85.6% Lenovo Legion Y740-17ICH (i7-8750H, RTX 2080 Max-Q) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
A mid-range laptop equipped with a high-end GPU. The Lenovo Legion Y740 is just as powerful as some of the popular heavy hitters in the enthusiast gaming notebook market even if it doesn't quite look or feel the part.

80% Lenovo Legion Y740 17-inch review: Ray tracing and DLSS on a laptop
Source: Neowin English Archive.org version
If you're in the market for a gaming PC, you've obviously got a lot of options, but I think the 17-inch Lenovo Legion Y740 is a pretty good choice. It's massive, and we'll be taking a look at the 15-inch model in a week or two. But as long as you're OK with the size, you're good to go.

It’s crystal clear where Lenovo’s focuses were with its Y740 gaming laptops update: power, power and more power. However, this coupled with once-optional features coming standard has hiked the starting price up considerably.

Lenovo Legion Y740 17″ review – enjoy gaming, while being incognito
Source: Laptop Media English Archive.org version
The Legion Y740 17″ is built for gamers that are not all in the aggressive looks or the gold, red and black combinations. No, in fact, the laptop is combining silver with a somewhat industrial design and a pinch of blue as a backlight on various places. Of course, there is the RGB keyboard, but it looks ever so subtle on this chassis.

83.2% Lenovo Legion Y740-17IRH Review: Gaming bolide gets high marks for its great power delivery and low heat development | Notebookcheck
Lenovo's gaming notebook displays all current games smoothly on its matte 17.3-inch screen (144 Hz, G-Sync, FHD, IPS) and also offers great connectivity: a combination of SSD + HDD, 16 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode) & a Thunderbolt 3 port. The iGPU is disabled ex-works but can be activated by the end user. This has a positive impact on battery life.

In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.
