An alternative to the Legion Y700 series that delivers mid-range performance for a respectable price.
Alongside its Legion Y500- and Y700-series gaming laptops, Lenovo has released the 15-inch Legion Y7000 and Y7000P as slightly bulkier alternatives that keep the price down yet offer respectable performance. In the face of Lenovo hardware refreshes that involve RTX 20-series graphics cards (GPU) and a significant price hike, the Y7000 is a welcome addition for anyone who wants to keep things somewhere around the $1,000 mark.
It can outrun the 15-inch Y730 yet has a similar price, and while it doesn't have all the same flashy features — no customizable RGB lighting, no overclocking, no physical buttons on the touchpad, no Thunderbolt 3 — you're paying more for raw power here than for anything else. And the Y7000 still has a fair share of tricks up its sleeve that keep it from completely devolving into a device that would fit in better three or four years ago.
Lenovo loaned Windows Central a Legion Y7000 model — there are also Y7000P models available with less storage and RAM for about $1,000 — with an Intel Core i7-8750H processor (CPU), 16 GB of RAM, a 1 TB hard-disk drive (HDD) coupled with a 256 GB solid-state drive (SSD), and a NVIDIA GTX 1060 GPU. It costs about $1,250.
