Say hello to Lenovo’s Y520 laptop, or Legion if that’s more comfortable. This is yet another foray Lenovo is making into gaming laptops after last year’s Y700. This one, however, looks even more promising.

For starters, its speedy to say the least. The Legion Y520 is outfitted with Intel’s newest seventh-generation Core i7 processors and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. It also comes with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU for improved graphics and fast-paced gaming. Sure, It’s no 1070 or 1080, but it should do the job.

The laptop has a 15.6-inch Full HD anti-glare screen. Thanks to the power mentioned above, pixilation and screen lag are almost next to none. This also means your multimedia experience is going to be equally enjoyable as well. This is aided by the dual Harmon speakers with Dolby Atmos sound, engineered into the device to give you that immersive audio needed when gaming or even just watching a movie.

According to research, it has come to light that most gaming takes place between 6pm and midnight. As a result, Lenovo has added an optional red backlit keyboard for improved visibility when you need to smite your foes. The Legion Y520 is surprisingly light as well, considering all the hardware. It weighs in at only 2.5kg and is only 2.58cm thin when closed.

Lenovo Legion Y520 Laptop starts at Dh3,099 and is available across all major retailers in the UAE.
