Lenovo Gaming Notebooks: A Good Buy?Damien Moye
Computer maker Lenovo starts 2017 by launching new machines. But these machines are geared toward the gaming community. I’m sure that’s good news for many of you in the IT support community. So Let’s look at Lenovo gaming notebooks: a good buy?
They call these Lenovo gaming notebooks Legion Y520 and Legion Y720. Both cater to gaming community, but Legion Y720 is for the hardcore game players. It has a 15-inch FHS IDS display. You can also choose the higher resolution 4K IPS. In addition to that, it had Dolby Atmos sound. That means your sound effects are going to be a blast! It comes with Nvidia’s GeForceGTX 1060 GPU to accommodate VR systems. This Lenovo gaming notebook can handle four controllers and players at once. Furthermore, it has 16 GB of Ram, three USB 3.0 ports, and an audio jack. It’s battery can go five hours of battery life without a charger.
Then there’s the other Lenovo gaming notebook, the Legion Y520. They made this one for casual gamers. The Y520 has fewer features and is very to Dell Inspiron 15 7000. The Y520 glows only in red. Furthermore, it has only one USB Type C port. You can’t have VR features like you can the Y720. But this Lenovo gaming notebook is cheaper. Then again, it has less. These Lenovo gaming notebooks aren’t the only new toys they have to offer. Lenovo is getting into the smart home business.
They call this device the Lenovo Smart Assistance. It will run you $129. But what about the Lenovo gaming notebooks? The Legion Y720 will be available in April 2017 and will cost you around $1,400. The Legion 520 will be available in February 2017 and will cost you around $900. But we know so little about the Y520. In fact, we know so little that it might be better to save up and get the Y720. Obviously, it gives you more. I know it’s for experience gamers. But I think the Y720 could be a great learning tool for others. Oh, if you ever need a screen replacement for those notebooks, we can do that. We also a wonderful record in laptops fixed. Don’t mean to toot our own horn, but there you go. Will you be one of these Lenovo gaming notebooks?
