OP, I think this constitutes as hot!

I paid $1350 from Costco for the Y720 with almost the same specs (16gb of ram) and last gen processor (7700HQ) and I thought that was a deal considering the same one is at newegg for $1999.

I think this is a good deal :). thanks!

How's the build quality on one of these compared to an XPS 15. Is this a really good deal??

The 8gb is just one DIMM slot, having to buy just one other stick of 8gb ram isn't that bad.

My only complaint is small battery. Apart from that, solid laptop!

I own a lower spec model, the build is solid, keyboard comfortable to type on, great thermal, rather light and subtle compared to similar entry level gaming laptops, thin bezels look good too. That being said, the screen is a week point, I did compare it next to a XPS15 9570, the brightness and color accuracy is a mile behind, and battery only last about 3 hours. Also, my Y530 came only with a 1TB HDD, so I added a 500G M.2 pcie myself, and rest the system on it, now I occasionally experience black screen freezes when waking up after it goes to sleep on its own, still waiting for a fix. Oh by the way, wifi card is shit, I swapped it with a intel 9250.

The Y730 was on sale yesterday for the same price at $1299 on lenovo (it's OOS now).

While it's only 1050Ti, the aluminum chassis and additional thunderbolt made up for it for casual gaming.

● Display Type: 15.6" FHD (1920x1080) IPS anti-glare, 300nits, 60Hz
● Memory: 16 GB DDR4 2666MHz (1 DIMM)
● Hard Drive: 1TB 7200 RPM + 128GB Solid State Drive PCIe
● Warranty: 1 Year Depot or Carry-in
● AC Adapter: 135 watt AC

Not for all. I use i5 with 8GB RAM which sometimes suck when I run multiple programs (ie. photoshop, illustrator, internet etc. ) at the same time.
It it i7 model, definitely would be better than mine. Still I would prefer 16GB for this price.

At 8GB RAM and a 512GB SSD, it's a steal IMO.
Just get another 8GB RAM, or better yet, get two 16GBs. Also, you can add another 1T SSD SATA in there and you've got a better specs complementing the 1060.
I finally quit drinking for good. Now, I drink for evil!

That's a good price with a 1060 and 512GB nvme SSD. If it were 16 GB and had a 144hz panel I'd buy one.

Remember guys, Lenovo has a very generous discount for military, teachers, and students. Will save an additional 20-25%

Not as good build quality as the Dell XPS, hardly any computers offer that. Certainly not the low tier Legion.

These are aimed at very different audiences.

If you want to play games for hours, this Legion will kill the Dell. It has a better GPU and a cooling system that is up to the task of keeping temps under control.

If you prefer long battery life and compliments in business meetings, get the Dell.
