    Lenovo Legion Y740 have a very quiet cooling system according to reviews. This model comes in 2 display sizes and it is now on sale at Lenovo's site, with "EXTRA5" or "LENOVO13" code bringing price further down. The only downside with it is it is a very popular model so there is an order delay for all new orders. If you're willing to wait - go for it.
