The screen also features IPS wide viewing angles and thin bezels. It’s accompanied by a backlit keyboard. Besides the GeForce video cards, the Legion Y530 packs fast 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8300H quad-core or i7-8750H six core processor, up to 16GB of RAM, hard drive or solid state drive data storage or both SSD and HDD, and a 52.5 WHr battery.
