New Lenovo Legion 7 Gaming Laptops

Published on

Lenovo’s Legion gaming laptop series has two new products: the Legion 7/7iAnd the Legion Slim 7/7i. The “i” stands for “Intel,” which means the other model is AMD-powered.

These laptops offer a variety of features. 16-inch screensWe like this trend very much. We felt that the display space needed to grow, especially for graphics, with all the industrial design advancements.

You would have guessed by the product naming that the “Slim” laptop is more about Mobility, while the “non-Slim” is oriented towards Performance.

Lenovo claims these laptops are the “most powerful” and the “most mobile” 16-inch gaming laptops. That’s a bold claim we’d love to put to the test in the future.

Lenovo Legion 7i and 7i Slim 7

Weighing in at just 4.5 LbsYou can configure the Slim gaming laptops with a Core 9-12900HK or Ryzen9 6900HX processor, and either a GeForce GTX 3070 (100W), Radeon RX6800S or Core i9-12900HK GPU. Your configuration will determine the exact mix and match, but these are excellent options for such an inexpensive computer.

There’s 8GB of onboard RAM (4800MHz DDR5), paired with one slot that can accept a maximum of 16GB of RAM for a Maximum of 24GB. Storage-wise, you have the option to order upto 2TB SSD via PCIe Gen4.

Lenovo offers several options for the 16 inch display, including refresh rates up to 144Hz 165-240HzIt has excellent color capabilities with 100% sRGB, 100% DCI-P3 or Adobe RGB. All models have a response time of 3ms and brightness ranges from 500 NITs all the way up to an Incredible 1250 NITsMini-LED Option

You will be directed to the G–SYNC display depending on which GPU you have selected. The highest resolution is 2560×1600, which is excellent for gaming, but there’s also a more affordable 1920×1200/350NITs display.

I haven’t tested the 2x2W speakers, but they look pretty good on paper and are supported by the increasingly popular Nahimic Audio software.

The battery has a capacity of approximately 99.99Wh  is the maximum legally allowed in laptops, but a Super Rapid Charge looks very promising. It can charge up to 70% of your laptop in as little as 30 minutes, which is faster than any ThinkPads we have tested. This technology should hopefully spread to other Lenovo laptops.

Last but not least, the RGB keyboard (with NumPad), with 1.3mm-travel key is my favorite. It is great for both typing and playing.

Lenovo Legion 7a and 7i

These are two 5.5 LbsThe slim models are very similar in appearance to the laptops, but Lenovo can have more powerful components due to its extra space.

Lenovo has spent a lot of time improving the cooling system. This includes software. A popular game has been used to train an AI to balance power between CPU and GPU usage. This allows the GPU draw more power (= better graphics performance).

The industrial design language of all the Legion 7 series shares the same aesthetics with the CNC-aluminumchassis and an extra camera ridge at top of screen. Non-Slim laptops feature environmental RGB lighting at the sides and front.

The chassis back is illuminated with the port names, which are very important details. It makes a huge difference in dimly lit areas. Sometimes, it’s the little things.

Depending on the configuration you choose, you can select an Intel Core i9-12900HX and Ryzen9 6900HX CPUs. You can also opt for a GeForce RTX3080T 16GB or AMD Radeon Radeon Radeon Radeon XT 12GB.

You have two 4800MHz DDR5 slots for maximum 32GB memory. All ports and display options are identical to the Legion Slim 7 including the general battery configuration.

The new Lenovo Legion 7 series is impressive in specs and felt solid when handled in real life. These laptops are capable of doing what Lenovo claims they can and pack a big punch for their weight.
