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

    What is a better wifi card for the y740 that I can buy ? I don't know which one is good to buy.

  • Jesús Martínez Bujanda Mora

    I Dave, I really like your reviews, I find them more honest than most out there, keep the nice work please!.
    I would like to ask you at similar price for same specs which laptop would you recomend me between MSI GS65 and Lenovo Y740? For me it will be a gaming laptop but also my business laptop and I will be travelling with it sometimes but not crazy often. Thanks!

      @Jeya Nishwanth Lenovo was offering a pretty big discount, I think they're still offering a discount but not as much. I also stacked it with the student discount which gave me extra 5% off.

    Guys and gals I need your help. I'm strongly considering purchasing the Y540 however I'd like to pick the best specs configuration one of retailers has to offer. My question is this - if Y540 is originally equipped with i7 8750H processor by the manufacturer but the retailer offers i7 9750H configuration - will it run properly with other components ? I don't want to deplete battery life or to cause overheating just because other components are suitable for a different version of CPU.
    Thank you !

      The 9th gen CPU and the 8th gen CPU is basically the same since it's based on the same architecture. I believe the 9th gen has higher boost frequency, however if your gaming it will never reach turbo boost clock so your fine

      @akshay bholee
      I really don't know but as 9-1-2019, they are offering a code on some lenovo laptops that make you save from $280 to $630 using code "INTELGAMERDAYS". Also I wanna add that when you make an account at Lenovo, you will get a $100 code as a gift from them.

      But I will wait for blackfriday, because HP gaming laptops will be on sale too and from other companies as well.

    • akshay bholee

    why are amd cpus coupled with nvidia gpus not as popular as the usual intel and nvidia combination?

    • Jeppe Petersen
      Jeppe Petersen Před 17 dny

      Ziggy Marto because intel have dominated the market for a long time, so people know what they are getting with intel. Also intel has 4-6-and 8 cores, where AMD is only 4 cores. That being said, I also think the ryzen equivalent is a great choice for budget laptops

    Just bought mine today, haven't tried it yet, my main purpose of buying it is for video editing.

    • RonTraveLife
      RonTraveLife Před 12 dny

      @adiel kanantha Hi, so far so good. editing was smooth, maybe I have upgraded my RAM from 8gb to 16gb. No issues since i bought it. Though haven't tried on playing games as I have to finish my Travel Vlog project. Maybe after this, I will try to download heavy games to try out its full potential, and will do a vlog on that as well, Unboxing and performance review.

    Lenovo updated legion y740 with 9th gen intel , 500nits display ,better color accuracy and solved the backlight bleeding issue. Do you know if this is true about the display?

    There's also a RTX2080 version, why did you say it stops at the 2070 ??

    • Jeppe Petersen
      Jeppe Petersen Před 17 dny +1

      Martin Kiel because it was updated this summer, so now it goes up to a 2080. At the time of filming the max was a 2070 maxq

    I was kind of put off by the battery but I realized that if and when I am gaming, I would choose to be somewhere I have a wired connection. So, if and when I am, then I would have access to a power outlet. And if I’m mobile, i.e. waiting for a flight, I am guessing that the battery would be sufficient enough to get me through. In the end, I went and bought this piece of beauty with the 9th Gen i7 processor. =)

    i have one... good one??? are you joking??? it overheating AF... got it for 3 weeks and the back panel behind the display fking twisted from the heat.... despite it runs amazingly, keyboard is pretty shallow but very good as well, despite sometimes the buttons feels like they are not on right place when you push them down. touchpad is perfectly precise but the edge betwee those buttons and the touchpad screen is too sharp, my finger hurt after while.. display is ok... looks a bit dim, but it those antireflex screens wich will never reach colour and shine of other screens. the body is ok, but sometimes it feels. the long body under the keybord is not an issue if, again, the edge of the body can be more curved ffs... got it on my table in horizontal angle and it kind hurt my forearms in a while.... i really love this machine, but tell me one thing...... how the company as lenovo can do such a stupid mistakes in those details??? from my opinion is one of the best machines on market... descent look, not like alien spaceship gaming laptop for teenagers... but this overheating is absolutely incredible and makes it a piece of brick... if i have all of this power of gaming notebook i cant use because it overheats, what i can do? feels like a ferrari stored in garage...

    • Emil Schnell
      Emil Schnell Před 23 dny

      @sabishiihito Depends on the product or the seller. I've yet to look into the full cost of import but I think it would add up to around the same. I'm just unsure of the quality and usefullness of customer support when you're overseas. Besides the american Lenovo website give you the choice of customizing your laptop, where on the danish one we can't and the cheapest model starts at 2090 dollars and up

      I'm sure it has slightly better gaming performance, but other than that the Lenovo has better features IMO.

    Lenovo sucks! I ordered my y740 more than a month ago! Delays, delays, delays!!!
    Then I canceled this order, and ordered a same-day-shipping model, also Y740, but better specs. And you'll be surprised! - delays, delays, delays!
    Support sucks, website lies about the shipping dates!

    Does the 15 inch version have a USB C Thunderbolt Display Port? Or is it only data transfer? I need a laptop that has display port thunderbolt, like a mac. It's weird how the 17 inch version has it, but I'm not sure about the 15 inch. Anyone know?

    • Xianzhe Li
      Xianzhe Li Před 15 dny

      No, Y540 doesn't have Thunderbolt, but all new Y740 models do. If you really like the design of Y540, I'd recommend you to consider new Y740.

    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 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.

      Hey, I've been using the Legion Y740 since a while now and trust me it works like a beast, on the other hand Acer lags and heats much more comparatively. So I'd suggest you to go for the Y740 instead.

    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.
