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: 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 Review and Ratings

 

Lenovo gives its winning Legion Y520 gaming rig a beefed-up brother with GeForce GTX 1060 graphics and awe-inspiring audio.

Faultless 1080p gaming performance ; Epic audio ; Thunderbolt 3 port ; Xbox One wireless controller support

Skimpy 128GB SSD ; Screen could be brighter ; No SD card slot

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...

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...

All-aluminum, thin and robust chassis;Good gaming-centric keyboard and nice touchpad;A broad range of connectivity options including USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 support;Good cooling system;Support for Wireless Xbox controller;Excellent sound quality...

Subpar display quality with low contrast, narrow sRGB coverage and not enough maximum brightness;The panel uses PWM from 0 to 99% brightness (our Health-Guard profile eliminates this issue);A bit heavy for a 15-incher;No G-Sync support on the built-in...
