Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo Legion 7i is a fantastic gaming laptop that blends a professional aluminum design with some seriously impressive gaming performance. It follows the popular current trend of creating 'hybrid' gaming laptops that tone down the traditional aesthetic in favor of something that could pass as a business device if required. The configuration we tested will cost around $2,450 / £1,780 (about AU$3,200), but there's a selection of different specifications to choose from.

  • Nothing in particular
