Reviews for the Lenovo Legion Y740-17ICHg-81UJ001UGE
Source: Laptop Media 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.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.

74%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation.
