Introduction

Lenovo Legion Y720 (Kaby Lake) Gaming Laptop Review 01 | TweakTown.com

It's been a while since I reviewed a gaming notebook, and that's mainly because the market was a bit over saturated with Skylake and Maxwell based mobile parts. More recently Kaby Lake and Pascal based mobile parts have become more prevalent, and so has the number of high-performance gaming laptops that are almost twice as light and thin as their previous generation counterparts.

Today we look at one of Lenovo's Legion series notebooks, which are designed to cater to gamers and pretty much any mainstream user who might make use of a discrete graphics card in a notebook.

The Legion Y720 uses a 15.6" display, which makes it much more portable than 17" notebooks, and now we are going to take a look.
