Lenovo's Legion Y920 is a monster gaming laptop at a monster price

Gamers on the go with some extra cash to burn will want to turn their attention to Lenovo and its latest gaming notebook, the Legion Y920. Sitting at the very top-end of Lenovo's gaming lineup, the Legion Y920 is a beast of a machine with a price to match.

The VR-ready Legion Y920 comes with multiple GPU options, including NVIDIA's GTX 1070, along with Intel's latest 7th-generation Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of storage. Aside from raw specs, however, the Y920 picks up some extra gaming cred thanks to its 17.3-inch NVIDIA G-Sync display, which should mean buttery-smooth frame pacing with zero screen tearing. And as if taking a queue from Razer's Blade Pro, the Legion Y920 also packs a mechanical keyboard with full RGB support.

Here's a full look at the specs:

  • EVGA SC17 is a way better option for the same price or a little cheaper (When I bought it).
  • It's showing for $2,300 at Newegg. It only has a 256GB drive, but 4K screen. The EVGA looks like a better value. Thanks for pointing it out. I've been looking for a new gaming laptop.
  • Looks pretty badass.
  • I wonder where people get $2700 bucks to waste on something like that when you can build a nice portable Intel Skull Canyon system for $1700 or so and another 500 bucks gets you a Razer Core. Skull Canyon System - 569 on sale
    32 GB Crucial RAM - 229.99
    500GB MyDigital SSD BP5e (data drive) - 179.99
    500GB MyDigital SSD BPX (boot drive) - 229.99
    Cooler Master MasterKeys Pro L RGB - 135.09
    eVGA NVidia GTX1070 - 351.67
    Total without GPU Enclosure = $1695.73 And it's upgradable!!!!
    Travel system
    Living Room System!!!
    Supports 4k displays * 4. And it plays the Witcher I @ 4k without anything needed, so I can take it on my trip using it for work and play.
  • I think you missed the point of a laptop. It is portable. You can grab it and go out the door in a second. You can run it just about anywhere, and use it without a plugin. It sits on your LAP when needed. I'm all for building PCs, but you are totally missing the point here.
  • I don't game from a laptop. I game from my desktop. I need a portable workstation, not a laptop. I don't plan on working on a plane, just at my destination. Like I said, not everyone's needs are the same.
  • So why bother looking at this and commenting, then? There are those who game from a laptop, and that's who this computer is aimed at. If you want a desktop, go look at a desktop.
