Lenovo has created battle-ready Windows 10 PCs, gaming monitors and accessories that balance the edge of work and play with new PC, monitors and accessories announced at CES.
Lenovo Legion Y740S
With the extra security of a fingerprint reader built into the power button, gamers are just a tap away from filling their 15.6-inch 4K IPS screen with the heroes and villains of all time with 100 percent sRGB color gamut. With a display up to 600 nits bright, VESA certified, and Dolby Vision, which enhances your viewing experience through brightness, color, contrast and detail, the Lenovo Legion Y740S has a 60 Hz refresh rate so players can kiss washed out images goodbye.
The picture quality is matched with next generation specs including up to 32GB DDR4 of memory, 1TB PCIe SSD2 storage capacity, and an exclusive thermals design with five-point sensor array and quad fan for four times the cooling when playing graphically intensive titles.
Available in Iron Grey with metal finish and illuminated Lenovo Legion Y logo on its cover, the Lenovo Legion Y740S laptop weighs 4.18lbs (1.9kg) and offers rear and side ports including Thunderbolt 3 to allow for easier coupling with Lenovo’s first-ever external eGPU companion accessory: the Lenovo Legion BoostStation.
Turn any space into a battle station with backlit keyboard, narrow bezels, and audio with Dolby Atmos Speaker System.
The Lenovo Legion Y740S stays sleek on the outside while supporting savage gameplay when joined with the Lenovo Legion BoostStation. While on-the-go users get the advantages of a slim and light Windows 10 laptop, your performance station remains at the gamer’s home ready for the action to begin.
Supporting the gameplay enabled by NVIDIA GeForce or AMD Radeon graphics, the Lenovo Legion BoostStation with aluminum build and cool transparent side panel is compact and fits on virtually any playing surface at just under 20lbs (9.07kg); it’s also 100 percent tool-free and allows for super-fast charging. Mixed-reality features (augmented or virtual reality) are supported with applicable specifications via the eGPU.

Stay focused on the game with the new Lenovo Legion Y25-25 Gaming Monitor with a 24.5-inch, Full HD IPS panel display built into the near-edgeless chassis. Crank up refresh rates all the way to 240Hz—more FPS means that more data flows between the GPU and monitor, helping to eliminate tearing in most multiplayer games boosted with AMD Radeon FreeSync technology.
