Is the y720 With the i5 7300hq and 8gb ram recommed too for gaming?

Lenovo is good if you want a laptop with built in malware that will physically fall apart after a couple of months.
Android Gamer (13 days ago)
Alex thanks for your opinion
Alex (13 days ago)
If you want to buy a laptop go with the new Dell XPS 15 or the new Surface Book 2. Stay away from Lenovo unless you like buying a new laptop every 6 months.
Alex (13 days ago)
Because I had the lenovo Y50 and it was riddled with malware from the start and then couple of months passed and the whole laptop physically starting breaking. I thought I was the only one and my friend had a Y70 and same problem. And the malware pops right back up if you ever factory reset the laptop. And now with more pressure from China Lenovo going to increase their malware.

Alex how do u know that
Jure Matković (1 month ago)
Just want to give you tip guys. If some models (y720) have problems with temperatures it is because of poor thermal paste. Reapply thermal paste and u will solve problem. Also for those who expirienced bad peformance change Power settings from power saver to high peformance. Sry for bad eng, i hope it helped.

FearLess (3 months ago)
I'm really confused, do you get 5-6 hours of battery life on the 4k model, how much does the fhd have then? Also other reviews mentioned that it has 4 hours on the fhd and also 4 on the 4k how does that work out, surely fhd should have more. Also would you recommend this at 1030 usd with only a 256 gb ssd and 8gb ram. Also others have reported much better thermals and less fan noise
Theresa Curnow (3 months ago)
I’m wondering how much performance would suffer gaming going with the 8GB version? All reviews seem to be for 16GB.

Perfect!! That’s exactly what I needed to know. I have to buy 2 for avid teenage gamers so I don’t want to spend anymore than necessary. They are used to desktops but gaming laptops have come a long way and they’ll need portability for college soon. Thanks very much for fast reply!! :)
Matthew Moniz (3 months ago)
Very little ! If it's for gaming you won't notice much of a difference. However, if you're someone with a lot of tabs open and doing photoshop work, you'll want 16.

Mohammad Natsheh (3 months ago)
Great review as always, I bought this laptop based on your recommendation. But after just 20 days or so of using, I have this problem with the screen, if I close the lid while it's on and open it back again, the screen turns gray and becomes unusable so I have to restart my laptop again to use it. I updated the bios version, all the drivers but still nothing happened, am I the only one who has this problem guys? I would appreciate some help.
Mohammad Natsheh (2 months ago)
Matthew Moniz thank you for your reply Matthew, I solved it by rolling back the display driver.

Can we make it clear that NOBODY wants the stupid red/black theme on laptops? I am a "young thugga kid" and even I think it just looks stupid. Really cuts down the options for laptops in the 1060 range.

Hi Matthew! Thank you for the review. I was planning on this until I read about the Dell 7577 a couple of days ago which also has GTX 1060 and Thunderbolt3 now. Would you be reviewing it anytime soon and also a comparison if possible? Thank you!
Krishnakumar Raghu (2 months ago)
I decided to get dell 7577. It's got a better build and also in my location, i didn't get the RGB lighting with Legion Y720. It was too much red for me.
Sai Nivedh Vallala (2 months ago)
Which one did u buy?
Krishnakumar Raghu (3 months ago)
Sahil Chandhok Sure. But it's a lot .7 kg lighter. That's the reason I'm thinking about it.
Sahil Chandhok (3 months ago)
Krishnakumar Raghu The Dell 7577 has the gtx 1060 max q which is a weaker version of a gtx 1060 found in this model. The main purpose of the max q is to save power. It prefers saving power over performance.

Paul Wolfer (3 months ago)
I've been looking at gaming laptops for work (as well as play), doing CAD and 3d Modeling. Would you suggest 4k monitor in this circumstance. I've been leaning towards the Dell 7567 w/ i7, 16gb ram, 512 SSD and 4k Monitor.
Turdbo Mitch (4 months ago)
Hi Matt,I really enjoy your channel!I am planning to buy either the Acer preditor Helios 300 or the Lenovo Y720. The Acer is currently $1049 and the Lenovo $1055. Is there any major deciding factor between the two? They are both almost identical in price, but are they identical in stats at this price point? I'd love to see a comparison video between the two. Or maybe just a verdict from you and a reason why. Regards Mitch.
Matthew Moniz (4 months ago)
It depends if you need a more colour accurate display than the Lenovo Y720 makes more sense since you can buy it in 4k. If you don't the helios 300 is just as good and cheaper

My Dell Inspirion 17R N7110 weighs 10 pounds And I took that thing everywhere The only thing a PC has to have IMO is Performance.
Krash #42 (3 months ago)
Thunderbolt 3 is more or less a "future ready" version of USB-C, it can output both video (2X 4k 60Hz screens) and data, has enough speed to handle things like an external graphics card or an external dock with many usbs and display connections on it, so its importance really depends on whether you will need it. For example I have a drawing tablet with 4k screen, if I want to connect it to my laptop, I can choose to use either one mini displayport cable (that can only output 2k resolution) plus one usb cable for pen & touch, or just one thunderbolt cable for 4k and pen & touch
Krash #42 (3 months ago)
Really depending on if you want to spend $100 to $200 for better speaker, better built with metal top+bottom and TB3. Y720 is a bit heavy compared with Helios 300 (similar size), the keyboard is comfortable though the layout needs a little time to get used to (helios has full keyboard), the standard 1080P screen is probably the weakest part, it's IPS but color and brightness are just mediocre. Overall I'm very happy with my Y720, does everything I want it to, though a bit heavy, it feels safe to carry around.

After having a 4k screen laptop for the last year and a half - can't see myself ever going back. Sure scaling is a bit off in Windows 10, but it's a game changer when editing in Premiere or creating content in After Effects, PS, etc...this is especially huge when on the road (or when I want to edit on the road...or couch). Also, in addition - close friend has the previous years Y-series, and it's been a mess. Plastic breaking, keyboard issues. Does run well though. Sounds like they addressed the keyboard (mushy) issues and the build issues in this iteration. Great review though Matt!

Marshall Chandra The wasd keys can get warm but not hot but the metal part above it conducrs a lot of heat but you don't normally touch it. Temps internally don't get too hot I recommend a laptop cooler for long gaming sessions. Heating overall is handled bicely and if you really need it you ca. crank up the fans yourself. Recommended that coolboost is enabled tho keeps it cooled well.
