Gaming has a new look
The bulky gaming laptops of old are gone, and now is the time to embrace a machine that is worthy of you—stylish on the outside, savage on the inside. At 24mm thin and 2.3kg light, the Lenovo Legion Y540 Laptop was redesigned to deliver the ideal balance between epic gaming performance and practical portability.
Even more muscle per millimeter
Expert craftsmanship extends beyond design. The Y540 represents the culmination of thousands of engineering hours to deliver a laptop that is both powerful and thin. To support up to 3200 MHz DDR4 memory, PCIe SSD storage, and more, our engineers combined their expertise in battery, I/O placement, thermals, and motherboard design to pack the best hardware into one powerful gaming laptop.
Take your games to the edge
With its thin bezels, the Y540 packs more than 2 million pixels into a near-edgeless 15-inch FHD display. Combined with up to 144 Hz refresh rate, 300 nits of brightness, and an IPS Antiglare screen, this laptop brings your favorite games to life, for breathtakingly immersive gameplay on the go.
Go inside the action
Dolby Atmos® pulls you into the game with powerful, moving audio that sweeps all around and above you with amazing precision and realism. A leap forward from surround sound, it gives you a competitive edge via the new Sound Radar overlay. Know where specific sounds are coming from and hear audio that heightens your sense of awareness and immerses you in a more intense gaming experience.
Time to strike
Intense firefights require the most responsive of controls, and the Y540 keyboard delivers best-in-class gaming controls to give you the edge over any opponent. Full-sized and top of the line, this keyboard delivers 100% anti-ghosting, laser-engraved WASD highlights, less than 1 ms response time, white backlighting, and more for ultimate control of your system. Further, the Y540 features Windows Precision drivers with gesture control, for effortless input whether at work or play.

Coldfront brings the latest features that a dual-channel thermal system can provide, including individual CPU and GPU cooling for cooler system temperatures, four thermal vents for improved airflow, dedicated heat syncs for cooler keyboard temperatures, and 70 individual fan blades per channel to reduce system noise.
