Difference between Y520 2018 model and previous model

Hi,

 

Please tell me what is the difference between the "2018 Lenovo Legion Y520 15.6" FHD IPS Gaming Laptop Computer, Intel Quad-Core i7-7700HQ up to 3.80GHz, 16GB DDR4, 256GB SSD+2TB HDD, 4GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti Graphics, 802.11ac, HDMI, Win 10" model and the previous model "Lenovo Legion Y520 Gaming Laptop - Core i7-7700HQ, 16GB RAM, 2TB HDD + 256GB SSD, 1050Ti 4GB, 15.6" Full HD"? I don't see any difference in configuration. So I am confused what is new in 2018 model.

 

The links for these are as below for your reference:

Re: Difference between Y520 2018 model and previous model

the major difference between these two laptops is the Screen, the latest one has an IPS display but the older doesn't ..

and IPS display is a huge improvement, go for it

*after reviewing the links again, I think the older model has no Turbo Boost up to 3.8 GHz for the Processor, I'm not sure, but it's not there in the details

Re: Difference between Y520 2018 model and previous model

Thanks for the clarification. Could you tell me why the new model is heavier than the old one? The old laptop weighs 2.4 kg the new one weighs 4.15 kg.

Also, few reviews of the old model say they faced keyboard issues. Has that been solved in the old model? Could you tell me whether there is any keyboard issues in the new model?

you are welcome

for the weight difference 'm not really sure honestly, I'll keep searching about it .. it may have newer internals that weigh more, like the battery and other things, and the newer screen may weigh more also

for the keyboard yeah I can confirm that it has no issues, I have the newer version myself, the exact same laptop in your link (the IPS version) and no problems at all
