Lenovo just announced a bunch of new laptops, ranging from IdeaPads to gaming systems. The company’s latest gaming laptop is the Lenovo Legion Y920 and it promises to be a great VR-ready system. However, it comes at a high price, so there is a chance it won’t become as popular as Lenovo expects it to. After all, a $2,700 price tag could get gamers other laptops that are even more impressive than the Lenovo Legion Y920. Then again, it comes with a GTX 1070 graphics card, which is still an expensive feature. However, it might worth every cent gamers pay extra for it.
The Lenovo Legion Y920 good-looking device, but it is quite a hefty one. It weighs 10.1 pounds, so it definitely isn’t an ultra-portable laptop. However, it’s almost as powerful as a desktop, and in comparison with that, it is easier to carry around. Even though it is made from plastic, the lid actually looks a lot like metal, turning it into a more premium-looking device. Both the keyboard and the palm rest come with a rubbery coating. Thanks to this, they are more comfortable to use. Speaking of the keyboard, it is one of the most interesting features of the Lenovo Legion Y920.
It is a mechanical keyboard, and every key is individually backlit. This means that users can change the color of any key as they wish. This way, users will be able to highlight the keys they need most. Even if you don’t intend to highlight particular keys for exact purposes, the backlit keyboard will offer a nice light show. The mechanical keyboard is extremely responsive, so it will be a delight using it. Let’s face it, this is a very important feature of a gaming laptop as it can influence playing games a lot. Also, gamers have a special button that will enable them to trigger a factory overclock.
Naturally, what’s under the hood is what turns this laptop into a $2,700 device. The 17-inch Lenovo Legion Y920 comes with either an i7-7820HK CPU or an i7-7700HQ processor and it includes 16GB of RAM. However, the GPU of the laptop is its best feature. The Legion Y920 sports an 8GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card which makes it compatible wit a great variety of VR experiences. The gaming experience will be just great with this GPU. Of course, it can cause the laptop to overheat, but we hope the cooler will be efficient enough to stop it from ruining the user experience.
Thankfully, the Lenovo Legion Y920 also comes with a great audio system, including two 2W JBL speakers and a 3W subwoofer. It also features Dolby Home Theatre Audio. The resulting sound will not only be loud, it will also be clear. This will turn gaming into a real pleasure. It is also great for watching movies and listen to music. Users will be able to connect a bunch of gadgets to the Lenovo Legion Y920. It features a full-size HDMI, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt, four USB 3.0 Type-A ports, an SD card reader, and gigabit ethernet.
Overall, the Lenovo Legion Y920 promises to be a great gaming laptop. It has a bunch of powerful features that are all meant to ensure a magnificent gaming experience. Its price, however, is quite high, which is unusual for a Lenovo device. The laptop will become available for purchase in June for $2,700.
