The upcoming iteration of Lenovo’s Legion gaming laptop lineup is a 15.6-inch model built with the latest NVIDIA graphics and Intel platforms, and will be available with newer screen options. One notable improvement is that both this version and the 17-inch model will have Dolby Vision HDR software. On the upcoming Lenovo Legion Y540, there will be a full-size keyboard with white backlighting.
You can always expect Legion laptops to be good for gaming, no matter how they are customized. This model will be a less costly alternative to its 17-inch counterpart. If you don’t mind mid-range gaming capabilities, then this one will likely be right for you. Don’t underestimate what it will be capable of, however. It’s a culmination of thousands of hours from engineers and expert craftsmen who have done tons of testing to ensure its durability and quality.
It’s recommended that you opt for the IPS FHD display with 144Hz / 300-nits / 72% color gamut. With its thin bezels, it can pack over 2 million pixels on the near-edge display, on which you can bring your favorite movies and games to live. A cheaper configuration comes with an FHD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution / 250-nits / 60-GHz / 72% color gamut.
