    I legit think that most companies HATE the existence of this gaming laptop. This puts a LOT of pressure on companies to make something competitive.

      @Kareem Foreva eGPU, the meaning of 'e' is eksternal, so eGPU is eksternal GPU, and it require thunderbolt 3 port

      Your $1200 over there equals to nearly 5000 over here...

              too bad it looks like a 14 year old's laptop. The company loses sales b/c of the aesthetic. I won't buy it, nor will plenty of other people. Yet, any gamer will by a minimalist design, and minimalist lovers will also buy a minimalist design. Makes no sense to create this like 2010-esque looking laptops when minimal design is what everyone wants, you alienate a broader spectrum of potential customers just with this poor design choice.

              Yes, it's that big of a deal when you're in a meeting and you bust out your laptop and it says "P R E D A T O R" on the fucking lid. Wtf? lmao.

                  What is the specific battery usage for this laptop? I’m thinking of getting one very soon if the battery is reasonable for whole day usage.

                                  I'm getting this laptop for gaming and I'm new to using Windows laptops. What program should I use to run benchmarks so I know my computer isn't "the lemon"

                                    Need help:

                                    I'm thinking of getting a new laptop that I'm probably going to use for the next 5-6 years.
                                    I play casual games and probably only one or two triple A games (if at all) at any time. (Usually just rpg, Divinity 2 or DA).
                                    I'll be using it primarily for web development (I'm learning) and maybe Netflix.
                                    If possible 13-15.6 inch. Nothing bulky.

                                    Acer Helios 300 and Lenovo L340 gaming is my top choices. Am also considering Razer Stealth or Asus UX392.

                                    Your feedbacks would be greatly appreciated.

                                      Take a look at the new asus rog series of gaming laptops. They're thin, light and pretty affordable. They seem to fit in your criteria.

                                          I have read review that the device is not restarting and they are sending defective units.... And other defects. Is this true ?

                                              I give up now, I’ve been researching for weeks now. I’m heading off to college and have been searching for a laptop that could handle all my college needs with occasional gaming with no lag or problems. The thing is that I want something small and light, but laptops that are small and light aren’t really good for gaming. My budget is $1200 and I ran into this video and it hurts my soul cuz it seems like the gamer in me dream laptop, but sadly I don’t think it fits the college side of things and for that reason I’m not getting it which sucks. I think I’m just going to stop looking for a laptop with gaming in mind and just going to stick with what will benefit me in college. Laptop shopping is so damn stressing.

I bought Y540 two days ago and the biggest thing you're going to notice is the screen quality, way way better and sharper than Helios. The image quality on the Legion looks crisp and the colors pop out. Satisfied with my purchase.

                                                          Can you please let me know why an i5 CPU would bottleneck RTX 2060. You're scaring me!!!

                                                          should have gone with the i7, that i5 will bottleneck that 2060

                                                        Hi Dave, this looks like a good machine but luckily i live in China and the new xiaomi gaming laptop is coming and for 1200 usd you get rtx 2060 and 512ssd plus the other things this one has like 9th gen i7 and 16 gigs of RAM. Hope you can get your hands on one to see how it stacks up against the other similar priced offerings. Cheers
