Lenovo Legion fuels passion for gaming

ONLINE gamers in the Philippines are growing in number that Lenovo saw it fit to come up with a PC line, aptly named Lenovo Legion, for better user and gaming experience.

The Legion line was tested for the first time by players from 12 schools in a two-day gaming convention, named Legion by Lenovo, at the Cyberzone area at SM North Edsa in Quezon City.

Simple enthusiasts and hardcore gamers came to the convention as teams played League of Legends, one of the most popular Multiplayer Online Battle Arena games by Garena in Southeast Asia.

Some were even lucky to play online against celebrities such as Kristoffer Martin, Jack Reid, Ashley Gosiengfiao, Alex Diaz and Jerome Ponce.

“Lenovo Legion is dedicated to our community of gamers and their passion for gaming,” said Michael Ngan, Country General Manager for Lenovo Philippines. “And by introducing Legion through this gaming convention, we hope to grow such a community—where local gamers can support each other in the world of gaming, and improve camaraderie online.”

Participating schools in the gaming convention, which was hosted by Radio DJs, Nikko Ramos and Joyce Pring, were De La Salle University, DLSU-College of Saint Benilde, Adamson University, National University, AMA University–Quezon City Campus, University of the Philippines-Diliman and the Far Eastern University, among many others.

Everybody gave their thumbs-up to Lenovo Legion, which has two laptop varieties such as the Lenovo Legion Y520 the Ideapad Y910; and desktop IdeaCentre Y710 Cube.

The Lenovo Legion offers gamers the most immersive gaming experiences. Let’s begin with the legion Y520—an entry-level gaming laptop that runs on the latest 7th generation Kaby Lake processors from Intel. With a budget powerhouse NVIDIA GTX 1050/1050Ti graphics card, games can be displayed in crisp 1080p or 1440p quality.

Top it with Dolby Premium sound technology and Harman-certified speakers, it’s like being where the action is.

Its user-friendly feature includes the Nerve Sense which you won’t find in any kind of laptop. It’s a function that allows one to easily customize various settings with less effort.

Through the Nerve Sense, one can adjust the keyboard lighting, disable the touchpad and other unnecessary keys for playing, and control the sound settings. The Nerve Sense also has an Extreme Cooling feature allowing one to adjust cooling systems with just a few clicks.

For streamers, the Nerve Sense can also conduct livestream gaming sessions, which can be integrated into their social media accounts or record their gameplay and upload them at another time.

Also debuting at the gaming convention is the virtual-reality ready Ideapad Y910. It is built with a 6th generation Intel Core i7 K processor and is especially equipped with a One Key Turbo that can instantly boost CPU performance with just one click for an uninterrupted gaming experience. Graphics of the Ideapad Y910 will be provided by the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080M GPU which can reach 4K resolution display.

Another VR-ready machine is the IdeaCentre Y710 Cube that has a 6th generation Intel Core i7 K processor and memory of up to 16GB of DDR4, more than enough to handle games while streaming them at the same time, or even opening multiple applications at once while editing your videos and photos. Additionally, its NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU also allows for 4k resolution gaming.

Combining a sharp design with decent portability and 4K/VR-ready performance, the IdeaCentre Y710 Cube is small, yet mighty. The case is decked in various shades of matte grey plastic, and a three-pronged front edge with lines that glow through external LED lights.

Exceptionally, it has a built-in carrying handle, so you can lug it anywhere you like. You can bring it between gaming stations, to your room, or a friend’s house for an all-night multiplayer gaming. The Cube weighs only 7.4 kilograms, and has a tower that’s approximately the size of a standard laptop at 15.48 inches long.

The IdeaCentre Y710 Cube is now available at Lenovo Philippines retail stores at a starting price of P 81,990.

The Lenovo Legion Y520 will be available at authorized retail stores in February, while the Ideapad Y910 will be available the first quarter of 2017. Pricing details will be announced soon. To stay updated on Lenovo Philippines news, visit, or follow us on our Facebook page.
