Lenovo Legion Y530 Review: An Adult Gaming Laptop with a Dull Display

 

Finally, a gaming laptop for adults. The Lenovo Legion Y530 ($749.99 to start, $949.99 as tested), isn't the most extravagant machine. It doesn't scream “gamer,” but with its Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, it can still play most games at decent settings....

The Lenovo Legion is a gaming laptop with looks for adults, but its soft keyboard and dull display are disappointing.

Lenovo Legion Y530: Shortlist this entry-level gaming laptop

 

While its insides match the competition's, the Y530's unique workstation-like design helps make this budget-friendly gamer one to strongly consider.

The Lenovo Legion Y530's delivers on entry-level gaming performance and has a useful design that makes it as good for travel as it is on a desk hooked up to a monitor, keyboard and mouse.

Display is somewhat dim with dull color. Keyboard might be a little too soft for some. Webcam is below the display.

As entry-level gaming laptops go the Lenovo Legion Y530 offers one of the best mixes of performance and design you're going to find at the moment.

Lenovo Legion Y530

 

Lenovo's Legion Y530 tops today's class of budget gaming laptops with a sleek, distinctive build, alongside solid performance and a full feature set.

Aggressive price. Slim, sturdy build is nice for the money. No garish gamer aesthetic. Super-slim bezels. HD gaming capable. Above-average keyboard.

GTX 1050's performance ceiling with demanding games is limited. Smallish 256GB SSD in this model.

Bottom Line: Lenovo's Legion Y530 tops today's class of budget gaming laptops with a sleek, distinctive build, alongside solid performance and a full feature set.

The Lenovo Legion Y530 is a sleek and slim budget gaming laptop with enough graphics power to play demanding games on lower settings.

Sleek, stylish design; Thin bezels; Strong overall performance; Solid port selection; Good value

Lenovo Legion Y530 (i7-8750H, GTX1060) Laptop Review

 

Makes a lot of wind. The Lenovo Legion Y530 does not waste much time with questions about the design, but delivers a lot of performance for an affordable price instead. After the review of the GTX 1050 Ti SKU, we now have a look at the model with the...

very high system performance ; very high gaming performance ; good cooling solution ; good maintenance options ; robust chassis
