Lenovo Legion Y720-15IKB

“Lenovo has never been a big name in gaming, but it’s keen to change this with its new range of ‘Legion’ gaming laptops” (page TrustedReviews). With the sharp looks and a unique focus on virtual reality experiences, page TechRadar considered the Lenovo Legion Y720 a very alluring mid-range gaming laptop. Although Lenovo’s reputation is not for gaming laptops, they made real efforts on the Legion Y20. For instance, the IPS panel of this laptop is much better: the Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card is so powerful, or even the sound is extremely exceptional with Dolby Atmos. Not yet, the most amazing for every gamer, as an exciting statement from page TrustedReviews, is the built-in support for wireless Xbox One controllers which could help us connect the gamepad without any dongles. Is it interesting enough? Let’s find out the pros and cons of this laptop.

Design

“Take one look at the Legion and you know it’s a gaming laptop.”, said page Stuff.tv, “Those bright LED lights, colossal display, and prominent speaker grilles are anything but subtle”. Yet, following the previous design concept of the Y-series gaming laptops while carrying some similarities from the Y520, according to page LaptopMedia, the Legion Y720 finally looks like a complete product with very little or even unnoticeable design flaws. Page TechRadar evaluated that this notebook retained much of the design of its predecessor with an all black and red color scheme: “There are some slight differences with the Legion Y720 being slightly thinner and sharper”. This page also added that the Legion 720 also adopted many of its design cues from Lenovo’s largest gaming laptop ever - the IdeaPad Y900, including the central hinge and an optional four-zone RGB keyboard. As a comment on page TrustedReviews, the Legion Y720’s design is pleasant but pretty safe: “It has all the staples of gaming laptop design, such as RGB lighting, and angular lines to give the Y720 that aggressive look typical of these types of laptops”. In the perspective of the reviewer from Stuff.tv, the Legion Y720 has a lot of common with the Alienware 15: When the lid is closed, it’s fairly unobtrusive (yet serious chunky), but open it up and the lashing of red are guaranteed to get us noticed. In addition, LaptopMedia also complained that the Y720’s lid, like all brushed aluminum surfaces, is a fingerprint magnet: “Opening the lid requires both hands as the center hinge is a bit overly tightened but feels a lot more stable than before”. Meanwhile, the reviewer of TrustedReviews showed his mind that the gaps between the screen and body when open seemed a little weird to him, but overall the Y720 striked a nice balance between eye-catching design and sensible practicality. Also, it’s on the chunky side for a laptop with just a GTX 1060 inside.

Display

Talking about the display, LaptopMedia gave a minus point for the Legion Y720: They had been pretty surprised to see that the Legion Y720 sported the same AH-IPS panel from the LG that they had found also in the Legion Y520. The reviewer from this page said: “To be honest, this is disappointing because the considerably cheaper Y520 offers a decent IPS panel for its price range while the same just isn’t enough for the premium Y720”. Also, unexceptionally, page BudgetGamingLaptop showed their mind that this laptop is like most sub-$1500 laptops, and one of the positive aspects of this laptop is the 15.6 inch display. Although it’s not 4K, the Full HD resolution is perfectly suitable for laptop’s screen real-estate. The panel being utilized by the Lenovo Legion Y720 is a well-lit IPS panel, providing viewing angles up to 178 degrees. “Don’t get us wrong, the display quality is good but it’s really not enough considering the price range of the Legion Y720 - it definitely works for the lower-priced Legion Y520 and even the Lenovo V510 but not in this case. The most noticeable drawback would be the limited sRGB coverage, lower than usual contrast ratio, slightly below average maximum luminance and the presence of PWM (screen flickering) from 0 to 99% brightness”, LaptopMedia concluded about the Legion Y720’s display.

Keyboard and Trackpad

In general, the Legion Y720’s keyboard made us feel great when typing on it. Nevertheless, the reviewer of Stuff.tv supposed that he wasn’t convinced the multi-colour backlighting being worth paying extra for. Also, “The keyboard is practically the same as the one we saw in the Y520 - gaming-oriented layout with big arrow keys positioned below the Numpad area, long key travel with excellent feedback and highlighted WASD keys” (LaptopMedia). Regarding the BudgetGamingLaptop, the Lenovo Legion Y720 laptop comes fitted with a gaming grade keyboard: “It has great key travel, along with 30-key rollover to avoid ghosting. The keys are nicely spaced and textured to allow maximum comfort”. Beside that, they added that we also get an RGB backlight to light up all the keys in style. About the touchpad, “They finally fixed the touchpad. It doesn’t wobble anymore, it’s responsive, clicky and accurate. The plastic surface of the trackpad area might get in the way if your fingers are moist but it will do the job just fine”, LaptopMedia stated. Thus, the mouse buttons are integrated and not visible. As reviewed on page NotebookCheck, the sound the clicks produce is acceptable at normal ambient noise levels, but in quiet environments, we noticed a short, high-frequency mechanical sound. And the click travel distance is not uniform and decreases towards the corners.

Performance

The Lenovo Legion Y720, as commented on TrustedReviews, has all the latest chips: Intel Kaby Lake for the CPU and an Nvidia Pascal-based GPU. The CPU is the Core i7-7700HQ, which runs at 2.8 GHz, and the GPU a 6 GB of VRAM GTX 1060. LaptopMedia reported the gaming test on this notebook: It reached 60 fps on Full HD (with Very High textures) on GTA V, 42 fps on Full HD (with Very High texture) on Rise of the Tomb Raider (2016), and 50 fps on Full HD (with Ultra textures) on Tom Clancy’s The Division. For TrustedReviews, “Other specs include an optional 4K display, but this probably won’t be enough to run games at the native 4K resolution of the 17-inch screen, but should be fine for 1080p gaming. It also has enough power and memory for VR gaming, albeit not at top quality settings”. Got a positive evaluation from BudgetGamingLaptop, the reviewer said that although the GTX 1060 was much more powerful than the previous generation 980M flagship GPU, it was inferior to the GTX 1070. Nevertheless, we can expect to do great gaming with the GTX 1060. Also on this page, they remarked: “In reality, 8 GB of RAM is more than enough for any gaming-related use. However, the Legion Y720 laptop comes with a double of that. 16 GB of RAM makes sure you can perform heavy tasks like image editing and video encoding. More also means much better multitasking experience”.

VR Reality and XBOX Controller connection

“The built-in Xbox One wireless receiver lets you see up to four of the console’s controllers at once, without having a mess of wires trailing from players to laptop” (quoted from Stuff.tv). In the same viewpoint, TechRadar gave their comment that the build made it a VR ready machine and Lenovo was making hard push in this particular field: “Lenovo’s new Entertainment Hub software came bundled with the Legion Y720 and on top of gathering all your media and games together into one place, the program also enables to you to enjoy movie and games in virtual reality even if they haven’t been designed for it”. Also, this page evaluated there are certainly some obvious flaws in this converted experience: “For one thing a traditional mouse or controller is a more more familiar control scheme and feels a lot less junky than trying to keep your head still. Secondly, to “upscale” a game for VR, the Entertainment Hub essentially duplicates the picture at a slightly different angle and in the process ends up cropping out part of the frame”.

Emissions

According to NotebookCheck, the Legion Y720 does well when it comes to the temperatures at idle as well as underload, the surface temperatures remain at very acceptable levels. For keeping your laptop cool under all conditions, like a comment on BudgetGamingLaptop, the Legion Y720 comes fitted with a dual fan copper heat pipe based heat dissipation system, and this makes sure our laptops perform optimally all the time. “Finally, Lenovo made an effective cooling solution for its 15 inch gaming laptop that’s able to support not only the high TDP core i7-770HQ but also the powerful GeForce GTX 1060 GPU as well” (LaptopMedia’s review).

Battery Life

In order to simulate real-life conditions, as the battery life tests of page LaptopMedia, they used their own script to automatically browse through over 70 websites: “Just about the average for a gaming laptop - 350 minutes (5 hours and 50 minutes)”. As the result of the real-world battery life tests from NotebookCheck, they simulated web surfing: “With the brightness set to 150 cd/m2, the review model lasted for 6 hours and 20 minutes - good enough”.

Verdict

To sum up, “The Lenovo Legion Y720 looks to be a solid choice for mid-range gaming laptops” (TechRadar). In my opinion, this gaming version from Lenovo is not really an extraordinary as I expected. It still has some minor detects, such as: a bit heavy for a 15-incher, or no G-Sync support on the build-in display. Notwithstanding, there are several advantages, for example, the all aluminum, thin and robust chassis, and the support for Wireless Xbox controller. Generally, BudgetGamingLaptop concluded: “It has been designed to be powerful and take on the best in market in its price category. With a very thin profile and great features, the Legion Y720 stands out from the crowd and demands respect”. Press Review by Capuchino Saber

Lenovo Legion Y720 review – Lenovo’s premium 15-inch gaming solution is all about features
Source: Laptop Media English
The Legion Y720 almost delivers what Lenovo promised from the start and we wonder why the Y520 didn’t have some of those features, like the cooling system, for example. Either way, the Legion Y720 offers updated thin and robust chassis featuring brushed aluminum, much better cooling system than the one in the Y520, more powerful GPU (GTX 1060) and better sound quality with Dolby Atmos. All of this justifies the price premium but unfortunately, the display is a big miss.

Lenovo's new Legion gaming laptops are ready for VR and more
Source: CNet English
As of right now, it seems that the 15-inch Y520 model is missing most of these high-end extra features, and only supports the Nvidia 1050 graphics chip, which means it won't work with the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. Considering other PC makers put Nvidia 1060 or better GPUs into even 13-inch laptops, it seems like something we'd like to have in a future revision. Even the 17-inch tops out at the Nvidia 1060, not the faster 1070 or 1080, but in my hands-on testing in other laptops, the 1060 is perfectly fine for virtual reality and full-resolution, high-detail-level gaming.

Source: Techradar English
The Lenovo Legion Y720 looks to be a solid choice for a mid-range gaming laptop. While we’ve seen plenty of laptops break the bank for the best specs and performance, this 15.6-inch option starts at a refreshingly affordable $1,399 (about £1,140, AU$1,950) – and users on a tighter budget may want to consider the lower-end Legion Y520 that starts at $899 (about £735, AU$1,255),

In the end, the Lenovo Legion Y720 is a fine laptop, though it doesn’t really have much that makes it stand out from the crowd. As I said earlier, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, because hardware – not software or design – is most important when it comes to gaming, and the stuff that’s packed inside this laptop is enough to ensure most games run well.

The Lenovo Legion Y720 is a solid machine, but it does have a few warts. The gaming laptop has a sturdy durable build, but it’s far heavier than most of its competitors, and the reflective shiny display lid mars the overall aesthetic. While the machine offers excellent audio, the dim and flat display detracts from your media viewing experience. However, even with those issues, the Lenovo Legion Y720 is a solid offer. Armed with an Intel Core i7, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060, and a 128GB PCIe SSD the Legion offers some competitive specs without breaking the bank.

All in all, we think the Legion Y720 succeeds in its mission of offering a premium alternative to the Y520, particularly for gamers who value great sound or who happen to have an Xbox One controller they'd like to use. We don't see it breaking into Editors' Choice territory, however—it's a tad expensive considering its small SSD, and we almost wish Lenovo had given it a GeForce GTX 1070 for more performance or more separation between the siblings. It's an impressive rig, but not as impressive in its class as the Y520 is in its.

We had some issue with our review unit of the Lenovo Legion Y720, so we still have some uncertainties regarding this computer's performance and temperatures under load. Most evidence point towards it working fine though (hence our overall rating), in which case this is one of the better 15-inch laptops with 1060 graphics out there. It's very well built, it gets a good keyboard and trackpad, a fairly large 60 Wh battery and excellent speakers. It also gets an IPS screen, albeit not with the best of panels. On the downside, it's heavy and bulky for the class, gets slow wireless and no SD card reader. Read on for the whole story below.

Well, the Y720 gives some and then takes some. The low price, looks, connection ports are its plus and perhaps also the keyboard and speakers. On the other hand, you get lower quality IPS display with dull colors (but high contrast), no GSync and thermal handling that results in high CPU temperatures. The IPS quality means it won’t be suitable for some uses and also won’t look as nice for some people. The low price (bought for $1090 including tax) is rather good, but includes only 8GB RAM and 1TB 5400RPM HDD.

The specifications on offer here are those of a system which should be a shoe-in for capable 1080p gaming. It is. At the same time, it should, and does, eat up day-to-day application tasks with a quick and recommended NVMe SSD to maintain productivity.

93% Lenovo Legion Y720 review: A great mid-high tier gaming laptop
Source: Techaeris English
For the specs and price you’re getting in the Y720, it’s hard to pass up. This gaming laptop was able to keep up with the games I played, so I don’t foresee anyone else having issues depending on what games you play.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.Intel Core i5:

7300HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture running at 2.5 - 3.5 GHz without Hyper Threading (which is supported by the faster i7 CPUs). The chip also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU clocked at 350 - 1000 MHz and is manufactured in a 14 nm process (improved compared to Skylake).
