REVIEWED: Lenovo Legion Y540

Packed with incredible performance typically only available from desktops, 9th Gen Intel® Core™ laptop processors deliver desktop-caliber gaming that you can take anywhere. With up to 4.5GHz Turbo, 6 cores, and 12 threads, Legion laptops powered by these processors have enough power to handle demanding AAA games.

Gaming has a new look, no more bulky laptops, clunky chargers and outdated overly-flashy looks. If 2020 has brought us anything, it’s shown us that simplicity is key. Today we’re going to be talking about one of Lenovo’s smartest additions to their gaming range, the Legion Y540.

This sleek, portable 15.6-inch laptop pushes gaming performance to a new level. Its latest-generation specs guarantee you serious power. Thermally optimized to run cooler and quieter with a full-sized white-backlit keyboard, the Lenovo Legion Y540 Laptop is primed for those who demand gaming wherever life takes them. And that’s exactly what we appreciate, a lot of people are demanding more with less. So a sleek design that can pack a punch means everything.

We were going to go for the “Winter is coming” joke, but that’s a little far gone, we will say that no one likes a laptop that heats up, it makes gaming stressful, luckily with Lenovo it’s no longer a concern, thanks to Legion Coldfront. Coldfront brings the latest features that a dual-channel thermal system can provide, including individual CPU and GPU cooling for cooler system temperatures, four thermal vents for improved airflow, dedicated heat syncs for cooler keyboard temperatures, and 70 individual fan blades per channel to reduce system noise.

The Legion Triple Display Support System utilizes the HDMI 2.0, MiniDisplay, and Type-C ports, allowing the Y540 to connect up to three displays simultaneously for maximum immersion and control. Further, their rear I/O dashboard helps with cable management, keeping your space clean and organized for maximum focus on the game.

Overall the Legion Y540 has shown us that Lenovo has come a long way with their gaming range and most of all that you don’t have to have big money to buy into the gaming lifestyle at an affordable amount. With its thin bezels, the Y540 packs more than 2 million pixels into a near-edgeless 15-inch FHD display. Combined with up to 144 Hz refresh rate, 300 nits of brightness, and an IPS Antiglare screen, this laptop brings your favourite games to life, for immersive gameplay on the go. There’s also Dolby Atmos® audio which makes sounds clear and realistic.
