Reviews for the Lenovo Legion Y530-15ICH

83.8% Lenovo Legion Y530 (Core i5-8300H, GTX 1050 Ti) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
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?
80% Lenovo Legion Y530 Review

Priced at Rs. 88,899, the Lenovo Legion Y530 is on par with similarly configured models from other manufacturers. Considering that the lower-end variant with the GeForce GTX 1050 costs only Rs. 3,100 less, we think choosing this one is a no-brainer. There aren't that many models from other manufacturers with exactly the same combination of CPU, GPU, RAM, SSD, hard drive and screen, but Dell, HP, MSI and Asus all have very similar offerings, give or take a few thousand rupees. That actually gives you more choices, and you can take your pick when it comes to style.

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.

Lenovo Legion Y530: This is the gaming laptop I’ve always wanted
Source: Our IT Department English
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.
