Meet Lenovo’s Gaming Sub-Brand, Legion

Lenovo Y520

While we’ve seen several Lenovo laptops spec’d out to handle gaming on-the-go, it never really felt like they catered purely to the gaming market. That all changes today, as Lenovo has just introduced two laptops in the new gaming sub-brand the company is calling, Legion. The two new notebooks in the Legion brand, given the designation Y720 and Y520, are configured to handle the current generation of games with a 7th Generation Intel Core i7 CPU, up to 16GB of RAM, and NVIDIA’s 10 series GPUs; with the Y720 getting the NVIDIA GTX 1060 and the Y520 getting the NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti. Both laptop lids will be emblazoned with brand’s new stylish logo (that bright red Y on the photo above) to set it apart from Lenovo’s other notebook’s in the market. Let’s take a peek at their spec sheets.

The Lenovo Y720 can have a built-in XBox One Controller Receiver

From what we can tell from the product photos, the Y720 and Y520 look pretty much the same on the outside; the telltale difference being the speakers on the bottom of either side of their screens. As far as its internal hardware goes, you’re going to have to shell out more cash if you intend on getting into VR since the Y520’s GTX 1050 Ti isn’t equipped to handle that kind of content.

The Lenovo Y720 is priced at $1399.99 or Php 69,693 and will be available in April, while the Y520 is priced at $899.99 or Php 44,802 and should be hitting store shelves next month.
