Lenovo ups the ante on its Legion offerings with a slate of new laptops, and amazing back-to-school offerings for Lenovo Legion fans. The gaming brand will stun gamers and professionals alike with Intel- and NVIDIA-equipped gaming laptops. Meanwhile, Lenovo customers can take advantage of the company’s back-to-school promo and get free Legion accessories for their purchases.
Lenovo executives teased these offerings in a roundtable meeting with media last April 25. According to them, four (4!) new Legion devices will be hitting Lenovo’s shelves beginning this June: the Legion Y740, the Legion Y540, the IdeaPad L340 Gaming, and the Legion T530.

Tristan Ver Gonzales, Lenovo Philippines’ Legion Gaming & Desktop Product Manager, led the charge in introducing the company’s newest offerings. Other Lenovo officials also accompanied him.
“Enhanced and realistic graphics are now the norm in PC gaming,” Michael Ngan, Lenovo Philippines’ Country General Manager, said. “And those without the latest technology are simply unable to play. By providing the right tools, we at Lenovo are not only giving gamers the chance to play games, but we’re also giving non-gamers an opportunity to fully immerse themselves in a new environment.”
Ngan adds the new devices from Legion will cater to gamers who want to venture into online streaming. This will be courtesy of NVIDIA and Intel that will be supporting the devices.
As we can recall, the new NVIDIA GTX 16-series graphics card can amp up power efficiency by as much as 1.4-times better than previous generations. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA RTX 2060 can offer up to six times the performance of previous-generation cards. It also comes with artificial intelligence for enhanced graphics, and real-time ray tracing.

If there’s anything Lenovo keeps on proving, it’s that there’s no other way than up. And the new line of Legion laptops prove such is the case.
