The Lenovo Legion Y740 boasts a sleek, business-like design that doesn't call too much attention to itself. It's a welcome departure from more garish, RGB-infused designs, and the notebook looks like it could almost blend in in the office.
The Legion Y740 features a 1080p 144Hz Dolby Vision display with NVIDIA G-Sync support. It's powered by an Intel Core i7-8750H and a GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q, while the dual-fan cooling system channels air through four illuminated vents.
Lenovo has worked an illuminated Legion logo into the branding on the lid, one of the small design decisions that show that this is still a gaming laptop at heart.
The keyboard is flanked by fairly thick borders, but Lenovo has also included two dedicated macro keys on the left and buttons for adjusting the keyboard backlight.
One thing I really like is the illuminated labels for the connectors at the rear of the laptop. It's a small touch, but it helps improve the overall user experience and adds additional flair to the laptop's design.
Most of the ports are located at the back, and the left and right edges house just one USB 3.1 (Gen 1) Type-A port, one Thunderbolt 3 connector, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Finally, cool air is drawn in through the vents in the sides and hot air is expelled through the openings at the back, which ensures that you aren't disturbed by the heat coming out of the notebook.
The Legion Y740 starts at US$1,979 and will be available in February.
