Bangkok, Thailand, June 29, 2018 – Lenovo, the world’s leading PC manufacturer, unveiled the refreshed Lenovo Legion Y530, Y730 laptops and T530 tower, aiming at making the gaming experience even better.

Being redesigned, reengineered and reimagined, the Lenovo Legion collection has leveled up to offer gamers a more powerful gaming experience than ever before. Inspired by, and co-created with gamers around the world, based on their needs, the refreshed Legion collection offers gamers a well-designed, powerful and portable plug-and-play device with DIY flexibility for the most immersive experiences.

Thailand’s gaming market is growing rapidly, with around 18.3 million gamers across the country, making it the biggest gaming market in the region. To cater for the high demand, Legion is committed to offer players a powerful performance that comes with the latest components.

The new Lenovo Legion offerings, Lenovo Legion Y530, Y730 Laptops and T530 Tower, have been specially designed to meet these needs.

From the Office to the Living Room – Lenovo Legion Y530 and Y730 Laptops

The new Lenovo Legion laptops are built for today’s on-the-go gamer who travels light. Imagine the anticipation ahead of playing the hottest new title at lunch but having an important meeting on the same day. Rather than juggle two laptops in one bag, the Lenovo Legion Y530 and Y730 Laptops cater to both in one chic machine – effortlessly transitioning from work to play. Made of precisely machined aluminum and anodized in a sophisticated Iron Gray, the Lenovo Legion Y730 Laptop showcases ultrathin borders around its full HD IPS display. Meanwhile, the Raven Black Lenovo Legion Y530 Laptop has a subtle but compelling top cover texture that radiates out from the “O” in its Legion emblem. With the new laptops’ sophisticated design, gamers will no longer have to worry about judgmental eyes in business meetings.

Thinner, lighter and sleeker than before, the new laptops are ideal for those who want to focus on their game even when playing in public, instead of disturbing passers-by with the numbing glow of a typical gaming machine. Instead, the Lenovo Legion Y530 and Y730 Laptops provide a stealthy cover that allows users to travel and game discreetly. Paired with a Lenovo Y Gaming Armored Backpack1 with a dedicated laptop compartment, your gear will stay safe and sound from rush hour to happy hour.

The new Lenovo Legion laptops have a dual-channel cooling system, with additional side vents and multi-length, multi-rotational fan blades that improves its airflow by 16 percent, with 10 percent cooler system temperatures compared to before. Not only is the laptop cooler, it’s whisper-quiet, too.

More than capable of handling some of today’s most demanding games, both laptops come fully-equipped with up to NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti GPUs, up to the latest 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processors and Windows® 10. Their keyboards are made to offer under 1ms input response time – designed to deliver that split-second advantage in competition. The laptops’ optional 144Hz full HD IPS displays not only offer a higher refresh rate for smoother visuals and reduced motion blurring, but also thinner bezels with brighter panels at 300 nits – making characters come to life in crisp detail. The Lenovo Legion Y730 Laptop is the world’s first gaming laptop with Dolby Atmos® Speaker System with Dolby Sound Radar. Dolby Atmos Speaker System creates an amazing experience over Dolby® custom-designed and tuned PC speakers or over headphones.2 It delivers breathtaking, moving audio that flows above and around you, designed to place you inside the action as sound comes alive with richness and depth. The new Lenovo Legion Y530 Laptop natively supports Dolby Audio™, which enables loud and clear sound. Combining crystal-clear visuals with incredible sound, the new laptops provide an all-around immersive gaming experience.

The Lenovo Legion Y530 Laptop is the mainstream option, while its higher-end Y730 Laptop offers overclocked gaming horsepower in a 17-inch or 15-inch screen, with optional 16GB CORSAIR® DDR4 overclocked memory. The Lenovo Legion Y730 Laptop is the world’s first gaming laptop with a CORSAIR iCUE® RGB backlit keyboard and system lighting, featuring six custom macro “Y” keys for added customization of more than 16 million color combinations.

Tower of Power – Lenovo Legion T530

The Lenovo Legion T530 tower serves as the stunning centerpiece to a killer gaming setup. Sporting a polished design in a 28L chassis, the Raven Black Lenovo Legion T530 shares the same subtle top texture as the Y530 Laptop radiating out from its power button. The Lenovo Legion T530 features red lighting behind its thermal venting. This explosively powerful 28-litre desktop has been redesigned from the ground up to deliver a bold new look that houses the latest Intel® gaming processors, discrete graphics, DDR4 memory, PCIe SSD storage and dual-channel cooling, all with external red system lighting.
