  1. Lenovo earlier today expanded its gaming laptop family with the introduction of the Legion Y920, an enthusiast-grade machine packing some seriously powerful hardware (albeit at a premium price point).

    The Legion Y920 is a VR-ready system equipped with a 17.3-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080 resolution) display utilizing Nvidia’s G-Sync technology. It’s powered by Intel’s seventh-generation Core i7-7820HK quad-core (eight-thread) processor clocked at 2.9GHz (Turbo up to 3.9GHz) alongside 16GB of RAM and Nvidia GTX 1070 discrete graphics.

    A 512GB solid-state drive is used as the primary drive although there’s also a 1TB traditional hard drive for less performance intensive / storage purposes.

    Lenovo’s latest also includes a mechanical keyboard with RGB lighting, dual 2W JBL speakers with 3W subwoofer, 720p webcam, Killer Wireless-AC 1535 and Killer LAN, a 6-cell, 90Wh battery and more. Connectivity-wise, you get four USB 3.0 ports, Thunderbolt 3, HDMI, a DisplayPort, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 6-in-1 card reader.

    Be prepared to do some heavy lifting, however, as the Y920 isn’t exactly lightweight at 10.14 pounds. Then again, that’s par for the course as high-end gaming laptops aren’t synonymous with being lightweight. It measures 16.7 inches by 12.4 inches by 1.41 inches and is primarily constructed of ABS plastic.

    The Lenovo Legion Y920 starts at $2,699.99 and will be available online from June.

    Isnt this super bulky/heavy/hot gaming laptop market a bit oversaturated at this point? doesnt seem like theres a massive customer base for gaming laptops that hardcore.

    Also, awfully pricey for a gtx 1070. but hopefully they spent those savings making everything else on the laptop rock solid...I doubt it though.

    So if losing in an FPS game becomes aggravating, you can land this laptop on your opponent's head for that final kill, guaranteed.

    probably the HP pavilion one. but if it is, it probably has severe (and yet to develop for him) quality control issues.

    If its not HP, he found a really good sale somewhere or theres some other base model ive somehow not heard about.

    Yeah its hp and yeah every1 told me not to buy it :D
    Its HP Omen. Also I changed hdd to my old desktops samsung evo 850 ssd. that didnt avoid warranty ^^ it was really ez to open and change it. Repearability would be 10/10 for me. (Only 6 screws at the bottom)

    Games fps = csgo maxed out 8x aa 150-250fps (32 player)
    Doom runs at low/medium settings @ 70-120fps (still looking good).

    And im from estonia. Tech is expensive here^^

    I was thinking the exact same thing. At that price it should be a gtx 1080
