Since they’re loaded, it’s not surprising to see that in contrast to other high-end laptops, they’re incredibly thicker and heavier. These models go up to 29 mm thickness and 3.2 kg of weight, which means that if you’re going to carry these on your back for an extended period of time, you may hurt yourself in the process. But gaming laptops are usually bulky, so if you already experienced it and had no problems, then this would be a great option.

The Lenovo Legion Y520 laptop costs $899.99 and it will ship beginning February. On the other hand, the Lenovo Legion Y720 will hit stores in April for a price of $1,399.99.
