If you’re sick of RGB and the aggressive, sometimes Transformers-like look of many of today’s gaming laptops, the Legion Y545 doesn’t look basic, it looks ideal. Chunky vents are limited to the two on the spine, which also holds a mildly texturized port bank. The smooth, plastic lid is quiet, save for a prominent Legion logo that lights up in white. The two raised ridges outlining the logo are subtle but add a little bit more dimension, saving the lid from being flat and overtly boring.
The deck is of the same vein, including a straightforward keyboard layout wasting no space. However, the deck hosts a sufficient amount of space under the keyboard for your wrists, as well as a Harman logo. The deck is soft touch, but not the softest. A Legion-logo-shaped power button is either solid white when the PC’s on or blinking if in sleep mode.
A light gray Legion logo is inscribed in the display’s thick bottom bezel. But more disturbing: The webcam is also shoved in the bottom bezel.
