on your system. Lenovo feels your pain and offers several very serviceable models to fit your gaming needs. The Lenovo Legion Y720 desktop system offers good specs at a...

Good performance ; Quality components with room to upgrade ; Design isn't too over the top ; Good starting price with current e-coupons

Included keyboard and mouse are kind of afterthoughts

Just because you want to be able to play some games on your PC doesn’t mean you have to have the newest and most impressive hardware. Save yourself a few bucks and a machine like the Lenovo Legion Y720 desktop should keep you happy for years to come.

Lenovo Legion Y720 review: A great mid-high tier gaming laptop


Our Lenovo Legion Y720 review finds out if the pricing matches the specs and performance you're getting from one of the latest gaming laptops from the company.

Aluminium finish design ; UHD anti-glare display ; Windows 10 software ; Great performance

Battery life ; Fingerprint magnet

For the specs and price you’re getting in the Y720, it’s hard to pass up. This gaming laptop was able to keep up with the games I played, so I don’t foresee anyone else having issues depending on what games you play.

Lenovo Legion Y720 Review: A Decent Road-Ready Gaming PC


If you're a desktop-PC gamer without a lot of space, the Lenovo Legion Y720 Cube is in your wheelhouse. This rig is easy to move and will fit just about anywhere. But the entry-level model is lacking in power, and you'll need to pay more for VR...

Portable design ; Easily upgradable

Not a lot of power in entry level model

Get the Lenovo Legion Y720 Cube if you prioritize space savings over gaming performance.

Lenovo Legion Y720 Tower Review: A Dependable, No-Frills Gaming PC


The Lenovo Legion Y720 Tower is a dependable machine with a GTX 1070 and a chassis that's easy to open and upgrade. And if you want it in either an Intel or AMD configuration, there are plenty of options for you.

Easy to upgrade ; Many available configurations ; Helpful software

Performance not as strong as competitors

The Lenovo Legion Y720 Tower is easy to upgrade and comes with either AMD or Intel configurations.

Lenovo Legion Y720-15 – Review


Previously, we had a look at the Lenovo Legion Y520. This time it's the bigger and bolder Legion Y720-15. We weren't too impressed with the performance delivered, and more on that later. Here's hoping our experience with the Y720-15 is a more enjoyable...

Undoubtedly, if you were considering Lenovo for a gaming laptop this would be in the running. Understandably too, given the Kaby Lake i7-7700HQ and a GTX 1060 6GB. The specifications on offer here are those of a system which should be a shoe-in for...
