These laptops support VR, Dolby, optional backlit keyboards, FHD IPS resolution and optimised cooling.

It is designed for portability seekers, the Legion Y520 has an aluminum-brushed body and weighs around 2.5 kgs.

The laptop comes with up to 128GB of PCIe SSD storage, ideal for reducing the boot-up time and in-game loading, or 1TB of HDD storage, perfect for storing your entire gaming collection. Gamers can also enjoy hybrid storage, effectively getting the best of both worlds.
This laptop is built from the ground up in an all-metal cover, the Legion Y720 laptop is the world’s first Dolby Atmos Windows based PC bringing an enhanced sense of depth and detail to the overall gaming experience. It makes the game’s world come alive with immersive sound providing amazing precision and realism. With NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, the laptop is the India’s first Oculus certified VR-ready machine. It also comes with Thunderbolt 3, the fastest port available on a PC today to plug and play at lightening speeds. The display is supported up to FHD IPS anti-glare display on the device.

- Gamers can easily customise settings such as audio, active keys, cooling, and network priority. Lenovo Nerve Sense allows them to record highlights for replaying or uploading to streaming sites.
- The devices have been designed with optimised thermal engineering to combat heat even during the most resource-intensive gaming session. The engineered fans and vents are strategically located close to the graphics card and processors to keep hot air moving while the rear-placed thermal vents remove that heat. The Extreme Cooling shortcut within Lenovo Nerve Sense can be used for gaming firefights that require an additional push of cooling.
- As part of the Legion gaming kit, gamers get a Y gaming armoured backpack to enjoy mobile gaming wherever they go. The Y gaming optical mouse and Y gaming stereo headset are also available at an additional cost.
