Professional Video Production

A multi-core Intel Core i7-7700HQ sits at the heart of the IdeaPad Legion Y520, providing plenty of raw processing power for editing 4K high definition video. With a total storage capacity of 1128 GB, the IdeaPad Legion Y520 ensures you have plenty of space to store your footage.

Great for photo editing

The Lenovo powerful Intel Core i7 processor makes image manipulation a breeze. And the high resolution 1920 x 1080 pixels display ensures your pictures really ‘pop’ when you’re done.

Gaming

Basic games might need more than basic hardware. The IdeaPad Legion Y520 is a good choice for casual gamers, offering enough CPU power, RAM and storage to get the job done – hardcore gamers may need something a little meatier though.

It's good for academic research

Light, portable, and full-featured, the IdeaPad Legion Y520 is ideal for carrying between offices and libraries. You’ll have all the tools you need to research and write outstanding research papers and theses.

All about the Films!

In addition to its excellent Advanced screen, this laptop comes with a 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution ensuring scenes pop with colour and great fidelity. Also, while watching in the dark, you can start, stop and skip through scenes using the backlit keyboard.

Videos for fun

With a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels pixels, you'll have sufficient visual clarity to decide which video sequence will give the impact you're looking for. With 16 GB GB RAM, and a Intel Core i7 CPU, the IdeaPad Legion Y520 delivers great results.

Give your Images the professional touch

The on-board Memory size of 16 GB and the quad-core Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor on this laptop allows you to quickly convert high ppi image formats and rapidly iterate through your concepts.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card offers extra power for rendering your creative work on to your spacious 15.6 inches display. 

The screen built with IPS technology gives you vivid colours and great viewing angles whilst the 1920 x 1080 pixels resolutions provides the necessary detail.

It also comes with the Memory card reader just in case you need an alternative option to move your creative work from once device to another.

In addition, this laptop can be used night or day thanks to the built in back-lit keyboard.

Music and Audio

Developing your own tunes and mixes is important to you, so we've recommended a laptop that has got an advanced audio system on-board with HD sound capabilities.

The presence of a 4 cores core process will help speed up music format conversions or codec-based compression.

Its all about the Beats

When you need crystal clear audio and plenty of grunt for processing and encoding, the IdeaPad Legion Y520 can handle everything you throw at it. A selection of ports allow you to connect instruments and devices, while the 2.8 GHz takes care of the actual production work.

Book keeping

The 15.6 inches screen gives you enough screen-space to wade through columns and rows

Excel, Quicken etc, don't need much power so this option won't up the requirements on processor. 

Your Lenovo 's 16 GB RAM will ensure large sheets and accounts wont undermine performance

The numeric keypad keyboard really takes the strain out when entering data.

Can handle UI Dev & Design work

With a 8937 CPU and 16 GB of RAM, the IdeaPad Legion Y520 is ideal for front-end development. Whether you’re coding basic HTML5, or working with more complex JavaScript frameworks, this laptop has everything you need.

Can handle a Full-Stack Coding Environment

You'll need a machine that can handle multiple VMs for your various dev environments. The IdeaPad Legion Y520 sports an Intel Core i7-7700HQ , (a processor with 4 cores) plus a healthy 16 GB of RAM to power your VMs and dev tools.

Regular Stuff / Everyday Tasks

Spreadsheets, presentations and documents, don't need much, but your Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and 16 GB RAM ensures even image laden files won't leave you watching the 'spinning wheel'!

Surf the web at speed thanks to the IdeaPad Legion Y520’s speedy b/g/n/ac WiFi interface.

Sending and receiving email is a relatively lightweight activity that the IdeaPad Legion Y520 can comfortably handle. It also comes with 1000 GB of total storage so you never have to delete a message or attachment again.

Facebook, twitter etc require little processing power or screen specification so the IdeaPad Legion Y520 will do just fine.

Battery life is fairly decent
