Lenovo Legion Y530

Just sharing my recent purchase. Recently received my Legion Y530 as a replacement to my Y460p which I owe for many years since Poly year 1. I used my student pass to purchase in the education store, 15% off for students. So just sharing this in case those who might want to get it.

This is my order details:


Lid cover with nice texture:


The Legion logo:


Left side consists of 1 USB port and 1 headphone jack:


Back consists of 1 USB C, mini DP, USB, hdmi, lan port, power input and a lock slot:


Right side consists of 1 USB and 1 pin hole reset button:


Keyboard with white backlit, similar layout to the Y520:


Overall laptop:


Continue next post...

Standard information, Quick Start guide and a SATA ribbon cable for future add-on of 2.5 drive since I did not include in my order:


Freebies are upgrade to 3 years on-site warranty, 1 wireless mouse and 1 laptop bag:





Total damage:
$979.23

Delivery duration:
1. Ordered on 26/08/18
2. Received Bag and mouse on 31/08/18
3. Received Laptop on 06/09/2018, 2pm by UPS

By right could have received 1 earlier, but no one was at home and UPS did not communicate or update any status which I thought they will deliver on the 6th not 5th hence no one at home. I thought they could at least call or something even on the actual day itself. Well, at least I got my laptop.

Nice of you to share your purchase. Just wondering how’s the speed of that SSD, any idea what brand it is? Or just Lenovo OEM?

Tried online configuration, it says PCIe SSD.
Did not state NVMe.

After configure, at accessories, can add NVMe SSD. So I'm also confused by the options there.

Please let me know if it's NVMe or not.

Thanks

Check in device manager under “disk drives” and let us know?

I was looking at this model also, but it comes with GTX 1050 2GB by default.

to get GTX 1050 4GB, there is a top-up of $60
to get GTX 1050ti 2GB, there is a top-up of $80

which is better?

Bro, I not able to check though as my laptop currently at the service centre for a period of time already... As I carrying my laptop to school in my bagpack with some lecture materials, the screen apparently gotten a noticeable pressure mark. About a 10cm line on the left side of the screen. I not sure how I got it, got be I place my bag down too hard and crush it... Now still waiting for the screen replacement.

I got the GTX 1050 4GB as I wanted to keep it below budget of $1k. In fact I didn't want to spend on a new laptop but my Y460p started to show symptoms of failing. So no choice.

I feel the overall pricing seems to be increased though, I couldn't get the same value of the same config now...
