Housing specs fit for gaming in a precision-cut, all-aluminum chassis, the 15.6" Legion Y740 sports a clean look, weighs only 5.1 lb, measures only 0.9", and features Corsair iCUE ambient system lighting.

Focus on The Game, Not the Bezels

The Legion Y740 laptop's 15.6" display provides a near-edgeless visual experience, thanks to bezels that are considerably thin. You can keep your eyes where the action is with its FHD graphics, which renders more than 2 million pixels at refresh rates up to 144 Hz and brightness levels up to 300 nits. You'll get an immersive experience from the tear-free video of NVIDIA G-SYNC technology and Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range 400.

Your Eyes Deserve Dolby

It achieves this image quality through cinema-inspired HDR technology that can deliver billions of colors to your laptop wherever you are. The result is a refined, lifelike image.

The Coldfront is Here

Overheating is minimized thanks to Legion Coldfront, which is a dual-channel thermal system that can provide individual CPU and GPU cooling for optimum system temperatures. Additionally, there are four thermal vents for improved airflow, along with a dedicated heat sink for cooler keyboard temperatures, and 70 individual fan blades per channel to reduce system noise.

Time to Strike

The Legion Y740 delivers game-friendly controls with a full-sized keyboard that delivers 100% anti-ghosting, Corsair iCUE RGB lighting, less than 1 ms response time, and more for complete control of your system. Additionally, the keyboard is designed to be a water repellent to protect against accidental spills. Further, the Legion Y740 features Windows Precision drivers with gesture control for effortless input whether at work or play.

Go Inside the Action

Dolby Atmos pulls you into the game with moving audio that sweeps all around and above you with precision and realism. A leap forward from surround sound, it's designed to give you a competitive edge via the Sound Radar overlay. It's also built so you know where specific sounds are coming from and hear audio that heightens your sense of awareness for gaming immersion. Further, the Legion Y740 comes with a custom-engineered Dolby Atmos Sound Bar for Gaming with an integrated subwoofer and Smart AMP technology, for immersive sound with or without headphones.

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 Laptop, 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.
