Lenovo Legion Y520 Tower review: The budget sibling of the Legion line

A smaller case and lesser hardware keep the Legion Y520T’s price down.

The Legion Y520 Tower (Y520T) is the entry-level model of Lenovo’s Legion gaming line of pre-built PCs — I also reviewed the Y720T and the Y920T — aimed to cut the price down significantly while also delivering a solid gaming experience. Let’s take a look at how it all comes together, and how it compares not only to its larger siblings, but to some other popular pre-built PCs on the market.
