Launched earlier this year, Lenovo‘s new line of affordable gaming laptops have finally landed in Malaysia.
The two new models, the Lenovo Legion Y520 and Y720 is Lenovo’s latest stab at gaming notebooks, under the Legion line.
The Legion Y520 comes in not one but four configurations (and price points) while the enthusiast-oriented Y720 comes VR ready.
First up is the Lenovo Legion Y750, which is geared towards the mass market while still giving you the power your need for 1080p gaming. Under the hood you will find a 7th Gen Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake with up to 8GB RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB GDDR5 memory. The display is a relatively large 15.6 inch 1080p IPS display and you get the option of up to 256GB SSD.
The device comes in four flavours and pricepoints:
- RM3,299 — Intel Core i7-7300 HQ, 4GB DDR4, GTX 1050 2GB, 1TB HDD (5400 rpm)
- RM4,219 — Intel Core i7-7700HQ, 4GB DDR4, GTX 1050 4GB, 1TB HDD (5400 rpm)
- RM4,919 — Intel Core i7-7700HQ, 4GB DDR4, GTX 1050 Ti 4GB, 128GB M.2 PCIe SSD, 1TB HDD (5200 rpm)
- RM5,419 — Intel Core i7-7700HQ, 8GB DDR4, GTX 1050 Ti 4GB, 256GB M.2 PCIe SSD, 2TB HDD (5400 rpm)
Next, we have the Lenovo Legion Y720 which is more for the enthusiast gamer. It’s quite similar to the Legion Y720 in terms of processor and RAM, but it will have an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB DDR5 memory and a 1TB HDD. As far as the display is concerned, it also will come in with a 15.6 inch 1080p IPS screen, but no 4K variant for now. It’s also the first laptop to get Dolby Atmos certification.
Lenovo has plans to bring in more variants for this model in the near future, but if you want to snag this one, it’ll hit the market at the end of this month and set you back RM6,099.
