Lenovo Goes High-End With Legion Y920 Gaming Notebook, Outs New IdeaPads And Flex Laptops, Too

Lenovo just announced a slew of new laptops today, including several IdeaPads, two 2-in-1s, and a gaming laptop.

IdeaPads

The company’s latest IdeaPad models make up the majority of the laptops revealed today, with options which should appeal to shoppers looking for entry-level notebooks all the way up to ultrabook level laptops.

All of the new IdeaPad models will feature up to a 7th-gen Intel Core i7 processor. To begin with, Lenovo revealed the IdeaPad 320, which will feature entry-level specs and come in either 15.6-inch or 17.3-inch models. The smaller 15.6-inch model has an HD (1366x768) display and an optional touchscreen upgrade for $50, whereas the 17.3-inch model is available in HD+ (1600x900), but with no touch screen.

If you’re looking for a slimmer profile, Lenovo is also offering the IdeaPad 320S, which is available with either a 14-inch or 15.6-inch FHD (1920x1080) IPS display. The 15.6-inch model supports up to an Nvidia GeForce GT940MX mobile GPU for graphics-intensive applications. Finally, the IdeaPad 720S will offer Ultrabook-level looks and specs; it has a 17.3-inch IPS display, up to a GT940MX, supports Thunderbolt via USB Type-C, and will have a variety of metallic paint finishes.

The latest Lenovo IdeaPads will be available in early June. The IdeaPad 320 15 and 17 start at $440 and $490, the IdeaPad 320S 14 and 15 start at $740 and $750, and IdeaPad 720S starts at $970.

If you’re looking for a 2-in-1 laptop, Lenovo is also offering the Flex 5, which comes in 14-inch and 15-inch display sizes. The Flex 5 can be used as a traditional laptop, a tablet, positioned as a tent, or propped up like a stand, thanks to its 360° hinge. 1080p IPS models are available for both the 14-inch and 15-inch Flex 5s, but Lenovo will also offer the Flex 5 15 with up to a UHD IPS display.

Game Time

Last but not least, Lenovo revealed the specs for the Legion Y920, the company’s latest gaming laptop. The Legion Y920 is an interesting direction for Lenovo, which usually brings entry-level to mid-end gaming laptops to market. What sets the Legion Y920 apart from the company’s typical offerings is the GTX 1070 and the option for an overclockable i7-7820HK processor; this, along with its ample port selection, should make it more than ideal for VR gaming. The Legion Y920 will be equipped with a 17.3-inch FHD (1920x1080) IPS display with G-Sync technology. Additionally, it will feature a full-sized mechanical keyboard with RGB backlighting.

The Lenovo Legion Y920 will be available in early June starting at $2,700.

    GTX 1070 in it? Seriously this is something cool for gaming, but $2700 is quite high. With such specification, a gamer can build a PC in around $2000.
    Check out these specs:
    CPU: Intel - Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz Quad-Core Processor ($329.89 @ OutletPC)
    CPU Cooler: Corsair - H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($99.99 @ Corsair)
    Motherboard: Asus - PRIME Z270-A ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($149.89 @ OutletPC)
    Memory: G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($243.97 @ OutletPC)
    Storage: Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($107.88 @ OutletPC)
    Storage: Seagate - Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.89 @ OutletPC)
    Video Card: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Superclocked Gaming ACX 3.0 Video Card ($498.99 @ SuperBiiz)
    Case: NZXT - Phantom (Black) ATX Full Tower Case ($114.99 @ Amazon)
    Power Supply: Corsair - CXM 750W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($76.99 @ Amazon)
    Total: $1692.48

    They need to work a bit on the price.

    You forgot the G-sync monitor and mechanical keyboard in your numbers. Oh and how about the fact that you can pick it up and take it pretty much anywhere with you.

    While I agree that $2700 is steep, comparing it to desktop parts is pretty useless.

    Compare it to laptops with a GTX 1070 in them like this Sager one for $1629: http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np8157-clevo-p650hs-g.html
