Any comprehensive reviews out for this yet? Coming from an XPS 15 I am concerned about battery life and screen quality!

So this system is admittedly rocking what's equivalent to a GTX 1070 with more sophisticated features, and for $1,822.47... that's warm.

However, when I see a comparable GTX 1060 laptop for only $799 USD from Walmart USA, I still say we have a ways to go. At $1499, the RTX 2060 build starts to get molten. The market isn't there yet, though.
You mean the one that was on final liquidation and will never be restocked ever again?

Great take.

2k laptop and three cell battery? How long will that power a beast like this?

Good question, no idea lol. I read 6 hours no gaming. 4 hours with mixed gaming, 2 hours while gaming. I wouldn't game on battery though. Now that you mention it, looks like the batteries internal and not replaceable which I'm not a huge fan of. I'm more then capable of opening a laptop without causing mechanical or esd damage but I shouldn't need to be careful. It looks like upgrading or adding a second hard drive might also be difficult. Theres no easy to remove door. You'll need to remove the heatsink/fan cover and it might be tricky for anyone not familiar with disassembling electronic devices.

Screen quality wise my GT70 always looked alittle dim and washed out. I used an external monitor while gaming. Compared to that the Y740 has a bright vivid display. No complaints. I have the 15 inch 300 nit 144Hz version. Theres a 500 nit version that will be released later. You'll need to wait for reviews to give a more informed comparison. No complaints though except for that little bit of light bleeding. Honestly, though if a laptop has a 144Hz screen it's probably not going to be garbage.

This was my final order with teacher discount to just show what's possible.

Onsite is only $7 more than depot for 3 years - not having to wipe the system and ship it in and lose use for a week - definitely worth it:

Item:
Lenovo Legion Y740 - Iron Grey
Price:
$1,883.29
Part No: 81HE005XUS
Configuration Details
● Processor: Intel Core i7-8750H 6 Core (2.20GHz, up to 4.10GHz with Turbo Boost, 9MB Cache)

And you can return within 30 days of receiving for free with no restock fee, they provide the return label. So no pressure to try.

So that's $1744.59 pre tax with no taxes or warranty if anyone wants that number.

In terms of increased performance, lower thermals and noise and futureproof and warranty - definitely get an Y740 2060 over older 1070 competing models imho.

Kowel, Peter had asked for some benchmarks to be run using 3dmark.

Peter, I ran the time spy tests. The overall score amd graphics score came in slightly better but pretty much in line with the results listed on notebookcheck graphics card benchmarks. Let me know if theres a specific twst you want ran.

5936 overall and 5793 for graphics.

Thank you OP!

Good to know. Sounds like you got custom.

Are you able to record the decibel level at ear placement (maybe with your phone)? Checking the temps as you do would be helpful too. Then we can compare vs 2070 (wattage is approx equal other than only 6GB VRAM in 2060). A lot of the 2060 benchmarks came from Aero 15 syatems which are gimped unfortunately. Note that lifting the machine a little for more airflow helps a significantly with heat and noise from what I read.

For the person who asked about in-depth reviews, nothing with RTX2060, but see this thread for details and a link to a translated Romanian in-depth review with higher level RTX card:

Thanks,
Peter

PS For person asking about the price in my last post, please read first line - that was with teacher discount. First post I made was EPP with the 5% deal that was on that first weekend and hopefully will repeat soon (no eta unfortunately yet - current Family day promos are just specific items).

I know you mean well, but you're confused if you think clearance or final liquidation is a downside. Clearances are why I save money, this sale is hardly that at close to $2k.

That said, we all have our preference sets, and this RTX laptop is the right price for some folks... to those I say god bless and enjoy.

Sorry Peter, I work with test measurement setups and wouldn't trust my uncalibrated S7 edge. It's been beat up and mic holes blocked so it could easily be artificially attenuated. It's anecdotal but the wifes not yelling at me about the fan noise when I use it to browse and do light activities while she watches tv. GPU/CPU temp stayed in the 40's (averaged 43/44) probably 20 to 22 degrees above ambient. The laptop case stays cool to the touch during internet browsing and some basic applications open like excel. I also have a open faced headset on during gaming but it didn't distract me. I had to use a dual fan laptop stand with my old gt70 while playing cs go. The reason i didn't use it during my testing is to see whether one is needed or not. So far, with maxed out settings, it didn't over heat while playing cs go and shadow of the tomb raider.

What do you mean it sounds like I got custom?

So I just update the iCUE software which I was using for system temperature logging. It looks like they removed the ability to log the individual CPU cores and the CPU package temperature. Not really happy about that. I've emailed and posted on forums to see if it can be brought back or a download link for the old version be provided. The update was from 3.7 to 3.12.

Anyone know a good application to do temperature or system logging?

Any other meaningful benchmarks I should run?

Wow thanks so much for this OP! Got the 256GB NVMe version for $1911 altogether after taxes! Didn't know they had such a good military discount!
+6% cashback from ebates right now too makes it amazing for sure.
Works out to $1810 for a 2060 laptop! That is super hot!

Wow! nice job! And I thought the teachers discount was good. I wish I had of known that teachers also get an awesome discount. I would have been fine saving the extra few hundred from that but that military discount is amazing.

You completely missed the point. Final clearance as in gone. As in you cannot buy the 15” OP laptop at Walmart so why even mention it?

Were you able to use the military discount and ebates on the employee pricing website? Or did you buy from the normal store?

I didn't use the EPP site, just the regular Lenovo Canada site and set up the My.ID which was pretty simple (few minutes to have my ID verified). Then went through ebates and added everything, and added the code for my military discount (which doesn't stack with EXTRA5). Got the ebates confirmation just now for $101.52 cash back.
