Epic laptop deals are going strong at Lenovo this week with discounts on Legion Y545 and Y740 gaming laptops.
Lenovo is also slashing up to $290 off Lenovo Y740 gaming laptops with prices starting at $1,449. Even better, Lenovo coupon code, "EXTRAFIVE" gives you an additional 5% discount.
The Lenovo Legion Y545 is one of the best gaming laptops you can get.
It packs a 15.6-inch 1080p IPS display, a Core i7-9750H CPU, 16GB of RAM, 1TB HDD, a secondary 256GB SSD and a GTX 1660 Ti GPU with 6GB of graphics memory.
In our Lenovo Legion Y545 review, we were impressed by its elegant design, comfy keyboard and great gaming performance.
Design-wise, the Legion Y545's industrial design and clean, attractive lines present a nice contrast to many of its flashier counterparts. Its dark iron-gray aluminum lid has a similar appeal to an entry-level Mercedes-Benz or BMW.
Weighing 5.3 pounds and measuring 14.2 x 10.5 x 1~1.1-inches, the Legion Y545 is just as heavy as the Dell G3 15 (2019) (5.3 pounds, 14.4 x 10 x 0.8 inches). It's slightly heavier and larger than the HP 15 Gaming Laptop 15 (4.9 pounds and 14.25.14 x 10.144 x 0.9 inches) and Asus ROG Zephyrus G GA502 (4.5 pounds, 14.4 x 9.9 x 0.8 inches).
In real world testing, we watched the trailer for the Fast and Furious and the colors were vivid on the laptop's 15-inch 1080p anti-glare display. Explosions and high-speed chases were also clear and beautiful. As for gaming, the rendering when we played Grand Theft Auto 5 was buttery-smooth.
In terms of sound, the Legion Y545's Harman/Kardon-tuned stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos software delivered excellent sound quality. The volume was loud enough to fill a small room with a good amount of bass for depth.
Performance-wise, the gaming rig's 2.6-GHz 9th Gen Intel Core i7-9750H processor and 16GB of RAM never struggled. It even handled resource-draining Google Chrome while running 25 tabs, including one playing Avengers: End Game on Disney Plus with no hiccups.
At $510 off, the Lenovo Legion Y545 is a solid buy if you're looking for an affordable gaming laptop to get you through quarantine. Lenovo's laptop sale ends soon, so act fast.
