Lenovo’s relatively new to the gaming laptop game, at least this time around, and the latest Lenovo Legion Y920 is its most ambitious notebook to date. The 17-inch addition to its gaming line is based around an 8GB Nvidia GTX 1070 driving a 1,920×1,080 HD IPS display. Most notably though, the notebook’s display supports G-Sync, and the computer can drive an external G-Sync monitor through its full-size DisplayPort connection.
It also incorporates up to an Intel Core i7-7820HK processor, one of the seventh-generation versions of that quad-core processor family. And Lenovo makes it easy to boost the clock speed with a dedicated button on the chassis.
Other specs include 16GB memory and a up to a 512GB SSD with 1TB hard disk. In addition to the DisplayPort connection, there’s also a USB-C/Thunderbolt, HDMI, four USB 3.0 ports and an SD card slot.
At 10 pounds, it’s relatively heavy, compared with competitors from Asus, Alienware, MSI and so on. Still lighter than schlepping a desktop though!
