Good gaming extras without the budget-busting price

 

If you like keyboard macros and lights -- lots and lots of lights -- the Y730 might be worth the premium over the entry-level Legion Y530.

The Lenovo Legion Y730 is a notch above other entry-level gaming laptops with its programmable per-key RGB lighting for the keyboard, custom macro keys and nice-looking full HD display. Despite the gaming extras, it wouldn't look out of place at the...

Graphics options tap out with an upper entry-level Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. Shifted keyboard layout takes some adjustment. Webcam is below the display. Battery life is short against competing models.

Lenovo steps up the build quality and game-oriented features for the Legion Y730 while keeping its price reasonable for an entry-level gaming laptop. If graphics performance is your priority, though, you'll want to keep looking.

Lenovo Legion Y730

 

The Lenovo Legion Y730 is a well-built gaming laptop with reasonable performance, but its graphics capability leaves a bit to be desired considering the price.

Slim all-aluminum build with a sleek aesthetic. Super-thin bezels. Lots of storage. Customizable per-key backlighting.

Maxes out at a GTX 1050 Ti. Expensive for graphics capability. Short battery life.

Bottom Line: The Lenovo Legion Y730 is a well-built gaming laptop with reasonable performance, but its graphics capability leaves a bit to be desired considering the price.

Lenovo Legion Y730 (15-inch)

 

The Lenovo Legion Y730 brings a premium design and display to entry-level gaming.

Premium, understated design; Bright, vivacious display; Solid gaming and overall performance

A tad expensive; Below-average battery life; Awkwardly placed webcam

Lenovo Legion Y730-15ICH (i5-8300H, GTX 1050 Ti) Laptop Review

 

Flagship features, mainstream price. The Legion Y730 is the higher-end alternative to the Legion Y530 and legion Y7000 with flagship-like features including per-key RGB lighting, Thunderbolt 3, and dedicated Macro keys. It's just too bad that current...

relatively cool core temperatures when gaming ; narrow bezels on three sides of the screen ; very strong CPU Turbo Boost sustainability ; quiet fans when under low-medium loads ; quiet keys and mouse buttons ; per-key RGB lighting ; crisp matte display...

slow black-white response times; more ghosting ; relatively large footprint for the size class ; removing M.2 drive may void warranty ; limited to GTX 1050 Ti GPU only ; no 120/144 Hz display options ; poor webcam positioning ; small trackpad ; no...

The Legion Y730 is in a precarious position. It's the thinner, lighter, and higher-end version of the Legion Y530 with more bells and whistles like LED lights, aluminum surfaces, and Thunderbolt 3, but it lacks the GeForce GTX 1060 GPU option found on...

Lenovo Legion Y730 review

 

The Legion wants more members

Excellent starting price ; Gorgeous design ; Fantastic full keyboard ; 144Hz G-Sync display

Just one graphics option ; Webcam beneath screen

This brand new version of the Legion laptop brings it into a whole new light, one that we appreciate here much more than the extreme gamer aesthetic of old. Throw in some serious innards and a decent price, and color us psyched for a full review.
