- I am so excited to test out this computer! I got a new VR gaming set and was thrilled to see it works perfectly on this laptop. Even my desktop can’t handle VR gaming. I am using Steam VR to run the games and then the software for my gaming kit. I have had no freezing or hanging at all. I am able to play social VR games as well as solo ones. I have done about 20 different games now and have yet to experience a single glitch.The system is ready to go for you out of the box. Sign on to your Windows ID and you are up and running in a few minutes. Everything was in place and connected properly. The charger is very quick as well, only took an hour to fully charge it while I was gaming at the same time. I really love how light this laptop is! It is a powerhouse compared to my HP and it weighs less than half! It also looks so sleek and nice, but that is not a requirement.At full price I feel like you are getting your money out of it. I would be happy to pay full price for this laptop, it really does a great job running every game I have thrown at it. The built-in subwoofer is also super nice, my games sound fantastic. I would buy a quality cooler for this if you are going to be gaming for long periods of time.
- I bought this laptop when it was on sale on the Lenovo Website and with coupon military discounts I got it for around $1850. I did not purchase it from Amazon. The laptop is very solid in construction, at least for the main body. You can easily hold the entire weight of the laptop from one corner and not feel any flex. the screen portion of the body is a bit weaker, but that happens when you make it thin. The bezels aren’t as slim, and the overall size of the laptop is noticeably larger than some of the competitors machines I’ve tested like the MSI GS75 Stealth, Asus ROG Zephyrus, or the Razer Blade 15. Even with identical CPUs, Nvidia Geforce RTX 2080 Max-Q Graphics, and Killer Wireless, The Lenovo Legion Y740 appears to slightly outperform all those machines when it comes to smooth and consistent game play and FPS. I will say that the Killer Wireless chips caused issues on all of the machines I tested that had them and I have since replaced it with an Intel equivalent and have had no issues since. One major issue that has actually bothered me is light bleed in the LCD. The screen is very vibrant and bright, but there is a ton of light bleed in the corners and along the top and bottom left especially on my system. It’s only noticeable when the screen is black and when I watch a dark movie or a cut-scene in a video game with black bars. This does bother me when I notice it and it was almost enough to make me return this particular system if it weren’t for the fact that I got it so cheap relative to the performance it brings. The screen is also not True IPS, though it is close enough to be considered IPS-Like and viewing angles are very good. Battery life is quite similar to all other current gaming laptops. I get around 1-2 hours of gaming depending on the game, and up to 4 hours of moderate basic use like web browsing and streaming video. The hybrid graphics mode of this laptop that allows you to switch to integrated graphics does save a little more battery, but in my opinion isn’t worth the effort to reboot the system for the switch, or the loss in overall graphics performance. Overall its a very solid laptop, and for the price there basically isn’t a better performing system on the market, I just personally wish I had a better experience with the screen and the light bleed because that does still bother me quite a bit and I’d be happy to give Lenovo better press if they acknowledged it as a defect and not just a thing that’s normal, which was their actual response to me.
- Let me just start by saying that I am not a huge fan of the Windows OS. I have chosen to buy mostly Macs throughout my life with the exception of a few custom builds and gaming laptops sprinkled around. However, I can honestly say that this is BY FAR the best computer I have ever owned!First of all, for the specs on this thing, it is hard to beat the price unless you part it out and build your own. Out of the box, it is the most impressive laptop that I have seen. The build quality is very sturdy and it seems pretty durable, which is surprising for a laptop. The size is also incredible! The screen is massive and it is basically like playing on a small monitor. With this being said, it is a little heavy but you can’t complain if you want something that big that’s not going to bend all over the place.Anyways, as for performance, I have played a few steam games on it as well as Fortnite and I am so so happy with the results. I hard wire it to my fiber internet and those two combined give no lag whatsoever. The video and sound are very clear and with the downloadable Lenovo performance app (its kinda weird that it doesn’t come on there), you can jack up the cooling and it barely even gets warm. Overall an awesome computer!!
- never owned a gaming laptopThe set up of the laptop for windows 10 was easy and took the expected amount of time.The unit was fully charged from the box to full power in about 45 minutes and the wifi was easily set up.Over wifi I had some trouble getting my steam account to connect but after several password changes and restarts was able to download a 4.7 gig game in 45 minutes (Civ Beyond Earth) but I noticed a significantly speedier load time when running the game. .However the battery power was depleted pretty quick, a 100% charge went to 30% over a 3 hour time period. There is a big subwoofer on the bottom, also the unit heats up pretty quickly. I don’t recommend using it on your actual lap.It has a nice big screen, a backlit keyboard that’s pretty cool looking, and lots of ports. All pluses. Responsive keypad sits on the left-hand side of the center. I haven’t gone through the entire unit but can say it is big, pretty, quick and gets hot. Use on a desk, and keep a power source handy,
