Lenovo releases two new laptops from its Y530 series gaming laptops this month, which are the Y530 Custom series and the Y530 Evolved series. Both laptops grant the ability to handle today’s latest games, but there are some notable differences that are worth pointing out.
First up we have the Legion Y530 Build Your Own model, which is currently being offered for $749.99 on the website with finance options. The other model is the Legion Y530 Gaming Evolved, which is being offered for $849.99 with finance options. The Gaming Evolved model typically goes for just over a grand, and other outlets have prices slightly above and below that.
The Legion Y530 Build Your Own model is 15.6-inches FHD (1920 x 1080), and is sleeker to allow for easier portability. The insides include an Intel Core 15-8300H 4 core processor, 2.30GHz, with up to 4.0GHz and Turbo Boost support with an 8MB Cach. Windows 10 Home 64-bit is the operating system, and it also has 8GB DDR4 RAM, 1TB Hard Disk Drive, 7200rpm, 2.5″ SATA3 and built-in NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 with 4GB of VRAM.
The Legion Y530 Gaming Evolved also features a 15.6-inch FHD display (1920 x 1080), supporting up to 144Hz refresh rate and 300nits of brightness. It has Intel’s high-performance 8th generation Intel Core mobile processors i7-8750H 6 2.20GHz, up to 4.10GHz with Turbo Boost, and 9MB cache. The operating system is Windows 10 Home 64-bit, with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 4GB and a battery with up to 5 hours of life. It also comes equipped with 16GB DDR4 2666MHz and 126GB Solid State Drive PCle + 1 TB 5400 RPM.
Those worried about these things possibly overheating can rest assured that that’s unlikely to happen. Both of the laptops feature a dual channel thermal optimized system with individual CPU and GPU cooling. There are also four thermal vents to ensure it runs both cooler and quieter.
