Lenovo unveils its Latest Legion of Powerful Devices

On June 28, the global technology and innovation leader Lenovo has geared up for another big year following its stellar performance during its fiscal year 2018-19; it recently launched its new products.

Lenovo takes pride in its Legion gaming lineup. In 2019, the Philippines saw a big bang through the opening of the first exclusive Legion Concept Store in SM City North EDSA, and shortly after, Legion was a co-presenter of GameCon 2019, one of the country’s biggest gaming conventions.

The release of new devices and the formation of the Legion PH community, the Legion lineup is now the fastest-growing gaming notebook brand in the country with a per monthly brand share statistics from GfK. 

Here are the latest products or devices that will surely attract local gamers as well international gamers:

Considered to be a Gaming Beast, the Legion Y740 has NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 graphics card and 9th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-9750H Processor. It can handle today’s graphics-demanding games with ease.

Intel says this will provide gamers 56% higher frames per second and 38% faster game turn times while content creators will enjoy a 54% speed boost when editing 4K videos. The device has all-aluminum chassis and thin bezels, the Y740 breaks the convention of what gaming devices look like with its sleek design. It is available for PHP 119,995.

Also, it is releasing the Lenovo IdeaPad L340 gaming laptop for those on the lookout for their first gaming PC. It is available in either Intel Core i7 with +128GB SSD (PHP 59,995) or Intel Core i5 (PHP 49,995), respectively. 

The IdeaPad L340 gaming laptop is one of the most affordable devices out in the market equipped with an NVIDIA® GeForce GTX™ 1650 graphics card. Three variants of the Legion Y540 are also in the lineup. Leading them is one equipped with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 graphics card with 6GB VRAM, 1TB SSD storage, 16GB RAM, and an Intel® Core™ i7-9750H processor.

Complementing these are Legion peripherals and accessories designed to offer the complete gaming experience. One of these is the mammoth-sized Legion Y44w gaming monitor that has a 43.4-inch curved (1800R) display with a 144Hz refresh rate. 

All devices come with Lenovo’s two-year Premium Care Support, which includes 24/7 support from Lenovo’s senior tech resources; Zero Tolerance to Dead Pixel, a service that repairs displays even with only a single dead pixel, and two-year onsite warranty wherein Lenovo’s staff will go directly to the customer’s location for any troubleshooting needs.

But, personally, what attracted me the most is the Yoga and IdeaPad lineups.

Why so? It’s because of the iconic watchband hinges and convertible features. The Yoga and IdeaPad lines are considered to be the most portable devices available in the market. 

Last year, Lenovo bade farewell to thick and bulky notebooks as it transformed all Yoga and IdeaPad lineups into Ultrabooks with only less than 20mm thick and weigh below 2kg. IdeaPad and Yoga Ultrabooks has a total of 16 Ultrabook models. That’s what Lenovo has in store for its market. 

The new Yoga S940 (PHP 115,995) is the banner device for the Yoga series. It has a sleek 12.2 mm and weighs only 1.2 kg. It is the world’s first laptop to have Contour Glass that wraps around the display for smoother edges and minimizes the appearance of its already thin bezels. 

Along with Yoga S940 is the Yoga S730. It is a recommended device designed to be an ideal travel companion with a weight of 1.1 kg, the thinness of 11.9mm, and its cooling system can pull air through secondary vents hidden in the keyboard.

The upcoming IdeaPads, on the other hand, is led by the IdeaPad S540, which is available in six variants. The most premium comes with NVIDIA® GeForce GTX™ 1650 graphics card and an Intel® Core™ i7-8565U processor (PHP 69,995). 

The ultra-slim IdeaPad S340, the two-in-one convertible laptop IdeaPad C340, and the powerful everyday laptop IdeaPad S145 are also arriving, with higher variants with a Microsoft Office Perpetual bundle worth PHP 5,995.

These devices also come with Lenovo’s two-year Premium Care Support, which includes 24/7 support from Lenovo’s senior tech resources; Zero Tolerance to Dead Pixel, a service that repairs displays even with only a single dead pixel, and two-year onsite warranty.
