The laptops also feature the new Legion ColdFront Hyper thermal design with fans spinning inward, eliminating the discomfort of constant hot air blowing onto your hand while gaming (it now expels hot air to the rear). A dedicated sealed chamber maintains optimal system temperatures. This adds extra 25W of power in Extreme Mode, or a 2°C cooler experience and 2db less noise compared to previous generation.

No word as the the retail price of these units but they will most probably be released in the Philippines this April 2024.
