Review of the Lenovo Legion Y740 gaming laptop: nice and mature design, a great SUV

As a player, although I'm not a teenager, I tend to get away from laptops that are too flashy. I want a stealthy beast, one that is powerful enough for my needs, but not so flashy that I want to tear my eyes out every time I see all that RGB. That's where the Lenovo Legion Y740 comes into play.

When it comes to gaming laptops, it is discreetly positive and, in fact, quite elegant and refined in its design.

The exterior is all black, but unlike the Y530 we checked last year, it doesn't seem cheap. RGB lighting is also done with good taste and is not very loud. The design is a bit unusual since the hinge is placed a little ahead of the back. Additional real estate admits additional refrigeration.

The Lenovo Legion Y740 is more discreet than most gaming laptops.

The specifications are excellent for the price. You get an Intel Core i7-9760H, Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU, 16 GB of RAM, 1 TB of SSD storage and a 15.6-inch FHD screen that can reach 144 Hz. For a machine designed to play 1080p, this is ideal.

I like the fact that most of the ports are in the back. Ethernet and HDMI are not ports that we need to access often, and since they are on the back, they do not interfere with the placement of the hands when playing.

The only USB 3.1 Gen 2 port on the side is enough for a mouse, and the headphone jack is also conveniently located. There is even Thunderbolt 3, if you need it.

But enough about the specs, what is it like to play?

In a word: great

I spent a few weeks with the device and spent dozens of hours playing everything from subway exodus to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – the new – and Borderlands 3 In the unit I also recorded most of the game (hoping to become a famous YouTuber of games at some point, but that's a story for another time).

The laptop handled everything except Subway in the maximum configuration, and do not stutter once while playing. subway exodus It is a very heavy game that puts players like 2080 on their knees, so don't hold it against the Legin.

While a lot of heat is generated, it dissipates quickly.
