Stylish and savage evolution
Gaming's evolution continues
The Lenovo Legion laptop design has evolved even further to match the two sides of today's gamers—stylish for work, savage for play. Housing epic specs in a precision-cut, all-aluminum chassis, the 17.3" Legion Y740 sports a clean look, weighs only 6.17 lbs / 2.8 kg, measures only .91" / 23 mm, and features Corsair® iCUE ambient system lighting. This laptop is engineered to defy expectations and shatter limits.

Focus on the game, not the bezels
The Legion Y740 laptop's 17.3" display provides a captivating visual experience, thanks to bezels that are considerably thinner than previous generations. You can keep your eyes where the action is—the FHD graphics rendering in more than 2 million pixels at refresh rates up to 144 Hz, with brightness levels up to 300 nits. You'll get an amazingly immersive experience from the tear-free video of NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology and software enabled Dolby® Vision™ High Dynamic Range (HDR).
Your eyes deserve Dolby
Don't just look at your favorite games—be truly moved by them. Software enabled Dolby Vision™ HDR transforms your gaming experience on the Legion Y740 with ultravivid imaging—incredible brightness, contrast, and color that bring your favorite gaming titles to life before your eyes. It achieves this astonishing image quality through cinema-inspired HDR technology that can deliver billions of colors to your laptop wherever you are. The result is a refined, lifelike image that will make you forget you are looking at a screen.
The Coldfront is here
Heat—the nemesis of gaming performance—is no longer a concern, thanks to Legion Coldfront. Coldfront brings the latest features that a dual-channel thermal system can provide, including individual CPU and GPU cooling for cooler system temperatures, four thermal vents for improved airflow, dedicated heat syncs for cooler keyboard temperatures, and 70 individual fan blades per channel to reduce system noise.
Time to strike
Intense firefights require the most responsive of controls, and the Legion Y740 keyboard delivers best-in-class gaming controls to give you the edge over any opponent. Full-sized and top of the line, this keyboard delivers 100% anti-ghosting, Corsair® iCUE RGB lighting, less than 1 ms response time, and more for ultimate control of your system. Additionally, the keyboard is water repellent to protect against accidental spills. Further, the Legion Y740 features Windows Precision drivers with gesture control for effortless input whether at work or play.
Go inside the action
Dolby Atmos® pulls you into the game with powerful, moving audio that sweeps all around and above you with amazing precision and realism. A leap forward from surround sound, it gives you a competitive edge via the new Sound Radar overlay. Know where specific game sounds are coming from and hear audio that heightens your sense of awareness and immerses you in a more intense gaming experience. Further, the Legion Y740 comes with a custom-engineered Dolby® Atmos Sound Bar for Gaming, for immersive audio with or without headphones.
