Lenovo Unveils A Legion of New Gaming Machines – Includes Legion laptops and PCs
Savage on the inside, elegant on the outside
It’s been a little over a year since Lenovo launched their gaming focused Lenovo Legion brand and to celebrate this Lenovo launched six new gaming machines over at E3 2018 in Los Angeles. These Lenovo Legion gaming machines include the Lenovo Legion Y730 and Y530 Laptops, T730 and T530 tower PCs and C730 and C530 cube PCs.
The latest Lenovo Legion devices have been redesigned with a more mature and sleek design language, opting to exclude the more flashy and colourful aesthetics more commonly found on other gaming products. Lenovo aims to cater to avid PC gamers who value substance as much as style with the overall look of the new Legion machines.
Lenovo Legion Y730 and Y530 Laptops
The new Lenovo Legion laptops are built for today’s on-the-go gamer who travels light. Rather than juggle two laptops in one bag, the Lenovo Legion Y730 and Y530 Laptops cater to both in one chic machine. The Lenovo Legion Y730 is made out of precisely machined aluminum and anodised in a sophisticated Iron Gray with ultra thin borders around its full HD IPS display. On the other hand, the Raven Black Lenovo Legion Y530 Laptop has a subtle but compelling top cover texture that radiates out from the “O” in its Legion emblem.
Both the Y530 and Y730 gaming laptops come with with up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPUs, up to the latest 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors and Windows 10. The laptops’ optional 144Hz full HD IPS displays not only offer a higher refresh rate for smoother visuals and reduced motion blurring, but also thinner bezels with brighter panels at 300 nits. The Lenovo Legion Y730 Laptop is the world’s first gaming laptop with Dolby Atmos Speaker System with Dolby Sound Radar. Meanwhile, the Lenovo Legion Y530 Laptop natively supports Dolby Audio, which enables loud and clear sound.
The Lenovo Legion Y730 Laptop is also the first gaming laptop with a CORSAIR iCUE RGB backlit keyboard and system lighting, featuring six custom macro “Y” keys for added customisation of more than 16 million colour combinations. The Y730 comes in either 17 inch or 15 inch options whereas the Y530 will only have a 15 inch option.
Lenovo Legion C730 and C530
The Lenovo Legion C730 and C530 cube PCs are more compact and lighter than before as they have been redesigned into a portable 19L Iron Gray chassis, thus allowing you to take your highest settings virtually anywhere. The cubes feature an integrated handle at the top which makes the cubes easily portable from one place to another.
The cube PCs also feature a completely transparent top panel that reveals the components on the inside, RGB system lights on the inside of the C730 and clean red LED system lighting on the C530. The cube PCs feature up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPUs, up to the latest 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors with optional overclocked 32GB CORSAIR DDR4 memory on the Lenovo Legion C730.
The new cubes also feature a dual-channel thermal ventilation system for better heat management as well as Dolby Atmos for an immersive sound experience.
Lenovo Legion T730 and T530
Now we’ve come to Lenovo’s pièce de résistance with the Lenovo Legion T730 and T530 tower PCs. Sporting a polished design in a 28L chassis, the Raven Black Lenovo Legion T530 shares the same subtle top texture as the Y530 Laptop radiating out from its power button. The Lenovo Legion T530 features red lighting behind its thermal venting, while Lenovo Legion T730 has a full internal and external RGB system lighting behind a clear side panel that reveals its roaring engine within.
The tower PCs sport up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPUs and up to the latest 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors. There’s also optional 32GB DDR4 overclocked CORSAIR VENGEANCE memory and up to two 512GB PCIe RAID 0 SSD or 2TB SATA HDD storage for the Lenovo Legion T730. The T730 also has optional Asetek liquid cooling for reliable, whisper-quiet heat dissipation while gaming.
