Lenovo's PSREF page shows a new Legion Y545 model that is listed as being available in the Western Europe and Russia regions. The Legion Y545 is very much identical to the recently launched Y540 apart from sporting an aluminum construction, button-less trackpad, and RAM options up to 32 GB.

Lenovo has listed a new Legion Y545 model to its Product Specifications Reference (PSREF) page. The Legion Y545 appears to offer slight upgrades to the Legion Y540 that was announced just a few months ago. This time, we find changes to the chassis and added RAM options. 

While the Legion Y540 and its predecessor, the Legion Y530, had a predominantly plastic construction, the Legion Y545 looks to offer a more premium aluminum chassis. From the spec sheet, we also get to know that the Y545 offers a button-less trackpad and RAM options up to 32 GB. The Y540 offers the Intel Core i5-9300H/Core i7-9750H and NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti/RTX 2060 GPU options and that looks to be the same with the Y545 as well. Users can also opt for a 144 Hz display with select SKUs. We will have to confirm whether Lenovo has changed the webcam position to the top bezel or not. 

Apart from the above changes, the Y545 seems to be identical with the Y540 for the most part. Lenovo PSREF lists the availability of the Legion Y545 as Western Europe and Russia so we aren't quite sure if and when this particular model will make it to the rest of the world. Pricing information is not yet available.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
