Lenovo Legion Y740 first look: Black box performer with RTX 2080 and 144Hz FHD display Review | Trusted Reviews


The ideal Windows 10 laptop for 1080p gaming?

Lenovo Legion Y740 (17-Inch)


The battery life is brief and the body is hefty, but Lenovo's Legion Y740 delivers fine value among big, high-powered gaming laptops, with speed and features that rival more expensive machines.

Top-end 1080p-gaming pep via Max-Q GeForce RTX 2080 graphics. Solid build quality. 144Hz display with G-Sync. Customizable per-key backlighting. Plenty of storage. Good per-component value.

Big footprint and heavy versus other Max-Q laptops. Short battery life. Plain design given the price.

Bottom Line: The battery life is brief and the body is hefty, but Lenovo's Legion Y740 delivers fine value among big, high-powered gaming laptops, with speed and features that rival more expensive machines.

Lenovo Legion Y740 (17-inch) (2019)


The Lenovo Legion Y740 is a strong performer and boasts solid speakers, but it loses points for its dim display and questionable build quality.

Decent keyboard; Solid speakers; Strong performance and graphics

Deck flexes; Dim display; Below-average battery life

Lenovo Legion Y740 gaming laptop review: Pleasant and mature design, a great all-rounder


A gaming laptop that doesn't try to sear retinas with excess RGB is indeed a welcome change.

Lenovo Legion Y740 review: A classy gaming powerhouse


Clever design, excellent cooling and a powerful spec means that on paper, the Legion Y740 is a top gaming laptop

Neat, pared-down design ; 144hz display with G-Sync ; Customisable RGB lighting

Bad webcam location ; Odd macro key placement ; HP and Dell rivals offer better value

To get the same performance and build quality from a rival laptop, you’ll likely need to spend a couple of hundred pounds more, meaning the Legion Y740 is pretty good value. And if you spot it at a hefty Black Friday discount then you could secure an...

Lenovo Legion Y740 (17-inch) review: Understated design conceals superior Nvidia RTX firepower


Lenovo's triple threat: cutting-edge components, an understated design and a very competitive price.

One of the first laptops on the market with the latest Nvidia RTX graphics cards. High-performance display. Rear ports prevent cord tangles on the sides. Highly programmable RGB keyboard lighting. Understated, professional look.

Heavy. Keyboard feels a bit mushy.

The Legion Y740 delivers cutting-edge gaming performance at a considerably lower price than the competition.

Lenovo Legion Y740 Gaming Laptop Review: Smooth Operator


From its smooth, gray build to its reliable performance whether working or playing, the 15-inch Lenovo Legion Y740 ($1,679.99 / £1,749.99 to start, $1,919.99 / £2,009.99 as tested) is a smooth operator inside and out. The Lenovo Legion Y740 rivals...

The Lenovo Legion Y740 performs as well as it looks. Unfortunately, some physical flaws, like a nose-shooting webcam and weak questionable keyboard hold it back.
