NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series Graphics Cards
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards can deliver up to a 40% increase in performance over the previous generation. Not only are they powerful, they can deliver similar performance to their desktop counterparts with a slight performance difference. This changes mobile gaming, allowing you to max out your game's visuals settings so you can enjoy it at its best. Furthermore, 10-series graphics cards are VR ready so plug in your favorite headset for a new computing experience.
Dolby Atmos Laptop
With Dolby Atmos technolgoy, the Y720 delivers immersive audio over headphones. Thanks to positional audio, you'll fel like you're inside the action as the sounds of people, places, things, and music come alive.
VR Support
The Y720 is equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card and HDMI/USB 3.0 ports, so you can easily plug in your virtual reality headset and experience a different way to play.
Lenovo Nerve Sense
Lenovo Nerve Sense is the customization software that lets you adjust keyboard lighting, customize hotkeys, and streamline audio.
Integrated Xbox One Wireless Controller Support
The Y720 is built with integrated Xbox One Wireless controller support so you can take a break from the keyboard and mouse.
Programmable Backlit Keyboard
The programmable backlit keyboard on the Y720 lets you type and game in dimly lit or dark environments. Swap through its wide range of colors to find one that fits you. Moreover, it's programmable so you can adjust keys as needed.
Thunderbolt 3
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
Make Music Anywhere
Stagelight is a software for creating music that's included on your Legion Y720. It's available on other Windows devices, including smart phones, tablets and desktops. You'll be able to make beats, mix loops, or create full songs with vocal tracks.

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

    Lenovo 80VR002HUS reviews

    15.6" Legion Y720 Notebook is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Display screen is spot on crisp First off, hat's off!! to B&H for the return on my first purchase of this laptop. B&H took ownership of the situation and gave me a replacement in three days. My first L-top went blue and couldn't start up regardless of� following the screen protocols. Enough said! I had the 1st L-top one day, went into a updating cycle and never returned. Since the replacement, no issues, and very much enjoying the photo editing and excellent screen resolution. A HUGE difference (3840 x 2160 screen) from the aged laptop I was working on.� For the money, I'd recommend it again and the extended warranty. Time will tell with the speed, loading and working off the various software programs.� For now speed is fine, but I'd leave that opinion to the gamer experts, cause knows better than they.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Lenovo you can trust... I do audio visual for a society that I belong to and they upgraded their computer to a Lenovo Y50-70 a couple of years ago.� I have loved that computer ever since...� With my computer showing signs of age, I got the Lenovo Y720-151K that roughly corresponds to the same unit.� How do they compare?� The screens are 4K type screens and roughly the same.� I never was fond of the glide pad on the Y50-70 and I am a big glide pad user on most computers.� The changes on the Y720 make it a real winner in that area, much better feel.� I also like the keyboard better but it could just be a matter of my taste but I can really sense the difference.� There are also better port selections on the newer unit, which probably should be expected.� I see reviews that say the Y720 screen is not bright enough but do not agree.� I think the people questioning the brightness are using the anti-glare screen which is available on many models.� The boot speed is more than adequate and nice to use.� I must admit that I like the hard drive that is in the older Y50-70 because it is essentially 1T SSD.� The newer unit is 1T with 256 SSD.� There is a 512 but you are forced to the anti glare screen.� Stick with the better screen because the drive performs well at 256.� Last, but not least, I received my unit via UPS right after Cyber Monday.� The outer box was absolutely destroyed.� The UPS guy actually came in the house so we could open what was left of the box together.� The Lenovo packaging reflected the bouncing it took but as of this time (and I do not doubt future reliability), the computer is running just fine.� This is saying quite a lot for the Lenovo unit and packaging.� In short, two thumbs up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Clean I spent a lot of time looking into computers and I kept coming back to this one.� I actually purchased a different model before this one and ended up having to return it because it was defective upon arrival.� I thought I would save a couple hundred bucks with that other one, but after using this computer for a couple weeks, I'm glad things worked out the way they did.� Here's my pros/cons for this computer: 1. PRO - IT'S FAST - it's the fastest booting computer I've ever owned.� Whether from a rest or a restart, it's super fast.� Granted, I've not had a gaming computer before, but regardless, it smokes all my past computers (that were designed for heavy business use). 2. PRO - NO BLOATWARE!! - to me, this is just as important as the speed of the computer.� There's NO JUNK on this computer.� You get Windows and a couple Lenovo add-ons that are actually useful.� No plethora of games and useless apps.� It's nice that I didn't have to spend hours cleaning up the computer after unboxing to get it the way I wanted it (which I had to do with the previous mentioned computer I tried before this one). 3. PRO - QUALITY BUILT - it seems like a very high quality build given the price.� I know it's setup for gaming, but my primary use will be on the go photo & video editing.� The shell is aluminum and looks great.� It's a heavy computer, but I don't mind that because it will be traveling around with me and I prefer something that is a little heavier/sturdier than the ultra-slim and sleek notebooks you see a lot of these days. �4. PRO - 4K SCREEN - for this price range, it was difficult to find a 4K screen.� This one, while not the greatest screen ever, is a good deal for this price point. 5. CON - The battery life is only about 4 hours, but again it's setup as a gaming rig.� It's a little low, but I can live with it given the power of the computer. 6. CON - NO BIOMETRICS - the other computer I tried (different brand) before this one had a fingerprint scanner which was pretty cool/convenient.� This one does not, but again it's something I can live with.� If it had one, it would be the icing on the cake for this computer. Overall, 2 weeks in and very happy.� I've had Lenovo laptops before for work and they were always dependably rugged.� Hoping the same for this one.� It still feels a little odd pulling out a gaming PC for my work, but I just couldn't find a better bang for the buck with this computer versus others that were tailored to the setup I needed.
