Lenovo announced three new gaming laptops at E3 this week, and delivers a collection of new gaming PCs that are ready to deliver VR gaming in style. Legion is Lenovo’s gaming brand and with these new designs, you get a laptop that can more easily come with you to work.
These new Legion gaming laptops and desktops are redesigned to deliver the gaming style is expected, but with a more mature twist. Lenovo understands the passion and time that gamers put into their gaming setups and that’s how the new Lenovo Legion gaming PCs came to life.
While the Legion laptops keep gaming flare, they can just as easily go to work with you, so that you don’t need to carry two laptops or feel out of place by pulling a crazy looking gaming laptop out of your bag in a meeting.
The Lenovo Legion Y730 and Y530 gaming laptops offer a sleek, under-the-radar design that meets this need and still delivers a stylish look and all the thermals and design needed to handle the load of the latest games.
Lenovo’s Legion Y730 Laptop keeps the VR-ready power and Dolby Atmos sound that arrived last year, but it’s now available in a thinner, lighter all-aluminum body. You get 8th Gen Intel processors and up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics. There’s also an optional 144Hz display for gamers who want the ultimate mobile upgrade that is up to challenge existing premium gaming laptops. If you opt for the upgraded display, you also get a brighter display.
The Lenovo Legion Y530 Laptop is thinner and lighter this year, comes with better thermals and packs in the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics and Intel processors.
Offering choice, the Legion Y530 is a mainstream option, while the Y730 is a higher end gaming laptop that allows users to overclock for more power.

The Y730 also comes with the CORSAIR iCUE RGB backlit keyboard and lighting system that allows you to choose from over 16 million color combinations using six macro keys.
