    G-sync + 144 hz + Excellent Thermals + RTX. They don't come cheaper than this. Is the Y740 your next gaming laptop?

      I'm deciding to get a laptop that's strong enough to handle one AAA game and maybe one or two mid range games at any one time. Budget wise, I'm looking at Lenovo ideapad L340 (is 8gb of ram is relevant for the next 5 years?). Also considering Acer Predator Helios 300 (though the Amazon reviews tell that most people have problems with it getting bricked after several days of use). Currently using Lenovo Ideapad S410p from 2014. Still strong enough to handle some midrange game at medium quality and lags during typing. The Legion looks pretty but the weight and battery life turned me off.

      Hi dave, great to see you're doing great with laptop reviews.. Its always a good time watching you review laptops. I do need an advice to buy a laptop.
      I do some gaming, not a hard core gamer but do game alot on free times.
      I do lot of graphics works like photoshop, illustrations etc.
      And also web designing. And my budget is 1500$. Which is the great laptop with great performance, good speakers, colour accurate display... Will be great if u can suggest me some.. Thanks bro

          They actually allow you to configure the Y740 upto a RTX 2080 Max Q but you have to do 16GB RAM and 256GB SSD with 1TB HDD at a minimum.

            i have a feeling that Legion is aiming to be the major competitor of Alienware in the next couple of years, they started with some cheaper devices

                Might you be reviewing the y540 that just came out? B&H has one with an rtx2060 and 9750H for $1300. Keen on seeing your review!

                    I am a little torn between this and the Acer predator Helios 300. I don't know how good the thermals are on Lenovo. I had an old Lenovo y50 and the cooling on it was not so great and no turbo mode is kind of a let down. Still I could really use some suggestions if I should go for this or the Acer.

                        the legion series is seriously one of the best series of laptops especially the designs that came with the 2018 and 2019 ones. just straight brilliance, nothing to complain about except battery life.

                                        Hey Dave, there aren't a lot of GTX 16 series laptops on the market yet. Could you make a video on just what the best among those few would be? I am really confused between Helios 300 and the Y540. :((

                                          Does anyone have an idea about how the 17'' version with the 2070mq behaves? does it have better thermals (together with a larger battery?)

                                                                    • Mihnea Lazăr

It can play PUBG at 60 fps but when there are more people around me it has a lot of framedrops.... i kinda expected better but whatever, i haven't played in a while, maybe now they optimized the game... I was thinking about getting the Y540 with GTX 1660 Ti and the 2TB hard drive and then install an ssd myself. I hope you will get the performance you should!
