Gaming laptops are a rather specific niche of devices that have never been and will not be massive, although there is a certain stable demand for them and always will be. One of the most realistic and logical usage scenarios is constant moving from place to place and the need for a powerful but transportable computer. Yes, up to modern ultrabooks they do not hold out in mobility, but it’s clearly more convenient than carrying a system monitor with a monitor. Of course, there are monsters like Acer Predator 21 X, but there are also quite transportable models of reasonable size with impressive performance, like today’s hero of the review, “Legionnaire” Lenovo Legion Y720.
Lenovo Legion Y720 is a gaming laptop with 15.6-inch IPS display, a seventh generation Intel Core processor, 16 GB of RAM, a powerful discrete graphics card Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 and a fast drive.
Lenovo earlier this year introduced its new gamer line of Legion notebooks, which included two models: the Y520 and the Y720. Despite the digital designations, both models are equipped with 15.6-inch screens. We have a more advanced model Y720 with a video card nVidia GeForce GTX 1060 for 6 GB GDDR5, inside – new processors Intel Kaby Lake, in particular i5-7300HQ and i7-7700HQ plus DDR4 RAM up to 16 GB. At us on a review – just the configuration with top i7-7700HQ and 16 GB of RAM. As drives, a very fast PCI-Express SSD is installed on 1 TB (not sure what exactly this configuration will be available for us) and HDD for 1 TB. The screen is IPS with a resolution of 1920×1080. The laptop is equipped with two speakers and a subwoofer designed by JBL and supports Dolby Atmos technology (it is claimed that this is the world’s first laptop Dolby Atmos).
