The Lenovo Legion 7i is the company’s latest offering in its gaming laptop portfolio, packing some of the best PC hardware the industry has to offer. Apart from just being a gaming laptop, because it has top-of-the-line specs, it can also be your personal workstation. It can pretty much do it all, quite literally.
Before we get into the laptop’s unique features, here’s a quick spec sheet for you to familiarise yourself with the Legion 7i.
Lenovo Legion 7i – Specifications
Workstation By Day
Whether you’re working from home, or out and about meeting clients, your laptop is the most crucial item in getting work done. There’s no harm in getting a laptop that delivers superb performance, and looking stylish doing it.
Legion TrueStrike Keyboard
The part you interact most with with your laptop is the keyboard, so why not let it give you the best experience? The Legion TrueStrike Keyboard features soft-landing switches with a 1.3mm key travel distance that leverages a second transition curve design. Big words, but what this means is that you’ll have a superior typing experience that is both comfortable and precise.
When it comes to the layout, unlike other laptops, the keys on the Legion 7i isn’t miniaturized and crammed into one narrow rectangle. These are full-sized keys, complete with a larger arrow cluster, dedicated media keys, and a numberpad for you to do quick number inputs. Be it typing or gaming, the entire experience is made more spacious and comfortable.
Now, take a look at your current laptop. Are some of the keys already fading from prolonged use? The Legion 7i’s keycaps ensure durability with a layer of anti-oil coating to resist abrasion. This means the legends on the keys are more durable, and can last longer than standard laptop keyboards.
Improved Battery Life
The Legion 7i’s 80Wh battery comes equipped with a smart dynamic discharge power management system. This allows it to retain most of its battery power, by reducing power discharge down to a minimum. On top of having a sleek Aluminum chassis, the power adapter also has a sleek and slim design, making it even less of a burden in your backpack.
Besides that, the laptop’s Rapid Charge Pro feature can revitalize the laptop from 0% – 50% in less than 30 minutes. Combine that with the Hybrid Mode and Advanced Optimus Technology, the laptop can intelligently switch between the dedicated and integrated GPU for improved battery life. For maximum durability, Q Control 3.0 allows for Quiet Mode, enabling the laptop to lower its voltage requirement for unplugged marathon productivity.
Premium Performance With Maximum Portability
Whether you’re working from home or on-the-go, the Legion 7i’s is designed to be extremely portable. Weighing just 2.1kg and measuring 2cm thin, it is specifically made to deliver the best performance in an ultraportable design. It can easily be carried around at home, setup your battle station anywhere, or brought along with you to your business meetings.
The Legion Coldfront 2.0 feature also unites both hardware and software to achieve better airflow, enabling the laptop to stay cool and quiet. No more worries about the laptop overheating on your lap or in your bag.
Display Accuracy Is Key
The Lenovo Legion 7i has a large 15.6-inch IPS panel, capable of outputting FHD resolution. This lets you enjoy pixel perfect images on a large screen, without any viewing angle colour distortion. That Netflix series you’ve been binge watching would look a whole better on this, trust me.
When it comes to content creation, the laptop’s display has all the essentials you’ll need to get started. The panel covers 100% of the Adobe sRGB colour gamut, as well as VESA DisplayHDR 400 for improved colour accuracy. Colour grading will be made so much more efficient, and you won’t need an external display just to get your colours right.
During video playback or if you’re checking your content for quality, the display also has a peak brightness of 500nits, furnished with deeper blacks and brighter whites, thanks to its support for Dolby Vision.
Battlestation By Night
Night has fallen, and your assignments are done. It’s game time, so unwind, and have that bit of fun you deserve. The RGB lighting comes on, and you’re ready to be transported into a world of fantasy where you define your own stories and craft your own adventures.
Legion TrueStrike, Precision That Counts
The Legion TrueStrike truly shines when it’s time to game. Each key is illuminated with over 16 million different colours via the integrated Corsair iCUE support. Whatever your gaming setup theme is, there’s bound to be a colour theme that matches it.
The TrueStrike keyboard is precision-crafted to deliver 100% anti-ghosting and sub-millisecond response times. No matter what you press on, each key is instantly registered with hair-trigger accuracy so you never miss a spell, or fail to perform that crucial parry.
The soft-landing switches offer a tactile gaming experience, making every keypress deeper with equal force. The 1.3mm key travel distance also prevents any misclick, and the large key design strives to provide the best comfort for long hours of gaming.
Legion Coldfront 2.0
The Legion 7i doesn’t just stay cool when you work, it stays cooler when you game. With AAA game titles pushing your CPU and GPU to the max, heat management definitely comes to mind. To combat this, Lenovo’s Legion Coldfront 2.0 cooling system uses both hardware and software to improve airflow and lower system temperatures.
There’s an integrated 2mm Vapor Chamber, with an updated 6-point thermal sensor array that functions to keep the laptop chilled at all times. The dual-fan system is made of 73 liquid-crystal polymer fan blades to optimize the four dedicated thermal channels to cycle air efficiently while providing maximized thermal performance.
The best part – the laptop supports Dual Burn feature, which pushes both the CPU and GPU together to their in-game limits. What you get is unrivaled performance with steady FPS without any thermal throttling.
Battery Made For Endurance
Featuring the new Advanced Optimus technology, designed in collaboration with NVIDIA, The Lenovo Legion series gaming PCs and laptops are the first to adopt such technology. This feature helps to boost battery life even further, be it for work or gaming.
What it does is basically switching between the laptop’s integrated GPU and dedicated GPU automatically, to help you preserve battery life. When you’re only working on a Word document or watching a movie, the laptop would use the integrated GPU. But when you’re editing video or gaming, this is where the Advanced Optimus Technology kicks in and switches to the dedicated NVIDIA GPU for maximum graphics performance.
Immersive Life-Like Gaming Experience
For maximum immersion, the Lenovo Legion’s display is where the magic truly happens. You already know the Legion 7i has a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display, but what you might not know is that it supports HDR, a refresh rate of 240Hz, and a response time of under 1ms. Most AAA titles support HDR (High Dynamic Range) output, which can display brighter and more vivid colours. Blacks are darker, and every visual that comes out of the laptop’s display has a cinema-level immersion.
The standard refresh rate we have on our monitors these days are 60Hz, and that’s 60 images displayed to our eyes within a second. Quadrupling that amount, you have a 240Hz refresh rate, resulting in smoother in-game graphics and transitions. Every particle, every movement in game just flows infinitely better for maximum eye pleasure.
The sub-1ms response time determines how fast your mouse input is translated onto the display. Not only is the Legion 7i’s display bright and vivid, it is also smooth and fast, thanks to OverDrive and NVIDIA’s G-Sync Technology. No more screen tears or stuttering when you’re taking down demons in hell, or rescuing mercenaries on the battlefield.
The Lenovo Legion 7i is an excellent gaming laptop that helps you be productive when you need to be. It’s ultraportable to be carried around, and doesn’t drop the ball when it comes to performance as it packs Intel’s latest 10th generation processor and Nvidia’s GeForce RTX graphics card for the best CPU and GPU performance.
To top it all off, you get all that raw power encased in an elegant high-grade aluminium chassis, making it stylish on the outside, savage on the inside.
