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.
The Legion Y720 uses the i7-7700HQ 4C/8T CPU with a 2.8GHz base and 3.8GHz Turbo Boost clock. The notebook uses a 15.6" FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS Anti-Glare LED Backlit display, a GTX 1060 6G GDDR5, 16GB (2x8GB) of DDR4, a 128GB M.2 SSD, a 1TB HDD, Realtek Wired LAN, and Intel wireless LAN (wireless AC 8625). The notebooks starts at 7.05lbs and is 14.96" x 10.9" x 1.14" (L x W x H). It uses an integrated 4-cell 60Wh battery.
The Legion Y720 starts at $1,363.99; our configuration is $1649.99.
