Lenovo‘s 2022 Legion 7 Series gaming laptops are designed to make gaming on the go as easy as possible, with its 16-inch portable powerhouses that offer 2560 x 1600 resolution displays to game anywhere you want. Similar to previous years, the latest 7th generation models come in two variants, the Legion 7 and the slimmer Legion Slim 7.
Like other flagship laptops introduced in 2022, both the Legion 7 and Legion Slim 7 come equipped with up to AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX processor (or up to 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12900HX processor for the Legion 7i and the Legion Slim 7i).
For the graphics, it has AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT (Legion 7), AMD Radeon RX 6800S (Legion Slim 7), NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti (Legion 7i), or NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (Legion Slim 7i). The laptops also pack in DDR5 memory and Gen 4 PCIe SSD storage to keep everything running fast and smooth.
All the Legion 7 series has a 16-inch 2560 x 1600 resolution screen that hits up to 1,250 nits peak brightness, with a typical 165Hz refresh rates, and 100% DCI-P3 colour spectrum for accurate colour displays.
Incorporating Legion’s own Coldfront 4.0 cooling system and a better-designed chassis for improved airflow, the Legion can push up to 115W in combined thermal design power (TDP) without throttling.
The Legion 7 comes in a durable package of aerospace-grade magnesium-aluminium alloy chassis for those moments that you need to express your gamer rage. The chassis is 19mm thick and weighs a reasonable 2.5kg for the Legion 7, while the Legion Slim 7 goes more portable at 16mm in thickness and 2kg in weight. Not super light, but easily portable to game anywhere you want.
The Legion 7 has its own TrueStrike keyboard that features curved keys with deeper travel as well as a new WASD Force Sensor Tech that is said to accelerate your in-game character the more force you apply to the keys. Its RGB elements on the keyboard and chassis can also be synced with what’s displayed on your screen for that extra gamer bling.
It has the maximum-allowable 99.99Wh of battery capacity, with zero-to-full charging within 2 hours. Generational design changes also mean that the laptops are quiet when running in Stealth mode, hitting under 30dB which is the sound of a whisper.
Lenovo’s 2022 Legion 7 series (7th generation) will be available in stores within the next few weeks, with pricing starting from US$1,519.
