Gaming has become bigger than ever and PC companies like Lenovo aim to give gamers choice. The company has just debuted six new Lenovo Legion laptops, towers, and cubes at E3 2018. Lenovo says the new Legion lineup is redesigned from the ground up. The company went for a more modern and polished aesthetic that is less flashy and juvenile looking. But what good is it to just make the lineup look better. The Lenovo Legion series is also packed with better performance and able to handle just about any gaming environment you can throw at them.
More than capable of handling some of today’s most demanding games, both laptops come fully-equipped with up to NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti GPUs, up to the latest 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processors and Windows® 10. Their keyboards are made to offer under 1ms input response time – designed to deliver that split-second advantage in competition.
The laptops’ optional 144Hz full HD IPS displays not only offer a higher refresh rate for smoother visuals and reduced motion blurring but also thinner bezels with brighter panels at 300 nits – making characters come to life in crisp detail.
Legion Y730 Laptop
The Lenovo Legion Y730 Laptop improves on the VR-ready and Dolby Atmos features introduced last year with a thinner and lighter all-aluminum body, upgraded 8th Gen Intel processors, up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics and an optional 144Hz display for true visual fidelity to rival the market’s premium gaming laptops.
Made of precisely machined aluminum and anodized in a sophisticated Iron Gray, the Lenovo Legion Y730 Laptop showcases ultrathin borders around its full HD IPS display.
Lenovo Legion Y730 Laptop is the world’s first gaming laptop with a fully customizable CORSAIR iCUE RGB backlit keyboard and system lighting.
The Y730 Laptop is the world’s first gaming laptop with Dolby Atmos Speaker System with Dolby Sound Radar. Dolby Atmos Speaker System creates an amazing experience over Dolby custom-designed and tuned PC speakers or over headphones.
Legion Y530 Laptop
The Lenovo Legion Y530 Laptop is a step up for mainstream gamers on the go with a slimmer, lighter and sleeker redesign, and improved thermal layout and up to latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics and Intel processors.
The Raven Black Lenovo Legion Y530 Laptop has a subtle but compelling top cover texture that radiates out from the “O” in its Legion emblem. With the new laptops’ sophisticated design, gamers will no longer have to worry about judgmental eyes in business meetings.
The new Y530 Laptop natively supports Dolby Audio, which enables loud and clear sound. Combining crystal-clear visuals with incredible sound, the new laptops provide an all-around immersive gaming experience.
Legion 7000 Laptop
The Lenovo Legion Y7000 Laptop is a cousin of the Y530 made for the US retailer, still for mainstream gamers with the redesign including the aluminum top and Y logo, as well as improved thermal layout and up to latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics and Intel processors.
The Y7000 Laptop comes with an edgier chassis design featuring a backlit “Y” logo on its aluminum top cover, but with the same great performance on the inside as the Lenovo Legion Y530 Laptop.
The Lenovo Legion T730 and T530 towers serve as the stunning centerpiece to a killer gaming setup. Sporting a polished design in a 28L chassis, the Raven Black Lenovo Legion T530 shares the same subtle top texture as the Y530 Laptop radiating out from its power button. The Lenovo Legion T530 features red lighting behind its thermal venting, while Lenovo Legion T730 has a full internal and external RGB system lighting behind a clear window on the side that reveals its roaring engine within.
Easily handling today’s most demanding AAA games and graphically intensive applications, the VR-ready Windows 10 towers boast up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPUs and up to the latest 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors. Squeeze every drop of performance from your Lenovo Legion T730 and go beast mode with its optional 32GB DDR4 overclocked CORSAIR VENGEANCE® memory and up to two 512GB PCIe RAID 0 SSD or 2TB SATA HDD storage.
Wrapped in a refined chassis with a transparent side panel revealing an array of customizable RGB lighting, the Lenovo Legion T730 is a 28-liter VR-ready powerhouse delivering overclocked 60fps performance to play today’s most demanding titles in high resolution.
When your game heats up, the T730’s optional Asetek liquid cooling offers reliable, whisper-quiet heat dissipation for increased framerate stability, smoother gameplay, and reduced system noise even when you’re pushing your game to its limits. The Lenovo Legion towers let you stream across your favorite online platforms with full confidence that your most epic killstreaks can be broadcast in 4K4 with high frame rates.
The Lenovo Legion T530 is a mainstream VR-ready gaming tower packed with the latest generation of graphical power and tool-free upgradable design in a sleek raven black chassis that’s ready for battle.
The new towers don’t hold you back from upgrading later down the road either. We’ve future-proofed the towers with tool-free upgradability so you can tweak, tune and easily swap out the latest graphics or memory at the press of a button – no toolbox or flashlight needed.
The Lenovo Legion C730 and C530 cubes cater to the avid gamer who needs a lightweight, space-saving form factor, yet also wants the benefits of a desktop computer. Redesigned into a portable 19L Iron Gray chassis, the new cubes are more compact and lighter than before – letting you take your highest settings virtually anywhere.
With a convenient, integrated top handle, the easy-to-carry cubes can easily transport from your home to a friend’s place for an all-night gaming binge. Its fully transparent top panel offers a bird’s eye view into the heart of the rig – revealing its optional RGB system lighting for a mesmerizing array of colors on the C730, or clean red LED system lighting on the C530 – fully customizable through Lenovo Vantage.
Fully loaded with overclocked components, the Lenovo Legion C730 is a striking 19L compact PC in a distinct Iron Gray cube form factor boasting desktop performance.
Rocking up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPUs, up to the latest 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors and optional overclocked 32GB CORSAIR DDR4 memory on the C730, it’s small but mighty – ready to unleash a powerful, VR-ready gaming experience.
A compact 19L cube form factor ideal for grab-and-go gaming, the mainstream Lenovo Legion C530 offers up to the latest Intel processors and optional NVIDA GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics as well as tool-free upgradability.
