    I got the 57 Wh. I don't think that 76 Wh battery will be available until the 500 nit display is.

    A few side by side comparisons of the Razer Blade 15 and scar 2 I’m testing out

    Lenovo clearly stated the battery capacity is 57wh when you make purchase. They may release the larger battery in the future, I guess.

    Part number is showing an LG display. I have to say it’s really good!

    It must be. LG always have good panel.

    Are you able to switch optimus and gsync in either bios or software? Because I see that Y740 17inch has this function listed on their Chinese product page. It says you can switch between optimus and gsync.

    Yes you can in the BIOS. I haven’t messed with it yet as I’ve been enjoying gsync tonight but it’s there.

    Congrats guys!
    I was a little skeptical about the RTX 2060 but I’m impressed, I was pretty dead set about getting at least a RTX 2070MQ but now I’m second guessing myself.

    Just wanted to talk about this bad news for myself, if anyone else experiences this in the future well shame.

    Y740 15" 2070 with 256+1tb, seems like something fried itself. I was playing GTA V with all the settings maxed out with it pushing around 60-70 fps, then I got a ERR-GFX-D3D-IN error from the game itself, and everything started artifacting, and after a while, BSOD with VIDEO TDR FAILURE.

    Tried powering it on again, then it shows the LEGION splash screen, and instead of booting into windows with the lock screen, the screen goes black and the computer becomes a brick (computer still running but no display output and inputting things does nothing).

    After a couple restarts the computer recognizes that there is an issue with startup and prompts the recovery menu, I've tried everything from uninstalling updates, rolling back to previous states, and finally resetting the entire windows and storage partitions. But in every process, the screen goes black and it never recovers, the output just cuts off.

    Hardware issue definitely, and after speaking with premium support I'm getting a replacement. Sitting here hoping I was just very unlucky and got a defective unit. My first laptop from Lenovo and it is not the best feeling, but I'll stay optimistic. Thankfully I caught this issue on the day I received it.

    Some things about this laptop I saw

    -Laptop idled at 50c for both cpu and gpu, while gaming it would reach 95c and 80~c for cpu and gpu respectively.
    -Vantage software said there was a new bios update but it failed every time when I tried to update via the software, so I just downloaded it from the website and installed it, lost the manual fan boost button and option to automatically disable g sync on battery after that.
    -Corsair application needed to be restarted every time computer was restarted, since the computer would return to the default blueish light settings every time. (The app was on the startup list but it never launched during startup, strange)
    -Text in windows 10 for certain popups and prompts would be blurry, like I was using a 4k display or something. The text in hwmonitor was noticeably just like that, blurry and not normal, scaled wrong.
    -Light bleeding is definitely something you would get on these things, the lid is assembled on super tight, and it's rather thin so the panel is under constant pressure, you will notice that the panel backlight bleeding levels changing as you apply pressure to the lid housing and around the bezels, but other laptops are like that?

    These were the first models I looked at when my Y50-70 died. Really love the look of these, pretty much everything about them. But that ****ing numpad layout on the 17" and some of the 15"s, wtf. I actually use the numpad alot, that's literally the sole thing that kept me from getting one.
