Pros

  • Impeccable build quality and refreshing aesthetics
  • Lighter than its predecessor
  • Excellent keyboard and touchpad experience
  • Despite its drawbacks, the IPS screen provides good image quality
  • Supports M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs

  • The cooling design hasn't changed so the CPU still throttles during high load

Lenovo Legion Y520 in-depth review

Lenovo's Y gaming series have gone a long way since the first notebook release and from now on, the OEM is branding its mid-range gaming laptops "Legion".
