84.2% Lenovo Legion Y720 (7700HQ, Full-HD, GTX 1060) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
A convincing concept. The equation Lenovo uses for describing their new gaming laptop does appear to make sense: power + portability = perfection. The perfection might not be absolute - but Lenovo does show that they know what a true gaming notebook is all about.

In the end, the Lenovo Legion Y720 is a fine laptop, though it doesn’t really have much that makes it stand out from the crowd. As I said earlier, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, because hardware – not software or design – is most important when it comes to gaming, and the stuff that’s packed inside this laptop is enough to ensure most games run well.

The Lenovo Legion Y720 is a good combination of high end 1080p gaming and good looks. It offers good overall performance, but is priced a little dearer than the rest of the competition.

90% Lenovo Legion Y720 review: A gaming laptop with a lot of power for a solid price
Source: Neowin English
Lenovo's Legion Y720 is a great mix of power and portability. There are most definitely laptops with better specs on the market, such as the Y920 and devices with an Nvidia GTX 1080, but the lighter specs on the Y720 leave it a bit lighter and easier to carry around, without feeling like you're sacrificing anything.

70% Lenovo Legion Y720 Review

The Lenovo Legion Y720 is a solid machine, but it does have a few warts. The gaming laptop has a sturdy durable build, but it’s far heavier than most of its competitors, and the reflective shiny display lid mars the overall aesthetic. While the machine offers excellent audio, the dim and flat display detracts from your media viewing experience. However, even with those issues, the Lenovo Legion Y720 is a solid offer. Armed with an Intel Core i7, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060, and a 128GB PCIe SSD the Legion offers some competitive specs without breaking the bank.

80% Lenovo Legion Y720 Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English
All in all, we think the Legion Y720 succeeds in its mission of offering a premium alternative to the Y520, particularly for gamers who value great sound or who happen to have an Xbox One controller they'd like to use. We don't see it breaking into Editors' Choice territory, however—it's a tad expensive considering its small SSD, and we almost wish Lenovo had given it a GeForce GTX 1070 for more performance or more separation between the siblings. It's an impressive rig, but not as impressive in its class as the Y520 is in its.

80% Lenovo Legion Y720 review – 15-inch gaming laptop with GTX 1060 graphics
Source: Ultrabook Review English
We had some issue with our review unit of the Lenovo Legion Y720, so we still have some uncertainties regarding this computer's performance and temperatures under load. Most evidence point towards it working fine though (hence our overall rating), in which case this is one of the better 15-inch laptops with 1060 graphics out there. It's very well built, it gets a good keyboard and trackpad, a fairly large 60 Wh battery and excellent speakers. It also gets an IPS screen, albeit not with the best of panels. On the downside, it's heavy and bulky for the class, gets slow wireless and no SD card reader. Read on for the whole story below.

Lenovo Legion Y720 laptop review (GTX 1060 6GB, I7-7700HQ)
Source: Gaming Laptops Junky English
Well, the Y720 gives some and then takes some. The low price, looks, connection ports are its plus and perhaps also the keyboard and speakers. On the other hand, you get lower quality IPS display with dull colors (but high contrast), no GSync and thermal handling that results in high CPU temperatures. The IPS quality means it won’t be suitable for some uses and also won’t look as nice for some people. The low price (bought for $1090 including tax) is rather good, but includes only 8GB RAM and 1TB 5400RPM HDD.

60% Lenovo Legion Y720-15 – Review
Source: Hardwareheaven English
Undoubtedly, if you were considering Lenovo for a gaming laptop this would be in the running. Understandably too, given the Kaby Lake i7-7700HQ and a GTX 1060 6GB. The specifications on offer here are those of a system which should be a shoe-in for capable 1080p gaming. It is. At the same time, it should, and does, eat up day-to-day application tasks with a quick and recommended NVMe SSD to maintain productivity. With both gaming and general use covered it’s thumbs up then. Further good news arrives with a solid design, ergonomics and speaker set up.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

3.1 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


74.92%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
