For the gamer on the go, Lenovo Legion Y520 is a sleek laptop that visually looks stunning and solid performance for its price... But if it's for the gamer that will more than likely play at home, on their desk and the laptop is constantly plugged in, watches movies but is not picky of vibrant 1080p screens and just wants to play their games at a higher resolution and not spend over $1000, let alone not far from $900, then the Lenovo Legion Y520 is for you!
3.5 / 5 stars - Affordable, compact, and upgradeable, the Lenovo Legion Y520 Tower is a solid desktop for HD gaming on a budget, even if its performance is limited.

For $1,079.99, this Legion Y520 Tower configuration nets you a GTX 1060 and plenty of storage for your games, plus room to upgrade in the future. If your budget has some wiggle room and you know you'll play demanding games, or play at a resolution higher than HD, the more expensive options, like the Editors' Choice Dell XPS Tower, are worth the investment. Alternatively, you can configure the Legion Y520 a bit higher and add in an i7 for just $100 more. If the games you play are generally less demanding and you don't need to do hobbyist or professional work on the side, this a great money-saving choice.
