Lenovo Legion Y740 Review: Compact and Powerful RTX 2080

Gamers looking for a heavy duty gaming laptop in 2019 have a huge selection to choose from. But they must be prepared for big expenses. For a lot of money, you can get more power thanks to the built-in Nvidia RTX 20 series graphics cards. I have a Lenovo Legion Y740 on the test.

Lenovo Legion Y740 Overview

I had a 17" Legion Y740 on my desk. The laptop has one of the highest configurations: an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics, 16 GB of RAM and a 256 GB PCIe NVMe SSD paired with a 1 TB hard drive. But, such a working machine costs 150 thousand rubles.

I compared this laptop to other top models in the class.
