Lenovo's box for the Legion Y720 and Y920 look identical, but the Y920's box is much larger. Packaging is great, and the notebook is well protected from the elements.
There aren't many accessories; you get a 230W AC/DC power supply, AC cable, and some manuals. The power adapter is rated 20V at 11.5A, and features a custom charging plug so you can't replace the AC/DC power supply with a generic one.
The top and bottom of the unit are made up of a thin layer of what appears to be brushed aluminum with a plaid-style pattern. Centered on the lid of the notebook is Lenovo's "Y" in red. The underside of the notebook is where you will find intake vents towards the rear of the notebook and a 3W subwoofer at the bottom center of the notebook. Two wide rubber pads at the back of the unit and two smaller square ones sit at the front to ensure the notebook won't slide around on a glass table.
The front edge of the notebook is bare of everything, while the rear of the notebook features both exhaust vents. The left side of the notebook features the DC power jack, DisplayPort, HDMI, 1Gbit Killer LAN, a ThunderBolt 3 type-C port, and two USB 3.0 ports. The right side of the unit features a reset hole, power light indicator, SD card slot, microphone jack, headphone jack, two USB 3.0 ports, and a Kensington lock port.
The Y920 features a full-sized mechanical QWERTY keyboard with number pad; it's backlit with digital RGB LEDs, so you can individually program each key's color. Two JBL 2W speakers sit under the red mesh venting. Around the touchpad area is a slightly raised rubberized coating, and the touchpad features a lit ring around it. The keys are all mechanical, so you hear an audible click and feel tactile feedback once you hit the key, so you know the key was fully pressed. Mechanical keyboards are great for gaming, but some people dislike the noise they make when typing.
There are RGB LEDs built around the speakers, touchpad, and keyboard. There are multiple lighting modes you can access through Lenovo's custom software application. The RGB LEDs are bright in a dim environment, but not that bright when in direct lighting (sunny day).
