Despite the Legion 7i getting marketed at an expensive price, It’s still worth its value. The most expensive model, Legion 7i, comes with an Intel Core i9 chip and a NVIDIA RTX 3080 mobile GPU.
Back in January, Lenovo assembled their up-to-date PCs of the time with AMD’s Ryzen 500 mobile CPUs. But now, they begin to incorporate the Intel H-series chips into the many new and upcoming models.
Legion 7i, also known as the most powerful system as of right now, will arrive in the US by June. Its marketing price starts at $1,769, expecting that it might go higher.
One could max out all the specs. That’s only possible because of the Intel Core i9-11980HK processor. Not only that, but also because of the NVIDIA laptop-based RTX 3080 graphics card. It runs at the power of 165 watts.
The 16-inched laptop sells with an high-qual resolution of 2560×1600 pixels at a 16:10 aspect ratio. The very same display comes along with a smooth and fast refresh rate of 165Hz. And apparently, the keyboard flashes its built-in RGB lighting by default.
Legion 5i Pro
Another 16-inched laptop will also land in June, together with the Legion 7i. The other laptop came with the label of Legion 5i Pro. It also starts at the price of $1,329. The only difference between the two is that its specs are just a bit lower. It came down with the options of Intel Core i7-11800H or i7-11400H processors. Sad to say, there’s no option for an RTX 3080 GPU. As an alternative, the 5i Pro comes in with an RTX 3050 and 3050Ti GPUs that reach up to an RTX 3070.
If the laptop is bought with only 8GB RAM, then the price could fall lower. The 2TB SSD option came to an end. Although, it still goes with a screen resolution of 2560×1600 pixels.
For the people who’re on a budget, Legion 5i might be the best pick. It comes with two screen sizes, the smaller one being the 15-inch and the bigger one being 17-inch. By the month of its arrival, July, it’ll start at the price of $969.
When it comes to the specs, the 5i models share a couple of similarities with the 5i Pro. They’ll come with an Intel Core i7-11800H or i7-11400H processor, one or the other. The optional GPUs range to an RTX 3070 and from an RTX 3050. Although, the resolution of the display in the default screen stays at 1080p.
The 17-inch version of the 5i weighs up to as heavy as 6.6 lbs. The other products weigh mostly around 5.3 down to 5.5 lbs. All the three models of Legion share the same features of a 720p web camera, Wi-Fi 6, and two Thunderbolt 4 ports.
While these legion models haven’t even come out yet, Lenovo’s preparing a new gaming monitor. It goes smoothly and fast with a refresh rate of 360Hz along with the G-Sync support of NVIDIA. The Legion Y25g-30 will soon arrive a few months later, in October. It’ll sell for $699. One of its best features is the 24.5-inch 1080p display that holds a response time of just 1-millisecond.
