Now, let us start with the Legion Y520 which is the more affordable of the two laptops. Firstly, it is a 15.6-inch laptop with a Full HD screen and two Harman loudspeakers (2 Watts) with Dolby Audio Premium. As far as performance goes, you can have up to an Intel Core i7 CPU, up to 16GB of RAM, up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti as well as up to 2TB of storage. Battery-wise, this bad boy should ensure up to 4 hours from a single charge, depending on how you use it.

And now it’s time for the Lenovo Legion Y720 which is truly VR-ready, according to the manufacturer. This big boy also has a 15.6-inch display but this time the resolution is Ultra HD (3850 x 2160 p) and we are dealing with an IPS panel. All this is bound to ensure great 4K gaming experience.

Additionally, the hardware department is ready for the more and more popular VR. You will be presented with a 7th gen Intel Core i7 processor, accompanied by up to 16GB of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB graphics card and again up to 2TB of internal storage.
