Lenovo Announced New Gaming Lineup At E3
Yeah we know E3 is pretty much all wrapped up, but I wanted to highlight some pretty sweet products coming from Lenovo Legion – Lenovo’s sub-brand dedicated to PC gaming products.
In total, Lenovo introduced six new items – two laptops, two towers and two cubes. All devices come with new thermal technologies to keep them running as cool as possible. meaning you as gamers can start to push boundaries.
Lenovo Legion Y730 and Y530 Laptops
With gaming on the go becoming an ever popular venture, Lenovo wanted to produce something that could suit your lunch time gaming session, and your afternoon business meeting. This is why they’ve gone very sleek with their new laptop models.
Made from aluminium, the Y730 laptop is covered in an anodised space grey covering and features a near borderless, full IPS displays with optional 144Hz screens, in either 15″ or 17″ variations. The Y530 has a slightly different design with a top cover texture and an LED radiating from the O in the Legion emblem. The y730 also features up to 16GB Corsair DDR4 memory.
Both laptops feature up to an nVidia Geforce 1050TI GPUs and up to the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processors. Of course, specification will be on a build by build basis, but we’ll have more info on that later. The Corsair iCue RGB backlit keyboard boast a 1ms response time, seven macro keys and it’s the first range of laptops to offer Dolby Atmos sound for complete immersion.

The cube towers interested me, in terms of the portability that they can offer. Although no screen, as they are basically desktop machines in a tiny 19 litre cube package, the useful carry handle on top means that you can carry it from place to place with ease.
The two cube machines can sport up to an nVidia GTX 1060 GPU, an 8th generation Intel i7 processor as well as 32GB DDR4 memory. A portable powerhouse that can even handle VR gaming to say the least. With new dual channel thermal ventilation, your components will stay super cool when gaming. Oh, and there’s some beautiful RGB too to show off the components.
Lenovo Legion T730 and T530
Notice the trend in model number right? Anyway, these two are tower machines, and are probably the most powerful of the three machines here. The T530 has red illuminating from its vent points while the T730 has full RGB lights and a big side window to showcase your components.
Both machines are fully customisable, with up to 8th generation i7 processors and nVidia 1060 GPUs. They come with up to 32GB DDR4 memory as well as up to 2TB of HDD or 2x 512GB SSD storage space for all of your AAA titles.
What is interesting is the T730 can come with option liquid cooling, but it wasn’t confirmed if this was like an AIO cooler or a full loop system and pump. There are also some added extra Lenovo gaming peripherals available like a monitor, mouse and keyboard that you can bolt on as added extras.
