This model is a powerful competitor among game-playing computers. Providing its owner with incredibly high efficiency and graphs, thanks to a modern and vivid display. And all this fits in an elegant case. It’s impossible to find a laptop for playing games that would be perfect in everything, but Lenovo tried very hard to bring potency and elegance to this sampler, not forgetting about the reliability of the system.
There is absolutely indubitably this computer can handle any intensity of games. Inside it is hidden the newest Intel i7 mainframe, the discrete Nvidia Turing GPU, and just an unrealistic amount of memory. As well as applications that allow you to customize the gameplay perfectly for you.

It looks like a simple and concise laptop, but it will be able to fulfill any of your whims, as it is very powerful. The whole body frame is made of top-quality aluminum, which gives it durability. Well, if you are tired of classic designs, then this model can please you with a backlight not only on the keyboard but also on the ventilation holes on the case.
Another impeccable plus of this model is the thought-out port management and even the fact that you can connect up to three monitors at a time. The development company pays special attention to the cooling system, it even has its separate name «LegionColdFront». It is a two-channel thermal system with four ventilation holes and individual coolers for keyboards and processors. Due to this, the Legion Y740 does not heat up so much during a long game process.
The fingerboard has super convenient keys with a slight sense of rubberization. There is also an anti-reflective coating, which allows you to clearly and accurately respond in any light. The backlight looks amazing and in settings, you can customize it for yourself. The touch bar is simple enough and very accurate. By the way, this is one of some computers that we met with separate right/left buttons.
Could you imagine a gaming laptop without an amazing display? Here we are. FHD 1080p, which this model offers, is accurate, detailed, and with muted color rendition. The display is furnished with an extraordinarily quick updating rate, and also has an Nvidia G-Sync feature that limits screen tearing.
Of course, fabricators split hairs with a webcam, moved it to the lower part of the screen. A very clumsy angle of view, which during the video calls will show your nose in all its glory.
The sound setting is much wider than a regular gaming laptop. Available software upgrade and various equalizer settings to your taste.
