It looks like Lenovo s toe-dip in the gaming laptop market has been successful enough to make the company s gaming aspirations more permanent.
Announced at CES on Tuesday, Lenovo s gaming laptops have been spun off to a Legion sub-brand—which is definitely more fitting than the IdeaPad designation of the 2016 models.
The new Y520 and Y720 models will be the first to bear the Legion name.
Lenovo s external design shifts are probably more noteworthy than the internal component updates.
When I reviewed the Y50 in 2015, I noted that it was an excellent bargain laptop hampered by an abysmal screen.
Lenovo s taken that criticism to heart, and includes an IPS display on both the Y520 and Y720, with the option of including a 4K screen on the Y720.
