expired Lenovo Legion Y540 15" Laptop, Core i7-9750H, 8GB RAM, GeForce 1660ti 6GB $1,439 Delivered @ Lenovo


Killer deal for a solid gaming laptop.

The $1,604.88 version seems like a solid deal too, +$145 for 256GB extra storage, a nicer (but still 60hz) screen, and significantly faster shipping time.

Single channel RAM so you can chuck in another stick for a decent performance bump

    Is this really good deal?
    No thunderbolt no fingerprint.

    But screen is ips…


      I'd say yes as I think it's the lowest price of a 1660ti laptop… You will need a second 8GB RAM stick and more storage so really looking at ~$1700 though competitors would be the likes of metabox or Acer Helios 300 or dell g5 are all well over $2000 for similar specs.

    I’ve been thinking about this, as I’m after a gaming laptop. Only thing is it’s 60hz, as my son plays a lot of fps. No option to upgrade to 144hz.

      $1400 gaming desktop will bring him more joy and thankful to you….

        That was the other option too, as to carrying a 1k laptop around school. Cheap laptop for school & A gaming desktop at home.

          If he has no need for a gaming laptop other than to play games at home it's a bad proposition imo. Battery life is worse, it's heavier, it's bulkier, it's louder…

          Second getting him a nice desktop and a cheap laptop 😁


        How much of the $1400 should be dedicated to keyboard and screen if I were to budget for a desktop? Would $400 be reasonable or too much? With $1000 left, would that still be enough for a gaming desktop with a good video card?

      100%, spend like 1.5k on a desktop and it'll set him up for much better reliability and performance. Much better than gaming laptops, try to use laptops for productivity based stuff if possible.
      I just built a new desktop recently, i say definitely go with the ryzen 3600. Currently best bang for buck out there right now. If you have any questions let me know.


      You can always plug it into an external monitor to get higher refresh rates. At this price, 60hz is the norm.


      I would suggest buying a gaming desktop. I bought a gaming laptop some years ago and regret spending $2000+ on a gaming laptop is wasting.


    Would definitely buy this if my six year old ideapad is dead

    RTX2060, 16GB and 512GB SSD was 16XX AUD before (just a couple weeks ago) way way way better deal.No wonder it went out of stock rather quickly. Too late to pull the trigger.

    Folks who want to buy this - do note battery life is utter garbage. Reviews on YT suggest mixed productivity use would only yield around 4 hours. Plenty of the people on the forum have complained way under 4 hour of usage.


      Whats the Ge 1660ti comparable to on the desktop range?

      Not negging you in any way but it's pretty amazing how much tech has changed in just 20 years. If a laptop had 4 hours of battery life 20 years ago the reviews would be raving and giving it 10/10 lol.


      Building your own desktop pc is probably the way to go if you're not looking for portability that comes with a laptop. Just built a new rig myself. R5 3600, 2060 Super 8GB, 16Gb ram @3200, & 512Gb M.2. Came in just a shade over $1500


        Could you give the full specs of your rig. I am planning to build one myself


          Full specs. I decided to go with AMD for the Mobo & CPU, better value for money & the latest Gen is really good. The motherboard just needs a Bios update to support the CPU.

          Bought these parts from Umart

          Thermaltake ToughPower Gold 550W PSU - $109.00
          WD Blue 3D NAND SSD M.2 SATA500GB - $95.00
          Gigabyte B450M-S2H AM4 mATX Motherboard - $109.00
          Cooler Master MasterBox NR400 Tempered Glass mATX Compact Case - $79.00
          AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6 Core AM4 3.6GHz CPU with Wraith Stealth Cooler - $315.00
          Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 Super Windforce 8G OC - $665.00

          And the RAM from amazon

          Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200Mhz - $148.00

          I picked up all my parts from Umart, so only had to pay for shipping on the ram. just over $1500 after Cashrewards


      Not the HP price error ones?

    I dunno about you guys, but I prefer the HP Omen at $499

    Very close to pulling the trigger. Come on 12% cashrewards cash back. Currently it’s 4%.


    what's the cooling like on these? I do a lot of number crunching on software development… currently have an acer predator that revs the fans up hard whenever things get complicated.


    DaveLee has a video on this


    so tempting….


      Fot light-moderate gaming yes.

      But this laptop is designed to be gaming first, everything else second, by virtue of the fact that it is essentially a brick + the battery is way too small. You cannot bring this to work or uni without bringing your charger.


        I'm just considering it because my room has limited space for a desktop PC (and partially electricity), so battery life isn't a huuuuge concern and neither is portability.

        Do you think that GPU is comparable to a GTX 1060?


    The $1604 model has 14% shopback today. So it comes out to around $1380.


      Yeah better deal. But the cashback should not include GST. Total is about ~$1400. Doesn't matter anyway as it's about to end.
