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.

"Sufficient for my daily use"

SJ | 6 May 2020 | In the version: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650

  • Pros:
    powerful enough for video editing
  • Con:
    battery runs out fast
  • Con:
    characters from other languages (Asian languages for example) can not be shown
  • Con:
    apps with other languages can not be recognized sometimes
  • Con:
    noisy sound of fan

The system does not accept other languages as display languages, sometimes the system went wrong with other languages. The battery runs out fast but I think that's normal for gaming laptops.

  • Con:
    Camera is in a weird position (under screen)
  • Con:
    Energy adapter is heavy

I purchased this laptop for gaming, and have not been disappointed. The CPU and graphics card are both excellent and can run most games at 60 Hz and max settings. The design isn't amazing or over-the-top, but that's perfectly fine. Cons are the same as any other gaming laptop: heavy, potentially noisy (although you can configure it to be pretty silent at the cost of performance), and the battery life is only alright. The camera is under the screen instead of on top, which makes for a weird angle when Skyping, but it's not a huge issue. The energy adapter is heavy due to the laptop's high power consumption when gaming. Overall, it's a gaming laptop with a great benefit/cost ratio.

  • Pros:

  • Pros:

  • 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.
