Reviews for the Lenovo Legion Y530-15ICH
Function over form. Lenovo doubles down on their Y520 with an even more subdued, business-like design and all the latest components. With a Core i5-8300H, GTX 1050 Ti, and NVMe SSD, is the Y530 the new entry-level gaming laptop to own?
The Lenovo Legion Y530 isn't the perfect portable PC, but it does fit a certain use case very well. If you're looking for a gaming PC that's great for work as well, or vice versa, this is it.

Putting everything together, the Legion Y530 is a solid laptop for the casual gamer. You can get a solid 60 frames per second on most games, and decent 30 frames per second on higher demanding titles. The build and design of the Y530 also aren’t fancy and flashy, and the keyboard is good enough for both work and gaming. Plus, there is a ton of ports for connections to your accessories, and the slimmer display means there’s more room for work and play. There might be a dim display when on battery, and initial faults with the trackpad and WiFi, but those are issues problems that you can get used to with time and patience. For prices starting at $749, you can’t go wrong.
