Legion Y740S Lenovo Gaming Laptop With 15.6-inch 4K Display, 8-hours Battery at CES 2020

With the Legion Y740S, Lenovo presents its thinnest and lightest gaming laptop to date. However, the fact that a powerful graphics chip completely dispenses with is an interesting compromise.

The Lenovo gaming laptop can be expanded at home with either an AMD Radeon RX 5700XT or an Nvidia graphics card up to the GeForce RTX 2080 Super.

On the way, you have to be content with a graphics chip integrated into the CPU. You can forget about gaming, apart from some older and less demanding titles. The notebook became thinner and lighter – with a thickness of 14.9 millimeters and a weight of 1.9 kilograms, the Lenovo Legion Y740S is quite portable – in any case significantly lighter than the original Lenovo Legion Y740 (starts from $1,599 on Amazon and Bhphotovideo) with its weight of 2.2 kilograms. The battery life is specified as 8 hours.

Inside it a 10th generation Intel Core processor (probably H series with a TDP of 45 watts), up to 32GB DDR4 RAM and a maximum 1TB PCIe SSD. Unfortunately, a 15.6-inch display is limited to only 60 Hz in any case, here Lenovo only gives the user the choice between a 1080p panel (300 nits, 72% sRGB) or a 4K screen (500 nits, 100%) sRGB).

There is also Wi-Fi 802.11ax, Bluetooth 5.0, two Thunderbolt 3, two USB 3.1 Gen 2, an SD card reader, a headphone jack, an illuminated keyboard and a fingerprint sensor in the power button.

The Lenovo Legion Y740S is expected to be available in May 2020 at prices starting at $1,099.
