Today, Lenovo is selling the quad-core Legion Y520 gaming laptop for just $949.99. Apply coupon code “HOMEEXTRA5” during checkout, and you’ll save $50 off the list price.
Spec-wise, this configuration features a seventh-generation quad-core 2.8GHz Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU, a dedicated Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 video card (with 3GB of memory), 8GB of DDR4 RAM, a 1TB 5400RPM hard drive, a 128GB solid-state drive, Bluetooth 4.1, and 802.11b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support. With internals like these, you won’t have any trouble running most recent games.
As for the 15.6-inch display, it benefits from in-plane switching, an anti-glare coating, a full HD resolution of 1,920 by 1,080, and LED backlighting. And with the included HDMI port, you can easily use an HDTV or a PC monitor for a big-screen gaming experience instead.
While many gaming laptops are extraordinarily bulky, the Legion Y520 fares well in the portability department. It measures about 1.1 inches thick, weighs about 5.3 pounds, and features a three-cell 45WHr battery that can deliver up to four hours of battery life.
Windows 10 Home (64-bit) comes installed automatically, so all of Microsoft’s best gaming features will be available to you from the jump. Xbox One game streaming, cross-play with consoles, game DVR, and DirectX 12 come together to make this the single best OS choice for gaming.
