Now that both mobile Intel 9th gen and mobile GTX Turing are upon us, Lenovo is ready to update its existing entry-level Legion Y540, mid-range Legion Y740, and even entry-level Legion Y7000 to the brand new processors. The Legion 540 and Legion Y740 families consist of 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch options while the Legion Y7000 is fixed at 15.6-inch only.
Other than the CPU and GPU swap, however, chassis design and hardware features remain identical to the last generations models. We therefore recommend checking out our existing reviews on the Legion Y530, 15.6-inch Y740, 17.3-inch Y740, and 15.6-inch Y7000 to learn more about each model.
All aforementioned models can now be configured with the Core i7-9750H and GeForce GTX 1650/1660 Ti to supplant last year's Core i7-8750H and GTX 1050 SKUs. The Y540 and Y7000 will each still top out at the faster RTX 2060 while the Y740 can go up to the RTX 2080 Max-Q.
Lenovo will also be introducing a Legion Y7000p to supplement the Y7000. The Y7000p replaces the red LED lights with white that professional users may appreciate. Their chassis designs and hardware features are otherwise identical between them.
The 15.6-inch Y540 and 17.3-inch Y540 will launch in May and June for $1209 and $1269, respectively, while the 15.6-inch Y740 and 17.3-inch Y740 will be coming in May for $1609 and $1669, respectively. The Y7000p will also be coming in May for a more affordable starting price of $1199.
