Always at the top of the category with its Legion gaming laptops, Lenovo has announced the seventh generation, also in the i version (Intel) and with the ultra-thin Slim declination, in order to “go beyond the limits and offer a gaming experience smarter at maximum performance “.

The AMD Advantage Edition (summer, from € 3,199) and 7 (AMD Advantage Edition, summer, from € 2,799) are understated but sporty elegant notebooks, with a unibody design chassis made using aerospace-grade aluminum and magnesium with a metal coating. precision machined (with CNC machines), in order to keep the terminals compact (19 mm thick for 2.5 kg) despite having a 99.99 Whr monstre battery, which can be quickly charged, up to 135 Whr, via microUSB Type-C.

Basically, the display is a panel with 16:10 aspect ratio resolved at WQXGA, diagonalized at 16 inches, with high dynamic range, vision protection (as per TÜV eye safe validation) and Tobii Experience implementation (Aware to protect privacy and security, Horizon to track your head in immersive games): options range from an IPS with 3 ms response time, 100% sRGB coverage, 165 Hz refresh rate, 500 nits of brightness, VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification, Dolby support Vision and Nvidia G-SYNC at one with variable refresh rate from 165 to 240 Hz, and 100% RGB. The webcam is now 1080p with E-Shutter. On the audio side there are two Harman calibrated stereo speakers, with the benefits of Nahimic and the smart amp.

The surface of the machine body includes the Legion TrueStrike keyboard: the latter has keys with a deep stroke (1.5 mm) and a curved back: there is no lack of RGB backlighting per key, and there is the function, with interchangeable keys, WASD Force Sensor that , by pressing only the keys with a progressive force, he is able to accelerate his own character or action.

Inside operate processors, in the first model, up to the 12th generation Intel Core HX Series (up to the i9-12900HX) against the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX of the second, while in terms of dedicated graphics cards, one can contemplate in the first case an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti (with a maximum TGP of 175 W) and in the second a Radeon RX 6850M XT (up to 145 W). For the memories, support for 4800 or 5600 MHz DDR5 RAM (up to 32 GB) and SSD storage with 4th generation PCIe interfaces (up to 2 TB) are provided

Equipped with BT 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6E, the two Legion 7 have, for the Intel version, the RJ45 for Gigabit Ethernet (2.5G), the combo jack, three USB 3.2 of 1st gen (one Type-C), one HDMI 2.1, one USB 3.2 Type-C of 2nd gen, (with DisplayPort 1.4 and Power Delivery 135W) and two USB 4.0 with Thunderbolt 4 and Display Port 1.4. The AMD version retains the same combo, HDMI and Gigabit options, but continues with four USB 3.2 (2nd gen s and Type-C) and one USB Type-C 2nd gen with 135W Power Delivery and DisplayPort 1.4.

The Lenovo Legion Slim 7i and Slim 7 notebooks (summer, from 2,199 euros) share a thin (16 mm) and light (2 kg) chassis with the previous models, in the name of a unibody design always obtained with magnesium and aluminum of aerospace grade under a CN metal coating: the footprint is reduced, equal to that of a 15-inch terminal.

Wide open, they reveal resolute 16-inch 16:10 displays at 2560 x 1600 pixels with a screen-to-body extended from the past 86 to the current 93%, again with high dynamic range, color calibration and respect for sight (here the certification is the TÜV Rheinland Gold Label): specifically, there are options with 500 nits, 100% sRGB color space coverage and up to 240 Hz variable refresh rates, but also options (only in the Intel option) with Mini -LED, 1,250 nits of luminance, DCI-P3 at 100%, and 165 Hz refresh rate. To support them, we find dedicated GPUs such as the GeForce RTX 3070 designed by Nvidia with a TGP up to 100 W, and the Radeon 6800S launched by AMD with 80 W of TGP. The audio section, improved with Nahimic optimizations, counts on the collaboration of Harman Kardon and includes two 2W speakers each.

The webcam (with E-Shutter) is (in case you disdain the HD option) 1080p and the battery is 99.99 Whr, with Super Rapid Charge in Type-C up to 135Wh, or 71.1 Wh with fast charge Rapid Charge Pro type. At the control rudders, the manufacturer has placed, always with the i which identifies the Intel model, 12th gen Intel processors of the HK series (up to i9-12900HK), or in the other interaction, up to to AMD’s Ryzen 9 6900HX APU: the RAM, DDR5 4800 MHz, reaches a maximum of 24 GB (with 8 GB soldered on the board), while the NVMe SSD storage (PCIe 4.0) reaches its peak with 2 TB.

The notebook series in question also boasts a useful peculiarity that will allow you to carry fewer cables behind, thanks to the revision of the rear dashboard of the input output interfaces, now including HDMI 2.1 ports (video signals up to 4K 120 Hz). Both the Intel and AMD models have the 3.5 mm combo jack and SD reader, but the AMD version includes two 2nd gen USB Type-C (with 135 W Power Delivery, and DisplayPort 1.4) and as many USB 3.2 Type- A of the 2nd gen, and the Intel version has only one port for both types of USB, but relaunches with a Thunderbolt 4 (which, like Type-C, has DisplayPort 1.4 and Power Delivery 135 W) . Among the wireless connections, Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 stand out.
