Lenovo Legion 7i: A Laptop For Work And Play
[Compared to the previous years, brands have redefined the hardware and look of gaming laptops. It is currently also being used by professionals in content creation, multimedia arts, and others who need a powerful, daily workhorse that can handle heavy graphics-intensive software. One laptop that we have in mind is the Lenovo Legion 7i that both looks good and delivers seamless processing power. Check out below why it deserves to be on your Christmas shopping list.
Bold and stylish design
The Legion 7i has an aluminum chassis with an anodized and sandblasted finish in Slate Grey. It has an engraved Legion logo with an illuminated Y on the right side of the lid. Its bottom and rear vents are equipped with Corsair iCue RGB lighting, illuminating when it is placed on a surface and can be customized through software. Equipped with slimmer side and top bezels, it has a top-notch where the HD webcam with a TrueBlock shutter rests for privacy and a balanced weight that allows users to open the lid single-handedly. Along the gaming laptop’s edges are the vertically oriented vents and drilled holes above the keyboard and the bottom cover that gives enough breathing space for the device.
Immersive display and speakers
Opening the lid reveals a 15.6-inch FHD In-Plane Switching (IPS) display mated with a 240Hz refresh rate and <1ms response rate for a more immersive viewing and gaming experience. Apart from Dolby Vision support, its display also has up to 100% sRGB color coverage that adds depth, contrast, and vividness to videos. This helps professionals such as video editors and graphic artists in calibrating their monitors according to their needs. It has 500 nits of brightness that allows users to use it even outdoors. The gaming laptop’s display is also Display HDR400-certified, bringing in support for HDR content and games out of the box. To match its display, the Legion 7i has dual speakers with Dolby Atmos and smart amplifiers that make gaming and binge-watching of movies and TV series more enticing.
Powered by the latest 10th Generation Intel Core i7-10750H processor, the Legion 7i can handle light to heavy tasks such as rendering videos and running graphic-intensive games. It is mated with a 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 RAM and 1TB M.2 PCle NVME storage for faster processing capabilities and speedy bootup. Onboard, this model of Legion 7i sports an NVIDIA RTX 2070 graphics card with ray-tracing capabilities, giving players a more realistic view of various in-game environments. This also improves the game’s visuals, delivering life-like and real-time rendering of light reflection, shadows, and refractions in the titles that support ray tracing.
High-end cooling system
The Legion 7i (Intel Core i7-10750H, NVIDIA RTX 2070 graphics card) comes with its own thermal system called the Legion Coldfront 2.0, which has a slim, 2mm Vapor Chamber inside the laptop that pulls cooler air into the system and pushes system heat outside through air vents placed at the rear of the gaming laptop for efficient heat dissipation. It is specifically designed to redirect heat away from the user’s reach by pushing the air out from the laptop’s back. The dual Liquid Crystal Polymer fans and improved 6 points sensor array work together to predict temperatures and move air in advance, keeping the unit cool yet silent. Through the Lenovo Vantage, users may also choose among three thermal profiles according to the performance and fan speed they need: Performance Mode, Balance Mode, and Quiet Mode.
Gamer-friendly keyboard design
A gaming laptop won’t be complete without a good, full-sized keyboard with RGB lighting. The Lenovo Legion 7i features a TrueStrike keyboard with dedicated media controls, large arrow keys, and a number pad. Designed to be more tactile and responsive, it has soft landing switches with up to 1.3mm key travel and a response time of <1ms that prevents keyboard ghosting. This provides more accuracy, ensuring that players won’t miss any skills during gameplay. And for added aesthetics, it has RGB lighting on each key, which can be customized through the Corsair iCue software.
Good battery life
Compared to Lenovo’s other gaming laptops, the Legion 7i ships with a large 80Whr battery that can be charged up to 50% within just 30 minutes with Rapid Charge Pro. On paper, the Legion 7i can last up to 8 hours. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA Advanced Optimus technology boosts battery life by dynamically switching between the Integrated Graphics Processing Unit (iGPU) for improving battery life and discrete NVIDIA GPU (dGPU) for higher frame rates.
Packed with innovative technologies and beyond average hardware, the Windows 10 Home-powered Legion 7i is an ideal laptop for work and play. It has a solid build and stylish form factor that matches well with its internal components and performance. It is indeed a device for work and play that deserves a spot on every gamer’s wish list.
