SmartHouse - - FIRST LOOK // LENOVO -

Len­ovo has re­freshed its gam­ing PC & lap­top line up with six new sys­tems, fea­tur­ing gam­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties in sleek, un­der­stated de­signs. The new mod­els claim to sep­a­rate Len­ovo from ri­val gam­ing de­vices, which in­cor­po­rate ‘flash­ing lights’ and ob­tru­sive lo­gos.

The com­pany’s Le­gion gam­ing range now fea­tures six new sys­tems – Y730/Y530 lap­tops, C730/C530 cubes and T730/T530 tow­ers.

The new range fea­tures dark, sleek and more so­phis­ti­cated de­signs, how­ever, is likely not aimed at max in­ten­sity gamers, due to hard­ware spec­i­fi­ca­tions. Len­ovo’s Le­gion Y730 and Y530 in­cor­po­rate Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1050Ti GPU and eight-gen In­tel Core i7 pro­ces­sors.

The new gam­ing cubes fea­ture eighth-gen In­tel Core i7 pro­ces­sors, op­tional RGB sys­tem light­ing, a 19-liter gray coloured chas­sis and sup­port up to a GTX 1060, 32GB DDR4 RAM.

The two new ATX tow­ers (T730 and T530) fea­ture op­tional GPUs up to Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060.

Com­men­ta­tors spec­u­late some gamers will be con­strained by the tow­ers’ graph­ics card, de­spite in­cor­po­rat­ing eighth-gen Core i7 chips, dual SSDS in RAID 0 and up to 32GB RAM.

Whilst Aus­tralian pric­ing and avail­abil­ity is yet to be con­firmed, Len­ovo’s new Y370 will launch in the US in Septem­ber for US$1,249.99 (17-inch) and US$1,179.99 (15-inch).

The new 15-inch Y530 is set to hit US stores in July for US$929, and the new desk­tops land­ing in Au­gust from US$829.

(Aus­tralian pric­ing and avail­abil­ity to be con­firmed).
