At CES 2020, Lenovo unveiled a 15.6 inches laptop, the Legion Y740S. The laptop weighs 4.18 pounds and has a thickness of just 0.58 inches. So, we can say with confidence that it will be lightweight compared with other laptops in general.
The explanation behind the laptop being incredibly lightweight is because it will go with the Legion BootStation, the company’s first external GPU. Also, the laptop itself offers only integrated Intel graphics, sufficient for light gaming.
So, massive gamers can go with the Legion BootStation to get the best gaming performance.
The BootStation can handle 330 mm long graphics cards and provides a decent number of options about GPU packages. Like NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti, you can have the eGPU and go higher into the NVIDIA GeForce RTXTM 2080 Super 8 GB. If this isn’t enough, you can also use the AMD Radeon RX5700XT with your side.
The laptop has a 10th-generation core i9 H-Series, 32 GB of RAM, and 1 TB of SSD capacity. But what is deceitful is that it has a 60Hz refresh rate that is much too low. It’s not difficult to find a laptop with a refresh rate of 120Hz or even higher these days.
The Y740S Legion makes us happy in communication. How is that? How is that? Two Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, one SD-card reader, and a headphone jack, are included. And this is more than ample ports for laptop gaming.
If you decide to go with this laptop, you will also be able to choose a 1080p or 4K display. And whatever show you take, you will be stuck with 15.6 inches of screen size.
So it’s a fairly decent laptop with $1099.99 in price. This being said, the Legion BootStation starts with $249.99; especially if you are a heavy gamer.
