Intel has just made two separate 10th generation CPU announcements — Comet Lake and Ice Lake — and laptops based on these new chips will most likely hit store shelves in India at around the same time. That should be in a couple of months, and it is bound to cause a lot of confusion for buyers. While both these new lineups are for thin-and-light laptops, we can still expect to see 9th and 8th Gen branding on more powerful machines for a bit longer.

Lenovo Legion Y740 (81UH006YIN) Summary

The Lenovo Legion Y740 has an understated design for a gaming laptop, which we really like. The all-aluminium chassis feels very durable and sturdy. The lid has a vertically aligned logo with an RGB LED in the tristar symbol in the letter ‘O'. We have more RGB LEDs in the exhaust vents on the sides and back, and for the power button and keyboard.

The 15.6-inch IPS display on the Legion Y740 has a full-HD resolution (1920x1080), a 144Hz refresh rate, 500nits of brightness, and narrow bezels on three of its four sides, which makes games and content a bit more immersive. It also support HDR content. 

The Legion Y740 ships with an Intel Core i7-9750H CPU, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 1TB PCIe NVMe Samsung SSD, and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU with 6GB of GDDR6 memory. Lenovo's homegrown management app is called Vantage, and this gives you real-time snapshots of the CPU, GPU, RAM, and storage usage, along with other tools.

Overall performance is excellent in games and multitasking. The stereo speakers also get decently loud, although we noticed mild distortion at full volume. Even on battery power, the Legion Y740 runs quite warm. The keys and palm rest area stay relatively cool but the bottom gets warm pretty much all the time.

The Legion Y740 ran for just 55 minutes in our Battery Eater Pro benchmark, which is quite poor. With basic usage, which involved working within a Web browser with the display brightness at around 40 percent, we managed to go a little more than 2 hours.
