Lenovo debuts six new Lenovo Legion laptops, towers and cubes at E3.
The company announced a new family of six gaming PCs - the Lenovo Legion Y730 and Y530 Laptops, T730 and T530 towers and C730 and C530 cubes. Each device comes with improved thermals, providing peace of mind when pushing the boundaries of your game. The latest from Lenovo Legion are redesigned from the ground up to offer a modern and polished aesthetic and high performance.
Lenovo Legion Y730 and Y530 Laptops
The Lenovo Legion Y730 and Y530 Laptops are made of aluminum and anodized in an Iron Gray. Specifically, the Lenovo Legion Y730 Laptop showcases ultrathin borders around its full HD IPS display. Meanwhile, 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.
Thinner, lighter and sleeker than before, the new laptops are designed for those who want to focus on their game even when playing in public, instead of disturbing passers-by with the numbing glow of a typical gaming machine. Instead, the Lenovo Legion Y730 and Y530 Laptops provide a stealthy cover that allows users to travel and game discreetly. Paired with a Lenovo Y Gaming Armored Backpack with a dedicated laptop compartment, your gear will stay safe and sound from rush hour to happy hour.
Lenovo claims that it has achieved better thermals by using a dual-channel cooling system with additional side vents and multi-length, multi-rotational fan blades in the new Lenovo Legion laptops. According to the company, the airflow inside the new machines has been improved by 16 percent, with 10 percent cooler system temperatures compared to before.
Both laptops come equipped with up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPUs, up to the latest 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors and Windows 10. Their keyboards are made to offer under 1ms input response time. The laptops' optional 144Hz full HD IPS displays not only offer a higher refresh rate, but also thinner bezels with brighter panels at 300 nits.
The Lenovo Legion Y730 Laptop also comes with a Dolby Atmos Speaker System with Dolby Sound Radar, while the Legion Y530 natively supports Dolby Audio.
The Lenovo Legion Y530 Laptop is the mainstream option, while its higher-end Y730 Laptop offers overclocked gaming horsepower in a 17-inch or 15-inch screen, with optional 16GB CORSAIR DDR4 overclocked memory. The Lenovo Legion Y730 also supports CORSAIR's iCUE RGB backlit keyboard and system lighting, featuring six custom macro "Y" keys for added customization of more than 16 million color combinations.
Lenovo Legion C730 and C530
The Lenovo Legion C730 and C530 cubes cater to the gamer who needs a lightweight, space-saving form factor, yet also wants the benefits of a desktop computer. Redesigned into a portable 19L Iron Gray chassis, the new cubes are more compact and lighter than before.
With an integrated top handle, the cubes can easily transport from your home to a friend's place for an all-night gaming binge. Its fully transparent top panel offers a bird's eye view into the heart of the rig - revealing its optional RGB system lighting, or clean red LED system lighting on the C530 - fully customizable through Lenovo Vantage.
Despite its small size, the Lenovo Legion C530 is a mainstream Windows 10 gaming cube at a more competitive price, while the C730 is a step up with premium features. Rocking up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPUs, up to the latest 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors and optional overclocked 32GB CORSAIR DDR4 memory on the Lenovo Legion C730, it's small but mighty. Dolby Atmos on the Lenovo Legion C730 and C530 enables moving audio that will further immerse gamers.
The new cubes also feature a dual-channel thermal ventilation system.
Lenovo Legion T730 and T530 towers
The Lenovo Legion T730 and T530 towers are 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 window on the side that reveals its roaring engine within.
The VR-ready Windows 10 towers boast up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPUs and up to the latest 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors. The Legion T730 can be armed with 32GB DDR4 overclocked CORSAIR VENGEANCE memory and an up to two 512GB PCIe RAID 0 SSD or 2TB SATA HDD storage.
Other features of the Legion towers include Dolby Atmos audio, an optional Asetek liquid cooling for the Legion T730, and tool-free upgradability.
