In electronic music, this term has a specific meaning: it means to press a note or notes before letting up previous notes, such that there is no time at which no note on the keyboard is being pressed (or the equivalent in MIDI, in which note on messages are sent for new notes before note off messages are sent for previous notes).  Some synths have specific playing modes which react to legato playing; for example, a common portamento mode is that portamento occurs when playing legato but not when playing staccato.
