Product Expert laptops

On the 15.6-inch Lenovo Legion Y530-15ICH 81FV00GFMH you can play a game of Fortnite or Battlefield V on average settings. This Lenovo has an Intel Core i7 processor, so you can also use this laptop for video editing in Adobe Premiere Pro or streaming to Twitch. Thanks to the 256GB PCIe SSD, the level is loaded faster than that of your online opponents with a 'normal' SSD, so you can start the warming up sooner. This Lenovo Legion continues to cool optimally during intense matches, thanks to the two fans at the bottom of the laptop. There's a bit of space between the fans and the ground, so that the warm air flows away properly.

"Great gaming laptop"
In the version: i7 - 16GB - 256GB + 1TB - GTX1060 (2018)

By Andrew D'ambrosi on 18 July 2019

  • Pros:
    Great for games
  • Pros:
    Fans work well
  • Pros:
    Keyboard is responsive
  • Con:
    Battery sucks, but normal for gaming laptops

Originally bought an Acer Predator, but the screen wasn't 144hz as advertised. Easy return. Store employees couldn't find this model in-store. Had to call customer service and they found it in the store I was at (store employees couldn't?!).
Overall happy with purchase plays AAA games no problem. Runs hot, but can lower temps by adjusting core voltage offset.
