Lenovo Legion Y530 81FV0002US Review

Lenovo is trying to make some headway into the very competitive gaming laptop market with their newest laptop which is the Lenovo Legion Y530 81FV0002US. This laptop comes packed with high end hardware to handle the heavy demands from modern games and below we will look at some of its key benefits and downsides to see if it might be the right choice for you.


Processor: Intel Core i7

Memory: 16 GB of RAM

Storage: 1 TB SATA

Screen: 15.6 Inches

OS: Windows 10


– There is no lack of power in this laptop due to it having the powerful Intel Core i7 processor and plenty of memory at 16 GB
– The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is included and is easily capable of running the high graphic demands of modern games
– Storage space is great with a large 1 TB SATA drive
– Includes a backlit keyboard which is a great addition to any laptop
– It is slightly on the heavy side when comparing to average 15.6 inch laptops but for a gaming laptop 5 pounds is quite good and will still keep you decently mobile


– Most gaming laptops include a pure SSD drive, instead Lenovo has went with a SATA/SSD hybrid. While adding the additional SSD storage helps it is quite the same so it does lack some performance in this category
– System memory is not expandable from the 16 GB that is included
– No optical drive is included in this model


We may be a little disappointed with the lack of a full SSD drive but otherwise it has great specs to give gamers some very decent performance.
