Gaming laptops have really improved in recent years. Not only have they come down significantly in price, but they’re not nearly as heavy as they used to be. Right now, you can get a Legion Y520 with a quad-core Kaby Lake CPU and a GTX 1060 for under a thousand bucks. Better yet, it measures only about an inch thick, and weighs in at just 5.5 pounds.

Inside, it sports a seventh generation quad-core 2.8GHz Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU, a discrete Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card (with 3GB of memory), 8GB of DDR4 RAM (2400MHz), a 1TB 5400RPM hard drive, a 128GB solid-state drive, Bluetooth 4.1, and 802.11b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support. With specs like these, you’re getting a ton of bang for your buck here.
And the 15.6-inch display? It features LED backlighting, in-plane switching, an anti-glare coating, and a full HD resolution of 1920×1080 – a great fit for most games. And if you prefer to play your games on your monitor or HDTV, the built-in HDMI port makes that a snap.
Windows 10 Home (64-bit) comes installed by default, so you’ll have access to all of Microsoft’s latest gaming-focused features. DirectX 12, game DVR, local Xbox One game streaming, and the Windows Store are all available out of the box, so you can hit the ground running.
