At the end of the day, the Lenovo Legion Y7000 (2019) is a decent gaming laptop that is suitable not only for gamers but also for people who are looking to edit videos or render 3D objects. However, we feel that this laptop fills a gap that doesn’t really exist. While the original Legion Y7000 was meant for the same target group, at least it had an unprecedented look, that couldn’t be seen anywhere else. However, the case with the Legion Y7000 (2019) is very different. It is a copy of the Legion Y540 (which already had a copy in the form of the Legion Y545).
