It offers strong performance for your buck and for a limited time you can use coupon code "HOMEEXTRA5" to drop its price to $949.99. That's $50 off and the best price you'll find for this configuration.

That buys you a 15.6-inch 1080p IPS LCD, 2.8GHz Core i7-7700HQ quad-core processor, 8GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive with 128GB SSD, and a very capable Nvidia GTX 1060 3GB graphics card.

Clearly, this isn't a budget machine, but more of a mid-tier laptop that provides just the right horsepower for everyday gamers.

At 5.6 pounds, the Y520 isn't the most travel-friendly machine, but its size also gives it a sturdy feel, which makes it the type of laptop you can cram into a backpack without much concern.

The keyboard is super-comfortable and it even features a dedicated button to record gameplay. As for the graphics card, the GTX 1060 is VR-ready, which means it works with the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Although it costs more than the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti, we found the GTX 1060 offers a lot more performance for the money, especially for gamers. 

That makes this the perfect machine for anyone who wants a gaming laptop that can take on any task you throw its way.
