Lenovo recently launched its first gaming store in the Philippines, the Legion Concept Store, located inside the largest mall in the country, the SM City North EDSA in Quezon City, allowing visitors to find, test, and purchase a wide range of Lenovo and Legion products.
As part of the experience visiting the new establishment, mallgoers may also play games there using Legion gaming laptops and desktop PCs. Adding excitement, the store will occassionally host gaming events to engage with the local gaming community.
Launched in the Philippines two years ago, Lenovo's Legion line has established a significant foothold in the country, continuing to increase in sales and popularity among the Filipino gaming community.
“As the gaming market grows exponentially every year, we at Lenovo would like to maintain our commitment in brining the best performing and top-of-the-line devices to the Philippines, which includes the Legion line of gaming notebooks. The exclusive Legion store was conceptualized to support the local gaming culture and provide virtually everything that a gamer needs,” said Michael Ngan, Lenovo Philippines Country General Manager.
The opening of the Legion store is just the first of many planned Lenovo Legion Concept Stores set to open in select locations across the archipelago. Its inauguration coincides with the launch of Lenovo's first device to sport a NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics card, the Legion Y740 gaming laptop.
The Philippine release of the Legion Y740 boasts of having the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 which promises a 6x faster performance than the previous generation of graphic cards, suitable enough for the enjoyment of eSports professionals and mainstream gamers who mostly play the latest AAA games. In addition, this new gaming laptop can easily handle graphic intensive games, thanks to the embedded Intel Core i7-8750H processor.
“With new and upcoming PC games being increasingly demanding in terms of graphics, NVIDIA’s RTX graphics cards are what mainstream gamers need if they want to fully immerse themselves into these worlds, as it allows everyone to play at maximum settings while providing crisp and clear quality like never before,” said Ngan.
The Legion Y740 measures 19.95mm thin and weighs 2.2kg. Its other unique features are its RGB Keyboard powered by Corsair iCue and USB-C Thunderbolt 3 support. Also, it comes with 16GB RAM, a 1TB HDD + 256GB SSD memory, and a the 15.6-inch FHD IPS 144Hz (slim bezel) panel size.
The Lenovo Y740 is available for PhP 119,995 at the Legion Concept Store, Lenovo Concept Stores, and at major electronics stores nationwide.
