  • My review of the Lenovo Legion Y730. A well priced gaming laptop with great build quality.
    Available Here - amzn.to/2zmawuj
    With an i7-8750H and up to a GTX 1050 Ti. The Legion Y730 from Lenovo has strong performance and has a thin bezeled screen. It is very well built for the price and has some of the best RGB laptop lighting in the industry.

    A more premium version of the Y530. I hope they put a more powerful GPU inside soon. Thanks for watching!

      I wish you compared it to Y720 too, to see if it was a worth replacement for who has the previous 700 series...

      This keyboard setup with annoying Macro keys on the left and without Numpad on the right kinda piss me off. Y530 is better to me for this reason alone. Touchpad in the middle is kinda nice tho.

    What about the Screen, Dave seems to think that people purchase these machines for gaming only, it that was so none of them are worth it for those of us that are looking for a good gaming laptop but one for everyday productivity also. The screen you are looking at all of the time whether you are playing games or not and who wants to look at mediocre screen starring you in the face all of the time

    Hey @dave. Is this still a viable laptop july 2019???

    Consider 16xx series is already here

    • Ritwik Das
      Ritwik Das Před měsícem

      you know he's not going to reply right? And to answer your question: the laptop is still very much viable especially if you get the max spec-ed one with the 144Hz screen. The 1050ti is aging but the 16 series don't have THAT big of an advantage over it to warrant getting a y740 just for that. If you want better fps and a real upgrade on this then you can go for the y740 2060. But for general productivity stuff and gaming at more-than-acceptable fps at high settings on all except the most demanding games, the y730 is pretty great, also considering that it's price would have gone down quite a lot by now.

      @Ayesha Dhillon None of those are selling at Canada's BestBuy, So i took one with the same modifications as the y730. I took the Omen Hp 15. Its better than i though. It's excellent in gaming, runs fortnite at epic stats and 60 fps. I love it! it's like the lnovo y730 but with another cover for me. Ik it's bigger and extremely loud, but extremelly well performing. Sorry for the long text!

      Both of them are amazing laptops if you have a good budget then you can go for Legion Y730 else you can go for Lenovo Legion Y530 if you have a low budget because either ways both are amazing.... 🤭🤭🤭

    They really should have put the thunderbolt port on the back instead of on the side so that all the cables are hidden while docked. If anything it should be swapped with the USB Type-A port on the back.

    The fps you have tested for different games, is it after running ccleaner or just naturally, because I just bought the legion y730 but I'm getting 20-30fps on moderately demanding games on high settings (not max)

      If you want to play AAA games at High settings then go for Legion Y730 but if you want to enjoy normal gaming then Y530 would be the best one for you.

    I really want this laptop. I'm a sucker for the customization and the premium look of it however im afraid that the 1050ti isnt powerful enough for me. I am a light gamer but I do enjoy decent graphics on AAA games. I found the y530 for 650$ so I'm debating between the 2.
    Which one do you guys think is better for me?

    • Abhishek Nair
      Abhishek Nair Před 4 měsíci

      If you don't really play AAA games then don't go for legion Y730 go for Y530 it's the best one in it's price range and you'll love it.

    • Momo
      Momo Před 4 měsíci

      So to sum it up: games released till 2017 should play on ultra, games released late 2018 and later - high or lower. You can always play with settings for a bit to see which effects are important to you and are worth sacrificing fps. Some options lower fps and don't really change the visuals so aren't really worth turning on.

    • Momo
      Momo Před 4 měsíci

      When it comes to the specs (because you can find Y730 and Y530 with the same specs) I was in the same place one week ago and decided to buy Y730 (Intel Core i5 8gen, GTX 1050Ti). 1050ti is great if you play games like GTA V or Rise of The Tomb Raider - I can play both of these games on ultra settings with around 60-70fps (but with GTA I don't set the "advanced settings" at all, it costs few fps and doesn't really change the look of graphics). When it comes to newer titles like Shadow of The Tomb Raider you can still play on high, but not on ultra. Game on high still looks pretty decent and you get around 50-60fps. Y30 it's still a good gaming computer today, but in around 2 years it will be just average I assume.
      When it comes to design, definitely go for the Y730, it looks way more premium and really clean. Y530 looks just.. ok I guess xd The way the keyboard looks on Y530 is such a turn off xd
      If you don't mind the price you can always go for the 2019 Y740 or Y540, they have RTX graphic cards.

    I'm actually commenting on this video with a Legion y730, and I have to say I love it except for 2 problems:

    1. It gets hot when I play games. No duh right? Well since the laptop is aluminum (a heat conductor) and not plastic (a mediocre insulator), you can really feel the heat, it doesn't even get that hot but I use it on my lap all the time so keep that in mind.

    2. The keyboard requires getting used to. The macro keys I use as little hotkeys for hotkey combinations (copy paste, cut paste, send to, etc.) as I actually code but if you think you are going to instantly be able to use this laptop like a pro the second you get it, you're going to be dissapointed. This is the second day I've had this laptop and I'm already somewhat used to it, so keep that in mind.

    Overall I highly reccomend this laptop, I'm not a frame rate whore so me personally, I don't think getting its brother (y740) is worth it. Last thing to mention is that there is a setting you will have to turn on in order for games to run smoothly on the laptop when on battery

      Hi so do you think it’s good for sims 4 because that’s the only game I’m going to play on there.I have a regular computer pc so it’s not going to be my primary pc for gaming it’s just for when I wanna play on my couch or in my room. There’s a sale in Lenovo website for it it’s like $967.99 so it’s within my budget also between this and y7000 which is better thanks.

      @The Kleptomaniac the y730 fans have been getting loud but only when I'm installing something. At first I was blaming the laptop but really my old laptop got its fans kicking when it was installing. I don't know how to check the thermals but I don't think the y530 has any difference than the y730 other than the aluminum picks up the heat, either way the y530 would eventually pick up alot of heat in the plastic

    • The Kleptomaniac
      The Kleptomaniac Před 5 měsíci

      @Jorb333 so do you think that the y530 is better than the 730 in thermals?? I'm currently searching for a gaming laptop and the y530 and hp omen were on my final list when I stumbled across this video...
