Lenovo Legion Y720 review

 

Leading the next wave of virtual reality

Refined, thinner styling ; Affordable starting price ; Upscaling for VR functionality

Plastic-y trackpad ; Display renders flat colors

Sporting sharp looks and a unique focus on virtual reality experiences, the Lenovo Legion Y720 is a very alluring mid-range gaming laptop.

Lenovo Legion Y720 review: A big-brand enthusiast PC

 

The Legion looks the part, but doesn't have the balanced spec to match the very best or cope with 4K gaming

Looks the part ; DVD writer a nice inclusion

Noisy when under stress ; Excess CPU power, but lacks matching GPU performance

The problem for the Y720 is that it falls between two stools. In the past six months, we've seen sub-£900 PCs that deliver better gaming performance than the Lenovo, even if they didn’t have the eight-core Ryzen 7 CPU. And while the Intel versions...

If you want decent graphics performance in a gaming notebook, the Lenovo Legion Y720 will provide that at an attractive price.

Lenovo's new Legion gaming laptops are ready for VR and more

 

Inspired by Roman armies (for real), these new gaming laptops offer option 4K and even a built-in Xbox gamepad receiver.

Lenovo Legion Y720

 

The Lenovo Legion Y720 has rich audio and works with any wireless Xbox One controller, but it suffers from a dim display and mixed performance.

Awesome speakers; Xbox wireless controller adapter built in; Decent battery life

Ugly; Dim display; Mixed productivity performance and slow SSD

Lenovo Legion Y720 Review

 

As someone who primarily games on PC, my advice to anyone who's looking to get into PC gaming is usually going to be to build their own. Up until recently, I would have written that my advice would be to always go the custom build route, but thanks to...

GTX 1060 graphics and Core i5/Core i7 make for a powerful machine ; Design isn't overwhelming ; Full-size keyboard is a pleasure to use

Speakers, as always, don't offer full sound with weak bass ; Outer shell attracts fingerprints easily ; Relatively unexciting despite solid internals

Lenovo Legion Y720 Review

 

The Lenovo Legion Y720 offers a solid mix between performance and price, but the dim display detracts from this otherwise attractive gaming notebook.

Lenovo Legion Y720 (7700HQ, Full-HD, GTX 1060) Laptop Review

 

A convincing concept. The equation Lenovo uses for describing their new gaming laptop does appear to make sense: power + portability = perfection. The perfection might not be absolute - but Lenovo does show that they know what a true gaming notebook is...

Leistungsbereitschaft ; PCIe-SSD ; Akkulaufzeit ; Hitzeentwicklung ; Geräuschentwicklung

Gehäuse äußerst anfällig für Fingerabdrucke ; Hohes Gewicht ; Eingeschränkte Leistung im Akku-Betrieb ; Kein SD-Kartenslot

Lenovo succeeded with their new Legion Y720 - the gaming laptop is certainly a worthy competitor. The build quality is high and both the design as well as the color scheme cater to the target audience. The only major drawback are the sensitive surface...

Lenovo Legion Y720 Review: A Decent Road-Ready Gaming PC

 

If you're a desktop-PC gamer without a lot of space, the Lenovo Legion Y720 Cube is in your wheelhouse. This rig is easy to move and will fit just about anywhere. But the entry-level model is lacking in power, and you'll need to pay more for VR...

Portable design ; Easily upgradable

Not a lot of power in entry level model

Get the Lenovo Legion Y720 Cube if you prioritize space savings over gaming performance.

Lenovo Legion Y720 Tower Review: A Dependable, No-Frills Gaming PC
