Just a heads up, use password !EXCLUSIVE57 to get access to Lenovo's employee pricing program , lots of great discounts on their for other computers etc. Struggling to locate the link to take you directly to this laptop, but click on gaming laptops and it'll pop up :-)

That thing is ugly.... god damn
Pitty it's not 17.3 inch
8gb ram.. Geek version of skip leg day
You will not be disappointed with the GTX 1060, I am so happy with mine
Ps I paid £1699.00 but that was MSI.
Sexy display, sexy graphics card but what's up with that ram? Seriously ruined it. Still hot for that price.

Can't you just upgrade the RAM?

Good review of this machine here...

notebookcheck.net/Len…tml

The review contains this, so assume you CAN'T upgrade the RAM yourself!

Update 06/14/2017: One of our readers pointed out that, according to the manual of the Y720, all maintenance works by the user are prohibited. This includes the SSD, RAM, and the HDD. This was also confirmed by the Lenovo support.


The Y720 is by my reckoning, £270 more expensive that the £899.99 Y520. Is the Y720 better than the Y520? Yes. Is it £270 worth of better? IMO, probably not. In my experience, nothing ages as badly as a gaming laptop and paying 'extra' now always looks like a bad investment, a couple of years down the track.

Are we talking speed or capacity, because 8GB is fine for the sort of gaming you'll be doing on this machine.

Can't really call something that plummets in value so badly an "investment", even in the context you're using it.

If people cared about getting value for money they wouldn't buy a "gaming" laptop. They'd just build their own gaming desktop where they'd get something powerful and with greater room for expandability.

Presumably they want portability. In some ways I get it, but as I don't really consider a near 16 inch and 3.2 kg "laptop" as portable I'm not overly sure. Especially not with a poor battery life while actually gaming. Some folks might be better off with an mITX gaming rig.

Gaming laptops have a place, but I don't think there are many people that see them as a good value prospect.
I haven't got the space for a full desktop gaming set up, plus I plan on taking it to a mates for some gaming seshes. Portability doesn't have to mean a lightweight laptop, a laptop that can fit in messenger bag is portable in my eyes, plus in terms of battery duration I don't mind either, I doubt I'll be using it somewhere where I can't find a power source, at the moment I play ps4 and regularly have mates over who literally bring their tvs, ps4 etc to have a fun gaming night.
I'm not questioning the fact that a desktop build gets more bang for buck, but for the price range of a laptop that suits my needs I was curious if there's better out there?
The y520 apparently has a much cheaper plasticky build which drew me towards this model.
Cant use the code on mobile or pc (edge & chrome) has it expired?

It's valid for 3 more days i believe. You need to follow the link, it will ask for the code as a password to log onto the site. Then the prices should be accurate.

Just keeps saying 'Its not you it's us'

I'll again later.
Try a different browser or something. I helped my mate buy this deal yesterday too and it definitely went through. I think it can be intermittent.
8GB of ram is plenty, not sure what everyone above is talking about but 16GB for gaming is overkill unless you plan to be recording and uploading whilst playing. Even for VR only 8GB is required. Anything more is simply future proofing.
