Lenovo Legion is gearing up to take over 2019 with their signature Y-series laptops, all enhanced with the latest processors and graphics cards. Legion has been making waves in the Asia Pacific region, providing gamers with outstanding equipment that does not compromise on build quality. It may not be the slimmest not the lightest, but you can definitely bet that these laptops were built to last and will answer almost all of your gaming needs.
First up on the list is their flagship Y740, with more than enough power to enjoy games at maximum settings with its NVIDIA RTX 2060 graphics card with 6GB VRAM, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD storage, and Intel Core i7-9750H processor. Did the 1 TB SSD storage catch your eye? Well to make things sweeter, these are NVMe SSD’s and to put things simply, it’s going to give you blazing fast load time to run your favorite games and applications faster. Next best thing? All Y740 and Y540 variants will be equipped with these SSD’s!
Lenovo has also partnered with Corsair to bring you a super good keyboard that is built for the challenges of gaming. Supported by the Corsair iCue software and over a million colors to choose from, style your Y740 to suit to mood and personality.
The screen is also a marvel to look at, with a 6.7mm thin bezel design, G-Sync capable with up to 2.4x refresh rate, 144hz, and up to 500 nits of brightness, you’ll probably spend a lot of time just looking at how lovely the graphics will be when displayed here. Oh and did we mention it is also Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos Audio capable? The Y740 will be available for P119,995.
The Y540, while a model below the 740, is no slouch either. This line is for the core gamers and will come in 3 variants:

Sold? I haven’t even told you the best part yet. As a bonus for buyers, Lenovo is giving ALL of its latest gaming and Legion notebooks 2-Year Premium Care out of the box support. What does this mean exactly? Well, apart from being the ONLY retailer to provide a 2 year premium care onsite warranty, you also get 24/7 support from the company’s senior tech resources, on-site warranty wherein Lenovo’s staff will go directly to the customer’s location for troubleshooting, and Zero Tolerance to Dead Pixel service, an offering that repairs displays even if it has only a single dead pixel. Lenovo Legion is committed to providing its customers with top notch customer support and this 2 year offering is really the icing on the cake.
If you’ve been saving up for a gaming laptop for a while now and don’t know what to get, save up a bit more and head on over to your nearest Legion retailer or over at the Legion Concept Store because these bad boys are going to drop sometime late June / early July.
