CNET First Look
Lenovo gets a whole new look for its Legion gaming laptops and desktopsGet ready for a new buttoned-down look for a laptop and handy handles on desktops.
Lenovo is kicking off the E3 Season with a big update which line of gaming PC's, not always the first name you think of when it comes to PC gaming, Lenovo it's actually been making some pretty good systems at pretty good prices for years, what they lacked was maybe a certain aesthetic sizzle Fortunately, a few of these laptops and desktops are getting a serious design makeover. The Legion Y730 is looking much less like a gaming laptop and much more like a slick, professional crossover machine. It's got a dark grey, all aluminum body, with thin vessels around the screen, a must have for a high end laptop these days. It looks a lot less like a gaming rig and more like something you'd see hanging out in a hipster coffee shop all day. The only real nod to the gaming aesthetic is a light-up redesigned logo on the back. You get Dolby Atmos support too, which is becoming more popular in high-end audio systems. The close cousin, the Lenovo Y530, gets a similar makeover, but with a more gamery vibe. It's also a little cheaper, with a plastic body and without the multicolored backlit keyboard. If you're still an old-fashioned, let's say, okay, traditional Desktop gamer. There's a new Legion tower and Legion queue. Both have big handles for carrying around to you know, a Land part. And you can configure them with transparent side panels, cool lights and even liquid cooling.
