    G-sync + 144 hz + Excellent Thermals + RTX. They don't come cheaper than this. Is the Y740 your next gaming laptop?

      I'm considering the mid 19' refresh. With 9750h, gtx 2060 and 1tb ssd for $1300. I think it's a good deal.

                            I have this laptop. I love it. The only things that I dislike are the battery life, and the screen easily moves around when typing. I still love it though, even though carrying the charging brick everywhere is a must.

                                    Can the community send enough requests for this laptop to dBrand for them to make a custom skin for it? Also, is the heat spreader copper-plated or pure copper because I'm considering liquid metal

                                                  i found the same Lenovo 740 with RTX 2080 and with 15 inch, also the same specs with 17 inches i found but 300 euros more costs , i also dont care alot about the screen size sinc i have a Montor for it , would the size of the laptop affect the performance of the laptop in this case ?

                                                    Here in Malaysia, this y740 i7 8gen RTX2060 price about 1600 usd. With this price and its good professional looking & build quality, i think this laptop very suit to me (33 years), for my work+gaming. Hope other company will follow this design and not forget to mention, good pricing not crazy high like Zephyrus & thin Msi.

                                                        Haven't seen anyone talk about this at all in their Y740 review, but it's something to consider. When you have headphones plugged in and the fans are running at max speed, at lower volumes you can hear a low humming noise quite audibly in the background. I think because it's related to the fans there's nothing you can do about it unforunately. Otherwise, it's a fantastic laptop.

I noticed that Lenovo isn’t selling it on their site anymore, but it’s just now at a good price point for my right now. The 740 is about $300 more. Do you think I would be losing out on getting the 730 right now, as opposed to the 740? TIA!

                                                                                I would like to ask you at similar price for same specs which laptop would you recomend me between MSI GS65 and Lenovo Y740? For me it will be a gaming laptop but also my business laptop and I will be travelling with it sometimes but not crazy often. Thanks!
