Lady-gamer and graphic artist here! I am absolutely LOVING my new Lenovo laptop. I love the styling, being sleek and understated and not looking like a, shall we say, transforming robot. After weeks of careful research it came out ahead as the best bang-for-your-buck gaming/performance laptop and it completely lives up to the hype! The only con is the power brick is brutally huge and heavy. I don't expect insane battery life from a gaming laptop so I bought this knowing I'd use it plugged in for games, but most places I would use a laptop (like cafes, airports, hotels) these days have outlets wherever there's wifi. Perhaps a smaller power brick option will be made available down the road, I'd happily buy it. However the battery life is just fine for graphic design work without being plugged in thanks to the power saving secondary gpu! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Love my new rig!
you can carry it anywhere with ease
it's the right size and weight, you can carry it anywhere with ease, it looks and feels great. It is very easy to understand, so it is also good for someone with little computer experience. I use it for audiovisual work, it has very good graphics and it is fast. It is a very good option. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Incredible Performance, Gaming with Power!!
The build quality with the Lenovo Legion Y740 is amazing. Love the metal build and the RGB everywhere is a nice touch. Feels smooth to type and has no flex to the keyboard or screen. Sound quality and screen display/brightness meet well beyond expectations. I wish there was a numpad but key travel distance is good so that makes up for it.

I love this laptop, I recommend it for everyone!!!
This laptop is great, it fits all my needs, including gaming, working, house use, etc. The battery life is great and it lasts me the whole day. The camera has good resolution. Fans are very quiet, screen is bright and with the anti reflective screen so I can also use my laptop when I want to be outside in the sun. The displays 144hz is incredibly smooth, it is just a beautiful display. The keyboard layout takes a few days to get used to, but once you get used to it, this will be THE BEST KEYBOARD YOU WILL EVER USE. I didn't type so fast before I used this keyboard, but now I type faster then ever. I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD!!! I love how you can change the CPU performance from quiet, balance, and performance modes. The cool settings in the Lenovo Vantage application are really good. I recommend this laptop to everyone looking for a very good laptop for an extremely good price.

Perfect bang for the buck!!
As a computer expert I couldn't be more pleased with this machine!! Nearly perfect laptop option for those who want the most bang for your buck.Get the RTX version with g-sync, you won't be disappointed. G-sync is highly relevant on a machine like this, even if you go for the 17" with RTX2080. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Best Laptop I've owned!
The Lenovo Legion y740 exceeded my expectations. Its a perfect laptop not only for gaming but to use for college and can run everything you throw at it smoothly including Solid works. I would highly recommend the y740 if you're looking to get a new computer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Lenovo Legion Y740 15.6” RTX2060
Ok, so sometimes if left on for awhile without use the screen will go black and won't turn back on unless you restart the computer. Nothing serious though. Now, with that out of the way, I LOVE IT! It's super powerful, and runs everything I throw at it. The temps are also super good! At max load, temps rarely even touches 90. After an undervolt to my cpu and gpu it runs low 80s. It looks spicy too guys! This thing is a sexy looking machine. Very sleek and business like, perfect for my college classes and stuff. Also, I love the layout of the IO. It's so clean having all the cables run out the back. Anyways, I could go on forever, so I'll stop here. I've had it for a month, and I'm VERY happy with it so far. Would definitely recommend.

A SOLID CONTENDER IN IT'S CATEGORY
I purchased this with an RTX 2060 to replace my now ancient 8 year old Sager notebook. It did me well, but the keyboard was dying and I need something reliable to bring with me on TDYs and deployments. I recently sold a GTX 1080 TI desktop that I built, so I have experience with high performance PC's, and enjoy premium tech. I did a lot of research, to include older GTX model notebooks, since I wanted the best bang for my buck. My final decision led me to a Y740 for multiple reasons that I'll share below. I'll start with build quality and design. It's superb. The metal body gives it an expensive and clean look with good feel. It will attract fingerprints and smudges, so have a cleaning cloth nearby, but overall never looks "dirty". The individually lit RGB keyboard, exhaust fans, and logo are a great touch without being too much. It's a gaming notebook with classy looks. Corsair iCUE software takes a minute to figure out but works great. I also appreciate the hard keys for dimming, and even turning off all illumination. Even the rear ports are lit (non-RGB) for easy identification. One thing I did notice is the numerical keys are not evenly lit, but just by a small amount. The symbols are brighter above the numbers. Small nitpick but worth noting. The keys themselves could be a little more clicky, but still have a quality press to them. Not a problem. (During this review, my spacebar started making a squeaking sound when I press it, but only right in the middle. Mildly annoying but I'll have to see if it continues..) The screen is sharp and colorful. 1920 x 1080 is plenty good for it's size, and 144hz with G-SYNC just sweetens the experience. I don't have too much IPS glow or back light bleed on my unit. I do wish the peak brightness was just a little higher. It's plenty for indoors, but if I ever find myself outside it may be desirable. The thin top and side bezels give it a nice modern appeal. I don't use the camera, but I can understand the complaints of it being placed under the screen. I did have initial issues with the sound. The speakers themselves perform well, even in a down-firing arrangement, but I was experiencing bad distortion at around 40 volume and beyond. It was due to the Dolby Atmos software installed. I had to manually tweak the EQ and drop lower frequencies way down to fix it. All is well now. Performance is all I can ask for from a notebook, especially one as thin, light, and portable as this. Booting to Windows takes mere seconds with the PCIe NVMe SSD. I also installed a secondary HDD for media storage, salvaged from my old laptop. The RTX 2060 performs admirably and in my opinion is by far the best bang for your buck out of the options. Since it isn't a Max-Q design, it's power limitations aren't crippled as much as the 2070 or 2080. The biggest benefit of upgrading it is an additional 2GB of VRAM for better visuals, so it's up to you if that makes it worthwhile. I prefer FPS over anything else and usually end up dropping most settings to low. While gaming, it will absolutely get warm to the touch, especially the keyboard. I put the fans to max right before I load a game. They aren't quiet by any means but I'm usually wearing a headset and don't notice anyway. Stock fan speeds in Windows are a total non-issue. Overall very pleased with this purchase. There's other things I could mention but I think this is long enough to get the main positives/negatives out there. If you're looking for Razer performance, build quality, and design without the Razer tax, look no further. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
