From where I’m standing, the Legion Y740S makes the most sense as the brains of that eGPU and 240 Hz monitor setup, while being a powerful work/school computer throughout the day. A highly specced configuration with the UHD screen would perhaps best cater to those needs, but it would also have to be priced competitively in order to compete with the existing gaming ultraportables that include a dGPU.

We recommend taking a wait and see approach with the Legion 740S. Lenovo is taking a huge risk by calling this a gaming laptop when it doesn't have a discrete GPU, although Razer did the same thing with lower-tier models of the Blade Stealth. What the Legion Y740S needs to prove is why you should buy it instead of any other premium laptop that could connect to an eGPU.
