Lenovo launches Legion Y520 and Y720 laptops for immersive gaming and VR experiences

Lenovo has already started announcing its CES 2017 portfolio two days before the event begins. It has announced a new range of ThinkPad X1 products, a brand new Alexa-powered Smart Assistant and Smart Storage for smart homes and two gaming laptops. So far Lenovo has not really been known as a gaming laptop player, but looks like that is going to change in 2017 with the announcement of the sub-brand Lenovo Legion.

The Lenovo Legion Y520 and Legion Y720 are laptops designed for immersive PC-gaming experiences. The two laptops will address the mainstream as well as enthusiast gamers. According to Lenovo, “These products are a result of talking to thousands of gamers and understanding and anticipating their needs.”

Both the laptops will come with Intel 7th generation processors, Windows 10 Home OS, give you an option to use either a 512GB SSD or a 2TB HDD along with Nvidia 10-series graphics cards.

The Lenovo Legion Y720 is the flagship in the series and is seriously kitted out, offering top of the line specs. It will also include the option of an integrated Xbox One wireless receiver built-in which can support up to four controllers for gaming with friends. It is also the first PC with Dolby Atmos support. Here is a low down on the major specs on the Legion Y720
